Captain Lee Rosbach’s blog is back y’all! Below Deck fans can rejoice because this blog is so much better than the usual dose of Captain Lee snark. The usual is one or two zingers per episode, now we have Captain Lee doing a rundown of each crew member’s performance.
Episode Three was all about Chef Kevin Dobson. Inexplicably, Kevin decided to be hostile to both Simone Mashile and Chief Stew Kate Chastain. He thought that rudely micro-managing another department was a good way to conduct himself. Naturally, Captain Lee had something to say about it.
Oh sheesh, last night’s Below Deck was A. MESS. From charter guest Brandy, a literal sea sponge soaked in champagne and leeching everywhere, to Kevin Dobson‘s inability to count, to Abbi Murphy‘s drunken disarray… I don’t know what is in the water over in Thailand, but remind me never to drink it!
So Helen + ‘friends’ are on a beach picnic, slurping down cocktails and fish sandwhiches, taking selfies, and Brandy is so trashed she’s speaking in tongues and seeing apparitions in the pattern of her beach towels. Too bad she didn’t have an epiphany about the evils of gluttony, like Helen advised.
Tonight Below Deck meets Survivor when a challenging (re: drunk) charter guest causes extreme chaos and issues arise down below with a power struggle for control of service! Who will win: Kate Chastain or chef Kevin Dobson?!
After extremely drunk (Let’s be honest that woman was on something!) charter guest Brandy is evacuated back to the boat during a beach picnic she continues to stress out the crew with wasted antics that have Captain Lee Rosbach deciding to call for medical attention.
Has there ever been a humble chef in Below Deck history? At the moment, I cannot think of one. Some of them have at least waited a few episodes before unleashing their crazy and getting demanding.
Chef Kevin Dobson has been very critical of the interior crew, with a list of demands for Kate Chastain and her team. However, it’s not like he’s been Mr. Perfect himself. During the last episode, he yelled at Simone Mashile for no reason. He also failed to order seafood for a “seafood extravaganza”-themed dinner. Seriously, he didn’t order one seafood item. Instead, he just expected the inebriated guests to return to the boat with success from their fishing trip. Now, Captain Lee Rosbach is sounding off on the new Below Deck chef.
Oh my Below Deck where on earth do you find these people? I think it’s safe to say that Helen Hoey‘s friend Brandy is not just sipping on the al-al-al-alcohol, but adding in a little something extra. So that’s where chef Kevin Dobson‘s “extra” went!
Helen and Richard are back, pretending to be foodies who are rich and fabulous. They have brought with them a literal motley crew of cougars. Actually, I think these women were Motley Crue groupies back in the 80s. (Psssst… I think even Tommy Lee quit partying… Maybe?)
On tonight’s Below Deck last year’s charter guests Helen and Richard resurrect to work their black magic upon Thailand, but literally one of their friends is the unliving embodiment of a return from the dead gone wrong!
Charter 2 is starting out with plenty of drama with a wild group of charter guests who loooove to drink. Kate Chastain knows and loves the primaries but their friends… oh my! One gets so frisky Captain Lee Rosbach may have a sexual harassment suit on his hands. Do not let Lee’s wife Mary Anne see this episode!
Here’s a name you haven’t heard in a minute:Malia White. She joined Below Deck Mediterranean as the resident femme fatale and deckhand on Season 2. You might recall she had a thing going on with the yacht’s chef, Adam Glick. Unfortunately for Adam, Malia also had eyes for her bosun, Wes Walton. Captain Sandy Yawn wound up promoting Malia during the charter season. Many people wondered if it had to do with her superior performance as a deckhand or her superior performance at flirting with her boss.
Listen, a girl can’t help it if she is the object of men’s affection. But a girl can help it if she’s leading several people on at once. Wes and Malia eventually parted as friends, but onion-loving Adam probably still uses her photo as his dartboard’s bullseye. She eventually apologized for her behavior surrounding the love triangle and has since moved on to bigger and better things. One of those things is a steady relationship not involving Wes or Adam. Could another be our first female bosun in the Below Deck franchise? The streets are saying it could happen.
We are already a few weeks into the Below Deck season and are starting to get a read on the new crew. It appears that at least a few of the crew members will be stirring up high seas drama. Chef Kevin Dobson has already raised the ire of chief stew Kate Chastain by calling her out for poor service at the first crew meeting. No good can come of that! Plus, Kevin has already stirred up a full season of drama in just two episodes with his intestinal issues. Pity the poor charter guests who are now watching the show knowing that he prepared their food!
Crabby third stew Courtney Skippon whines more than any crew member I have ever seen. What’s so bad about being on a yacht making great money in beautiful Thailand? It’s not like you are serving time in a Russian prison, Courtney! You have to wonder what it would be like to be Captain Lee Rosbach and have to deal with some of these characters. What would happen if he could pick his own dream crew for Below Deck?
