Below Deck Mediterranean

Kate Chastain and Nico Scholly

After what felt like the longest break ever, Watch What Happens Live is back with new episodes. It’s perfect timing with the Below Deck Season 5 premiere, so it was fitting that Kate Chastain and Nico Scholly were Andy Cohen’s guests. They are the only returning crew members from last season.

Kate, Nico, and Andy discussed the Below Deck episode and even shared their commentary on some of the Below Deck Mediterranean drama that went down during its last season. Plus, two Real Housewives rang the door bell for some surprise appearances.

Season 2 of Below Deck Mediterranean was a million times better than anyone ever expected. Minus a couple people who had no story line, everyone else was involved in some epic love triangles and arguments – and it didn’t just stay on the boat. They were beefing in interviews and on social media and I was living for it.

One of the most ridiculous feuds went down during a Watch What Happens Live episode when Hannah Ferrier and Bobby Giancola appeared. It was off the rails. They insulted each other back and forth and Bobby even accused Hannah of “offering herself” to him. It was absolutely insane.

Season 2 of Below Deck Mediterranean was more than I ever hoped it would be. It was truly the gift that kept on giving. There was just so much drama on that boat. One person who had a lot of problems both during the season and after filming wrapped is Bobby Giancola.

His old hookup Lauren Cohen joined the cast and already hated him before the first charter even sailed. He and Hannah Ferrier had the most off the rails argument during their total train wreck of an appearance on Watch What Happens Live. Both ladies had completely different stories than Bobby shared so they’ve been shading each other on social media and in interviews this whole time.

After an entertaining and tumultuous season sailing around Croatia, the cast of Below Deck Mediterranean is on dry land and ready to face the emotional pirates of their past voyage. Heading up this charter is a take no prisoners when it comes to love, Andy Cohen, who wants nothing more than to get to the bottom of Chef Adam Glicks heart. Over and over, we have to relive Adam’s take on Malia White, the one that got away, although she’s really less of “the one that got away” and more of “the one who played two guys like a pro and ended up with the other, who she may or may not be dating still (but we all know she is)”. You’re not fooling anyone, Malia! Just because you come to the reunion dressed like you’re on the Real Housewives of the Croatian Seas, doesn’t mean you get to play the same coy games they do.

Before Andy dives in, he starts with a few ice breakers like, who is still working together? Wesley Wiz Walton and Christine “Bugsy” Drake, who is finally the Chief Stew of something besides her own fantasy world. Who would be Hannah Ferrier’s perfect interior crew? Julia and Tiffany from last season and Lauren Cohen from this season, despite the fact that she talked crap on Hannah the whole time. How did Captain Sandy Yawn feel about Adam mistaking her for the Chief Stew? It doesn’t bother her, she is used to it and she thinks it’s fun to surprise sexist chefs who are too proud to follow a preference sheet people.

We have officially reached the end of the road with Below Deck Mediterranean for another season! Tonight we get just one reunion episode to rehash things and let the cast give extended explanations regarding their behavior, their charter guests and the charter season overall.

Malia White, Wes Walton, and Adam Glick are given a chance to hash out their love triangle. Malia will cop to leading on both Wes and Adam, but tries to justify the why. She does reveal that she and Adam never had sex, although nobody is giving Andy a straight answer on exactly what they consider “sex”.

The second season of Below Deck Mediterranean was a million times better than I ever expected. Most of my enjoyment can be attributed to Malia White’s love triangle with Wes Walton and Adam Glick. When the season ended, Adam had nothing but hate for Malia and he even went to Wes with some text receipts.

Even that damning evidence didn’t turn Wes away from Malia. They ended the season with the promise to pursue their relationship on land, but did they end up dating? Are they still together?

Tonight is the season finale of Below Deck Mediterranean and this time we really mean it. Last week I mistakenly thought it was the finale (minus the reunion next week), but Bravo decided to slip in just one more episode for us, which is great since it’s been one of my favorite Below Deck seasons so far!

On tonight’s finale, Bobby Giancola manages to tick off the primary charter guest when he brings the other guests back from a shopping excursion hours late (delaying dinner until well past 9 p.m.) and then leaves two of guests behind while he returns to the boat with his Tinder love.

On Below Deck Mediterranean, love is kind of like a game of musical chairs – there’s a lot of changing things up and one person is always left out. You can count Chef Adam Glick as the current left out party of one and that is not sitting well with him. Now that he knows he has lost his pre-charter/sort-of relationship with Deckhand Malia White to her boss, Wesley Wiz Walton, he figures it’s time to stop moping and start showing the receipts! As the musical chairs keep on moving, tonight might just be Second Slobber on Deck Bobby Giancola’s chance at love with one of the guests. Never mind that it was only a few episodes ago that he was busy roasting Chief Stew Hannah Ferrier for kissing a guest, Bobby want love and Bobby need love (use your best caveman voice when reading), so it’s OK, right?
