Below Deck Mediterranean Bugsy Drake Captain Sandy Yawn Malia White

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.

Bravo Fires Pete Hunziker From Below Deck Med After Racist Post

Another week, another Bravo star bites the dust for being a complete racist.

On Wednesday (June 17), Bravo announced that Below Deck Mediterranean star Pete Hunziker had been fired from the show and the network for an abhorrently racist post on social media.

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!

Below Deck Mediterranean Lara Flumani

There’s a new episode of Below Deck Mediterranean tonight. The tensions between Hannah Ferrier and Lara Flumiani continues. And while this is apparently Hannah’s last season of Below Deck Mediterranean, this might be the first one where the whole fandom is actually behind her. She has Lara to thank for that. Lara is extremely disrespectful as far as stews go. And she’s not providing much entertainment.

On tonight’s episode, Lara just disappears, somehow, even though they’re all living and working in close quarters on a boat. Just fire her already, Captain Sandy Yawn. Lara’s drama isn’t even enjoyable to watch. She is just so frustrating.

Wow. Lara Flumani has set a new record for the worst stews in the history of Below Deck Mediterranean. And that is a show that has no shortage of emotionally challenging stewardesses! It’s almost like the editors wanted to give Hannah Ferrier a redemption send-off so they hired a person who would definitely make Hannah look good, no matter what.

Lara and Hannah just can’t seem to find any common ground. I blame Lara who views the entire world as being made of extra sharp knives she has to walk over. I refuse to believe she was some sort of super stew, as she claimed on her CV.

Lara has decided that Hannah is not her boss because she doesn’t like to be bossed, whereas Hannah has decided that Lara definitely needs to be bossed. And sassed. Honey. While the guests are playing an after-dinner drinking game, Lara and Hannah are arguing while clearing the table. This all came about because Lara feels condescended to by Hannah requesting she do 3rd stew responsibilities because she has a bad attitude. So hat does Lara do but fight bad attitude with a bad attitude.

Below Deck Mediterranean Star Hannah Ferrier Is Pregnant With Her First Child

Congratulations to Below Deck Mediterranean Chief Stew Hannah Ferrier!! During the season 5 premiere episode, she revealed that she was dating someone and for the first time, she was with a guy who she could envision herself marrying and having children with.

Well, clearly, her intuition was on point. Tonight, Hannah announced that she is pregnant with her first child. No wonder she’s done with Below Deck Mediterranean. It’s still unclear if she quit or got fired, but it would make sense if she decided to step away after finding out that she is pregnant. Who would want to be a pregnant chief stew filming a reality TV show? The job itself seems exhausting enough. Throw in a pregnancy and that would just be a lot to deal with, or so it seems.

Below Deck Mediterranean is back tonight with another new episode. Last week we got to “meet” all of the new crew members in addition to getting reacquainted with Captain Sandy Yawn, Hannah Ferrier, and Malia White.

Right from the jump, Chief Stew Hannah had tension with Second Stew Lara Flumiani. And those issues continue on tonight’s Below Deck Mediterranean episode.
