Kyle Stillie appears to be single and currently living in Montana following his time aboard the St. David.

At the beginning of Below Deck Season 11, Barbie found herself caught in a little love triangle between Kyle and bosun Jared Woodin. However, she quickly realized that she and Kyle were more compatible. Not to mention that Jared got fired mid-season.

On Reddit, a user pointed out that whatever did go on between Barbie and Kyle during Below Deck Season 11 is believed to be over, as Kyle was found on the dating app Bumble in Montana.

For those not in the know, Kyle, who was born and raised in Scotland, learned a few years ago that he and his mom, Paula Stillie, had significant indigenous American DNA. In fact, their family's story was featured on a 2022 episode of TLC's Long Lost Family: What Happened Next.

Kyle's mom was adopted, and growing up in Scotland, she didn't understand why she had such a different skin color than her adoptive parents if she was also white. As she learned years later, her father was an American man called Larry Smith

Back in the day, Larry traveled to England with the Navy, where he met Paula's mom, a white British woman. They had Paula and she was put up for adoption.

Larry passed away in 1982, but the show was able to locate Larry's younger brother, Joe, who lives in Montana with the rest of the family.

  • Kyle said on Below Deck Season 11 that he had hopes of reuniting with his American family in Montana for a few years, and his Bumble dating profile seems to prove that. Kyle's mom and dad currently reside in Scotland.
