It has not been smooth sailing (no pun intended) for Mila — who is new to the reality series — so far. During the season premiere, the Le Cordon Bleu-trained cook served steak she licked and then put it in the microwave to keep warm for guests. It didn’t stop there, either, as Mila also served a plate of nachos to the group with pre-packaged shredded cheese.
In another episode, the reality TV starlet was asked to bake a cake for a guest’s birthday, but captain Sandy Yawn and chief stew Hannah Ferrier said it was inedible since it tasted like baking powder.
The Serbia native isn’t exactly winning fans or crew members over. “It’s not like faith, it’s being realistic. If you come on a yacht this size and you serve what we just served, then you’re not a very good chef, and that’s reality. I am not trying to be a bitch. I think she is a nice person,” Hannah said.
“I don’t want to see a man kissing a man in front of me,” she said. “In your home, you guys can do whatever you want. I don’t want my son to be growing up and seeing two men kissing each other and thinking this is normal because this is not f–king normal.”
Of course, Chrissy, 33, felt the need to say something. “Wowwwww I was hesitant to talk s–t about the chef’s cooking on Below Deck because I didn’t wanna be a jerkhole, but then it got to the end and it turns out she is also a terrible person,” the model wrote on Wednesday, June 12.

After the episode aired, stewardess Aesha Scott took to Twitter to share her feelings. “Any person in the world can kiss any other person in the world … Please know that homophobia is not ANYONES position in the show!!!!”
However, Captain Sandy is trying to move past the incident. “While we may not all agree with her, I’ll look at it as an opportunity to learn,” she wrote on social media on June 11. “It may be painful [to] hear her words, but maybe we can enlighten a few and make some changes. #BeTheChange.”
