Below Deck Down Under may be new to screens across the globe, but it doesn’t mean that its stars are strangers to being in front of the camera, too.

While fans of the yuge Below Deck franchise will be familiar with Aesha Scott from the Mediterranean spin-off, we spotted a familiar face from the deep, dark crevice of our childhood.

Yup, brand new Below Deck Down Under deckhand Benny Crawley used to be a host on ABC’s children’s network, ABC3!
