Below Deck Eddie Lucas

Listen, if you are trying to return to Below Deck after making yourself look like an idiot, come get your moment. Last time we saw Eddie Lucas, he was being a complete tool in the laundromat of motor yacht Eros. Much to Eddie’s delight, after the ridiculous season viewers had with Below Deck Mediterranean, his previous discrepancies might be easier to handle.

Fans are thrilled to have Captain Lee Rosbach return at the helm, but the majority of his crew are new to us. The only familiar face is Eddie. The bosun’s previous dalliances with a crew member left him wallowing in shame and begging for his girlfriend’s forgiveness (we were ON A BREAK!). After departing the show on a pretty bad note, Eddie is back with his tail between his legs for that redemption edit.

Captain Lee Rosbach Returns In The Below Deck Season 8 Trailer

Ah yes, the Stud of the Sea is once again floating on the waters of the Caribbean. Below Deck is back and Captain Lee Rosbach is bringing an old friend with him. I can’t be the only one happy to see Captain Lee at the helm of My Seanna. Especially after the messy and mildly traumatic season Captain Sandy Yawn brought us on Below Deck Mediterranean. Thank goodness the two captains lead with very different methods and we aren’t likely to see Lee saying someone is secretly gay on a Cameo.

There’s a new cast, but you might recognize one or two faces. Season 8 promises to bring crew dissention, wasted guests, and Captain Lee’s expertise as a wordsmith. How can you not reflect on some of his wiser quotes like, “We’ve gone through more deckhands than a condom salesman in a whorehouse.” Certainly didn’t get inspo like that from Sandy… Grab your life vests, the new Season 8 trailer has officially dropped.

reunion below deck crew

“He’s Captain Lee (Captain Lee, Captain Lee), when you crew for him, you’re working hard as can be. Fool around, you’ll scrub the decks till three. He’s rough. He’s tough. He’s alpha to a tee. Captain Lee…he’s the stud of the sea!” Can I get an “AMEN”?!?

We learned a lot of juicy little secrets on the final installment of the Below Deck reunion, didn’t we? Captain HAROLD Lee Rosbach? Respect! The reunion begins where last week’s left off…galley-gate! Raquel “Rocky” Dakota Bartlow is still accusing Kate Chastain of boozing on the clock when the fire started, and Captain Lee reminds her that former chef Leon “Beef Cheeks” Walker said she was and then admitted that she wasn’t. One way or another, he was lying. Amy Johnson skirts Andy Cohen’s direct question as to whether she’s ever seen Kate drinking on charter by responding that she thinks all of the finger pointing is petty. Andy drops the subject and moves onto my favorite Bravo promo in the history of television. Lee jokes that his wife “has gotten a lot of mileage” out of his “alpha to a tee” persona, and the crew reveals he’s a bit of a celebrity…and his first name is actually Harold, which Andy never knew. Lee’s plethora of colorful metaphors is revisited, with “when you get caught with your tit in the ringer” being everyone’s new favorite. Rocky accuses the Captain of showing support to his chief stew and head bosun, but Amy disagrees. She believes he is there for his entire crew, and Lee is quick to respond he’d lay the smack down on anyone–even Eddie Lucas–if he thought it was necessary.

below deck reunion

“Mental wounds not healing; who and what’s to blame? I’m goin’ off the rails on a crazy train!” What could possibly be to blame? Maybe those sparkly butterflies occupying the ceiling of Eros? I so wanted another boat ballad to steer us into last night’s fun, but a little Ozzy Osbourne never hurt anyone. Plus, a boat is just a train on water, right? I don’t know about y’all, but I think it’s high tide, um, I mean “high time,” that the crew of Below Deck got a proper reunion! And a two-parter to boot! They have clearly arrived by Bravo standards! Andy Cohen has pulled the yachties from the WWHL clubhouse, and he feels like Captain Lee Rosbach has called them all to the bridge of the Eros.

Emile Kotze is sporting his grandfather’s suit, Eddie Lucas is looking adorable with a beard (it almost–ALMOST–makes me forget his douche-esque behavior this season!) and Kate Chastain has foregone the resting bitch face…for the time being. The get together kicks off with the gang recalling their favorite charter guests, and Connie Arias recalls that her roommate Emile would ask her to hit the deck a few minutes early every morning so he could spank the salami (or whatever the phrase may be). Lovely. Andy inquires as to why Raquel “Rocky” Dakota Bartlow is always chatting with her pal the ceiling, and she jokes that there were likely sparkly butterflies and unicorns flying around up there. When Eddie tries to crack a joke, Rocky jumps. Does Eddie want to get into things already? Is his girlfriend there so Rocky can share some of the sordid details of their laundry room hook-ups?

Below Deck - Season 3

Rocky Dakota recently gushed about how close she’s grown to all her castmates since Eros docked. Obviously Below Deck watchers were like, uhhhh… something’s fishy because everybody HATED Rocky’s guts about 5 minutes ago. It turns out Rocky’s ‘fake’ interview was just the latest installment in the Rocky Horror Boat Show and Rocky admitted she lied! 

In the cast update, Rocky who has been in a bubble of Dom and Yoga, while flinging her mermaid tail from Paris to Hawaii to Captain Aleksarms yacht, gave a long quote about the friendships she’s formed with several members of the Eros crew, even cooking dinner with Captain Lee and calling Connie Arias to talk bikini tips. Oh yeah, Rocky also claimed Eddie loved her!

Below Deck season 3 cast

Since Eros docked, where is the cast of Below Deck now? Are they sailing paradise on a new boat, or are they relaxing beach-side until Bravo picks them up for another voyage? 

After a ROCKY season, it seems most of the cast is on a much-needed hiatus form each other and reality TV cameras. I cannot imagine being crammed on a boat, with cameras, and crew, and Captain Lee‘s moods (I love Captain Lee), or Kate Chastain‘s lectures. But alas – they all remain friendly with each other, yes, even with Rocky Dakota!

Below the crew shares on what they’re up to now and will they board another Boat by Bravo to continue sailing the high seas!

Take us back to dock, Jimmy Buffett…”I used to rule my world from a pay phone and ships out on the sea; but now times are rough, and I got too much stuff–can’t explain the likes of me. But there’s this one particular harbor, so far but yet so near; where I see the days as they fade away, and finally disappear.” Thanks for joining us for Below Deck’s final voyage on the Eros, at least for this season. Can we say cray-cray? Thank goodness Captain Lee Rosbach was able to keep is alpha cool among all the chaos!

The episode begins with Amy Johnson and Raquel “Rocky” Dakota Bartlow warning Emile Kotze that confronting Eddie Lucas about his spin cycle affair with Rocky is a bad idea. Well, Amy is doing most of the warning…Rocky is licking her chops and trying to hide her “my plan is working!” grin. Rocky then asks is Amy is jealous of laundry room liaisons with Eddie given Amy’s long-time crush on the bosun. There’s nothing like salt in the wound, right readers? The confusing charter guests are in full swing. Who are these girls? Why did these two guys who are clearly getting nada from their ladies paying for them to be on a chartered yacht? The girls look at the two primary guests as photographers who can capture their every moment flanked by Emile and Eddie

Another week, and more explosive drama on Below Deck. I mean, we all thought Leon was dramatic, but this week’s episode was definitely more shocking, when Eddie and Rocky’s affair was revealed. But the fun really started when Eddie refused to acknowledge Rocky, girlfriend decided to take it upon herself to start blabbing to the rest of the crew (classy as usual). And now, we only have another week to find out how this season will end.

If you’re anxiously awaiting to find out how it all ends, you’re in luck. No, we don’t have any finale spoilers, but what we do know is what Captain Lee thinks of it all. And not surprisingly, Captain Lee is not the least bit impressed with Rocky’s recent behavior. Get all of the juicy details after the jump!
