Adrienne Gang

Adrienne Gang Below Deck

At this point in the current season of Below Deck Mediterranean, it’s tough to find any super fans of Captain Sandy Yawn or Malia White. Captain Sandy’s blatant favoritism has always been an issue among the fans. Then she accused Hannah Ferrier of flushing “narcotics” down the toilet after Malia secretly took a photo of Hannah’s prescription medication and reported her.

Right before that, Captain Sandy had the crew change up their cabin arrangements just so Malia could sleep with her now-ex-boyfriend Tom Checketts (yes, they broke up after all that). Meanwhile, cabin arrangements are a part of Hannah’s job description as Chief Stew. Recently, Captain Sandy infuriated fans even more when she claimed that Malia is “secretly gay” in a video that she recorded for the Cameo app.

Below Deck Mediterranean recap

There was a mutiny of sorts on Below Deck Mediterranean.  It wasn’t Captain Sandy Yawn who was the target, but Chief Stew Hannah Ferrier.  Love her or hate her, Hannah has been with the show since the first season.  While she comes off abrasive and petty, and puts median effort into her job, Hannah should not have been the victim of the conveniently-timed attempt to overthrow her.  Though, without question, Bugsy Drake makes the better Chief Stew.

Fans called out bosun Malia White for her role in exposing Hannah’s reliance on prescription anxiety medication during the most recent episode Captain Sandy’s judgment was also called into question.  But what was their level of involvement?  And did they act on their own initiative?

Below Deck Mediterranean Chef Ben Robinson Debuts New Girlfriend

We’ve met a lot of chefs on Below Deck.  The turnaround is not as high as the deck or interior crew positions, but most of them have left after one season.  Sometimes, as in the case of Mila Kolomeitseva and Leon Walker, they don’t even the last the season.  In both cases, Ben Robinson stepped in to finish the job.

Ben is the OG chef of the franchise.  He was cast in season 1 of Below Deck, back in the days of Adrienne Gang.  When Adrienne left, the glorious Kate Chastain filled the Chief Stew position and the rest was divine reality TV history.  Kate and Ben had a fun, flirty rapport that also included a lot of dry wit and sarcasm.  Ben also has my approval for turning down Below Deck Mediterranean chief stew Hannah Ferrier.  Ben decided to leave yachting for a while after finding love on board with Emily Warburton-Adams.  He has been quiet about his love life since they broke up in 2017.  Now, Ben is sharing a new romance.

Kate Chastain Below Deck

Kate Chastain has been a mainstay on Below Deck for six seasons, but she wasn’t the show’s original chief stew. Longtime fans remember that Adrienne Gang was actually the first chief stew on the show.

She is not a fan of Kate’s, and without any context, it’s logical to assume that she might be upset that Kate has held onto this gig for so long. Well, then again, she’s not the only Below Deck crew member (past or present) that has issues with Kate.

Below Deck - Season 1

Remember when Below Deck was just a newborn babe of a Bravo show, and chief stew Adrienne Gang was the center of the entire crew’s disdain? Well, Adrienne sure does! And she is a teensy bit bitter about how easy the chief stews since season one have had it. At least, that’s the way she sees it!

To be fair, Adrienne was consistently tortured by her second stew, Samantha Orme, who perma-smirked her way through her entire stint aboard Honor, undermining Adrienne’s management efforts at every turn. Adrienne claims, “I think the chief stews since me have had it a lot easier than I did with the girls that they had. The girls that they had actually wanted to do work.”

The show is currently casting for their second season, advertising that they are searching for some "additional cast". 

The posting reveals they are looking for: "additional staff members to work on the boat and appear on the show. We are currently looking for Captains, Mates, Chefs. Chief Stews, Stews, Engineers and Deck Hands."

Bravo's surprising hit Below Deck is taking us inside the world of luxury yacht charters. Despite making me insanely jealous of the guests, I feel nothing but pity for the crew trapped together and forced to cater to every whim of the charter guests. 

And it's enough to make anyone crazy. Clearly. The biggest drama on board so far concerns Kat Held, her love of al-al-al-al-cohol, and her hate of boss Adrienne Gang

“She is absolutely the villain of this show” Kat declares of Adrienne

And Kat is not stopping there! “I found Adrienne to be two-faced,” she explains to In Touch Weekly. “She says she comes across as professional. She was very unprofessional."

I don't know about everyone else, but I secretly love Below Deck. It's like Overboard, but behind the scenes from the servants' perspective. 

On this week's episode Kat Held purportedly got drunk during charter after some unruly and wasted guests sexually harassed her. The guests also happened to be friends with Kat's boss Adrienne Gang.

Instead of defending Kat, Adrienne confronted her about her alleged drinking and the two got into a heated issue in front of co-worker Sam Orme. Kat ended up confessing to Captain Lee that she actually takes anti-anxiety medicine and maybe went a leeettle too far with popping them to handle the stressful guests. But Kat is furious that Adrienne put her in the position to discuss her mental health with her co-workers and boss!

Kat still maintains she wasn't drinking during charter. Ok… Anyway here's what she has to say about the situation.
