Who will be returning to the cast of Below Deck Season 2? I’ve been pushing this blog to the back burner for far too long. But I believe that Bravo is getting ready to announce the new season, and I might as well scoop them. Really, the only important thing is that Captain Lee is coming back. I hope we get more scenes with him and less scenes of Kat getting drunk and acting a fool, because she is back too. Le sigh. I’m sure she will be fine, but frankly, I am not over them letting Adrienne go. When will Bravo learn that we want to see inside the life of a yachtie and no so much Kat reenacting every 18 year old’s first spring break in every port. We get it, Kat drinks a lot. If I wanted to see a drunk chick, I could look in the mirror.
Anyway, moving on, Ben is back to look adorable while bitching about cooking vegan dog food for purse dogs. I bet he will miss Adrienne this season too. 🙁 Eddie was given a second chance and also returns for season two. If I remember correctly, Eddie didn’t get much in the way of interesting face time until the last few episodes and we were all wondering where that funny, interesting guy was in the beginning.
That is all of the season one cast that is coming back. I’m not crying any tears over Aleks, CJ or especially Sam not coming back. I will miss Dave, our little gay porn star. Because, who doesn’t love a gay porn star? So we will have a new girl to argue with Sam and perhaps another ally. We need the conflict of three women sharing quarters. Two will ally and the other will…not. We’re going to need a slutty guy or two for the girls to hook up with, and that should about do it.
As for behind the scenes, there were some booking issues. It must be harder than we think to find rich attention whores who want to spend their spring break sailing the BVIs. For some reason Bravo doesn’t comp the trips for the “guests” on the show unless things get really desperate. They had a hard time getting all the slots filled back to back for filming. There were several times I saw them asking for (paid) guests with just a week or two before filming. The boat was bigger this year, and the rates were higher than last season. That said, I hear that the trips were “interesting” which is always a good sign. But, I’ll be the judge of that. 🙂
Bravo will be announcing the new cast and the premiere date, perhaps as soon as tomorrow. Word on the ocean is that the show is expected to return in mid to late August.
I’ll be watching, will you?
