‘Below Deck’s Kelley Is a Cheese Ball on the Boat So His Latest Interview May Surprise You

If you watch Below Deck, you probably have feelings about deckhand, Kelley Johnson. Maybe you think he's hot? (You probably think he's hot.) Maybe you think he's, I dunno, a hard worker? And maybe/definitely probably you think he's a little, um... I don't want to say "douchey," because that's so rude, so how about "cheesy?" Yeah, let's go with cheesy. Do you think Johnson is a little cheesy? At least in the way he handled the whole Jennice situation? (That kiss! Oof!) Well, as it turns out, the Below Deck star is super cool in real life.

Okay, so I've never met Johnson, but I did just read an interview with him, which is basically the same thing, and you guys! He seems really down to earth, and, well, not cheesy at all. Do we have a case of Bravo editing-itis on our hands?

When asked the question: "How are you handling overnight fame and having throngs of fans now that you're a TV star?" Johnson gave a totally non-obnoxious answer. He said:

Pretty cool, right? Johnson doesn't seem cheesy at all! In fact, I kind of want to do a charter with him now. Or maybe, you know, see him at a bar or something less intimate. Either way, he seems way cooler in real life (or in this interview) than he does on the show. Bravo, what have you done?!
