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.
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.
The tension between Captain Sandy Yawn and Chief Stew Hannah Ferrierhas 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.
The charter guests on Below Deck Mediterranean provide enough drama to sustain the show, but the antics between the crew members make it even more entertaining to watch.
There has been a season-long love triangle with Joao Franco, Kasey Cohen, and Brooke Laughton. Hannah Ferrier is striking up a romance with Conrad Empson. Meanwhile, Hannah is pretty offended by Brooke’s romantic interest in her sparring partner Joao. There is just so much tension on this yacht and even more drama to come during tonight’s new episode.
Brooke just seems like a nice person who’s doing her job, so it was very interesting watching Andy Cohen pushing her to spill some tea on Watch What Happens Live. Hopefully Hannah wasn’t watching- at least until the very end, when Brooke came to her defense in response to the last viewer question.
