Little People, Big World: Is Zach Roloff's Ego Out Of Control?

90 day fiancé: jasmine pineda's latest public appearance fuels gino palazzolo split rumors, what happened to austin reed after married at first sight season 17.

  • Seasoned captain Glenn Shephard and crew were unsure if they would go through with the charter after crashing the boat twice.
  • Erica Rose, known for her appearance on The Bachelor, is now a lawyer and a partner at the Rose Sanders Law Firm.
  • Erica and her friends made quite an impression on Below Deck Sailing Yacht, bringing drama and excitement to the show.

Below Deck Sailing Yacht season 2 introduced charter guest Erica Rose, and it's time to learn more about her. She joined the Parsafil crew alongside several friends to enjoy a mini-getaway in Croatia. However, the crew was getting annoyed with her and her friends, as they were more demanding than the crew expected. Second stewardess Dani even had to give one of the guests a massage because she felt stressed out due to being on a yacht 24/7, surrounded by her friends. As fans await Below Deck Sailing Yacht season 5 , previous charter guests should be revisited.

Before Erica and her group of girlfriends joined the yacht, seasoned captain Glenn Shephard and the rest of the crew were unsure if they would go through with the charter after crashing the boat twice. While Captain Glenn was parking the yacht by the dock, a mechanical error occurred that short-circuited the thrusters. This caused him to crash into the pier. Luckily, no one was hurt, but a significant amount of cosmetic damage was done to the back of the boat. However, Erica Rose and her friends were able to board the Parsifal. The drama on Below Deck Sailing Yacht is just one of the reasons all the shows in the franchise are some of the best reality TV shows .

Erica Rose Was On The Bachelor

Before Erica Rose was known as the second to last charter guest on Below Deck Sailing Yacht , she was known as a contestant on The Bachelor . Erica competed on The Bachelor season 9 in 2006. Prince Lorenzo Borghese was the leading man during that season. The lawyer exited the limo wearing a bejeweled tiara to prove to the Prince that she was ready to become his princess. However, Erica was not destined to be his princess, as she was eliminated after three weeks. Soon after being eliminated, Erica appeared on the first season of the VH1 reality series You're Cut Off! and later starred in two seasons of the now-canceled The Bachelor spin-off, Bachelor Pad (via Distractify ).

Erica Rose Is A Lawyer

Since her early days as a reality star, Erica has started a family and grown her career as a lawyer. After she left The Bachelor , she attended the University of Houston Law Center for four years and later obtained her Master's Degree in Entertainment Law from Southwestern Law School. Erica and her now-husband, Charles Sanders, are partners at the Rose Sanders Law Firm PLLC. Before she found love with Charles, she was engaged to fellow lawyer Galen Gentry. They welcomed a daughter, Holland Rose Madelaine Gentry, born in September 2016. After she married Charles in 2017, the couple welcomed their daughter, Aspen Rose Sanders.

Erica may have moved on from her The Bachelor days, but she still enjoys being on camera. Her time on Below Deck Sailing Yacht may have ended, but she and her friends made quite an impression on the show. Hopefully, there will be equally exciting games in seasons to come.

‘Below Deck Sailing Yacht’ guest Erica Rose: Gary is ‘too good’ for Daisy

Thanks for contacting us. We've received your submission.

A split of "Below Deck Sailing Yacht" stars Gary King and Daisy Kelliher with an inset of charter guest Erica Rose

“Below Deck Sailing Yacht” guest Erica Rose does not ship Gary King and Daisy Kelliher. 

In fact, Rose — who appeared on “BDSY” Season 2 and came back for a second charter on Monday night’s episode — exclusively tells Page Six that she thinks King is “too good” for “two-faced” Kelliher. 

“Gary could do so much better,” says Rose, 37, who maintained a friendly relationship with the handsome first mate in between seasons. 

“All the girls on the boat were interested in him — even my friends. Gary’s a really great guy and Daisy is just not a really great person. She’s actually really two-faced.”

Rose — who reality TV fans may recognize from her explosive stint on “The Bachelor” Season 9 in 2006 and subsequent spinoffs — tells Page Six that she believes chief stew Kelliher, 34, only hooked up with King, 33, to get a rise out of co-star and third stew Ashley Marti.

“You could just tell she really loved watching Ashley get jealous and I truly think that’s part of the reason she decided to hook up with Gary,” says the Texas-based attorney. 

“Ashley told me that she was into Gary before he even kissed Daisy, so it seems like that was part of her motivation to go after Gary. She didn’t want Ashley to have that type of attention. She likes being the queen of the boat.” 

Rose says that she finds Kelliher to be “really desperate for any kind of attention” and suspects that her pursuit of King was also “for ratings and to be relevant” on the reality show. 

“Gary and Daisy are just two very different people,” she says. “Gary is not a fame whore.”

Rose says King had purer intentions while exploring a romance with Kelliher. Still, the Bachelor Nation alum surmises that Kelliher was nothing more than a “rebound” for King after his relationship with Alli Dore fizzled out last season. 

“When I got on the boat, I asked Gary, ‘Oh, are you interested in any of the girls?’ And he’s like, ‘You know what? I’m still really heartbroken over Alli,’” she claims of a conversation that didn’t air. 

King and Kelliher, seen here with chef Marcos Spaziani, share a steamy hot tub makeout session later this season.

Rose feels as though King became intimate with Kelliher simply because of her proximity to Dore, her best friend and “Pita Party” podcast co-host . (These days, Dore is happily coupled up with boyfriend Benny Thompson, with whom she shares 6-month-old son River.)

“I could tell he really loved Alli last season and he was vulnerable and admitted that he couldn’t commit to a new relationship because he was really heartbroken over her,” Rose says.

“And he knows that Daisy’s one of her close friends, so maybe he felt like hooking up with her would bring him closer to Alli?” 

For their part, Kelliher and King — who share a steamy hot tub makeup session later this season — explained their dynamic while chatting with Page Six last month. 

“We kind of hate each other, but we love each other,” Kelliher said at the time. “So sometimes you’re a bit like, ‘Oh, well, maybe we should just make out.’ And afterwards you’re like, ‘Oh, no, we should never do that again.’ So it was complicated for us … I think it was all a bit of a rollercoaster.”

Added King, “I think Daisy and I’ve always had this like underlying thing for each other. Maybe that’s just from my part, I don’t know.”

But Rose warns King to “stay away” from Kelliher as the lawyer says she’s been burned by the Bravolebrity herself. 

Despite Kelliher calling Rose’s return to “BDSY” the “worst news ever” — Rose is infamous for her exacting standards — the latter TV personality claims that the women remained close over social media after her first on-camera voyage.

“I was on Season 2 with a group of my girlfriends. We left them the biggest tip of the season. Not only that, Daisy kept in touch with me throughout the year on Instagram,” Rose says. “She would say things, like, ‘Wow, girl, you’ve lost so much weight. I need to lose weight. I’m gaining weight. Help me,’ and things like that.”

Then, just weeks ago, Kelliher blocked Rose on Instagram. 

“It was so random,” Rose says. “But now it’s clear to me that she just didn’t want me to catch anything she has been saying about me over the last few weeks. She wants to paint me as this bad guy of ‘Below Deck’ and I don’t know why, but I think it’s time she looked in the mirror.” 

“Below Deck Sailing Yacht” airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.

Below Deck Sailing Yacht: Who Are Charter Guests Erica Rose & Charles

Below Deck Sailing Yacht Charter Guests Erica Rose and Husband Charles Sanders

Below Deck Sailing Yacht charter guest Erica Rose already made a name for herself in season 2 as one of the worst charter guests in Below Deck history. But despite constantly complaining on her first Parsifal III voyage, Erica Rose wanted another charter and drama on season 3.

This go around, Erica Rose didn’t just bring her friends and her mom. Her melodramatic husband Charles Sanders joined the trip and out-complained his wife on Below Deck Sailing Yacht season 3. He also gave Chief Stew Daisy Kelliher and Chef Marcos Spaziani headaches. Charles’ childish antics and classlessness as he dined and sailed in luxury appalled Below Deck fans. So naturally, fans want to know more about who Erica Rose, Charles are.

Erica Rose is A Bachelor Nation Alumna & Texan Lawyer

Erica Rose Complaining On Below Deck Sailing Yacht Season 3

Erica Rose may look familiar to Below Deck fans who watch other reality TV. She first appeared on The Bachelor season 9 , where women competed for cosmetics entrepreneur Prince Lorenzo Borghese’s heart. On the show she portrayed herself as spoiled rich princess who wore tiaras and cost her renowned plastic surgeon father nearly “half a million dollars a year”. She also claimed she “could never live without my maid or my personal astrologer.”

Being a fan-favorite villain, she subsequently appeared on Bachelor Pad season 2 and 3. It was during her time on the 2nd season of Bachelor Pad that Erica Rose was the main victim of an abusive game where men threw eggs at the woman they found least attractive. The infamous “game” left Erica emotionally scarred for years from the bullying on national television, which led to her getting plastic surgery. Inside Edition documented Erica’s transformation, including liposuction around her chin, back, abs, and thighs, as well as breast reduction and lift.

Besides a physical transformation, Erica also changed her career from Paris Hilton socialite to Legally Blonde lawyer. To help give her reputation a makeover, Erica

She wants her own reality TV court show like Judge Judy.

She also appeared on The Dr. Phil show as a “spoiled and entitled” young woman in need of a reality check.

Since then, she has become a successful attorney, mother and wife. She practices entertainment and media law, as well as personal injury, family and defamation law. Erica now makes the big bucks to afford luxury yachting without daddy’s money.

Her Husband Charles Sanders Is A Lawyer Too & They Run A Law Firm Together

Erica Rose's Husband Charles Sanders On Below Deck Sailing Yacht Season 3

Charles Sanders, Erica Rose’s husband of five years, is also an attorney and investor. He specializes in car accident lawsuits, and is a partner with his wife at their law firm, Rose Sanders Injury Law . The couple reconnected because of a fat-shamer and the dating app Bumble. Erica and Charles have one daughter together, and Charles is also the stepdad of Erica’s first daughter with ex fiance Galen Gentry .

View this post on Instagram A post shared by Charles Sanders (@charlesksanders)

Charles has taken a lot of heat since his appearance on Below Deck Sailing Yacht season 3. It didn’t help that he trashed the food of Chef Marcos and then left a very poor tip of only $6,500.

$6500??? SIX THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS FOR HOW THEY TREATED AND ABUSED THE STAFF?? Disgusting. Anyone know these people in real life can we all troll them ? #BDSY #belowdecksailing #BelowDeckSailingYacht #BelowDeck #Bravo — Herman Munster Shoes (@Discountess_) March 15, 2022

Despite Charles’ villainous persona on Below Deck , on his Instagram he looks like a happy and loving father and husband. After the blowback he faced from fans, Charles said his “gross” comment about Chef Marcos’ food was scripted . Apparently show producers encouraged him to be a jerk while on the yacht. This is the second accusation this year about the Below Deck show crew fabricating drama. Below Deck season 9’s Rayna Lindsey claimed the show is fake back in January. It just goes to show you that reality TV isn’t really real sometimes.

At the end of the week of the last episode with them as charter guests aired, Erica told fans on Instagram she is stressed out from all the social media dragging her family took from being on the show. Charles also posted a nearly two-hour video apologizing for his “despicable and disgusting” behavior on Below Deck .

'Below Deck Sailing Yacht': 'Bachelor' Alum Erica Rose Catches Alli Gossiping About Her Chatty Mom (Exclusive)

Erica Rose is looking for some drama on Below Deck Sailing Yacht

In ET's 'Below Deck Sailing Yacht' sneak peek, charter guest/'Bachelor' alum Erica Rose walks in on the stews talking about her mom.

Once a reality star, always a drama queen? Viewers will find out this week on  Below Deck Sailing Yacht , as  The Bachelor   alum/primary charter guest Erica Rose seems out to start something with the crew. To back up a little, Erica's mom/co-primary, Cindi, requested a massage from chief stewardess Daisy Kelliher. It's not a request the crew gets often, but thankfully third stew Alli Dore "did massage for a whole year at beauty school" and is ready to "wing it." 

"As a yachtie, you work so hard," she says in a confessional. "You know, you put up with a fair bit of s**t. I don't really like giving massages, but at least Cindi's gonna be happy." In the last episode, Alli endured quite the with Cindi, who watched as Alli unpacked her belongings and put them away. As Alli worked, Cindi shared an extreme amount of details about her personal life, including her history in teaching mime, ventriloquism and puppetry.  "It'll probably be the fastest hour of my life, 'cause she'll probably just chat the whole time," Alli cracks to Daisy, just as Erica emerges from the guest quarters. 

"I heard you guys talking," Erica coos in her signature, sing-song-y voice, to which Alli replies, "Just joking around!" before scurrying down to Cindi's room to complete the massage. Meanwhile, Erica heads out onto the deck to announce to the rest of the charter what she just encountered... even though all she heard was Alli saying, "It'll probably be the fastest hour of my life, 'cause she'll probably just chat the whole time."

Watch it all unfold here:

"I was just really annoyed about something," she announces to both no one and everyone. "I heard Alli gossiping about my mom." "I wouldn't like that, I'll be honest," one of Erica's pals replies. "Even if my mom is being over the top and everything, I don't want to hear anybody bad-mouth my mother." 

Fans will have to tune in to see how Erica handles the situation/non-situation, but Daisy did tell ET that Erica and co. were one of the tougher charters in season 2.

"It's definitely up there with Barrie's charter," Daisy said, referencing the very demanding primary from a few trips earlier, who was vacationing with his ex-husband and their respective new beaus. "[If] you're going to put a big group of strong women there amongst the mix of the crew, yeah, it's going to equal drama. It was hard. It wasn't easy. It was a tough charter, and I will definitely say it's up there with them. They were definitely the most interesting and challenging charters." "Maybe there was an element that they wanted screen time," she remarked, "but I also did see with all the guests, not just these two groups, a lot of heated arguments, drunken moments, that you don't see that didn't make the show on. I think the pressures of COVID, I think the pressures of a lot of alcohol... sometimes the dynamics were a bit weird. Because of COVID, only certain people could fly over, so they were pulling these strange groups together. Maybe they wanted a bit of TV time, but I also think that there was actually quite a bit of real, genuine drama there, as well."

Below Deck Sailing Yacht  airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.

Exclusive: Erica Rose defends husband Charles Sanders amid Below Deck Sailing Yacht backlash

Below Deck Sailing Yacht charter guest Erica Rose stands up for her husband Chuck's behavior.

Erica Rose has defended her husband, Charles Sanders, aka Chuck, amid all the Below Deck Sailing Yacht Season 3 backlash.

There’s no question Erica and Chuck have brought a lot of drama to Below Deck Sailing Yacht. Chief stew Daisy Kelliher hasn’t held back expressing her opinion of the group on and off-screen.

Below Deck Sailing Yacht charter guest Erica Rose defends Chuck amid backlash

Chuck has earned a lot of backlash for his behavior on Below Deck Sailing Yacht, especially his gross food rant and bashing of chef Marcos Spaziani. Erica admitted the personal attacks on her and Chuck have been hard for her, but he has not been fazed about it.

“He has a really thick skin, and I’m protective over him. I really love him,” she expressed. “I’ve got these negative comments about him, on my own personal Instagram, people are messaging me and saying like, ‘Oh no, how could you be married to him? He’s so mean,'” she shared.

Erica explained Chuck was acting, or rather playing up, a character that the producers liked. While his behavior was giving the producers what they wanted, she clarified that nothing Chuck did was scripted.

“He said he was acting. He was a theater major in college and he was just having fun. It was not scripted, and no one handed him a script. No one told him to do or say anything,” she stated.

Like on Season 2, Erica, Chuck, and their group met with producers where they were told “all types of stuff.” One thing they were encouraged to do was share complaints if any arose.

She feels Chuck got caught up in the reality TV of it all, as some people do when they are first on a reality TV show.

“I think he was getting caught up in it. I do think that when cameras are around, people’s personalities get amplified and especially when for the first time,” Erica said. “He felt like it was his job, even though we aren’t paid to be there. But in the moment, he felt like it was his job to be as entertaining and over-the-top.”

Erica explained Chuck was more of himself on the first night. As for the next morning with the omelette, she revealed he would not act like that in real life. Chuck would have eaten it, unless there were tomatoes on the omelette because he hates tomatoes.

What else does Erica want Below Deck Sailing Yacht fans to know about Chuck and their charter?

Aside from defending her husband, Erica also shared Chuck’s behavioral moments were far from the only moments that occurred on their charter.

“There were happy moments that weren’t shown like when he bought a bottle of Scotch and was just drinking it with the crew and having fun,” she recalled.

Speaking of having fun, Erica spilled Gabriela Barragan led a yoga class one day. Erica called it a beautiful moment for her group.

View this post on Instagram A post shared by Erica Rose ? Sanders (@ericatherose)

Along with getting to know Gabriela, Erica revealed that her group got to know Gary King, Captain Glenn Shephard, and Colin MacRae better than on her previous charter.

Despite the criticism, Erica shared she wants people to know that Chuck’s screen time was “not an accurate portrayal of who he is.” As for Chuck, he’s just happy he was able to entertain audiences.

Below Deck Sailing Yacht airs Mondays at 8/7c on Bravo.

I guess Chuck’s “acting” explains their gross tip as well?

Stacey Allen Ledovsky

Did everyone see Chuckie taking money out of the case on the table? It looked like he was stealing part of the tip.

anne0

Totally! Chuck was playing the role of DOUCHEBAG

Darcy

There is nothing she could ever say to explain away his behavior. They are a miserable group and I hope they never are on TV again. They should be embarrassed. And that tip just shows what little class they have and what little respect they have for people that work in the service industry.

Anonymous

They are both disgusting and vile. I hope their law practice suffers because of their behavior on this show. Horrid people.

When will the crew receive the rest of their tip???

Anonymous

Tonight’s episode had several gross moments. I was mortified by the mom never acknowledging that she made a disgusting mess all over the couch, then denied it, and had the balls to say everyone else had to pay for it. So classless. And Erica was so rude and two faced. I fell over when she mentioned how dramatic her friends were on the last season when it was her creating the drama. And I also think it’s embarrassing she hasn’t addressed the tip yet. That was horrific. Hopefully they’re banned from Below Deck and any yacht moving forward. I sincerely hope her hair stylist ditched her.

Tbone

“I’ve never wished a man dead, but I have read some obituaries with great pleasure.” Clarence Darrow

RB

Vile, vile disgusting people. Slobs all the way around. Who in the hell puts bronzer on their legs and then sits on a white couch and then denies it was her? The crew went over and above for this obnoxious group and the tip they left was insulting. They should be ashamed. I sincerely hope they are never allowed to rent a super yacht again. It is obvious they have no class and do not know how to be decent to people. Shameless. Just shameless.

Laurie

That wasn’t entertaining, it was a complete lack of character.

Maria

Don’t quit your day job Chuckie. Hopefully this will give your clients reason to pause. Honestly, if I saw my attorney behaving like this, I’d drop him! There are plenty of well behaved qualified attorneys out there who don’t need to go on reality shows to stroke their fragile egos!

They are horrid people and have no business on a super yacht. In Chuckle’s world he left a MacDonalds tip cheap ahole

Cherri

And the reason for the insulting tip? They should be banished to bus travel and fast food.

brechlintom2

I have not seen the latest episode so I don’t know what the tip was. Sounds like it was pretty bad. I knew it was gonna be bad when the moron said he was going to reduce the tip every time he was unhappy. That being said, maybe they need the $$ more then the staff. Mom didn’t even fly first class.

David

If you can’t afford to tip don’t pretend to afford the experience. Playing to the cameras doesn’t mean one has to be a prick.

Christopher W Fiene

If they can’t afford the tip, they can’t afford the trip. That’s certainly no excuse in my book…nor in the book if any hard working service industry professional.

Kiki B

I was physically repulsed looking and listening to Erica, her husband, and her mother. Like truly got the willys. Their personalities were schizophrenic, obnoxious and devoid of any redeeming qualities. And its always someone else’s fault. And the amount of sub par plastic surgery in the last year was comedic. Just say No! Can you imagine the filth in their house? Makes ya want to run right over for a meal of creamed spinach and e coli. Full time housekeepers for sure just to pick up after the adults. But no chef necessary cause Momma’s cooking Spaghettios for dinner.

patricia boas

bottom line, acting or not.. douchbag and i dont believe the drinking with the crew… hes not a nice person… you dont act like that, especially on camera… and i hope his business whatever he does fails, along with her.. you dont treat people that way

Kelly

So screwing the crew out of decent tip was, “acting”? Yup, that a jerk!

Dizzy

He jumped to the front of the line of assholes on TV really fast….I’m with the cook. Beat his a** down. Lawyer or not. I would have been locked up as well….I’ve never seen anything like him. No less on a channel that’s already full of people who have little regards for others…I would love to see their business suffer so they can no longer charter anything….not even a rickshaw…..just maybe a damaged old hot air balloon….wishful thinking….

Laura

Remember her mother falling face first in the water and all she was concerned about was her phone? Horrible people.

Scratchypants

Or when she asked her guests not to fight because “that happened last time and it wasn’t for me.” 100% self-absorbed.

Your husband is a huge douche. Oh and way to leave the sh**tiest tip I have ever seen on the show…

Was their ridiculously low tip part of the act too? “Chuck” should give up acting and Erica should get her head out of the clouds.

That’s all well and good, but what about the bull $#!+ tip he left for the crew? Was that acting too? She can defend her husband all she wants, but his actions show he’s an @$$hole to the core! His “acting” cost people real income.

Opinionist

They are not working for tips. They are working on contract for a television production company.

Unanimous

Does anyone remember how Erica acted on the Bachelor? Her and Chuckles are two peas in a pod. The lousy tip was disgusting.

It’s hard to believe that anyone believes it was real. As for the tip – don’t you realize that these so called yachties are paid to appear on the show? Do you really believe they’re on television, working for TIPS??? Open your eyes.

Roxie

I do not feel sorry for you – you chose to stay with that douche bag. You could have stood up to him and told him STFU and get some manners. As to “acting” tell it to the hand – he is just plain rude – he is definitely no actor – just low class, no manners.

1. NoONE believes that was an act – just normal low class, no manners on his part. 2. You are no better than he is by not telling him to STFU. 3. He sure did take tip money from what was given for the group from everything I’m reading – he attempted to screw the other couple who left early & gave him their tip money. 4. LOW class – left mess on sofa and then lied about it – fake tan is very bad. I guess maybe they gave the other couple’s money for the couch??? Tr__hbags! Please DO NOT EVER COME BACK ON HERE – WE DO NOT WANT TO SEE YOU!@!!

Erica Rose Apologizes After Disastrous Below Deck Sailing Yacht Episode

By Alex Darus

Even though the stars of Below Deck Sailing Yacht are obviously the yachties, the guests play an important supporting role. It’s not often that we remember the names of guests beyond each individual season of Below Deck , but there are exceptions. A few guests have so much fun, they can’t help but come back for another charter. Sometimes, it’s a good thing when the clients are polite and good tippers. Oftentimes, the pendulum swings in the opposite direction, to the dismay of Captain Glenn Shephard and the crew.

The current season of Below Deck Sailing Yacht had a recent experience of the latter. Erica Rose is a vet of Sailing Yacht . She is best remembered for her Donald Trump -inspired bathing suit during her first charter.  That, and for her friends who got into an epic girl fight. This go around, she opted for a Joe Biden suit, so she doesn’t discriminate. While her antics are entertaining, she and her guests usually create a living hell for the crew assigned to take care of them.

Erica and her team recently returned to Below Deck Sailing Yacht and it was nothing short of a mess . Her husband threw a drunken temper tantrum about the food that was downright insulting to Marcos Spaziani. Her guests left a tornado where ever they went, and Daisy Kelliher and her stews were constantly cleaning up after them. In the end, Erica and the crew didn’t even give a good tip. It was clearly wrong to both the crew and the viewers, and now Erica is publically apologizing.

Erica decided to post an Instagram video poking fun at her behavior onboard Parsifal III. It was in the style of her dancing over audio of someone apologizing. She wrote in the caption that we don’t know “the half of it,” even though we can all obviously see she only gave half of the tip that was owed. And that her boo only has half a brain (at least, that’s how he was acting).

As if that wasn’t bad enough, Erica took to Twitter to try to explain more. In one tweet, she points out that Below Deck Sailing Yacht isn’t a scripted show. “My hubby chose to act the way he did and wasn’t told to. We take accountability. Onwards and upwards,” she wrote. Girl, did your husband take any accountability? Because all I saw was a group of people enabling an adult-sized child. Make it make sense.

When it comes to the tip situation, Erica didn’t do herself any more favors in her explainer. In another tweet , she decided to “tip/recognize certain people more.” She specifically shouted out Tom Pearson and Kelsie Goglia . Why? Your guess is as good as mine. The real question is whether Erica actually did tip those two more, or if she was just announcing her regret. I cannot with any more of this nonsense. Erica and her gang are entertaining, but Bravo needs to give these yachties a break by not having to deal with her for one charter season.

TELL US – WHAT DO YOU THINK OF ERICA’S APOLOGY? DO YOU THINK SHE AND HER HUSBAND ACTUALLY TAKE ACCOUNTABILITY?

Fans react to returning charter guest Erica on 'Below Deck Sailing Yacht' season 3

Charter guest Erica on Below Deck Sailing Yacht season 3 on Bravo

A familiar face boarded the Parsifal III, much to the crew's dismay and social media's delight: Erica on Below Deck Sailing Yacht has proven to be one of the most notoriously awful charter guests in the franchise's history.

Viewers first got a peek at Erica Rose, an incredibly high-maintenance "attorney and a mother of two," during Sailing Yacht 's second season. Rose is best-known by Below Deck fans for making the stews unpack her numerous suitcases and yelling "Ta-tas for Trump!" while members of her entourage paraded around in Trump 2020 bikinis.

In the March 7 episode of Below Deck Sailing Yacht season 3 , Captain Glenn Shephard diplomatically says Erica, her mother Cindi, and the rest of their group were "very interesting," but chief stew Daisy Kelliher had a very different reaction to learning that the memorable primary would be returning to Parsifal. 

"This is the worst news ever," Daisy exclaimed. "These people are disrespectful, they’re exhausting, they’re emotionally draining. And the biggest thing for me is they’re unpredictable — that’s what’s scary. I just don’t want it."

But surely Erica had to learn the error of her bonkers ways last season? Seemingly no! The drama started before Erica & Co. even stepped foot on deck: their party was removed from a connecting flight at London's Heathrow due to an argument with the flight crew over an omelet. (Yes, you read that correctly.) "Three cops, fully armed" removed them from the plane, explained Erica's husband, Charles "Chuck" Sanders. "I told you they were crazy!" Daisy yells to Captain Glenn. 

The shenanigans don't stop there. Within only a few hours of boarding, the vocal-fry vixen is already sporting a Joe Biden bikini (a real political 180 there) while her husband has a freak-out over watermelon gazpacho. Erica immediately makes her way into the boat's kitchen to ixnay more high-minded menu items like broccoli mousse. "Just because you wear fancy clothes...doesn't mean you have fancy taste buds. They don't know sh*t about food," chef Carlos Marcos Spaziano complains in a confessional. 

The episode ends with Chuck whining that he doesn't have breakfast yet — even though Erica herself chose a beach brunch at 11 am — and, once said breakfast arrives, freaking out further about the presence of tomatoes in his omelet. Who knew an egg dish could cause so much drama?!

Reactions to Erica on 'Below Deck Sailing Yacht'

Hi @BravoTV. Erica and her friends and family aren’t fun to watch. Please don’t bring them back for a third season. They are absolutely horrible and don’t make good tv. Sincerely, A Disgruntled Fan #belowdecksailing #BelowDeckSailingYacht #belowdeck March 8, 2022

A thunderstorm threatens the guests' first dinner, and Natasha only adds to the chaos when she suddenly decides to remove courses from the dinner menu, leaving the guests hungry for more. When Jean-Luc reveals to Dani that he may have given her an STD, things really get turbulent.
