Deckhand Alex Radcliffe from Below Deck Mediterranean instantly had his eye on second stew Christine “Bugsy” Drake.
Previews hint that the two get cozy in the jacuzzi, but also Drake teased that viewers may see her having a “boatmance” this season. “An interesting thing for me is I’m a lot more open to romance on a boat,” she dished with Decider.
