Daisy Kelliher and Gary King Dating After ‘Below Deck Sailing Yacht’ Season 3?

Viewers of Below Deck Sailing Yacht Season 2 may have been shocked to see the chief stew and the First Mate share a passionate kiss in the hot tub during the third season of the Below Deck spin-off series, given the occasionally difficult relationship between Daisy Kelliher and Gary King.

Gary sustained his relationship with Daisy throughout the season, despite his flirtations with Ashley Marti, Gabriela Barragan, and Scarlett Bentley. At the Season 3 reunion on June 27th, host Andy Cohen inquired as to the status of the on-screen couples following the completion of production.

Even though Gary and Daisy’s friendship blossomed into something more in the hot tub on board the Parsifal III at the beginning of Season 3, they are not currently dating. “No, we’re not dating. But I did really enjoy how much speculation there was,” Daisy discussed in an exclusive interview with E! News when Season 3 first started in February 2022. “No, Gary and I are just friends.”

She and Gary are “complicated friends,” the Irish stew admitted, but they are not romantically involved. “It’s a complicated friendship. I don’t think we’re more than just friends. We’re very affectionate people and we’re very affectionate towards each other and care a lot about each other and we’ve been through a lot over the last two years,” she spoke about their connection in Season 3. I think the lines between them have blurred a little.

She elaborated by saying that the fact that they care deeply for one another explains why they’ve kissed on occasion. “Our relationship is very platonic. We care about each other and like I said we’re both affectionate people, so affection can sometimes lead to kissing,” she added. “But no, we’re just friends.”

In the same conversation with E! News, Gary restated Daisy’s words about their friendship. It may come as a surprise to longtime watchers, but he also revealed that he and Daisy had a connection when they both joined Parsifal III in Season 2. “I thought she was very cute, I loved her personality and then nothing really matured out of it,” he said about his initial impression of his co-star.

“And I think she kind of knew this, so when we were in the jacuzzi it was just us alone, there was definitely chemistry there. I think we both felt it,” he said. “And then one thing led to another and a few minutes later we were kissing, which for me was amazing, I don’t know what Daisy says about. But it’s a work in progress this relationship and we’re just trying to build it step by step and see where it takes us.”

Gary and Daisy Discussed Their Relationship at the Season 3 Reunion

They made it clear that they are not romantically involved on the June 27 reunion special that aired on Bravo. Gary was a guest in Daisy’s London residence for the taping of the reunion, but that hasn’t changed the fact that the two actors are still just friends.

Daisy said, “We’re good friends,” and then she added that she didn’t regret their hot tub kiss. Towards the end of the program, a viewer asks if Gary will ever be able to accept that he uses humour to mask his true feelings for Daisy.

“Perhaps there could be some truth in that,” the First Mate stated, before Daisy responded, “Whatever.” Even though the co-stars aren’t dating at the moment, they have great chemistry together and are likely to return for the next season. Below Deck Sailing Yacht Season 3 is currently available on Peacock for streaming.
