We were promised a lot of hookups in Season 2 of Below Deck Sailing Yacht, and the Parsifal III crew has definitely delivered. One of the buzziest supposed hookups so far has been that between Alli Dore and Dani Soares, who snuck away to the master cabin in the May 3 episode when Jean-Luc Cerza-Lanaux wasn't giving Dani the attention she was hoping for.
Alli addressed the moment during her appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on May 10. "Look, I was just going with the flow," Alli explained in the above clip. "I'm a pretty open person, and I enjoy life experiences. And when Dani took my hand, she's sexy, so why am I not gonna go down to the master cabin with her?"
As for what really happened in the master cabin that night, Alli said, "And yes, we hooked up, so whatever you define as a hookup."
Dani similarly described this moment with Alli as just "two people having fun" during an interview with The Daily Dish last week. "If, you know, we're not hurting anybody and we're enjoying it, why should it be a problem?" she said. "Somebody just commented [on social media], and it's like, 'Oh, Dani has a boyfriend, and she was cheating on him with Alli.' I was like, no, JL was not my boyfriend, and [laughs] we were all single there. So, it was just fun [laughs]."
Just don't make Dani choose whether JL or Alli is the better kisser. "They are very good in their own ways," she gave a very diplomatic response when The Daily Dish posted that very question.
Dani admitted that episode of Below Deck Sailing Yacht was one of the cringiest to watch back this season, especially since she was learning about some events for the very first time. "You know, the funny thing about [that] episode is that I didn't remember a lot of it," she said. "So [I] watched it on TV, and I was like, 'Oh, that's what happened [laughs].'"
With that in mind, Dani joked that she "would probably drink less" if she could do this season of Below Deck Sailing Yacht over again. "But, no, I think everything happens for a reason," Dani concluded. "We learn from our mistakes, and I have no regrets."
See what's coming up for the Alli, Dani, and the rest of the Parsifal III crew, below.
