Bosun Ross McHarg is taking a lot of flack for his drunken player antics on Below Deck season 10. Viewers bashed Ross for leading on Deckhand Katie Glaser and for making a drunken fool of himself repeatedly on the crew nights out. Below Deck fans are dragging Ross’s immature and creepy behavior at age 38.
The smooth-talking British expat easily wooed Katie early on in the charter season. However, the self-described sex addict, who is very open about his past escapades, didn’t want to commit to a formal boatmance. Second Stew Alissa Humber had her eyes on Ross, too, and he obliged her advances after she was rejected by Australian Deckhhand Ben Willoughby. The two made out in the hot tub and Katie claimed she was done with the bad-boy bosun. Yet she couldn’t resist his charm and ended up hooking up with him in the shower. When the crew got a day trip to Saint Lucia’s pitons, Ross again disrespected Katie by shamelessly flirty with Alissa, including holding her hand and getting touchy.
Below Deck Season 10 Fans Call Ross An Immature Creep For Drunken Behavior
The new deck-stew Tyler Walker shocked fans when he said Ross’s childish behavior surprised him because he’s 38 years-old.
“I understand that I’m only 23. But I have a better moral compass at the moment than Ross does. He’s 38. It’s unacceptable the way he acts,” said Tyler.
Fans on Twitter couldn’t agree more.

I feel like there’s not enough #BelowDeck this season on how Ross is a literal alcoholic and self admitted sex addict…everyone’s just like ignored it? The random times he mentions things sound like cries for help, homie needs a 30 day facility not a yacht to bosun

On episode 10, his drunk antic continued.
he burped loudly in the van in Chef Rachel Hargrove’s face.
“My brother crosses the line with liquor,” said Deckhand Tony Duarte.
He then repeatedly embraced Alissa throughout the crew night out and held her hand at the restaurant and when returning to the boat.
“I would love to kiss you,” Ross slurred to Alissa.
“I know, because I just want to flirt with you,” she responded. “I believe I’m hotter than her.”
“You [bleeping] know how bad I am,” Ross said.
Part of it wasn’t Ross’s fault, though. Alissa took every opportunity while he was blackout drunk to hit on him. She buttoned up his shirt at dinner. She put a flower in his hair as she said, “Rossie, Bossie. Putting a little flower in his hair.”
“I flirt with Ross because he’s a scumbag. And it’s just fun to see everybody squirm,” was the bizarre reason Alissa gave in her confessional.
Sadly, Below Deck season 10’s episode 11 preview reveals Katie forgives Ross the following day. Some fans agree with Alissa that she has no self-respect. What most fans agree on, though, is a 38-year-old like Ross should behave more like an adult. Fans also feel sorry for Below Deck season 8’s Elizabeth Frankini dating him for four years.
