Below-Deck Mediterranean viewers don’t know the conclusion of Captain Sandy Yawn and Hannah Ferrier’s discussion about the uncovered valium, but some fans are already making a comparison with a similar scenario of the Below Deck season 1.
Bosun Malia White, who was Hannah Ferrier’s cabin mate, found Ferrier’s prescription valium and a CBD pen in her bunk. She took a picture of the drug and sent it to Yawn. Rumor has it that Ferrier was fired, so some fans conclude Ferrier was fired because of the drugs.
But in the long run fans of Below Deck remembered when Kat Held’s stew also had anti-anxiety medications during season 1. She acted erratically and eventually admitted to having them. She wasn’t fired.
Chief stew Adrienne Gang recently tweeted a comparison. “2 all comparing Malia/Hannah with the Adrienne/Kat issue of S1 1)Malia was clearly using “finding” the drugs as a childish opportunity to get her way 2)Hannah was NOT interacting with guests in an irregular manner 3)Kat admitted that she was taking heavy medication and DRINKING ON CHARTER,” she wrote.
Below Deck Med: Adrienne Disagrees With Malia’s Statement
Malia White gave a statement about the drug discovery on Instagram before the incident. She has since deleted the comments, but the comments concerned maritime law and the actions to be taken in case of drug discovery.
“Last week Malia White issued a statement saying it is normal for the captain to administer drugs to employees to make sure there is no abuse and nobody falls asleep in an emergency,” a fan in the thread asked. “In your experience, is this the standard?
“No,” replied the Adrienne Gang. “I’ve never had a captain hand out my meds or someone else’s. I asked my captains to put my medicine in the boat safely. I have never had them on ration. The point of having Valium at hand is that you can get it when anxiety strikes.
