Who is Storm Smith dating?

Since Season 7 began, Below Deck Med fans have felt that Storm and Chief Natasha’s second stew, Natalya Scudder, might begin dating on the shore. In a clip from the Bravo show, the co-workers are heard swapping flirty remarks during their shifts.

In one scene, Natalya warns Storm to “keep your eyes to yourself” and the deckhand replies, “I’ll try.” Natalya also notes that he asked her to climb on the boat with him so he could have her “all to himself.”

Although Storm has seemed interested in heating up a romance with Natalya, his Instagram tells a different story. In July 2022, he posted a photo carousel of him and his girlfriend, Chloe Griffin, who also lives in Italy. The pair appear smitten and have several photos of them kissing in front of gorgeous backdrops.

“Coupla adventures upcoming with this one #montenegro,” he wrote.

Is Storm coming back for ‘Below Deck Med’ Season 8?

Season 7 of Below Deck Med premiered on July 11, 2022, and fans are already waiting to know details about Season 8. However, as of now, Bravo hasn’t said much regarding another season.

If you ask us, Storm is a shoo-in to return for another season of Below Deck Med. Beyond his flirtation with Natalya, he’s held his own amongst the other staff members. Storm is reportedly doing so well that Natalya’s BFF, Kyle Viljoen, thinks he’s more than qualified to be a bosun.

“I don't spend much time with these deckhands ... So, seeing from the outside, I never knew he had so much depth than what I really thought he has," Kyle told Entertainment Tonight in July 2022. "I generally feel, watching from the outside, he has such great leadership skills.”

“He's like, 'OK, I see there's a problem. Someone needs to jump in and take over,” Kyle continued. “And he seems like the person that can step up to it. If I had the opportunity to, I would've definitely promoted him.”

Below Deck Mediterranean airs on Monday night at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
