Stews and News: Below Deck Med in the Media

Recommended Posts


On WWHL last night, both Colin and Sandy said that Travis was the worst  crew member.  I was surprised since, while it seems like he is bad, Jack seems much much worse.

On the preview, what's the stuff with Hannah and Jaio (SP?)? Looks intimate. Hmmm????

Last season I always got the sense that maybe Joao was attracted to Hannah and that was why he was such a jerk to her, because he she didn't reciprocate or he didn't know how to approach it or whatever. And then he just defaulted to flirting wtih Brooke and, uh, the other stew, until he settled on whomever was the most willing and eager.  So it doesn't totally surprise me that maybe he's going to try and make his move this season, especially since he's trying to redeem himself AND they are peers on the hierarchy now.

They actually aren't peers. They're peers on the fake tv hierarchy. The first mate is the actual department head. The first mate has the bosun, all of the deck crew, and the engineers in their department. The chef is a department of one except on a super luxury yacht. The chief steward has all of the interior crew, which usually just includes the other stews, except on a super luxury yacht where it can include yoga instructors, personal trainers, make up artists, hair stylists, nail technicians, masseuses, pursers, and nannies.

Aesha came from Phoenix 2, which takes a crew of 28.

FYI on Sunday Bravo will be doing a “Best” Chefs moments marathon with episodes from both BD and BD Med, best in quotes because they clearly aren’t they lit best moments but most dramatic.

Beautiful but very overpriced, especially the marina area.  Lot of big yachts there.

A mile or two away in Santa Margherita Ligure, better prices.

Perhaps they are working, who knows Jack deleted his IG.

That is disappointing to hear. I don't get Shep.

No reason given. Maybe their schedules couldn’t be worked out. A lot of them are traveling.

Oh, that's too bad. I assumed it was in their contract to appear on a reunion show. Guess I shouldn't make assumptions.

Probably somebody's guest.  Or maybe she's private cheffing?

That’s interesting that the price they quoted includes a 15k tip... so can these guests opt to leave some of the amount out or is this indicating producer shenanigans and each group leaves 15k even if they act like it’s less? Hmmm....

If they are filming now than the only possible returning members of the crew are Hannah and Sandy because Joao, Ben, Anastasia are all in NY and Aesha is in Bali.

Anastasia and Aesha are on WWHL tonight. Bravo flew them in from Sri Lanka and Bali respectively.

That's sad news. Bravo could have just donated that expense to a worthy charity.

Oh god, this rumored spin off is going to be Capt Joao, isn’t it?  I don’t know if I can take that.

I don’t think so because the spin-off is a sailing yacht not a motor yacht and he doesn’t have that experience which is a lot different.

I am disgusted with captain Sandy. Last season she was hard on Hannah for doing the same thing that Joao was doing with Brooke.  This season the same thing with that couple. Cap sandy picked on Hzmnah for about not being passionate enough. She is like so many nuns I had in school who always favored the boys. Jack was so lazy for most of the season, but Hannah gets dressed down.

 Why wasn't the kitchen stove fixed so that it worked properly. Anastasia was blamed for things that really weren't her fault.  Ben had the same problems with the stove. Fix the dam stove. 

 Why didn't Hannah hook up with Joao this season?  It looked like they were going to connect. It looked like they were going to connect.

Eddie is the tugboat captain. Colin is the Fire Island ferry captain.

Travis is the only one with real sailing experience. Brooke was a stew on Eos, but Eos is a hybrid sailing yacht.

Even though they're getting along now, Joao is still a gross asshole. Aesha said on WWHL that Joao actually made tons of disparaging comments about her every day. I don't think Hannah has forgotten any of that.

Oh, my mistake. Thanks for the correction. 

I’d especially like to watch him as the Fire Island ferry captain. He probably makes witty comments about the travelers and New York-isms.

I don’t find Colin very witty. A Fire Island Bravo show would be fabulous but it shouldn’t star a straight ferry boat captain.

I loved Aesha on WWHL not knowing anything about other Bravo shows.

I'm surprised there isn't a Fire Island Bravo show already.  Colin could have a cameo every week dropping people off and picking them up!

There actually was one on Logo a few years ago produced by Andy’s bffs Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos but it didn’t last.

 Yes I was surprised Aesha said that. They didn't show that on the show. They should have, so we would have known exactly what Joao was about.  They cleaned him up this year for the show, by only showing positive things.  He sounds like a real d***.

in the last episode they did show her being very upset about Joau's dissing of her criticism of Sandy. I think Sandy acted like a princess by walking out after that-- she should have just laughed it off, regardless of how she felt. And then Joau basically sucked up to Sandy by saying how inappropriate what Aesha said was. I don't think what Aesha said was so bad (though I probably wouldn't have done it). It could/should have been taken in a joshing tone.

 I really liked Aesha and Anastasia.  And they were nice  and really had Hannah's back.  They both had really good positive attitudes and were funny. Captain Sandy sucks. It's funny, I was reading comments in here yesterday, and people substituted yawn for captain Sandy.  I thought it was a comment about her personality, only to find out it's her last name. Lol  She really is a yawn and a snooze fest and a sh**t disturber.  She's a gossip monger.

In her "worst thing that happened" comment she said "the interior crew not getting the thanks that they deserved" or something along those lines (pointed directly at Sandy)

That’s the price Heather McDonald mentioned on her podcast.  Is that really “outrageous?”  A good vacation is at least that.  And that price includes quite a bit.

A little over $5,000 per person, including hotel the night before, 3 nights on the ship and the night after, and including tip!  If you include airfare it's about $6,500.

But then they hugged and kissed as she exited.

And probably after Aesha left, if she saw any of the other crew again, she was badmouthing Sandy behind her back.

Aesha was a little gleeful about how much in tips she made in the season, said something about how she could better afford to visit London now.

But she probably burned her bridges as far as BDM.  Maybe she could get on BD?  Do they cross over the crew?

Maybe Bravo likes her antics, being crude and willing to have herself filmed in various states of undress.

That's not as much as one would have thought but it's kind of high for 4 nights.

That $5000 for the cruise could cover a week or two around the Mediterranean coast, see more.

But if you want to be on a yacht and TV show, I guess no other option.

OTOH, you're paying to be on a show which makes a lot more money so is it that they're subsidizing these charters, that is paying the yacht owner enough to make it relatively affordable for more people?

But I doubt Bravo is taking any and all comers who pony up $5000.  I'm sure they screen whom they want and who's willing to go along with producer demands like making crew members put on skimpy outfits for some theme party or something.
