    As an actor who has been cast in “reality show” I can assure you it’s all scripted. The yacht is chartered by the production company, crew/actors hired, even the guests are actors. In 28 years as captain, I can categorically say that this show is Bravo Sierra.

  2. Captain Tom

    No, as a captain, the show is a disgrace. The captains I have ever worked with would fire the crew for acting that way. None of the show is really how it is to work on a yacht. The crew is not professional at all.

    It may be overly dramatic but we get it. It’s entertainment and sure the audience knows that. Would never have thought a detriment to the industry!!! I sit back watch and enjoy!!! #Bravo #BelowDeck

    I’m so happy to see all of the comments. I was in the industry 20 years ago and none of that would fly on any of the yachts I was in!

    Everybody tears it down, but the positive aspect of the show, people with dreams of traveling on a beer budget see the show and it gives them hopes of entering the industry. If they took the show off, what would there be? If there were no drama, it would be boring and nobody would watch it. For a show to be successful, there must be viewers to get advertising.
