Below Deck Med star Malia White explained how she’s handling the crew. The bosun faced many challenges with her deck crew. For one, she didn’t appreciate it when lead deckhand Peter Hunziker called her “sweetie.” Malia then shared her frustrations with Captain Sandy Yawn, who then called an emergency meeting.
Last Monday night’s episode of Below Deck Mediterranean had fans uncomfortable. Peter got the title, “Creepy Peter” for his inappropriate behavior with the female crew members. He especially made second stew Christina “Bugsy” Drake uncomfortable with his comments and constant staring. Now, Malia is revealing how she handles the crew full of men.
Malia White explains how she plans to handle the crew
Below Deck Med star Malia White spoke with Daryn Carp of Reality Check. The first question Daryn asked Malia is how she plans to handle her all-male crew. Malia admits that she will shut them down if they disrespect her. But they will get the boot if they do it again or do something else entirely that’s inappropriate.
“You know, for me, it depends on what it is, so with Pete like calling me ‘Sweetie,’ that’s something that I can, you know, just keep reminding them, ‘Hey, knock it off,'” Malia responded. “And eventually three strikes maybe. If it’s something more serious like, you know, some of the chatter that was going on that was inappropriate that’s definitely something that I won’t let fly, and it’ll be off quite easily.”
The Bravo star also asked how quickly she’ll go to Captain Sandy the next time around. Most of the time, Malia feels confident enough in her position to handle it herself. But there might be moments when even Malia can’t handle the boys.
“Yeah, I try to handle it myself,” she explained. “If I ever went to Captain Sandy it was more like, you know, just someone to talk to and kind of like bounce things off of because I think I can handle them on my own. And the only time I would go to the captain specifically to do with, you know, crew safety or something maybe more serious.”
Malia also admits it was “nerve-wracking” to have Bugsy back. But she was happy to have her friend there with her. As TV Shows Ace previously reported, there was mixed reaction over Bugsy’s return.
Below Deck Med star talks about her long-distance relationship
Malia White also talked about her off-boat boyfriend who works on another yacht. The Below Deck Med star said that they’ve been dating for two years. She also confirmed that he’s currently working on another yacht in Croatia, even amid the coronavirus pandemic. Malia says they have a “little bit of a long-distance” relationship.
West Walton and Malia White are still friends. She told Daryn that they still talk a lot. She previously confirmed that news in an interview with The Daily Dish. Wes noticed that Malia is back on Below Deck Mediterranean and he wished her the best of luck with her new position. She made history as the first female bosun in Below Deck history.
Below Deck Med airs Monday nights at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
