Gabriela Barragan has a message for Below Deck Sailing Yacht fans as the drama with Ashley Marti amps up on-screen.
The interior crew tension has been one hot topic on Season 3 of the sailing show. Daisy Kelliher has revealed the friction with Ashley and Gabriela was challenging for her. The chief stew also spilled Gabriela and Ashley were more concerned with rank than doing their jobs.
Since Gabriela was given the second stew title, Ashley has been vocal that she disagrees with it. They have had a couple of spats or small blow-ups, but Ashley recently shared that things will get a lot worse between them.

Twitter has been buzzing with support for Gabriela as each episode reveals the tension between her and Ashley continues to get worse.
One user called Ashley a “brat” and reminded the third stew that Gabriela is her boss.
Another talked about Ashley spiraling over a to-do list and a different one called Gabriela “unproblematic.”
There’s a lot of support for Gabriela, and Twitter wants Daisy to do something about the situation. One Twitter user hopes Daisy realizes what’s going on and another shared the difference between Ashley and Gabriela.
Only a handful of episodes of Below Deck Sailing Yacht Season 3 have aired. That means the interior crew drama with Gabriela Barragan and Ashley Marti has only just begun.
It’s going to be a roller coaster ride of a season for these two stews. Gabriela wants fans to know she appreciates all the kind words amid the negativity playing out on-screen.
