Below Deck

Below Deck Mediterranean’s Conrad Empson Discusses His Relationship With Hannah Ferrier

When Season 3 of Below Deck Mediterranean started out, it seemed like Conrad Empson’s main storyline would be his work tension with João Franco. In a way more interesting turn of events, the baby-faced bosun has struck up a romance with chief stew Hannah Ferrier– an “older woman.”

These two have been accused of being more into each other than their work by both João and their boss Captain Sandy Yawn. Conrad stopped by Watch What Happens Live to answer a lot of questions about Hannah discuss Season 3 with Andy Cohen.

Below Deck Mediterranean - Hannah & Joao

Why are so many people unhappy on Below Deck Mediterranean? From the crew to the guests – why must all these interlopers to the bucolic scenery, ancient towns, and stunning blue water bring their cloudy, crusty, rosè tears, tequila tantrums, and salty swimsuit bottom dramas?

WHO LOOKS FOR REASONS TO COMPLAIN AMID ALL THAT BEAUTY? Well OK, I could see being unhappy with Joao Franco, but I can’t see willingly exposing yourself to his predatory nonsense ergo looking for reasons to be unhappy with him (I’m looking at you, Brooke Laughton and Kasey Cohen!).

As for everyone else being so sad – maybe it’s the realization that they pale miserably in comparison to everything the Mediterranean has to offer, which brings out the worst in these people. They are all the gumballs gunking up the deep blue sea.

Below Deck Mediterranean Preview

This season of Below Deck Mediterranean has been one of my favorites in the franchise and viewers agree. The show is pulling in higher viewer numbers than the Real Housewives series. The combination of juicy crew drama and truly awful charter guests make this show Must See TV! And lucky us, it’s Tuesday again!

The love triangle between Brooke, Kasey, and Joao rages on tonight! Joao sends mixed signals to both of his co-workers and they finally confront him. This guy is going to wind up alone if he doesn’t make a decision soon.

Congratulations are (almost) in order for the cast and crew of Below Deck Mediterranean. The show is on the cusp of securing an Emmy award nomination.

Currently, Below Deck Med is in the running to get a nomination- pending a vote from TV Academy members.

Kasey Cohen

Uh-oh somebody’s lying! On last night’s Below Deck Mediterranean, Hannah Ferrier discovered that Kasey Cohen lied on her CV and is completely unqualified to work on a super yacht! Meanwhile Joao Franco sucks up to Captain Sandy Yawn in an effort to undermine Conrad Empson while he’s crazy in love. The good news is we finally got some good guests! Not only were they not horrible, they were truly delightful.

The episode opens with the crew out on the town. Brooke Laughton is sulking on a dirty street corner like the naughty school girl she swears she’s not and gives Adam Glick some word salad about how much she likes him. When Adam doesn’t reciprocate she bursts into tears. I would’ve sworn Adam was the type who couldn’t resist a damsel in distress – turns out I was wrong! He gently explains to Brooke that she’s just drunk, lonely, and emotional. (Does anyone else suspect producers put her up to this to try and tempt Adam back into Sandy’s trap?!)

Below Deck Mediterranean Preview: Hasta Barista, Baby!

Happy Tuesday! We have another new episode of Below Deck Mediterranean on tap tonight! We’re only six episodes in and we don’t see any signs of the drama slowing down! If you need to catch up on last week’s episode, read it here.

Tonight we’ll see Hannah Ferrier’s ongoing struggle with her under-performing Third Stew, Kasey Cohen. Things comes to a head when she learns Kasey lied on her resume. Kasey claims she had a friend “polish” her resume and she didn’t look it over before submitting it. She also comes clean about her “barista” training, which involved pushing a button on a coffee machine, not like “formal Starbucks” type training. I have to wonder – why didn’t this come out during her interviews? Those would’ve been important things to cover, no?

Fredrik Eklund Doesn’t Think He Would Work With Bethenny Frankel Again; Captain Sandy Yawn Weighs In On Hannah Ferrier’s Argument With João Franco

There is a lot of great programming on Bravo aside from the Real Housewives franchise. Below Deck Mediterranean is going strong during its third season. Million Dollar Listing New York just started up again on Monday and the drama is already good.

Captain Sandy Yawn and Fredrik Eklund visited the Bravo clubhouse as Andy Cohen’s guests on Watch What Happens Live and there was a lot to discuss.

Hannah Ferrier & Horrible Charter Guests

Last night’s Below Deck Mediterranean was a Las Vegas all you can eat buffet from guests who treated Adam Glick like a short-order cook instead of a professionally trained chef! (Have I ever felt bad for Adam before? Did he deserve it after last season’s blatant disregard of guests’ wants?)

Anyway, the whole thing made me glad my puny microwave is the only automatic chef in my house!

I get it. These people, led by “Honey (the name of a stripper whose act is ‘baby spice’), are hungry and they are hungry in a very specific way, like for TOASTED buns and French fries with their steak dinner (that’s pomme frittes to you, mister!), and I understand they become hangry if their food isn’t perfecto, but they needed to drop anchor on their overly-entitled gullets.
