Admit it, whenever a male and female crew member are assigned as roommates on Below Deck, your eyebrows raise like a reflex just thinking of what may happen during the season. This season, we have three co-ed roomies: Kate Chastain and Josiah Carter, Adrian Martin and Laura Betancourt, and Rhylee Gerber and Tyler Rowland, and we've definitely seen them share some fun, dramatic, and even sexy times in those bunks.
But is co-ed bunking on Below Deck really as exciting as it seems? Well, there are "lots of pros" for Tyler, as he shared in the Below Deck Season 6 After Show, which you can check out, above. Maybe he feels that way because there's been "lots of nakedness," according to the deckhand. Yes, we know, Tyler.
Adrian is also a fan of co-ed bunking. "I prefer rooming with women. Usually they're cleaner and more respectful of the space and stuff like that," he said in the After Show. "[Laura] was definitely cleaner than Chandler [Brooks]. And everything smells good. It was a good vibe. So, no, it was nice."
But if you ask Laura, she thinks men should room with men, and women should room with women. "I see no pros to co-ed bunking on yachts. I think, as a female, no, no pros at all," she explained in the After Show. "I think that it's such close quarters, unless you are dating or really good friends, it's not nice. It's annoying."
As you can probably tell, Laura didn't always have the best time rooming with Adrian. In fact, there was one thing about sharing a cabin with the chef that particularly "rattled" her because it seemed as though he was just trying "to kind of like stir the pot." We'll just let Laura explain, above.
Even though the charter guests have fabulous rooms aboard M/Y Seanna, it can sometimes be a challenge getting them there. Check out the preview of Tuesday night's all-new episode of Below Deck at 9/8c to see what we mean.
