Below Deck Sailing Yacht got an all-new cast for the second season, with Captain Glenn Shephard joined by a totally different group of yachties on board.
Daisy Kelliher replaced controversial star Jenna MacGillivray in the chief stewardess role in series two, taking charge of the interior crew.
However, while she has definitely already found her footing on the stunning Parsifal III, she isn’t too sure about whether she would jump ship to another franchise in the Below Deck universe.
And, as Captain Glenn is definitely the most chilled of the three – which has seen him become a fan favourite – Daisy joked that she would be too nervous to work under Lee Rosbach and Sandy Yawn.
When asked if she would pop up on the original Below Deck or on Below Deck Med in the future, she told Metro.co.uk: ‘To ask a question, it needs to be something that’s happening for me to think about it.
‘I wouldn’t turn down any of the opportunities, I really enjoyed all of them.

‘I think, [in] regards to Captains… Glenn is definitely the kind of Captain that I work [well] with, so if I was ever to do the other ones, I think I would absolutely… I wouldn’t sleep, I’d be so worried and nervous about working with Lee or Sandy, especially Sandy.
‘I loved it and if the opportunity came up again, yeah, I probably would take it. I’m a sailboat girl but I’d work on a motoryacht, I’m okay with that.’
Captain Sandy has been called out for her leadership skills over her time on Below Deck Med – with many blasting her for ‘micromanaging’ the staff and controversially firing Hannah Ferrier over a drug-related drama in season five.
Viewers also had a love-hate relationship with original Sailing Yacht chief stew Jenna.
Her relationship with chef Adam rubbed her team – and fans watching on from home – up the wrong way, with their drama spilling out from the bedroom and galley kitchen to the wider boat.
She also came under fire for the way she treated the interior crew, with many complaining on social media about the scenes.
Daisy explained that, while she has a contrasting style to her predecessor, she hasn’t done anything different to how she normally is in the role.
‘That wasn’t something I did necessarily because of the way Jenna led her team,’ she insisted. ‘I went in there very much being myself.
‘I’ve been doing this for almost nine years and anyone who’s worked with me, any second stew, would say that I led my team the exact same way I would’ve led my team on any boat. I didn’t go in with a plan or anything like that, I just was myself.
‘I do have a bit more of a different management style to a lot of chief stews, definitely to Jenna. I just want to have fun, I want my crew to have fun. If the crew are having fun, the guests will have fun.’
‘I like to have a strong team, I don’t really like bitchiness or arguing,’ she added. ‘Yes, sometimes it’s called for, yes sometimes my position does require me to be a bit harsher, but the girls were great.
‘I’ve never had a problem with any stew of mine in nine years, so I’m not surprised I didn’t have it this season either.’
A chilled out, fun-loving chief stew? We can’t wait to see more.
Below Deck Sailing Yacht season two is available to stream on hayu, with new episodes dropping every Tuesday.
