In the Season 3 premiere of Below Deck Mediterranean, you might have been a little bit surprised to see Hannah Ferrier and Adam Glick back as part of the crew, just considering their missteps with Captain Sandy Yawn last season. But then again, if there's one thing that we've learned about Captain Sandy, it's that she's fair.
The Below Deck Med boss explained why she decided to give Hannah and Adam a second chance when The Daily Dish caught up with her prior to the Season 3 premiere, and her response was so Captain Sandy. "Everyone deserves a second chance, and I'm all about believing in people. And someone gave me a chance," she said. "And I really believe that there is a soul inside of their human bodies that really wants to do well."
With Adam specifically, Captain Sandy attributed much of his behavior last season to his tumultuous relationship with Malia White. "I think it really messed with him, and this season I expect to see a different Adam," she said.
In addition to Hannah and Adam, Captain Sandy also had high hopes for the rest of this season's crew with only a positive first impression of the yachties, using words like "young," "excited," "full of energy," and "beautiful" to describe them.
Captain Sandy also went into this season with some new knowledge about herself after watching last season of Below Deck Med. "Man, I'm really calm. I had no idea how calm I am. I'm really chilled, and I had no idea. I had no idea. Like I don't spike," she shared of watching herself in Season 2. "I'm a Pisces; we're calm people. What I find is a lot of people take my kindness as a weakness, and it's not. I mean, I didn't get to where I am by being pushed over."
But if you've seen the trailer for this season of Below Deck Med (clip above), you know that Captain Sandy won't always be her usual calm, cool, and collected self during this voyage. "For me to lose my temper takes a lot. When someone tries to manipulate me or is successful at manipulating me, not only am I angry at myself, but [also] I'm furious with them, especially when I give them a chance, when I give them a little bit of rope, they hang themselves," Captain Sandy teased what pushes her over the edge this season. "At the end of the day we are in the superyacht world. We are serving the 0.1 percent, we have to act as if [we're that], even if we're not that. Even if you don't have that skillset, you have to act like you do. And yes, I lose my temper, rightfully so."
