The Season 8 finale of Below Deck Mediterranean aired on January 22, finally bringing an end to one of the wildest seasons yet.

Throughout the season, viewers witnessed the Italian Riviera-based yachties deal with many issues like drama in the workplace, being short of crew members due to health scares, and numerous ups and downs in their friendships and boatmances.

Despite those minor hiccups, the team provided an exceptional yachting experience for all their charter guests. In fact, the final guests of the season loved their time onboard so much that they found the perfect way to reward the Mustique crew.

Details on Below Deck Med’s Season 8 Final Tip Meeting

After the yachties said goodbye to the primary charter guest, Victor, who commended them on a “fantastic” job, they reconvened in the main salon for their last tip meeting. Judging by the appearance of the tip envelope, it looked like it was packed tightly, with the crew soon finding out just how generous their guest was following their trip.

During their meeting, Captain Sandy praised her team for navigating a “challenging” final charter before sharing details on their combined tips, which nearly topped $190,000.

“So here we have $15,000 – $1,153 per person, and our season total was $182,000 – $14,279 per person,” Captain Sandy told the crew, adding, “You made almost $15,000.”

As for everyone’s reaction to the sheer amount of income they made, Kyle Viljoen said aloud, “Holy crap,” while Lara Du Preez shared in a confessional, “That is a big amount of money.”

Captain Sandy continued by highlighting chief stew Tumi Mhlongo’s “leadership” shills, chef Jack Luby’s “enthusiasm” in the kitchen, and bosun Luka Brunton’s “nice work” in taking charge in his appointed position.

The good times didn’t stop there. The Mustique crew ended things with a celebratory dinner along with Captain Sandy, and of course, they capped off their night with one last bar crawl.
