A fast-paced reality show that follows several incredibly busy and ambitious Manhattan women. Watch as they balance envious social calendars, challenging careers, and motherhood, with the hustle and bustle of the big city all around.
Luann de Lesseps,
There is one good thing I must say about 'Below Deck Mediterranean' ~ that this season takes place in the beautiful country of Croatia. And there you have it.
Beginning with the passengers who answered a casting call for the show from an ad placed in 'The Forward Cabin', seeking 'travelers to be treated to the lap of luxury on a yacht in the Mediterranean at a super-discounted rate' (which turns out to be around $10K a week). These temporary cast members were instructed to make outrageous demands on the crew while the yacht sails about. Kind of explains the chef being awoken during the first episode to make nachos for a passenger at 3:00 AM. Reality?
Add to that the crew of beautiful people who man this ship (not an unattractive one in the bunch), who instantly have either a) a dislike for each other or b) are sexually attracted to each other. Scenarios created by the writers to give the viewer some reason to tune-in each week.
Quite frankly, there is nothing really wrong with 'Below Deck Mediterranean', except that the viewer is supposed to believe this is reality TV, when there is absolutely nothing realistic about it at all.
