I want to see the gay porn star hook up with someone on the boat.
The person I was watching with said that Aleks has the dead eyes of a sociopath. Also, I feel like I've seen Sam on an MTV show before.
It looks like there's another thread... It didn't show up in my search. We can stick with that one, R1.
Nobody watched this show? It was my favorite new Bravo show and it ended it's season last night.
I didn't catch the finale but I too really like this show. I really like the British chef. I hope they bring it back. Were the ratings decent?
I had no idea that David Bradberry has a porn background. In fact, I assumed it was a DL fantasy, until I Googled him. On "Below Deck" he's so cool that "butter wouldn't melt in his mouth", as the saying goes. On the other hand, his mouth sure as Hell wasn't chilly back in his porn days.
The gay porn star said he did porn because he needed the money. I don't get why these guys have to lie. Just be honest and say, "I need attention. That's why I'm on reality TV now. I like and need the attention."
What purpose did porno David serve being on this show? He just sat around smiling his fake Botox smile and watched the other castmembers get drunk and argue. He had no storyline what-so-ever. What a waste of space.

There are a lot of gay porn stars on Bravo. Two is too many.I think Andy Cohen is playing into the stereotype that gay men are porn addicts and so they will tune in. Or maybe there is a hint of truth about porn addiction and gay men. I'm not sure. Datalounge makes me wonder sometimes.
Lets' not turn this into another Andy bashing thread. We are talking about Below Deck. David was sweet thru the entire show, porn past or not and his lover showing up last night was really touching.
What the heck is the appeal of this show? It gets very good ratings, and I can't understand it.
So, with the gay porn star, was he supposed to be "straight" fucking guys or something? Because he's gay and that throws a wrench into the lives of gay men who believe that shit.
Is no one watching Season 2? It's fucking awesome.
I was so rooting for Andrew in the beginning, but now he has proven to be a liar and a major fuck-up. He needs to go.
Eddie is still cute, but not as lighthearted as before.
Ben is still a dickwad and Kat is still a selfish bitch. No wonder they're fuckbuddies.
I liked Kate until this week's episode. She has major bitchface, and she doesn't seem to understand that she is on the mega-yacht to provide the best service possible.
I have a feeling that when she watches herself back after the season is done, she will be doing major damage control ala Heather Dubrow. Nobody will hire her after this show.
I like Kelly and his sister. I also think that Kelly is deeply in the closet. He sets off my gaydar like a 5 alarm fire! I laughed when his sister (who is so sweet!) said that she used to dress him up in girls clothes and makeup. Oh, dear.
My mouth dropped when that Georgia lady gave the crew a 15,000 dollar tip. She's awesome! Little did she know that bitchface Kate and lazy ass Kat were talking crap about her behind her back.
Fucking awesome, r12??? You need to get out more.
R13, please go the fuck away.
You are a Debbie Downer on every single thread. If you don't like the subject matter, then just move the fuck on.
Unfortunately, you have this strange need to make people feel bad about liking something.
Not only is it sociopathic, it's also quite pathetic.
I never concern myself with other peoples' likes and dislikes. I just concern myself with... myself.
I guess in your case, it just makes you feel better to make other people feel bad. You're disgusting.
That Georgia woman was a horror. I can't imagine working for these tasteless, ghastly, classless arrivistes with no manners.
Kate looks far older than her actual age, whatever it is. She's not aging well. (What is she, in her early 30's, if that.)
Kelly has a fantastic body and BDF but he's got a set of ears on him.
I find Eddie adorable.
I enjoy Kate's bitchiness, I would probably have the same attitude as she does if I had that job.
Andrew is a total idiot, with privileged white boy entitlement issues. If this wasn't a tv show he would've been fired but they're keeping him on because his incompetence is such a major plot point.
When is someone going to "drink on charter" so there can be some actual drama?
How much do they make for each charter? $11K they only got 1K each? That's not buying you Birkin bags Kate or facial fillers. Kate is hunting for a sugar daddy and she is pretty fetching, wonder why she hasn't succeeded? Bitch face?
Eddie put on some weight this season.
Andrew could be gay too.
I think Kelley may be gay too. I think he could go both ways at least.
Kelly is the hottest guy in the bunch, although he's quite awkward. He's always making strange faces, and he seems to be emotionally fragile.
This latest charter was awful.
The "Primary" customer was really mean to Kate, calling her bitchy.
The crew has a nasty attitude, but they all work really hard. I can't imagine waiting on people hand and foot and serving their every need and whim, from early in the morning to late at night.
You get very little sleep, and you work like a dog when you're awake. It takes a hearty person to be part of a yacht crew. Most people would fold, just like Andrew did.
Btw, was this Hollywood guy gay? He brought along some of his blonde female friends, and a couple of straight people, but the Primary seemed to be there with his boyfriend, who was sitting next to him at breakfast.
Anyone know who he is?
I love Kate. She's professional, does a great job, seems to get along with the other crew members and is not to be fucked with.
I want to know what went on in Kelly's childhood/past that's made him so fragile. His sister seems to be carrying around a lot of guilt about leaving him when he was younger.
But I do find their relationship to be very sweet and genuine.
Didn't think I'd like this crew as much as last seasons but I actually think this season is better.
Kelly is hot - but I love actually all the guys. It was right of the customer to comment on Kate's bitchface. He was professional about it and Kate actually loved him right before hand.
Kate does have fillers and botox and is scarily thin. I wonder what her story is.
I just realized that Ben the Englishman completely reminds me of Bear Grylls.
Ben's fuckable but he also seems like a maniac.
I loved Kate's story about how she was kept by an older woman. She had a sugar mama! And her sugar mama was kept by a much older sugar daddy!
I can easily see Kate with a woman. Maybe Adrienne the closet lesbian from last season?
I ran into an old friend last year, after she disappeared for 4-5 years when she worked as a "yachtie" or whatever they call themselves.
Season 1 had just ended and I asked her if she ever ran into anyone on the show. She said yes: Ben and Adrienne.
She said she worked on 1 charter with each of them, but not at the same time. For the rest of the time she did it, she'd run into them often whenever they were "off charter." She said the group of "yachties" was actually small and most people knew each other. Her gossip, if you can call it that:
-Ben was one of the nicest, coolest people she met during her whole 4-5 year experience. Yes, he could be a dick in the kitchen, but he took his job more seriously than anyone else on the boat and off charter he was someone everyone wanted to be friends with. Also interesting is that she said the chefs on these boats usually make more $/salary than the captain.
-Adrienne was a regular "stew" and a complete slut and drunk, basically the complete opposite of how she was on the show and did much worse than they ever showed Kat doing. She wasn't the chief stew, but she was engaged to the captain of the boat she was working on so she didn't work very hard and none of the other crew could give her shit about it. The most interesting part: despite being engaged to the ship's captain, she never missed going out "off charter," getting wasted and fucking any and every guy she could. My friend said she was nice enough, but she was never considered anyone's friend b/c all she did was get wasted and look for her fuck of the night. Like the men she fucked, she wasn't particular about where they did it, which was usually the bar's bathroom or anywhere on the beach.
Sorry for the long post but I never hear 1st hand gossip about anyone on these shows, even if they're low budget reality shows.
Adrienne came off as one of those insecure people who was in way over her head which is why no one respected her. They could smell the fear. Isn't she featured in coming attractions for the rest of this season? Maybe she'll replace Kate if Daddy Bear Captain fires her.
Telling Kate she was coming off as a bitch was way out of line. She's there to do a job, not smile and dance every time you're bored.
Most of these guests really seem like assholes. I want to know where they get their money.
Kate is easily in her mid-30's, possibly late. If she didn't have a frozen face she would probably smile much more. It was unprofessional of her to make the penis shape our of the throw but it was also out of bounds for the guest to say she looked like a bitch. She seems to run a tight ship. This career path seems kind of dead end to me unless the end game is finding a rich suitor.
Andrew was the only reason I watched that show. He needs to be kept as someone's toy.
Delicious, r24, thank you!
Eddie has gained some weight but he's still the cutest guy in my opinion.
There is something about Kelly's personality that I find annoying, maybe it's the fact that he laughs at his own commentary or maybe it's just the fauxhawk.
The charter guests seem to be getting progressively trashier, I feel sorry for Kate to have to deal with these awful people.
At first glance, it appeared Kate has a raging eating disorder. (No body fat, awful facial skin texture (too much sun instead?), dry, course hair, tightly wound/perfectionistic personality, etc.)
However, upon closer look, her body type possesses none of the tell-tale physical attributes, as her thin body type is natural.
One way to spot unnaturally thin people:
No matter how thin they are/become, in the front of the arm pit, between the arm pit and chest/breast, there's a distinct "V" fold of skin, where the arm pit/chest area separate. No matter how thin they become, it's highly likely there's a weight problem (over weight) somewhere in their family background. Chances are, they'll eventually grow in to it as well.
Check it out.
R30 do you have an eating disorder? Jesus.
I'd like to see the boat flip over & the entire crew eaten alive by sharks, on camera.
I'd love to know how much the guests pay to charter the yacht. The tips that are left are pretty sizeable so the cost per week must be really really expensive.
I've heard them mention the figure of 100K but that seems steep for a 3 day tour.
"my favorite new Bravo show."
Poster needs to go back to his classes to which he undoubtedly rode the short bus.
what a waste of human time and thought, Bravo.
R35 Compared to the rest of the shit on Bravo, this is class. It's not that bad. I've watched. Have you?
Capt. Lee looks like he just reeks of Polo by Ralph Lauren, like the rest of those old guys, sporting gold neck chains and bracelets.
I think I'm gonna puke just thinking of that possibility. Yuck, Gag, gag, gag . . .
Lol R37. Is Capt. Lee into the homosex? He has no wife or gf to speak of.
He seemed to take a liking to Andrew, haha.
Andrew is a colossal fuck up, and I'm wondering how he ever got past the Bravo screeners?
I mean, he had NO previous yachting experience, and as Eddie, Kelly, and Geneese mentioned, he could have really gotten hurt or hurt someone else.
That is a major screw-up by whoever cast Andrew on this show, and they should honestly be fired.
It's not like the Housewives, where it really doesn't matter. On the open ocean, if you don't have real experience, somebody could get hurt.
They had no choice but to fire Andrew.
R38, try not to lose too much sleep over it. The show is scripted just like every other Bravo "reality" show. The drama is fake and Andrew was right out of central casting.
R34 - I think it's more like $100K a week, but it depends on the boat.
That boat is pretty massive, so it'd be more than that. Probably $200K per week.
It seems like a huge waste of money - I just don't get the appeal. Sure all your food and drinks are included, but you're really just hanging out on a boat for several days.
I would get tired of that really quickly.
I can't wait for this weeks episode! Kate risked messing up everyone's tip making that rocket ship on the asshole's bed. Total loss of professionalism.
R12, that is a lot of writing for someone not concerned about R13's remarks about you needing to get out more.
Kelly's kiss on Sheneese was so fucking awkward. Like what he thought a straight guy would do. Oy.
He basically grabbed her like a caveman and gave her an unwanted kiss. She looked completely repulsed. And then he ran away after that, sensing that the kiss was not at all welcomed. AWK-WARD.
Eddie cracks me up. He's so deadpan in his comments. He takes his job very seriously, but he has a good sense of humor, too. I really like Eddie, and I want him to make me pizza.
It's also hard not to like Kate. She's such a contradiction. On the one hand, she's a hard assed, stone cold bitch. On the other hand, she's so sweet and vulnerable. I never know how to deal with those kind of people because they have a cold exterior and a soft interior, and you never know which one you're going to get.
Another good tip from a bunch of assholes. I can't even fathom someone giving 18,000 dollars as a "tip." It's kind of mind boggling.
Eddie needs a long, leisurely tongue bath!
And where do they get all the cash?? Who carries around 18K in cash?
I wonder how it normally works?
Kate gets bonus points from me for referencing Bitchy Resting Face. Fabulous!!
Kelley's kiss made me think he "really" is gay.
Why does Kat speak with a British accent on occasion? Is it from her time with Ben?
Kat wants to go to the bah!
I'm curious as to why men don't bunk with men and women with women. It just seems odd that Kelly and Jenese (?) are sleeping right on top of eachother. I think Kelly and Andrew should have shared a cabin. And Kelly should have taken the top bunk. If you know what I mean. And I think you do.
Bravo's website says Kate is 31. Anyone else think she's older?
[quote]Why does Kat speak with a British accent on occasion?
That's a Rhode Island accent with a soupçon of affectation, RR45.
