The recently aired Episode 9 of Below Deck Mediterranean Season 7 featured Bosun Storm Smith getting annoyed with deckhand Jason Gaskell's behavior.

Previously, Jason was seen cursing his superior Storm and displaying unprofessional behavior when the latter tried to teach him. In the latest episode, the deckhand disrespected Storm's commands and claimed he was not his "dog."

Below Deck Mediterranean fans called out Jason for showcasing passive-aggressive behavior in Episode 9. They slammed him for not following the rules and not respecting Storm's orders.

Jason complaining that he’s not Storm’s dog, when didn’t even answer the phone… Jason doesn’t like people, doesn’t like following rules… Why did he sign for this? #BelowDeckMed

In the latest installment, Bosun Storm asked him to change and eat in 15 minutes so that the next deckhand could be released in the next 15 minutes. However, Jason took 45 minutes and didn't answer Storm on the radio.

Below Deck Mediterranean fans think Jason Gaskell will be fired

In Below Deck Mediterranean Season 7 Episode 9, the deck crew organized water sports and other games for the charter guests. After the games, Storm asked his deckhands to quickly sort out all the toys and equipment. Additionally, he gave Jason Gaskell 15 minutes to change and eat.

While Mzi "Zee" Dempers and Courtney Veale were waiting for their turn to change, Jason was seen taking his sweet time to return. As he returned, Storm pointed out that he was late and gave him a list of things to do.

Jason mumbled:

“Sorry I wasn’t fast enough. I’m not your dog.”

After the guests left, Jason enjoyed a drink with chef Dave White while Storm and the rest of the deckhands were working. Jason's behavior was not appreciated by fans, who thought he might get fired.

Take a look at the reactions here:

#BELOWDECKMED: Jason has one of those egos where he can’t take direction. he’s at the bottom of the totem pole because he has an attitude. a real chip on his soldiers. i see him getting fired sooner rather than later.
Well Jason when you constantly argue with your team & are generally disrespectful no one wants to be around that 🤷🏼‍♀️ #BelowDeckMed
Jason:’Sorry I wasn’t fast enough. I’m not your dog’Definitely not. Everyone loves dogs #BelowDeckMed
Jason’s childish comment of “I’m not a dog” bc he didn’t respond on his radio to his BOSS just shows he may not make it this season. #BelowDeckMed
Jason is so negative #BelowDeckMed
Jason needs a new attitude 🙄 #BelowDeckMed
Is Jason gonna be the next Raygan 🤔 #BelowDeckMed
Sandy should make Jason a provisional deckhand! #BelowDeckMed
Jason's a d-bag. I work with radios and you ALWAYS acknowledge a call. It ain't rocket surgery. Jason is very passive-aggressive.#belowdeckmed
Jason it's time for you to go #BelowDeckMed

Below Deck Mediterranean Season 7 Episode 9 recap

The latest episode of Below Deck Mediterranean Season 7 featured a group of charter guests from the LGBTQI+ community. The crew members, too, had fun because of them.

Third stew Kyle Viljoen was one of the most affected crew members after the guests left. He found himself attracted to one of the guests named Frank Fay. They flirted with each other and tried to contain their romance because of Kyle's job.

As per the rules of his job profile, he may get fired for getting involved with a guest. Although Captain Sandy Yawn didn't witness Kyle breaking the rule, she did call him out when he ignored work to have fun with Frank.

Episode 9 also showed chef Dave White and chief stew Natasha Webb clearing the air about their feelings towards each other. While Natasha clarified that nothing would ever happen between the two in the future, Dave mentioned that he was hurt because he had feelings for her and would take his time to get back to normal.
