Below Deck Sailing Yacht season 3 First Officer Gary King is a favorite among the ladies aboard superyacht Parsifal III and viewers alike. The true king of boatmances and serial flirting out of all Below Deck series, Gary charmed the pants off (often literally) of many of his female cast mates. But what happened to Gary after Below Deck Sailing Yacht season 3 ended? Find out where him and Chief Stewardess Daisy Kelliher stand now, and if he’ll return for Below Deck Sailing Yacht season 4.
Gary King’s Player Reputation On Below Deck Sailing Yacht
But first, a brief recap of Gary’s exploits from the previous two seasons. In Below Deck Sailing Yacht season 2, Gary slept with his underling deckhand Sydney Zaruba the first night of drinking. He ended up having buyer’s remorse the next day, and spent the rest of the season trying to get an heavily infatuated Sydney to realize it was a one-night stand. Meanwhile, the sexual tension between Gary and Daisy, a love-hate relationship, was palpable throughout season 2. Gary ended up pursuing Third Stewardess Alli Dore with the two ending up in a boatmance relationship that ended shortly after the show wrapped up filming.
In season 3, Gary tried to slowdown and not hook up with a female co-worker right out of the gate. Third Stewardess Ashley Marti made that awfully difficult when she threw herself at him. They ended up making out, and momentarily hooked up when Ashley took advantage of a blackout drunk Gary. Throughout season 3 Gary and Daisy flirted a bunch with each other. They even ended up making out passionately in the hot tub one drunken night. But Gary, known to play the field, also started casually fooling around with Second Stewardess Gabriela Barragan. Once she quit, the hound dog Gary pursued her replacement, Scarlett Bentley. She eventually rebuffed Gary’s advances once she discovered how he was systematically fooling around with all the female crew, except for Kelsie Goglia.
Gary King Returns For Below Deck Sailing Yacht Season 4
Gary returning for Below Deck Sailing Yacht season 4 never really was in doubt. Captain Glenn Shephard loves his first officer’s hard work ethic and high-level sailing skills. On top of that, show producers can’t exactly drop the star who stirs up all the boatmance drama, especially when he somehow still remains lovable to the ladies he leads on and the viewership.
Captain Glenn posted a picture of Gary and him sailing on Parsifal III with a new crew member in the middle of July 2022. Filming for the show happened in June and July of 2022, so that the timing makes sense. Further confirming he participated in the latest season, Gary also posted a picture of him with a new deck crew member tagging their location as Maddalena Archipelago, which is a group of islands between Sardinia and Corsica. Below Deck Sailing Yacht season 4 takes place in part at the Portisco Marina in Sardinia, Italy.
Gary also posted a couple more pictures of him hanging out with Captain Glenn, including the two golfing. So, Gary spent last June and July filming Below Deck Sailing Yacht season 4, but what else happened to him after BDSY season 3, including his rumored relationship with Daisy?
BDSY Co-stars Gary & Daisy Aren’t Dating But Are Close Friends
Gary and Daisy sparked dating rumors when they posted the two of them hanging out together at Disneyland after Below Deck Sailing Yacht season 3 finished filming.
Gary pulled the legs of fans by declaring Gaisy a real romantic relationship on an IG video. “Hey guys, because many of you are asking … yes, Daisy and I are dating.”
Daisy shot down fans’ shipping of the couple though shortly after.
“No, we’re just friends. I got a kick out of people jumping to conclusions when we posted a photo of us together at Disneyland. So our phones were like blowing up. So he did the joke story of, ‘Yeah, we’re dating,’” Daisy told a reporter at Us Weekly.
The pair sparked dating rumors again when Gary was staying at Daisy’s apartment in London at the time they recorded the Below Deck Sailing Yacht season 3 reunion episode. However, it appears they may have met up because they were headed back to sailing yacht Parsifal III to film season 4. Yes, that’s right, Daisy will also be on the next BDSY season, so maybe this time they will end up dating and hooking up. Third times a charm, and Daisy has the luck of the Irish.
What Else Happened to Gary After Below Deck Sailing Yacht Season 3
Gary returned home to South Africa to spend time with friends and family after filming BDSY season 3. Gary’s close to his mom, who he sometimes has talked to on the phone on the show. One day he shared a video of him buying a power washer and going to his mom’s home to clean the back patio. Gary, an uncle now, also likes to spend time with his niece whenever he gets a chance. He’s also been spending time practicing golf game, although he claims he isn’t very good at it.
He also continues to travel the world, including catching Premier League soccer games in London when visiting friends there.
Gary also visited Below Deck Sailing Yacht season 3 co-star Chef Marcos Spaziani at his LA restaurant in early 2022.
