'Below Deck': Chris wins $200 for dancing shirtless in a hot tub while Paget, Byron don silk pajamas
The guests provided the crew members with silk pajamas, which they had to slip into and parade as if it were a fashion show
'Below Deck Sailing Yacht' returned with a heartwarming episode on Monday and it was easily one of the best of the season. The makers saved the best for the last.
In Episode 15, the penultimate group of charter guests was filmed. Theirs was an emotional backstory. Primary guest Keri was battling stage 4 cancer and being on the cruise was possibly her way of taking a detour from all that she was going through.
Her friends knew what she was looking for and ensured that all of that and more was delivered during her three-day stay on the yacht. The crew was extremely co-operative and made sure that the guests' every demand is fulfilled.
Previously, Paget Berry was asked to step out shirtless in his pair of boxers to present the guests with a birthday cake. And he happily obliged. It was not a surprise given how everyone on the team appeared invested in doing all they could to meet the needs of those on board.
In today's episode, the demands went a notch higher. The guests provided the team members with silk pajamas, which they had to slip into and parade as if it were a fashion show. Byron Hissey and Paget stripped, while Chris Miller did a little impromptu dance, slipped into the hot tub, and went shirtless. He won a fancy robe and $200 for his act.
It was a solid effort by Chris given he had injured his back earlier on. He has been a refreshing replacement, at least that is what Paget has had to say about Chris's approach and attitude towards work. He even voluntarily rappelled up the 109ft tall mast to assess if the oil leak had been fixed.
It's great to see a team member put in efforts but at what cost? Chris should have rested when he went all out in shouldering his responsibilities as a deckhand. In the next episode, we see Glenn making an appointment with the doctor just to make sure he was okay and fit to work the last charter of the season.
