It wouldn’t be a season of “Under deck‘ without at least one boatmance, and this season of Below Deck Mediterranean it’s boatswain Storm Smith and second stew Natalya Scudder who have met.
Viewers have seen the two grow closer throughout Season 7, with Scudder often spending her evenings snuggling up with Smith in his bunk. However, they also had a few arguments. In the last episode, Smith gifted Scudder a watch, but the Australian native admitted she was worried things were moving too fast.
While fans will have to see how their relationship develops over the course of the season, Smith has since shared that the two are not dating and he is in fact in a happily relationship with someone else. “Happy birthday, life is beautiful with you,” he wrote Instagram alongside several photos traveling with his girlfriend Chloe Griffin.

Scudder said she still has the watch Smith gave her and agreed that she might have been a little mean to him
Scudder appeared on Watch What Happens Live on September 27 and host Andy Cohen asked her about the watch Smith gave her. “I actually have it in my pocket,” she confessed. “Well, yes, I have it.”
She said she actually wears it occasionally, depending on what she’s wearing that day, but joked that she couldn’t tell the time on the watch, so she doesn’t use it for its functional purpose.
Cohen then asked Scudder if, looking back, she was “a little mean” to Smith. Scudder replied: “I look back and I’m like, okay, I think Australians, we’re having a bit of banter, I don’t know if I’m saying things like it is. But I look back and I’m like, wow, maybe I don’t have to be an ab****.” She said she might need to think about herself a bit and joked that she should go to Costa Rica to meditate.
Smith addressed their relationship on his Instagram Stories and Scudder responded
Smith also opened up about his relationship with Scudder during an Instagram Q&A. Someone asked him about the status of their relationship and he replied that they were “on good terms” according to screenshots saved by Monsters and Critics.
He explained that their lives went in “different directions” after the show, but that he wished her the best and appreciated the time they spent together. “She provided me with a support system when I was super stressed,” he wrote. “I will always appreciate that and cherish the memories we made together.”
Scudder posted Smith’s story to her own Instagram and agreed with him, telling her followers that “Below Deck Med” only showed people little moments of their days. She also said she treasured Smith and the memories they shared. The second stew urged fans to keep “any nasty opinions” to themselves or otherwise unfollow her.
