Frankie, Cameran, Jamie, and Robin are in the kitchen. Robin points out "a big cruise ship" out in the harbor, and asks if anyone has ever been on a cruise. Frankie glances out the window and then stands up and walks away clutching her stomach, saying, "That was so not cool." So my question is, why did she look in the first place? What part of "big cruise ship" did she think she would be able to handle? The other women are confused about what just happened. Frankie goes to the bathroom and splashes water on her face. Frankie interviews that she gets panic attacks when she's around big boats or massive metal structures. That is the craziest thing I've ever heard. How did she think she was going to survive five months in a harbor on the Pacific Ocean without seeing a big ship? Look, I understand that a phobia is, by definition, an irrational fear, and while I have an aversion to belly buttons, I wouldn't really call it a "phobia," because I don't have panic attacks when I see one. But if I did have a phobia, I would either get therapy to get over it, or not put myself in situations where I might activate it. Unless I just wanted attention. I'm not saying Frankie doesn't have a legitimate phobia. I'm just saying that she seems to use that phobia to get attention, instead of trying to deal with and come to terms with it in an adult manner.
