At this point of the year, Below Deck has become the most talked about show on Tamara Tattles! It’s been a great season! Tonight, things take a very serious turn when Ashton gets caught up in the lines and pulled overboard. Spoiler alert! He survives and is scheduled to be on WWHL tonight; however, Andy announced today that Captain Lee would be on tonight. The schedule said Ashton, Ross and Rhylee were scheduled. If I had to guess, I would guess Rhylee might be the one that dropped out? Or maybe they all four will be there? I am going to save that recap for tomorrow. It’s been a very busy day. Again.
Captain Lee hears Rhylee back talking Ross and calls him up to the wheelhouse and tells him he needs to put a stop to that. Meanwhile, the crew is down two people and they are all getting really tired. Meanwhile, the guests asked for simple comfort food, a burger and fries and got… lamb sliders and truffle fries and other oddities. The next morning they had scrambled eggs with truffles and they loved it. I am planning to have grits with truffle butter and bacon tomorrow morning, because I’m trying to move the heart disease along.
The guests all leave very happy with their trip. The tip was good. Captain Lee told them to get to work and there would be no shore leave that night but he had a full day of R & R planned for them at a resort the next day.
The new stew is starting the day before the day off and will be bunking with Adrian. She’s Canadian and a bit over qualified. She immediately complained about everything including how poorly the beds were made– by Kate and Josiah. So they already hate her. And she is rather annoying.
The crew has a barbecue on the pier and everyone gets to drink from the ship’s bar. I’m still not used to that. Rhylee is hoping for an ally in Laura. All the guys are hitting on Laura. Adrian is throwing Ashton under the bus for being a man whore and he’s pissed about that.
Le Meridien seems quite lovely. During a conversation between Adrian and Laura we find out that his father was 80 when he passed away.
Laura never shuts up so Kate and Josiah take off and ditch her and everyone else. Rhylee is all too happy to scoop her up, but she is going to have to do some cockblocking of Ashton first. Ross has a new appreciation of Rhylee when he sees her in a bikini on the beach.
Oh! It’s Ashton who is not showing up on WWHL tonight. I wonder if he is suing Bravo”
Ross makes the moves on Rhylee as soon as they get back to the cabin. They are totally going to hook up. But they haven’t yet. They are getting along much better.
The primary is a single woman and her friends who are having birthdays. Someone is gluten-free. They want a lot of tequila at all times. Seems like an easy bunch.
We get a hot new deck hand, Tyler who is rooming with Rhylee. Kate made a mistake giving Adrian Laura as a roommate. I expect her to change bunks with Tyler soon.
Laura drops an entire tray of champagne glasses right before the guests arrive. Shortly after the guests arrive, this happens.
You know it is bad when you see the real deck crew on camera.
