Kate is getting a LOT of crap on social media about this episode and her nonchalant attitude about Jen’s encounter with the half naked woman who hugged her and told her she could not leave the room. I sort of just thought it was all scripted. I also thought that Kate’s response was fine, she ran interference for her the rest of the charter. But people were really pissed about her telling Jen she was sending mixed signals. Thoughts?
See end of post for Captain Lee’s response.
It’s Halloween and there was just a giant thud somewhere in my yard. I am going to pretend like I didn’t hear it and take a few breaths and power through this recap. I’m anxious and cranky and I already want to smack Nico in the face, and I kinda like Nico. So bitch mode is on.
It’s day one of the charter and these guests are already high maintenance. Jen sounds like she’s been sucking on helium balloons and is trying to out whine the guests. The drunk blonde bimbo is going to give her a run for her money though.
Baker and EJ’s off beat relationship continues where Baker is the sexually aggressive guy and EJ is the knock-kneed submissive female. The guests are naked wasted by lunch. At dinner they are white girl wasted. Several of them are hitting on Jen inappropriately. At one point Jen brings something to a couple in their cabin and the wife tells her that he husband likes her. Jen smiles and says “Thank you.” Then the wife closes the cabin door on the camera and tells Jen, “You are not allowed to leave.” That’s creepy. Then she takes off her shirt and wants to give her a hug.
The crew set up the pajama party they requested. After the fact, Kate realizes that it’s a minimum a lingerie party, and more likely an outdoor orgy on the deck. I can’t believe none of them have thrown up yet. On the bright side, they are all in a bed somewhere by midnight.
The next day, Nico volunteers to oversee the beach party in order to show Captain Lee he can handle it. EJ is thrilled to have an easy day on the boat.
I wish Matt would make me a sandwich. I love me a good sandwich.
The beach set up is a disaster from the start. First they break the tent. The Kate points out they don’t need a tent when there is a cabana. This is all scripted. It was pretty much a disaster. This entire episode is over acted. Captain Lee is really good with his script. Kate is good with hers. The rest of them? Not so much. At dinner, everyone keeps complimenting Jen in a creepy way. The wife was patting Jen on the ass and remarking on her cute butt. She literally hid in a closet to avoid her. This was the worst cruise of the season. Captain Lee says he is unhappy with the crew for being content with mediocre service.
For this shore leave, Nico’s brother is in town and everyone is going to take a party bus and go drinking. It looks like things are not going heat up on shore until next week. This gives me time to decide how much information on Nico’s brother I want to share.
On Coco Beach we find out that Nico and Baker are both members of the triple nipple club. Which is exactly what it sounds like. #WitchsTit
EJ wore jeans to the beach. Who does that? His moves on Baker were laughable. He must be a virgin.
After an afternoon on the beach the gang gets on the party bus which is literally a bar on a bus in case they need a drink in between bars. What could possibly go wrong? Everyone gets wasted and Jen puts the moves on Josh, Nico’s brother. He is more than receptive to what she is offering.
And just like that we are back on the boat. I guess Coco Beach was not down with cameras in the bar. That was probably the entire reason for the bus. It was the only place they could film. Everyone has been barefoot in all the nasty bars and their feet are all black. EJ is the first to notice and tells everyone they need to wash their feet. Josh back talks him and Nico joins in. Nico makes some crude nonsensical comment toward Nico. They really are both dicks.
Next weeks: More difficult charter guests. Nico screws up again.
@Kate_Chastain handled it well. She isolated Jen from the guest n made sure she wasn't alone with them again. Reason with drunks, never easy

While I agree with Captain Lee’s response, it’s hilarious to me that the person tweeting Captain Lee doesn’t seem to know that Kate could boils babies, peel off their skin and eat them with ranch dressing and Captain Lee would be fine with it. I just sayin…
