Below Deck Mediterranean Recap: I Ain’t Saying Eur(o) Goldigger

The ship pretty much hit the fan on last night’s Below Deck Mediterranean. I think y’all would agree that A YACHT happened. So sorry. The show started where last week’s episode ended. The chief stewardess and the bosun were in hot water with the captain.

Following Hannah Ferrier’s banishment to her cabin, Captain Sandy Yawn shrieks for Conrad Empson so she can lay into him about indirectly overworking Brooke Laughton. Sandy gave Hannah explicit instructions to return to the yacht after one quick Diet Coke. Given they were gone three hours, that must have been a massive Polar Pop of the D.C. (with that amazing pellet ice, obviously).

Captain Sandy confronts Hannah

It would be so interesting to know who is really doing the hiring on Below Deck Mediterranean. Yes, Captain Sandy Yawn is in charge of the yacht, but this is also a reality TV show.

Is a casting director making these decisions or is Captain Sandy? It seems to be the former since it’s clear that Captain Sandy cannot stand Hannah Ferrier, yet she is still the Chief Stew of this yacht.

Instagram Roundup

This week, your favorite reality TV stars were all about their love lives on Instagram.

Million Dollar Listing star Fredrik Eklund and his husband Derek Kaplan had an elaborate breakfast with their twin babies. Real Housewives of Potomac star Ashley Darby went rafting with her husband Michael Darby. Vanderpump Rules cast members James Kennedy and Raquel Leviss went to lunch with a friend. Terry Dubrow shared a selfie with is wife Heather Dubrow.

Even though Hannah Ferrier is the only original cast member who is still on Below Deck Mediterranean, she is far from the most liked- at least among the crew members. Who doesn’t she have tension with on that yacht? It seems like she’s either at odds with someone, or getting along with her enemy’s enemy out of spite.

When Joao Franco and Colin Macy-O’Toole appeared on Watch What Happens Live this week, they had a lot to say about Hannah. Spoiler alert: it was not overwhelmingly positive.

Hannah with Kenny

While Hannah Ferrier was lazing in bed, having GrubHub show up food delivered by adoring servants and generally ignoring her responsibilities, everything else on Below Deck Mediterranean was smooth as a rubber slide covered in dish detergent!

The guests – the infamous, notorious, dastardly anti-onionists Kenny and Amber were happy, the crew was unified, Conrad Empson was able to set up the slide without a powerpoint presentation from Joao Franco, and even Kasey Cohen managed to activate the coffee machine without a Willy Wonka like explosion. The common denominator here has to be Hannah – either that or the no onions. There’s no way I’m blaming Jamie Jason for anything.

Hannah Ferrier

The tension between Captain Sandy Yawn and Chief Stew Hannah Ferrier has been building for the past two seasons of Below Deck Mediterranean. Aside from the preexisting tension, Hannah’s romance with the boat’s Bosun Conrad Empson seems to be a distraction from both of their jobs. And that is something does not sit well with Captain Sandy, of course.

But does Captain Sandy have a valid point or is she biased because of her blatant dislike for Hannah? Could it be a combination of both? Then again, Joao Franco romanced Kasey Cohen and Brooke Laughton this season and none of them have suffered Captain Sandy’s wrath as a result.

Conrad Empson faces Sandy's wrath

After the success of Below Deck Mediterranean, it makes sense that the people behind Below Deck would want to add another spin-off to the franchise, tentatively titled Below Deck Sailing.

Now it’s reported that there is a third Below Deck show in the works, but this one is going to be a little bit different.

Instagram Roundup:

After years of hating on Lala Kent for her private jet access, all of the female cast members from Vanderpump Rules caved and took her up on the offer to take a trip in the PJ. Yes, you read that right: ALL of the female cast members from Vanderpump Rules were on the same trip. Stassi Schroeder, Brittany Cartwright, Scheana Marie, Ariana Madix, Kristen Doute,  and Katie Maloney all went on a girls trip- which was hopefully filmed for the show and chock full of some drama.

Other reality TV stars enjoyed the best of what the summer  weather has to offer. Teen Mom cast member Leah Messer took her three daughters to the beach. Real Housewives of Orange County alum Heather Dubrow enjoyed some pool time with her daughters. New Jersey Housewife Teresa Giudice played on the beach with her youngest daughter Audriana Giudice.
