Below Deck Adventure shone a spotlight on the crew onboard a charter yacht as viewers got to see the true hardships of pleasing wealthy thrill seekers. Now crew member Faye Clarke exclusively tells Express.co.uk secrets about meeting the needs of demanding guests.
The premiere of Below Deck Adventure introduced Bravo fans to an entirely new crew onboard the Mercury.
Unlike the other shows in the Below Deck franchise, the latest spin-off took place in the Norgeiwan Fjords, miles away from the sunny seas fans are used to.
As well as getting to know their new team, the crew of yachties also had to provide a high standard of service for the guests.
But this didn’t come without difficulty as the team had to deal with overbearing, needy and demanding guests.

Speaking to Express.co.uk, chief stew Faye Clarke opened up about the hardships she faced.
She stated: “There was quite a few challenges, the space on the boat was quite small. I didn’t have a bath.
“My pantry was really small, and obviously, the guests were very, in a nice way, demanding.
“I remember I counted I did 112 cocktails in one day on my own, and they were dirty martinis with olives stuffed with blue cheese.”
Faye explained: “So I’m trying to stuff these tiny olives with blue cheese, let alone all the other things that I was trying to do and some people don’t realise things like that.
“All the table decor and things like that, I want it to be as extravagant and as memorable as possible.
“But people don’t think about all that table decor needs putting away like two o’clock in the morning, the pantry needs cleaning at two o’clock in the morning ready for the next day.”
She continued: “Guests spent 90 per cent of their time inside, on a normal boat people are out swimming on the beach sitting outside but our guests were inside all the time.

“They needed entertaining, they wanted to talk to me and find out about my background when I’ve got the chef in the background asking me ‘what am I doing? How long am I going to be?’”
The chief stew remarked: “It was just constantly something, but that’s who I am.
“That’s the kind of life I love, I like to be stressed, I like to be busy, I like to be put under pressure and I like to perform.”
“So I think I was definitely the right girl for the job for that one,” Faye concluded.
Throughout season one, the team catered for six charters with groups of up to seven people.
The groups included a divorce party, an engagement celebration and Real Housewive of Salt Lake City star Heather Gay with her friends.
While the crew catered to Shelby and Jodie Turner’s group, they were mortified to discover a hair in their food on two occasions in the same meal night.
Although this caused a stir among the yachties, the group were generous and gave a tip of $16,165, which meant each crew member made $1,347.
Below Deck Adventure is available to stream on Bravo in the USA and on Hayu in the UK.
