Below Deck Season 8 - Part 2

For some unexplicable reason, the other thread got paywalled.

Right when the show was getting good.

Is Rachel bipolar?

A mean drunk?

Have Tourette's syndrome?

Or just batshit crazy?

Rob really cracks me up.

When he keeps saying that he's awkward, he's not kidding.

He's REALLY awkward.

All I can think of when Elizabeth complains about Francesca being a meanie is how Kate would've torn her a new asshole by now. She doesn't realize how good she's got it.

I'm shocked that the North Carolina gay Primary gave the crew such a large tip.

$25,000? That's pretty amazing.

They all got over $2000 each!

Sometimes I think that James has a crush on Rob. He's always mentioning how much he likes him.

My favorite comment of the episode was James asking, "Are we gonna go take a shower?" to Eddie and Rob. lol

James talking about Rob: "I love him. He's the perfect partner. I love him."

Yes, please!

It was Rob who said "I need a quick shower."

Then either James or Eddie said, "I'll join you." *silence* "In a separate shower."

I was wondering the same thing, R15.

He might just be totally comfortable with his (hetero)sexuality.

When Izzy asked him if he would hook up with Sunshine, James didn't even flinch. He said, "I'd be scared that I'd break him." Lol.

James has a great sense of humor.

by Anonymousreply 1612/29/2020

I wouldn’t be shocked if Rob turns out to be bi. He’s obviously more comfortable with guys. I think his explanation about being nerdy and living in the woods is his cover.

For someone so awkward and shy R17, why does he work on sailboats and super yachts, where you interact with hundreds of other people?

I'm officially in love with Rob. I was physically attracted to him and his beautiful eyes before, but now knowing he's a shy and awkward nerd makes him even more attractive.

I would love it if he and James hooked up.

"Go fuck yourself!" said Rachel.

"I'd rather not do that" said Captain.

Was she actually saying that to him, or was it edited to look that way.

I missed the part where she came crawling back. How did she worm her way back in? Assume the captain was just desperate and she's just that good. She definitely proved herself on that charter where they got the $25K tip.

Catching up on this show now. Not a great season. But LOVED how the psycho chef who quit did an awesome job with the gay men. She is a lunatic but I do not blame her for quitting.

And these gay men who came across SO FUCKING BAD in their pre-trip, were actually bowled over by the service. The were supremely unattractive but actually a lot of fun! And fuck it. God bless them for creating a life where they can afford this. I should be so lucky. And they seemed genuinely nice and appreciative. I think that gay douche squad from earlier in the season truly look like tools compared to these guys.

I think these episodes actually had some deep lessons underneath the frivolity. About giving up and pre-judging.

I hated the new deckhand (typical millennial douche trying to find fame but acting like he is above/below it all) "I am a nerd." Yeah, right, bitch. You are playing EVERYONE.

But now I am charmed. He is adorable.

by Anonymousreply 2301/02/2021

Just managed to find “Below Deck Galley Talk” (it’s before episode 1 on on-demand FYI). Was interesting watching, Colin was very flirty with Bobby, “Do you want to take your pants off?, We should just get naked”. Everyone looked good, Kelly still looked buff, as did Bobby. I hope Josiah is growing his hair out, as the blond tips look terrible. Looking forward to another episode next week.

by Anonymousreply 2401/02/2021

Holy fuck, the 2nd half of the season seems GOOD.

The first half was spotty at best- I was pretty unimpressed by three of the episodes. Thank god the chef is a lunatic who also should not drink!

Eddie is HOTTER every episode.

And I somehow dig the first stew who cries.

If I was straight- between her beauty and that Australian accent, I would want to bone her from here to Sunday! She is lovely to me.

R24, that sounds good!

I love Colin, and I want to see him flirt with Bobby.

I'll bet he wants to get his tight hole pounded by Bobby's Italian sausage.

Rob says they've known each other for millenniums. It's a real deep thing.

The thing is, I don't really think they're kidding.

I’m loving the Rob/James flirtation, very sexy. Eddie looked very “hot daddy” with the beard on WWHL tonight.

by Anonymousreply 3601/04/2021

This was really a fantastic episode!

I honestly can't tell if Rob was joking or not, when he was talking about his bromance with James.

I can usually get a read on most people, but he's a tough nut to crack. I have no idea when he's being serious, and when he's not.

That drunk lady sure could hold her liquor. She still wasn't falling down drunk. She could walk and swim, but she was just being beligerent.

Considering how much she drunk during the course of the day, I am AMAZED at her ability to drink.

[quote] Was interesting watching, Colin was very flirty with Bobby, “Do you want to take your pants off?, We should just get naked”.

I'm not surprised by this at all.

Colin is from Long Island, so he probably has a thing for muscular guidos, and Bobby totally fits the stereotype.

I can't tell that Colin has the hots for Bobby. He'd probably let Bobby fuck him right there on the couch!

But yeah, Colin's mannerisms on this show are very gay. Which is surprising, because he really toned it down during his two seasons on Below Deck. Now he's just letting it fly!

Just watched the new episode. I think Rob swings both ways. The way he talked about James was not casual, it was more. Also, he seemed jealous when Elizabeth said they kissed. It makes sense for him to be closeted as he's in a very macho environment, I doubt the other gold miners would accept a fag among them. As for James I think he's a straight fuck boy way too into himself. He knows he's hot and enjoys the attention, whether it's from men or women. He's comfortable with his sexuality but most likely straight imo.

Why were Izzy and Ashling making fun of his eyebrows? They were both like, "it's too much." Lots of straight guys do their eyebrows nowdays.

[quote] Anyone else getting jealousy vibes from Ash? I think she wants James all to herself.

Yeah, she's a phony cow. She wants him.

In the "still to come this season" preview that they showed after last week's episode, it showed James and Ashling flirting and making out. And Elizabeth was left out in the cold.

[quote] It's intersting to watch the horrors of covid unfold in real time.

Yes! So does Izzy have Covid?

All this time I was thinking it was her Guillain Barre syndrome kicking in (since she talked about it so damned much), but it just dawned on me that she might have been experiencing Covid symptoms.

by Anonymousreply 4401/05/2021

I don’t think Ash is as sweet as she seems. That’s why I love her.

by Anonymousreply 4501/05/2021

Why does Ash speak like Tyler Perry's Madea character?

Her accent is so weird.

Instead of home, she says "herrrm." There are a ton of other words that she mispronounces, by adding an rrrrr sound to them.

And I don't think that it's an Australian thing, because Francesca doesn't speak that way.

It must be a local accent.

[quote] Rob and James. Finally a BD couple that makes sense.


They couldn't be more different.

James is an outgoing, extroverted party boy who loves to joke around, flirt, and have sex.

Rob is a hermit who lives in the woods, talks to trees, and has awkward interactions with other humans.

The only thing they have in common, is that they're both attractive.

I can totally understand, though, why Rob is attracted to James. But not vice-versa.

That Galley Talk with Colin and Bobby was so interesting.

Colin was absolutely GIDDY being at Bobby's apartment. He looked like he was on a first date, or something.

I also observed some interesting body language from Colin. He was leaning in towards Bobby on the couch, while Bobby was sitting straight forward. That's a sure sign that he's into Bobby.

by Anonymousreply 79Last Monday at 6:00 PM

I think that Francesca is so wooden that it came off staged. All she did was parrot his words back and repeating "I'm sorry". Nothing engaging like "tell me what one of your favorite memories are of him". Or something that showed a bit of genuine care and concern. I don't wan't that harpy back, but there's got to be a happy medium.

Anyone notice that James nose seems to be angled a bit to the right (his left) - not a major flaw (he is cute) but something is out of joint with his nose. Of the three (James, Rob and Eddie) I think Eddie is the most attractive - looks, work ethic and sense of humor. Rob is very handsome and I think he will age well but he's still too new to the S.S. Minnow. James is just cute and his day in the sun will be brief.

by Anonymousreply 84Last Tuesday at 8:39 AM

Eddie is definitely the most appealing. He can also laugh at himself and point out his own flaws which makes him even more attractive.

Eddie is gay husband material.

Unfortunately (in reality), he's straight husband material.

I cannot believe that he doesn't even have a girlfriend right now.

James is fake gay. The producers bait him. "So why do you and Rob get along so well?" "Oh, me and Rob have the same sense of humor, and banter. We just 'get' each other. That sounds like I have a crush on him, doesn't it?"

The BD producers love gay baiting.

On the other hand, Rob seems truly gay. Listening to what actually comes out of his mouth regarding James, it seems like he really does have a crush on James. Everything he says indicates that his attraction for James is more than any attraction he feels towards a woman.

He couldn't even put two words together as far as making conversation with Francesca, but when it comes to James, he just can't stop talking.

That says it all.

by Anonymousreply 90Last Tuesday at 10:19 AM

R90 Well, to be fair, most of them on that show weren't, but she is most certainly in the "not a model" category. Though for 38 (now) and for how much she drinks, she looks pretty good. I'll say this for her, she's done a lot, and doesn't seem afraid to try new, challenging things. ROTC, became a highly trained chef who apprenticed at a Michelin star rated restaurant in Italy. She's a massage therapist, a yoga instructor, Aryvedic (sorry, I tried, I failed) practitioner, the list goes on. She's also an alcoholic just to round shit out. I have a wee hunch she has been trying to escape from some dark shit in her family (I know, I must be psychic) because she has a LOT of emotional baggage. She's a fucking mess, but I like her.

by Anonymousreply 91Last Tuesday at 2:06 PM

Fair point R91; I had no idea she did all those things. But the scene when she was genuinely wailing in the bathroom about her boyfriend was disturbing - that woman has issues. If he ever tries to break up with her, she'll gut him & fry him up like a fish

I feel the same way.

But I suspect that what we see on television, versus being her friend in real life are two very different things.

I would imagine that being Rachel's friend in real life would be exhausting, emotionally draining, and a bit scary.

Nobody on that yacht can handle her. Not even the captain.

I agree with r82, they are both still well within regular straight bonding, at least among millennials and I assume the zees. Rob may end up not being straight, but to me right now it comes across as socially awkward, which is unusual for reality tv and makes me immediately think "good actor" but maybe not.

What a classic idiot girl is Elizabeth?! She was very redeeming on wwhl though.

Is it just me, or does Captain Lee look so much older this year? I'll chalk it up to the death of his son, something that horrible would certainly do it. He is so hangdog and his "stud of the sea" vibe is MIA.

Maybe he misses Kate too. Her replacement is dull, and Eddie tries too hard to be buddy-buddy (Yeah I know, he's cute, but he's a bit cheesy, let's face it). He's as feisty as ever on Twitter at least.
