One standout of Season 1 of “Below Deck Mediterranean,” is bubbly deckhand Danny Zureikat. At the start of the season, the energetic Florida native had big dreams of kicking off a yachting career, according to Bravotv.com. And while he succeeded at being a social butterfly with guests, he managed to alienate himself from nearly the entire crew and ultimately get sent home mid-season by Captain Mark. His biggest foes on the Ionian Princess crew included deckhand Bobby Giancola, bosun Bryant Kattenburg and Chief Stew Hannah Ferrier.
Aside from getting in arguments with his crewmates, Danny also got himself into trouble by getting too close to the guests. During one “Below Deck Med” charter, he was caught flirting, writing a poem, and even kissing a Tilted Kilt model named Morgan. At first, he only got a slap on the wrist, until Hannah unveiled the full extent of his messy behavior.
The ultimate nail in Danny’s coffin was when Hannah discovered the deckhand showing photos of the Tilted Kilt ladies to other charter guests. Captain Mark had enough of his “toxic” behavior and handed him a plane ticket home. The captain even went as far as to say that Danny should consider another career outside of yachting because his work was “subpar,” according to the Bravo clip.
