Behind The Velvet Rope with David Yontef: Rhylee Gerber (Below Deck):

Rhylee Gerber, from Below Deck, steps Behind The Rope. With the new Season of Below Deck underway, checking in from her van during her cross country tour, Rhylee is here to tell it all. Born and raised in Alaska Rhylee grew up working on fishing boats, not luxury yachts her whole life. That changed when one day Bravo came knocking and she ended up on Seasons 6 and 7 of Below Deck. Although she had no experience working on yachts, Rhylee taught herself what she needed to know during filming the hit reality show. Rhylee discusses casting, filming, editing and what is was like watching herself back on TV every week. Rhylee discusses her past and current relationship with Bravo Legend Kate Chastain and what it was like to work with her. In truly Rhylee fashion of never holding back, we discuss past cast mates Ashton Pienaar, Simone Mashile, Tanner Sterback, Brian de Saint Perf, Courtney Skippon, Chef Kevin Dobson and last, but certainly not least, Tyler Rowland. On a more serious note, we discuss the challenges women still face in the yachting industry and what needs to be done to change that. We also discusses the reputation Below Deck and Below Deck Med have in the yachting industry and what is it like to apply for a job in the real world having be on the Bravo TV show. Being a non apologetic hunter and fisher, Rhylee discusses the on line bullying she receives as a result of it and how she deals with it. Finally, we answer one of life’s most pressing questions. Captain Lee or Captain Sandy? Tune in now for this no holds bar sit down with Rhylee Gerber
