She was a part of the show since its inception in 2016, known for her no-nonsense attitude, quick wit, and the occasional bust-up with co-stars.

Like anything, nothing lasts forever and she was forced off the show in 2020. Here, we’re going to look at what happened and what Hannah does now that she’s back in Australia.

Hannah was gobsmacked when Sandy decided to let her go.

Hannah Ferrier was a Chief Stew on Below Deck Mediterranean since Season 1 and lasted until Season 5 when she was fired by Captain Sandy Yawn.

Captain Sandy took issue with the Australian taking Valium on board, violating maritime laws concerning contraband. Soon after, she booted her off the charter and has never returned to Bravo‘s television series.

In the episode, the captain ordered a meeting with Hannah, saying: “Hannah, it has been brought to my attention that you have drugs on board and that you haven’t presented a prescription for that. The valium was laid out with your pot in your cabin… This is very serious, management is involved.”

Sandy added she couldn’t “go to sea with somebody doing drugs” and later dismissed Ferrier. Previously, Hannah had been found hyperventilating on the floor and experienced panic attacks on board.

Do Captain Sandy and Hannah still talk?

After a dramatic firing in Season 5, Hannah Ferrier has since stated that she is not on speaking terms with her former captain, Sandy Yawn.

On her podcast, Hannah has accused Captain Sandy of being “jealous” of her social media following, which sits at over 800,000 followers on Instagram, and also said she was a micro-manager.

While you can probably rule out a Hannah return in Season 8, the five seasons she spent on the high seas were so good newer viewers should definitely go check them out.
