Below Deck

Captain Sandy Yawn Shares Her Thoughts On Chef Mila Kolomeitseva’s Homophobic Comments

How great is it to finally have Below Deck Mediterranean back for Season 4? The wait between seasons is too long! As many of last season’s crew is back–Captain Sandy Yawn, chief stewardess Hannah Ferrier, newly promoted bosun Joao Franco and everyone’s favorite deckhand, Colin Macy-O’Toole, this week’s premiere episode was like catching up with old friends. Or enemies, depending on how you felt about Season 3! Except for Colin-who doesn’t love Colin?

Most of the drama of the first episode centered around the culinary skills–or the lack of said skills–of new cast member, chef Mila Kolomeitseva. Who can’t even seem to make a simple taco correctly! Although Mila is not off to a great culinary start, an on-camera homophobic comment she made as seen in the show’s previews might be more controversial than her questionable cooking skills. And as you can imagine, Captain Sandy has some thoughts about Mila’s judgmental declaration.

Josiah

Josiah Carter might be the perfect man. Trained butler, check. British accent, check. Loves his mama, check. The Below Deck yachtie also made quite an impression on our High Priestess of Snark, Kate Chastain as well. And that’s no easy challenge, right Caroline Bedol? During his season, fans watched as Josiah navigated through horrible drunken guests. We saw him rise above petty crew members. Josiah also confronted bullying issues he had during his youth. And then there was… the Gold Speedo. Shhhh, I think I hear angels singing behind me.

Anygoldendaddy, after he toured Tahiti under silver fox, Captain Lee Rosbach, Josiah found himself watching, Below Deck Mediterranean. Josiah discovered something to like in Captain Sandy Yawn and the rest of the cast. Sounds like my favorite the second stew might want to continue his journey, but with different scenery this time.

Below Deck Mediterranean Season 4 - Captain Sandy Yawn

The casting team went overboard for season 4 of Below Deck Mediterranean. They combed the globe hoping to find the most incomprehensible accents and ridiculous people possible. I say, they succeeded, because last night the craziest, most outrageous, most shocking thing ever happened when it came to what new chef Mila Kolomeitseva served for dinner!

This season is taking place in the south of France, which is the place both Captain Sandy Yawn and Hannah Ferrier consider the birth of their yachting career. Something tells me the French government only allowed them in with exit visas already issued… Helping Sandy and Hannah terrorize the cobalt blue waters of a country known for its class and culinary sophistication is Joao Franco, newly returned from relationship rehab (I kid) and promoted to boson.

Below Deck Mediterranean Returns For Season 4 Tonight

Finally! Below Deck Mediterranean is back for a new season. It all begins tonight! OG cast member Hannah Ferrier is back as Chief Stew, of course. Will she be super focused on getting her tasks done? She never has been, but she’s always made for some good TV. There’s no doubt she will continue to provide polarizing entertainment in Season 4.

At the helm is Captain Sandy Yawn of course. After his Season 3 love triangle, Joao Franco is back hoping for his shot at a redemption season. And after getting virtually no screen time last year, Colin Macy-O’Toole returns. Maybe we will get to know more about him this time around.

Captain Sandy Yawn Leah Shafer

Fans have watched Captain Sandy Yawn navigate through the rough seas of boat flings with her crew on Below Deck Mediterranean. It was not the epitome of courtship when Hannah Ferrier whined about cigs to Conrad Empson. The same applies to Malia White and her non-Harlequin romance with onion lover Chef Adam Glick and/or the deck crew. Being crammed together like sardines on a yacht often leads to the occasional dalliance, but is rarely a long-lasting event.

But what about the Captain? Extensive traveling and time away from her home base has proven to be a challenge in Sandy’s own personal life.  She has previously discussed the difficulty of maintaining a relationship whilst being in a career where you aren’t just in separate time zones, you can be clear across the world. Well, you can start humming The Love Boat theme song along with me, because things have changed.

BravoCon Is Coming to New York This November

We certainly love our Bravo. And the fandom following each and every show is passionate and loyal.

Well, the opportunity of the life time is coming.  Move over, Comicon. BravoCon is about to sweep the nation. And our fans are even more intense!

Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave

When Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave first joined Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, there was one question on everyone’s minds: What is an accountability coach? She has explained it several times over with countless self-promotion tactics, but it’s still perplexing to some people.

One of those people is Below Deck star Kate Chastain. Not only is she a Bravolebrity, but she’s also a Bravo fan herself. She has been keeping up with Season 9 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and she has a lot of opinions, as per usual.

Below Deck Mediterranean’s Hannah Ferrier Dishes On The Oddest Guest Preference Sheet Request

One of the great things about watching Below Deck Mediterranean is that for 60 minutes (OK-40 minutes on DVR!) is that you can imagine yourself as a guest on a luxury yacht. All without having to mortgage your home for a two day vacation. In three seasons of the show, we have watched charter guests–from the lovable to the loathsome–have their every whim catered to. And who wouldn’t love that?

No request is too big–or too small for the crew to fulfill. From water slides used for five minutes by bored millionaires to the crew-dreaded beach picnic setups, every wish of the guests is indulged. Surly Chief Stewardess Hannah Ferrier frequently grumbles about demanding guests, but usually does what she can to grant their requests. Only because she knows Captain Sandy Yawn is always watching! Recently, Hannah shared the oddest preference sheet request she has ever received from a guest–and it might surprise you in its simple strangeness.
