These stew hands know how to work hard and play hard!
Below Deck Down Under stars Tumi Mhlongo and Magda Ziome spoke exclusively with OK! about how they, along with the rest of the cast of the Peacock spin-off, manage to ensure each of their charter guests have the most thrilling experience possible while still getting the job done.
"We have to be very professional in our industry because we are delivering the best standards," Ziome dishes. "But at the same time, you want to make sure that the guests are having the best time. It's a bit tricky."
"It comes from experience of learning what is right and what is wrong," Mhlongo explains of not getting too chummy with guests. "On smaller boats you can do more rogue things that I personally would not want to be involved in," she continues adding the crew's casual manner, "depends on the size of the boat" you're working on.
Remaining focused on business can be especially hard when the customers coming on board are wildly entertaining. This season, the crew welcomed a group of strippers and rock stars to set sail. Surprisingly, Mhlongo says the outlandish crew were her favorite guests of the tour.
"They were so nice and so kind," the seasoned boater reveals of her shocking reaction to the partying crew. "They were by far my favorite. They radiate love and are the most down to earth people."
Anyone who steps foot on the sprawling yacht would find it difficult not to glob on to this visually stunning crew. "I've never worked with such a hot crew," Ziome gushed about her fellow staff members — most notably Captain Jason Chambers.
"Since day one, [being around the crew] was such an energy boost," the model notes of everyone's good looks, adding it made her want to "smash the entire season."
Mhlongo and Ziomek are both newbies to the reality television world however, they both consider themselves huge Bravo fans before joining the hit series. "Put me on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and I'll show everybody flat!" Mhlongo jokes.
"My favorite is definitely The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills but I also really love The Real Housewives of New York," Ziome spills. "It's top of the top!"
