Hannah Ferrier from Below Deck Mediterranean can have a bone to pick with Captain Sandy Yawn over more than her own departure. The former chef stew probably wants to discuss how friend Hindrigo “Kiko” Lorran left the boat.
Hindrigo “Kiko” Lorran and Captain Sandy agreed that he would leave the boat after his Vegas-themed meal crashed. Hannah Ferrier helped Chef Kiko make the menu for the meal and was worried when dinner turned into a fried food feast. Hannah Ferrier wished she had followed Lorran off the boat at that time.
“I know at this stage of the season my head wasn’t in it and I should have stopped, because it was poisonous at best,” she tweeted during the episode. “We’re taught yachting to NEVER leave a boat in the middle of the season. Lessons learned. I wouldn’t stay in an environment that pushes me like that again”.
Below Deck Med: Hannah Wonders Why Hindrigo ‘Kiko’ Lorran Had To Go When Other Chefs Stayed
“I’m just disappointed with how his exit went,” Hannah Ferrier said to Daryn Carp on People TV. “I’ve worked with Sandy for so many years and didn’t accept the kind of behavior she accepted, but gave them a second chance. I didn’t think he deserved to be fired for what he did. She continued. “Especially when he was doing so great at that 72-plate dinner.”
Hindrigo ‘Kiko’ Lorran left the boat in tears, beating Hannah Ferrier’s (and most viewers’) hearts out. He quickly became a favorite of the fans and a good friend of Ferrier’s. “This episode is heartbreaking for me to watch. I understand that work is work, but we’re still people at the end of the day and sometimes you can’t keep it apart,” she tweeted on his last episode. “I am forever grateful to have met Kiko and to be able to call him my friend.
Hannah Ferrier wants to know why Hindrigo ‘Kiko’ Lorran was fired when former chefs like Adam Glick were allowed to leave with adding onions to a guest’s meal. Glick was bored with the request of a charter guest during season 2, insisting food wouldn’t taste good without onions.
Glick initially lied that he was adding onions to the food, even though the guest was constantly sending plates back to the kitchen. He finally found out that he deliberately added the onions out of resentment. Glick not only stayed on the boat, but also returned for season 3. He was also the crossover chef for Under Deck Sailing Yacht.
