ELIZABETH Frankini was cut loose from Bravo’s Below Deck yacht crew in an episode on season eight.
Below Deck airs on Bravo Mondays at 9pm. ET.
Why was Below Deck’s Elizabeth Frankini fired from the show?
Elizabeth Frankini was cut from the Below Deck crew on February 8’s episode of the show.
“I think every charter I’ve really had to work and I’m continually putting energy and checking up on you and we’ve had numerous chats about this, but sleeping in the guest cabin was sort of, like, the final straw for me,” Francesca Rubi told Elizabeth, 30, during the episode.

“We’ve come to sort of a decision, we’re gonna have to let you go.”
Fans of the show were not shocked by the decision, as Elizabeth butt heads with Australian chief stewardess Francesca.
“I have a feeling she’s very different than how she was portrayed,” a user posted on Twitter of Elizabeth’s character on the show.
“Elizabeth was not a great stew, she should of been gone after the first trip,” another user wrote.
“Co-sign. As someone who worked in service, I’ve dealt with so many Elizabeth’s and picking up their slack,” one agreed.
What did Elizabeth say about being fired?
Elizabeth took to social media to speak out about being cut from the program.
“It was hard doing an intense job being filmed and has been difficult to watch my mistakes play out in front of millions, especially when there’s so much more going on that doesn’t make the final cut,” Elizabeth tweeted following the episode.
“It’s been a learning experience.”
Following the episode’s debut, Elizabeth and Ashling Lorger appeared on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen when things got heated between the two.
“I think you’re just not cut for yachting,” Ashling, 25, said. “It’s just not your thing … everyone has their strengths and their weaknesses.”

“I do have a lot more going in my life,” she told her former costar. “I still made a successful four and a half career out of it and I’m very proud of myself for that and I hope to work with a crew in the future that actually appreciates and supports me.”
Who else might be fired from the Below Deck crew?
Captain Lee Rosbach teased that Elizabeth’s culling from the crew might not be the last.
