'Below Deck': Kiko accepts Vegas dinner blame, fans ask why isn't anyone talking about the 72 plates he served?
'Kiko is the clear winner of #BelowDeckMed,' a fan commented
'Below Deck Mediterranean' Season 5 has ended but the drama is far from over. This week's reunion episode was all about digging up graves. Although everyone got their turn, the spotlight was on chef Hindrigo 'Kiko' Lorran who shared his experience on The Wellington.
The famed Vegas-themed dinner came up as he explained what went wrong and how it could have been better. Kiko apologized and said the presentation could have been much better and that he would fire himself too. "Oh my god, it's horrible," Kiko reacted to the fried meals he had served to the charter guests.
It was interesting how he took all of it on his stride and seemed like he had moved on from it, while others were busy pointing fingers at how former chief stewardess, Hannah Ferrier, was partially responsible for Kiko's predicament.
In her defense, she felt terrible for having Kiko put on a spot but none of it was intentional. Reunion host Andy Cohen asked if Hannah had a conversation with Captain Sandy Yawn about it, to which she responded in positive. She did speak with Sandy about the menu but only after it was served. Sandy said if she knew about it earlier, she would have pulled Kiko aside and asked him to rethink it.
Meanwhile, fans cannot stop praising Kiko for accepting his fault and apologizing for it. At the same time, they were also displeased why no one spoke of the 72 plates (6 course meals for 12 guests) that he served to the charter guests and that too all by himself? This was after Sandy implied that Kiko may not be qualified enough to work on a superyacht.
"Kiko doesn’t understand the correct way to act at a reunion as he is taking responsibility and apologizing for what he thinks he screwed up. #BelowDeckMed," a fan commented, while another tweeted: "Kiko is the clear winner of #BelowDeckMed."
"Hold on. Wait a minute. So they just gonna talk about all his mistakes. And Not talk about that amazing 72 plate dinner he did!! WOW!! Kiko deserves so much better #BelowDeckMed," a user posted, while another shared: "How is Kiko not reacting to Sandy's bs!? Let's see Tom put out 72 dishes on a last minute request.
