It was another dramatic evening around here last night. And for some reason, Below Deck did not tape at 10 and the 12:30 showing seems to have only picked up about 47 minutes of the show. This is kind of infuriating because I am hoping once again that the end will be Trevor receiving his ticket home and this is all I have been waiting for all season. Let’s hope the missing minutes come at the beginning.
It looks like I did loss from the front of the show, I’m starting with the normal deck hands doing some polishing and talking about Trevor. It appears they are going to be working the charter without Trevor. Perhaps he has been confined to his quarters again? Ah. It is On Demand. I will be able to see the first part after all.
We start with everyone trying to get home and Trevor being a dick. Trevor says he has a Marine with PTSD for a Bosun. He says that no one cares about his friends that died in the military because they signed up for the military. They top the bus they are taking back to the boat. Kelly tells Trevor to go get a hotel room because he is not coming back on the boat.
The next morning everyone is still drunk. Captain Lee can’t find his radio. Kate is going to break the news to Captain Lee that Trevor is not on the boat. Oh, actually, Kelly is going to tell him. Captain wants to interview everyone about what happened before making a decision. Everyone tells him the same thing. Ben seems to think he deserves one more chance. No way. Trevor arrives and tells the Captain that basically the problem is “them figuring out I was a hair model.” Captain Lee fires him. Trevor apologies to Ben and Kelly and does some exit interviews where he says he has no idea who could possibly replace him. It was not nearly as dramatic as I had hoped.
The guests this week Internet entrepreneurs with pretty much every stupid food request anyone can have. There is basically nothing everyone in this group eats. So of course they want a twelve course tasting menu. I would say the courses would be air and water but one idiot has specified a ph level for her water.
Sierra is a nutjob who is into gluten-free vegan crap and amazingly she is sort of helpful with helping Ben get some um, nutty ideas. Nuts are gluten free right? Sierra claims to have a juicing business, yet she needed someone to show her how to use a juicer.
Right away the cruise is starting with high winds. This boat really is gorgeous. Much nicer than any previous season. Kate describes the guests as “D list Quentin Tarantino characters.” Normally, I hate when they rag on the guests; however, these people are more than a little bit odd. One of the guys tells Emily(?) she has a nice smile, and if his wife dies, he might be interested.
Nico accidentally overfilled the hot tub. Kelly jumps right in to help with cleanup and is very understanding. I like this season Kelly. Captain Lee wants ALL the toys out. He told Kelly “If it floats I want it behind the boat.” This is the worst job ever for the deckhands. I keep forgetting Kelley has an extraneous ‘e’ in his name. #SorryNotSorry Kelley and Nico are waging a friendly competition over Emily.
Sierra is being put on Carolina duty. She is the one that doesn’t eat anything. She has already eaten conch because she didn’t know it was a shellfish. I hope she’s just picky and not allergic. Do they have epi pens on the boat? Ben is overwhelmed and Sierra is not a lot of help. Because, Sierra. Even Lauren is chipping in a bit. Sierra hasn’t taken the salad out for Carolina and the others are three courses in. When she does, Carolina is mad she is not getting twelve courses like everyone else. Really?
As the tasting menu they asked for approaches the third hour the guests are getting full and sleepy. Ben coddled Sierra’s useless self like a toddler. And yet, Sierra’s butt hurt about something. In confessional she cries and says she just wants to go home. I’m all for that. I think that Sierra went to one of those colleges with safe zones. Perhaps, if Ben had put a trigger warning sign up and the Captain had a team of counselors on hand if she need therapy she would not be having such a stressful time.
Next week we get a new deckhand. I’ve seen four seconds of him and he’s a no.
