Moving straight for the Below Deck Reunion recap that took forever, to the Below Deck Sailing Yacht recap is a lot! Especially when I don’t even have all the sailors names straight yet. That said, I am dying to see how this episode goes with the crazy charter guests and the impromptu wedding. Plus, we need a graduation celebration for the two younger female guests. So let’s get right to it!
Third stew Georgia is working her first late night and is a bit nervous about service. Madison, the second stew says being second stew is just like being chief stew but at the same time you are also doing the third stew job because you have to train them. She thinks very highly of herself now doesn’t she? Confidence is a good thing I suppose. Whatever it is Madison is on should carry her through all her difficult duties.
Please Plan A Wedding For This Evening…
Adam is doing a great job with the food. Parker likes hanging out with Adam and the stews. The engineer, Byron,also likes being where the action is, so we see him pitching in to juice oranges. Jenna is busy reorganizing the ship in military fashion. Lord knows it needs it but Ciara, who lives on the boat seem to feel a bit violated. I could see that.
Ah tonight’s dinner service gets the graduation bit out of the way with a cake. Really? Just a a cake? No party? The cake was amazing looking. Oh Madison is on late nights, not Georgia. That makes more sense. Georgia can do early shift. Of can she?
The next morning, Jenna is tasked with planning a wedding. They want it on the same day they requested it. The groom, Guy, is already getting wasted at breakfast. The bride wants a dress, a stylist a make-up artist and a hair dresser. They are not getting married until 8 pm and Guy, is drinking tequila shots non-stop. What could possibly go wrong here?
Love Is In The Air
Adam and Jenna have formed a mutual admiration society. It is only a matter of time until they hook up.
Love may be in the air, but the sails are not. There is some sort of kerfuffle with the donkey dick or something. This is problematic because according to Captain Glenn, people who book sailboats expect to…you know…sail. And right now that is not possible. Then Captain Glenn climbs the mast himself and saves the day. It’s time to sail! Sadly, no one has prepared the interior for sailing so things will fly everywhere soon. On the exterior, Ciara and Paget are arguing. These two can’t be in the same department. Paget admits he has anger issues. No love in the air on deck either it seems. Parker’s personality is…adolescent.
Dressing The Bride…
It’s five pm, three hours before the wedding and Georgia is offering drunken Guy drinks before he even slurs out a request.
The stylist brings there looks and she chooses a white shorts set. She oddly mentioned than to Guy before the stylist even arrived. Are these her clothes? It seems unlikely a stylist was on hand to pull white looks at a moments notice.
With less than an hour until the wedding the bride and groom get into a huge fight. I do not think this is staged. She is screaming at him for being drunk and walking in on her in the shower. He wonders where she has been all day. Where the hell do you think she has been? You are on a boat! She says she is not getting married because he is a “fucking psycopath.” Um was he a fucking psychopath yesterday? Or during the first part of your journey? Because perhaps you might have noticed and factored that into your decision to marry him.
Captain Save A Ho!
In something we would never see on the original Below Deck, Captain Glenn and Parker go down to break things up with the betrothed couple. I guess Captain Glenn is worried about the safety of the bride. She tells him everything is fine, her fiance is just drunk. The bride asks the captain to give them a minute. Meanwhile, Captain Glenn let’s us know he will restrain any guest who gets violent. Parker stays outside the door listening for any further trouble.
It is 45 minutes past the planned wedding time. Adam has prepared a Greek buffet. Perhaps dinner first would be a good idea. I wondered if you can actually get married when you are super drunk. Then I remember all of those chapels in Vegas. The wedding looks doubtful and the Greek dancers for the reception are at a total loss as to what is going on. Is there a wedding or not? No one knows. Just play some Greek music and dance around festively in a non wedding sort of way.
Let’s Call The Whole Thing Off
The bride did get into her wedding get up. And by that I mean she is wearing white. But this whole thing is a clusterfuck. Meanwhile, Guy is drunk on the phone with someone saying he has to get the fuck off the boat. Then he finally shows up for dinner in all white. The Greeks play music and dance and leave the boat. Number of marriages? Zero.
The next morning the flirting between Adam and Jenna continues. Georgia has a lovely singing voice. She sings while ironing below deck. She is an aspiring musician. Guy, shockingly chooses water as his morning beverage. Everyone leaves the boat sober and happy. Captain Glenn gives the crew a debriefing and compliments them on their work. The guests left them $20K which is $2,200 each. Except it is not. There are eight of them that we know about and it seems like they divided it nine ways. So either there is someone we don’t know about on board, or someone gets a double tip.
Dinner With Captain Glenn
This is Parker’s first time in Europe! He must be a bit overwhemed! The Captain takes everyone out to dinner. Georgia flirts with Paget and Ciara is not amused. Jenna says she gets really out of control when she drinks wine. Then she drinks wine. Captain makes everyone go back to the boat. Everyone gets ready to party on the boat. They all try to fit in the hot tub. Parker plays the ukulele while Georgia sings. Adam and Jenna get all over each other so everyone else heads to bed. Byron says that the chef and chief stew hooking up is a recipe for disaster and he has front row seats.
Next week: More Greek themed adventures, this time in togas. Ciara and Paget continue to fight. Jenna is embarrassed about her drunken hookup with Adam.
