Below Deck Sailing Yacht cast

Below Deck Sailing Yacht is the unrefined spinoff of its highly successful counterpart, Below Deck.  Yes, the boat is beautiful, and yes any of us plebs would be lucky to charter it.  But it’s hardly the same luxury experience that we’ve seen previously.  It would interest a sailing enthusiast, and that’s certainly a reason to tune in.

The views are breathtaking, but the parties and excursions have been a little underwhelming.  Crew drama is really what keeps us coming back for more.  And this bunch is bickering and imploding.  Madison Stalker and Parker McCown are mouthing off to their superiors which gives Chief Stew Jenna MacGillivray lots of fodder to then snark over with Chef Adam Glick.  Tensions are building for sure, and will escalate into larger conflicts.

Bravo released the mid-season trailer and it’s more of business as usual within the crew.  Madison seems to be imploding further.  Clearly, Parker isn’t taking her sexual advances seriously because she is filmed shouting, “I’m done with being on a boat where everyone’s couple, couple, couple.”

Jenna is still not happy with Madison’s work and snarks, “I honestly feel like I’ve been carrying you and Georgia [Grobler] and it fucking sucks.”  Madison responded in a post-production interview saying, “I get it, you want to suck Adam’s dick.  But it’s also like, be professional.”

Of course, Adam picked up on Madison’s disdain of the sexual innuendo that goes on his galley.  His impression of Madison was largely shaped by Jenna’s critiques of her.  But his opinion of her doesn’t improve.  Adam’s is filmed shouting, “can you go a day without creating some kind of drama?”

Adam doesn’t even have a positive opinion of Jenna by the end of the season.  They are filmed breaking up and Adam decides that, “it’s over.  I’m going to hop in my van and drive away.” Umm, was there anything there to begin with?  Adam’s mind has been proverbially hopping into his van since he set foot on board.   Poor Jenna is left crying and declaring herself, “definitely naive.”

Maybe there will be some romance on board as the bickering, expired relationship of Paget Berry and Ciara Duggan takes an unexpected turn.  Ciara seems to be enticing Georgia for a threesome.  Who knows if that will actually go down.

But in a different scene, Georgia confesses some deeper feelings to Paget.  She said, “you mean a lot more to me than I think you realize.”  Oh, the intrigue!

Finally, there is the discovery of cocaine on the boat.  This happened once in Below Deck history and Captain Lee Rosbach simply unloaded the guests at the nearest port.  This time, it may not be a charter guest.  The footage is spliced to show a lineup of crew members as Captain Glenn Shephard says, “I would be very surprised if somebody flew to Corfu with cocaine.”

Captain Glenn also indicates that he is considering firing a crew member.  Likely candidates are Parker or Madison.
