Ben Robinson and Kate Chastain

Ben Robinson was one of the most popular personalities in the Below Deck franchise, working with many different cast members during his multiple seasons on the Bravo show and its spin-off Below Deck Mediterranean.

The fan-favorite chef – who has worked with two popular chefs in Kate Chastain and Hannah Ferrier – has never been afraid to speak his mind about his co-stars. In a recent interview with Showbiz Cheat Sheet, Robinson was asked which of the two chief stews was more likely to “put chef Ryan McKeown in his place”. McKeown is the Below Deck Down Under chef who caused a stir with Aesha Scott, the Chef Stew.

As viewers may recall, Robinson also worked briefly with Scott while serving as a stew under Ferrier’s guidance. Ferrier has already shared some of McKeown’s comments about Scott and Chastain Showbiz Cheat Sheet that she doesn’t think she would “look him in the eye” since she’s “more of a passive-aggressive fighter… I love creative revenge”. She added, “I hate to teach him, but Hannah would do it.”

Robinson said both chief stews have different ways of handling confrontation, but overall he respects Kate more.

The beloved cook agreed with Chastain that she was “more passive,” but added, “I feel like you don’t really want to upset Kate because it’s almost like she’s dragging you into a black hole and you start lot to question.” He then said, “Actually, I wouldn’t get on the wrong side of Kate.” Regarding how Ferrier would fare in a confrontation with a chef like McKeown, Robinson said:

Hannah would just almost be like a brawl. She is confrontational. And I’m confrontational because it’s about timing and stuff like that. So I think I could probably relate to Hannah on a more human level than Kate. But I think I respect Kate more.

Robinson said he wanted to “keep the peace” with Chastain. “It’s all about peacekeeping,” he shared, “whereas Hannah, you’re going to get into it and hopefully put down your swords and hug. And take it from there and hopefully learn from it. But you know, they’re both tricky.”

Robinson also got involved with Scott, as he had some experience working with her. He said: “Aesha has, excuse my French, but she has verbal diarrhea and it’s pretty tough in the kitchen.” He said the stewardess was “funny” and what she talked about was often “hilarious” though he had to “ban them from the kitchen” because it was sometimes difficult to concentrate.

Robinson said cooks should be allowed to throw occasional tantrums

Robinson also said that he believes “serious or good” cooks should be able to throw tantrums occasionally. “The food must not be compromised,” he spilled. “And if we see it being compromised by the staff or whatever, then that’s a problem.” He explained:

Eating is all about the timing and if it doesn’t run out it’s going to be cold or soggy or whatever. [So] I think good cooks should throw away their toys occasionally. I think if you are a pushover as a chef then your food will be affected. I believe that.
