After the first charter on Season 2 wrapped up, Aesha Facetimed her beau to share her excitement about their nearly-$1,600 tip. She revealed that the four-figure sum could go towards buying a house. 

"Oh, I never got to get my money to show you," she told Scotty on the phone as they chatted while she was spending time outside on the boat's deck. "We got 1,590 U.S. [dollars] each, so there's some house deposit!"

As she confirmed in an interview on the episode, Aesha and Scotty are looking to switch up their current living arrangement. When Aesha isn't working on a yacht, she's living with her beau in a converted ambulance in the United States.

"Scott and I have been together for over two years now, and we're planning to buy a house in New Zealand," she said. "Because living in the converted ambulance has been lovely, but we would really like to poop in real toilets instead of in buckets. The next step in our relationship is flushing."
