Below Deck Mediterranean Pete Hunziker

Wow, what an episode! Lat night on Below Deck Mediterranean, we finally got the answer as to why Pete Hunziker has stuck around long past his firing from the show. And the answer is a tried-and-true reality TV staple, yachties: so we, the viewers, could witness his downfall.

That’s right, it looks like Creepy Pete is on his way out. Or at the very least, this is the beginning of the end for the disgraced deckhand, who was unceremoniously booted by Bravo after he posted a vilely racist/sexist/downright disgusting meme on social media. But let’s not get too ahead of ourselves and back up to the top of the hour, shall we?

Below Deck Mediterranean Hannah Ferrier

During last week’s episode of Below Deck Mediterranean, Chef Kiko Lorran was put under a lot of pressure when he had to cook a 72-plate dinner for some demanding charter guests. But, that doesn’t mean this week’s charter is going to be any easier for him. Kiko is faced with another challenge tonight.

Meanwhile, Third Stew Jessica More struggles to fulfill her duties following an injury. Will she be able to keep her spot on the boat? But she’s not the only stewardess in a struggle this week. Even though they kind of/sort of made peace, the tension between Hannah Ferrier and Bugsy Drake is still there. And we all know that Captain Sandy Yawn is going to side with anyone who is not Hannah Bugsy if the two of them get into an argument.

Below Deck Mediterranean Jessica More Rob Westergaard

Jessica More has a lot to “puzzle” over.  The latest episode of Below Deck Mediterranean had her questioning whether to trust deckhand Rob Westergaard with her burgeoinng feelings for him.  Rob claimed to be in an open, casual relationship and free of obligation to explore his feelings for Jessica.  But shortly before wooing Jessica into his bunk for the night, Rob shared a picture of himself with his girl back home.  The post indicate anything but casual feelings.  Of course, Chief Stew Hannah Ferrier saw it and told her stew.  Hannah also confronted Rob about the situation.  His reply was that he had broken things off with his lady on land to pursue things with Jessica.

It’s the tale as old as time. Yachties and Below Deck fans have seen how this will play out.  It’s easy to forget your life on land as you traverse the wide, endless ocean.  Accountability is minimal and it’s just too easy to claim open relationship status.  Even if you are rooting for Rob and Jessica, the odds of things working out long-term just don’t seem to be in their favor.

Below Deck Mediterranean Kiko Lorran-2

Welcome back to another week of Below Deck Mediterranean: Docked Edition. That’s right yachties, we are still stuck on the dock. Which is basically every charter guest, captain and real yachtie’s worst nightmare.

This week, the crew’s third charter remains all tied up with nowhere to go. However, that doesn’t stop the charter season — or the drama — from creating waves aboard The Wellington. From Chef Kiko Lorran being tasked with a nearly insurmountable challenge to Hannah Ferrier and Bugsy Drake finally confronting their lingering tension from charter seasons past, the episode does a decent job of serving up the smoke and mirrors to distract us all from the fact that this boat’s not leaving the harbor.

Below Deck Mediterranean is back with an all-new episode tonight. Chef Kiko Lorran has the challenge of cooking for extra people when the charter guests invite randoms to join them for a six-course meal on the yacht.

Hannah Ferrier and Bugsy Drake’s residual drama resurfaces tonight. Will the ladies just have a mature conversation about moving on and moving forward? Or will things get heated this early in the season?

What’s a crew to do when The Wellington has to stay docked for an entire charter? Looks like we’re about to find out on this week’s episode of Below Deck Mediterranean! In the closing moments of last week, Bugsy Drake brought a (literal) storm along for her return to Below Deck Med, and the torrential downpour isn’t letting up any time soon. Could this be a bad omen for the veteran second stew’s return?

But before we get ahead of ourselves, let’s handle some housekeeping, shall we? Did anyone clock that Pete Hunziker has officially been removed from the show’s opening credits? It’s worth nothing, considering the lead deckhand was brusquely fired from the show after posting a perversely racist image on social media. In the aftermath of his firing, Bravo and 51 Minds vowed to “minimize” the yachtie’s appearances throughout the remainder of the season. This seems like an obvious first step. However, we can still expect to see less of Pete as the charter season goes on. (Well, and Bravo’s editing catches up with his ouster).

Wow, so much has happened in just one week in the Below Deck universe! Last week, Pete Hunziker was gearing up to be the lead deckhand we all love to hate because of his condescending, misogynistic attitude on board The Wellington. This week, Pete’s been terminated from Below Deck Mediterranean altogether because of a vilely racist social media post.

For the remainder of the season, Bravo and 51 Minds, the show’s production company, will be editing around Pete to remove him from as much footage as possible. Of course, there’s wasn’t enough turnaround time to re-edit this week’s episode, so it will be interesting to see when the lead deckhand starts disappearing from the charter season. However, for the time being, we’ll still include Pete in our recaps. That is, with the context that we’ll soon be seeing the last of him.

Below Deck Mediterranean Recap: Let Me Call You Sweetheart

Well, well, well. It’s only the third episode of Below Deck Mediterranean and we already have an interior war on our hands. Last week ended with a standoff between Hannah Ferrier and Lara Flumiani, with the chief stew calling Captain Sandy Yawn in to mediate in the standoff with her subordinate second stew. And this week picks up right where we left off in the heat of the battle.

At first, Captain Sandy cuts Hannah off, telling her to let Lara speak, but the captain eventually sides with Hannah after hearing the second stew’s side of the story. In my eyes, it’s a classic Below Deck story. Basically, Hannah is angry at Lara for having an attitude about every little thing and Lara is angry at Hannah for she’s being spoken to. It seems like every season, on every franchise, this issue boils down to one thing: developing an effective management style. However, as much as Hannah’s lack of leadership would probably grate on me too, Lara certainly takes her attitude problem to another level. And it’s only been one charter!
