The latest season of “Below Deck Mediterranean” has been filled with drama, but perhaps none more so than the ongoing feud between Tumi Mhlongo and Natalya Scudder. The two yachties simply couldn’t get along, and their constant bickering became a problem for the crew and Captain Sandy Yawn.
It all started with their initial impressions of each other. From the start, Mhlongo and Scudder didn’t see eye to eye, and things only got worse from there. Their arguments escalated until they were unable to work together effectively, and Yawn was forced to intervene.
When Yawn overheard the two fighting, she called them into her office on the bridge. She warned them that she was ready to put them both off the boat if they couldn’t resolve their differences. It was a wake-up call for Mhlongo and Scudder, but unfortunately, it didn’t solve the problem.
Mhlongo opened up to Yawn about the constant resistance she was feeling from Scudder. “I don’t like her. I don’t want you here. I don’t like her,” Mhlongo complained. Yawn advised her to handle the situation herself, but also offered to mediate if necessary. She reminded Mhlongo that being a boss isn’t easy, and not everyone will like her.
Despite Yawn’s advice, the tension between Mhlongo and Scudder continued. They were able to put on a polite front in front of the other crew members, but their underlying issues were never resolved. In the end, Scudder’s time on the show was cut short when she chose to leave early due to the drama – but this time, it wasn’t with Mhlongo.
The feud between Mhlongo and Scudder has been a major storyline on this season of “Below Deck Mediterranean.” Fans have been tuning in week after week to see if the two will be able to put their differences aside and work together effectively. While the drama has certainly made for entertaining television, it’s also a reminder of how difficult it can be to work with people you don’t get along with.
As for Mhlongo and Scudder, it’s unclear if they’ve been able to resolve their issues since filming wrapped. But one thing is for sure – their feud will go down in “Below Deck Mediterranean” history as one of the most memorable conflicts on the show.
