Have you ever wondered what it was like to be a Below Deck charter guest? What can you request? What is out of the question? How do the cast members really act? Are they professional? Or are the romances and workplace tension very apparent? There are just so many questions that come to mind. Personally, I’m such a fan that I would want to hang out with the crew members just as much as I would want to chill with my own friends. Who am I kidding? I would ditch my closest friends to have dinner with Captain Lee Rosbach.
Charley Walters has the answers to a lot of those questions. He was a charter guest on Below Deck multiple times. During the most recent season, Charley and his friends reminded Second Stew Josiah Carter of the bullying he faced growing up. Ultimately, it all ended well with Josiah rocking a gold speedo at their gold themed event. Nevertheless, the episode did showcase Josiah’s vulnerability, something the viewers did not get to see much of considering Josiah’s near perfection as an employee.
Last night we officially sent the cast of Below Deck on their final charter and we waved farewell with Tahitian flower crowns in our hair. Don’t I wish! Actually far from sunsets, the entire affair took place in the dark, sordid Watch What Happens Live clubhouse, with the disco’d up cast perched on uncomfortable stools which are clearly the castoffs from one of Lisa Vanderpump‘s collaborations with Nick Alain gone wrong!
First off Andy Cohen clears the suspense by stating that Caroline Bedol and Chandler Brooks won’t be joining them. That statement made it pretty much apparent that the reunion would be boring as everyone else was BFF by the time the season ended. Several of them are still close friends today!
Seriously, though, I had forgotten Caroline and Chandler were even on the show this season was so busy. Other than Rhylee Gerber they were the sole sources of drama in the first half of the season.
Of course, our points of comparison are the previous deck crew letting the yacht slam into the dock. Or a chef with a fondness for beef-cheeks. We don’t even have to go back that far in time. Who could forget Chandler Brooks inept reign as bosun?
Last night was the season finale of Below Deck and while Krystal may have been the worst charter guest like ever, I agree with Kate Chastain. This has been the best crew and the best Below Deck season. So yay for keeping the equilibrium even at sea. Cause sharing the sea with slugs is what it’s all about, right?!
So obviously the first and worst sea slug to deal with is Krystal herself. She is passed out on deck, wrapped in a blanket, aka a shame cocoon. Except I don’t actually think Krystal has any shame about abusing her friends or the people serving her. After threatening Kate and Josiah Carter several times, Krystal suddenly remembers she has these things called legs, which are attached to there hip bones, so she stomps downstairs to her cabin, slamming the door. Kate, who is practically levitating with rage, immediately goes to bed. Poor Josiah is stuck staying up all night cleaning up after these ungrateful wenches.
Anyway, Krazy Krystal is still in her shame cocoon. Kate wants that girl served a nice, cold helping of hose in her face to wash off the drunken entitlement tantrum. It doesn’t sound like things improve between Kate and Krystal when Kate forgets it’s her birthday! Freudian slip?
Captain Lee Rosbach hates babysitting. Even so, he does trend towards giving both professional and personal advice to his crew. At least for the purpose of writing his Below Deck blog. This week he had a lot to say to Tyler Rowland for dumping Rhylee Gerber at a cheap patio bar. You wouldn’t even think you were in Tahiti sitting on that slab of concrete.
But professionally, the Captain had nothing to chastise his crew over. And he’ll always give praise where it’s due. Captain Lee had great feedback for his Bosun Ross Inia, and Chief Stew Kate Chastain. Both department heads have been keeping it drama free.
Rhylee Gerberand Tyler Rowland as a couple make for uncomfortable TV. If they’re not getting intimate without any regard for the camera in their room, they’re bringingBelow Deckviewers along on their cringeworthy date.
Not only was it an awkward date, but a lazy one at best. Considering their shared outdoor interests, Tyler could have surely planned some activity. You’re in Tahiti after all!
