FBS QB apologizes after eating sushi off a nude model during a reality show appearance
“Below Deck” is a popular reality TV show, depicting crew members aboard a super yacht.
During this current season, which was shot back in early 2020, UNLV QB Max Gilliam made an appearance.
In his appearance, Gilliam was seen eating sushi off of a naked model. On Monday, he tweeted out an apology for his judgement and the position it puts the UNLV program in:
Gilliam has appeared in 5 games this season for the Rebels, throwing for 599 yards, 4 touchdowns and 3 interceptions. He also has 195 rushing yards and 2 touchdowns.
First-year head coach Marcus Arroyo issued a statement on the incident, too:
Max Gilliam was on a reality TV show called Below Deck.
Gilliam has apologized and Marcus Arroyo said players have to recognize they represent UNLV when in public. Both their statements are below.

It doesn’t seem Gilliam broke any NCAA rules during the appearance, and no laws appear to be broken, either. What a weird incident.
