See What RHUGT Season 3's Concierge Pepsi Really Thinks of the Cast
Armed with cocktails, mocktails, and some dance moves, Pepsi is a delightful addition to Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip Season 3.
The concierge is the backbone of any luxurious stay, as seen as the Housewives head to Thailand for some fun — and often dramatic — adventures.
Meet Pepsi, who first appeared as a guest in the first look of The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip’s Season 3.
Thepsiri, also known as Pepsi, was born in Thailand on November 24, 1971. He has worked in the hospitality industry for many years. Currently, he's a bartender for MSC Divina Cruise Line.
Though his part in the first look might be brief, Pepsi’s imitating the Housewives was a surefire sign that trouble lies ahead in the Land of Smiles.
“You shouting, you fight, two minute, ‘Hey hey, give me a hug,’” an upset Pepsi told the Housewives. “That is fake.”
But it’s hard to imagine what could have perturbed Phuket’s Villa Aye lead concierge, given his otherwise bubbly personality and genial mannerisms, as seen in the first three RHUGT episodes, which dropped Thursday on Peacock.
One by one, Pepsi warmly greeted the 'Wives as they arrived at Villa Aye, the 26,900-square foot wonder on Phuket’s luxurious “Millionaire’s Mile.” Wearing a branded white polo as part of the resort’s uniform, Pepsi explained he learned “Tinglish,” a fusion of English and Thai, from watching and rewatching English-speaking films, including Star Wars.
His impression of Darth Vader saying, "I am your father,” was especially good.
The chivalrous Pepsi welcomed the girls with open arms, a big smile, and his happy dancing, all of which he does a lot of throughout the season’s first three episodes. In the season premiere, he could be seen running to The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City’s Whitney Rose — who became exhausted while trying to find the villa — and shouted, “Do it with me, Pepsi is here!”
Let’s face it: We could all use some of that Pepsi energy in our lives.
Pepsi catered to the women’s every whim, all while managing the villa’s wait staff. He was happy to show the ladies some Thai cuisine for their first “grab-and-go” lunch at the resort, including gourmet vegetable rolls, pad thai, and seasoned chicken wings. (You can learn more about what the Housewives ate during their trip here).
Despite The Real Housewives of New York City’s Leah McSweeney — who some Housewives said made the “worst first impression” — being unhappy with her accommodations, Pepsi jumped at every opportunity to make the women’s stay as comfortable as possible.

Pepsi promised to be there first thing every morning and bring his guests breakfast in bed. And when The Real Housewives of Potomac’s Candiace Dillard Bassett prepared for her upcoming live dinner performance, Pepsi didn't hesitate to offer himself as a bodyguard, even if it meant wearing a dress.
“I try my best to have the girls have a good experience [in] Thailand,” Pepsi said in Episode 2. “I want all of them [to] keep these [memories] back home.”
Pepsi was asked by RHUGT producers what his first impressions were of the Housewives, and in typical Pepsi fashion, he brought only positivity when giving his thoughts in the confessional. He began by commenting on the sarong-sporting Whitney, stating: “Whitney [is] beautiful. Beautiful, smile all the time, and very kind.”
Pepsi referred to Potomac housewife Gizelle Bryant as “funny." And as for The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Porsha Williams, Pepsi merely said, “Wow, wow, wow,” with a laugh, and then compared The Real Housewives of Miami’s Alexia Nepola to “a rabbit” for never being still.
“Heather, quite like a princess,” he said of Salt Lake City housewife Heather Gay. “Everything has to be perfect.”
Pepsi said something similar for his first impression of Leah, whom he referred to as “your highness.”
“Calm, but she still have a secret in her,” he said. “But I will find out what is that.”
Pepsi went on to describe what he thought of Miami Housewife Marysol Patton, stating she was “so beautiful” and ended his observations by calling Candiace “a superstar.”
Pepsi, the life coach we all need, is showing signs of being his own superstar. Of course, based on the show’s first look, it might be stormy seas ahead for the lovable Pepsi (and we don’t just mean Whitney and Heather Bad Weather). We’re dying to know if he’ll have a change of opinion about the ladies as The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip goes on.
New episodes of RHUGT Season 3 drop every Thursday on Peacock.
