Like every reality show, Under deck features many unique cast members that fans love to watch and follow. However, unlike many other reality TV shows, the franchise’s cast members live together on a charter boat in close quarters for extended periods of time.
As most of us know, living with others can be difficult, sometimes to the point where we no longer want to spend time with them. As a result, there are many Below Deck stars that fans may love but their fellow players don’t.
Chef Rachel Hargrove
As Chef Rachel Hargrove When she debuted on Season 8 of Below Deck, fans immediately fell in love with her witty one-liners and elaborate, delicious dishes. However, even though Rachel’s jokes made her a fan favorite, those same jokes made her fellow cast members dislike her.
For example, Rachel famously berated the entire Below Deck crew and abandoned the boat before a charter, which she later revealed was fueled by her fears of the COVID-19 pandemic. She also told fan-favorite Captain Lee Rosbach to “go fuck himself.” However, she was able to redeem herself in his eyes thanks to her excellent cooking skills. However, after criticizing both Bravo and Paycheck, Rachel left the show and said she had no plans to return. We’ll miss her one-liners!
Ashton Pienaar appeared in seasons 6 and 7 of Below Deck as a deckhand and then a boatswain and is considered one of the best deckhands in the Below Deck series. Because of his friendly demeanor and excellent work ethic, fans loved watching Ashton’s antics on screen. Ashton was also involved in a near-fatal accident where he was thrown overboard the boat. The accident caused fans to like him even more when he survived.
However, both fans and cast members became suspicious of the deckhand when he harassed Chief Stew Kate Chastain and made unwanted sexual advances toward her, particularly because he also exhibited inappropriate behavior toward other women.
Kate Chastain, the Chief Stew of Below Deck from Season 2 to Season 7, impressed fans with her quick wit and leadership skills. However, when it came to her fellow cast members, Kate clearly exhibited “bad girl” behavior. Both the cast and viewers were surprised by the drama Kate caused on board the ship, such as when Kate and Josiah Carter played loud music to harass Caroline Bedol after she left the ship.
Kate also had a habit of gossiping about other Below Deck stars, which, as everyone knows, is not a good way to make friends. However, Kate never seemed to care too much about whether or not she was popular on board the ship.
When Gary King appeared in the second season of Below Deck, he immediately became a fan favorite due to his charming personality. Apparently he also charmed his fellow actors, as he had many romances on the ship, and it turned out that he was a real actor.
For example, Gary was involved in two love triangles in Season 4 and also exhibited strange and jealous behavior towards the women involved. Since then, Gary has admitted that he needs to work on himself and his behavior towards others. We love watching it.
Chef Adam Glick
When Chef Adam Glick first came onto the screen in Seasons 2 and 3 of Below Deck Mediterranean, fans loved him for his adventurous attitude and general “free spirit” nature. Viewers also particularly admired the New Mexico chef’s top-notch cooking skills, even when Adam did questionable things with guests’ food, such as adding onions to a dish even though several guests had specifically requested that their dish not have onions should. I can’t say we love this.
Additionally, Adam has often been at the center of controversy when it comes to his fellow cast members, particularly regarding his romantic relationships with Malia White and then again with Jenna MacGillivray when he appeared on the first season of Below Deck Sailing Yacht. Adam impressed both fans and fellow cast members with his growth after his failed infidelities and now hosts his own cooking show.
