Here’s the Below Deck “Dream Crew” Chosen by Winter Olympics Athletes
Ahead of the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics, these pro athletes put on their figurative Below Deck captain's hat.
From working the interiors of mega yachts to docking 180-foot vessels, we've seen the Below Deck yachties do a boatload of strenuous work to give charter guests an amazing luxury getaway. It can be an intense undertaking, often requiring plenty of training and huge amounts of determination.
We asked several top U.S. athletes ahead of the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics , which start on February 3 on NBC and Peacock, which of their fellow pro athletes do they think have what it takes to land a coveted spot among their "dream crew" if they were a Below Deck captain?
"I'll choose Kaillie Humphries," said Olympian hurdler-turned-bobsledder, Lolo Jones, adding of the Olympic champion bobsledder, "I know she works hard. She's used to long hours."
So who would Kaillie want to have aboard? "I'd for sure have Lolo Jones on my crew, she's super hardworking," she said of her fellow bobsledder, to which Lolo added, "Until I start making those drinks wrong."
Kaillie also added she'd want "as many athletes as [she] could" to be part of her crew, including Olympic gold medalists, Chloe Kim, Mikaela Shiffrin, Lindsay Vonn, and Shaun White.
As for U.S. snowboarder, Red Gerard, there's no doubt that fellow pro snowboarder Chris Corning would be a deckhand on his crew, "as maybe like the maintenance guy, or something like the engine room guy." Red also added that he'd bring aboard a slew of his best friends, including pro snowboarders Judd Henkes, Luke Winklemann, Hailey Langland, and Maddie Mastro.
Brita Sigourney, Olympic freestyle skier, said she'd bring aboard champion freeskier David Wise: "[David] wouldn't take any crap from anyone, so he'd be a good person to have on, on bosun." Olympic freeskier Devon Logan would also be on her crew as a bosun because, as Brita added, "She can do anything."
