Captain Lee is back on Below Deck and filming for the upcoming season is almost over. That’s the good news. The bad news is I really lost interest in Below Deck last year as it became a show about trash talking the clients. Each week I had guests contacting me telling me horror stories. Some guests were speaking for themselves and other guests. It got to the point that I no longer knew how to approach the story. Some people wanted to write things but were quoting people I had not spoken too. It was all an ugly mess and the story truly did need telling but it was becoming way too time consuming and the disgruntled guests seemed to be more disgruntled the longer I dallied in writing the piece.
Another problem I had was I have always liked Captain Lee. And some of the guests had some seriously hurt feeling about the things he said about them in his talking heads. I couldn’t see a way to explain the comment about dragging his dick a mile through broken glass rather than having some guests back on his ship. I couldn’t see taking out his remarks and leaving in everyone elses. It just became a headache.
So anyway, the reason I am writing about this now is that I keep getting sent tea saying Kenya, Claudia and Cynthia filmed an episode of Below Deck. It’s pretty much confirmed that they just got back from doing just that. Although Cynthia looks weird in photos and Kenya isn’t in any group shots. So… whatever.
I’ve also gotten tips that the only female returning is Amy Johnson. I have confirmed that Amy is back and there are two new girls Connie and Raquel who both appear to be insane. It remains to be seen if they are enjoyably insane or annoyingly insane. Given casting history for this show, I’m guessing the later.
Amy also seems to be a LOT skinnier and just looks less like her and more like Kate. Please don’t let Kate be back.
Okay I haven’t really looked into this much. I’m just not over last season yet and not interested in the next for now.
So that all the tea tonight, sorry if this is a bit disjointed. I’m super tired.
