On the latest Below Deck After Show, the deck crew of My Seanna have outdone themselves and hit a new low. The latest snafu had the charter guests, including two small children, stranded on a tropical island with no water, no provisions, and nary a deck crew member in attendance.
The bags were packed but left on the tender. I think a space should be made for Captain Obvious on this ship. As in, thank you Captain Obvious for suggesting that people need to stay hydrated in a tropical environment.
On last night’s Below Deck the communication breakdown continued as Chandler Brooks found himself abandoning guests and Caroline Bedol pushed Chef Zen to the brink of rage that even several hours in downward dog mediation couldn’t fix. OM… gonna snap!
It’s the morning after Caroline got put in the time-out cabin to recuperate for her suspicious foot issue, and she’s feeling betterish. I mean as better as she can feel while still being singled out (and unfortunately not by Chandler!) by Kate Chastain and Josiah Carter‘s mean girl vendetta!
This time Caroline walks in on Josiah and Kate questioning if she’s possibly lying or exaggerating her injury. “I’m not lying!” Caroline insists defensively, already on the brink of hysteria.
The best way to watch Below Deck is by following along with Captain Lee Rosbach’s live tweets. The Stud of the Sea has no problem calling people out. He threw a lot of shade at Bosun Chandler Brooks and Third Stew Caroline Bedol.
Caroline has really been struggling this season. She’s the odd one out in the interior with Kate Chastain and Josiah Carter, who became instant best friends. She’s also dealing with a foot injury. Pretty much no one is a fan of Chandler- socially or professionally. Captain Lee is a class act through and through, but he even he can’t help but snap from time to time.
Why does Below Deck always have bosun problems? It’s basically a guarantee on these shows that the third stew and the bosun will be a mess and all season everyone will be moaning and groaning over their ineptitude and bad attitude. Well, here we go again!
Caroline Bedol is the little chihuahua that can’t. Work that is. With a swollen foot giving her a sulky disposition, Caroline begs Kate Chastain for ways to work lite. Like avoiding lates. Josiah Carter barely speaks, he mostly rolls his eyes and snorts, but when he does speak he’s usually groaning, “Ugh Caroline…” He has no idea why a third stew thinks she’s in any position to complain about what hours she works.
Technically speaking, the crew on this season of Below Deck is very competent. There are hardly any “green” crew members, like in years past. Even so, that doesn’t mean that there’s less drama. In fact, there’s more drama within the crew and it’s probably because everyone thinks that they know what they’re talking about and refuses to take direction.
ZOMG – a sea monster took over Caroline Bedol‘s food, implanted it with an egg which will soon hatch into live young, that turn into slimy clear-colored creatures that eat Kate Chastain‘s nasty attitude. And then turn her into a giant Cheeto after midnight. Or at least that’s my Halloween version of what happened on last night’s Below Deck!
What actually happened is that Chandler Brooks continued to show the same leadership skills as a teenager morphed into an adult in Freaky Friday. He’s also, as Rhylee Gerber so eloquently told us, just a really big “prick.” Indeed. Maybe HE is what punctured Caroline’s toe and caused it to swell up voluminously it will eventually take over her entire body and turn it into one of the giant pillows they drop over the side of the boat? You know the ones Rhylee *gasp* dragged for the second time even though she knew better!
There’s no doubt about it: Captain Lee Rosbach is one of the most respected Bravolebrities. Everyone has high praise for him and there are plenty of Below Deck cast members and viewers that fear disappointing them. However, this season’s bosun Chandler Brooks is not one of those people.
Defying Captain Lee is not a good move to make as a crew member or a cast member. This is not going to go over well on the boat or with the Below Deck fans.
