Below Deck, Bravo, News, Reality TV

Below Deck Sailing Yacht fans want to know why the next installment of the show didn’t air on Monday, May 2. There was no known hiatus at the time. It was initially scheduled to appear in its usual timeslot. However, it was changed to a brief hiatus at the very last minute.

This came as a disappointment to the viewers. The last episode showed the second stew Gabriela Barragan leaving the Parsifal III behind. There was also confusion over what happened between third stew Ashley Marti and first mate Gary King. Fans accused her of assaulting Gary while he was inebriated.

There was no reason for the brief hiatus. Most Below Deck Sailing Yacht fans were heartbroken to find nothing to watch. Some were confused by the abrupt change in schedule, while others were confused. Others think it had to do with a scheduling conflict, while others think it has to do with editing future episodes.

  • “Why isn’t #BelowDeckSailingYacht on tonight?”
  • “#BelowDeckSailingYacht I am so disappointed that there is no new episode tonight.”
  • “Absolutely sucks #BelowDeckSailingYacht won’t be on tonight.”
  • “Oh no, missed my favorite show tonight! Wonder why it isn’t on. Hmm.”

Does it have to do with the Ashley Marti allegations?

Was the reason why a new episode of Below Deck Sailing Yacht didn’t air on May 2 because of the growing allegations surrounding Ashley Marti? Fans haven’t forgotten about the previous episode. It’s caught controversy because of what happened between Ashley and Gary. Some think she took advantage of him in the Master Suite.

She followed him in there after their crew night out. Ashley gave him a massage and then removed her clothes. Gary told her that he didn’t want to hook up. But, she got on top of him and told him that he was already inside of her and there was nothing she could do.

Despite being intoxicated, Gary gathered the strength to get Ashley off of him and leave the room. The following day, he admitted he didn’t know what happened. Ashley says they hooked up. But, fans are doubtful as Gary was not in the right frame of mind.

What are your thoughts? Do you think Below Deck Sailing Yacht didn’t air last week because of the allegations? Do you agree that Ashley assaulted Gary? Sound off below in the comment section.

Below Deck Sailing Yacht will return to its regular timeslot on Monday, May 9 at 8 p.m. ET. Season 3, Episode 11 will stream the next day on Peacock.

  1. I too believe it was rape. Had the tables been turned he would have been fired and charged. She should be too. She did it out of jealousy towards Gabriela.

  2. He clearly does not care for her, she needs to at least be fired at the very least if charges are not filed.

  3. If the tables were turned, Gary would have been fired and charges pressed. What’s good for the goose is good for the gander. As a woman who has been sexually assaulted, I’m horrified that this was tolerated. Ashley has blatantly ignored Gary’s expression of non interest all season. This was premeditated. I hope the last intervenes.

  4. When a woman says no it’s no and when a man says no it’s no. So from a legal standpoint they would charge her with sexual assault.

  5. Ashley has been forcing herself on Gary since she stepped onto yacht. Gary has rebuffed her advances repeatedly and has never encouraged Ashley’s behavior. She should never be allowed on Below Deck again.

  6. It was definitely assault no means no regardless of what gender you are. Ashley should be held accountable and be forced to leave the show. If the roles were reversed what do you think would be happening?
    That being said there is way too much blackout drinking happening. If you can’t remember what you did the night before that should be a wake up call that your drinking is out of control.

  7. This is a perfect example of a woman committing sexual assault on a man. She should be arrested and charged. It doesn’t matter if they were drunk or not. If this had happened the other way around he would have been tarred and feathered by now. There are a lot of people that think a woman can’t sexually assault a man, but here’s an example of how it can happen on televisions all over the world.

  8. I think Ashley has been throwing herself at Gary the whole season! She thinks her large assets are enough but right from the start he told her no, he wasn’t interested. I don’t think they had sex but Ashley wants everyone to think they did, especially Daisy

  9. Their is something wrong with this girl she has zero self respect. She is constantly looking for sex .with different people.and said her sister would sleep with all the guys she wanted.her mom and dad must be so proud of these two little hookers!!!

  10. This girl has some serious issues!! Definitely need some psychiatric help. The way she acts is just not normal. She absolutely has no self-respect.

  11. It was 100 percent sexual assault
    If it was the other way around he would be in jail right now..she is disgusting.

  12. What Bravo chose to air appeared to be a sexual assault. They gave no warning to the audience and did nothing to address it when thousands of people on the Below Deck Reddit were all agreeing they were shocked, and many, including myself, were triggered by it in an extreme way. If a rape didn’t occur, they shouldn’t have edited it to sound like a rape did occur. If it did, and Gary doesn’t want to pursue it or address it, or doesn’t currently perceive in that way, it doesn’t really matter for the audience. We all heard the recording of a rape on TV, and we deserve an apology and an explanation that isn’t gaslighting or minimizing.

  13. That story makes no sense. Gary sleeps with anything and being drunk isn’t a good excuse. He knew exactly what he was doing. Now people know how girls feel!!

  14. Ashley Marti is a pig, I could tell that from episode 1!!!

    Keeping her on the show must be little andy cohen’s idea because he loves the sleazy side of everything!
