Below Deck Mediterranean: Being Sandy Yawn’s favorite must be nice

Below Deck Mediterranean has a seriously unbalanced hierarchy onboard The Wellington, with Queen Sandy Yawn and Princess Malia White at the top.

Sandy Yawn continues to be a bad leader on Below Deck Mediterranean, this time clearly showing how she treats favorites of hers verse those she didn’t care for.  When Hindrigo “Kiko” Lorran was in the galley doing everything he could to please her, Sandy was up soliciting criticisms from the guests.  She would leave Kiko to figure it out on his own and then yell at him after the fact.

Tom Checketts, on the other hand, has the help of every staff member on the boat if needed.  Malia White is basically his assistant, never leaving his side except to deliver food to the guests.  Sandy was helping carry sauce, too.  No questions about the quality of food though, she just let Tom do his thing.  The double standards here are wild!

Give me clean towels, or give me death!

Sandy was freaking out that the washing machine and dryers weren’t running 24/7, even though they are down a stew because she fired Hannah Ferrier.  Isn’t working 24/7 against maritime law?  Where are the washing machine’s rights?

An HR nightmare if HR actually cared

Meanwhile, Malia was upset that the boys didn’t put the slide away in the manner she requested, so she called her team “f******.”  Sandy took no issue with this, though!  Malia can say and do whatever she wants because she is the golden child.  It was completely unacceptable when the deck crew called Malia a “sweetheart” but calling them “f******” doesn’t even get acknowledged.  In fact, Sandy said Robert Westergaard was being insubordinate.  Hilarious.

Malia says a lot of the management is “HR” and it’s “been a challenge.”  That might be the dumbest thing anyone said all night.  Obviously managing a group of people is a challenge?  Isn’t that the point?

Back in the galley

Tom says that being a good chef is an integral part of his identity.  If that’s the case, he should learn to cook.  He must be very lost, you can’t just poach everything.

It really does seem that Sandy has Malia’s back no matter how she is doing her job.  On the other hand, she never had Hannah’s back no matter how hard she worked.

Whatever happened this season is truly a poor reflection of Sandy and her management skills.  Imagine if Hannah had 5% of the support Malia has?  What a difference that would have made.
