We begin tonight’s episode with Wes choosing Malia to be lead deckhand. I really don’t see the point of this other than to give the deck crew the fresh storyline of “Malia is head deck hand because Wes has a crush on her.” But I suppose it is a better storyline than adding onions to the guests food for having the never to dislike onions. Wes tells Malia first and will tell the boys tomorrow. This will not go over well.
The weather is kicking up on the coast of Croatia, so dinner will be indoors. Captain Sandy realizes that the anchor is dragging because of the high winds. The winds are too strong for the anchors so the boat has to go back to port.
Dinner service seemed to go off without a hitch, but the yacht broker gave some feedback to Captain Sandy. Oh she did agree that dinner service was fantastic. However, there was a towel left behind from a previous guest in the Master bath. That’s it? Sound like a great review to me. And they love Adam who came out in chef whites instead of his usual grunge to greet the dinner guests.
The next morning the weather is windy and 57 degrees. Captain Sandy says they have to stay in port due to the winds. This really sucks for the guests who will receive not partial refund for the lost time at sea. One of the guests decides just to fly home.
When Wes tells the guys Malia is lead deckhand, the pretend to take it well. Bobby says that he thought he actually was lead deckhand, because he is the only one with experience.
The walking tour of Split was kind of a bust. The guests didn’t seem interested in the history of the town. I could have listened to it all day. Instead they opt to lay face down looking at the floor of the boat getting massages. What a waste of time. I did get a massage in Romania once, but it was just out of curiosity of how it would go. Plus I changed my itinerary and just stayed in Brasov for most of my trip because the train ride with the gypsies didn’t live up to my romantic notions and it was nearly impossible to figure out what the stops were.
Malia stupidly tells Bugsy and Lauren about kissing Wes on the bridge during anchor watch. Lauren thinks Malia’s promotion is ridiculous and compare it to her making out with Captain Sandy and being promoted to Chief Stew. Lauren goes straight to Hannah with the gossip. Then she tattles to Bobby, who is her mortal enemy. I see you Lauren! Sidenote, Lauren and Bobby got into it on Twitter recently and Bugsy and a couple others vouched for Bobby’s fine character. Bobby tells Max about the makeout session between Wes and Malia.
Adam has finally decided to showcase Croatian food for the last dinner. Hannah has hired a really cool group of male a Capella singers to serenade the guests. They are really trying to pull out all the stops. The guests absolutely loved it all.
Bobby and Max confront Wes about the shady looking promotion. Bobby says it is utter bullshit, unprofessional and bullshit. I don’t think any of these people care about being lead deckhand. So now everyone knows except Adam.
The next morning, Bobby wakes up angry and bitches to Max. Malia overhears and reminds us three or for times how attractive (and cute!) she is and that is the reason the guys are angry that she got the meaningless title. This is such a ridiculous storyline about nothing. Wes tells the guys to stop talking about it. The decision has been made. They need to either deal with it or leave.
Side note: Andy just did a promo for tonight’s WWHL and he is wearing the same outfit right down to the tie that he wore on last night’s show. Could he not have at least changed the tie? That bright orange striped tie is something that stands out.
Lauren fills Adam in on the makeout session. She sure is carrying a lot of bones now that she has gotten out of the ironing room for ten minutes. Lauren makes it seem like they have been making out for weeks. Then she admits she has no idea what she is talking about.
The guests were super understanding about the weather problem. The tip was only $12,000 though.
While the ship cruises to Dubrovnik, Adam confronts Malia and Wes. He plans to tell Wes about their relationship prior to the show. First Adam tells Hannah and Bugsy about their relationship. He has texts from Malia telling Adam that she is not interested in Wes and wants to spend their last night in Croatia together.
The crew has a day of shore leave in Dubrovnik. Adam, Bobby and Wes go to a pub to get wasted. Wes hangs with the girls first but eventually shows up where the guys are. He senses the hostility and goes to the bathroom to regroup before sitting down. He has a couple drinks with the already wasted guys. They are so drunk they are running into vehicles and being ridiculous. Drunk Bobby picks up Malia to forces him to put her down by giving him a giant wedgie. Then Wes and Adam start to get into a fist fight.
