Below Deck Mediterranean, the younger sibling to Below Deck, has been one of the most successful reality show spinoffs. Understandably so, as the opportunity to watch beautiful people in stunning locations exhibiting sometimes ugly behavior is just too good to resist! Too much food, too much alcohol and non-stop drama make for great television. Last season, the yacht crew and guests sailed into the beautiful ports of Italy, which made me want to chuck it all and fudge my resume to apply to be a deckhand.
During Season 3, we were treated to crew hook-ups, unruly guests, alcohol-fueled melt-downs and endless tension between Captain Sandy Yawn and Chief Stewardess Hannah Ferrier. And now, the wait for a new season of merriment on the high seas is just about over!
Ahoy, readers! I must announce all of my nautical dreams and wishes have come true in the form of another series from the very popular Below Deck franchise! Always a fan of watching any and all antics on the high seas, another form of this show brings me so much joy and makes me downright giddy with excitement. This time the action on the high seas will happen aboard a luxury sailing charter rather than the charter yachts we have become accustomed to.
We are coming off the most recent season of Below Deck where we witnessed wild (“I’m a boat captain too you know!”) Rhylee Gerber yelling “Got it!” to long-suffering Bosun Ross Iniaa minimum of 15 times per episode. And, of course, the amazing working relationship between Queen of the High Seas of Chief Stew-dom Kate Chastainand Josiah Carter. #bestseasonever
Happy almost birthday to some of our favorite (and least favorite) reality TV stars! February is a big month for birthdays. Unfortunately, we will not be invited to any of these celebrations. Even so, we all know how much reality stars love a good party, especially when they’re the center of attention.
This means that we should all expect some Instagram photos and videos from these stars and their friends in February. We can all live vicariously through the fun thanks to social media.
Below Deck Mediterranean will be back for Season 4. Bravo revealed the familiar faces in the cast lineup for the next season. Captain Sandy Yawn is back to navigate the picturesque waters of the Mediterranean. This time in South of France.
Hannah Ferrier returns as Chief Stew. That’s to be expected. She’s been with the show since the beginning. It doesn’t seem like any of her second or third stews ever have any longevity though. Brooke Laughton andKasey Cohenwill not be returning.
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.
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.
