Several viewers are now wondering what Michael does for a living, and how he can afford to board the boat for a five-star service. We found out all about his career background and how he became so successful.

Michael on Below Deck
Michael and his fellow guests seem to cause some chaos on board, which led to being called “morons” by Captain Lee Rosbach. When dining with him, he asked the Captain what his wife does for work.
When he responded by saying she has paid her duties and is retired, Michael said: “She has to put up with you ass.” However, the drama gets worse as Michael’s friend Justin tells Heather to throw herself off the boat.
Justin Richards tells fellow guest Terri Foss Augustyn to “get the f*** down these stairs”, which Heather tries to diffuse by getting in the middle. First officer Eddie Lucas then describes the situation as “dangerous”.
