Below Deck - Josiah Carter Gold Speedo

On last night’s Below Deck Josiah Carter‘s childhood insecurities were triggered by demanding and flamboyant guests, and Rhylee Gerber and Tyler Rowland took their relationship next level!

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.

Josiah Carter Below Deck

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).

After a crazy crew night out Tyler Rowland and Rhylee Gerber went through the five stages of lust, dating, fighting, breaking up, and rekindling. In contrast, Ashton Pienaar and Laura Betancourt have found themselves officially flung out

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.

Rhylee Gerber Below Deck

The Below Deck crew was way overdue for a night out.  There was definitely some anticipation between My Seanna’s lovebirds for what the evening had in store.  On the Below Deck After Show, Ashton Pienaar, Laura Betancourt, Rhylee Gerber, and Tyler Rowland shared their experiences.

At first, Laura was excited to go out with Ashton.  The night was young and full of promise.  Then Adrian Martin made a sneaky comment about Ashton’s nightlife antics.

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.

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!
