Bravo fans get ready to explore the Caribbean islands of Grenada, because Below Deck officially returned for Season 11 on February 5.

How to Watch

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

Now that Season 11 has premiered, viewers can witness the St. David crew hit the high seas as they provide exceptional service to their charter guests. The season marks a new era as well, as Captain Kerry Titheradge, whom we first met on Below Deck Adventure, is in charge of the bridge.

Captain Kerry is joined by returning chief stew, Fraser Olender, and deckhand, Ben Willoughby. Crew members Chef Anthony Iracane, Bosun Jared Woodin, deckhands Marie “Sunny” Marquis and Kyle Stillie, and stews Cat BaughXandi Olivier, and Barbara "Barbie" Pascual are all new to the show.

Barbie has already made a splash on Season 11, as she brought her own sheets to the boat, and she has been open about her charmed upbringing. 

In a preview for Season 11, Episode 3, which you can check out at the top of this post, Barbie opens up about growing up with three nannies.

Who is Barbara "Barbie" Pascual from Below Deck Season 11?

The stew hails from Argentina and is a self-proclaimed “daddy’s girl.” On the Season 11 trailer, Barbie opens up about her life during a confessional interview. “My eyebrows are tattooed. My eyelashes are fake as hell, and so are my extensions. But I’m real as f-ck,” she explained.

As for Barbie’s professional career, she’s been in the yachting industry for six years, but she also owns a decor company, Beyond the Table By Barbie. According to the company's Instagram, the yachtie launched her side gig in June 2023. Barbie’s company allows her to decorate elegant settings for “yachts, parties, events, dinners, [and] more!”

In the preview clip above, Barbie talks about how she had three nannies when she was growing up. 

"I lived in Uruguay, Argentina, Mexico, China..." she tells Bosun Jared and chief stew Fraser during the crew's first dinner out. "I grew up with three nannies all the time. One would cook, one would clean, and one would do my hair."
