Captain Sandy

RHOA-Cynthia-Bailey

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.

Captain Sandy Yawn

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 and Kasey Cohen will not be returning.

New Episode Of Below Deck Mediterranean Tonight: More Drama Between Hannah & Joao AND Hannah, Brooke, And Kasey

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.

New Episode Of Below Deck Mediterranean Tonight: Hannah’s Work Ethic Is Questioned- Again

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.

Hannah Ferrier Says She & Captain Sandy Yawn Have Worked Through Their Issues; Kasey Cohen Dishes On Love Triangle With Joao Franco & Brooke Laughton

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.

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.

Below Deck Mediterranean Star Joao Franco Thinks Things Went Better When Hannah Ferrier Was Sick; Colin Macy-Otoole Thinks Hannah Needs To Mind Her Own Business

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 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.
