Ashton Pienaar of Below Deck showed that, despite the fallout of the current season, he is profitable in yacht building.
A Watch What Happens Live After Show caller asked if Pienaar was nervous about finding work in the yachting industry after he was scolded for misogynistic behavior not only by the women on the boat but also by Captain Lee Rosbach. Pienaar struck out at main stew Kate Chastain in a drunken rage, plus he tried to kiss her more than once. This was even after Chastain told him to hold back.
Pienaar was also angry that Rosbach hired mid-season stallion Rhylee Gerber. He turned the whole breeding team against Gerber and then tried to convince her that she was the real problem. Rosbach claimed that he would never work with Pienaar again and therefore the viewers wonder if he is hunting poison.
‘Below Deck’: He still works in yachting
Pienaar quickly answered the caller’s question and told her that he works for a private yacht. “I am currently working for a family, a large family on a yacht, who have watched the season and who know me personally, and they have supported me this time,” he said.
Host Andy Cohen wonders if there is anything the viewers don’t know about the hunting world. “You see 40 minutes a week, of hours and hours of things filmed for the show,” explains Pienaar. “I think the biggest thing with the yachting industry is just respect and hierarchy. And this season has been really shaped around me by having problems with the most junior person on the boat.”
Pienaar shared one picture of “the office” this summer. “Our summer has officially begun,” he wrote along with a photo that’s in the wheelhouse. He also shared a photo that looks like he’s driving the yacht. “Cruising in the weekend with @captainchaos.”
He also posted a commentary that cryptically hinted at what happened during the filming. Pienaar shared a selfishness in June where he seemed to realize that the season would blow up in his face. “It always seems to go better, right? Today I let go of the results that I think I want or need so much in my life and I surrender to what is and what will be. I choose joy, peace, and understanding.
Rhylee Gerber agrees he works in yachting, but not for a family
When Pienaar told where he worked at the After Show, Gerber offered what she knew about his job. “For the record, ashton’s yacht he’s ‘working on’ right now is his ‘girlfriend/sugar mommy’s’ he’s ‘trying so hard to get his d**k sucked elsewhere’. I really hope she loses the blinkers for her, like the others he’s used have come to realize,” she tweets along with a clip from WWHL.
Chastain replied, “bahahahhhaha YES RHYLEE. he’s basically a pool boy with a charade.” Fans saw this as a total drop, especially after Constable Gerber tried to drag on WWHL. “That’s right, girl, set that garbage can on fire and walk away!” one person reacted.
