On last night’s Below Deck hair-brained deckhand Abbi Murphy up and left to sail off into her future. Actually it was more like she got dropped off at a random dock somewhere outside of Phuket with a “good luck” from Captain Lee Rosbach. Don’t double-cross this guy!
Mid-Charter Abbi starts having some sort of breakdown over the slide. Which has destroyed the soul of many a deckhand. At that moment, as if her massive red hair parted to reveal a message of clarity: it was time to leave Valor.
Ashton Pienaar is shocked, but probably also relieved. Babysitting Abbi all day was interfering with his ability to manage the rest of his team, but alas, they’ll be down a deckhand on a massive boat. Captain Lee is about the only one who seems upset, mainly because he envisions himself some sort of high seas professional development coach who can whip anyone and everyone into a yachtie.
Last week it appeared that Abbi Murphy was poised to permanently leave Below Deck to marry her Greek sailboat captain boyfriend after an impromptu text proposal.
We know Abbi did in fact get married, but it also appears that she leaves the show over frustrations with the insane amount of work required to make pampered nouveau riche guests believe no demand is too outrageous!
In beautiful sunny Thailand there is no paradise aboard Valor as the crew of Below Deck fractures at the seams under the misguidance of Ashton Pienaar.
To be fair I don’t know if it’s Ashton being in over his head from a leadership perspective, or like many a bosun before him, culled by the crazy of a green deckhand. Or a redhead. In this case the double-whammy!
Abbi Murphy has essentially decided that leadership and pecking order be damned – she does what she wants! Like getting so wasted she spends the morning vomiting and misses her clock-in time on deck. Abbi thinks working on Valor, for Captain Lee Rosbach, is like being the tortilla chip flipper at Chipotle. You know – it’s totes fine to text your boss half an hour before your shift starts to let them know that you were like partying soooo hard the night before that your mascara is still smeared all over your morning after dress and mixing with tears from vomiting for 2 hours straight. Hotttt!
After finally ridding themselves of Below Deck‘s drunkest charter guest, the crew now has to tackle the problem of Kevin Dobson, the most arrogant and obnoxious chef the show has ever had!
Last week Kevin walked out in the middle of a meeting with Captain Lee Rosbach, then failed to serve him a main course during the guests final dinner. Knowing he’s in hot water Kevin decides to go overboard impressing
the newest crop of drunken buffoons guests with a ten-course tasting menu. Unfortunately Captain Lee still remains less than enamored with Kevin’s offerings.
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!
