Who is Malia White?

She lives an active lifestyle, and is always up for an adventure from growing up with five older brothers!

In season 5 she then became the first-ever woman bosun in the history of the show!

Viewers of the show haven’t always been Malia’s biggest fan, she was labelled a snitch back in season 2 for getting her colleague Hannah Ferrier fired after telling Captain Sandy about her having illegal Valium and a vape on board.

How did Malia lose her finger?

Malia has revealed that she lost part of her finger in an accident during her childhood.

Most fans noticed when she uploaded a photo on Instagram, which noticeably had part of her finger missing…

She responded to the claims, saying, “I lost it in an axe-ident! Seriously lol” – suggesting that she lost it in an accident with an axe (ouch!)
