Episode 4 of Below Deck Mediterraneanis on its way tonight and there is just so much going on. As per usual, the yachties have charter guests to please, but there is always so much more going on beyond that.
Yes, the guests can be demanding, but that’s not even the half of it when it comes to this show. When one crew member gets in trouble, there’s a trickle down effect to all of the members below their rank. And then there’s the tension between the crew members- some of it of the romantic variety.
Oh, Below Deck Mediterranean – y’all knew that you better bring your A++ Game when a friend of Captain Sandy Yawn‘s is the primary charter, but unfortunately Adam Glick was the only one studying up on How Not To End Up In The Bad Captain’s Log. Adam has been there, done that and you’d think Hannah Ferrier, a veteran of the naughty list herself, would know better!
Joao Franco is the douche of the high seas. A serious creep who makes my stomach churn like Kasey Cohen‘s aboard a super yacht! After ending their first crew night out by calling Hannah an over-the-hill goat, he bah, bah, blacksheeps about how he doesn’t have to listen to her because he’s his own man, not some chief stew’s bitch! Hannah sniffs that Joao’s nothing but a “chamois technician” – something which requires no skill, but somehow this show manages to find ALL the people who cannot handle the task!
In episode 3 the yachties return from their first drunken night out as a group. After partying a wasted Joao Franco got rude and mouthy with Hannah Ferrier, then stumbled back to the boat to profess his lust for Brooke Laughton. Brooke, feeling vulnerable after recently being dumped, isn’t quite sure how to handle his confession and reveals to her mother that she’s trying to decide between giving Joao a chance or staying single.
Nevertheless, there is still plenty of residual drama from Season 2 that has spilled over into the current season. The first two episodes of Season 3 have been pretty entertaining. Adam and Hannah stopped by the Bravo clubhouse to discuss the season with Andy Cohenduring last night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live.
This season of Below Deck Mediterranean is turning into whatever the ocean version of a trainwreck is? The Titanic? An attack by one-eyed pirates with a taste for five-star cuisine. Anyway, it’s an high seas hot mess and Captain Sandy Yawn better get savvy about the impending crash of her $80M dollar yacht. There ain’t no smooth sailing ahead – especially with these shellfish-fearing hellfish onboard!
The most awful charter guests ever are still, unfortunately, demanding the entire crew stop doing things to make the boat run and go on a scavenger hunt for nuts. These women are nuts, and the only nuts they’re gonna get are walnuts – even though they are also seeking the male variety. Forever out of stock on Motor Yacht Talisman Maiton! Seriously – where do they find these people, I wonder, before learning they are from Atlanta and deciding they are probably somehow related to the Real Housewives from Hell.
Last night was the season premiere of Below Deck Mediterranean Season 3. The scene is set among the beautiful Italian coast, but that’s where the classiness ends!
This year Captain Sandy Yawn will be steering a massive new boat and she has a matching massive attitude. The Motor Yacht Talisman Maiton, for all it’s sensational size, kind of resembles a Marriott on the inside; all dark, heavy colors and dreary overdone rooms. Perfect to match Hannah Ferrier‘s sulkiness as she returns, once again, to the life of a chief stew. Hannah is turning 30 and is tired of serving eggs for ungrateful guests while her own go stale. She is at a precipice and must decide to give up her heart to the high seas, or retire and find Mr. Right. Maybe she could combine these things by marrying a pirate?
