The Bravoverse has imploded after a current Below Deck star was spotted on Vanderpump Rules

"Clearly he wants to pursue being on TV"

Dylan Pierre De Villiers is a busy man – not only has he officially joined the Below Deck crew, but he’s also made a debut on Vanderpump Rules.

Yup, some eagle-eyed fans have spotted Dylan hanging out with VPR star Katie Maloney at SUR on season 11 of the popular reality TV show. His inclusion aired just one day after his first Below Deck episode.

Dylan didn’t actually speak in the episode, nor was he introduced, however, his inclusion in the series hasn’t gone down too well with some Below Deck fans, with some accusing the deckie of being an “actor”.

“I feel like the show and some of Bravo is turning faker and faker,” one person commented on Facebook.

“Bravo keeps it in the family. A few shows stats have crossed over to other shows,” another wrote. A third added: “Clearly he wants to pursue being on TV or he wouldn’t have joined BD”.

However, some fans on Facebook pointed out that Dylan probably met the Vanderpump cast at Bravocon, hence why he was at the bar with Katie.

“He had already filmed Below Deck before Bravocon. So I’m sure they all met there,” they wrote.

Another person added: “I think he’s gonna do amazing on Below Deck and probably hangs out with the other Bravo people like everyone else does. He may be there while he’s off from yachting or something. Either way, I’m excited to see how both shows go.”
