Fans wanting to watch Below Deck Sailing Yacht season 3‘s new episode 11 on TV tonight are going to have to wait a week. Bravo delayed airing the new episode until next Monday, May 9, at 8 PM EST.
Below Deck seasons typically take a week hiatus midway through a season.
Last week, the preview for episode 11 and the rest of the season promised to deliver more incredible drama. Viewers got a glimpse of the replacement stew for Gabriela Barragan after she abruptly quit the show in episode 10. The new stew Scarlett Bentley looks like she could cause more trouble for First Officer Gary King. Scarlett’s from San Diego, works in marketing for a sailing yacht charter company in the city, and is an aspiring influencer.
The preview for the rest of season 3 also introduced us briefly to the new deckhand, but not by name. However, Ashley Marti partied with the new deckhand in Miami last weekend and introduced him to fans. The new deckhand, Barnaby Birkbeck, is a serial entrepreneur from the UK.
Charter Guest Dr. Nichols Is On Below Deck Sailing Yacht season 3’s New Episode
Fans are also looking forward to the charter guests next week. Dr. Kim Nichols, who insists the crew always call her “Dr. Nichols”, and the other charter guests appear to be rowdy. Apparently one of the male guests will be very rude and demanding, giving flashbacks to earlier this season with Erica Rose and her husband Charles. On top of that, apparently Dr. Nichols has a dress/bra malfunction exposing one of her nipples at dinner.
How Many Episodes Does Below Deck Sailing Yacht Season 3 Have & Is There A Reunion Episode
The two previous seasons of Below Deck Sailing Yacht had 17 and 18 episodes each. Although Bravo hasn’t officially announced how many episodes Below Deck Sailing Yacht season 3 will have, it’s fair to guesstimate it will at least have 17 or 18 episodes like the past two seasons.
Below Deck Sailing Yacht season 3 will most definitely have a reunion episode, and may be the first reunion episode done in studio since the COVID-19 pandemic. Below Deck season 9 had a reunion episode but it was conducted online. The previous two seasons of BDSY had reunion episodes, and season 2 had two episodes released back-to-back for its reunion.
