On June 17, Bravo announced they were firing Peter Hunziker from Below Deck, effectively immediately. In a post on Instagram, the company wrote, “Peter Hunziker of Below Deck Mediterranean has been terminated for his racist post,” the network announced. “Bravo and 51 Minds are editing the show to minimize his appearance for subsequent episodes.”
The deckhand appeared in three episodes, so far, of Season 5, which premiered earlier this month. The show is currently in post-production, so edits will be made moving forward to ensure Peter’s presence is as limited as possible.
