On last night’s episode of Below Deck some of the crew lost their minds on their night off and got wasted on the boat. Which is odd because wasn’t there a rule about not drinking on the boat? Was the captain for Below Deck Mediterrean the one with that rule? Either way, I know Captain Lee’s first rule is, “don’t disrespect yourself, or the boat.” Apparently, that is easier said than done on Below Deck. Kyle was allowed to stay in the master bedroom, which may be short for masturbation room in this instance, for some quality alone time. Lauren and Nico were wasted and decided to screw up his opportunity for solitude by being drunken idiots falling all over the place. Or at least pretending to. I find it hard to believe that was actual alcohol in those bottles. But let’s pretend it was. Ben, who we saw drink a ton of wine with his brother and then strip before walking down the pier to the boat, arrived on the scene drunk. Lauren, Nico and Ben started tearing up the master bathroom! Who does that?
According to Captain Lee’s blog this week, he didn’t see any of this until this week and he is pissed. Let me get out my purple pen to just a small part of it.
Let’s go crewmember by crewmember in dealing with this debacle. And make no mistake that is being polite, because if we were not on charter seven with only two charters to go, I would have fired all of you including and starting with a senior staff member named Ben. But having two charters to go and given the virtual impossibility of getting four crew to replace you, it is with distaste that I may be forced to keep you all on board. Much to my dismay, I might add. The future guests should not be penalized for your indiscretion and general lack of class.
Since when is walking down a 400 foot dock lined (with yachts on both sides) to the largest mega yacht in the marina with nothing on but a shirt and a smile your idea of class, culture, and breeding? If that is how the upper crust in England behaves, sorry, but I want no part of it. You violated both rules and compounded with your behavior last week; you sir, are an embarrassment to the yacht. Your continued behavior after you got back on board was no better. You are fortunate that I was not privy to what happened until now or there surely would have been serious consequences. As a senior staff member of the crew, you have a responsibility to behave in a certain fashion and set an example for the rest of the crew, which I have made clear to you on several occasions. You most certainly are not paying attention. As to whether you can redeem yourself, I would have to say at this stage of the game I doubt it. I am severely disappointed in your behavior as someone who claims to be a gentleman.
Rumor has it, Ben is kind of a jackass in real life. I think Ben probably got a few passes from Captain Lee when he was closer to Kate. It looks like those days are over. When Captain Lee calls you “an embarrassment to the yacht” you’re toast.
Lauren, I have no words to describe your total disrespect for the yacht you work on and your coworkers as well. Kyle, albeit not clearly enough, tried to tell you and Nico that he wanted to enjoy his night in the Master. Your behavior as well would have gotten you a plane ticket home had I known about it.
I have never understood why Captain Lee was so hard on Lauren. Then we had this episode and I was shocked by Lauren’s drunken behavior. This was worse the The Great Pizza Incident of 2016.
Nico, wow, you were the one in the beginning of the episode wondering why you couldn’t just have a functioning deck crew. Well, need I say more? While your boss did the correct thing in going to bed and counting on his crew to behave appropriately, you just couldn’t resist getting “twisted” as you so eloquently put it. Well done, Nico, way to show the world that you can do a professional job. You as well would have gotten a plane ticket along with the rest of your cohorts. Integrity is doing the right thing when no one else is watching. You failed in that.
Well, I mean there were cameramen watching. There is an upcoming scene that we saw on the trailer where Nico thinks he is gong to be promoted to Bosun. I think he is delusional..
Kyle, I’m not sure what you were thinking when Kelley asked you to get this thing settled between you and Sierra, but I’m sure it wasn’t what happened. You owed it to the boat and yourself to put it behind you and move on. But you just couldn’t bring yourself to do that, could you?
I don’ understand why Sierra is getting a free pass on this. She’s useless as a stew, and seems to pick at Kyle just as much as he pokes her.
Let’s look at the overall view here and see what’s what? You come onto a new boat with no charter experience whatsoever, and from what I can see, a ton of baggage. You have a baby mama and a girlfriend at home, and then you fall head over heels for a stew on board that is not exactly going gaga over you. You try to get in close with her, and when that fails, you get an attitude. On top of that, you don’t disclose all of this to her before proclaiming that you want to bed her. Do I have this right? That’s just so wrong on so many levels, I wouldn’t know where to start. All I want out of you is to do your job properly, which I might add you seem to be having difficulty with. I don’t care about your personal life or preferences, unless they interfere with my boat. Then I have issues.
Yeah, Kyle has a ton of issues. At first he said there was someone back home he seems “off and on” when he was trying to get with Sierra. Then the next thing we see is a montage of him with his girlfriend that he tells us is the first person in his life that makes him feel like he fits into the world. Before hitting on Sierra she was just someone who he sees occasionally. After Sierra shot him down in the rudest manner possible, the girl back home was his only reason for living. What’s up with that?
To your credit you did try to get the rest of the crew out of your master evening, but in my opinion not seriously enough. And then you just caved and went along with it. And really, does anyone really care about you wanking off? Please keep that to yourself in the future. Plane ticket? Oh yeah.
It’s really amazing that we are probably going to get through this season with only one crew member getting a plane ticket home. I’m shocked that Sierra made it as long as she did just based on lack of …a brain. I’m even more shocked that it seems like Ben is going to settle down with Emily. I do think they may a cute couple.
I can’t wait to see Captain Lee restrict them all to their quarters next week. Especially because Ben’s brother is still on the island. Watch for the two fingers to his face pose. That’s his tell for when he’s really pissed. 🙂
