Below Deck: Meet Charter Guests Tara, Steven & Friends On Season 11

Superyacht St. David on Below Deck season 11 is hosting some wild charter guests right out of the gate. Episodes one and two introduced us to a wild middle-aged newlywed couple who got it on in the hot tub. On episode three, “Breaking Barbie,” married Co-Primary Charter Guests Steven Damen and Tara Damen brought along their friends on a charter in stunning Grenada. Previews show the crew struggling deliver the demands of this group of charter guests. So, who are charter guests Tara, Steven and friends Robert Piner, Michelle Thompson, Brandon Kojis and Rachel Kojis on Below Deck season 11?

“Pretty sure I’m going to need some Dramamine at some point,” Steven says early on during their charter. It looks like he may have some seasickness while on the show.

Well, let’s hope Steven stayed awake when he and his wife redid their wedding vows while friends Robert and Michelle got married by a waterfall.

One things for sure, Stewardess Barbie Pascual drives Chief Steward Fraser Olender and the charter guests nuts when she spends 30 minutes trying to make the ideal margarita.

“I’m still waiting on my magical Barbie margaritas,” one of the ladies tells a clearly miffed Fraser. He’d already told Barbie to forget about squeezing fresh orange juice to add to the drink.

“What is that? Is it a diary? Make the [bleeping] drink, take the orange juice and put it away and let’s go,” Fraser

“I’m about five minutes away from losing control,” Barbie vents. Clues suggest Barbie may end up getting fired on Below Deck season 11 due to her insubordination.

The couple, along with their best friends, traveled to Grenada back on Feb. 10, 2023. They visited the Mount Cinnamon Grenada beach resort while there for a few days for their charter. Valentine’s last year was their last day on the superyacht filming.

Steven’s wife Tara keeps a much lower profile on her Instagram. She last posted back in 2023.

Good friend and fellow charter guest Robert Piner’s Instagram shows he’s a family man. He proposed to Michelle back in 2021. Michelle’s Instagram reveals she was pregnant with their child and was expecting at the end of February 2024. However, their daughter was born early on Jan. 29. In the Below Deck season 11 trailer, Robert was the one to complain about Chef Anthony Iracane‘s usually superb food. “I’ve had some filets in my life, and that’s some chewy ass [bleep],” Robert said about Chef Anthony’s steak he cooked. Clues suggest Chef Anthony may get fired on Below Deck season 11, too.

Meanwhile, Steven and Tara’s other best friends, married couple Brandon and Rachel Kojis both have their Instagram accounts set to private.
