Kyle seems to take pride in his wild behavior – he ate a jellyfish on ‘Below Deck Adventure’

Dickard’s arrest for running on the field likely doesn’t come as a huge surprise to fans. He talked about the “craziest way” he’s done shots after crafting a homemade squeegee shotski. “Probably doing the booty chug,” he said in a confessional. “Where you start it from the top of the girl’s back and it’s going straight into your mouth. There’s a bikini there to protect it … so it’s OK.”

He also grabbed a jellyfish with his bare hands during the first Below Deck Adventure charter. He pulled the small jellyfish out of the water, which is when bosun Lewis Lupton dared him to eat it. Clearly, up for a dare, he did it, much to Lupton’s dismay.

“I was joking,” Lupton said in a confessional. “Who would eat a jellyfish?”

“It wasn’t bad, just salty,” Dickard said.

Why was Kyle fired from ‘Below Deck Adventure’?

Dickard essentially resigned from Below Deck Adventure, but only because he was given a choice. He forcibly kissed stew Kasie Faddah. And later told deckhand and cabinmate, Nathan Morley, he was going to hit his “pretty face” when Morley complained that Dickard didn’t flush the toilet after he used it.

Faddah and Morley both spoke to Captain Kerry Titheradge about their encounters with Dickard, sharing that they felt uncomfortable but neither crew member suggested that Titheradge fire him. But Titheradge felt that Dickard went too far.

“Threats of violence is an instant dismissal,” Titheradge said in a confessional. “That’s on your record and if someone asks if you were terminated, I’m gonna tell them why. And that would severely affect your opportunity to get another job.” Lupton knew that Dickard’s behavior toward other crew members was problematic, but Dickard was the strongest crew member he had.

“I’m a little bit upset by it; I was going to save him — you know, he is the most experienced and I would have liked him to become lead deckhand,” Lupton said about Dickard. “I mentioned it to him that if could behave more professionally — it is his to lose.”
