Captain Lee Rosbach Traumatized By Ashton Pienaar Falling Overboard On Below Deck

It feels like they have been teasing Ashton Pienaar’s fall on Below Deck forever. The viewers finally caught a glimpse at the moment during last episode, but it was at the very end. Of course, they hit us with a cliffhanger.

Thankfully, Ashton is OK, but the incident had a profound effect on the crew, even the normally unflappable Captain Lee Rosbach.

Man overboard!

On last night’s Below Deck, we met the replacements. Aka, the new third stew Laura Betancourt, and new deckhand Tyler Rowland. Laura and Kate Chastain are like oil and water from the very second of interaction. So that should go about as well as still having Caroline Bedol on board.

Finally, we saw the moment when Ashton Pienaar went overboard. But, in true Bravo fashion, after so much hype, it was tacked onto the very itty bitty end of the episode. We won’t really get to see it until next week. However, it looks like it’s partially Rhylee Gerber‘s fault! As you may know Rhylee does not follow the rules! Instead, she actually makes the rules, then changes the rules, and sometimes then breaks those rules too, but everyone will all bend to her will because her red hair is a magical whip of crazy what the f–k. Truly.

The Stud of the Sea shared his thoughts on the last episode Below Deck. Captain Lee Rosbach did not hold anything back.

Instagram Roundup: Reza Farahan, Lisa Vanderpump, Captain Lee, & More!

All eyes are on Lisa Vanderpump these days. If you’re searching for her, don’t look anywhere near the Beverly Hills Housewives. She’s not hanging out with any of them these days, but she does spend time with some beloved animals. Recently, she shared a photo of herself holding a giant bunny.

Flipping Out cast member Jenni Pulos posted a photo of herself and her new puppy named Jax. She did not specify if she named him after Vanderpump Rules star Jax Taylor, but that’s the first “Jax” that popped up in my mind.

Chandler Brooks is fired on Below Deck

And like dominoes, they fall on Below Deck! Last night the crew lost not one, but two members! It may be for the best, but good lord was everything a hot mess of crazy! My head is spinning.

Following disaster, after disaster, and dropping a guest, then pissing off Kate Chastain over ice cream, it’s Chandler Brooks time to go. Despite being fired Chandler actually waved his pink slip high in the air as he pranced off the boat hoping never to see the red hair of Rhylee Gerber again. Chandler is a free bird – ready to fly right into Jamie Jason‘s arms. He swears he’ll never leave the high seas behind, so maybe we’ll see him on Below Deck Med!

About the only person sad to see Chandler go is Caroline Bedol, who like kinda like-liked him, but kinda just like-liked having someone to funnel her dysfunction onto. BUT now that Chandler is gone Caroline has inherited his entire freezer drawer full of ice cream pints! It turns out ice cream consumption is the nail in one’s coffin on My Seanna, though! You have been warned that frozen dairy kills careers if mixed with Kate.

New Below Deck Tonight: Captain Lee Makes Changes To The Crew

Captain Lee Rosbach will fire someone on Below Deck. Or at least I think he will. They have been teasing a crew member termination all season on Below Deck. So far, bosun Chandler Brooks and Third Stew Caroline Bedol are the obvious candidates.

Chandler lacks leadership and personal skills. Furthermore, he basically dropped a charter guest last week. Caroline has been a bundle of nerves all season. On top of that, she injured her foot. As a result, she has not been able to pitch in as much as Kate Chastain and Josiah Carter. Will Captain Lee fire either one of them?

Below Deck Aftershow: The Crew Breaks Down Incident At The Beach And Chandler’s Attitude Afterwards

Time after time, we the viewers have been hoping that the fumblings of the deck crew on My Seanna would be improved upon the following episode and the Below Deck yacht could sail into proverbial calmer waters.  I hoped.  We all did.

In a way, things have gotten better.  Ashton Pienaar, Rhylee Gerber, and Ross Inia seem to be looking out for each other, and communicating more as a team.  Then there’s Chandler Brooks, the Bosun, who picked up a charter guest and saw her slip on algae-covered concrete. After that, he didn’t think to apologize to her or offer first aid assistance.

Below Deck Captain Lee Returns To Blogging; Gives The Crew His Feedback

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 BrooksThis is not at all surprising.
