Below Deck Med star Christine “Bugsy” Drake eventually became her own person. Viewers got used to her chief stew skills on Season 5. She’s become known for her love of tablescapes and oversized hair clips. Fans love how she motivates her stews and cares about everything she does.
However, that wasn’t always the case. On Season 2 of Below Deck Mediterranean, Bugsy found herself at odds with former chief stew Hannah Ferrier. The two couldn’t see eye-to-eye on their work ethic. By Season 5, Hannah and Bugsy agreed to have an amicable work relationship.
She also got flak for her friendship with bosun Malia White, who was responsible for Hannah’s firing.
Bugsy Drake pens emotional post
On Wednesday, October 7, Bugsy shared a selfie on Instagram. In the photo, she wore a floppy hat and a dark tank top. She also had a pensive look on her face. That might have to do something with the serious tone of her Instagram post. The Below Deck Med star revealed how “beyond grateful” for everyone in her life, including her followers.
“I am Beyond Grateful to everyone in my life who has stood by me, pushed me to follow my dreams and supported me along the way!” Bugsy wrote. “I am in constant awe of the unwavering love, kindness and support I have received from ALL OF YOU on the daily throughout my journey…”
Of course, that wasn’t always the case. Some fans assumed that Bugsy would end up as the real villain of Below Deck Mediterranean. Others thought it was Peter Hunziker after his firing. But the real villain was Captain Sandy Yawn, according to the viewers.
“Thank you a million times over!” she continued. “I hope to continue to share, motivate and above all inspire you to go after and achieve your Wildest dreams and passions.”
