Below Deck Mediterranean Hannah Ferrier Malia White

Well Below Deck Mediterranean is back, but literally nothing changed. Hannah Ferrier is still obnoxious and a terrible chief stew, Captain Sandy Yawn is overbearing and phony. OK – changed my mind. One thing has changed: Malia White is here again but this time she is a bosun who has no time for the boys. Malia actually didn’t annoy me this episode. So that has also changed.

The crew is setting sail in Mallorca Spain aboard The Wellington, the biggest yacht they’ve ever had, which means we have a 4-person deck crew, two of whom are rejects from Jersey Shore.

Captain Sandy is on my last nerve before Hannah has even stepped onto the boat. She is practically choking on her own words when she claims to truly believe Hannah is a hard worker who wants to do a good job, which is why she hired her back. See, no, this is BS that absolutely no one believes. I hate when reality television so infringes upon actual credible reality – why can’t Sandy just say Bravo made me hire Hannah.

Captain Sandy Yawn Below Deck Mediterranean
Below Deck Mediterranean returns for its fifth season tonight. Captain Sandy Yawn is back to helm the Wellington mega-yacht. Hannah Ferrier will resume her role as Chief Stew. Season 2 deckhand Malia White returns with a promotion to bosun.

Below Deck Mediterranean New Season Trailer Released

Below Deck Mediterranean is back for Season 5 this summer and fans can be sure of three things.  One is that Captain Sandy Yawn will be at the helm, second is that Chief Stew Hannah Ferrier will be grossly mismanaging the interior, and finally, that the two will not get along.

Of course the views will also be amazing, and this year it looks like the location has moved to the Spanish coast.  Another first is the size of the yacht.  Captain Sandy will be managing the largest vessel in Below Deck history this season.  “The Wellington” is an 184 foot mega yacht and that’s quite a bit of space to manage.  The big surprise is which former crew member is returning as Bosun.
