On season five of Below Deck, there is no Ben Robinson, no Emily Warburton-Adams, no Kelley Johnson, no Lauren Burchell, no Sierra Storm, and no Trevor Walker. The only familiar faces this season will be Captain Lee’s sexy face, Kate Chastain’s resting bitch face, and Nico Scholly’s baby face.
Joining Chief Stew Kate on the interior will be Chef Matt Burns. These two will fight the entire trip. But will there be makeup sex? Brianna Adekeye and Jennifer Howell are Kate’s two stews. Neither of them have any experience.
Nico Scholly has been promoted to senior deckhand after just one season of work. As he says, the exterior is “greener than a leprechaun’s dick with Baker Manning, Bruno Duarte and Chris Brown on deck. All three are first time deckhands. This leads to one of them suffering a very serious hand injury due to his inexperience with the lines. You know, these shows are supposed to show the lives of people who work on yachts. Not the lives of people who are cast to pretend they work on yachts. Can they not find any REAL yachties who want to be on the show?
According to the PR:
For Kate, the frustrating task of getting two new stews quickly up to speed puts her stress at an all-time high, which results in her engaging in some off-boat escapades with a handsome sailor. Nico’s first challenge of being senior deckhand is balancing his new leadership role onboard while facing difficult circumstances with his family back home. When he realizes he has a history with new stew Brianna, crew dynamics become even more complicated as Chef Matt and deckhand Chris also begin vying for Brianna’s affection. First-time deckhand Bruno and single mom-turned-stew Jen are living their dreams by working on a yacht, but the heavy workload from their bosses may turn it into a nightmare. When the extreme pressure on deck collides with a sudden emergency, Captain Lee is forced to “reconfigure” the team. With the crew reeling from his decision, the group struggles to navigate through the high-stakes drama. Will they be able to attend to all of the guests every want and need and get through another charter season, or will they crumble under the pressure?
I believe the sudden emergency is Nico’s brother dying. That was such a tragic event that just reminds me how rough the end of 2016 was.
Full disclosure, I only made this post to use the above photo of Captain Lee. Also, FINALLY we get a hot chef! I think he is Canadian so I’m hoping he’s a bit more civilized.
