"Work hard, play hard"—a most appropriate motto for the controversial Chief Stewardess of

Season 1 of Bravo TV's popular reality series Below Deck. Adrienne Gang worked hard to get where she is today. Many Below Deck viewers may find it hard to believe that Adrienne is more chef than stew.

When Bravo was casting Below Deck, she was gunning for the position of Chef aboard Megayacht HONOR. But that was not to be...and Adrienne's place in Below Deckhistory was sealed, setting the standard for all future Chief Stews on the hit television show. For regular viewers of the show, it comes as no surprise that Adrienne's astrological sign is Virgo, an unabashed perfectionist, at work and at play.

When the cameras stopped rolling, Adrienne continued her successful career path as a chef, including an adventurous stint at Burning Man. She is a regular aboard luxury yachts, producing gourmet cuisine for elite guests at sea and working her culinary magic for luxury catering firms on land. When not coming up with new recipes, Adrienne cohosts (with Jennifer Bennington) Gangplank Report, a podcast detailing and discussing Below Deckepisodes.
