I’m so confused. I can’t even remember the last time I recapped this. This show seems to be cancelled but not cancelled. I’m going to do my best to do a Below Deck Down Under recap, but I don’t even remember this show. I remember the hot captain, but not the show. After more than twelve hours of straight sleep with minimal bathroom breaks, I’m good to go. I do think I might have some sort of long covid though. I wear out very quickly.
Okay I have started this recap three times and for some reason it is not saving. So, I shall try, try again The only thing I remember about these guests is the weird girls who only eats scrambled eggs and avocado. The guests are sick of every course of every meal being fish. I love fish. But, if I were on a luxury yacht, I’d prefer the chef to show me everything in his bag of tricks. On to day two of this trip. Good grief these people are dicks. Is it even possible to burn the milk when the milk comes out of one of those fancy coffee machines? Oh, she microwaved the milk. These people sure are miserable to be on such a lovely cruise. Finally, the crew gets them off the boat and out to scuba dive. Something tells me they will complain about that too.
Dave actually decides to give the guests what they want for lunch. Shockingly, they are happy. I’m about half way through the episode and so far all I have to say is Dave is a dick and so are the guests. This is not a pleasant episode even with the dive scenes. Then, Benny almost wrecked the tinder. The guests wanted a nautical dinner on day two, so um…. fish it is? The guests hate the garden salad. Benny just sucks as a deckhand. It’s pathetic. One of the guests wants her seafood shelled for her. Seriously? Where does this type of behavior fly?
Benny Can’t Handle The Truth
Not only does Benny suck donkey balls at being a deckhand. He ignores his bosun, Jamie when he tries to teach him things. Then he storms off like a toddler who didn’t get a cookie. This whole season is full of awful people. The guests suddenly are seafood fans again. I keep forgetting Magda exists. Dave is so condescending to Aesha who is earning whatever tip they may get for everyone. Dave just makes things worse. Aesha basically does the breakfast. And FINALLY, they get the assholes off the boat. On the way out they complain about the food and the coffee with burnt milk. They also give side tips to some and not others. Brittani and Tumi got nothing. Captain Lee would never allow this to stand and the tips would all be pooled.
Most of them chose to add the tip to the pot anyway. Brittani is butt hurt about the tips. Captain Jason talks to Jaime about how to manage Benny, who is totally incompetent. They got about $1,400 plus an extra two hundred from the pooled side tips. Aeisha got the idiot award and disco helmet for messing up the guest’s cappuccino. Is there some rule that Benny can’t get it every week? Because, come on!
Everyone heads to shore for dinner and drinks. Mostly, drinks. Aesha wears the glitter helmet. Benny asks Jaime if he likes him. Jaime explains that he needs to listen to directions and be more careful with the tinder. Jaime is ready to fire him. That should have happened last week.
