Self-proclaimed witch and vampire Xandi Olivier made quite the first impression on Bravo viewers looking at the first trailers of Below Deck season 11. The stewardess gets mad at Chief Steward Fraser Olender for messing up her “aura” by touching her crystals. She also matter-of-factly says, “I am a witch and a vampire… I do not like human contact.” The stunning brunette stewardess may have been somewhat joking, but she does appear to have a strong spiritual side. So, who’s Xandi from Below Deck season 11?
It may be hard for viewers at first to know who’s who on the show. Stewardess Xandi was one of three gorgeous brunettes on board superyacht St. David during the charter season in Grenada filming in early 2023. Fans may mix her up at first with deckhand Marie “Sunny” Marquis and stewardess Barbara “Barbie” Pascual. Fans may have Deja vu from Below Deck season 7, when doppelgangers Natalya Scudder and Natasha Webb confused fans and charter guests alike, who thought they were twins.
Who’s Xandi From Below Deck Season 11: Instagram, Family, Hometown, Age, Birthday, Yachting Experience, More
Xandi originally hails from Lynnwood, Gauteng, South Africa, a beautiful suburb of Pretoria. She’s very close with her brother and mom, and she’s also a proud aunt to her two-year-old nephew Michael.
After graduating from the University of Pretoria with a Bachelor of Commerce, she moved to Miami, Florida. She’d previously visited and watched a Miami Heat game.
It appears Xandi’s lived in different parts of Florida since, including West Palm Beach Florida and Fort Lauderdale. According to Xandi’s Instagram, she has a serious case of wanderlust. She loves to travel all over the world, and working in the yachting industry over the past six years has provided her the opportunity to travel to St. Maarten and Saint Thomas, U.S. and Virgin Islands in the Caribbean. She’s also traveled in the islands of Mauritius in Africa.
Xandi celebrates her birthday on November 7, and was age 28 while on Below Deck season 11 as she was born in 1994. Xandi is now 29. Her birthday makes Xandi a Scorpio, which explains her conviction in her odd beliefs, as well as her ambitious side.
Outside yachting, Xandi’s TikTok and IG show she’s big into body building, too.
She’s also a huge fan of the reality TV network she’s now starring on. “Bravo practically raised me,” she told Bravo.
“I have a lot of love for so many of them. I probably clicked most with Fraser and Paris,” Xandi told Bravo about her favorite co-stars. Bravo half-leaked the news stewardess Paris Field joins the crew as a replacement. (Read more about Below Deck season 11 spoilers here.)
She’s also a huge fan of traveling America. “I fell in love with Charleston, but not boat-related. I love Nashville, I live for country music.”
Xandi’s Claims She’s A Witch, Vampire & She-Wolf
Fans don’t yet know how serious Xandi’s claims about being a witch and vampire are because previews only took a clip of something she said. However, she definitely looks like the biggest, wildest partier of all the Below Deck season 11 cast because the latest trailer shows her getting completely wasted repeatedly.
“I only come to life at night,” Xandi says in the preview. “I just wish that I could remember it.” There’s then clips of chugging liquor straight and falling into the superyacht’s hot tub. Hopefully she doesn’t face the wrath of stern Captain Kerry Titheradge for being too hungover on the job.
“I try and find stand up comedy clubs or live music. If I could, I would be a professional groupie,” Xandi said to Bravo. She’s also a huge fan of Jonas Brothers.
The previews also show Xandi oddly ringing a bell over her crystals. On the premiere, Xandi explained that her crystals help her with her crippling anxiety she’s always had.
“I suffer from real bad anxiety. I always have, I get nervous. And I have tried everything. I’ve been to every therapist and doctor. I have even considered shock therapy. And crystals and sage seem to be doing the trick. This is clear quartz and it’s known to be a healer. Aventurine green, this is for luck and for prosperity. So maybe we can all touch it to increase the little tips.”
Besides claiming she’s a witch and a vampire who only comes alive at night, she also has in her IG bio she’s Asena, a mythological she-wolf. She also includes the caption: “The Wolf you feed is the Wolf that wins.” Fans are eager to find out more about her eccentric belief system.
