Meeting a new group of people can be daunting, but it appears that the crew of Below Deck Sailing Yacht Season 2 wasted no time in getting to know each other very well. On the March 20 episode of The Daily Dish podcast, Daisy Kelliher explained the special circumstances that made the Parsifal III a particularly hookup-heavy boat. 

When asked if “this is the most crew hookup interaction” she has seen in her career as a yachtie, the chief stew explained that her experience with the Below Deck Sailing Yacht group was different than what she’s ever been a part of in the past.

“On the boats I work on, they’re more permanent than these boats, and they’re more longevity and people stay around for a few years, so that sort of level of hooking up definitely hasn’t existed so much in the boats I work on and what I’ve seen because it doesn’t work. People do end up getting let go, or they end up having to quit, and the boats I work on are looking for people to stay on for a few years,” she said. “Saying that, I do know on other boats it does happen, I do know other boats are quite loose. I think with Below Deck and our season, it was easy to be loose because we all knew that we were only there for six weeks. If I was to go onto another boat and I knew I was only there for six weeks, I’d probably hook up with them, too. But if I want to stay there for a year or two and I really like the captain and I like the owner and my crew, I’m not going to go there as quickly because I’m probably going to have to end up leaving. So it’s a bit of a tricky one.” 

“It was a lot. I was like, ‘Whoa,’ and Sydney [Zaruba]’s like, ‘I really like [Gary King],’ and I’m like, ‘You’ve known him for two days.’ I’m like, ‘Wow it takes me like two years for me to say I like someone,’ so for me personally, it was a lot. But, whatever. Everyone’s different,” she said. “For me it was kind of entertaining.”
