Below Deck Mediterranean star Malia White confirmed her relationship with Jake Baker, aka Jake the Engineer. However, this comes as no surprise to fans. Malia has been popping up on Jake’s Instagram a lot lately. The two even confirmed the romance rumors with a kiss.
Malia still hasn’t posted about him on her own Instagram page as of yet. So, while it’s not the first time she’s confirmed their relationship, it is the first time she’s publicly talked about it. The bosun played coy when host Andy Cohen asked her about her love life on Watch What Happens Live.
Below Deck Med star giggles about Jake Baker
Andy Cohen managed to get Malia White into the fit of the giggles. She appeared alongside David Pascoe on Monday night’s episode of WWHL. David had a crush on Malia in this season of Below Deck Mediterranean. But she didn’t feel the same. In fact, she had her eye on another guy who worked on board the superyacht.
Jake Baker is an engineer who works behind the scenes on the Bravo show. During her appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Malia answered questions about her relationship with the hunk. She even tried to get him on camera.
Andy cut to the chase by asking when they first started dating. Then he wanted to know who made the first move. Suddenly, Malia got shy and didn’t know what to say. She was overwhelmed by all the questions.
“I don’t know what you’re talking about,” Malia White before saying that he was the one who made the first move. “I think he did,” she said with a laugh.
Andy then asked if they tried to hide their relationship on the show. “No, because it happened afterward,” she responded. Next, Andy asked David if he was jealous when he found out. Both Malia and David admitted that he was not jealous since he respects their relationship.
Malia White doesn’t care if Captain Sandy finds out
Andy Cohen asked Malia White if Captain Sandy Yawn approves of their relationship. “I don’t care,” she said as the audience roared. On Monday night’s episode of Below Deck Med, Malia and Sandy went head-to-head with each other. Sandy flipped out when she found out that Malia didn’t report David’s accident.
The two got into a shouting max. Shortly thereafter, Sandy asked to speak with Malia. The two talked things over and apologized to one another. Despite her close relationship with the captain, Malia doesn’t care what Sandy thinks of her dating life. Sandy has already been vocal about the yachtie’s sexuality in the past.
At first, Malia seemed shy when talking about Jake. When Andy asked the biggest difference between Jake and her ex-boyfriend, Tom Checketts, she said, “The biggest one?” with a laugh. Andy was pleased with Malia’s response.
During an Instagram Live, Malia told fans that Jake was in the room. Fans wanted to see him, but he never appeared on camera. Malia said something that made her laugh offscreen, and fans wanted to know who she was laughing at. She just looked to the side, like she did during her WWHL interview.
Below Deck Med airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
