  1. Wow, Captain Sandy has so much spite for Hannah, that she's willing to look incompetent just to stick it to her. If you hate Hannah, fine. If you want to give Kelsey a pass, fine. But if you make a concerted effort to start complimenting her and rewarding her BECAUSE she lied on her resume, you look like an idiot. I get the whole, "Fake it 'til you make it" clichΓ©. Here's the thing, though, you need to keep faking it. If Kelsey lies on her resume to get a job, then gets the job, you'd think she'd take SOME time to prepare for what she lied about. Her defense that, "I gave it to a friend to do and didn't even look at it" is actually worse than lying on her resume, imo. It shows how little she cares about this job. And if Captain Sandy really thinks Hannah is the problem and Kelsey is doing a good job, then demote Hannah and promote Kelsey. Give Kelsey more responsibility and see how the next charter goes. So far this season there have been some ups and down with the guests, the food, and the deck crew, but the one consistent throughout the whole season is that Kelsey can't do her job. For once Jao (spelling?) made a good point. Ultimately, the captain has all the power on this ship and Kelsey is now a reflection on Captain Sandy, NOT Hannah.
  2. Good points. Nothing I've seen from either Ashley or Jared suggests they're emotionally ready for marriage. I can't imagine they have a healthy relationship that lasts, because their values and idea of a relationship are delusional. Don't follow these people IRL (if there is such a thing) so hadn't heard rumblings of divorce for Jade and Tanner. Carly is another one who wasn't emotionally mature enough when she got married, but maybe her husband's love and money will get her to grow up (I'm not one who thinks having kids changes who you are. I've reconnected with people years after they get married and have kids and they're still insecure and self absorbed if they were that way before kids).
  3. I can't help thinking a majority of their issues would be resolved if they just hired one more interior person. Three people could then always be customer facing, and one person can be behind the scenes doing laundry, cleaning, and being the sous chef. I also realize part of the allure is that everything is made from scratch, but it wouldn't hurt to have some quick and easy snacks on board in case guests are hungry. Sometimes you just want to eat, and presentation doesn't really matter. It also doesn't help that whenever guests make a request, they say ok. Again, I realize for the price they pay you can't tell a guest "no", but you can sway the guests toward all ordering the same thing (or at least most of the same thing). It sounds like everyone like Honey's pasta, so rather than make three dishes (vegan, regular, and kosher) just make the vegan and kosher dishes. Or, just make the vegan dish kosher and serve to everyone (it actually sounded delicious). It just seems chaotic the way they do things.
  4. So Sandy's entire list of complaints for the charter boiled down to HER experience at breakfast fraternizing with the guests. Wow. I understand the Captain is above the rest of the crew, but if the charter guests are happy and being served she shouldn't be that upset about her own personal meal being delayed. She's still part of the crew, not the charter, and should think of the charter first.
  5. Interesting. Especially considering the people involved. Seems like an odd group of people to even be hanging out (Amit barely stood in the same room as Stephen throughout the season). Oh well, whatever gets them off TV.
  6. Yeah, Danielle and Amit got a little short changed. Danielle losing her job probably affected her involvement, and Amit seemed like a cool dude that secretly knew everyone and hooked up a lot, but I don't think he liked how the others in the house acted so just did his own thing. Again, I realize there's a formula to these shows (i.e. "Drama!"). But, what if Bravo just filmed a show about young, good looking people enjoying a summer in the Hamptons? Crazy thought, just film beautiful houses and pools and beach and intersperse it with a group of people having fun and hooking up. It doesn't always have to be about people yelling at each other.
  7. God I hope this is true! I'm amazed Bravo actually cares what it's viewers think and realizes how unpopular the Wirkus sisters are (but makes me wonder about other shows where awful people stay on year after year). Not sure why production is confuse even about Stephen. He brought nothing interesting to the show, was a Debbie Downer for two seasons on a show about VACATION IN THE HAMPTONS!!!, and was an ass to everyone. Good riddance.

    I don't understand everyone who thinks Paige is fine because there's no evidence to arrest her. Her parents didn't "get away free" they escaped. The FBI knows (with or without Stan tell on god them anything) that Philip and Elizabeth are spies, and they'll at least assume Paige was with them at some point during the escape (Aderholt knows she wasn't in her apartment). I can't imagine the government just lets her slide. For that matter, they'd probably still bring in Henry and detain him/ruin his life. They'll just assume Henry knew/was involved, too, but there wasn't time for the family to go get him. I'm pretty sure both kids lives are ruined.

    I guess I still don't understand your point about "the right choice"? Capt Sandy claimed it was unfair for Hannah to work on the next charter while still on this charter. Why would Capt Sandy think it was the right decision to do the provisions at night then clean the carpets in the morning? My interpretation from Capt Sandy's comments was that the provisions list was the LEAST important thing to do at that time. At least, until the next charter when something was missing at which point I'm sure Sandy comes back with, "Why wasn't this done before the guests arrived!" I just don't think Hannah could win this one. And the more I think about it the more I think Capt Sandy should have taken her free time to do the provisions rather than hang out with her friends. Especially since she micromanaged everything else.

    No, to your point, Capt Sandy would have bitched at Hannah about the carpet stains and ALSO bitched at her for doing the provisions. Remember, Capt Sandy was upset Hannah was working on the provisions while the charter was still ongoing. It was a no-win situation. I'll bet something is missing on the next charter and Sandy yells at Hannah for not taking care of the provisions in time. Long story short, Hannah is short staffed and trying to make up for Kasey, which Sandy doesn't accept and blames Hannah. There just wasn't enough hours in the day for Hannah to clean the carpets, prepare for the next charter, and be on morning service. Sandy needs to realize this. Here's a thought, Sandy loves to take time showing Kasey how to vacuum and other menial tasks, as captain of a ship that's not sailing anywhere maybe she could have worked on the provisions list for Hannah instead of sitting with her friends for breakfast? Normally I wouldn't think it would be the captain's responsibility, but if she doesn't mind vacuuming maybe she could help with some bigger issues?
  12. Lol. Alex is trying SOOOO hard to be the great guy, but everyone sees through him and thinks he's awful. I'm sure there are plenty of young, dumb, pretty girls in Florida that go gaga for him because he's rich and on tv, though. Sigh.

    Agree with this. These shows always start out interesting, but by season 3 the regulars have figured out what gets air time so they just start acting like people act on every show. Some producer got in Sandy's ear that she needs to create more "drama" so she obliges. But you can tell her heart isn't in it because half the time she's smiling while she's complaining. I think Joao had a good point about the watch, but he went about it the wrong way. What did we learn from Gene Hackman in Crimson Tide? "You have a problem, fine, pull me aside and speak to me in private. But if we're out with the crew you bite your f*ing lip." Or something like that. As soon as Joao started being critical of Conrad in front of the crew he put Conrad in the position of having to be defensive. It wasn't the right move, but I think if he approached Conrad in private and asked him why he wasn't having a 24-hour watch, or simply suggested it or something, Conrad may have agreed to it. I kind of like Adam this season, but after reading this thread his meals really aren't that impressive. I find it remarkable anyone can cook anything on a ship, but posters are right that he doesn't have Ben's skill. And being overwhelmed for breakfast service just seems odd. You should be up, ready to go, for breakfast since you know it's coming. Maybe if the guests had coffee, scrambled eggs, toast, fruit, etc. waiting for them they wouldn't have put in individual orders? Or it would have at least given him time to make something while they snacked.

    No doubt Joao is a prick, but my comments were more about Kasey's talking head segments. That's not her being creeped out, that's her delighted that a guy is pursuing her.

    I'm sorry, but Kate lost me when should would brag about cutting corners and doing things half-assed/on the cheap. I get that these people work really hard on these charters, and sometimes you just have to make the best out of what's available. But Kate complains anytime she's asked to do anything and seems to hate her job. Hannah at least still takes pride in her work. Not sure what to think about Kasey at this point. I feel sorry for her being ill, and I can respect her life choices. That being said, she also genuinely appears to be a tease who craves male attention and likes telling men about her celibacy to get them excited. Do whatever you want in life, you only get one chance at it, just don't use it to manipulate people.
