I finally caught up with the first three episodes on Peacock and I'm LOVING it. For some reason I can't get into Below Deck: Sailing Yacht so this is filling the preference sheet-sized hole in my heart.
I have one complaint though. It is not about how Captain Jason (who I am told is known in the industry as "Captain Big Dick") or even about Chef Ryan who doesn't seem to know that the job he signed up for entails serving other people, not them catering to his whims.
My problem is with deckhand Britini (rhymes with "martini"). I'm sorry but that is not a name. Well, it is. It is her name. She seems like a great gal and a good worker, but I can't handle it. We've seen lots of crazy names on reality TV before, but this is a first. But no matter how much I hate it (and it is the worst thing to happen on Below Deck since Eddie's affair with Rocky) even she deserves the respect of her coworkers saying it right. Yeah, I'm talking to you Ben. (Also, Culver is on name notice as well, but I was too distracted by his body.)
I think the table scaping and the themed decorations are cheesy as hell and I’d rather have nothing at all (but would prefer flowers and candles) to the Party City sh*t they throw out there.
I’m sorry but if I’m paying $250k or whatever it is for a few nights on a mega yacht, don’t stick oversized silly playing cards on a wall and call it a poker night.
It’s been an incredible season. The relationship drama is on point, the guest drama has been fun and not too cringy, and the work drama has been real/authentic.
But what I’m enjoying most this season is the camaraderie between the stews. It’s a reminder that a cast that gets along can be just as enjoyable if not moreso to watch than one that doesn’t. I’m loving their banter and friendships!! It’s so fun to watch compared to Hannah and even Kate, who sewed a little distrust and drama among their teams.
Lastly, the setting in Malta is spectacular.
If you’re not watching you 100% should. 10/10 this season.
I can’t stop thinking about that kiss Kyle had with the guest… the one where he ran out of the cab to go kiss that guy. Here’s why: the drone footage of it all. We saw that kiss from every angle, including the sky!, which makes me think it was very much planned.
I love Below Deck because it feels like the least scripted of the reality shows on Bravo, so this stuck with me!
