Below Deck

Kate Chastain - Below Deck

The Below Deck crew has been living in relative harmony recently.  Rhylee Gerber’s outbursts have dwindled.  Laura Betancourt keeps her ego in check.  And she’s been getting along with Chief Stew Kate Chastain as well as fending off the occasional sexually charged remark from Chef Adrian Martin.  But for a change, the drama has centered around the carter guests.  And this last group of ladies certainly deliver it.

Who better than Kate and Josiah Carter to dish on the likes of Krystal on the Below Deck After Show?  They do have the most access.  So the task of getting the intoxicated trust-fund diva to bed safely fell on Kate and Josiah’s shoulders.  Krystal refused to be moved from the aft deck.  This put Kate and Josiah in a “hostage situation.”

Below Deck - Drunk Primary Krystal

I don’t even know what to say about tonight’s Below Deck except where do they find these people? A sanitarium? A circus? A casting call for the insanely entitled? A meeting of Delusionals Anonymous? Actually I feel like Tyler Rowland is chairing that meeting. And obviously I’m delusional too if I think that’s all I’m going to say about last night’s epic episode!

So we open the episode with drunk guests falling off a moving jet ski at 10 am. The jet ski definitely would’ve failed a field sobriety test, but Captain Lee Rosbach screaming in the guests’ faces certainly knocked the sobriety into them! 

Kate Chastain - Below Deck

Below Deck returns tonight, bringing some insane charter guests, and a deeper glimpse into what will become of the relationships on this show once the charter season ends. Uh-oh!

With one charter left until the end of the season, Tyler Rowland asks Rhylee Gerber out on an official date. Then, he learns that have drastically different expectations for what comes next. 

Laura Betancourt Below Deck

The drama of Below Deck tends to manifest in different areas of the boat as a season progresses.  The interactions of this crew, both good and bad, have migrated from the crew mess, to the swim platform, back to the staff quarters.  On this week’s After Show, the cast dish on their experiences rooming with a member of the opposite sex.

And this season seems to have more co-ed cabins than usual.  Chief Stew Kate Chastain and her bestie Josiah Carter share a room.  Laura Betancourt is fending off unwanted suggestive comments from her roommate Adrian MartinRhylee Gerber’s cabin previously witnessed the breakdown of Caroline Bedol.  Now it’s all about night-vision hookups between herself and Tyler Rowland.

Reality TV Listings - Below Deck Captain Lee

With the crew of Below Deck operating at about the least amount of dysfunction that we’ve seen yet this season. Captain Lee Rosbach devoted more of his blog to relationship and life advice.  So he had less to say to Kate Chastain, Josiah Carter, and Ross Inia this week.  This trio keeps it professional on the boat for sure.

Captain Lee praised Kate for managing her crew so well.  He wrote, “Your interior team seems to be running on all cylinders so kudos to you. Everyone seems to be getting on well and pulling together. I’m loving it.”

Josiah Carter

The true star of last week’s Below Deck was Josiah Carter and the contents of his gold speedo.  It’s really refreshing to learn more about Josiah and watch him overcome some insecurities.  The only other notable moment of the episode was Tyler Rowland mumbling about “skid marks” and his jar of peanut butter. Entertaining, but not article-worthy.

Up to this point, Josiah has kept his prim and proper British butler persona and we haven’t seen much more than that.  But this particular group of charter guests forced Josiah to relive past bullying trauma.  Josiah sat down with Chief Stew Kate Chastain on the Below Deck After Show to reflect on the incident.
