Why are so many people unhappy on Below Deck Mediterranean? From the crew to the guests – why must all these interlopers to the bucolic scenery, ancient towns, and stunning blue water bring their cloudy, crusty, rosè tears, tequila tantrums, and salty swimsuit bottom dramas?
WHO LOOKS FOR REASONS TO COMPLAIN AMID ALL THAT BEAUTY? Well OK, I could see being unhappy with Joao Franco, but I can’t see willingly exposing yourself to his predatory nonsense ergo looking for reasons to be unhappy with him (I’m looking at you, Brooke Laughton and Kasey Cohen!).
As for everyone else being so sad – maybe it’s the realization that they pale miserably in comparison to everything the Mediterranean has to offer, which brings out the worst in these people. They are all the gumballs gunking up the deep blue sea.
This season of Below Deck Mediterranean has been one of my favorites in the franchise and viewers agree. The show is pulling in higher viewer numbers than the Real Housewives series. The combination of juicy crew drama and truly awful charter guests make this show Must See TV! And lucky us, it’s Tuesday again!
The love triangle between Brooke, Kasey, and Joao rages on tonight! Joao sends mixed signals to both of his co-workers and they finally confront him. This guy is going to wind up alone if he doesn’t make a decision soon.
The episode opens with the crew out on the town. Brooke Laughton is sulking on a dirty street corner like the naughty school girl she swears she’s not and gives Adam Glick some word salad about how much she likes him. When Adam doesn’t reciprocate she bursts into tears. I would’ve sworn Adam was the type who couldn’t resist a damsel in distress – turns out I was wrong! He gently explains to Brooke that she’s just drunk, lonely, and emotional. (Does anyone else suspect producers put her up to this to try and tempt Adam back into Sandy’s trap?!)
Tonight we’ll see Hannah Ferrier’s ongoing struggle with her under-performing Third Stew, Kasey Cohen. Things comes to a head when she learns Kasey lied on her resume. Kasey claims she had a friend “polish” her resume and she didn’t look it over before submitting it. She also comes clean about her “barista” training, which involved pushing a button on a coffee machine, not like “formal Starbucks” type training. I have to wonder – why didn’t this come out during her interviews? Those would’ve been important things to cover, no?
Last night’s Below Deck Mediterranean was a Las Vegas all you can eat buffet from guests who treated Adam Glick like a short-order cook instead of a professionally trained chef! (Have I ever felt bad for Adam before? Did he deserve it after last season’s blatant disregard of guests’ wants?)
Anyway, the whole thing made me glad my puny microwave is the only automatic chef in my house!
I get it. These people, led by “Honey“ (the name of a stripper whose act is ‘baby spice’), are hungry and they are hungry in a very specific way, like for TOASTED buns and French fries with their steak dinner (that’s pomme frittes to you, mister!), and I understand they become hangry if their food isn’t perfecto, but they needed to drop anchor on their overly-entitled gullets.
