Crazy costumes. Wild nights out. And some major inter-departmental drama.
It’s safe to say Captain Sandy Yawn will have her hands full on Below Deck Mediterranean Season 7.
“This is my first time ever in Malta. This season for me, it’s a new place [and] a new boat with new department heads,” Yawn says in an extended trailer that premiered on Tuesday.
On Season 7, Raygan Tyler will take over for Malia White, while this newcomer will be be joined by season 6 alum Mzi “Zee” Dempers, Storm Smith and Jason Gaskell.
According to the official Bravo synopsis, meanwhile, the captain’s attempts to bring in new department heads may prove to be the wrong choice when “surprising friction in the galley intensifies between the Chief Stew and Chef, who came onto the boat as colleagues and friends.
“The deck team will be facing “an uphill battle” when a crew member “is unable to adapt to the high demands” which forces others to pick up the slack.
Season 7 of Below Deck Mediterranean returns to Bravo with a gigantic, supersizedd premiere on Monday, July 11, at 8/7c.
New episodes will drop one week early on Peacock beginning Monday, July 4.
