Below Deck Mediterranean Star Hannah Ferrier

It was clear to Below Deck Mediterranean viewers that it was time for Hannah Ferrier to move on.  She was chief stew since the series premiered, but seemed less and less enamored with her job.  Hannah often butted heads with her superior Captain Sandy Yawn, who described her as, “checked-out.”  Hannah was asked to leave the boat when valium was discovered in her possession.

Bugsy Drake took over like a breath of fresh air, and Hannah went home.  It could have been a low point for Hannah, but she seemed ready for life back on land.  Since filming for the show, Hannah hit many life milestones.  She and boyfriend Josh welcomed daughter Ava, their first child together, in October.  Hannah also celebrated her birthday on Sunday with her family, and got a very special surprise this year.

Below Deck James Hough

How many terrible groups of charter guests does it take to make not one, but two crew members cry? This week on Below Deck, the answer is just one. You guys! I cannot reiterate enough what monsters these guests are. And it’s only the first charter of the season! We’ve barely left the dock and chaos has completely taken over My Seanna. And I blame it almost entirely on Charley Walters and his band of vile friends. Well, if you can even call them “friends.” But let’s not ahead of ourselves.

Need I remind you, this is also the third time Bravo has let Charley onto this show. Two seasons ago, he and his gaggle of mean girl gays were the ones who forced Josiah Carter into a gold speedo. And reminded him of the gay bullies who terrorized him after he came out. Which, let me tell you, is sadly all too real in the hateful world of gay-on-gay social circles. (They also got chewed out by Captain Lee Rosbach that season for dangerously operating the jet skis without a kill switch, and putting their lives in danger.)

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.

Below Deck Alum Amy Johnson Is Engaged

Below Deck Season 2 stew Amy Johnson is not the most memorable alum.  She was charming, sweet, hard working, and ever cheerful.  Despite this, Chief Stew Kate Chastain still found a way to ostracize her.  In typical Kate style, she used a friendship with her second stew to alienate the third stew.  And Kat Held was happy to play along.

Amy was, in fact, fantastic at her job.  But that doesn’t make for entertaining reality TV, so after Amy left the series to be closer to her boyfriend, she was quickly replaced.  Ironically, she and Kate became friends after filming wrapped.  Amy has been active on social media since her departure, supporting the show and her former chief stew.

Captain Lee Rosbach Shoulder Surgery

As invincible as Captain Lee Rosbach seems on Below Deck, he is still a human being at the end of the day. And, unfortunately, he too has aches and pains.

Recently, the Below Deck fan favorite revealed that he got surgery on his shoulder. Currently, he’s in recovery. Hopefully, he will be all healed up by the time Below Deck returns for Season 7 next month.

Caroline gets many unwelcome surprises

Kate Chastain’s favorite ex stew is making the news for her troubles again. If you remember Caroline Bedol at all from Season 6, she was the one that did the least amount of work and complained the most. To be fair, she did have an injured and swollen attitude foot.

It seems like for most people, being on a show improves their lives but not Caroline. After having a nervous breakdown on national TV with mean girls Kate and Josiah Carter taunting her, she went back home only to be homeless and asking for donations from fans.

Josiah

Josiah Carter might be the perfect man. Trained butler, check. British accent, check. Loves his mama, check. The Below Deck yachtie also made quite an impression on our High Priestess of Snark, Kate Chastain as well. And that’s no easy challenge, right Caroline Bedol? During his season, fans watched as Josiah navigated through horrible drunken guests. We saw him rise above petty crew members. Josiah also confronted bullying issues he had during his youth. And then there was… the Gold Speedo. Shhhh, I think I hear angels singing behind me.

Anygoldendaddy, after he toured Tahiti under silver fox, Captain Lee Rosbach, Josiah found himself watching, Below Deck Mediterranean. Josiah discovered something to like in Captain Sandy Yawn and the rest of the cast. Sounds like my favorite the second stew might want to continue his journey, but with different scenery this time.

Last week, the Season 4 trailer for Below Deck Mediterranean was released. It looks like Bravo is again throwing in a casting curve-ball.  And while it may be unexpected, it’s certainly the logical next step for mixing up the typical gender roles onboard.

First, it was the surprise of a female deck hand.  Then Captain Sandy Yawn took the helm in Season 2 of the Mediterranean spinoff.  Josiah Carter killed it as the very qualified and fabulous Second Stew last season on the original series, Below Deck.  He was the first male to serve with the interior crew.
