Below Deck Mediterranean's Bobby Giancola hit it off with Jax Taylor a couple of months ago, but that wasn't his first encounter with the Vanderpump Rules crew. Bobby went to high school in Melbourne, Florida with Ariana Madix.
The SURver sent some love to Bobby during his inaugural visit to the Bravo Clubhouse Tuesday in the form of an absolutely adorable pic of the pair as teens, braces and all.
Yes, Bobby and Ariana have been pals for many years — 17, to be exact, according to this Instagram post from Ariana.
Bobby and Ariana also reminisced about their time in Melbourne during an installment of the SURver's podcast The Bevs.
And the two still do a lot of hanging out together in the present.
He's also friendly with Ariana's man Tom Sandoval.
Now if only we could get these two on a yacht together, that would really be magical.
The Vanderpump Rules squad is no stranger to high seas drama, anyway.
