After a season that just sort of flew by, it is already time for the reunion.
Wes tells us that he went straight back to work on a yacht in South Africa and after a few weeks Bugs showed up to be chief stew. Bobby has worked on the west coast for a bit with Adam.
We rehash the same argument we have a heard three times about Bobby bringing two random fans off of Instagram to the clubhouse because he had four tickets. Lauren felt she was on a date and this was disrespectful. Andy pipes in with it was uncool of him to bring “random strange fans” to the clubhouse. Who says that? Does Andy feel the need to approve everyone who comes to see him toss rings onto penises of nekkid guys? Does he think his show has some sort of exclusivity where only the most refined and influential people can come what him don a wig and pretend to be a housewife live? What an ego this one has. Lauren explains that in FLL he invited her to a watch party but let her know he would be busy with his fans. So she went with three friends and Ben started talking to her and Bobby never acknowledged her presence so she left with Ben. She says Ben was playing her too because he was with Emily. Bobby is outraged that Lauren and Hannah would lie so much and he has no idea what he did to deserve this sort of treatment from them. Um, Lauren seems to be telling the truth here to me. Bobby says that he has tons of text to prove he is telling the truth. Then he says that Lauren said if he didn’t pay her attention, she’s going to go fuck Ben. So? You are ignoring her?
A fan asked Bobby if he ever apologized for getting in her face on the boat and for the way he talked to her on WWHL. He says that he did. Hannah says she has not spoken a word to him since WWHL. Hannah’s dress is very distracting. I do not understand the bar across her chest.
The onion gate storyline is ridiculous. But Captain Sandy is acting like it was a real thing. She says Adam should have been fired. Captain Sandy says she was also shocked with how Adam treated the women on the boat, other than Malia. Adam says that he regrets all of his behavior on the show. He was heartbroken.
Finally we turn to Hannah and her sexcapade with Jason the primary guest she slept with. Bugs is asked why she didn’t go to Captain Sandy with the tablet first? BECAUSE THE SCRIPT SAID TO TELL HER ARCH RIVAL BOBBY! It must be exasperating not to say this. Hannah wants to know why she took it off the boat and monitored it for ten hours. Actually, she had not time for that, SHE WAS THE ONE DOING THE WORK WHILE YOU WERE TEXTING THE PRIMARY FOR TEN HOURS. Hannah says that she was mistrustful of Bugsy because she had been to acting school and pursued that for a while. Bugs says she is sorry that she pursued other passions before being a yachtie for four years. Also Bugsy went straight back to yachting after filming ended. Hannah has not mentioned returning to a boat at all.
Hannah says she is not in a relationship with Jason. Bobby says he has seen Paula since filming stopped. It doesn’t sound like they are dating either.
Captain Sandy is pissed off that Hannah and Adam both lied to her. She says that really affects her. Hannah seems to not like the fact that Captain Sandy and everyone else with a functioning brain who watched the show think she lied about him kissing her first. I think she is also lying about not sleeping with him.
Time for the big love triangle talk. Malia looks amazing tonight by the way. Adam says it was love at first sight for him. He said his Pops told him that is what he felt the day he met his Mother. They now say they only kissed before coming on the boat. Not sure I believe that either. Andy doesn’t seem to believe them either. Wes defends Malia. Bobby says he didn’t know that Malia and Adam had dated prior to filming until after filming ended. How is that possible?
Malia responds to everyone on social media who say she should not have led them both on. She says when you are on a boat for extended periods of time your motioned are heightened because you don’t get to interact with people. Honey, the boat docked every two days. You were free to roam around Croatia with no camera a lot of the time. Who know what really happened then? Malia says she has never had sex with Adam. Adam confirms this.
Wes seems reluctant to say that he and Malia are still seeing each other but he posted on his Instagram photos of them together in South Africa. Malia says it’s tough because they live and work in different places, but they try to keep in touch as much as they can. Andy asks a question he already knows the answer to, “Are they sharing a hotel room in NYC.” Yes, they are. Apparently Andy knows about the IG as well. He says, “Here’s the deal. I heard you guys are officially a couple.” And Wes says, “So we have to say it?” Ah She left with him from the reunion to go to South Africa so the photos were posted after the reunion. I forgot about that part.
Adam seems to be taking it well. He says the three of them went out for drinks last night. He says he is fine. Andy wants to poke Adam some more. Adam again is very gracious.
Captain Sandy says Malia was the right choice for lead deck hand. Max says Bobby was sort of overlooked about the lead deck hand. Max has barely gotten a word in the entire time.
It’s the battle of the stews. Lauren admits she played both sides because she is a people pleaser. Bugsy said she never disagreed with Hannah in the workplace (around guests) but that she did express at times how she is accustomed to doing things to Hannah. She also followed all of Hannah’s directions. Hannah and Bugsy seem to have a sort of professional acceptance of each other but I doubt they would ever be friends.
Andy once again tries to make Adam cry. Andy asks if there is a still part of him that loves Malia. He says no. Wes is totally Captain Sandy’s favorite. Hannah says she regrets making out with the charter guest and not giving Captain Sandy more time in the beginning for them to get to know each others work styles. Bugsy say she regrets not approaching Hannah earlier in the season with her grievances. Max would have spent more time on the bridge. Malia wishes that she would have made her decision sooner. Adam regrets not telling Wes he was in love with Malia from the beginning. Lauren has no regrets. Bobby says he has no regrets but he learned a lot about what not to do.
Overall, there were lots of simmering emotions on this reunion that were left unaddressed. Nearly everyone here is trying to continue working in the yachting industry and needs to really be on their best behavior.
