Below Deck Down Under star Tumi Mhlongo embraced her natural beauty flaw. Trolls tried to ruin her moment on social media. They wanted to bring her down, but it didn’t work. She’s already the breakout star of the Below Deck spinoff series.
Fans love Tumi’s glass and elegance on the show. They agree that she would make the perfect chief stewardess since she loves tablescapes and party planning. Aesha Scott is the chief stew on Season 1 of the series, but she’s struggled with leadership.
Fans think Tumi would be a natural replacement for Aesha. Find out what she has to say about being on the show and what trolls said about her looks. The Below Deck Down Under star shut them down immediately.
Below Deck Down Under debuted on Bravo
Last month, Below Deck Down Under debuted on Bravo alongside the Season 7 premiere of Below Deck Mediterranean. Below Deck Down Under Season 1 already premiered on the streaming service Peacock and has become a hit sensation. Unfortunately, it hasn’t been ratings gold on the network. It’s probably because most Bravo subscribers already have access to early episodes on Peacock.
Several cast members from the franchise have appeared on Watch What Happens Live recently to promote the series. Chef Ryan McKeown became the most controversial chef in Below Deck history. He didn’t hide his feelings for Aesha and Hannah Ferrier when he had a sit-down conversation with host Andy Cohen.
Aesha appeared not once, but twice on WWHL. Captain Jason Chambers also made his Clubhouse debut. This past week, Tumi Mhlongo made her appearance on the nightly talk show. She called it her “pinch me” moment. However, some trolls tried to drag her moment down on social media.
Tumi Mhlongo is still pinching herself
She can’t believe that she appeared on Watch What Happens Live. Tumi was a guest alongside Below Deck Med star Mzi “Zee” Dempers. However, some trolls poked fun at Tumi’s appearance. They picked at her natural beauty flaw — the gap in her teeth.
One Twitter user wrote, “She ok the teeth are [a little] much.” The Below Deck Down Under star took note of the tweet and reposted it with the following message, “I LOVE my teeth the gap is EVERYTHING.”
Another troll slammed Tumi against her crew member Culver Bradbury. The user wrote, “pull the stick outta ur a$$.” Tumi clapped back, “Ahhhhhh sweet cheeks your so angry … go grab a glass of champagne and relax poor thing.”
Some trolls tried to bring Tumi down. But, it’s hard to knock down the fan favorite of Below Deck Down Under. Despite the nonsense, she’s gotten overwhelming support on social media. She called her moment on WWHL one of her top “pinch me moments.”
