Abbi Murphy is this Below Deck’s season token bohemian spirit that just wants to sail. She is accustomed to spending her time on the water metaphorically drifting from port to port and making love her with sexy boyfriend/captain. Wearing multiple uniforms and synchronizing fender drops doesn’t suit this fair siren. Neither does showing up on time and working through a hangover.
If there is any symbolism to be taken from what we’ve seen so far, it’s that Abbi and her hair won’t be tied down. We can all see where this will lead, but on the off-chance that Abbi does decide to conform to the yachting world, Captain Lee Rosbach offered his opinion and words of advice on his blog this week.
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.
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!
On last night’s Below Deck there was everlasting love, shitty tantrums, and Abbi Murphy‘s hair blowing in everyone’s faces. Most notably Ashton Pienaar‘s!
So we open on the toilet, where apparently chef Kevin Dobson dreams up all his best dishes. To contrast with footage of Kevin counseling himself through explosive diarrhea, chocolate pudding, and the selection of “very slower” progress anti-poop medication, we also see proof that Kevin is a very thorough hand washer. So diphtheria be damned! Good thing too, because some ‘I Do’ popping is the plan for the evening, and if there’s one dinner you can’t fuck up, it’s the one which will set the tone for the primary charter guest’s marriage.
As Below Deck glides into its second episode of season 7, everything seems to be going swimmingly: the charter guests are happy, the food is good, and the crew is all getting along well. We know from the previews this doesn’t last long, but for now it’s all coming up roses — and rings!
That’s right, I think we’re getting our first ever Below Deck proposal this season when the primary enlists Kate Chastain‘s help to pull off the ultimate surprise.
Isn’t it great to have Below Deck back? How beautiful is the exotic Thailand setting? I think this might be the most stunning place Below Deck has been yet. Back for more charter merriment on the high seas are Captain Lee Rosbach, prickly chief stew Kate Chastain and last year’s favorite deckhand, now promoted to bosun, Ashton Piennar.
The yacht drama has already started with a nauseatingly sick on the first charter chef Kevin Dobson. Handful deckhand Abbi Murphy and complaining third stew Courtney Skippon are sure to make for an eventful season. Such crew members make you wonder, what would Kate do if she could actually pick her own crew? Maybe from some other Bravo franchises?
