Below Deck cast member Tanner Sterback seemed to have zero interest in Simone Mashile when he found out she had a crush on him. His exact response was a long pause followed by “Ah, that’s dangerous.” However, he had no chance with Kate Chastain, so he moved on to his next option. After many drinks, cigarettes, and a puke session, Tanner decided to give Simone a chance and he eloquently told her, “You wanna sit down and then I’ll hook up with you?” And at that moment, it was on.
They made out at the bar, “cuddled” in a bunk bed on the Valor. And, the next day, Tanner told everyone he “went down on Simone last night.” So is that all that happened between the yachties?
Right from the beginning of this Below Deck season, Tanner Sterback had the hots for Kate Chastain. She was not at-all-interested in him, but Simone Mashile was crushing on him. Hard. During Monday’s episode, Tanner followed his session of binge drinking and chain-smoking with a puke and rally and a make-out session with Simone. This led to some bunk bed sleepovers.
Spoiler alert: Tanner and Simone’s relationship did not stand the test of time, despite its
gross romantic start.
Below Deck viewers have seen Simone Mashile struggle to cut fruit, open a wine bottle, make two-ingredient drinks, and carry plates. Yet, somehow, she secured the role of Second Stew. She has been miffed with Kate Chastain for not putting her on service as often as she’s been in the laundry room. However, Simone seems to have zero service skills. Even one of the (obnoxiously drunk) charter guests from last night’s episode carried out plates better than Simone ever has. This set Simone off. As sad as it was to see her crying in her room, I cannot help siding with Kate. Courtney Skippon is a way more competent stew than Simone is. Of course, she is getting more service opportunities.
Kate has been so patient and so nice to Simone all season, even though Simone seems to lack
all most of the skills needed for this job. Still, no one could blame her for putting Simone in her place when Simone “confronted” her during last night’s episode. Yes, I know this show is edited and it is possible that all of the footage of Simone coming through as stewardess is on the cutting room floor. However, that just doesn’t seem likely.
I’m still trying to get past Tanner Sterback’s puke and rally before he made out with Simone Mashile during last night’s episode of Below Deck . Simone couldn’t have been more happy that her crush reciprocated her feelings, so I guess that’s all that matters. Although I can’t help being curious about she thinks after seeing the episode- the puke part and the moment Tanner told the deck crew that he “went down on Simone last night.”
Interestingly enough, Simone isn’t the only Below Deck cast member Tanner has hooked up with. No, he did not get with his “cougar” crush Kate Chastain… not that I know of, at least. However, he did get with Below Deck Mediterranean star Aesha Scott.
Alexis Bellino seemed to largely disappear after leaving the Real Housewives of Orange County after four seasons in 2013. Sure, she posted a lot on social media, but we didn’t hear much about her until her divorce from Jim Bellino last year. Since then, Alexis has been popping up on the semi-regular. Earlier this year, she made some waves when she posted a few Instagram pics with her new man, Andy Bohn. And Alexis was soon was faced with Andy’s estranged wife making a public plea for privacy for her family due to Alexis flaunting her new relationship on social media.
Alexis is currently starring on Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars-Family Edition with her mother and is also making an upcoming appearance on Below Deck. Something tells me Alexis won’t be as sweet as Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Cynthia Bailey was when she was on the show! Alexis also appeared on RHOC this season due to her friendship with Emily Simpson. Apparently, all this attention wasn’t enough, as Alexis is now in a bit of a social media kerfuffle over comments she made about her household help on Instagram.
So much déclassé about last night’s Below Deck. Also so many jelly fish. Everywhere. Simone Mashile won some and lost some. She seems like such a nice girl, but unprepared to swim in the real world, and the sharks were circling!
Despite the explosive fight Rhylee Gerber had with Ashton Pienaar and Kevin Dobson over appetizers, the crew still decides to hit the bar. I’m guessing since they were arguing OVER APPETIZERS no one even got to the main course. Maybe the reason they all got so insanely drunk was the result of low stomach contents?
Although Rhylee behaved badly, Kate Chastain still sides with her. Why? It’s because Kevin is a giant obnoxious gob of obnoxious gobbiness. To whit, he is screaming nonsense at the bar and so hammered he can barely function.
Below Deck has become one of the hottest franchises on Bravo. People love to watch the glamorous yacht life and the drama between the crew. Captain Lee Rosbach is somewhat of a pop culture icon at this point. Unlike Captain Sandy Yawn, Captain Lee rules his crew with an iron fish. There is no room for BS, and you need to get your work done. It takes a strong person to work under someone like him.
Before Below Deck, the ruling franchise on Bravo was The Real Housewives. Think for a second and imagine what a crossover might look like. Imagine if Captain Lee hired one of the Housewives to work on his yacht. There is no shortage of Housewives to choose from, but some may lack the work ethic required. Luckily for inquisitive fans, Captain Lee is FINALLY revealing which Housewife he’d want to work with.
