Chef Natasha De Bourg "Didn't Realize" This About Herself Until She Watched Below Deck Sailing Yacht
The Parsifal III chef and stews Dani Soares and Alli Dore dish on filming their first season of the show.
Below Deck Sailing Yacht's Natasha De Bourg is an incredibly accomplished chef, having attended culinary school in Europe before working at top Michelin star restaurants. However, nothing can prepare you for seeing yourself on TV for the first time.
The Below Deck Sailing Yacht chef dished on what it was like seeing herself on the show for the first time in the Season 2 premiere while teaching a virtual cooking class for social influencers hosted by Bravo on March 2. "I realized how sassy I am," Natasha said of watching herself on TV. "I know I'm sassy, but like, I didn't realize I'm this sassy."
Natasha's fellow Parsifal III crew members Dani Soares and Alli Dore also made a surprise appearance during the event and shared their reaction to seeing themselves in the Below Deck Sailing Yacht Season 2 premiere, with third stew Alli joking, "I just realized what a nerd I am."
"It was pretty exciting. It was pretty weird seeing myself on TV, to be honest," second stew Dani said. "I just realized watching the episode how strong my accent was. I knew I had an accent, but I didn't know how strong it was [laughs]."
Dani had more to say about her accent in the Below Deck Sailing Yacht Season 2 premiere. "My accent is often a mystery to people. I'm Brazilian, but after dating an Irish guy and dating an Australian guy, it's all over the place," she said during the episode, before adding, "I swear, I might have an American accent by the end of this."
Even though Dani has worked in yachting for about eight years, she said that Below Deck Sailing Yacht was "100 percent" the "craziest experience" she has had in the industry. "I think just having the cameras on you all the time was just a crazy experience," she said. "But you forget about it really quick."
Dani noted that she felt fortunate to be able to go through the charter season with her fellow Season 2 crew members. "We were so lucky, to be honest. The interior team and the whole crew, we connected so well," Dani said. "Even though Alli was green on the interior, she was so smart, she was so switched on. Honestly, my team was perfect. We could definitely work together again."
Alli also said of this season's interior team, which also included chief stew Daisy Kelliher, "Yeah, we were really happy."
The third stew noted how the experience has not only connected the Below Deck Sailing Yacht Season 2 crew but also yachties from other Below Deck seasons and franchises. "I guess you can understand each other," Alli said. "You can understand each other's experience on a different level, so that instantly bonds you."
