We start with the love triangle or Brianna, Matt and Nico. Nico feels guilty about his feelings and video chats with his girlfriend. Matt asks Brianna to go on a beach picnic since she agreed to a date the night before. Bri reluctantly agrees but lets us know she really doesn’t think Matt is her type. Nico is nervous about the upcoming changes to the deck crew. Chris Brown is hungover again and unhappy that he has to work. Nico complains to Captain Lee about Chris Brown.
The new guests include a trained gourmet chef. It’s a ten year wedding anniversary. They don’t drink. That’s a new twist. It’s also only two couples. The primary charter guest, Brad is the chef, and also a schmuck.
Jen is pissed that Matt and Bri are going on a lunch date. Jen wants to know if she has to be sexually promiscuous to get extra time off. Jen please, Brianna hasn’t done anything with anyone other than bat her eyelashes as best as I can recall. Jen annoys me. Not to mention the Bri and Matt date is in the script and right there on the call sheet.
Matt is nervous about his date so he drank a lot of liquid courage. A LOT of liquid courage. So he is drunk as a skunk by the time their 3:30 date comes around. Drunk Matt is not cute. The producers sent them to a nude beach without telling them. Sneaky. Within five minutes Matt is asking her to buy an van or an airstream with him and travel the world. He guzzles some co-cola in a Jack Daniels bottle and suggests they get naked like everyone else. Brianna is looking for an exit strategy. As Matt gets drunker he starts alternating between begging Bri to love him and calling her an asshole and a bad date. Maybe it really is Jack Daniels. Yep. He’s really drunk. We find out that there reason Matt and his girlfriend broke up was because of his drinking. Mark is embarrassed and doesn’t really speak to anyone for the entire cruise.
Captain Lee has hired EJ to come on and be the Bosun. I find EJ annoying already. He is the one who said “cool beans” which is the official episode titles. Nico is pissed. So is Chris Brown because he doesn’t have a bunk anymore and will be sleeping in the crew mess where the crew eats. That’s interesting and something that can’t go on for long. EJ screws up and leaves a stern line on when they leave the dock. This pisses Nico off. EJ says “cool beans” all the time. This pisses everyone off. Nico is doing all the work.
Matt is hungover and seems nervous about his meals for the first time. The first lunch, a salad with chicken breast, was well received. For dinner, he makes scallops and brussel spout risotto. The risotto is undercooked. The woman having steak said her steak was way past medium. It looked medium to me. Desert was bananas Foster. It was unimpressive. Kate seems disturbed that Matt didn’t seem to care about the negative feedback. After dinner, fireworks went off to celebrate the second couple’s anniversary. The guest went to bed at 9:40. This means the will be up at butt crack of dawn thirty.
The next morning, Matt finds the primary roaming in his kitchen looking for coffee. Jen has overslept and instead of flying down to take care of her guest, spends 30 minutes doing her hair.
EJ screwed up pulling up the anchor. Nico will be letting the Captain know about that right away.
Next week: Jen floods the laundry room by putting too much detergent in the washers. It looks like Bruno drives the tender into a mega yacht. Kate and Bri gang up on Jen. And things with EJ and Nico come to a boil.
