Below Deck Mediterranean is back, and boy is it weird. Coming off of last year’s tumultuous season, Captain Sandy Yawn and her new crew aren’t exactly off to the best start. The chef Mathew Shea had a melt-down prior to the first charter and made the crew put on chefs’ hats for a change. I’m honestly surprised Sandy wasn’t happier — she’s the queen of micromanaging her crew, after all. Also, Chief Stew Hannah Ferrier is out after Malia White tattled to Sandy that she had prescription Valium on board. And newbie Katie Flood has taken her place.
Last season of Below Deck Med was hard to watch. I should’ve just drank every time I heard the words “Maritime Law” said during an episode. Sandy and Mini Sandy’s takedown of Hannah was just wrong and they’re still defending it. Malia has never fessed up for being the rat. Meanwhile, Sandy has doubled down that anyone who takes drugs isn’t able to work on a boat. Even if they’re prescribed for mental health conditions. So it’s not a surprise that fans weren’t enthusiastic about watching another season filled with Captain Sandy’s manipulative behavior and Malia’s ass-kissing.
Like most Bravolebrities, Malia took to Instagram this week to announce the return of Below Deck Med (and do a promo for a sunglasses brand.) However, fans in her comments section were not letting the bosun off the hook after last year. “SNITCH! Bring Hannah back!!!,” one wrote. “People don’t forget,” said another. I have a feeling if the brand she’s doing promo for isn’t going to get many sales out of this post.
Several people refer to Malia as a snitch, a rat or a snake with various emojis in the comments. One fan blames Malia for ruining the show, “and now I can’t wait season 6.” Dang. The insults just kept coming, and one person pointed out that a lot of comments were deleted on the post. I’m surprised she just didn’t turn comments off entirely. “You are conniving and vindictive,” a fan wrote. “Get her off this show,” someone else said. Looks like Sandy isn’t just Malia’s No. 1 fan — she might be her only fan.
One viewer labeled Malia a “mental illness shamer” and others reminded her that karma is, as they say, a bitch. “Yes, you have a great smile, yes a great body too. Yes, you’re competent in your duties and, yes you’re my favorite, but the way you handled the Hannah situation was disappointing to me,” a fan wrote. At least they gave her some compliments before joining the herd of haters.
But, Malia did bring it on herself when she decided to throw Hannah under the bus to benefit her cabin situation. But at least Hannah’s living her best new mommy life on land while Malia and Sandy are receiving all the hate. And that has to be some vindication for her after the way she was let go.
