Yacht chef Rachel Hargrove made a dramatic exit during the last episode of Below Deck. And now viewers wonder if she’s really quit…
Following a drunken night of Rachel missing her boyfriend, a preference sheet meeting on Bravo’s Below Deck seemed to be the tipping point for her.
Rachel was seen sitting down with other crew members, including Captain Lee, bosun Eddie Lucas, and chief stew Francesca Rubi.
And it wasn’t long before Rachel began to swear in response to an upcoming charter guest’s demands. So has she actually quit?
Why do viewers think Rachel has quit?
After hearing the demands of upcoming yacht guest Bryan Guarnieri during a meeting, Rachel announced she wanted a flight home.
She labelled the demands of guest Bryan Guarnieri – one of North Carolina’s top realtors – as “ostentatious”.
He had said he expected “nothing but the finest service during his charter”.
Some of his demands involved a 10-course dinner with American fine dining – filled with steaks and seafood – and Rachel wasn’t happy. She said:
This preference sheet just seems absolutely ridiculous. At this point, I’m overwhelmed so I have to walk away. And if I can’t walk away, that’s when it’s gonna just build and that’s when I explode.
