Former Below Deck's chief stew Kate Chastain recently offered her opinion on Below Deck Mediterranean's new chief stew, Natasha Webb. The former appeared on an episode of Brandi Glanville's podcast Unfiltered, where she claimed that Natasha was "awful at her job."
According to Kate, Natasha's approach didn't seem elegant enough for a yacht, and she wasn't afraid to say what was on her mind about the Below Deck Mediterranean's chief stew.
Kate, 39, appeared on Below Deck from season 2 to season 7 as a chief stew. Opening up about Natasha's behavior, she said,
"I think she’s just really, really awful at her job and in so many ways. First of all, I understand in my first season, I put a humongous d–k blanket on a bed. But that was elegant. When she brings out that dildo, it’s just tacky and so cringe."
Talking about Natasha's bar skills, Kate shared,
"It’s just disgusting. It’s like you were at a Daytona spring break bar."
The Bravo alum further said,
“It’s almost an embarrassment for the yachting industry, like, girl is giving cruise vibes. You know, obviously, she doesn’t drink as much as us, because anybody who actually drinks is, like, ‘Give me vodka. Give me champagne. Give me a tequila. A mixed drink, I’ll drink too. Espresso martini and a margarita. Maybe an Aperol spritz.’”
Kate's comments about Natasha came after Hannah Ferrier referred to her replacement on the series as boring. Kate and Hannah weren't the only ones to criticize Natasha's work ethics. Fans on social media have also often slammed Natasha for gossiping with Kyle Viljoen and texting her ex-boyfriend rather than focusing on work.
In an earlier episode of Below Deck Mediterranean, Natalya even criticized Natasha for not doing her duties on the ship. She claimed Natasha didn't do her job on time.
