Camille Lamb is hard to miss on Below Deck season 10. The blonde beauty from Mississippi turned the heads of her male crew members. Camille, who worked as a deckhand-stew aboard motor yacht St. David in Saint Lucia, also gets in some drama with Second Stew Alissa Humber. The two clash after Alissa finds Camille lazy, while Camille finds Alissa too bossy. It doesn’t help that she has to help both Chief Stew Fraser Olender‘s interior team, but also Bosun Ross McHarg‘s deck team. She also doesn’t waste time twerking and claiming Deckhand Ben Willoughby as hers for a boatmance. But there’s a lot more to this Southern girl than meets the eye. She used to date a famous quarterback and competed on American Idol. Here’s everything fans need to know about Camille from Below Deck season 10.
Below Deck Star Camille Lamb’s Instagram, TikTok, Previous Jobs & Music Career
Filming Below Deck season 10 was Camille’s second foray into reality TV in 2021. She first appeared on American Idol, getting eliminated Showstopper Round of the top 64. Camille did get a golden ticket to Hollywood, though, and got to sing for an audience of millions. She was eliminated after singing Bad Company’s “Feel Like Makin’ Love”. She also sang a duet of “You Don’t Own Me” earlier on in the singing competition.
Despite not winning the singing competition, Camille hasn’t given up on her dream. She’s still pursuing a music career and putting out videos of her singing songs on her TikTok. Camille’s Instagram also includes her showing off her singing chops. She’s a verified artist on Spotify, but hasn’t posted any original music on there yet.
Before becoming a yachtie, Camille worked as a bartender and a sailing mate/snorkel guide, per her LinkedIn. She now appears to live in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where a lot of yachties live because of all the superyachts docked there. She originally lived in Pass Christian, Mississippi.
She also worked on an old yacht called Blackhawk as a yacht stewardess for three months in the summer of 2022.
Her birthday is on June 22 and she’s either 22 or 23 years-old. Camille’s zodiac sign is Cancer, which explains her fierce loyalty to her family.
Camille’s Ex Quarterback Boyfriend, Baby Rumor & Boatmance With Ben On Below Deck Season 10
Below Deck fans were curious to know who Camille’s ex boyfriend was after she talked about him being a big-deal quarterback football star. It turns out, she dated former Ole Miss (University of Mississippi) QB star Shea Patterson. She claims he cheated on “many times”.
“I was depressed and I had anxiety and I was kind of a joke at that point. It’s like I just wanted to get away. I wanted no one to know me,” Camille said on the show about the breakdown of the relationship.
Shea and Camille appeared to start dating in 2016 when they were both freshman in college. Larry Brown Sports reported Camille kissed Shea after he won a game. The Oxford Eagle news outlet also reported about Camille’s relationship with Shea back in late 2016. Camille deleted her former Instagram and Twitter accounts she would post about their relationship after the breakup. They appear to have broken up in 2018. Although Below Deck producers posted a picture of Camille with a baby seat while she was talking about her ex, she didn’t have a baby with him. It turns out the picture was from after their breakup (deceptive show editors) and is for her nephew. This didn’t stop from baby rumors flying with fans.
On Below Deck season 10, Camille gets in a romance with Australian Ben Willoughby. Like her ex, the Aussie is an athlete, playing rugby, water polo, soccer, and surfing. Despite Camille and Ben getting hot and heavy throughout the season, like all boatmances before it on the show, things didn’t likely last. Both Ben and Camille are living in different parts of the world and look very much single on social media.
