I don’t know why Hannah is so uptight about being called materialist. I mean, basically, all she talks about, except when she’s complaining about how overworked, tired, and exhausted she is, are her possessions. You’d think a woman who prefaces the description of every item she owns with a whiny “It’s EXXXPENSIVEEEE (to be me)” would happily revel in being described as materialistic, the way a Kardashian does. This is akin to calling them saint-like and altruistic. They have punted right over the top of the Maslow’s hierarchy of needs to plonk a gold star on top.
Captain Sandy Yawn
Yes, Captain Sandy Yawn is actually in charge of the yacht on Below Deck Mediterranean. There is no disputing that, but there is also no disputing that this show has always come back to Hannah Ferrier. Three seasons in, she is the only original cast member who is still on the show and it’s for good reason.
Is she the best Chief Stew? Not necessarily, but she is the core of this show. Pretty much every episode involves multiple Hannah-centered story lines and tonight’s episode is no different.
Oh to have Hannah Ferrier‘s life on Below Deck Mediterranean: lounging around worrying over boy drama, smoking, folding some napkins before hopping on boats to party with guests, and then the audacity of being called a gold digger because she expects her men to have big, bulging … savings accounts. Oh Hannah, put down the cancer sticks and get a reality check!
Hannah and Conrad Empson are fighting over money. Specifically: this little Euro spent on Hannah’s wine, that little Euro spent on expensive wine and dinner Hannah chose, and several piggy little Euros went to more of Hannah’s expensive boozy tastes; so one huffy cougar is blowing Conrad’s meager savings right away!
The only original cast member who is still on Below Deck Mediterranean is Hannah Ferrier. It’s (most likely) not because she is the best Chief Stew. Captain Sandy Yawn, Brooke Laughton, and Kasey Cohen have been complaining about Hannah’s (lack of) work ethic all season.
Where does Hannah succeed? She does make for great TV. Almost every single storyline centers around Hannah. And so does tonight’s new episode.
That last episode of Below Deck Mediterranean made it seem like Hannah Ferrier and Captain Sandy Yawn’s working relationship was done for good. They’ve had tension all season long and then all hell broke loose when Hannah went off with the charter guests to sip a soda without keeping her boss in the loop.
On last night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live, Hannah dished on where she and Captain Sandy stand these days. Kasey Cohen shared her side of that love triangle with Joao Franco and Brooke Laughton. Jamie Jason was there- just staying out of the drama like she has been all season long on Below Deck Med.
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).
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.
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.
