The Tahiti season of Below Deck is wrapping up and the crew remains divided between men and women, with no resolution in sight.
Below Deck started off with a pep-talk from Captain Lee, except there was no pep in his talk. It was more of a “don’t mess with me” talk sprinkled with light inspiration for the final charter. “If anybody thinks that they are safe and that I won’t fire someone in the middle of a charter, they don’t know me.” You can watch the pep-ish talk on BravoTV.com. In other words, shape up or ship out.
And with that, the crew did their best. The charter guests were not having it from the get-go, and Kate Chastain’s notorious resting [expletive] face (RBF) came back to bite her in the butt once again. In the end, the charter guests were on their best behavior in comparison to the men on the crew.
Brian de Saint Pern said, “Can’t be a nice guy all the time,” even though he has not been a nice guy…more than 5% of the time. That should be the deck crew’s mantra this season: Can’t be a nice guy more than 5% of the time.
Ashton Pienaar said that he’s still trying to please Rhylee Gerber, “The junior deckhand with the most to say.” Though no one is happy, the crew is doing their best just to make it through the charter unscathed. This episode was full of little jabs from the men, but girls were too busy working to do anything about it.
This was the final episode before the finale, and the crew is set to have one final blow out after these charter guests leave. But will this be Ashton’s last time on our TV screens for good? I guess we’ll find out next week.
Below Deck is on Bravo every Monday at 9 PM ET.
