Every season of Below Deck has at least one controversial crew member who divides castmates and viewers, and this season it appears to be Camille Lamb.
The deck/stew has caused some trouble so far in their time on St. David, clashing with second stew Alissa Humber and causing problems with boatswain Ross McHarg and chief stew Fraser Olender. Her work ethic has been questioned by both department heads and viewers, some of whom have done so accused her to be lazy.
This week, Lamb hit back at her critics in a series of clips posted to her Instagram stories. Speaking during the drive, the Bravo star said: “I’m not a bad person because I come off lazy.” Admitting she has “a certain attitude” and explaining that she’s “working on it, getting better, growing” .

Camille Lamb told ‘Below Deck’ fans she’s not a ‘mean girl’ and asked people to ‘please stop’ the negative messages
Lamb, who also appeared on American Idol, told her followers that “at the end of the day, I’m proud of myself again.” She said she’s “not a mean girl, not a bad person” and that she has “morals, ethics, values, all those things.”
The “Below Deck” deck/stew then lashed out at her haters, saying, “I’m not going to go on your page and talk about how the fact that you have two followers and are overweight is like.” She added with a grin: “I’m just not going to do it, I’m not.”
Lamb acknowledged she didn’t want to pay attention to “people like you,” but asked her critics to have “a little mercy” and “a little mercy” during the holiday season. “Please stop,” she concluded, telling them that waking up to hateful messages every day was going to get “a bit much.”
Camille Lamb said it’s difficult having two bosses and has also fallen out with Alissa Humber, the second stew
The first few episodes have seen Lamb struggling to figure out her place as a deck/stew, reporting to both the boatswain and chief stew. Both Olender and McHarg have spoken to each other about Lamb wanting to get the bare minimum of work done, including in the final episode when she confronted them about her ideal schedule and wanted to work more on deck.
Lamb has also fallen out with Humber, the second stew, on several nights of their collaboration. Lamb didn’t respond well to Humber’s directions and reminders of the work she had to do, and the two even began yelling at each other before the third stew, Hayley De Sola Pinto.
In conversation with Showbiz Cheat Sheet, Lam said she’s used to working as a sole stewardess on boats and doesn’t like being told what to do when she already has plans to do it. “I think it’s pretty normal for the second stew to delegate, but with an appropriate leadership style,” she shared.
