‘Below Deck’ season 7: New stewardess Courtney Skippon claims she isn't used to 'servitude'
Get ready for a fresh dose of drama and craziness straight from the mega-yacht, Valor as it heads to Thailand.
Bravo’s hit reality show ‘Below Deck’ is back with the much-awaited season 7. Get ready for a fresh dose of drama and craziness straight from the mega-yacht, Valor as it heads to Thailand. The premiere episode has already set the stage for the drama in store for us. Season 7 saw Captain Lee Rosbach, Kate Chastain and Ashton Pienaar return to the series.
While Captain Lee Rosbach and Kate returned to their previous roles of captain and chief stewardess, Ashton has been promoted to boson from his previous position as a deckhand. Kate’s team comprises of two new cast members- Simone Mashile, who serves as a second stew, and Courtney Skippon, as the third stewardess.
Kate calls in the girls for a meeting to understand them better and our new girl Courtney clearly expresses her dislike towards being a part of the serving side of the service industry. In her green room interview, the new cast member explains how she believes that she is better suited to be the customer enjoying all the finer things in life rather than fussing over somebody else and also adds that she isn't into "servitude". She also reveals that she hates doing laundry. Pretty ironic that the new stewardess hates being in service.
Throughout the first episode, we see her complaining and cribbing about everything. She initially seems to have a problem with doing laundry and ironing the clothes. But luckily her co-worker, Simone takes over from her and does the ironing of the clothes from her and shows her how to do it. However, our blonde-beauty doesn’t seem to be inclined to learn to do laundry, for she continues complaining about how much she hates doing it and how she is messing it up.
If that wasn’t bad enough, we see her complaining through the course of the episode about how she hates doing her work and would much rather chill and be enjoying the vacation while sipping on some champagne and enjoying the lovely view. When toward the end of the episode Courtney is assigned to visit the beach with the guests to serve them drinks, she can be seen complaining the whole time about her anxiety over getting a tan, and how hard her job is. It was quite annoying to see someone so clueless and self-centered being a part of the service industry. We hope that Courtney’s attitude and behavior get better as the season progresses.
‘Below Deck’ Season 7 airs every Monday at 9 pm ET/PT only on Bravo.
