Second Stewardess Gabriela Barragan is making a great first impression with fans of Below Deck Sailing Yacht season 3. It is Gabriela’s first time on Parsifal III, but she’s handling her rookie season like a pro.
From having to deal with Third Stew Ashley Marti‘s insubordination to calmly shutting down a charter guest’s sexual harassment and unwanted advances, Gabriela is proving her rank as a five-star yacht server to her boss, Chief Stew Daisy Kelliher.
With her exceptional work ethic, fans want to know more about who Gabriela from Below Deck Sailing Yacht is.
Gabriela’s Age, Birthday, Jobs, Home City & Education
Some Below Deck fans believe Gabriela being a decade older than Ashley is one reason she better at her job. Gabriela’s birthday is on November 3, 1987. That makes her age 34, a Scorpio and turning 35 years-old this year.
Gabriela grew up in San Diego, California. She studied linguistics at San Diego State University from 2005-2007. Now, she is finishing up a degree in Ethnology and Cultural Anthropology at Santa Monica College. Gabriela lived in Brooklyn, New York, for a while and was working as a bartender at an Oyster Bar.
According to Gabriela’s Bravo profile, she’s been working in the yachting industry for over two years as a deckhand and stewardess. On Instagram, Gabriela has her current location as the United States Virgin Islands. However, on Facebook her current city she says she calls home is her home city of San Diego.
Second Stew Gabriela’s Instagram, Facebook, Relationship Status & Hobbies
Although Gabriela’s Instagram hinted she may kiss First Officer Gary King in episode 6 of BDSY season 3, she’s still single according to her Facebook. She also fueled rumors she was dating Below Deck season 9 Deckhand Wes O’Dell when they posted a picture of her sailing on his boat.
On Instagram, Gabriela shares her jet-setting yachtie lifestyle traveling the world. She shares a lot of posts enjoying the ocean and beach life, but also includes a lot of her pictures traveling the world. She’s also supportive of Black Lives Matter and other social justice movements. In her bio she says she is an advocate for diversity in the yachting industry.
Her pictures of her with the other girls from BDSY season 3 suggest she is the closest with Daisy. It makes sense, as Daisy and her are around the same age and relate a lot better to one another. Meanwhile, the younger two girls, Ashley and Deckhand Kelsie Goglia ate at Chef Marcos Spaziani’s restaurant recently and appear to be besties.
Gabriela also likes sports. She’s shared posts of her dancing, wakeboarding, swimming and surfing.
