‘Below Deck Med’ Recap: Did Chef Tom Cheat on Malia?

0

“Did you call for a reason or are you just calling to talk?” is never a great line to hear on the phone. It’s only slightly more polite than “Can you just get to the point?” But it’s a valid question that Malia White asks on the latest episode of Below Deck Mediterranean when she gets a call from her ex-boyfriend, Tom Checketts.

Below Deck Med fans will remember Chef Tom from Season 5 of the Bravo series when he stepped in to take over for Chef Kiko on the yacht. It’s what also spiraled into the rooming drama when Malia wanted to bunk with him but former chief stew Hannah Ferrier wasn’t quite on board with the idea and…you know what happened next. A whole lot of maritime law.

Malia and Tom had since broken up when she returned to the show for Season 6 in Croatia, and as she explained in her interview, “It’s definitely weird to talk to him. It’s very raw at this point.”

After a short series of clips of them kissing in happier times from the previous season, she continued, “I want to still talk to him like I normally do, but I’m like yeah, I fucking hate you.” Oh damn! Perhaps the most glaring clue came in her next sentence when she said, “There’s plenty of fish in the sea. Ones that don’t sleep with other fishies.”

Oh snap! Back in her bunk we see her abruptly tell him, “I can’t talk, bye,” and that would be the appropriate thing to say to a dude that (allegedly) cheated. It sure sounds like that’s what went down, though that’s all that we get from Malia about the situation in this episode.

However, it seems as though a rebound could be brewing as deckhand David Pascoe is certainly making his crush on her known. Ahoy, is there another boatmance ahead?

Below Deck Mediterranean airs Monday at 9 pm ET/PT on Bravo, with new episodes streaming one week early on Peacock.
