Bravo’s “Below Deck Down Under” Season 2 is currently the face of big controversy on the network right now and the cast members who were fired are speaking out!
Episodes six and seven of Below Deck Down Under Season 2 sparked conversation.
Episode six saw production intervene when a crew member entered the bed of another unconscious crew member. And episode seven ended with another crew member fired for making repeated unwanted advances on a coworker.
Bosun Luke Jones and second steward Laura Bileskalne were both fired for misconduct. After a night of drinking, Jones who appeared to be completely naked went into Margot Sisson’s cabin and got in her bed. Both production staff and chief steward Aesha Scott had to break down the door to force Jones out. He was sent to a hotel and then later fired.
Despite Kodra rejecting her advances multiple times, Laura kept repeatedly touching him and trying to kiss him. The same night Jones went into Sisson’s cabin, Bileskalne went into Kodra’s and tried to kiss him/massage him. Once again, production was forced to intervene and get Bileskalne to leave. Captain Jason fired Bileskalne that same episode.
Laura is speaking out:
Let us know your thoughts!?
Captain Jason and Chief Stew Aesha reunite for an unforgettable, full-throttle charter season with a lively new crew and wild guests in the stunning waters of Cairns, Australia – the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef.
Jason is at the helm of the vintage M/Y Northern Sun, where he navigates tumultuous crew dynamics and unprecedented shake-ups throughout the season. Each charter includes nonstop adventure and breathtaking underwater sight-sea-ing, but unruly guests break Jason’s rules, putting their holiday in jeopardy. Now a more seasoned leader, Aesha takes on some of the biggest obstacles of her career while looking out for the crew’s well-being. Mouth-watering menus and flavorful spreads delight the guests, but frustrations simmer between Chef Tzarina and Jason when he assists in the galley.
Initially understaffed, the deckhands make costly errors as they struggle to find their stride on the unpredictable, aging vessel. The interior experiences smooth sailing until a clash of work styles creates a rift between the stews. Unexpected newcomers rock the boat throughout the season, including a shocking franchise crossover with the arrival of a polarizing familiar face. A slew of hook-ups, break-ups, and a rare “love pentagon” leaves the crew reeling as tension spills over on deck.
“Below Deck Down Under” is produced by 51 Minds, with Nadine Rajabi, Mark Cronin, Cristina Lopez, Jill Goslicky, Tania Hamidi, Christian Sarabia and Zachary Klein as executive producers.
