One of the Below Deck Charter Guests Should Look Very Familiar to Bravo Fans

Madison Simon, who has appeared on Southern Charm, climbed aboard the Valor in Season 7.

You never know who you're going to see climb aboard the Below Deck yacht. Why, Bravolebs of all kinds have taken part in a high seas adventure, including past, present, and future Housewives. But even so, we still weren't expecting to see a bit of Charleston in Thailand this season of Below Deck.

How to Watch

Watch Below Deck on Peacock and the Bravo App.

A group of Charlestonians chartered the Valor during the December 30 episode, and before you even ask, yes, they did have a major connection to Southern Charm. Kathryn Dennis' friend, Madison Simon, who is the director of marketing, a women's wear buyer, and a stylist for the Mount Pleasant, South Carolina department store Gwynn's, boarded the yacht, along with several of her fellow Charleston-based pals.

Madison actually caused a bit of a splash during her time aboard the Valor. Her preference sheet stated that she does not eat cheese, but when Chef Kevin Dobson served the guests pizza, she had to make a request to get some without the cheesy stuff. Kevin will tell you just how he felt about that during the Below Deck Season 7 After Show, above.

But Madison poked a little fun at her Below Deck appearance in her Instagram Story. "Hi, Miss Simon. How do you like your pizza?" her friend asked her in a video, to which Madison replied, "No cheese."

Following this charter season, Captain Lee Rosbach would go on to make a little Below Deck-Southern Charm crossover of his own when he caught up with the Charmers on land in Charleston in June. However, Patricia Altschul has long said she wants to charter the Below Deck yacht one day, and we are still holding out hope for that to happen.

It looks like Ashton Pienaar is going to get a little friendly with the charter guests in an all-new episode of Below Deck on Monday, January 6 at 9/8c. Watch a preview below, and catch up on the season through the Bravo app
