The latest season of Below Deck promises some wild boatmances, and stewardess Barbara “Barbie” Pascual and her flame, Scottish deckhand Kyle Stillie, are at the heart of the drama. Chief Steward Fraser Olender notes in the trailer the two were going at it like dogs. Her boss also called her out for being a b***h to him, too. So, who’s Barbie from Below Deck season 11?
The latest trailer reveals Barbie grew up in the lap of luxury. “I grew up with three nannies. One would cook, one would clean, and one would do my hair. I’m from Argentina and I’m a huge daddy’s girl, for sure.” Barbie’s rich dad definitely helps foot most of the bill for Barbie’s extravagant way of life.
The beginning of the premiere for Below Deck season 11, Barbie brought her Louis Vuitton and Chanel purses, not afraid to show off her ritzy lifestyle to all the Below Deck season 11 cast.
“People definitely think I’m snobby,” Barbie says at the start of the show. However, Barbie’s wardrobe shows she loves designer clothes and accessories, spending tens of thousands of dollars on outfits.

“I’ve been yachting for six years. I come from a good family, but my dad always taught me to work. ‘And then with your money, you buy all the stupid [bleep] you like,'” the Argentinian beauty explained.
“This bracelet’s tip money. This bracelet’s hard work, OK? You can’t take it away from me. No man gave me this. Not my father. I hustled this,” Barbie said, showing off her Cartier bracelet. She definitely appears to be a handful for Fraser to manage.
Barbie’s dad is Gabriel Pascual, the former Global Account Director for Coca-Cola. He now heads the global corporate and asset protections services firm Fidemont. Barbie’s mom, Sandra, is a sex therapist. The family moved to Boca Raton, Florida back in 2022. She has a younger brother and sister, too.
Barbie’s Instagram shows the brunette is a fur baby mom to her pet dog, Koosh, a French Bulldog, who lives a luxurious lifestyle alongside the reality TV star. Barbie and Koosh often fly on private jets together or ride in sports cars.
Barbie, even before getting into yachting, already went yachting with her rich family. She loves to drive sports cars and motorbikes, too. Barbara also likes to do wakeboarding, horseback riding, and snowboarding in her spare time. The globetrotter has been all over the world and is also a big fan of soccer. She was ecstatic when superstar forward Lionel Messi and the rest of team Argentina won the World Cup in late 2022.
Barbara was born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina, the capital city of her homeland. Barbie speaks fluent Spanish, her mother tongue, as well as English and several other languages. “I went on a three-day trip to Bahamas with Maluma and his father!” Barbie told Bravo. Maluma, for readers who don’t know, is a wildly popular Colombian pop star with tens of millions of fans.
Barbie’s birthday is on September 5, and she turned age 29 after appearing on the show, which means she was born in 1994. Her zodiac sign is Virgo, which explains her wittiness and tense personality. On the show, her best friend was deckhand Marie “Sunny” Marquis, who was dating Kyle’s buddy and Below Deck season 10 Lead Deckhand Ben Willoughby.
Barbara doesn’t follow her romantic connection Kyle on IG, suggesting the boatmance went down in flames. However, she did visit Scotland shortly after filming of Below Deck season 11 ended in Grenada, suggesting a romantic rendezvous before things ended. On the show, Barbie couldn’t stand her love-interest getting completely wasted and then repeatedly getting naked in front of the crew. “All I’m asking you is for you to keep your [bleep] in your pants.”
