Below Deck Mediterranean star Jessica More has sounded off on Below Deck charter guest Charley Walters claims producers told him to act over the top and demanding to the crew.
Charley and friends kicked off Season 8 of Below Deck, and their appearance has fans expressing dislike for the group.
After the social media backlash, Charley revealed that producers told him to behave that way because it makes a good show.
There has been a lot of response to Charley’s accusations, including Captain Lee Rosbach and chef Rachel Hargrove. They have different opinions on the hot topic.
What did Jess say about Charley and his claims?
The Below Deck Med alum is no stranger to speaking her mind. Fans watched Jess openly share her opinion throughout Season 5 of the Bravo show.
Jess replied to an Instagram post from the fan account @belowdeckaboveaverage after they revealed Charley blaming his behavior on producers.
“I don’t agree with this. Shows don’t need to be about tacky, rude drama. So many folks actually want to see heartfelt good drama that is being deprived on our TVs…” Jess wrote in the comments section of the post.
It didn’t take long for fans to respond to Jessica’s reply. While many agreed with the Bravo personality, several called her out since she was full of rude drama on her season.
Below Deck Season 6 third stew Caroline Bedol also got in on the action. She blasted Charley for his actions, and understanding of what behavior is considered demanding.
