If there's one thing we can expect from Below Deck Mediterranean, it's that the drama will be plentiful. From insane guests to mid-season hook-ups, the crew has a knack for trouble. Season 4 was perhaps the craziest yet, with Captain Sandy Yawn attempting to keep order. So, if you've found yourself staying at home and self-isolating amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, may we suggest a Below Deck Med binge?
Luckily for you, all four seasons of Below Deck Mediterranean are available to stream right now on BravoTV.com, as well as on the Bravo app, and we've chosen some of the best episodes since the show premiered in 2016. Pour yourself some champagne and get ready to dive into the world of luxury yachts and mega drama, just like a charter guest.
Things take a turn for the worse at a crew dinner in this season 1 episode. When deckhand Danny Zureikat gets in the middle of an argument between Hannah Ferrier and Chef Ben Robinson, insults start flying. Danny tells Hannah, "Someone needs to feed you some makeup 'cause you got an ugly personality, all right?" That doesn't sit well with the chief stew, who physically pushes "the smurf," as Hannah calls him.
Who could forget about Oniongate?! When season 2's chef Adam Glick was explicitly asked by charter guests not to cook food with onions, he couldn't resist throwing some in anyway. As he told a furious Hannah, "You can't make a nice soup without a little onion flavor." The stunt almost got him fired.
There is one golden rule in yachting: Don't hook up with charter guests. But sometimes the temptation can be too great, as it was for Hannah in season 2. When hottie Jason boarded the mega yacht, Hannah's attraction to him was instantaneous. But when second stew Bugsy Drake finds incriminating text messages between Hannah and Jason, their love fest is revealed to the crew — and it does not go over well.
Jezabob, deckhand João Franco's drunk alter ego, went toe to toe with the crew during a number of dinners. João decides to try and reign himself in, but when second stew Brooke Laughton falls asleep and some crew members decide to take pictures of it, he has enough. Hannah fights back, and João responds with a few Jezabob-worthy NSFW insults.
Captain Sandy won't put up with crap from her crew, and Hannah almost paid the price for lingering on the tender too long. Captain Sandy was clear that Hannah shouldn't leave the boat for longer than an hour, so her five-hour-long excursion nearly cost her her job. "We're done," Captain Sandy said. "The rest of this charter, you stay away from me."
Of course we couldn't leave out this fiery episode from season 4. Chef Mila Kolomeitseva has been plagued with controversy. If she's not angering the crew with her homophobic views, then it's because she's unable to perform in the kitchen. Hannah eventually explodes, saying, "I'm serving absolute s--t to guests, so you don't need to come at me about anything at the moment."
