Brynn Whitfield of the Real Housewives of New York was excited to be part of her first official BravoCon. And while it doesn’t look like she made a love connection there, Below Deck: Down Under star Captain Jason Chambers may be hearing from her soon.
“He’s a cutie patootie, so I’ll slide into his DMs,” Brynn told US Weekly hours after the two reality stars crossed paths. The hilarious housewife added, “I’m going to be like, ‘I can’t swim. Help me.’ Men love a damsel in distress.”

Or will she call Shep?
It was Andy Cohen who planted a potential romantic seed between Jason and Brynn when he introduced the captain to the Real Housewives franchise’s most eligible bachelorettes, including Brynn.
However, the fans are skeptical as Captain Jason seems to spend more time with cast members from another reality TV franchise, Vanderpump Rules. He was spotted snapping pictures with Lala Kent and again at an event with Scheana Shay and Brock Davies.
“I love Shep. He’s really cool. He’s funny. And Andy was telling me he’s a massive — he’s a book fanatic as well,” Brynn shared. “We’re going to get a drink. Just friends.”
Purely platonic for now
While some fans may have hoped for something to transpire between the two, Brynn made it clear they are just friends, at least for now.
“I love all those guys. You just wanna hang out with them,” she gushed about the Southern Charm men. “I don’t know if it’s good to date any of them, but you want to hang out and get a drink and have them be like, your guy. I have a lot of hot guy friends — platonic — and I think they are really cool.”
So maybe playfully cool isn’t her style right now. Even Andy admitted that while Brynn may have had “her eye on Shep” throughout the weekend, it didn’t look like anything would happen.
Brynn first admitted to a “crush” on Shep during Watch What Happens Live. She even doubled down over several other appearances on the show, saying she wouldn’t date Austen Kroll because she was committed to Shep and revealing that Shep had slid into her DMs.
For his part, Shep shared that he was excited to meet her to laugh about it and hang out but didn’t think he would do anything about it unless she insisted.
