Ferrier was briefly replaced temporarily by Bugsy DrakeFollowing her season 5 exit she stated that an ideal chief stew would have the ability to handle both ends of the job. “Because you want somebody who is good at their job, but then at the end of the day, we kind of go like, ‘Oh it’s yachting.’ It’s still a reality show,” she added. “So you want someone who’s funny, who’s quick. Who isn’t afraid of taking people on. Not afraid to school their stews.”

The Florida native added: “I kind of felt like first impressions for me are, ‘Hey, they get to have free reign. Let’s see what they can do.’ Like, I am not going to stand over them, but I wouldn’t sit on the bridge knowing that they’re down crew members and not bail them out.
