After Taking Care of the Women on RHUGT, Where Is Pepsi Now?

Pepsi is now spreading his happiness to those around him as he travels the world in style.

Start your engines! At least, that’s what the happy-go-lucky resort employee demanded after drinking some controversial tequila on The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip Season 3 in Thailand. It also might be what he has to say when serving the stuff aboard a luxury cruise.

Who Is Pepsi?

How to Watch

Stream The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

A new fan favorite from the Bravo franchise, Villa Aye’s lead concierge, Pepsi — whose real name is Thepsiti Thapthimthong — is somewhat of a mystery. We do know that the Thailand-born 51-year-old hospitality worker was born November 24, meaning he’s a Sagittarius, which fits perfectly with his loyalty and compassion toward the ‘Wives.

That’s precisely why we love him so.

Where Is Pepsi Now?

Pepsi has maintained a career in the hospitality industry for years, including after filming the Peacock series, in Phuket, Thailand. Today, he is a bartender for the MSC Divina Cruise Line, where he gets to spread his joy to others.

We might not know much more than that, but we can learn some from where Pepsi works.

The MSC Divina was inspired — and christened — by classic film star Sophia Loren, featuring a “wide range” of bars on board, any of which Pepsi can be, including the Top Sail Lounge and The One Bar. The Divina launched in 2011 and had its maiden voyage through the Mediterranean in 2012, and boasts accommodations for up to 3,500 guests with a 1,300+ crew.

It offers a wealth of amenities, including Swarovski crystal staircases, infinity pools, and a piazza. A yacht club within the ship also provides ‘round-the-clock room service for its guests.

Today, the MSC Divina continues to travel around the world with stops in the Caribbean, Barcelona, New York, and elsewhere. It was most recently in Miami, the home of Marysol Patton and Alexia Nepola from The Real Housewives of Miami.

In this season of the RHUGT, Pepsi is the right-hand man for not just the Miami ‘Wives but for The Real Housewives of Potomac’s Gizelle Bryant and Candiace Dillard Bassett, The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City cousins Heather Gay and Whitney Rose, The Real Housewives of New York City’s Leah McSweeney, and The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Porsha Williams.

Pepsi is the go-to guy as each ‘Wife organizes outings and meals for the group in each RHUGT episode. He ensures no small detail goes overlooked.

In RHUGT Season 3, Episode 5, which aired on Peacock Thursday, April 6, Pepsi treated the ladies to some Muay Thai (a form of Thai boxing that uses kicking, elbowing, and other forms of hand-to-hand combat). The session brought some funny moments, but Pepsi wasn’t laughing when RHONY’s Leah had a fainting spell after the pack headed to the city on a sweltering day.

Thankfully, Pepsi was there for the rescue (the hero we all need in our lives), bringing cool wipes and holding Leah’s hand throughout her dramatic ordeal.

Though it’s unknown if Pepsi will be as hands-on while aboard the MSC Divina or whether he’ll return to Villa Aye (if the work is seasonal), we’re sure Pepsi will continue spreading his infectious joy to those around him.

And, hey, if anyone on Bravo’s Below Deck needs a hand, perhaps we’ll see him again in another part of the Bravo universe (we can dream, can’t we)?
