Like the rest of the audience tuning in to Below Deck each week, Captain Lee Rosbach has reached his limit on how much crew dysfunction he could watch during the last episode. After a bit of a hiatus, Captain Lee returned to blogging on his official website. He shared his opinions and feedback for each of the crew members. Of course, he discussed what went down on My Seanna last week.
Unsurprisingly, Captain Lee had only good things to say about most of the crew. Ashton Pienaar, Ross Inia, Adrian Martin, Kate Chastain, and Josiah Carter got some well deserved praise. Even Rhylee Gerber’s critique was mainly constructive with suggestions to be less reactionary to
Chandler situations on deck. On Captain’s Lee “screwed the pooch” list was Caroline Bedol, and Bosun Chandler Brooks. This is not at all surprising.
Opposites attract, right? Chandler Brooks is dating Jamie Jason. Yes, that’s right. The most polarizing cast member on Below Deck this season is in a relationship with the least confrontational character from Below Deck Mediterranean last season. She didn’t have one storyline last season other than getting a cold and missing some shifts to rest. In contrast, Chandler is bothering everyone on Below Deck.
Other than the obvious Bravolebrity connection and their experiences on luxury yachts, this just seems like something out of left field. However, Jamie has been dropping plenty of hints about the relationship.
Last night’s Below Deck was a literal bloody mess! I mean Chandler Brooks was dropping guests, Caroline Bedol was dropping everything – including whatever slim grasp she has on sanity. Captain Lee Rosbach has officially done lost his patience.
Chandler still can’t get it together. After the disaster when they took the guests to swim with the sharks, the guests realized the sharks were among them as the deck crew. Instead of taking responsibility for the mistake, Chandler makes excuses then lectures the deck crew for making him look bad. At his wit’s end, Ashton Pineaar, speaks up about how the lack of communication and direction is the reason they’re making silly mistakes. Chandler obviously does not agree.
The tension has been building between bosun Chandler Brooks and the rest of the Below Deck cast all season. Captain Lee Rosbach is running out of patience. The deck crew craves new leadership, but how will this end up?
Does Captain Lee fire Chandler? Or does Chandler suddenly start listening to instructions and improve his communication skills? Clearly, the former is the most likely scenario.
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.
