Below Deck Mediterranean Season 2

Below Deck Mediterranean

There are so many boating metaphors we can use when it comes to Below Deck Mediterranean but I’m going to skip those for now and draw on an analogy of sorts to describe this episode: above deck on the Sirocco, everything looks perfect and pretty but just below water, trouble is lurking. I’m not just talking about the rising tension (both sexual and otherwise) between the crew, I’m also talking about the yacht itself, which is experiencing problem after problem (after problem). First, the Sirocco was drifting too close to the rocky shoreline, putting to boat in harm’s way, along with everyone on it.This episode, it’s the anchor chain that has twisted to the point of no return.

But before we tackle the anchor problem, we still have to fix the original issue in progress, which is the yacht drifting into the rocks. The wind has picked up and Captain Sandy Yawn can’t deny that they are getting closer and closer to the rocky shoreline, which makes for great scenery, but would be really bad to get too close to (which is kind of how I view Chef Adam Glick).

Bobby Giancola sure has a lot to say about his epic display of immaturity on Below Deck Mediterranean lately! He has taken his fight to twitter to defend his honor – or lack thereof. After facing off with Hannah Ferrier on land and on sea (otherwise known as the Watch What Happens Live clubhouse and a yacht, respectively), Bobby is a wee bit irate with people not knowing “the full story.” Which would make him look less like a horse’s a$$, one presumes? Tell us more about this “full story,” Bob!

After Lauren Cohen wouldn’t come to Bobby’s defense this week in backing up his claims that Hannah “c*ck blocks” him, twitter peeps wondered why Bobby has to be so aggressively sexual with everyone in his path? Bobby fired back online, claiming, “It’s a figure of speech. I chose a poor group of words in the moment. What I meant was that she consistently tells women to back away from me.”

Below Deck Mediterranean recap

Last week’s episode of Below Deck Mediterranean showed us why a crew of young, good looking people who like to hook up with one another makes for great reality TV. We rejoin the Sirocco mid-blow up, with Chief Stew Hannah Ferrier and Deck Hand Bobby Giancola, continue to go toe-to-toe over what essentially boils down to a really bad case of blue balls for the night. That’s right, Viewers, they are drunkenly fighting over whether or not Hannah ruined Bobby’s chances of possibly hooking up with fellow Deck Hand Malia White.

Ahhh, this reminds me of the good ole days when I was young and carefree, going out and getting wasted with my friends on the Croatian coastline and then coming back to the yacht and arguing about who I get to hook up with. Oh wait, sorry, no that wasn’t me, because that isn’t a real problem or a real lifestyle that anyone can relate to so can these guys please spare me of all the dramatics? I know, I know, I sound bitter and I guess I am but I would like to move on from something so silly at this point. But alas, if we moved on, there wouldn’t be much for Bobby to throw a fit about and BOY, is he ever throwing a fit. My man Bobby really needs to get laid because he is just not letting this issue go and he’s still grumbling about it the next morning.

After deckhand Bobby Giancola flipped the frigg out on chief stew Hannah Ferrier on Below Deck Mediterranean this week, viewers may be wondering how they’ll plan to move on in the days to come? Short answer: They won’t!

As their recent epic throwdown on Watch What Happens Live displayed – in which Bobby salaciously accused Hannah of “offering herself” to him behind the scenes – Hannah and Bobby have ZERO love for one another. Hannah chalks their dynamic up to Bobby’s extreme immaturity. Yup. Sounds about right to me!

Below Deck Mediterranean Recap

Despite all the drama Below Deck Mediterranean was teasing at the end of last week’s premiere, I still expected at least a few more episodes of smooth sailing until we saw anything major happen between the crew. But this week blew that assumption right out of the water as we were treated to Bobby Giancola’s weird game of cat and mouse with pretty much anyone who has a vagina.

Lord help you if Bobby has you in his sights because he will latch on like the overly tattooed python he is and attempt to squeeze every last ounce of refusal out of you and make you his woman. The only lady willing to stand up to this menacing goon is Chief Steward and defender of helpless female deckhands everywhere, Hannah Ferrier. Say what you want about Hannah being stuck up or annoying, when it comes to helping a sister out, she is right there, ready for battle like Wonder Woman (in a yachting outfit).

Below Deck Mediterranean Season 2 captain Sandy

Below Deck Mediterranean is sailing into its second week with first female leader, Captain Sandy Yawn, at the helm – and she doesn’t plan on taking flack from anyone! That didn’t stop some of her new crew from questioning her right out of the gate, however. Captain Sandy says getting push-back early on is par for the course, though, and plans to lead by example to keep them in line.

Yawn explains her strategy: “Being a female captain in this industry is challenging and inspiring because I thrive on problem solving. Being a woman in the male dominated yachting world is an advantage due to my ability to multi task while managing the emotions of the crew. I choose not to come from a place of power and control and it really, really works.”

Below Deck Mediterranean recap

I was pretty excited to learn Bravo renewed Below Deck Mediterranean after a jam packed season one. Maybe it’s the fighting and staff hook ups, maybe it’s the colorful, international cast, but mostly, it’s the backdrop of the gorgeous Mediterranean that I can’t get enough of. From my couch here in the good ole U-S-of A, a yacht sailing around Croatia is just what I need to remind myself that there is more adventure in the world than making it out of Target without spending a week’s paycheck. Sigh.

This season, the crew is sailing the seas on the Sirocco and Chief Steward Hannah Ferrier and Deckhand/Horny Bro Bobby Giancola have returned, much to my delight. Bobby is new and improved after quitting his fire fighter job, losing his spot on the shirtless fire hunks calendar, and getting some clear braces after all those fat tips from last season. What hasn’t improved is his high school level of immaturity when it comes to the ladies.

Ahoy! Below Deck Mediterranean is back! And with it comes Bravo’s first ever female captain, Sandy Yawn. Previews suggest that Captain Sandy is just the sort of no-nonsense leader we like to see, bringing plenty of experience and gravitas to the job. She’ll need it to rein in the typical gang of hooligans Bravo rounds up to destroy property and embarrass themselves run Below Deck’s charter season.

Maintaining that she’s not “bossy or b*tchy,” Sandy does argue that she keeps her crew in line. “I will like slap them across the head and go, ‘How old are you? You’re 24? Okay, well you’re acting like you’re 12.'” Speaking of 12-year olds, at least Sandy doesn’t have to contend with the likes of Danny Zureikat, as he’s busy “making moments” elsewhere these days. Although, former deckhand Bobby Giancola and chief stew Hannah Ferrier from season one may keep her busy enough!
