Raygan Tyler from Below Deck Mediterranean season 7 is off to a rocky start as superyacht Home‘s bosun. Following in the big footsteps of Malia White, Raygan didn’t make the best first impression with viewers in episode one. Repeatedly disappearing for smoke breaks and ordering her only deckhand (the other two were late arriving on the yacht) Jason Gaskell around, Below Deck Med fans are pondering if Raygan will last the entire season.
In episode 2, things only got worse for Raygan when her whole crew finally arrives. She struggled coming up with a proper schedule or management style for her deckhand team. The review from the first charter guests gave Raygan and her team a poor grade. Captain Sandy expects the deck team to step it up on the next charter. But the Bravo preview for episode 3 foreshadows more trouble for Raygan. The The preview not only shows Chef Dave White getting jealous over Chief Stew Natasha Webb, but also reveals Raygan getting very drunk at the club the night before their second charter.
