Sorry for the delay in this week’s Below Deck Sailing Yacht Recap. On the day it airs there was a two hour episode of The Bachelor and The Voice. These are two shows that I quietly watch without you when I get the time. I am often behind so no spoilers please, that means no comments, not emails, etc. Thanks. Now, let’s get into this week’s episode. It looks kind of dramatic!
We begin with Paget being an asshole to Ciara. Fights in costumes, in this case togas, are usually fun. However, Paget is just an idiot. Also, I have no idea why Captain Glenn decided to put the couple on the deck together. They do kiss and makeup before going to bed though.
Someone Is Getting Docked
They finally have enough wind to do some real sailing. Perhaps more wind than the crew would like. The guests are thrilled however. Jenna doesn’t want to serve breakfast because of the wind and tilt of the boat. But, the guests are hungry. So breakfast it is. Adam has other ideas though. He decides to go tell Captain Glenn he would like to take down the sails that just went up so he can cook and the guests can eat. This has to be production, right? Adam can’t possibly think he is in charge of the sails.
Plus, this is the last day for these guests. They are literally sailing to the drop off point. The high winds do make for a difficult docking though. While Ciara does most of the work, she can’t do it all by herself. Parker has no idea what he is doing and rather than help him out, Paget just strikes a pose on deck while holding a walkie.
He says helpful things like,”It is going to be choppy going in to the dock.” Even I can see that. When things start going awry, he just barks orders instead of putting down the walkie and lending a hand. Captain Glenn continues to ask for information, but apparently actually using the walkie isn’t something Paget feels like doing either. Paget blames third deckhand Parker. #Production
Targets Are Set Up: It’s Parker On Deck and Georgia On Interior
The charter guests leave happy. Paget and Ciara seem to hug it out despite Paget’s assholery. Is Paget from South Africa? At the debriefing meeting, Captain Glenn is supportive as usual. He does mention the communication issues on deck. Everyone gets $1,300. Adam acts like that was not enough for his troubles. Has Adam always been kind of a dick? I don’t remember him from Below Deck other than the whole onions storyline by production. I do know he usually hooks up on the boat though, and that is happening again. He’s also bitching about is bunkie, Parker.
Jenna goes to tell Georgia that the laundry room is a shit show. Then Georgia has to explain to Jenna which is the washer and which is the dryer. This seems like storyline because Byron brought down a girl’s shirt that was left on his bed and gave it to Jenna. The point seemed to be to rile her up. Over nothing.
Getting Things Ship Shape Again
Everyone gets gussied up and heads out to dinner. Parker is down in the dumps over the mistake he made during docking. Georgia tries and fails to cheer him up. Paget is drinking a lot while Ciara is not. She is hoping for some “quality time” for the two of them later. Adam is getting shitfaced .I seem to recall him doing that on Below Deck. Parker is in a low place and Madison tries to be there for him and they fall asleep in the crew mess. No women were sexually assaulted on the night’s shore leave.
Madison and Georgia snuggle in the bed talking about how awful Jenna is. She won’t tell them how she wants things done. She just wants them to do it and then get criticized. Georgia whispers, “She doesn’t know the difference between the washing machine and the dryer.” Madison cracks up. Meanwhile, Jenna finds reasons to be in the Galley. At the preference sheet meeting things seem pretty easy. However, there is a one month old baby girl coming onboard.
Jenna hassles Georgia’s over Adam’s black jacket. Where is it? Why isn’t it ironed? Georgia says she hasn’t received it. Then, Jenna goes to Adam and asks if he took his jacket to the laundry. He did not. He has others. Yet, this is a failure on Georgia’s behalf. Georgia cries as she tries to talk herself into sucking it up. Jenna laughs as she tells Madison she made her cry.
Adam was thrilled to have no dietary restrictions for this charter. But, the new mom has some dietary restrictions now that she is breast feeding that she didn’t have when she filled out the paperwork, “no eggs, no nuts, no dairy, no soy, no coffee.” Cut to Adam making a cheese and nut platter.
This baby is absolutely perfect and seemingly no trouble at all. These guests are great too and are taking advantage of all that is on offer. They are even wake-boarding behind the tender. Adam is thrilled to have Japanese beef in Greece. I’m pretty sure Greece is a bit closer to Japan than the US is. He’s thrilled with his upscale meat and potatoes. This is a sure sign from editing that the guests won’t like it.
Who Knew There Were Matchmakers In Hell?
Jenna seems to be dong absolutely nothing except for flirting with Adam. Or bitching with Adam about how behind the other stews are. She gives Madison no heads up that she is going to go with the guest to campfire. Madison is left to quickly do turndowns. When she complains about Georgia she says she will probably cry again. Adam says, “Good, break her down to fucking pulp.” Madison hears. Jenna says she wants to “fucking pummel: Georgia. Adam says she need to fire her. These two are a match made in hell. No wonder the word is that they are still together.
Next week, the wind really kicks up. It’s too much for the poor baby. More assholery
