Below Deck season 11‘s maiden voyage on superyacht St. David shocked fans when the newlywed Co-Primary Charter Guests Brian and Rebecca Bailey had some hanky-panky in the hot tub jacuzzi. According to Below Deck‘s OG Captain Lee Rosbach, Below Deck season 1 charter guests also hooked up in a jacuzzi. However, the producers back then didn’t include it on the show. This time around, fans dragged hot tub charter guests Brian and Rebecca for fooling around in the hot tub.
“We’ve got some newlyweds. And this is their boat for the next few days. They can get as dirty and foul-mouthed as they like,” Chief Steward Fraser Olender said at the start of the charter. “And thank god I’m not on housekeeping.”
“I’m getting a lot of sexual energy off these guests. And I feel like I can give them a good time,” Fraser added. “Not as good a time as they’re going to be giving each other. But a good time.”
In episode 2, “Pier Pressure”, the sneak peek shows the two going at it after their friends left them alone in the hot tub. Stewardess Barbie Pascual suspected something was up when the primaries told her to leave them alone for the rest of the night. She then told deckhand and her soon-to-be boatmance crush deckhand Kyle Stillie how she thought the charter guests were hooking up.
Below Deck Fans Bash Hot Tub Charter Guests Brian & Rebecca
The hot tub hookup shocked fans of the show.
“Yeah, these charter guests are pretty gross. They’re like teens obsessing about body parts. Except they look to be in the 40s-50s. Embarrassing,” said one fan on Reddit.
“These guests are so cringe… omg,” said another.
Likely preparing for the onslaught of judgmental viewers, oil and gas finance executive Rebecca posted on her Instagram a quote from Coco Chanel, “I don’t care what you think about me. I don’t think about you at all.”
She also previously posted, well before going on the show, the quote, “If you can’t be kind, be quiet.”
At least deckhand Kyle didn’t judge. “Would you not be [hooking up in the hot tub] if you were on a yacht?” he asked Barbie.
The two yachties Barbie and Kyle ended up hooking up with as much reckless abandon that Fraser commented they were going at it like dogs.
