How old is Heather Chase?
Heather revealed on the Below Deck Season 9 premiere that she is 25.
Usually busy telling stews what to do and accommodating charter guests with a five-star service, she has worked on yachts throughout her twenties.
Heather has been in a relationship with boyfriend Kegan Tyler Emms since 2017, going official when she would have been around 23.
During her twenties, she has added more to her resume: being a yoga instructor, chief stew and even cleaning dildos at one point.
Although claiming she is in her twenties, several viewers think she may not be being truthful about her real age and could be in her forties.
Heather opens up about childhood
After Heather tried to intervene with charter guest Justin Richards’ argument with Terri Augustyn, he cussed at her, but later apologised.
When he done so, the chief stew opened up about how the incident triggered her childhood trauma for being “blonde and white” in Hawaii.
She claims she was the only white girl with blonde hair in her school class, and went on to say she was bullied for that reason.
However, it’s clear to see on Twitter that most Below Deck fans are not having it, and don’t sympathise with her past.

I could never properly put into words how much this island & community means to me… forever a student, forever a steward, forever grateful.
She appears to be incredibly close to her grandparents, with many fans thinking her grandpa looks eerily similar to Captain Lee.
