Below Deck Mediterranean Star Hannah Ferrier

She’s here! Below Deck Mediterranean alum Hannah Ferrier has confirmed the birth of her first child, a baby girl.

Hannah’s boyfriend Josh is a pretty private guy, whose last name she’s never mentioned, and whose picture Hannah has never shared on social media (per his request), but their baby girl has already made her Instagram debut.

Paget Berry Ciara Duggan Below Deck Sailing Yacht

Paget Berry and Ciara Duggan were the first Below Deck couple that we got to see live and work together.  Most often, a coupled crew member had someone on land that they either stay faithful to or pulled the “open relationship card” like Rob Westergaard.

But Paget and Ciara were together on Below Deck Sailing Yacht.  All.  The.  Time.  They gave off an old married couple vibe with tons of bickering and squabbling, but they were also really in tune with each other and had tender moments as well.  Ciara was so confident in Paget’s feelings for her that she endured an entire season of Georgia Grobler flirting with her man without batting an eyelash, confident that Paget would never stray.

Below Deck Mediterranean Chef Ben Robinson Debuts New Girlfriend

We’ve met a lot of chefs on Below Deck.  The turnaround is not as high as the deck or interior crew positions, but most of them have left after one season.  Sometimes, as in the case of Mila Kolomeitseva and Leon Walker, they don’t even the last the season.  In both cases, Ben Robinson stepped in to finish the job.

Ben is the OG chef of the franchise.  He was cast in season 1 of Below Deck, back in the days of Adrienne Gang.  When Adrienne left, the glorious Kate Chastain filled the Chief Stew position and the rest was divine reality TV history.  Kate and Ben had a fun, flirty rapport that also included a lot of dry wit and sarcasm.  Ben also has my approval for turning down Below Deck Mediterranean chief stew Hannah Ferrier.  Ben decided to leave yachting for a while after finding love on board with Emily Warburton-Adams.  He has been quiet about his love life since they broke up in 2017.  Now, Ben is sharing a new romance.

Below Deck Rhylee Gerber

Below Deck cast member Rhylee Gerber always presented a tough exterior.  Whether it was a simple exchange between coworkers or answering to the lineup of bosuns that tried to manage her, Rhylee’s reactionary attitude seemed to escalate situations.  Of course, the toxic masculinity onboard this past season was beyond acceptable, but dealing with male coworkers often put Rhylee on the defensive.  Recall the season with the perfectly respectful Ross Inia as her bosun.

But that is just in the professional realm.  Rhylee does have a positive male relationship in her life.  That person is her stepfather.  This weekend, Rhylee shared some touching photos of her with her stepfather.

Joao Franco Below Deck Mediterranean

Joao Franco’s first season on Below Deck Mediterranean did not inspire a lot of confidence in his ability for a respectful romantic relationship.  His constant flirtations with Kasey Cohen while wooing a smitten Brooke Laughton was cringe-worthy at best.  Their relationship chugged along for a bit after the season ended.  Brooke went to visit Joao’s family in Zimbabwe, which seemed promising, but she ultimately broke up with him shortly thereafter.

Of course that all played out in the Bravolebrity spotlight.  Since then, Joao has been keeping his relationship with girlfriend Michelle Dicu relatively private, except for a few Instagram posts.  But on Friday, Joao did share some very exciting news with his followers.

Kate Chastain Below Deck

Andy Cohen announced that Real Housewives of Salt Lake City will join the Real Housewives franchise this past weekend at BravoCon. Both Andy and the Bravo Network hinted that a new Real Housewives show was on the way. However, it’s fair to say that most people did not expect the new show to take place in Salt Lake City. Talk about random! Nevertheless, most people who complained about it will probably tune in anyway. The same thing happens with the current Real Housewives shows that may be falling short.

One show that continually comes through is Below Deck. Its successor Below Deck Mediterranean is an equally compelling show. And now, the Below Deck franchise is expanding with a third show on the network.

Captain Sandy Yawn Below Deck Meditattanean

Last night’s season finale of Below Deck Mediterranean was a tale of too little, too late backhanded compliments. I still think we need a reunion (and I’m super curious about the real reason that’s not happening, but unfortunately I’m not the one in charge over at Bravo) because one of the biggest questions I want answered is why Captain Sandy Yawn turned suddenly on Hannah Ferrier in the last gasps of the season.

Was it just an amalgamation of so many lazy moments that built up for Sandy? Was Sandy tired of feeling like Hannah wasn’t hearing her demands? Was Sandy influenced by Ben Robinson‘s opinion of Hannah?

But, seriously, why is Sandy – on the last day, of the last charter – upset that table is not set at 5am? Meanwhile the deck crew is just twiddling their thumbs. They put the slide up, they take the slide down, you do the jet ski pokey and you shake your whizz all around… Like what guest is going to wake up, and before they’ve had coffee, decide to take a brisk jet ski ride or slip down the slide?
