Below Deck Mediterranean – Things Didn’t Heat Up Until After the Season
Though coy at first the reality star went on to reveal that it had been Jake who had made the first move. Malia went on to say that nothing really got heated until the season of Below Deck Mediterranean had wrapped.

When the subject of whether the captain approved of the relationship Malia answered unequivocally saying, “I don’t care.”
The questions tapered off with Malia sharing the good news that she and Jake were still together which was followed by a round of applause from the studio audience.
Below Deck Mediterranean – Malia Wasn’t Up For Another Boatmance
In August, Malia had told Bravo Insider that, after her breakup with Tom, she had no interest in pursuing another romance on the boat on Season 6 of Below Deck Mediterranean.
She said she was still talking with Jake at the time and that the breakup was still fresh. “You know, I’d just [gotten] out of a pretty bad breakup,” she said, adding that, at the time, she was still pretty closed off.
She made clear though that none of what had gone on meant that she would never date someone on the boat again, saying that in the yachting industry it makes sense for people to date others in the industry.
“So I’m not against it. I’m not saying no,” she said, adding that she just thought she had needed time, “like a little mourning period.”
