Below Deck Med’s Kyle Viljoen gushes over his friendships

As Season 7 of Below Deck Mediterranean kicked off, Kyle used Instagram to gush over the women he’s working with on the show.

Two photos made up his IG post. The first one featured Kyle with Natasha, Natalya Scudder, and Raygan Tyler, while the second one featured just the interior crew.
