Below Deck

below-deck

As season two of Below Deck Mediterranean cruises on, the tangled web of a love triangle between Chef Adam Glick, Bosun Wesley Wiz Walton, and newly promoted second-in-command, Malia White, is starting to unravel. I bet Malia is really regretting not properly vetting Adam for being a jealous psycho, because it’s really becoming more and more of an issue. Granted, it doesn’t look like Malia is so innocent either – someone needs to pick a coworker to hook up with and just stick with the one. Please, I’m begging you!

Crew drama aside, the most recent charter guests are a real handful, specifically because one of them is a yacht broker, who can easily make and break everyone’s career. So all the Malia nonsense will have to wait while the crew comes together to try and knock the socks off their guests. Too bad the one thing they can’t control is the weather and the weather doesn’t give a flying fig that a yacht broker is on board.

Bobby-Giancola-Captain-License

Even though Bobby Giancola only got into yachting during the first season of Below Deck Mediterranean, the former firefighter seems to be all about the boat life as a part of his long term plan. He is actually working toward becoming a captain himself.

I have no idea what exactly that entails, but I couldn’t imagine how wild the show would get if Bobby was in charge of the boat. I know absolutely nothing about Bobby’s yachting skills  set, but I would love to watch any show where is in the captain role. It would be a hot mess and a half. As polarizing as he is, I would be all for that, but obviously I’m really getting ahead of myself since he hasn’t even secured his captains license yet.

Happy news, Below Deck fans! The show is back for a fifth season – with an almost all-new crew!

Captain Lee Rosbach is back on board and cruising the Caribbean, along with fan favorites Kate Chastain and Nico Scholly. Joining them is a new gang of deckhands and stews and a new chef, too! The newbies includ: Matthew Burns (chef), Brianna Adekeye (stew), Jennifer Howell (stew), Chris Brown (deckhand), Bruno Duarte (deckhand) and Baker Manning (deckhand).

The second season of Below Deck Mediterranean is definitely exceeding all expectations. The drama is never ending. From Malia White’s love triangle with Adam Glick and Wes Walton to Hannah Ferrier’s unexpected hookup with a charter guest, there is something crazy happening during every charter.

Lauren Cohen and Max Hagley have stayed out of the fray (for the most part), but that didn’t stop them for sharing their opinions and hinting at what to expect from the rest of the season when they talked with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live.

Below Deck Mediterranean Recap

Does anyone else hate it when we don’t get a fresh episode for the week? I can’t even remember what I had for breakfast let alone what happened two weeks ago on Below Deck Mediterranean.

Good thing Bravo is there to catch us up with a quick clip of what’s happened in general: Chef Adam Glick spites guests with onions and also hooked up with Deckhand Malia White before the charter started. Chief Stew Hannah Ferrier did some hooking up of her own with a primary charter guest, which led to Christine “Bugsy” Drake to read her private messages with said guest and tell everyone about it. Bobby Giancola and Max Hagley were happy to help spread the gossip. Lauren Cohen was the only one who stayed on Hannah’s side.

Below Deck Mediterranean Captain Sandy Yawn

Even though Captain Sandy Yawn stays out of the crew drama on Below Deck Mediterranean, she does have opinions on all the major story lines that have gone down this season. The biggest story by far is Malia White’s love triangle with Wes Walton and Adam Glick. Other than that, Adam’s comment about Bugsy Drake being a better stewardess than Hannah Ferrier put him at the center of the second biggest issue this season: the stewardess tension.

Captain Sandy is not into the drama enough to truly take sides, but she does have some words of wisdom and personal insight about both of these dramatic situations.

Malia White

Nearly all the guys on this season of Below Deck Mediterranean has a thing for Malia White, but the love triangle with Adam Glick and Wes Walton has dominated the story lines. And now Malia is taking ownership for her role at the center of this drama and doing her best to explain herself.

Malia is not an evil villain by any means, but she definitely got caught up in the boy madness and she’s apologizing for all of the drama.

Hannah Ferrier’s got no shame in her game, and I kind of love her for it! After kissing Greek God-like charter guest, Jason, on last week’s Below Deck: Mediterranean, the canoodling couple were outed when first stew Bugsy Drake found Hannah and Jason‘s texts on the yacht’s master iPad. Hannah calls out Bugsy and Bobby Giancola’s reading of the private messages – and their Scooby Doo antics afterward – as immature.

Hannah first explains the kiss heard round the mega yacht: “Jason and I had a lot of chemistry as soon as he came on board, but it really went against my rules to hook up with a charter guest! But after the few weeks I had had dealing with the new crew, it was nice to get some positive attention.”
