Captain Sandy Yawn Below Deck Mediterranean

After surviving Jackie Siegel, self-professed Queen of Versailles, the Below Deck Mediterranean crew should be ready to take on anything — or not. With MLB legend Johnny Damon on board cracks begin to show in the crew’s professionalism and performance. Hopefully Captain Sandy Yawn can fix things before they spin wildly out of control…

Team Damon is a rowdy group that requires all hands on deck, but this overworked, fatigued and disoriented crew has barely recovered from staff changes and is also dealing with personal demons that continue to bog them down like an anchor trapped in seaweed. 

June Foster - Below Deck Mediterranean

I can’t figure out who is crazier on Below Deck Mediterranean: new third stew June Foster or billionaire charter guest Jackie Siegel. These two are two urchins in a reef who live in their own worlds – it’s probably better that they stay there instead of permeating ours.

The trek to picnic at Eze continues. Up a mountain, down a mountain, up a mountain, down a mountain, up an inflatable slide, down an inflatable… Oh wait, haha! That’s only for half the crew! The rest of the crew is on a particularly odious Amazing Race challenge featuring deck chairs and how many can be carried at once without a leg being broken (the chair’s or the human’s – doesn’t matter!).

Joao Franco and the rest of the team at Eze finally get everything to the top (with Jackie is whining for food like a petulant child) that there’s no cutlery and no one is answering the radio because Captain Sandy Yawn has them all frolicking in the water under the auspice of crew training. Or producers just wanted another opportunity to showcase Anastasia Surmava in a thong bikini.

Hannah Ferrier Joao Franco Below Deck Mediterranean

It was too good to be true when Hannah Ferrier actually liked her Third Stew for once. However, Anastasia Surmava didn’t last too long as the Third Stew since she got promoted to chef. Now, Hannah is working with June Foster and surprise, surprise Hannah has not been the most welcoming.

She seems to have high standards for June, but very little instruction on how to meet those expectations. Unfortunately for June, she continues to struggle during tonight’s Below Deck Mediterranean episode.

Hannah Ferrier & Jackie Siegel on Below Deck Mediterranean

Last night’s Below Deck Mediterranean was a delight, let me tell you! When the Queen of Versailles comes on board everything must be top notch. Let the commoners eat leftover cake. Literally.

Sirocco is a ship of change and fools. The number one fool being Joao Franco who could only keep his dark side hidden for so long. All those tears he cried to Captain Sandy Yawn about being a changed man were swiftly undone by a few errant shots of vodka. Jezabob returns and comes out swinging! YUCK.

First Joao starts with Anastasia Surmava. In Joao’s esteemed opinion beacuse Anastasia is not a 7-star chef she had no business accepting the promotion. OK, exactly what is a 7-star chef and what type of professional of this caliber would be working on a reality TV charter yacht for people like Jackie Siegel? [Crickets] 

June Foster joins Below Deck Mediterranean

Lots of exciting happenings tonight on Below Deck Mediterranean – from the infamous charter guests to a new stewardess joining the crew of the Sirocco!

With Anastasia Surmava promoted to chef Captain Sandy Yawn has scoured the world (or Monster.com) for a new third stew who’s available to start mid-season. Sandy hires June Foster sight unseen – and lets hope the globe-trotter originally from Arizona doesn’t make too many waves because Hannah Ferrier is not happy to have changes to her interior crew!

Ashley Brinton Below Deck

When Ashley Brinton and her family arrived in the French Riviera to film her music video, the Below Deck Mediterranean crew and viewers thought they knew how the story would play out. There have been plenty of “spoiled” rich people on these yachts. The expected lack of awareness coupled with rudeness makes for good TV.

However, that was not the case with Ashley. Sure, she has a leg up on most teens looking to break into the music industry, but she had such a great attitude about everything, and, yes, believe it or not, pristine manners as well. She was so vocal about how grateful she was for every single thing the crew did. They didn’t even mind being in the background of the video or helping with production. Confused deckhand Colin Macy-O’Toole even thought he was a “fluffer” on set, which was so not the accurate description. In an exclusive interview with Reality Tea, Ashley dished on her time with the Below Deck Mediterranean crew, including the behind-the-scenes drama in the kitchen.

Joao Franco Below Deck Mediterranean

On last night’s Below Deck Mediterranean the topsy-turvy crew continued to churn out amazing results, but the cracks started showing in the most delightful way when an overworked Joao Franco let his facade slip.

Even Captain Sandy Yawn is starting to crack. And in her exhaustion Sandy starts making ridiculous demands like moving the boat 15 inches to provide better scenery for the background of guest Ashley Brinton‘s music video.

Curled up on the deck of the Sirocco, like the guts of a sea monster, is the anchor chain. Colin Macy-O’Toole was distracted trying to do the work of 2 deckhands, after being woken up in the middle of the night, and somehow the anchor got twisted and knotted up. Just like a third stew became a chef, and the lead deckhand became basically a lunch lady doling out fruit cups and crispy chicken sandwiches to the crew.

Jack Stirrup - Below Deck Mediterranean

The crew continues to be strained on tonight’s Below Deck Mediterranean and that means tempers are flaring as everyone juggles extra duties to make up their shortage of chef!

Luckily Anastasia Surmava, with the help of Travis Michalzik, is killing it in the kitchen! The guests are thrilled, and Captain Sandy Yawn is ready to relax. Now if only the pesky anchors and the deck crews controlling them would cooperate!
