On a previous episode of Below Deck Med, chief stew Katie Flood was hoping to get an extra pair of hands. Second stew Lexi Wilson continues to slack off on the job. She was no good at the morning shift like Katie had hoped. So, Captain Sandy Yawn sent in another stew to help out. However, Delaney Evans is not experienced with the interior.
She is a deckhand who is studying to become a captain. Delaney doesn’t really know the job, so she needs a little guidance and training. But Katie doesn’t have time to train, she needs someone who can do the job. As she continues to stress out, Delaney mimics Lexi’s work ethic.
How did Delaney Evans like working with Lexi Wilson?
In a new interview with Bravo TV’s The Daily Dish, the Below Deck Med Season 6 crew member shared her thoughts on working with the fellow stew. Lexi had to show Delaney the ropes since Katie didn’t have time to thin. She couldn’t even figure out whether she should fire Lexi in favor of Delaney. The newbie claimed that she is not a “mean boss,” and doesn’t want to be.
Lexi didn’t like the idea of having a new crew member on board. In fact, it wasn’t a popular idea among the crew since they would have to share a tip with someone else. Shortly after Delaney joined the Lady Michelle, Lexi has been working beside her. She even showed her some of the work that’s expected of her. Lexi enjoys it because she enjoys “bossing” people around.
As for Delaney, she said she enjoyed working beside the former beauty pageant queen. She shared her thoughts on their work relationship in the Below Deck Mediterranean After Show.
“Lexi was a great teacher. Honestly, she was patient with me, she wasn’t quick to blame,” Delaney revealed. “She was super helpful. I definitely give props to Lexi for the way she took on the challenge and she helped me out in that situation.”
As a result, the two are getting along just fine. Lexi revealed on the After Show that they shared “laughs” and “banter.” Delaney feels that they did good work together. The two seemed to have gotten along, while Courtney Veales and Katie are beside themselves. It’s like two different worlds on the interior team.
The Below Deck Med stews are two of the same
Some Below Deck Med fans noticed that Delaney isn’t helping matters. In fact, she picked up some of Lexi’s work ethic. Both women are slow at their jobs, and kind of lazy at times. Even Chef Mathew Shea found it “annoying” that Delaney joined the superyacht to help out. She’s only hurting matters with her sluggish work ethic, and with messing up the cabin arrangements.
It’s only been a few days and Delaney’s arrival has already sparked a strong reaction among the crew. Katie didn’t hold back on her feelings about Delaney’s lack of effort. She has no idea what to do as she continues to struggle with her role as a leader and chief stewardess. As for Lexi and Delaney, they seem content as long as no one bothers them in the laundry room.
What are your thoughts? Do you think bringing another stew on board will help the interior team? Do you think Delaney and Lexi share the same work ethic? Sound off below in the comments.
Below Deck Med airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
