Below Deck season 11‘s one episode 7 preview shows charter guests enjoying some of Chef Anthony Iracane‘s best food dishes from the show. Primary Charter Guest Lesley Gaudiosi comments on how much she loves the French culinary wizard. “Oh my god, I love him. His eyebrows are very nice,” she commented at the first lunch on superyacht St. David. Lesley, her husband James, and friends also enjoyed a murder mystery night where they mistakenly called pretend murdered Chief Steward Fraser Olender “Fletcher”. So, who’s Lesley Gaudiosi, her husband and their friends, charter guests on Below Deck season 11?

The Below Deck season 11 cast were down a crew member (at least one, as stewardess Cat Baugh may also be fired or quit) on Lesley’s charter after Jared’s firing. So things appear to be frantic on the fourth charter. The crew certainly could’ve used a break after the rowdiness of drunken charter guests Tina Smothers and Eileen Perry. Fraser certainly feels fed up with these latest charter guests when he says “It’s [bleeping] Fraser” after the got his name wrong. Besides Lesley and her husband James, the two were joined by married couples Kristi and Brian Hardy, Kim and Dave Ramos, and Michael Theisen and Jessica Dowd.
