Last week’s episode ended on a weird note. Some of the charter guests ended up fighting over deckhand James Hough. Meanwhile, Charley continues to get more hate on social media. The show’s new stew, Elizabeth Frankini, decided to share some support for now-apologetic charter guest.

“If you truly love what you do & who you are & believe in yourself to handle whatever is thrown your way, you gotta just continue to work your a** off & EMBRACE EVERYTHING,” Elizabeth wrote in her post. “Let this serve as a reminder to not jump SO quickly to conclusions about people you hardly even know yourselves -crew & guests. Take the best & leave the rest. ”
