Recap by guest blogger J.R. Unpopular opinion: I hate the Vitamin C song, “Graduation.” If you have heard it, ugh. And if you haven’t heard it, lucky you. To briefly describe it, it’s slow and makes you feel things, and I’m not comfortable with a song used for middle school graduations invoking that kind of emotion. Much like Ben, I’m trying to avoid...

Recap by guest blogger J.R. Kate and I both start off this episode of Below Deck, the same way, complaining about the end of this charter season.

Recap by guest blogger J.R. You know that feeling after you finished eating Thanksgiving dinner and you’re so full, and you’ve drank enough that you’re not yet on Ben’s level after he’s had a few drinks with his brother, but that fine line where you can tolerate your family’s shady comments about your life choices? And you’re tired from eating and you’ve...

Recap by guest blogger J.R. Have you ever been so drunk at night, that the morning after you wake up after having previously consumed so much alcohol, that you’re still drunk? Me neither.

Recap by guest blogger J.R. Have you guys heard of the TLC song, “No Scrubs” (fun fact, Real Housewife of Atlanta star, Kandi Burruss, won a Grammy for writing it)? Some key lyrics are: “I don’t want no scrub, A scrub is a guy that can’t get no love from me, Hangin’ out the passenger side, Of his best friend’s ride, Trying...

Recap by guest blogger J.R. We delve right in Below Deck and quickly find out the aftermath to Kyle’s shoulder “injury” which wasn’t an injury at all, it was just dislocated.

Recap by guest blogger J.R. It was not a great episode for men tonight. Trevor may be gone, but misogyny lives on. Overwhelmed from the previous night, Sierra calls her mom to vent about dinner service and Ben’s attitude during it. She says she has pretty thick skin as long as there’s positivity around her. A true test of thick skin would probably be to have...

On Below Deck, our favorite screw up, Trevor, has now departed. Sure, things are running smoother, but we’ll miss scenes of him picking his nose, telling us all how smart and talented he is, and drunkenly popping off to his boss. Trevor, we hardly knew you.

Recap by guest blogger J.R. We continue right where we left off in the going to bed debacle. Nico is FaceTiming with his friend Melissa, who asks if he’s all right with the Trevor situation. He’s as all right as any person who has a coworker using all his free time to take jabs at him would be. So, no, not really all right at all. Kelley knows that he has to...

By guest blogger J.R. We start this episode right where we left off last week, Kelley is speaking to Captain Lee about Trevor. A reminder, it’s only day two. Kelley really wants to redeem himself and make a good impression to the Captain, and he’s worried he won’t be able to do that. Captain Lee tells him to remind Trevor that no one is indispensable. That...

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water, they’re back! This time it’s the behind the scenes. First up, Kelley. Seems he cries a lot but even more than that, we now see how much he and Eddie love each other. Goofing around, towel snapping, finger pokin’ kind of love. Kat’s in love with herself of course, and she has a propensity...

Jump aboard,mateys, because this is our last cruise with the tug! We begin where we left off — ashore, semi-drunk, and bitchy.

Take off your shoes and come aboard! It’s the night before charter, and Kelley asks Jennice to join him on a date. Be kinda lonely if he went alone. First, Jennice has to go through torture and borrow a dress. (I don’t think she owns a strapless bra.)  And off they go, round the clubhouse turn…we’ll see how who wins and who places in a  few,...

Well, first, let throw out the used connie in the room: Ben and Kat were on WWHL last week, and, yes, Kat is still with her boyfriend, but, sadly, Ben is not with his girlfriend. Though, it has absolutely nothing to do with a stained, decorative pillow as the crew calls it — in the real world, we tend to call them throw pillows, but those yachtees have a different...

Rub-a-dub, three crew members in a tub is one too darn many! But I’ll get to that later. Because for now, everyone’s buzzin’ about the new deckhand. I’ll tell you everything you need to know about him: Tall, cute in a boyish, effeminate kind of way, truly dated tribal tat down his right arm, built, and from Oklahoma, where one hears the wind...
