Chef Mathew Shea has sounded off on Below Deck Mediterranean by blasting editing and Captain Sandy Yawn while praising production and the Season 6 crew.

The reunion show earned mixed reactions from Below Deck Med fans. Other than drunk Courtney Veale, who certainly entertained viewers, the virtual chat was kind of boring. Malia White opened up about her romance with Jake Baker too but other than that not much happened.

One shocking revelation did come from the event. Chef Mathew expressed his true feelings about Captain Sandy Yawn, whom he calls the worst captain he has ever worked with within his 15 years of yachting.

It turns out the chef had a lot more to say and not just about the captain. Mathew has sounded off on his experience, sharing some jaw-dropping information about his time on Below Deck Mediterranean.

There’s no question that Mathew brought a slew of drama upon himself during Season 6. After watching the reunion show though, the chef got real about how he truly felt about the show.

“After the reunion episode, I have to say that I was once again disappointed in the decisions made in the editing room. To watch the network use my soundbite over and over for clickbait and commercial teasers and to cut out all of the reasons I cited for feeling the way I do about the Captain seemed especially unfair,” chef Mathew tweeted.

That wasn’t all he had to say about the captain either. Mathew explained he stood by his feelings and shed some light on why he is not a Captain Sandy fan.

Another group of people that got praise from chef Mathew was the Lady Michelle crew. The Below Deck Med Season 6 cast has a bond never seen before in the history of the Below Deck franchise. They are so close, the Lady Michelle crew spent time together in Split when filming ended.
