15ROCKY WOULD'VE 100% BEEN FIRED SOONER
Captain Lee has the authority to fire anyone on the boat he deems unfit. That said, incompetence (to some degree) usually makes for darn good Below Deck, and a rotating cast would make for pretty bad Below Deck. So, some people who wouldn't make an hour in yachting get to
try their hand at it for the full six weeks.
Raquel "Rocky" Dakota was absolutely one of those people. She whined about nearly every aspect of her job as a stewardess, climbed up onto the radar of the boat for an Instagram photo, and, after claiming she went to cooking school, served oysters with a grenadine mignonette. If you're not an oyster person, that's like putting maple syrup on a baked potato.
According to Kate Chastain on an episode of the Watch What Crappens podcast (and our eyes), Rocky would've absolutely been fired for any number of reasons right out the gate, if hired at all. But it looks like the experience might've changed her for the better -- she's worked in yachting since her stint on the show, even working under season 1 alum, Captain Aleks Taldykin.
