All eyes this season are on Below Deck Mediterranean, but the episode in which Captain Sandy fired Hannah Ferrier broke records.
There is so much drama going on with the show. It seems the fans aren’t happy with the way the firing has gone.
Captain Sandy and the boatswain, Malia White, suffered the most. Many viewers believe they conspired to have the main stew fired. Hannah Ferrier, who suffers from anxiety and panic attacks, was dismissed after Malia White found a prescription for Valium in her bag and took a picture.
She then sent the photo to Captain Sandy, who claimed that Hannah Ferrier endangered the crew by not revealing that she had a prescription on board.
Malia White got a ton of kickback for what she did. She even went so far as to post a ton of rules and regulations about yachting to justify her action. However, it seems that the drama has paid off, as the show now has record numbers.
