It seems like Bravo is trying to mess with our DVR schedules again. They have been doing it with MDLLA, by making it an extra fifteen minutes of the actual show. But, I have a gut feeling that the reason tonight’s episode is an extra half hour of WWHL. Because the second airing is only an hour. This is how they force you to record WWHL whether you want to are not. At any rate, I’m kind of looking forward to this Below Deck Med recap. Mostly, because I am hoping that Pete gets fired and we don’t have to look at him anymore. But also because I spent hours today working on my tax return, and it’s still not done! I had such a sore brain I had to take a break. So let’s hope there isn’t a lot of screaming tonight!
Can I Get A Hand In Here?
We start with Jess and her smashed up hand. She probably has broken at least one finger by smashing it in a door. It’s fractured and in a splint. Not sure how she is going to be able to work.And neither is Sandy. One minute in and Pete is already been disgusting twice. Bugsy tells Malia that Pete is really being disgusting toward her. Malia says that she can take it to Captain Sandy. Captain Sandy calls Pete to the bridge and says she is considering letting him go. But she doesn’t. SIGH. Then, Malia calls him to the bow. Malia fires him as lead deck. Malia gets tough with him! Go Malia! Pete apologizes to Bugsy and that goes well.
The new charter guests already seem very high maintenance. This is going to be a clown festival. Kiko is unhappy that one of the guests is a vegan. I guess he may have to skip the Moqueca on this charter. Speaking of Moqueca, I made some over the weekend and it was delicious until the gremlins sabotaged it. Or something. I still don’t know how the disaster happened. Back to the guests, one of them already wants taste the juices before it is used in his vodka. He hated it. So why didn’t Hannah ask if they had any American juice when she ordered lemons. Kiko insinuates that Hannah needs to watch out for Bugsy after she pointed out the lack of lemons was Hannah’s fault. Well, it was. Then, Bugsy pleases the juice freak with her special homemade blend.
Mushrooms Get Their Own Script From Production
The charter guests are jerks who don’t think the jet ski rules apply to them. I never realized how high the slide is on this boat! That’s a no for me. The vegan seems to want a 12 course snack of vegan food. Bugsy rejected Kiko’s second batch of mushrooms as “too chewy.” Mushrooms are gross no matter how they are made. Party Pete is handling things very well and promises to be Professional Pete from now on. Um, shouldn’t he be professional at work all the time without having to be lectured multiple times and threatened with firing? He does get fired by Bravo though. Because, dickhead.
Dinner is allegedly delayed by the mushroom delivery. I am not buying the mushroom story, or the lemon story. It’s all really scripted. As usual Captain Sandy is play the role of restaurant manager. Speaks of which, she bought an old firehouse on the beach in Florida. She plans to open a restaurant with all “yachtie” servers. This is a really good time to be going into the restaurant business. Especially in Florida. And she has no clue about the restaurant business that I am aware of. It seems there are two vegans. But they love the food. The whole dinner table cheered for Kiko, even if they are a bit fake pissed about being late. Then, they didn’t have enough food. Kiko is beating himself up. This charter got off to a rocky start!
Next week: Rob takes over the role of douchebag. Food and service continues to be an issue. Kiko is heartbroken. The stews are not getting along so Captain Sandy is down Hannah’s throat.
