A Controversial Guest Returned to Below Deck and Brought *Lots* of "Drama"

"I live for guest drama but not this guest drama," Below Deck stew Barbara Pascual exclaimed about the issues on the boat. 

By Cynthia Robinson

A familiar face popped up during Season 11, Episode 11 of Below Deck on April 15. Who? None other than a former charter guest named Brandon.

Who is Below Deck charter guest Brandon?

Brandon previously appeared on Below Deck Down Under Season 2. While aboard the Northern Sun vessel, he forwent the yacht's rules by jumping in the ocean at night with another guest, Kristyl. The boat blunder caused drama with Captain Jason Chambers, who issued a stern warning to the guests to not go against his order or they would go "back to the marina." 

How to Watch

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

Fast forward to Season 11 of Below Deck when Brandon arrived with a new group of charter guests, and unfortunately for the St. David crew, he made waves yet again.

The drama with Brandon on Below Deck Season 11, explained

Brandon made a memorable arrival as stew Barbara "Barbie" Pascual offered him Prosecco and sparkling rosé, and he promptly replied, "All the above!"

Then, during dinner, Brandon started to rock the boat when he confronted another guest.

Brandon, more specifically, addressed Ray, the boyfriend of primary guest Carmen, to point out the "tension" he felt when coming on the boat due to a past experience between the two.

A heated conversation ensued, prompting Barbie to weigh in during a confessional interview. "I live for guest drama but not this guest drama," she said. "This guest drama's dark." 

New stew Paris Field had a lighter take on the events at dinner, saying in an interview, "The's comedy gold."

Back at the dinner table, another guest offered his thoughts on the matter: "Seems like this got more out of pocket than it needed to be."

Carmen, for her part, tried to bring peace, explaining, "Listen, the only way we can change is if we inform and educate." 

Ultimately, things cooled down and the two men did make peace when Brandon returned to the table. "I want you to know I love you and I adore you," Brandon said to Ray. 

"I know, and I understand where you're coming from," Ray responded. 

We love a resolution!
