'Below Deck Mediterranean': Pete sexts ex-crew member Lara, disgusted fans say his texts 'gives them the creeps'
Pete Hunziker is turning out to be the eyesore of this season of 'Below Deck Mediterranean'. After being trolled for addressing his boss, Malia White, as "sweetheart", viewers are now calling him out for sending dirty texts to ex-crew member Lara Flumiani. Also, some are surprised that Pete has continued to be a part of the show despite being fired over racist remarks on social media.
Pete had a thing for Lara when she was around but wasn't able to express his feelings until she was ready to leave. He packed her suitcase and while at it, slipped in his card and later informed her about it. Even though Lara said she resents long-distance relationship, maybe she is just testing waters with Pete.
The day Lara quit her job and left for good, Pete walked around the deck doing his job and sobbing softly, which had his team member, Alex Radcliffe, laugh a little. In his green-room interview, Alex mentioned it was funny to see Pete get emotional about someone he has known for just a day. Pete was not even pronouncing her name correctly.
In this week's episode, he and Lara have started to exchange texts and they are quite dirty. Pete wrote to her: "I want you for breakfast, lunch and dinner." Although, it could mean he wants to be around her all day and every day, but fans are thinking differently. "This whole Pete and Lara "text" relationship is weird and a little uncomfortable. #BelowDeckMed," a fan commented, while another shared: "Ew to these pete and lara texts."
"Pete is a sexual deviant and gives me the creeps #BelowDeckMed," a viewer tweeted. "Pete texting Lara makes me want to throw up my breakfast lunch and dinner #belowdeckmed," another posted.
While Pete has managed to make a section of the viewers uncomfortable with his advances, there's a bunch of fans who are wondering if Pete has learned to spell/ pronounce Lara's name correctly. Apparently, yes. Also, for those confused: previously, Bravo had announced that it would edit out Pete's scenes starting mid-season.
