Below Deck Sailing Yacht was nowhere to be seen on May 2nd, much to the disappointment of Bravo viewers. We’ve got all the details on why the yachting crew didn’t air their usual dramas, and when the show is returning.

However, when the usual Monday night episode didn’t air on May 2nd, many were left confused about the yacht’s absence. But don’t worry, the show isn’t gone forever and will be setting sail again very soon.

Fans react to Sailing Yacht missing episode

When Below Deck Sailing Yacht wasn’t on Bravo and Peacock TV on May 2nd, fans were devastated. As the reality TV show usually fills the 9pm slot on a Monday evening, there was no explanation for its absence.

Looking on Twitter, there were several heartbroken viewers left with a TV slot to fill. Some thought it was down to a scheduling problem, while others were simply confused.

One took to social media and asked: “Why isn’t #BelowDeckSailingYacht on tonight?

Another wrote: “#BelowDeckSailingYacht I am so disappointed that there is no new episode tonight.”

Absolutely sucks #BelowDeckSailingYacht won’t be on tonight,” a regular viewer reacted to the no-show.

Why was Below Deck Sailing Yacht not on May 2nd?

Below Deck Sailing Yacht didn’t air on May 2nd due to the Summer House reunion filling its place. The much-anticipated finale meant that the new episode of the sailing show was moved to a later date.

Due to the priority of the big Summer House finale, Bravo streamed all 14 episodes of the show’s sixth season on Monday from 7am, before the finale aired at 9pm.

The Summer House reunion looks were nothing short of glitz and glam, which included a Rolex on Andrea Denver’s wrist and stunning Schutz shoes on Lindsay Hubbard’s feet.
