Nico and Kate are back but everyone else is new.
Is this show still fun trash? Or just trash?
Nico and Kate are back but everyone else is new.
Is this show still fun trash? Or just trash?
It's hilarious that they're promoting Kate as a "man eater" considering the last time we saw her, she was a muff eater.
No Chef Ben this season. :-(
It appears "Em's" has made an 'honest man' out of him.
The new chef is hot. I hope he doesn't turn out to be a douche as that would be a boner killer.
Do they break the boat this year? Of course, Bravo will save that for the finale episode.
Capt. Lee is Kate's surrogate Daddy; and Kate is Capt. Lee's surrogate trophy wife.
Not watching this lap of the series -
As long as that smiling jack ass Bobby is not there, I'm on board.
This "I lived off the grid for four months" girl is gonna get on my nerves
Are Ben and Emily still together?
Kate lived in Melbourne, FL. It's unclear from her Twitter if she has evacuated or not.
Lives not lived
This season isn't doing it for me.
Nico is cute but he can't carry a show all by himself. Kate is basically the only cast member that we're familiar with. Everyone else is a newbie, and I don't sense any compelling personalities.
It's funny because with this season of Below Deck Med, the only returnees were Hanner and Bobby, but I was instantly drawn in by Max, Wes, Adam, Malia and Capt. Sandy.
With this season of BD, they're making out Capt. Lee to be some kind of "star" (which he isn't), and Kate doesn't have much to go with because everyone else is new. Nico seems out of it because filming must have been right after his brother died.
And don't get me started on the new crew. They're not only green, but they're also complete vapid idiots.
BRAVO has been getting casting for shows all wrong, lately. First this horrid season of OC, and now Below Deck.
I say they should get the casting right the first time, even if it means postponing the season. Nobody wants to watch a dud.
Kate just confirmed on twitter that she evacuated to a hotel in Orlando.
I agree about the casting, but from the previews (I know, I know they only show the good stuff in the previews) it does look like some of the new cast ends up going a little crazy. Doesn't the chef get drunk and decide he wants to hook up with one of the steward-ESS-es?
So this woman always wanted to work on a yacht (TV show?) so she dumped her 8 year old daughter on the little girl's grandfather and said goodbye for 4 months?
Is that normal? Don't most mothers dread being away from their young kids?
Obnoxious gay men get drunk and handsy with the straight male crew members next week. Tune in to laugh at the sex-obsessed gays with more money than tact!
When Nico was telling the chef about his brother's death, I wanted to hug him so badly! I was hoping he would climb into the chef's bunk for a consoling cuddle.
The former Christian party animal het bro, keeps saying how hot the chef is. One of the girls asked if he went that way and he looked at her in horror, he also kept referring to his love of ass.
Sadly the new castmembers are dumb AND boring and none of the guys are hot imho. I love Kate but I'm not going to be able to watch this season just for her. The Portuguese guy looks like a mix between soccer players Ronaldo and Suarez but not doing it for me.
I watched a rerun of the most recent episode. One scene was interesting: Kate was nursing a bottle of "Ensure." J couldn't help but think, 'It, and three (or 16) menthol lights, were probably all she consumed that day.'
Chris Brown, the former Christian, has terrible eyebrows.
Nico doesn't have a big enough personality so Kate is going to have to carry this season by herself. She deserves a big raise.
I'm discouraged to see so much of the captain in these episodes. He's such a sour old scold and no fun to watch. I hope the size of his role shrinks considerably over the coming episodes.
That voice! That hair! That sour puss resting bitch face! That gold jewelry! Hate him.
Capt. Lee: in addition to his gold jewelry, you can bet he reeks of Certs and Ralph Lauren Polo!
I find it odd that none of the old cast wanted to come back besides Kate and Nico.
I find it odd also-I guess they don't pay as well as Real Housewives.
Even though there's considerable cast turnover each year, they used to hire interesting and outrageous characters like Kat and Rocky. This year and last year, the new hires are not yachties and not interesting or fun to watch.
Is anyone else watching? This season is pretty dull so far. Even the outrageous gays are dull.
I feel sorry for Captain Lee and Kate. Bravo has resorted to casting people who have zero experience because they think they would good for the show. As it turns out, it's just the opposite. Hopefully Captain Lee and Kate are making more money for having to do all the work, both on the yacht and on the show.
Capt. Lee was on WWHL and I could not help but notice his enormous bulge. Daddy is packing. And no I wouldn't.
Kate will be hosting her own podcast if you care.
It can't be any worse than the Brandi Glanville podcast, I guess.
Do you think Bruno with the hot body gay? I was thinking the big bear-like chef was hot, until he started talking about wanting to bang one of the stews.
R32 he used the term "balloon knot" to refer to her clit too. Never heard that one before?
I thought "balloon knot" was her asshole. He was talking about her butt and then said, "I'd lick her balloon knot."
Wasn't it the goofy virgin/ex Christian who was talking about balloon knots and not Bruno?
Yeah, I think it was the Chris Brown Experience.
Nico is very cute and I would sniff his hole for 2 hours and 34 minutes after a long deck swabbing session.
Yes, correct, balloon knot refers to butthole not clit. My bad. Strange thing to say for a straight guy??
Maybe he is not so straight?
The new bosun seems like a real dick. Finally, some drama. The bear-ish chef is hot. Nico is not. Dumbazz Chris has the best body of any of them including sushi platter boy. Probably the dullest season of the show so far and I'm a huge fan.
I agree about Chris. He's a total zero in terms of personality, but he's attractive. I'd hit that one for sure.
This week's charter guests did seem extremely boring.
The Viewers' Choice "Below Deck Dream Crew"!
Capt. Lee, Chef Ben, Kate, David, Kyle, Kelly, Bobby, Kat, Rocky, Adrienne -
Don't forget Eddie, R49!
Yes, AND EDDIE!
I totes wanna fuck Nico.
Yes, R54. But we were trying to keep it classy.
That said, I'm surprised that he's a top. I always pictured him as a very passive bottom kind of guy.
r55 I forget who his bf/fiance/husband is but David totally reads as a bottom in that relationship. I think he topped in his porn scenes because he was the only gay one and it was just easier to have the straight guy lay there with his feet in the air.
r41, I haven't noticed his body because all I can see is his eyebrows.
I think EJ is gay. He looks Bruno up and down when introduced.
Why does it seem like the new guy actually knows nothing?
I don't like Nico but I loathe the new bosun even more. Something tells me he's not going to be around for very long. There's an upcoming episode where hunky Chris takes his shirt off so we have something to look forward to. Bruno is gay, right?
Omg if I had my room taken away and i had to sleep next to the toilet paper in the kitchen I would take the hint that they don't want me.
I do hope it's nico that leaves what a whiny pos. He is not bosun material even if he was the best of the deck crew, the bar was set WAY low with this crew.
Chris is getting fired. Nobody likes him and he's a crappy worker. He should also stop drinking. Nico's a babe. Bruno is sooooo gay.
Hello, Nico's brother died suddenly! I think the guy gets a pass.
I would sniff the chef's hole, but probably end up licking Nico's hole for 1 hour and 43 minutes
he was eyeing bruno
Was that Chris' fine naked ass we got a lingering look at this week? Wow!
This season is so boring
That was a nice lingering view of Chris's ass. He's the hottest of the crew. Bruno is too cut but you know that dick is huge.
They had to stuff Bruno when he was the sushi platter.
Which one of the charter guests stuffed Bruno after the sushi?
Bruno has a killer bod, but a disturbing face
Ok did they really need to show the lobsters and crabs slowly dying?
I find Nico just OK, but fuckable. Not into bear types but the chef was pretty fuckable, too, drunk on the nude beach. Bruno's cute, seems like a bossy bottom.
Bruno is barely on the show. Get a good look because he won't be coming back.
Omg, omg,omg... Nico is sooooooooo dreamy!
Yum, yum! Looks like he dropped some poundage and shredded up
Nico has shitty tats. Seriously there is nothing worse than shitty tats. It speaks volumes about a person. Sorry Nico. What kind of name is Sholly anyway?
Nico is short for Nickolas which is just annoying. It's like the guy with the soul patch and frosted tips named Christopher who insists on being called Topher.
Maybe he is Greek? But again, Scholly? That is a weird name.
I dont care about the tats. I just want to explore his no-no for a while
Hahaha r82. Dolf Dietrich;s real name is Topher Ellsworth. Priceless.
Ohhh that charter guest mentioned Harvey Weinstein!
I bet he wishes he didn't.
Also Bruno is an adorable sous chef.
Niko is hot but such a spoiled brat. E.J. Might be a dork, but he handled the Niko childishness like an adult professional should in a workplace. He moved on from Niko’s outburst and didnt go running tp the captain. He does his job and attempts to train and make the other deckhands better. I came into this season liking Niko, but he is showing himself to be pretty, but empty person. Very entitled.
You're kind, R88.
Nico has been acting like a downright cunt.
I actually liked him last season, but I can't stand him anymore. He's arrogant, rude, and now he's acting like a complete asshole.
Next week, he trashes a woman for dating someone "who looks like her grandfather!!!"
And as truthful as he might be, it still makes him a complete and utter asshole.
Normally I would agree about Nico, but the guy gets a pass. His brother had JUST died before the season. You really can't judge his behavior.
My god, look what he's done to his beautiful arms.
If his brother just died he should have stayed home. I can't tell if the chef is dumb, inept, untalented or slow? *who* serves bananas foster (again) with chocolate ice cream!
Definitely a nicer person BUT He's no Ben!
The chef is basic. And who goes on a date and gets completely blotto?
Agree about Nico, he is a little d-bag. Loved Kate's description of the new Bosun as Ned Flanders.
The humiliation of Jen continues, I like her, she is loopy as hell but seems sweet.
Not all of us have the financial means to quit our jobs when a loved one dies. I'm sure that if staying home had been a viable option for Nico, he would have done it.
Jen lost me when she started to complain about Kate to her eight year old daughter? Really? You have 10 minutes to talk to your kid and you want to waste it complaining about work? i didn't like Nico last season and like him even less this season. He also came off as a douche as WWHL. BRING BACK KELLY!!!!! I can't believe we got a shot of Captain Lee stretched out on his bed in his private cabin. Next time I hope he's shirtless.
There was a shot of Capt. Lee shirtless sunbathing..did you miss it?
Jen is really out there, I mean who goes and leaves an 8 year old to clean toilets? But I find her endearing. I especially like it when they dress her up. Not impressed with Nico, and Ned Flanders handled himself well. He is annoying though.
I'll only watch Below Deck if Kelly and his big dick are on.
I would like to see Nico and the chef engage in receptive anal intercourse
Jen isn't just cleaning toilets, she's a featured performer on a hit cable TV reality show.
The new dude EJ is very odd, disturbing even. Is he gay, straight, hermaphrodite?
R96 The last couple of episodes have featured Captain Lee shirtless shots. Please stop.
I want to seduce EJ.
He looks like someone who would accept a blowjob from another guy, most likely someone like Bruno.
Is Brianna part black?
Her name is Brianna Adekeye, and that definitely sounds like an African name to me.
She's really gorgeous.
Bruno looks and acts very much like a crush I had in my 20's. I nearly got him to let me suck him off, one of my great regrets that it never happened.
Bruno is actually handsome from certain angles. He does have a great bod. Being Portuguese, he also most likely has an immaculate anus.
I want to see the chef topping Bruno, roughly.
I've said it once here, and I'll say it again: this "Baller," Capt. Lee, with his 'expensive' gold jewelry and his "Chiclets" (teeth) practically guarantees he reeks of Ralph Lauren Polo and Certs breath mints in person.
Totally R110. Capt. Lee is a cheeseball extraordinaire.
Cap'n Lee does not always wash his scrotum thoroughly
Those scene of him laying out in the sun really grossed me out. Skin cancer is so hot!
I hate Nico, his bad tats and his Chicago accent. Look like we get to meet his charming brother next episode.
R115 the dead one?
I'm heavily turned on by the chef's bromance with Bruno. And he must have really fucked up with his ex girlfriend who doesn't even want to see him when he gets back home. Love that she was very calm and friendly on the phone before she shot him down. That just proves he did something really, really bad.
I think Chef wants to be inside Bruno to the maximum depth!
I have a hard time believing Bruno is straight.
I don't, R119. He's a typical slightly-dim-witted good-natured good-looking straight dofus. Unlike Bobby, who is a slightly-dim-wittted but not good-natured dofus.
Does anyone else think Kate took Jen's sexual harassment claim a little too lightly? I would have at least informed the Captain and kept Jen away from those guests or at least not leave her unsupervised. Those guests were gross and the tip was pretty light for such big shots.
Nico needs to be fired pronto.
What happened, R122?
He brought his brother on the yacht, both of them drunk and abusive to his boss, EJ, who's being waaaaay too tolerant.
R121, no, Kate was right, you have to learn to deal with touchy-feely drunk guests graciously in situations where you're plying them with drinks to get a tip. I didn't take Jen's complaint for anything more than a heads-up, this could become a problem, which is entirely appropriate. Kate was also instantly more attentive and careful to not leave Jen in an uncomfortable situation alone with them, also appropriate. Not every situation is a Harvey-level assault.
EJ is an alien from another planet
Can't stand Captain Lee or Kate. Last time I watched was season with Rocky. Talk about drama.
Captain Lee is a Kenny Rogers impersonator when he is not sailing
Kate cracks me up. I hope they're paying her a lot. Those guests were awful!! That fucking blonde girl should have been thrown over. Nico's brother is not cute but I do hope Jen got some.
The dynamic between Kate and Jen is the only amusing thing about this season.
I don't know why, but seeing anorexic tiny Kate picking on even more tiny and anorexic Jen is hilarious.
I love when Kate forces Jen to dress up. That always cracks me up.
Somebody quits in the next episode. Jen?
Jen or Nico, unless someone else has a sudden unplanned emergency.
I hope it's Nico.
My favorite line:
Kate: "Bruno, if you want to be a stewardess..."
Bruno is married to a guy. For like 3 years.
And he's bulked up considerably since filming. Lucky guy who gets to roam those hills.
Is Bruno really gay? He was playing along eyeballing that trashy blond on the last charter. Then he told Charles had beautiful eyes too. So I am confused. To me he seems gay as a goose.
Okay just looked at his Instagram and he is totally gay. Got it.
He seems like he has a touch of lavender
So has Bruno been servicing Matt?
Why would Bruno be so quiet about it on the show and have an Instagram that is super gay?
They're both very handsome.
Now I'm actually shocked that Bruno kept his boyfriend a secret for the entire season.
Bruno and Jose met outside a subway station. A real life TRICK!
So which deckhand is coming back next week? Based on those short, clunky thighs shown in the promo i'm guessing Eddie.
Can't be Eddie.
Eddie's a bosun, and they already have a bosun with EJ.
I think and hope it's Nico. He's a total dickhead.
Nico never left, he just injured his funny bone.
EJ is the one who is leaving, I think it's Eddie.
EJ, the Bosun, is leaving so it may very well be Eddie.
Kyle with the tranny gf is the new deckhand. Supposedly he gets into it with Jen. Grab your popcorn.
So the charter hosts walked off the boat without saying goodbye to anyone? Tacky. The crew did everything they could to make the charter enjoyable and the guests seemed to be having a great time with the exception of Herb Alpert's (haven't heard that name in decades) daughter who seemed like an entitled bitch. Am I wrong or did it seem like Kyle was hitting on Bruno?
Nico is not coming off well this season. I actually ended up being team EJ since he never ratted out Nico to the Captain. And, yes, the crew benefited from having him onboard even for a short period of time. Nico is a brat.
Bruno is adorable.
Jen is truly crazy. Who calls their boss a whore then tries to play the victim?
r153 I think he was testing the waters with Bruno. Also why he stripped down in front of him. I hate Jen and Nico. I dont know how either can find work after this.
I'd love to see some Kyle and Bruno action, but Bruno seems VERY devoted to his boyfriend.
Check his Instagram. They're in lurrrrrrrv.
Smart guy. When you have something good, you hold on to it with all your might.
Bruno is much leaner on this show. I wonder if he has been hitting the roids?
So Bruno isn't just "fluid" as he claimed on the show - he's full out 100% gay, right?
I loathed Nico with a passion after Season 4. Now, I wish his baby brother had taken Nico and the rest of his pig siblings with him. Disgusting obnoxious family.
Kyle refusing to eat any of his food because trashy Jenn stuck her fork in the sauce was great. She deserves that. He is right about her. No manners.
It was rude for Jen to stick her (clean) fork in Kyle's food, but then again she seems like white trash AND they were both flirting hard with each other, so she probably didn't know any better. Kyle must be bipolar or schizo to react the way he did.
I honestly think Kyle is crazier than Jenn.
Kyle is trash, himself. How many babies has he fathered by now?
Kyle must be bipolar or schizo to react the way he did.
I think that he has real issues stemming from his sexuality.
He claims he's gay, then he claims to be straight but attracted to transexuals, then he hits on Sierra on the last season, and now he's hitting on Jen.
The guy is clearly fucked up, which translates into his anger issues.
Truly, I think he's gay but he just doesn't want to admit it.
Kyle told Bruno he'd be on top! Mmmmmm
Kyle's transgender gf (sorry, I can't remember her name) definitely got tired of his shit and moved on. She was way too smart for him. And now he's fathered another child? And he gets upset when peoiiple eat off his plate? Also, he was definitely hitting on Bruno but if Bruno is going to get fucked by anybody on that boat it's going to be big bear chef Matt.
Kate is really the queen of shade. Her comment about Jenn's hairstyle put me under the table.
he was definitely hitting on Bruno but if Bruno is going to get fucked by anybody on that boat it's going to be big bear chef Matt.
Agreed. I think the attraction was a bit mutual.
There's definitely sexual tension between Matt and Bruno. If they were rooming together I wouldn't be surprised if they ended up fucking. But, Matt is stuck with creepy Niko and Bruno has psycho Jen.
Bruno and Matt should definitely engage in receptive anal intercourse
And now he's fathered another child?
How'd you like to be one of those two poor kids, with Kyle as your father?
Ugh, I can only imagine.
Jen is trailer trash.
R178 IT'S NOT MY PLATE!!!!!!
Matt finds his mojo again. Kate is snarky as ever and is soo over it. Nico is going running back to his girlfriend. Jen and Kyle are both still batshit. Bruno fucked up and got a rope burn. Baker is really horny and pissed she wasted her time on Ned Flanders.
50k for this kind of service? Bunch of loons.
Does anyone think Baker is actually a lesbian?
I love Baker. She's smart and knows how to handle people (even nutjobs like Jen). She seems genuinely nice but, yeah, I did get a dyke vibe at first.
Did anyone find EJ attractive? Whenever I think about having sex with him, I just can't.
EJ was strangely asexual. He's not a bad looking guy, fit and personable, so he should be pulling, but he doesn't. And it's not just his Canadian-ness either. It's an indefinable way he moves/acts/talks. Puzzling.
He was kind of like a robot, pretending to be human.
He was kind of like a robot, pretending to be human.
He's Canadian, so that's what it is.
I have a Canadian friend who is also a bit like a robot. He has a huge cock though so all is forgiven.
Last Charter of the Season.
Nico: I may be a macho man, I may have muscles and a chiseled jaw line.
WHAT? Nico, you do not have a chiseled jaw line.
Nico got the stripes he so whined for all season in spite of doing a crappy job, fucking and fucking OVER a member of the interior crew, being disrespectful to his superior (EJ) and just being a cunt. He must have blown Captain Lee. His treatment of Brianna was deplorable and, hopefully, the girlfriend he ran home to has dumped his scrawny ass by now. I would have given him more credit if he had been honest with Brianna instead of using his family and dead brother as an excuse to go home. Scum.
Will there be a reunion this season?
Reunion next week in the Bravo Clubhouse
Nico revealed himself to be a typical pencil necked straight guy who thinks he's hot. Honey; you ain't all that.
Nico is not hot at all. Especially if you out him next to Bruno who does actually have a body worth looking at.
But I'd still pound him.
Me too. Into the concrete.
Most of the guys this season weren't hot. Bruno's great, Nico would do in a pinch, but the drunk chef? EJ? Chris? Kyle? Lot of "nope" there.
Nico has really cheap looking tats. Did his mom draw them on his back with a magic marker?
It looks like Adam will be the chef on the next season of Below Deck Mediterranean.
NIco suffered for those tatts last season (or the season before?) when he was in the jacuzzi with a guest (?) who was saying the same thing about his tatts (magic marker). He got all hurt and said he did it when he was young. I noticed he didn't take his shirt off much this time.
I think Chef Matt is hot as hell and I would engage in anal receptive intercourse with him for 2 hours and 17 minutes
Nico, typical coward, bad tats. Loser. Bad accent. Please don't cast him next season.
Other than Kate, who is a perfect reality TV heroine/villain, who else from this season do you want to see next year? In my opinion, Nico proved himself to be a loser and none of the new people broke through as entertaining.
I wish Captain Sandy could be in EVERY season!
Jen is a complete moron and annoying but that also makes for good entertainment.
I liked Bruno for eye candy but he was a minor player. Most of the drama is the interior, chef and guests.
Kyle is always entertaining, I'd have him back (or on his).
What happened to Kyle's girlfriend?
R206 which one ? the one with the kid or the trannie?
I think Kyle is cute and probably a wild fuck.
Kyle is probably very kinky, but may have questionable anal hygiene
Kyle undoubtedly has dick cheese.
Yum to dick cheese
I'd bring back Kyle and Matt (only because I think Matt is cute and dumb). Bruno is like the new Kelly. Not very interesting and does bring much to the show but nice to look at. Jen should stay home with her kid.
It’s a huge step down from Rocky and Ben to Kyle and Matt.
Kyle is an unattractive and creepy mush mouth and Matt is dull.
Maybe it’s time to start over with a whole new crew yet again.
Matt makes messy bms
“chiseled jawline?!” Oh, Nico, you are hilarious!!!
Bruno must be juicing or heavily on supplements. Looking at his insta he has put on a lot of mass.
Did anyone watch the reunion? Was it good? Any news about next season?
I lost interest weeks ago but I’m hopeful that they can turn it around with a better cast next season.
I thought Bruno tried to be nice to Kate early on but she obviously didn't care for him at all, which really came out tonight. Surprises me because I'd think they'd get along.
Felt sorry for Matt as he came across as an idiot who had to be led by the hand, perhaps not entirely unfair.
Kate and Jen are friends now, inexplicably.
It was mostly dull, though. Andy's mouth was agape as Capt Lee ripped into Nico.
Clearly everyone watched the season and are embarrassed by their actions. Jen was very humble and she and Kate were very buddy buddy. Captain Lee had no idea of what was going on. Matt is a sweet guy. Nico got alot of heat for his behavior and rightfully so.
"Kate and Jen are friends now, inexplicably."
Not so 'inexplicably.' Jen is a single mother with a daughter to support.
Kate's ego will not allow her to consider she's the one being used as a 'resource.' Good.
Captain Lee had no idea of what was going on.
That's a good thing. Lee more or less said in the beginning he didn't want to have to deal with people complaining about others and firings would happen. It's not his job to handle petty bullshit.
That's why there are supervisors and underlings: Deal with the problems! Kate never complained once about Jen to Capt Lee.
"Kate never complained once about Jen to Capt Lee. "
Though she did threaten Jen that she would do so, in her special, manipulative manner: "What would Capt. Lee say if he knew you did . . . "
Bruno's "no labels" nonsense undercuts his appeal.
Honestly, I cannot picture Bruno with a woman unless he's doing her hair. Kyle looks like he rarely bathes. Captain Lee looked disgusted but I was kinda shocked that he said he would work with Niko again after saying he never would have promoted him to Bosun had he been aware of his petty behavior. Matt was sweet and even more lovable when he admitted he couldn't have pulled off the last meal without Kate's help. However, I thought his excuse about being distracted because of his ex girlfriend was lame.
Nico kept trying to blame his erratic behavior on his brother's death. Coward. Oh, and he's single again. GF dumped his ass while the show was airing (guess she had a problem with him and Bree in bed?) and Briana doesn't want him back.
Nico single? How could anyone resist his “chiseled jawline?”
Even though Chef Matt has messy bms, I would still do him
Bruno looked really different, very beefy, must be 25lbs heavier.. His no labels issue is his own. He couldn't even say the word gay. Portugal, catholic. Those are his issues.
