From being labeled a “sympathy promotion” to declaring that she didn’t deserve it, fans had many strong feelings about Ashley’s promotion to leader of the stew
Ever since Ashley Marti set foot on Parsifal III, her goal has been to earn the title of “Second Pot”. But when stewardess Daisy Kelliher made Gabriela Barragan the second stew and Ashley made the third stew, Season 3 of Below Deck Sailing Yacht caused chaos.
Ashley did everything in her power to be as difficult as possible, constantly disrespecting and disrespecting Gabriela to the point that she left the show mid-season. With Gabriela out of the way, Ashley felt confident that she would finally get the promotion and land her dream job. Unfortunately, Daisy didn’t feel comfortable giving the promotion as she felt Ashley still had a lot to learn and grow up with. especially when it comes to teamwork. So Daisy made Ashley and Gabriela’s backup stew Scarlett Bentley junior stews. Though angered by the snub, Ashley was more determined than ever to prove herself to Daisy. Amidst all the drama with Gary King, Ashley worked really hard during the final charter of the season and ended up being promoted to lead stew.
During the final episode of the season, Daisy announced to the crew that Ashley was promoted to head of Stew as she showed tremendous growth and improvement in her work. Although the promotion didn’t really mean anything aside from the title change on Ashley’s resume as it was near the end of the charter season, Ashley was still excited about it. She explained in her confessional that the promotion proved to her that she could do anything she put her heart into and felt validated by Daisy.
Unfortunately, while Ashley and the crew were excited about her promotion, fans didn’t share the same sentiment. From being labeled “sympathy promotion” to declaring that she didn’t deserve it, fans had a lot of strong feelings about it. One fan tweeted: “Ashley run stew when there’s no charter. Daisy could have appointed her Mayor of Mallorca and it would have had the same effect #BelowDeckSailing.” Another fan wrote, “Daisy may have sincerely given Ashley the ‘promotion’ on the DAY the last charter ended, so is it’s pointless at this point…not. #BDSY #BelowDeckSailing.” “Girl you have a sympathy promotion. No speech needed #belowdecksailingyacht #bdsy #belowdecksailing,” one fan commented. “Great that Daisy is rewarding Ashely’s toxic behavior with a promotion. #BelowDeckSailing #BelowDeck #BelowDecksailingyacht,” slammed one fan.
Another fan shared: “Promotion to leader of Stew for once doing her job!? #BelowDeckSailingYacht #BDSY #TheBarIsLow #ImNotAngryImJustDisappointedDaisy.” “Did Ashley just have a great moment at the end of this season?! I should feel inspired, but… with everything else she’s brought us this season – meh. #BDSY #BelowDeckSailingYacht #BelowDeckSailing,” commented another fan. “Sorry, but having a good attitude is important. So I don’t think Ashley deserves a promotion.
