On the Below Deck episode “Under Cover Boss,” it’s the crew’s day off. At the pool Chef Matt Burns is hanging out with deckhand Bruno Duarte and tells him he wants to hire him as a sous chef. Bruno’s boss, Senior Deckhand Nico Scholly agrees to the collaboration “after 4 o’clock.” Then Nico hangs out with Stewardess Brianna Adekeye on lounge chairs and hold hands. And Bosun EJ Jansen follows deckhand Baker Manning as she goes into the gift shop. (Note to EJ: Baker loves animal prints!)
In the gift shop, EJ tells Baker: “Oh, Baker, Baker. I’m not going to lie, I feel the most friendly with you for some reason, I don’t know why, but…” She giggles. He tries on a straw hat. Baker tells him with a wave of a hand, “Just know that, I like you.” EJ is ecstatic to learn that there’s potential with Baker. “Holy smokes,” he says. Below Deck airs Tuesdays at 9pm on Bravo.
