Below Deck

Laura Betancourt Below Deck

Lord – this is the craziest season of Below Deck ever! It is literally Wham, Bam, Thank you ma’am, next drama! Laura Betancourt and Kate Chastain went from screaming at each other to peaceably getting along as co-workers. In contrast, Laura and Ashton Pineaar transitioned from friends with benefits to, well, I don’t know what. In less than one episode!

Laura is “sore-ry, not sore-ry” that she told Kate to check herself over some towels not being hung up. This is the myopic world of luxury yachting where the placement of a pond frond can make the difference between a $17,000 tip and a $20,000 tip. Basically what I’m saying is that all the escalated drama over towels and toilet paper matters! The little things become the big things, you guys. And Kate’s refusal to see Laura as the top-notch CHIEF STEW wannabe she is, is a big thing, guys. 

Kate Chastain Below Deck

It’s been so long since we’ve had an episode of Below Deck. I seriously forgot who these people even are. Well, not really.  I think I’ve intentionally blocked Laura Betancourt from my mind, however.

When we left off, before the Christmas holiday, Laura was fighting with Kate Chastain over turndowns. Tonight we see the conclusion of that argument, and the fallout naturally! After Laura told Kate to check herself, Kate checkmated Laura by going directly to Captain Lee Rosbach to report her insubordination.

So much reality TV, so little time. We are thankful for DVR since there are a lot of time conflicts with some reality TV great shows. Check out our reality TV listings of shows to watch this week!

Below-Deck

Unfortunately, Below Deckstar Ross Inia was arrested in West Palm Beach, Florida on Saturday.  The New Zealand native picked up were multiple charges, but disorderly intoxication seemed to be the catalyst for the rest.  The Season 6 Bosun was partying at a local bar with Joao Franco, a cast member on Below Deck Mediterranean.  As per usual, the two shared videos of their night out on Instagram.  Soon after Ross’s arrest, they deleted the posts.

Ross was in an altercation with two other men when law enforcement arrived to break up the fight. Then, Ross allegedly attacked the police officer and issued verbal threats.

Laura Betancourt

Canadian import Laura Betancourt has been having trouble settling into her Third Stew role on Below Deck.  She seemed unable to properly clean the guest cabins on multiple occasions. Then, she quelled her defensive feelings against Kate Chastain by canoodling with Ashton Pienaar.

Tyler Rowland

It’s a tale of two new crew members on Below DeckLaura Betancourt has been underperforming and getting on her boss Kate Chastain’s last nerve.

The other newbie, Tyler Rowland, has fit in with the deck team perfectly.  He’s got Bosun Ross Inia and even Captain Lee Rosbach singing his praises.

Reality TV Listings - Below Deck Captain Lee

It’s that time of the week again!  The great anticipation of watching the next episode of Below Deck is upon us!  And we have the opportunity to rehash all the recent crew drama thanks to Captain Lee Rosbach and his insightful blogs.

It seems like Captain Lee is trying to redeem himself for skipping over Josiah Carter last week.  He’s up first this time.  And though Josiah did for once, stir up a bit of drama involving Third Stew Laura Betancourt, he also nipped any resentment in the bud by owning his faults.

Laura Betancourt

On last night’s Below Deck things got really really, REALLY deep. Like penetrating each other in the bunk beds deep and delving into people’s inner psychological matter deep. All the shenanigans make it hard to remember that just 3 days earlier Ashton Pienaar nearly died. He is still wearing the ankle brace to prove it!

With just 36 hours before the new charter arrives the crew heads out for a much-needed break from the close confines of My Stupida. Ashton is especially ready to let loose and be grateful for this amazing life he still gets to lead. Ashton and Ross Inia have evolved from crewmates to soulmates. They have a sweet moment where they discuss survival and friendship. The most detrimental thing they now have to face is Rhylee Gerber!
