It’s a shame that the last horrific season of Below Deck has seemed to taint the premiere of this new show. First seasons of Bravo shows are usually the best. With the exception of Chef Adam, none of this crew, not even the captain knows what to expect. There is a stunning sailboat, an attractive captain, a super obnoxious chief stew, and a hand full of green yachties! The charter guests are interesting and there is a couple that have been together for years that were both thrust into working together on the deck. It’s perfect! Adam even throws in just a tiny dash of misogyny (so far) for those who might miss that. Thanks to those of you who enjoy the show like I do for bearing with me with the delayed Below Deck Sailing Yacht recaps. There should be only one more week of that!
The bitchy chief stew on this show is different from all the other bitchy chief stews we have met because she doesn’t do fuck all on the boat. All she does is stand in the galley with Adam alternately flirting with him and mocking her stews. We begin with Adam suggesting that Jenna “can her ass” referring to a stew who Jenna literally takes pleasure in bringing to tears. Jenna announces that she is not a bitch. Adam laughs in her face because her being a royal bitch is why he is attracted to her.
There Is Scum On Top of The Stew
It’s time for the late night bonfire and Jenna tells Madison she is going to wait on guests there literally as people are preparing to get on the tender. That leaves poor Georgia stuck with the evil overlord. Overlady? Whatever. She’s evil. Paget is constantly flirting with Georgia and she should but a stop to that because of Ciara, who he has been sleeping with on the boat for years. But, dayum the girl needs something happy in her life. She’s basically Cinderella and Jenna and Adam are the evil stepsisters. Jenna didn’t do fuck all during the bonfire and Georgia had to do everything. This put Georgia behind on her actual duties in the laundry room. So now, Madison comes back from the bonfire and is stuck on laundry and she doesn’t understand why it’s not done. Madison goes to bed at 4:30 am. Georgia gets up and finishes the laundry.
The very green deckhand is basically worthless and can’t even manage to put on the right uniform at the right time and doesn’t think it matters. He spends most of his time chatting with people. And yet, he is telling Ciara what to do, and for some dumb reason she is doing it! Madison is frustrated when Georgia mentions the laundry not being done Jenna bitches at her and now Madison seems to have an issue with her. This is all Jenna’s fault.
Dinner With The Captain
Captain Glenn has been invited to dinner by one of the female guests, Sylvia. He is very uncomfortable being the center of attention. I would also like to point out that the baby is at the table sleeping like a perfect angel. We’ve had one night of crying but she sleeps quietly all day. The food continues to impress. Oh I spoke too soon. The baby cried just for a second.
The next day, the docking went well and the guests left happy. The tip was $14k. Jenna calls the vibe between,”shmexual shmention.” I don’t get it. But Adam just laughs and laughs. I heard a rumor that these two are still together. They deserve each other.
On shore, Madison and Georgia don’t include Ciara in their girl talk and she is feeling left out and hurt. To make things worse, Paget continues to flirt with Georgia right in front of her. Why is Madson trying to flirt with Parker? Girl, standards! At least, clueless Paget checks in with his girl, Ciara. But she decided not to tell him what is wrong. I’m going to guess that happens a lot. She’s a redhead though, and it will all come out in a huge torrent of words at some point. Madison is quietly weeping and Madison comes over to cheer her up. Apparently rubbing her face in her cleavage is enough to make her laugh.
Okay, I may have to renege on my recommendation of this show if we have to see Adam and Jenna making out.
Oh MY! Last minute drama! The captain is on shore and the boat is banging into the dock! Next week we have overgrown frat boys from New York. It looks like we will be a bit more misogyny! Because, Bravo. Thanks to those who are watching with me!
