The cast of Below Deck Mediterranean is back for season five with some familiar female faces, and a bunch of new faces to work their way through Spain.
Below Deck Mediterranean is being led by Sandy Yawn again for season five, with Hannah Ferrier and Malia White heading the interior and deck teams. We are very familiar with Hannah’s yacht antics but this will be Malia’s first time leading a team on the show. The two had their drama before, but Hannah and Sandy are definitely going to find themselves arguing more than usual this season.
Speaking of the yacht, this season finds the team onboard the 184-foot mega yacht called “The Wellington.” This is apparently the biggest boat in Bravo’s Below Deck history. Just because the boat is big though, doesn’t mean that there will be room to keep the drama at bay.
The new chef, Hindrigo “Kiko” Lorran, is originally from Brazil and has his own book, The Surfer’s Cookbook, according to his Bravo bio – but I can’t locate the book anywhere. His bio also indicated he has a love for ceviche and sushi which should benefit him on board the yacht. Kiko seems to have some issues with a fish dish on the first charter, which isn’t a great way to start the season.
Lara Flumiani is an Italian stew working alongside Jessica More on the interior team. Jessica hails from California and Florida and according to her Bravo bio, she hopes to “find romance on board this season.” That never ends well so it should be entertaining to watch.
Pete Hunziker is coming in hot from Miami, Florida with a nickname ready to go. “‘Party Pete’” turns to dance to burn off the stress of back-to-back charters.” There always has to be one, right? Alex Radcliffe is from Massachusetts and claims to be a big flirt, so perhaps he and Jessica will hit it off. Or perhaps not. Robert Westergaard is from South Africa and from first glance, looks to be ready to learn the ropes aboard “The Wellington” this season.
Hannah has never been known for her good attitude so it should be interesting to see how she gets along with all-female management. Spoiler alert: not well.
Below Deck Mediterranean is on Bravo Monday nights at 9 PM ET!
