Nothing on Bravo recorded tonight which I thought a bit odd. It looked like they were just running old Below Deck Med stuff. But, as it turns out episode two of the Aussie version comes on at nine. So Below Deck Down Under recap it is. I’m praying the Motrin kicks in soon. I’m so grumpy I am annoying myself. 🙁
Chef Ryan Takes Assholery To New Limits
We begin episode two with a very scary attempt to the the yacht out of the marina before low tide. The guests are super excited to be at sea. But, they are also very tired and can’t stay awake to really enjoy it. After a good night sleep for most of them, it’s time for breakfast. Chef Ryan announces that he will tell the guests what they are having for breakfast and they all will get the same thing. I mean all chefs are egotistical assholes but this one is BEYOND. Last season, was it Marcos who had a group of guests where everyone had long preference sheets and wanted each plate made to order. He got it done. At least the guests loved his breakfast.
And with that, they are off to snorkel on the Great Barrier Reef. I’m fine staying out of the ocean and watching them on TV. Tumi does STUNNING table settings. I would love to have my back in that hot tub! Meanwhile, Ryan is ready to serve lunch. Never mind that the guests are still in the hot tub! The Chief Stew will tell you when the guests are at the table. He is such a dick. Dinner is formal. Dude made beef tacos. The guests loved it. Captain Jason is no Captain Lee when it comes to pretending that dinner with the guests is fun. Who was that sucking down whipped cream from the can? Wasn’t there a male stew? I’m so confused.
On To The Crew Meeting
Why is Benny so terrified to bringing in the anchor? On the other hand, I’ve never seen them have to crawl in a tiny hole to do it. That was a quick trip, but the envelope looks BIG! But first, Captain Jason wants to address the communication between the chef and the stews. He really doesn’t go into much. Then, says that the deck crew needs to be three or four steps ahead of the game. That certainly did not happen. The Tip was $16,230 US. That’s $1,352 each. Also, why is Captain Jason washing dishes? The stews are to busy flirting with them to do their jobs? Magda was literally fondling her own breasts while talking to him! WTF?
Captain Jason will be giving out an “award” at the end of every charter. It appears to be for the biggest fuck up of the charter. So Benny has to wear a glittery disco ball motorcycle helmet on their first night out. He’s pissed. At dinner, Benny doesn’t wear it, but he does share that he recently lost both of his parents. Captain Jason arrives after that sad announcement and immediately asked where the helmet is. After the captain leaves, Benny and Jamie have a semi-rational conversation about Benny’s failure on the first charter. Jamie is actually being very decent to Benny. Benny mocks Jamie in his confession and says he is just trying to instill fear. Nope. He just wants you to do your job. Benny is a dick. He needs to be fired.
Next week there are alarms going off and lots of running around.
