Below Deck Sailing Yacht’s Daisy Kelliher addresses Gary King dating rumors
In an interview with Us Weekly to promote Below Deck Sailing Yacht Season 3, Daisy set the record straight on her relationship with Gary.
Daisy denied the two are more than friends.
“I honestly got such a kick out of how people were jumping to conclusions when we posted a photo together at Disneyland,” she expressed. “So, our phones were blowing up. He did the joke story being, like, ‘Yeah, we’re dating.’ And no, we are just friends. We’re lucky that we are two adults who can share a kiss and still be friends.”
The chief stew admitted that she knows Gary too well to have anything other than a platonic relationship with him.
“Gary’s a magnet. Like, there’s a reason why he gets all these girls. He’s very, very funny. He’s very charming,” Daisy said, referring to his womanizing ways.
She did admit to understanding why women are so easily drawn to Gary. However, Daisy also declared she doesn’t find him attractive.
Daisy calls her relationship with Gary ‘complicated’
The irony of her making out with Gary when she isn’t attracted to him isn’t lost on Daisy. It’s one reason she feels their friendship can be more complicated than other platonic relationships.
“This season, I think why it got complicated is because we were both a bit upset about how we spoke about each other last season,” Daisy explained. “It ended up [with] us, like, flirting and I guess maybe building a bit of sexual tension, which wasn’t our intention. We retreat[ed]. But I think that’s relationships, and that’s the beauty of humans.”
Daisy Kelliher from Below Deck Sailing Yacht has denied she’s dating crew member Gary King. The chief stew has shared they care about each other a lot, but she feels a relationship would be a “stupid move” on their part.
