Never say never? Gary King Daisy KelliherTheir relationship was not easy when they met in Below Deck Sailing Yacht — but the twosome continue to fuel dating speculation since becoming friends.
In 2021, Bravo’s season 2 premiered the first officer and chief stew to viewers. Gary and Daisy had many ups, downs and struggles when it came time to work together in their respective departments.
While appearing on the season 2 reunion in June 2021, the Ireland native admitted that she wasn’t sure if she would work with Gary again in the future. “You clearly also hated me and thought that I was a giant bitch,” she said, referring to the comments her coworker made during his confessional interviews.
Gary, for his part, clarified, “I may have said you were acting bitchy, I never said you’re a bitch.”
When they reunited in season 3, sparks flew between Gary & Daisy. They almost swam together during a crew outing.
Ahead of the show’s return, Daisy joked that she didn’t remember the moment until she watched it back. “I feel like that was my alternate personality. We need to name her, but that definitely wasn’t me,” she said via Instagram in January 2022. “I’m really enjoying how many people’s minds are blown [about Gary]. No one’s mind was more blown than mine the next day. I have no recollection of that kiss.”
The Bravo personality added: “What can I say, I’m not picky when it comes to making out with people. I’ll pretty much make out with anyone.”
Gary then took to social media one month later to make fun of the romance rumors surrounding him and Daisy. “Hey guys, just because many of you are asking, Daisy and I are dating,” he said in an Instagram video in February 2022, during their joint trip to Disneyland in California. The twosome had a good laugh at his comment, and continued to document their adventures together.
Daisy also addressed online support for Gary that month. “I honestly got such a kick out of how people were jumping to conclusions when we posted a photo together at Disneyland,” she exclusively told Us Weekly. “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.”
