  UNLV quarterback Max Gilliam recently had an unexpected star turn, appearing in a multi-episode arc on the Bravo TV reality show "Below Deck." The show, in its eighth season, focuses on the crew of a yacht and the rotating cast of clients who charter the vessel. Gilliam's first appearance aired last month. He was identified in the episode as a "star quarterback at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas." So what is Gilliam, a native of Thousand Oaks, California, who is sharing first-team reps at quarterback at UNLV, doing on a reality series in the Caribbean? The team, which is scheduled to play its final game of the season Saturday at Hawaii, declined to make Gilliam available to discuss it. A UNLV spokesman said coach Marcus Arroyo did not have a comment.

This much we know about the show: Unlike many reality series, charter guests don't get paid for appearances. According to, the guests pay to charter the boats, which cost between $140,000 and $175,000 a week during the show's first two seasons. Also, the guests are expected to provide a generous tip at the end of their voyage. While all indications are that Gilliam was not compensated for his appearance on the show, it would have been allowed under a new NCAA ruling that allows college athletes to benefit from the use of their name, image and likeness in a manner consistent with the collegiate model. - Las Vegas Review Journal
