The head stewart says the third stew didn't take her job "very seriously."

on Jul 9, 2013 - The Dish0

How do you solve a problem like Samantha? If you're Below Deck's head stewart Adrienne Gang, you rule with an iron fist.

So far this season, we've seen her butt heads with Samantha Orme over everything from preparing drinks to taking breaks.

So how come the two aren't getting along?

"I think Sam is a smart, fun-loving girl," Adrienne tells Bravo. "But that she never really took her position as a stew on this yacht very seriously. And I still had a job to do."

Adrienne adds that part of the reason they've clashed is Sam's misunderstanding of her duties. After all, working on a yacht isn't the same as being a guest on one.

"I think Sam came into this experience without fully understanding what the third stew position required," Adrienne adds. "If she had read the information I gave her at the beginning of the trip or done any prior research of her own she would have known that on most yachts of this size the third stew is the lowest rung on the totem pole and therefore relegated to doing nothing but laundry, heads, and beds, as opposed to having anything to do with guest interaction, especially on her first charter."

On last night's episode, Adrienne finally laid down the law with Samantha: she made it clear that if she's not comfortable with her job, she needs to go overboard.

But Sam wasn’t too interested in pleasing Adrienne. “I opened up and told her how I was feeling, and she didn’t even take it into consideration. So why ask in the first place?”

Looking back, Adrienne explains that Sam would have had an easier time on the high seas if she had kept an open mind.

“I think if she had been more open-minded to what yachting is, how it works, and the chain of command, then she would assimilate into the environment much better,” says Adrienne. “Not to mention having a little respect for her superiors.”

Sam, CJ and the alcoholic are disgusting.  They have no work ethic or sense of ownership.  Adrienne did a great job and was very professional.  The others were way out of line and in my world they would have lasted 1 second with those attitudes.

Sam grow up. You have more attitude than intelligence and it is very unflattering. The immaturity and lack of respect is embarrassment not only to you but to everyone who had a hand in raising you. Take some time to step back and look objectively at the choices you make in life and why you make them this type of self evaluation is tough but extremely rewarding. Good luck with your life.

Sam has zero work ethic, and her attitude is terrible. The way she talks to her boss is horribly disrespectful - good luck to her next employer.

If I were Adrienne, Sam would have been gone in the first episode.  She seems unusually immature for a 26 year old and ANNOYING.

God I hope Andy does a reunion with these guys. I so would love an opportunity to tell Sam that no one gives a shit what she did for NASA. She behaves like a spoiled little rich girl. Do your job and shut up.

kat and sam really need to grow up. adrienne is their boss and deserves their respect she has done nothing to deserve the way they treat her. it only shows how immature and unprofessional they are. they are making asses out of themselves.

Sam is unfit as a crew member.  Her rich Daddy girl attitude makes her believe that the guests are peers, and they are not.  Because she doesn't recognize her station, she acts disrespectfully at her boss.  I would have discharged her after the first tour.

adrienne, you have got to stop making it ALL ABOUT YOU. you take everything personally and as a result sam (or anyone else) wll beat you every time.  your insecurities are huge and you let them show by everything you say  why don't you try leading by example and putting the guests first?

Love it how they make Adrienne tower above Sam in this pic, when actually, Sam's about 6 inches taller than her. Someone needs to tell Adrienne that if she wants to get an alpha female's respect, she needs to take a course on how to manage people.

I know I couldn't deal with that smug little smirk for more than five minutes before I would lose it on her.

 @irenesidley ?????  Adrienne is in charge......Sam isn't.  However, Sam seems to think that going up against authority puts her in charge.........I think Adrienne should video Sam's behavior and let Captain Lee decide......he won't tolerate Sam's behavior and Kat is a liar.......
