The Below Deck Sailing Yacht Crew Reveals the Biggest Charter Guest Red Flags

It's only the second charter of the season for the Below Deck Sailing Yacht crew, and the Parsifal III squad is already catering to some high-profile clientele.

Did the primary charter guest in the February 17 episode of Below Deck Sailing Yacht, Whitney Thompson Forrester, look familiar to you at all? Well, she should have because she is no stranger to reality TV. 

Fans will remember Whitney from Cycle 10 of America's Next Top Model. She would go on to be crowned the Top Model of that season, becoming the series' first plus-size winner.

Whitney's friend even made a nod to her ANTM past on Below Deck Sailing Yacht, calling her "America's Next Top Siren" as she modeled her toga during the charter guests' toga party in the episode.

This group of charter guests definitely hasn't made things easy for the Parsifal III crew so far. Not only did they come in with "high expectations for the level of service onboard," as Captain Glenn Shephard said during the preference sheet meeting, but Whitney is also one of two vegans on this charter, which has posed a bit of a culinary challenge for Chef Adam Glick.

"We did not make the crew’s life easy," Whitney said of the charter on Instagram on February 16. "Chef Adam is already complaining about me being vegan."

Whitney's charter continues in the next episode of Below Deck Sailing Yacht on Monday, February 24 at 9/8c. Check out a sneak peek, below.
