Tonight I have two recaps to do, this Below Deck Med recap and a 90 Day Fiance Recap. How different the two are. I feel like Below Deck Med will never end and really want to be put out of my misery. And tonight is the last episode of 90 Day Fiance The Other way before the mid-season hiatus and I’m already sad and hoping it comes back soon. Tonight Johnny Damon is back and I wonder if he got a bigger discount than usual because he was so unhappy with his last charter. See the second post about his last charter here. Check out the first link. Dalai Mama recapped it and it’s fantastic. It seems last time Johnny was there Sandy had fired another chef without a replacement. So third stew Anastasia had to sub in as chef.
Charter Guest Down!
I have a feeling I am going to be out of Riesens before this episode is over. I’ve gone from starving myself to eating my feelings. The latter is a lot more fun. We start with Aesha returning to the boat to be the second stew. We like her, right? Does Tom really have a Michelin star? Can we fact check that? Why is the boat going to Ibiza without the charter guests? Why would they board in Ibiza?
One of the charter guests is Adena, she has been on charter before but last time she was with “the Queen of Versailles” on her voyage. She is blind drunk and calling everyone to attempt to slur out that she is on the biggest yacht in Ibiza. Then she falls over flat on her face. She is bleeding all over the cushions. Lunch is a hit. Or should I say a home run. Sandy didn’t even lurk in the corner to ask what was wrong with it. Then it was toy time for everyone except Adena who is passed out.
Sandy Micromanages Tom
Rob’s ex-girlfriend has called him and she is going through a lot. Whatever it is has Rob checked out mentally and he stupidly admits this in front of Sandy and Malia. I am out of Riesens. 🙁 Sandy is back to pestering the perfectly content guests. Johnny has a thing about his food being very hot. So she is practically taking the temperature of his food. She’s so fucking obnoxious. He interference caused Johnny’s second course to be dropped entirely. She’s a nightmare. She keeps giving Tom running feedback on how he is doing while he is trying to work.
These guests drink a lot and the ladies fight when drunk. They would make great real housewives. Bugsy is doing a great job as chief stew and each tablescape is more elaborate than the next. The guests are happy and the crew is happy. Except for Rob who seems very stressed about whatever is going on with his ex. When Rob tells Jess in their bunk that he has been communicating with his ex, she gets in a huff and leaves the cabin. That trip to Bali together isn’t looking good. Apparently, Jess has anger issues and once destroyed and ex-boyfriend’s new house when he upset her.
The guests go to a huge end of season party in Ibiza and Aesha got to go with them. It seemed pretty outrageous with floats and dancers and tons and tons of people. Meanwhile, Sandy let those still on board go down the slide and play with the water toys. Alex takes Bugsy out on a jetski and professes his undying admiration for her. Rob slept in his bunk the whole time. Jess had some sort of panic attack.
Next week: Rob’s obsession with his ex is interfering with his ability to do his job and endangering the boat.
