Captain Sandy Yawn Gives Her Take on “Rude” Charter Guests

During Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, the captain weighed in on Below Deck’s latest group of charter guests.

When it comes to difficult Below Deck charter guests, perhaps Andy Cohen put it best during Watch What Happens Live on January 9: “It’s almost redundant at this point when you’re summarizing Below Deck to say, ‘Oh my god, the charter guests were so rude,’ but tonight’s guests were super rude.”

How to Watch

Andy’s comment was preceded by an all-new episode of Below Deck, during which the guests complained about rocks on the beach, spat out food from one of chef Rachel Hargrove’s meals, and more. Captain Sandy Yawn was aboard as she’s temporarily filling in for an injured Captain Lee Rosbach, and when Andy asked for her take on the charter guests on WWHL, she admitted, “Yeah, they’re rude.”

He followed up by asking how the crew is supposed to react in those situations — adding that he “wanted them to talk back a little bit” this time around — to which Sandy responded, “I wish they would come to me and say, ‘They’re being really rude.’ I’d address it.”

She might, for example, go to the primary guest and say, “You gotta reel it in a little bit.”

What exactly motivates a guest to be rude in the first place? According to Captain Sandy, it’s not just because they want “to make an impact on the show” or “because they’re a--holes” (as Andy put it), but “a bit of both.”
