After an entire season of Josiah flying under the radar, it was kinda nice to learn more about him.
Morning Afters on this show are always a shammy of shame. Except if you’re Rhylee and Tyler! I don’t know how anyone who spends like 2 hours a day cleaning and 8 hours a day screaming about how she’s being rejected from manual labor has any energy leftover to be sexing down Tyler, but Rhylee does. She has fought flounder with her barehands so clearly she is superhuman. After 3 solid days of hooking up, Rhylee and Tyler are basically levitating on the after-sex glow as they flirt through their chores.
Tonight the person having the crisis on Below Deck is Josiah Carter. I mean it’s about time he did something besides simmer and sulk behind the scenes, snipe under his breath, and slither about under the protective glare of Kate Chastain! (I kid – I find Josiah hilarious).
Reading Captain Lee Rosbach‘s blog is a weekly reminder that he really doesn’t know what was happening onboard My Seanna during filming. Like the rest of us Below Deck fans, he’s had to keep up with the episodes to view all of the good, the bad, and the ugly behaviors of his crew.
In this week’s blog, Captain Lee reacted to the outbursts of junior deckhand Rhylee Gerber and Third Stew Laura Betancourt. For one suspenseful moment during the last Below Deck episode, it seemed possible that Laura could potentially upstage Rhylee’s insubordination. But Rhylee still holds the title of most disgruntled employee. At least Laura wizened up enough to make nice with her boss, Chief Stew Kate Chastain.
Laura Betancourt seemed to be going down a road many third stews on Below Deckhave traveled. Mix together the inability to properly clean a room on a luxury yacht, a generous helping of ego, and a whole lot of attitude and it could have easily ended with a flight ticket home. Laura seemed very aware of that. After she was called out by Captain Lee Rosbach, that is.
Perhaps it was a realization that despite being on a reality show, My Seanna is still fully functioning yacht in operation. Captain Lee could really terminate her employment. Maybe Laura added a bit of introspection to her morning yoga routine. Whatever the reason, by the end of the week’s episode, Laura finally found common ground with Chief Stew Kate Chastain.
Then, there were some sweet son photos as well. Bachelor alum Sean Lowe hit the beach with his sons Samuel and Isaiah in Hawaii. Also, Dallas Housewife Stephanie Hollman shared a photo with her. Scott Disick posted a photo cuddling with his youngest son Reign.
In other reality star updates, braces are all the rage these days. Kelly Dodd and her ex Michael Dodd took their daughter Jolie to get braces. Yes, they even marked the occasion with a family photo. Which, is actually pretty sweet. 90 Day Fiance alum Anfisa Nava showed off her new braces.
A lot of people forget that Below Deck is more than just a reality TV show. The cast members are real people, just like anyone else. They’re not actors playing characters. With that said, there is a lot of pressure and scrutiny on Caroline Bedol.
She used to be the Third Stew on Below Deck. However, she got fired in the middle of the season after several charters full of drama. Even though she’s not on the show anymore, she’s still very much in the spotlight, at least among the fandom. Now she’s dealing with some very serious drama, especially in comparison to foot injuries and broken champagne flutes.
