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.
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.
The ship pretty much hit the fan on last night’s Below Deck Mediterranean. I think y’all would agree that A YACHT happened. So sorry. The show started where last week’s episode ended. The chief stewardess and the bosun were in hot water with the captain.
Following Hannah Ferrier’s banishment to her cabin, Captain Sandy Yawn shrieks for Conrad Empson so she can lay into him about indirectly overworking Brooke Laughton. Sandy gave Hannah explicit instructions to return to the yacht after one quick Diet Coke. Given they were gone three hours, that must have been a massive Polar Pop of the D.C. (with that amazing pellet ice, obviously).
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.
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.
While Hannah Ferrier was lazing in bed, having
GrubHub show up food delivered by adoring servants and generally ignoring her responsibilities, everything else on Below Deck Mediterranean was smooth as a rubber slide covered in dish detergent!
The guests – the infamous, notorious, dastardly anti-onionists Kenny and Amber were happy, the crew was unified, Conrad Empson was able to set up the slide without a powerpoint presentation from Joao Franco, and even Kasey Cohen managed to activate the coffee machine without a Willy Wonka like explosion. The common denominator here has to be Hannah – either that or the no onions. There’s no way I’m blaming Jamie Jason for anything.
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.
Hannah Ferrier‘s house of cards is tumbling on Below Deck Mediterranean and all it took was Joao Franco making out with her second stew to send it all tumbling down!
The fateful event happened at Hannah’s own birthday party – which is supposed to be all about revering Hannah for the greatness that she is by pushing her up the dock in a shopping cart, legs splayed, waving a cigarette, and that DE-SIGN-NER Yves Saint Laurent top covered in cake and ash. Conrad Empson this is a glimpse at your future!
Poor Kasey Cohen, who was just imagining her own future as Joao’s girlfriend, looks on in horror as he and Brooke Laughton start making out at the beer bottle covered table. Hilariously Kasey and Jamie Jason troll Joao by cleaning up right in front of him and glaring him down as he’s trying to have his ‘moment’ with Brooke.
