There’s a new episode of Below Deck Mediterranean on tonight and it seems like everyone is getting a bit of cabin fever at this point in the charter season.
Chef Kiko Lorran struggles through the first day of the charter. At one point, a charter guest tells Captain Sandy Yawn that both the food and the service were “average.” Ouch. As a result, Captain Sandy gives Kiko an ultimatum. He needs to “wow” the charter guest, otherwise, she’s going to find another chef for the yacht. Ouch (again).
Wow, what an episode! Lat night on Below Deck Mediterranean, we finally got the answer as to why Pete Hunziker has stuck around long past his firing from the show. And the answer is a tried-and-true reality TV staple, yachties: so we, the viewers, could witness his downfall.
That’s right, it looks like Creepy Pete is on his way out. Or at the very least, this is the beginning of the end for the disgraced deckhand, who was unceremoniously booted by Bravo after he posted a vilely racist/sexist/downright disgusting meme on social media. But let’s not get too ahead of ourselves and back up to the top of the hour, shall we?
During last week’s episode of Below Deck Mediterranean, Chef Kiko Lorran was put under a lot of pressure when he had to cook a 72-plate dinner for some demanding charter guests. But, that doesn’t mean this week’s charter is going to be any easier for him. Kiko is faced with another challenge tonight.
Meanwhile, Third Stew Jessica More struggles to fulfill her duties following an injury. Will she be able to keep her spot on the boat? But she’s not the only stewardess in a struggle this week. Even though they kind of/sort of made peace, the tension between Hannah Ferrier and Bugsy Drake is still there. And we all know that Captain Sandy Yawn is going to side with
anyone who is not Hannah Bugsy if the two of them get into an argument.
Jessica More has a lot to “puzzle” over. The latest episode of Below Deck Mediterranean had her questioning whether to trust deckhand Rob Westergaard with her burgeoinng feelings for him. Rob claimed to be in an open, casual relationship and free of obligation to explore his feelings for Jessica. But shortly before wooing Jessica into his bunk for the night, Rob shared a picture of himself with his girl back home. The post indicate anything but casual feelings. Of course, Chief Stew Hannah Ferrier saw it and told her stew. Hannah also confronted Rob about the situation. His reply was that he had broken things off with his lady on land to pursue things with Jessica.
It’s the tale as old as time. Yachties and Below Deck fans have seen how this will play out. It’s easy to forget your life on land as you traverse the wide, endless ocean. Accountability is minimal and it’s just too easy to claim open relationship status. Even if you are rooting for Rob and Jessica, the odds of things working out long-term just don’t seem to be in their favor.
Casting for Below Deck Mediterranean functions like any other reality TV show. It’s all about aesthetics and the drama factor. How will these set of characters mesh so that there’s the right amount of hookups, fights, and good times?
Production erred big time when casting Pete Hunziker this season, but the rest of the cast has been very refreshing especially with the return of Bugsy Drake and Malia White. Of course Bravolebrities also have to make the rounds on Watch What Happens Live, so a charismatic or funny personality is always in order.
Reality TV stars are quick to take on new ventures, gimmicks, and social media exposure. Some of them seek out casting roles to promote their wares. They have goals that outlast their estimated fifteen minutes of fame.
Although, Captain Sandy Yawn is clearly going to be a permanent fixture on Below Deck Mediterranean. Despite the job security, she too is putting her name on a new project. Captain Sandy is opening a restaurant.
Welcome back to another week of Below Deck Mediterranean: Docked Edition. That’s right yachties, we are still stuck on the dock. Which is basically every charter guest, captain and real yachtie’s worst nightmare.
This week, the crew’s third charter remains all tied up with nowhere to go. However, that doesn’t stop the charter season — or the drama — from creating waves aboard The Wellington. From Chef Kiko Lorran being tasked with a nearly insurmountable challenge to Hannah Ferrier and Bugsy Drake finally confronting their lingering tension from charter seasons past, the episode does a decent job of serving up the smoke and mirrors to distract us all from the fact that this boat’s not leaving the harbor.
Below Deck Mediterranean is back with an all-new episode tonight. Chef Kiko Lorran has the challenge of cooking for extra people when the charter guests invite randoms to join them for a six-course meal on the yacht.
Hannah Ferrier and Bugsy Drake’s residual drama resurfaces tonight. Will the ladies just have a mature conversation about moving on and moving forward? Or will things get heated this early in the season?
