When Kyle Dixon first came on Below Deck, I found it difficult to understand him and I mean that in the most literal sense since his dialogue was often accompanied by subtitles for clarification, which made things feel even more awkward when he tried to woo his coworker Sierra Storm. Well, that didn’t go well and then Kyle revealed that he actually had a girlfriend named Ashley, who happens to be transgender. And for some insane reason Sierra thought it was a good idea to make derogatory comments about that in front of reality TV cameras.
Damn. That was stupid. Pretty much everyone forgot about Kyle trying to woo Sierra when he already had a boo at home because Sierra’s comments ended up taking center stage. Obviously, this didn’t sit well with Kyle. AT ALL.

Kyle opened up about his issues with Sierra in an interview with RadarOnline.
Kyle admitted, “I saw her a few weeks ago and tried to apologize.” I’m not sure what he’s referring to, but I assume it has something to do with basically forcing Sierra out on a date when they were both seeing other people.
Kyle took a dig at Sierra with this remark: “I see her for who she is and I don’t like her at all. She’s fairly fake – [so my apology] won’t sink in, so no [we won’t be friends].”
Kyle explained why he found Sierra‘s antics to be so offensive: “Sierra said she looked mannish and she only made that comment on the grounds that I’m attracted to transgender women as well.”
Yep, that’s definitely how it came off to me too, so I’m sure Sierra is facing a lot of heat from the viewers on social media. SMH, girl.
Kyle added, “I find that sad because I find transgender women to be women as well.” It’s nice to see someone like Kyle who is so enlightened and open-minded on reality TV. It really does make you overlook the fact that he was trying to date two different women at once and got offended when Sierra revealed that she had a love interest at home, but I’ve digressed. Clearly, I haven’t forgotten Kyle‘s relentless pursuit – IN FRONT OF REALITY TV CAMERAS – to get with Sierra behind poor Ashley‘s back.
So how does Kyle think Sierra‘s comments reflect on her as a person? He declared, “That means she’s very uneducated in life and very insecure. That’s unfair. She was attractive whether or not she was a woman. That’s irrelevant.”
It will be interesting to see how the contentious relationship between Kyle and Sierra progresses as the season goes on. I also wonder if there’s going to be a reunion episode this year. If so, you know this is going to come up.
