Perhaps an alternate title for this season of Below Deck Mediterranean could be Everybody Loves Malia. The deckhand has caught the eye of many of her male crew members, including Bobby Giancola, Chef Adam Glick, and Wes Walton.
And Malia White's fellow yachties did a lot more than just admire her from afar in Tuesday night's episode. Malia ended up locking lips with not only Wes but also Adam, and we can only imagine that there is drama on the horizon for the whole Sirocco crew.
When Bravotv.com caught up with Adam at the beginning of this season, he teased that he wouldn't be the only one looking to win Malia's heart. "As soon as we all got rolling [this season], sure enough she’s gorgeous," Adam said. "So every single one of us was into her [except for Max Hagley, who has a girlfriend]... Everyone was vying for Malia."
Indeed, Bobby, Adam, and Wes have all flirted with Malia at one time or another so far this season of Below Deck Med. "We’ve gone past [love] triangles, potentially a hexagon, working its way into trapezoidal tendencies," Adam joked to Bravotv.com.
Adam teased that this competition for Malia's heart will "no doubt" cause some tension among the crew. "I think humans are very much aware of their surroundings in a very tight-knit scenario like the yacht, and a yacht crew we’re all hyper-aware of our surroundings and each other and what’s happening," he explained. "In sort of that high school sense, you see that crush developing and/or you see people looking at each other a certain way, or gestures, or hand motions, or whatever, whatever body language it takes to gesture interest in someone is all it takes on a boat to raise eyebrows and start getting people thinking and get people questioning what’s going on here."
The Below Deck Med chef also said that crew members will "not always be happy with what they're finding out," either. So basically, expect some rough waters ahead for the Sirocco squad.
