The Daily Dish Below Deck Mediterranean

Ariana Madix and Bobby Giancola Were All of Us in High School

How cute do the #PumpRules and #BelowDeckMed friends look in this throwback pic?

By Laura Rosenfeld

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. 

How to Watch

Watch Below Deck Mediterranean on Mondays at 9/8c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo app

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.

What you know about Melbourne, FL tho? @bgcola28 #fam #belowdeckmed

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.
