It was a landslide victory for Heather Chase, who nabbed an impressive 24.4% of the votes in wowplus’s survey. Though Chase only appeared on a single season of “Below Deck” (Season 9, dubbed “My Seanna”) that was enough to make her the big favorite amongst the Bravo fans we polled. In second place? That would be another one-timer in the form of “Below Deck Mediterranean” Season 6 “Lady Michelle”‘s Katie Flood, with 20.45% of you choosing Flood as your favorite ever chief stew.
In third place… it’s a tie! Outspoken Kate Chastain (who took on the role of chief stew on the original iteration between seasons 2 and 7 and is swapping her role as chief stew to become a mom) earned 16.49% of the votes before going on to appear on “The Traitors.” That makes her just as popular as “Below Deck Mediterranean”‘s Hannah Ferrier, who appeared in the first five seasons of the spin-off and made it clear she knew how to keep the crew in line.
Next up, 12.54% of those we asked named Daisy Kelliher as their favorite ever “Below Deck” chief stew, as she brought her skills to Seasons 2 and 3 of “Below Deck Sailing Yacht.” Following up in sixth place after earning herself 9.62% of the votes, it’s none other than the ever-positive Aesha Scott of the Australian spin-off “Below Deck Down Under,” which aired its first season in 2022.
