The Below Deck Mediterranean season eight trailer has arrived, promising plenty of drama for both crew and guests.
Castmates Kyle Viljoen, Natalya Scudder, and Captain Sandy Yawn have returned, while two co-stars from Below Deck Down Under have crossed over.
In the trailer, shared by Bravo on Instagram, Captain Sandy seemingly fires one of the crew, though their identity is a mystery.
Chief Stew Tumi Mhlongo, who was a fan favorite on Down Under, revealed she’s never had the position before. The star seemingly feuds with Natalya, who allegedly was “attacking” Tumi since “day one.”
In a different conversation, Natalya is on the phone with her boyfriend, though she appears to be kissing deckhand Luka Branton, who also starred on Below Deck Down Under. Natalya answers ‘yes’ when Kyle asks, “Are you two seriously attracted to each other?”
Luka, however, appears to be in a love triangle – or square – and is seen kissing three different women, though he claims that his “goal” is not to get “too distracted by these ladies.”
One of the women he kisses is Jessika Assai, a new stew who seemingly indicates that she and the deckhand are “f**k buddies.”
In another scene, Captain Sandy addresses one of the castmates, saying she hears them “talk out of both sides of [their] mouth daily.” She later declares there is a “common denominator” for “every situation that’s happened” on the boat.
“I will put you on the dock so fast if you don’t change,” Sandy expresses. “Your screaming, your lack of respect, I won’t tolerate it … I don’t want a person like you on board.”
She not only threatens to fire an employee, but she also gives an ultimatum to a guest who was apparently intoxicated and “out of control.”
Sandy also seems to have sustained a wrist injury, and she possibly leaves the boat at some point in the season.
Kyle and Natalya get into several heated arguments, as Kyle says, “You will never control me … Trust me, I’ll continue with this until the end of the f**king charter. Don’t test me, b**ch.” He also seemingly calls her a “fake-a** b**ch” who has been “talking s**t.”
Natalya then calls him a “horrible human.”
“Fitting the shoe box, honey,” he replies. “So are you.”
Below Deck Mediterranean season eight premieres Monday, September 25, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
