Below Deck S11: Ben And Xandi Flirt, Like Each Other, Upsetting Sunny Clues Show

Lead-Deckhand-turned-Bosun Ben Willoughby‘s cockiness apparently reaches new heights on Below Deck season 11. The self-described stew slayer got himself in a boatmance with a subordinate, Quebecois-Canadian Sunny Marquis, early on in stunning Grenada while working on motor superyacht St. David. However, the “cheeky” Australian player apparently wasn’t satisfied with one romance, and initiated something with Second Stewardess Xandi Olivier, too. Previews for upcoming Below Deck season 11 episodes show Sunny chewing out Ben for touching another girl’s butt and trying to sleep with someone else. Clues show Ben and Xandi get flirty as the charter seasons progresses, causing major drama.

In episode 7, Ben let Sunny know he’d never dated someone in the same department before while working on a yacht. “It’s not bad, or it’s not difficult, you just got to make it work,” Ben told Sunny while they were getting the water toys ready.

“I went to bed with a lead deckhand, woke up to Ben being a bosun. It’s kind of hot. One of my boyfriends was my boss technically, that’s how we met. So I guess I have a little bit of experience in that department already,” Sunny said. “All I have to say is it doesn’t create an imbalance in our relationship.”

Well, it doesn’t look like Ben’s higher rank will be the problem in their boatmance, but Ben’s wandering eyes.

“I can see you guys vibing, but me and Ben vibe, but on a completely different level. Like he’s the person getting me in my bed, checking that I’m okay, in a very brotherly [way],” Xandi said on the girl’s night back on episode 6. However, Ben may have had ulterior motives.

“My situation, oh it’s [bleeped],” Ben says in another preview, after getting in trouble with Sunny.

“If you go and touch another girl’s [bleep] that is just not okay, Ben,” Sunny tells the conceited bosun after he dances with stew Barbie Pascual and holds her hand. However, Barbie’s in a boatmance with Scottish deckhand Kyle Stillie throughout the season, so it’s doubtful anything transpired with Barbie. Especially because Kyle told Bravo Ben was his best mate throughout season 11.

Previews show Xandi getting upset for some unknown reason, crying repeatedly. Chief Steward Fraser Olender comforts her in one scene. In another moment, Fraser is calling out Ben for stirring up drama in his interior department, most likely for initiating a romance with Xandi. The previews also show Xandi getting extremely intoxicated in future crew nights out. Perhaps Xandi ended up allowing something to happen with Ben.

Below Deck production certainly has foreshadowed something happening between Ben and Xandi. He’s already come up from behind — while on charter — and given Xandi, his “favorite” person, a long hug.

“It’s not [bleeping] okay. You can’t [bleep] two girls in the same boat,” Sunny yells at Ben in an upcoming episode.

Although it looks like Ben may try something with Xandi, and Barbie, it wouldn’t be all that surprising if he also pursued Cat Baugh‘s replacement, Australian yachtie and bombshell blonde Paris Field, too.

On Below Deck season 10, Ben got in a hot and heavy boatmance with Camille Lamb. However, after she joined the long list of fired Below Deck crew, Ben ended up starting a boatmance with replacement stew Leigh-Ann Smith.
