I’m really trying to get caught up tonight so I am going to knockout this Below Deck recap and call it a night. I may try to watch The Voice with Banjo first. we shall see. It’s kind of our thing. I think he can tell I am unwell because he’s staring at me a lot and staying nearby. We watched a bit of The Voice already so I am already behind. #Pressure
The kids on this charter continue to be amazing. These guests are great. But, they have really high expectations and the crew seems to be falling apart. Fraser tells us that he is ready for another relationship. However, he last one was the love of his life, a man who was ten years older than him and they were just at different life stages. It’s the 75th birthday of the primary charter. After the watersports they have an AMAZING Mexican lunch. They rave over Racheal’s food.
Oh Yeah It’s 80’s Night!
Shortly after Captain Lee told Eddie that there cannot be anything else flying off the boat, the trampoline gets lose and flies across the water. Wes retrieves it on a jet ski. Heads will roll for this. Meanwhile, Rachel is a brand new person this season. She’s amazing. Meanwhile, Rayna continues to say colorist? Reverse colorist? Things when she tells Wes she doesn’t date light skinned guys. I guess they cast one horrible crew member every season. Congrats, Rayna, it’s you. Then one of the number five balloons goes overboard.
Dinner is incredible once again, lots of steak and seafood, but for some reason on this mega-yacht there are a lot of things they don’t have for service. Like, tongs. But what about serving forks? Heather can’t figure out why “nobody is coming up with a solution.” THAT IS YOUR JOB HEATHER. What exactly are you doing? You are no Kate Chastain. The guests and Captain Lee are thrilled with the final dinner. It really does look incredible. The crew puts on their 80’s looks to sing happy birthday. Clearly, these children have no idea what people actually wore in the 80’s. Also, they cannot even sing Happy Birthday. Y’all know my issues with facial recognition. One of the guys kissed CAPTAIN LEE on the cheek. I would guess only Eddie would have that kind of balls? Captain Lee was not Amused.
Everyone On The Crew Is Coming Unglued
The deck crew seems pissed that Heather didn’t acknowledge or appreciate their help. Heather and Fraser are both pissed at Jessica. But there are also a lot of friendships with the crew. The next morning Rachel struggles with scrambled egg whites. There is a reason that there is more often than not an egg challenge on Top Chef. It is apparently the hardest thing to cook. I would not know, I don’t eat eggs. But, for the 12 days after I go to the grocery store, Banjo gets an egg with his dinner. Usually raw (shutup, it’s fine) or sunnyside up. But, Rachel’s French toast continues to slay. Docking went well.
The best guests of the season are sadly leaving. They did not leave an envelope with the tip. The had the cute kid handcuffed to a box full of cash. That is a good sign. I’m cheap so I would never leave thousands of dollars in tips for anyone. Captain Lee is very happy with the crew. The tip was $25,000! That just seems insane to me. Captain Lee complimented Jessica at the meeting and Fraser is pissed. I am starting to lose my affection for Fraser. He does complain a lot, but so do I. But, still. Being pissed because Captain Lee complimented another stew is not a reason to be a little bitch.
Crew Night Out
Wes seems to have a crush on Jessica. It’s cute. Fraser has a thing for Jake. Jake for whatever reason get butt nekkid at the outdoor bar. LOL. Oh there is a pool that he wants to skinny dip in. Jake strips down to his Calvin’s and goes in too. Then, they finally corral everyone into the vans. On the ride home, Jake and Fraser make out! lol. Then back on the yacht, Eddie manages to set his hair on fire.
That actually happened to me once in college. It smells like death. We were all cutting class, and I was also a senior in high school and a freshman in college at the same time. So by day, I was the nerdy girl in high school that no one liked that much. But, after taking two required senior courses to graduate, I was taking a full load of college classes and I was a hot commodity! lol. Everyone was smoking pot, which is just not my thing, but I was trying to fit in. And the lighter I used sort of exploded and all the guys were beating me on the head to put it out. Um, “Good times? lol. HA! Everyone complains about the burning hair smell. It really is awful.
Eventually, they all pass out. No one is ready to get up the next day and some are still drunk. Jake doesn’t remember making out with Fraser. Fraser doesn’t either. Next week looks interesting to say the least.
