I don’t think I have ever been so excited for a WWHL Recap ever! It’s two of my favorite people! Captain Lee and Kiko! Kiko is Skyping in from his around the world cruise gig! They are currently in Martinique, miles and miles and miles away from Sandy. Kiko is having the best Covid quarantine EVER! Kiko is the nicest guy in the world. Andy keeps trying to get him to trash talk Tom, but he won’t do it. In fact he says he was pulling for Tom to do well.
Andy asks Captain Lee what he thinks about Malia wanting to change all the sleeping situations so that she could bunk with Tom. He says he leaves that all up to the discretion of the Chief Stew who makes all the decisions about who is assigned to bunk with whom. He does say that if a couple is hired as a couple that if possible accommodations are made for them to bunk together. But if a partner comes on in the middle of the season, everyone else should not have to move around to accommodate them. I totally agree.
It’s The Stud Of The Sea!
Andy asks Captain Lee about having prescriptions on the boat, especially in regard to Kat. He said all he needed to do was see the prescription and that is that. He is not a doctor and if people are prescribed medication then it’s fine. There was no BS about having to be locked away and the captain needs to okay each dose. Because that is some stupid shit that Captain Lee and Malia made up. Captain Lee seems hint that Malia should not have gone rifling through Hannah’s things. Captain Lee implies that Tom’s temper tantrums over less than stellar provisions was par for the course in yachting. You just have to make it work.
Captain Lee says it was great to have Eddie back as bosun on the upcoming season of Below Deck. I know I posted some spoilers about this season but I can’t seem to find them for the life of me. Clearly Captain Lee missed having Kate on the season. Francesca has some big shoes to fill. I would not want to be her. Captain Lee and Kate go together like peas and carrots and I could see Captain Lee getting frustrated with Francesa for not have the ability to read his mind like Kate does. Apparently, there may be a couple who gets sent off the boat together.
Captain Lee Spills The Tea!
Wow! Captain Lee says the new chef Rachel is probably the best, most knowledgeable chef he has ever worked with on a yacht. I’m getting teary eyed so somewhere Rachel is probably crying. That is high praise from Captain Lee. He also says that they really didn’t know the gravity of the pandemic because they were so isolated. The started filming in mid February and were for the most part blissfully unaware of the gravity of the situation. In the previews, Captain Lee is seen screaming at a charter guest. He says that was a career first for him. He has never spoken to a charter guest like that before. In the clip below it appears that the guest just jumped off the boat randomly to swim.
