'Below Deck's Adrienne Gang & Madison Stalker On Elizabeth's Firing

It's rough seas ahead for one Below Deck crew member. In this week's episode "Don't Cry For Me Antingua," Elizabeth's charter finally came to an end after a turbulent season, tensions continued to rise between Rachel and Francesca, and one table setting was less than luxurious.

Former Below Deck chief stew, Adrienne Gang, and special guest, Below Deck Sailing Yacht stew Madison Stalker, break down the episode, weigh in on Elizabeth's firing, and address the episode's very underwhelming decor.

On Elizabeth's "Shocking" Firing

After a season of constant feedback from her chief stew, Elizabeth was finally fired from duty on the My Seanna. Despite regularly receiving warnings from her superior, Elizabeth was shocked by the decision, claiming on Watch What Happens Live that she thought she, Francesca, and Captain Lee were going to just discuss what the next steps were of her role on the boat would be.

Adrienne: Elizabeth doesn't live in reality. When Francesca had taken the time or the energy to talk to her, none of it stuck. Francesca sat down with her nicely, she sat down with her a little bit more firmly, she made comments to her throughout the entire season. But people like Elizabeth are going to continually victimize themselves, especially when they're talking to people external to the situation, because they want sympathy. They want someone to tell them that it's not their fault. ... It occurs to me that she's just never going to listen to someone that is as direct as Francesca, who is going to tell her like, "Look, you're failing at your job. And I need you to fix that, otherwise you have to leave."
