Rocky Dakota may have convinced the Eros Crew she was a trained chef, but the 2 meals she prepared with cameras rolling left much to be desired.
For the lucky cast who worked 10-14 hours per day, she treated them to baked raw chicken, after to failing to turn the oven on for the first 90 minutes. I guess the culinary school she trained at for less than a year in New York City failed to teach her how ovens work, and how to stop them from catching fire.
Fast-forward to the Below Deck episode “Fire” where we meet Alan Miller and hs family who are on board celebrating Alan’s 50th birthday. Mr. Miller and his group are some of the most polite and well-mannered guests ever to grace the show’s Charters. Unfortunately for the Millers, Chef Leon quit the show with a full-day left on their Bahamian adventure. Captain Lee bought them lunch on shore while the crew scrambled to figure out a dinner plan. The night was to be a formal “White-party” celebration for Alan’s birthday.
Enter “Chef” Raquel Dakota. She had spent her day stripping naked and hurling herself from the yacht to protest Leon Walkers “unfair” treatment by Captain Lee. A boat nearby picked her up and brought her back to the Eros, where she grovelled to Captain Lee promising better behaviour. With no alternative, Chief Stewardess, Kate Chastain, gave Rocky permission to cook for the clients. Rocky attacked the duty with gusto for filming but sabotaged the food for the Millers.
“Trust Me” seems like an odd thing to say when preparing a meal, unless you are trying to convince others that your ideas are tasty when they look anything but. Rocky says it for the first time when she sprinkled Oreo cookie crumbles on a salad.
Why would anyone say 3 or 4 times while preparing a salad course, and raw oysters to “trust me?” It’s completely obvious to Bosun Eddie Lucas after the primary, Mr. Miller, has left the table to vomit that Rocky sabotaged the meal!!
Raquel Dakota is a horrible human being who ruined Alan Miller’s birthday dinner purposely. Who does that? A psycho 3rd stewardess with a penchant for drama and an axe to grind against the crew, that’s who! Mr. Miller never complained about the dinner causing him to become sick while filming the episode. He posted feedback on Facebook 11/25 on the “Below Deck” fan page.
You screwed yourself, Rocky. No restaurant will hire you after seeing your antics on Bravo. Captain Lee gave you great advice in part 1 of the “Below Deck” reunion. He said,”You are the only person in the crew that has not acknowledged and learned from your mistakes.” Perhaps Rocky needs to sort out proper medical attention before attempting a 25th career opportunity this year? Good luck with that dear.
