Hannah Ferrier has never been shy about offering her opinions on the cast of Below Deck, and she recently shared her thoughts on this season’s main stew in Below Deck Mediterranean.
While the former Bravo star admitted in an interview with Showbiz Cheat Sheet that she hadn’t seen the show’s seventh season, she said she’s heard a lot about head stew Natasha Webb. Ferrier said it doesn’t look like Webb will be a longtime head stew on the show, revealing that she “hopes they find one of those anytime soon.” Ferrier added:
She laughed, “I don’t actually watch it! I just listen to the summaries.” Ferrier said she listened to the Watch What Crappens podcast and host Ronnie Karam thought Webb was “boring, so I think she’s boring.”

Ferrier told the publication that finding a great long-term head stew for the series was “really difficult.” She added: “Obviously they’ve changed the main stew every season since I left. And I feel like filling her is such an important role at Below Deck.” Ferrier explained what a Chief Stew needs to bring to the table:
The former Chief Stew, who was infamously fired by Captain Sandy Yawn in Season 5 of Below Deck Mediterranean, revealed she spoke to Katie Flood prior to her appearance as the new Chief Stew in Season 6.
However, she said she did not speak to Webb. “I know there is a Natalya [Scudder] and a Natasha but I don’t know which is which… I thought they just posted a photo of the same person! And then I read it and I was like, no, these are two different people. Even with the casting, didn’t you think that might be a bit difficult?”
Webb started this season on a very positive note as she was joined by two very strong second pots, Kyle Viljoen and Scudder. From the first few episodes the inside team excelled in providing great smooth service and efficient communication between the stews and the galley.
It didn’t take long for some rifts to appear, however, particularly between Webb and chef Dave White, who not only came to the show with a past but also chose to share a booth. As viewers saw, White and Webb’s connection backfired when Webb distanced herself from the cook and rekindled her relationship with her ex-boyfriend.
The breakdown in Webb and White’s relationship spilled over into their working relationship, leading to some tense moments and service issues, particularly on wine pairing night. Scudder also expressed frustration with her two indoor colleagues, first when Viljoen was distracted by some guests and then by Webb’s frequent texting to her ex.
Below Deck Mediterranean airs Mondays at 8 p.m. Eastern and Pacific Time on Bravo.
