What's wrong with Lloyd on 'Below Deck Mediterranean'?

Fans of the show have likely already seen the season trailer where Malia White and Captain Sandy have an argument that seems to involve Lloyd. Fans can see that something happens to Lloyd while on the ship, but it's not super clear what that is.

"It's an incident report, Malia," Sandy says to Malia, who adds that she's not a chief officer. "I don't give a f--k," the captain says back. "You should have come to me when he was hurt."

Then we see Lloyd vomiting and complaining of chest pains. Next, Sandy says his "blood pressure is high" and pushes the idea that Lloyd "needs to go to the hospital." Whatever happened to Lloyd looks dramatic in the trailer, so much that his dad was freaked out when he saw it.

"I didn't tell my dad about it, and then he watched the trailer," Lloyd previously admitted to Distractify. "It scared the living daylights out of him. He was like, 'Bloody hell, boy, I didn't know anything about this!'"

But it doesn't sound like he's ready to spill the beans on what happens until it airs, which will occur this season. However, he assures fans that he is "absolutely fine now" after the injury, confirming that the injury happened while on the boat.

Following the midseason trailer being dropped, it appears that the injury is set to come soon — and the trailer even hints that Lloyd may need to leave his station. But considering that he's doing OK today, hopefully, he wasn't away from Below Deck Med too long.

"It was a situation that happened while I was on board," he told Distractify, "but when you watch it, you'll see it, but I'm absolutely fine now."

The injury isn't the only surprise for Lloyd this season.

Lloyd also opens up about his sexuality during 'Below Deck Med' Season 6.

On the Aug. 9 episode of Below Deck Med, Lloyd had a very unscripted emotional moment where he opened up about his sexuality. Speaking to David Pascoe, Malia, and Katie Flood, the deckhand revealed that he was "treated like a piece of s--t by my captain" and encountered hate speech during a past yachting job.

During the conversation, Lloyd said that he is "90 percent straight" and was thankful that he had the support from his fellow deck mates. "I was absolutely not planning on opening up about that whatsoever," he told E! about his conversation regarding his sexuality. "It was purely an in-the-moment thing, the level of comfort and security I felt around [my team], and the topics of conversation that had previously been discussed that evening was certainly a big factor in that."

Below Deck Med airs on Bravo Mondays at 9 p.m. EST.
