I don’t even know what to say about tonight’s Below Deck except where do they find these people? A sanitarium? A circus? A casting call for the insanely entitled? A meeting of Delusionals Anonymous? Actually I feel like Tyler Rowland is chairing that meeting. And obviously I’m delusional too if I think that’s all I’m going to say about last night’s epic episode!
So we open the episode with drunk guests falling off a moving jet ski at 10 am. The jet ski definitely would’ve failed a field sobriety test, but Captain Lee Rosbach screaming in the guests’ faces certainly knocked the sobriety into them!
Below Deck returns tonight, bringing some insane charter guests, and a deeper glimpse into what will become of the relationships on this show once the charter season ends. Uh-oh!
With one charter left until the end of the season, Tyler Rowland asks Rhylee Gerber out on an official date. Then, he learns that have drastically different expectations for what comes next.
The drama of Below Deck tends to manifest in different areas of the boat as a season progresses. The interactions of this crew, both good and bad, have migrated from the crew mess, to the swim platform, back to the staff quarters. On this week’s After Show, the cast dish on their experiences rooming with a member of the opposite sex.
And this season seems to have more co-ed cabins than usual. Chief Stew Kate Chastain and her bestie Josiah Carter share a room. Laura Betancourt is fending off unwanted suggestive comments from her roommate Adrian Martin. Rhylee Gerber’s cabin previously witnessed the breakdown of Caroline Bedol. Now it’s all about night-vision hookups between herself and Tyler Rowland.
With the crew of Below Deck operating at about the least amount of dysfunction that we’ve seen yet this season. Captain Lee Rosbach devoted more of his blog to relationship and life advice. So he had less to say to Kate Chastain, Josiah Carter, and Ross Inia this week. This trio keeps it professional on the boat for sure.
Captain Lee praised Kate for managing her crew so well. He wrote, “Your interior team seems to be running on all cylinders so kudos to you. Everyone seems to be getting on well and pulling together. I’m loving it.”
The true star of last week’s Below Deck was Josiah Carter and the contents of his gold speedo. It’s really refreshing to learn more about Josiah and watch him overcome some insecurities. The only other notable moment of the episode was Tyler Rowland mumbling about “skid marks” and his jar of peanut butter. Entertaining, but not article-worthy.
Up to this point, Josiah has kept his prim and proper British butler persona and we haven’t seen much more than that. But this particular group of charter guests forced Josiah to relive past bullying trauma. Josiah sat down with Chief Stew Kate Chastain on the Below Deck After Show to reflect on the incident.
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.
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.
