‘Below Deck Sailing Yacht’ Crew Know the Charter Will Be Tough by What the Guest Is Wearing

Seasoned yachties know when they see trouble coming. The Below Deck crew has dealt with their fair share of challenging charter guests. And the crew of Below Deck Sailing Yacht has their own take on how they know a guest will be trouble.

While chef Adam Glick jokes that trouble means just having guests on board, a number of yachties can tell a guest is going to be significantly more work just by what they are wearing. The crew of Parsifal III dished with Bravo about how they can tell a guest is going to be high maintenance.

Chief stew Jenna MacGillivray shares, “Divas are really hard to manage, douchebags are really hard to manage.” Also, second stew Madison Stalker says she’s concerned when there is too much luggage. “You show up for charter upon arrival, right? You have three bags for three days?” Stalker throws the camera the side-eye. “Honey, you are gonna be a little extra, let’s be real.”

Beware of guests wearing this

Third stew Georgia Grobler says she tries to assess whether or not the guest is going to be difficult by their outfit. “They’ve got really loud clothing, they’re really flaring and really peacocking,” she describes in a digital original. “You think they’re going to be high maintenance. If you’re in pastels or 50 shades of noncolors. You’re going to be a lot easier than like the people wearing fuchsia pink.”

Also, first mate, Paget Berry wants to protect the delicate wood on deck too. So he sees trouble when the stilettos come marching up to the boat. “One of the red flags to me, especially if it’s a group of girls coming onto the boat if they’ve got heels this big, like 12-inch heels, it’s gonna be trouble at some point.” Girlfriend and deckhand Ciara Duggan agrees. “Because that’s a big no no,” she says.

MacGillivray says one indication that someone is going to be a douchebag is if they are wearing chain necklaces. “Lots of gaudy jewelry. They look like they work out a lot, maybe too much,” she observes. She adds that divas are similar wearing heavy jewelry and dressed “excessively.” Essentially, “Showoff material.” Glick is on board with excessive jewelry as being a red flag. “Male or female,” he says. “It’s a pretty good indicator of where we’re headed.”

But this yachtie thinks excessive drinking means troubled waters

While most of the crew think what the guest is wearing means “high maintenance,” deckhand Parker McCown thinks that guests who party to excess indicates trouble. “If your charter guests seem like heavy drinkers, that’s a big red flag that the charter’s going to be a bit more intense,” he remarks.

It appears that red flags are flying high this season. The trailer shows a lot of drinking and guests in some pretty loud frocks. One guest remarks the prime rib Glick serves is bigger than another guest’s trust fund. Also, the champagne is flowing for both the guests and the crew on their day off.

Below Deck Sailing Yacht premiers on Monday, February 3 at 9 p.m. / 8 p.m. central on Bravo.
