Well, well, well. It’s only the third episode of Below Deck Mediterranean and we already have an interior war on our hands. Last week ended with a standoff between Hannah Ferrier and Lara Flumiani, with the chief stew calling Captain Sandy Yawn in to mediate in the standoff with her subordinate second stew. And this week picks up right where we left off in the heat of the battle.
At first, Captain Sandy cuts Hannah off, telling her to let Lara speak, but the captain eventually sides with Hannah after hearing the second stew’s side of the story. In my eyes, it’s a classic Below Deck story. Basically, Hannah is angry at Lara for having an attitude about every little thing and Lara is angry at Hannah for she’s being spoken to. It seems like every season, on every franchise, this issue boils down to one thing: developing an effective management style. However, as much as Hannah’s lack of leadership would probably grate on me too, Lara certainly takes her attitude problem to another level. And it’s only been one charter!
There’s a new episode of Below Deck Mediterranean tonight. The tensions between Hannah Ferrier and Lara Flumiani continues. And while this is apparently Hannah’s last season of Below Deck Mediterranean, this might be the first one where the whole fandom is actually behind her. She has Lara to thank for that. Lara is extremely disrespectful as far as stews go. And she’s not providing much entertainment.
On tonight’s episode, Lara just disappears, somehow, even though they’re all living and working in close quarters on a boat. Just fire her already, Captain Sandy Yawn. Lara’s drama isn’t even enjoyable to watch. She is just so frustrating.
Malia White is back on Below Deck Mediterranean this season and has strictly sworn off getting into another “boatmance” this time around.
In a recent interview, the newly-promoted bosun looked back on her Season 2 fling with Adam Glick. She also offered her take on the chef’s Below Deck Sailing Yacht romance with Jenna MacGillivray.
Last night, Below Deck Mediterranean star Hannah Ferrier broke the news that she’s pregnant with her first child. She didn’t share how far along she is in her pregnancy, the baby’s gender, the name of the father, or any other details.
However, soon after her social media announcement, she shared some new information.
Wow. Lara Flumani has set a new record for the worst stews in the history of Below Deck Mediterranean. And that is a show that has no shortage of emotionally challenging stewardesses! It’s almost like the editors wanted to give Hannah Ferrier a redemption send-off so they hired a person who would definitely make Hannah look good, no matter what.
Lara and Hannah just can’t seem to find any common ground. I blame Lara who views the entire world as being made of extra sharp knives she has to walk over. I refuse to believe she was some sort of super stew, as she claimed on her CV.
Lara has decided that Hannah is not her boss because she doesn’t like to be bossed, whereas Hannah has decided that Lara definitely needs to be bossed. And sassed. Honey. While the guests are playing an after-dinner drinking game, Lara and Hannah are arguing while clearing the table. This all came about because Lara feels condescended to by Hannah requesting she do 3rd stew responsibilities because she has a bad attitude. So hat does Lara do but fight bad attitude with a bad attitude.
Congratulations to Below Deck Mediterranean Chief Stew Hannah Ferrier!! During the season 5 premiere episode, she revealed that she was dating someone and for the first time, she was with a guy who she could envision herself marrying and having children with.
Well, clearly, her intuition was on point. Tonight, Hannah announced that she is pregnant with her first child. No wonder she’s done with Below Deck Mediterranean. It’s still unclear if she quit or got fired, but it would make sense if she decided to step away after finding out that she is pregnant. Who would want to be a pregnant chief stew filming a reality TV show? The job itself seems exhausting enough. Throw in a pregnancy and that would just be a lot to deal with, or so it seems.
Below Deck Mediterranean is back tonight with another new episode. Last week we got to “meet” all of the new crew members in addition to getting reacquainted with Captain Sandy Yawn, Hannah Ferrier, and Malia White.
Right from the jump, Chief Stew Hannah had tension with Second Stew Lara Flumiani. And those issues continue on tonight’s Below Deck Mediterranean episode.
Captain Sandy Yawn got a lot of good news this week, both in her personal and professional life. First, long-time Below Deck Mediterranean nemesis and uninspired chief stew Hannah Ferrier announced that she would not be returning to the series. Then, the Season 5 premiere brought in the highest viewing numbers for a premiere in Below Deck history. Maybe the first piece of news had something to do with the other.
But the best development of this first week in June is that Sandy’s love Leah Shafer is still cancer-free. After announcing her health struggles in September, Leah had gotten a lumpectomy in October to remove a high-risk growth. At the time Leah explained that, “this is what I have: LCIS lobular carcinoma rapid cell growth. So I chose lumpectomy To remove the area of disease/concerned area so it didn’t even have a chance to develop into anything more. LCIS is not considered breast cancer. But it can!! And quickly. It’s early signs of breast cancer.”
