Below Deck season 10 charter guests have been pretty well-behaved and generous to the crew thus far on the show. The Below Deck season 10 cast are on track to make more money from charter guests than any previous season if they get similar tips to the first two charters. The crew made a record $222,300 USD in combined tip money after nine charters. In comparison, Below Deck Med season 7’s cast made $185,500 in total tips over nine charters, or on average about $20,600 in total tip money per charter. Here are all the Below Deck season 10 charter guests and the tip money they gave.
Here’s all the primary charter guests from Below Deck season 10 and how much they and their friends/family gave the crew, including the new record $40,000 tip!
Below Deck Season 10 Primary Charter Guest Peng Lim & Friends Gave A $25,000 Tip
The first Primary Charter Guest Peng Lim celebrated his birthday in Saint Lucia alongside friends. The American originally from Thailand got too drunk on the first night and puked at the table, not his finest moment. Peng, from Salt Lake City, Utah, didn’t let one bad moment stop him from having a blast the rest of the charter, however. The owner of The Accounting Factor had his friends, men and women, dressing up in bunny outfits and dancing the night away on the second night.
Peng Lim and other charter guests gave the crew a $25,000 tip, which Captain Lee Rosbach calculated made everyone $2,100 apiece. That means they had two hidden crew members on top of the ten on-camera cast members on Below Deck season 10.
A group of Below Deck charter guests like Peng Lim and friends have to pay $40,000 to stay on the superyacht for three days.
ER Doctor Charter Guests Gave $23,000 In Tip Money To Crew
Primary Charter Guest Dr Pearl Michelle and her fellow ER doctor friends she met while in residency had a blast on superyacht St. David. They thoroughly enjoyed getting drunk and forgetting about the high stress of working in emergency rooms the past two years of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Captain Lee also ate with the ladies, while they enjoyed hitting on the “Stud of the Sea”. It was his last supper before informing the crew he’d be leaving early due nerve pain from spinal surgery. Things got a bit hairy when Dr Hollie Sexton Sandlin pulled Dr Jewel Jones’ wig. But overall, the ladies behaved themselves while getting rip roaring drunk.
@capthlr is a legend. He is charismatic, funny and a consummate professional. He joined us for the most fabulous 5 hour meal prepared by the wonderful Chef Rachel. We were honored to have spent such quality time with him. #BelowDeck @BravoTV pic.twitter.com/Xa2KDirMUT

The ladies had a great time and gave a $23,000 tip. Captain Lee told the crew everyone made $1,769, which translates to the tip being split 13 ways. Either show productions editors did the math wrong on the first tip or another hidden crew member joined for the second charter. Perhaps Captain Lee’s replacement was already onboard for his last charter.
Primary Charter Guest Gigi Fernandez & Partner Jane Geddes Gave A $31,000 Tip
Primary Charter Guest and tennis gold medalist Gigi Fernandez and her partner Jane Geddes had an all-ladies charter on Below Deck season 10. Gigi held a tennis clinic to develop the tennis skill of some of her clients. The charter guests also traveled along the coast of Saint Lucia to see the Pitons and various locations. one of the guests also got stung by a jellyfish.
Gigi and her friends left an extremely generous tip of $31,000 or $2,384 for each crew member.
Primary Charter Guest Karan, Family & Friends Gave A $20,000 Tip
Charter guests Karan, his wife Kamna, sister Payal, Rahul, Vivek and other friends on the trip got dragged by Below Deck fans for being rude to the crew. Primary Charter Guest Kamna, an entrepreneur based in Virginia, and his friends got burned by fans for smoking their cigars backwards. They also repeatedly trashed Chef Rachel Hargrove‘s food, even though she trained to cook Indian food in India.
Although money can’t buy you class or happiness, it did get this group a beautiful trip on a superyacht in the Caribbean. Some crew members and fans predicted a pretty low tip similar to Below Deck Sailing Yacht charter guests Erica Rose and her husband Chuck‘s paltry $6,500 tip. However, this group of nightmare obnoxious charter guests gave an average tip of $20,000, or $1530 per crew member.
Primary Charter Guest Adam Sax & Pregnant Wife Louisa’s Charter
Canadian expat and tech entrepreneur Adam Sax and his pregnant wife Louisa enjoyed a yacht vacation with their closest friends. The wealthy Cayman Islands residents enjoyed their time on Below Deck season 10 when they chartered St. David on episodes nine and ten. They weren’t impressed with how slow service was due to interior being down a stew for most of the trip. Chef Rachel also failed to get out food and snacks for a pregnant Louisa, too. Despite Adam taking the crew to task with the “few hiccups” on service, this group of charter guests still tipped generously.
The crew made $22,000 in tips or each crew member made $1,833.
Divorcee Real Estate Agent Janine & Her Friends Gave A $23,000 Tip
New York real estate agent Janine Acquafredda redid her honeymoon location of Stain Lucia with her closest girlfriends to celebrate her recent divorce. Unfortunately the brunette bombshell and who’s previously starred on HGTV’s House Hunters didn’t get a lot of airtime. The crew fights between the interior crew and Captain Sandy took up most of the oxygen. Although Below Deck season 10 production made it appears as if it was a one-night charter, Janine and her girlfriends tipped as if it were two, suggesting the editors may have cut out a day of their trip. Janine and co. gave the crew $23,000 or $1,769 per person.
Beauty Queen Charter Guests Laura, LaQuisha & Others Gave A Low Tip Of $18,300
Primary Charter Guest Laura Kutryb wasn’t too demanding, but her friend LaQuisha Kesha Martinez Carter was a nightmare for interior. From banging her fists on the table for food, to ordering two turkey club sandwiches as snacks (both of which she didn’t even apparently eat), to demanding gold on her steak, LaQuisha acted like a spoiled brat in Saint Lucia.
Despite the beauty queen’s high demands, this group of charter guests tipped pretty poorly. Laura and the gang only gave $18,300 to the crew, or $1,525 each.
Commercial Real Estate & Primary Jake Clopton’s Group Gave Record-Breaking Below Deck Tip of $40,000
The next group of charter guests and primary Jake Clopton appeared to have deep pockets and strong livers. They enjoyed drinking hard and playing games on the beach in Saint Lucia. Chief Stew Fraser Olender, without evidence, started a rumor the primary was having an affair. Captain Lee, Jake and the crew played a fun prank on charter guest Angel, who passed out on the trampoline platform. They let the line out and one of the deckhands used a jet ski to spray him.
Chef Rachel stepped up her game and the guests were clearly pleased with the food. They gave a gigantic $40,000 tip which was split by the crew.
Bodybuilder Group Also Gave A Great Tip To The Below Deck Season 10 Crew
Bodybuilder and gym owner couple Keith and Jolynn Hoogstad chartered St. David to celebrate their good friend and the most accomplished bodybuilder of all time, Dexter “The Blade” Jackson. Although the crew were initially intimidated by the sheer size of this group of charter guests, they soon realized they were chill and kind people. They were also very generous, giving a $20,000 tip despite only staying one night.
Total Tip Money For Each Below Deck Season 10 Crew Member
The cast members who were there from the start of the charter season made a total of $17,000 in tips each over nine charters. The split a Below Deck record total of $222,300 in tip money. Not a bad haul at all! In comparison, the Below Deck Adventure crew made $11,170 in tips each after seven charters that included seven “adventures”. Fans can check out the Below Deck highest tips of all time from all 10 seasons here too.
Below Deck season 11 already filmed in Grenada, but we’ll have to wait a year to see if any charter guests from that season topped the $40,000 tip from season 10.
