Fraser Olender has taken aim at Captain Sandy Yawn and chef Rachel Hargrove as the Below Deck Season 10 drama heats up.
Camille Lamb may be gone from the interior crew, but it’s still not smooth sailing for the service team.
Captain Sandy has had it with the interior team, even publicity declaring Fraser has a lot to learn about being a chief stew.
Ahead of last night’s episode, Fraser shed more light on his relationship with Captain Sandy after recently showing his appreciation for Captain Lee Rosbach.
One Below Deck fan tweeted that it felt like Captain Sandy really “might hate” Fraser, and it caught his attention.
“Not you’re spot on, wait until next episode,” was his response.
That was just the beginning of what Fraser had to say about the captain and chef as the most recent episode played out.
Fraser Olender stands up for himself against Captain Sandy Yawn
As Below Deck was airing, Fraser took to Twitter to live tweet about what was going down on the show. The chief stew didn’t hold back from defending himself or his team.
“Not really sure of this week’s edit to be very honest… We felt great, no stress, no one frazzled, everything under control, all smiles – aside from the bad energy from chef and Cap, we were gold!” he wrote.
Below Deck Sailing Yacht alum Gabriela Barragan chimed on that tweet, referring to the editing as “classic mix & match.”
Gabriela’s reply earned more insight from Fraser, who claimed that aside from a captain who wasn’t a fan of his and food not being ready on time, “there were no issues.” He alluded to there being “insecurities elsewhere.”
The remark had Gabriela agreeing and commenting on it being hard to watch.
The chief further stated in a separate tweet the challenges of taking constructive criticism from someone who doesn’t like you.
“Never easy taking ‘constructive criticism’ from someone who isn’t kind to you – you can’t help but wonder whether it’s genuine guidance or designed to break you,” he shared.
Fraser didn’t indicate if he was talking about Captain Sandy or Rachel, but he did have words about the chef too. It turns out they didn’t have the same kind of relationship on Season 10 as they did on Season 9.
Below Deck’s Fraser Olender takes aim at chef Rachel Hargrove
A comment from Fraser about chef Rachel on a recent TikTok of his got the attention of one Twitter user before last night’s episode hit Bravo airwaves.
The user shared a screengrab of one Below Deck fan declaring that Hayley, Fraser, and Rachel need to come back for another season. It also had Fraser’s reply, which was, “Rachel is evil this season, you don’t want her back – you’ll see,” he wrote.
Although the TikTok remains up, as does the comment about Rachel, Hayley, and Fraser returning, his reply appears to have been deleted.
Fraser also got another little jab at Rachel when Gabriela tweeted that there were snacks in the bar, with the chief stew responding, “Haha same!”
Below Deck viewers will recall Rachel was not happy with Alissa Humber for not having adequate snacks for the guests as the chef requested.
The mid-season trailer teased the drama was just getting started for Below Deck Season 10, and that was no joke. Fraser Olender has shared his opinion on the most recent episode, taking aim at Captain Sandy Yawn and Rachel Hargrove.
There’s plenty of the season still to play out, including the return of Captain Lee Rosbach, which will no doubt change the tension-filled dynamic for sure.
Are you Team Fraser, Team Captain Sandy, or Team Rachel?
Below Deck airs Mondays at 8/7c on Bravo. Seasons 1-9 are streaming on Peacock.
Team Frasier or as Cap Lee calls him Mr oleander xx
Team Frazier 100%
Team Fraser all the way!
Ugh! I caught myself yelling at Capt. Sandy on the TV last night and they were not nice words. Is this lady on a power trip or what! You don’t have to be a jerk to subordinates! She needs to look at how she manages! Hope Capt. Lee returns soon or I may not be able to watch the entire season! Hang in there Fraser!
I’m agreeing with you ?..Myrt
Right there with you!!!!! I had to get up and walk away from the TV, and then wrote an angry post on a fan group, and also sent HER a message on twitter AND instagram. Loathe both Sandy and Rachel. Rachel is so fullof herself she had to create her own FB group Below Deck Community, and DO NOT utter anything that differs from her and her teams thoughts or you will be banished…………….. Fraser is right, both are pure evil!!!!
Sandy is an idiot
Team Rachel with a but——— sadly Sandy is using Rachel to do her dirty work. Just like she used Malia. This is what she does. Frazier needs to get his act together, he is a boss not a friend. Because he loves everybody the work isn’t getting done. If you look at this as piece work, when you do piece work you try to eliminate as many moves as possible so that you can do more work. Frazier needs to get rid of the running back and forth and getting nothing done. Maybe one trip can accomplish 2 or 3 things instead of just one. Less foot work more work—— Frazier.
Well said…I think Capt. Sandy does not like cute gay boys!
She doesn’t like beautiful straight women either!
Fraser is learning the job, and I agree he needs to toughen up. He will get there. He would have been so much better under Capt Lee who would have given him the chance to come into his own w/o humiliating him. What Sandy has done with Rachel is pathetic. For Rachel for fall for it, is even MORE PATHETIC! Both are pure evil!!!!
Team Sandy/Team Rachel
I do like Fraser, but it’s true. He has an excuse for everything. The Captain is the Captain. The boss. Head Honcho. Fraser needs to be a better leader. Sandy didn’t get where she is by being wishy washy. Rachel is a culinary genius.
I agree 1000000%! The people agreeing with Fraser have never, never been in Management!
Captain sandy is a amazon, she has been fair , gave advice , was helpful In suggestions to the crew. This crew was too much of a friendly team to handle, work first , friendship aside after performance! This is not a game ! This is a reality show yes , but this is a job ! Sandy tries to mentor them , guide them . But she is right Fraser needs more trai, and allisa is disrespectful . Not a team leader !!!
OK SANDY OR IS IT LEAH!
EYES WIDE SHUT…………
Mr, Olender 100%
My understanding that not ALL of the requested snacks were out as the client had requested. The stew decided that they didn’t all match up, so she only put a couple of those requested items out there. So no they were not out as requested or expected.
TEAM FRASER ALL THE WAY…. RACHEL AND THE SO CALLED CAPT CRAP SANDY SUCK!
