Daisy Kelliher Doubles Down on Calling Out Gary King at That Tense Tip Meeting
The Below Deck Sailing Yacht chief stew reveals what really inspired her comments about the first mate.
Coming off of a nine-person charter that required a lot in terms of service, Daisy Kelliher reminded the rest of the Parsifal III crew during the tip meeting that there are times when the stews need help in the interior. "Without the support of the rest of the team, we physically cannot do what we do," Daisy told the crew (clip above). "I spoke to Gary [King] and kind of explained if he can see something's not going quite right, instead of me being chief bitch as per usual, jumping in there and going, 'OK, these glasses need to be put away.'"
First mate Gary was visibly annoyed and said under his breath, "F--k, we don't get any help out on deck."
"I'm not having a go," Daisy assured the group. "But I'm just saying when we started receiving that support, it changes the whole experience."
Gary still wasn't too happy with Daisy's feedback during an interview in the episode. "If it's not Daisy's way, it's the highway, which is bulls--t. We're busy out on deck working all day. None of us get breaks. I work an 18-hour, 19-hour shift," he said. "I didn't join this industry to be a stewardess. I f--king hate doing dishes."
Daisy provided more insight into what led up to her comments at that tip meeting during an Instagram Live with deckhand Sydney Zaruba on April 6. "We were completely not with it. I know for the interior, I was massively thrown off," Daisy said of her performance during that charter. "There was a lot of drink orders, for our department anyway, a lot of it was like crystal glasses. When the whole tip meeting happened, what people don't see is that we were going through so many glasses. So I'm like, 'I need help with glasses. I'm gonna pass out. Like, we don't have enough glasses.'"
The chief stew agreed with Sydney that "that was 100 percent our worst charter." "But I think we just got way stronger after that," she said.
Still, Daisy defended her actions at the tip meeting in a post in her Instagram Story. "During my nine years in yachting I have done washed downs, lines and fenders, driven tenders, cooked for guests, cooked for crew, ordered parts for engineers, done menu planning with chefs, itinerary planning with captains," she wrote. "These are a few examples of actions I have taken which are NOT part of my job description, but what is part of my job description is being a TEAM PLAYER."
Third stew Alli Dore backed up Daisy's statement. "Amen to that [Daisy]. As a deckhand that moved to the interior I feel I can have understanding on both sides," Alli replied to Daisy's Instagram Story. "This and I 10000% back Daisy on this statement. We are a team it is never a matter of departments vs. departments."
