During season three of Below Deck Sailing Yacht, third stew Ashley Marti became a controversial figure. Many fans called out her behavior on social media, and they were anxious to see the 24-year-old in the hot seat at the reunion.

But as the special aired on Monday, Ashley was nowhere to be seen. Before the episode dropped, the star publicly revealed that she would no longer play the role of Bravo’s “puppet.”

On the season three reunion, castmates reacted to Ashley’s absence. When host Andy Cohen asked if anyone had talked to her recently, the surprising first response was from Tom Pearson.

“Yeah, I spoke to her yesterday. She just said that she doesn’t need this in her life and that she wasn’t interested in taking part. So, I am not surprised,” he said, via Monsters & Critics.

Andy then noticed that Gary King was shaking his head into the camera, so he asked the first officer to share his thoughts.

“Why sign up to do a TV show when you know there’s going to be a reunion about it and then don’t do it?” responded Gary.

Chef Marcos Spaziani seemed to disagree, replying, “Unless you are too busy.”

Daisy Kelliher wasn’t happy about Marcos’ response, so she soon chimed in: “Marcos, we’re all busy, okay? We all have jobs. We all have things to do. But we all knew the reunion happens, so cut the busy bulls**t, okay? I don’t need to hear it again.”

Marcos, it seems, was actually busy, and he exited the virtual chat early so he could finish a cooking job.

Though Ashley was a no-show, the stars addressed an allegation that she crossed the line during her hookup with Gary. During the reunion, Gary stated that she did not cross the line in any manner.

Although he defended Ashley in that regard, Gary expressed that they were not friends, and he defended Gabriela Barragan‘s claims of being mistreated by Ashley.

Daisy and Kelsie Goglia stood up for Ashley regarding her role as the lead stew. They suggested that she worked hard enough to earn the title.

Gabriela didn’t seem pleased with their comments.
