Malia White Tom Checketts Below Deck Mediterranean

When it comes to my sh*t list, there are few people who are higher than Below Deck Mediterranean’s Malia White. Maybe Lisa Rinna or Teddi Mellencamp. But that’s definitely it.

I never really cared for Malia from the get go but after her snitching on Hannah Ferrier, I was done. Her defense of getting someone fired over a mental health issue was BS. With a capital B. So forgive me if I spend this story griping about Malia and the karma that has seemingly come her way.

As a quick recap, once Chef Kiko Lorran was fired, Malia’s boyfriend, Tom Checketts, conveniently came to visit and fill the slot as chef. Which led to Malia to throw a fit about everyone changing bunks to accommodate their relationship. Because who cares about the rest of the crew when your boyfriend shows up! That’s obviously a rhetorical question. When Hannah didn’t want to move, Malia just so happened to go running to Captain Sandy Yawn to tell her that Hannah had valium on board. Hence, Hannah’s firing.

So, was it worth it? Sounds like the answer is no. Malia recently posted a not-so subtle break-up-from-Tom announcement on Instagram. In a heavily filtered picture, Malia looks almost unrecognizable, sporting some kind of nightgown and robe ensemble. She’s also holding a glass of white wine as a toast.

Her caption reads, “Cheers to all the ladies out there in their 30’s, single, focused on their careers & that give zero f*cks!” And then she used the hashtags,  “#stayfocused #dirtythirty #bossbabes #thankyounext”. 

Because nothing says you give zero f*cks like making a whole post about your break up. Ammirite, ladies? Like I said before, sorry if I can’t muster up the sympathy over the relationship that led to someone ultimately losing their job. Is that a stretch? Maybe! But I said what I said.

Let’s get real here though. Did anyone really think these two would last? Tom doesn’t exactly strike me as the nicest guy based on his recent interaction with Aesha Scott. Who would have the audacity to be mean to Aesha? Well, Tom. As if that wasn’t bad enough, the preview for this week’s episode features a big Tommy meltdown because….we don’t know. But despite Malia’s attempts to put the coddling of her boyfriend before her job, Tom threatens to walk.

Guess The Wellington wasn’t the only thing that wasn’t working for Tom.

TELL US – DO YOU THINK MALIA AND TOM WERE A GOOD COUPLE? DO YOU THINK TOM WILL WALK OFF THE BOAT BEFORE COMPLETING THE CHARTER? WOULD YOU WANT TO SEE MALIA BACK NEXT SEASON?
