Below Deck Mediterranean’s head stew, Katie Flood, admitted that keeping Lexi Wilson was Captain Sandy’s decision, not hers. Katie Flood’s first season on the hit yachting show has been challenging. She was stressed because of Lexi Wilson’s behavior, especially on that fateful crew night.
The New Zealander went to Captain Sandy Yawn a couple of times with her concerns, only to be rebuffed by the captain and told to steer the troubled stew.
After seeing the struggling interior, Captain Sandy Yawn offered to bring a fourth stew. Katie Flood reluctantly agreed, and Delaney Evans joined the crew, adding a new level of stress for the stew leader. Lexi Wilson has continually talked about her experience on Below Deck Med. Now, Katie Flood is shedding light on the difficult situation by revealing a couple of truth bombs.
In a recent Instagram Q&A session, Katie Flood answered the most burning questions from fans, including why Lexi hasn’t been fired. One user called Lexi’s behaviour “totally unacceptable”. The response coincided with what Katie told Showbiz CheatSheet regarding the fact that she had no right to fire anyone because it belonged to Captain Sandy.
Katie also blurted out that if this had been her second season, she would have pushed harder for Lexi’s sacking. This sentiment echoes what Daisy Kelliher and Josiah Carter also said about the situation.

Another question asked during the Q&A was whether Katie thought Captain Sandy Yawn should have been more supportive of her regarding Lexi. No, Katie Flood didn’t criticize Captain Sandy, but she didn’t seem to agree with his management style.
There are several episodes in season six. Viewers will have to keep watching to see what kind of relationship Captain Sandy and Katie end up having.
In addition, the Below Deck Med reunion show will undoubtedly touch on Katie Flood’s handling of the Lexi Wilson situation and how Captain Sandy got the last word. Lexi won’t be there to have her say, though. She’s been through it all.
