'Below Deck' returned with a stressful episode not just for viewers but for the crew as well who were trying their best to communicate efficiently and getting the job done before the guests complained, which eventually happened but only when they said their goodbyes. They were not pleased with the amount of time the team took to set up the beach picnic. 

Later, Captain Lee Rosbach called for a team meeting during which he ordered everyone in the team to step up because most of the workload is being shouldered by chief stewardess Francesca Rubi and bosun Eddie Lucas. He acknowledged the leaders' efforts but what the fans saw later possibly got them thinking if Francesca was as good as Captain Lee projects her to be. Several fans have taken to social media to express how chef Rachel Hargrove is teaching Elizabeth Frankini how to iron and not Francesca.

"My point on Francesca not being the problem when the second is learning how to iron by the chef. #BelowDeck," a user commented, while another shared: "Wow, Rachel the amazing cook who does her job so smoothly is also having to do franchescas job of teaching the stews their jobs!#BelowDeck." 



 

 



 

 

"Rachel is not only the first female Below Deck chef and KILLING it, but she's also teaching the interior how to iron!? Is there anything she can't do? #BelowDeck," a fan pointed out, while another tweeted: "Why is Chef Rachel leading the interior?  Francesca only cares about Francesca #BelowDeck."

"How fantastic is Rachel?! Very happy she is amongst your new team this season #BelowDeck," a user praised.



 

 



 

 



 

 

Is this good or bad news for Francesca? Elizabeth and Francesca are already experiencing a coldness in their working relationship, which will manifest itself in god knows what shape in the days to come. The chief stew is frustrated that she is having to micromanage one of her team members while Elizabeth feels disappointed in the way she is being treated by her superior. Will this issue be taken up by the captain? Time will tell.
