Amy Johnson

Below Deck Alum Amy Johnson Is Engaged

Below Deck Season 2 stew Amy Johnson is not the most memorable alum.  She was charming, sweet, hard working, and ever cheerful.  Despite this, Chief Stew Kate Chastain still found a way to ostracize her.  In typical Kate style, she used a friendship with her second stew to alienate the third stew.  And Kat Held was happy to play along.

Amy was, in fact, fantastic at her job.  But that doesn’t make for entertaining reality TV, so after Amy left the series to be closer to her boyfriend, she was quickly replaced.  Ironically, she and Kate became friends after filming wrapped.  Amy has been active on social media since her departure, supporting the show and her former chief stew.

Whether you love watching Kate Chastain on Below Deck or you can’t stand her, you have to admit that she’s interesting. Kate always has a lot to say on everything…and everyone. She has had her fair share of drama with her fellow cast members, but she actually keeps in touch with most of them- even her former flame Ben Robinson.

Kate had a lot to say about Ben, but she also talked about some other members of the Below Deck and a couple people from Below Deck Mediterranean. She even blamed the success of Vanderpump Rules for Bobby Giancola’s recent off-putting behavior.

Kate Chastain

Season four of Below Deck has found Kate Chastain and Ben Robinson butting heads of late. Kate claims that it’s not sexual tension (left over from their previous romantic relationship), but simply work tension. It ia just how Ben and Kate operate, apparently!

Kate explains, “There was definitely still tension between Ben and I this season, but it definitely wasn’t sexual. I think the fact that we’re so comfortable with each other can be both a good and a bad thing when working on a boat together. Sometimes minor disagreements escalate into heated arguments quicker than they should because Ben and I don’t feel the need to politely hold back like we might with other crew members.”

Kelley Johnson and Nico Scholly on Watch What Happens Live

Below Deck stars Kelley Johnson and Nico Scholly were Andy‘s guests on Watch What Happens Live tonight. While in the clubhouse, they dished on Captain Lee‘s toughness, the Emily Warburton Adam love triangle (Or was it a quadrangle? Whatever is was, I still do not get all the fuss over Emily!), Kate Chastain‘s legal woes, and more.

Andy asks Nico about his accent. He jokes that it’s “mostly drunk.” Nico shares that he’s from Chicago, but adds, “Working on a boat for almost two years [and yachting for five years], you start picking up these different culture accents.”

Captain Lee

It’s no secret that Captain Lee Rosbach was all over the crew of Valor on Below Deck this week, and more specifically, all over newly appointed bosun Kelley Johnson. Lee claims the entire crew is indeed struggling, and took to his blog to break down this week’s performance and drama!

“Wow, this week is really something else. I have no frigging idea where to start. We had a lot of stuff going on, and plus we had a charter break out in the middle of it all,” admits Captain Lee. Although the charter guests were fun, he observes, “The crew, however, is struggling just a bit, and there are a variety of reasons.”

Kate-Chastain-Smiling-White-Uniform-Below-Deck

It’s been a cruel summer waiting for the original Below Deck to sail back into our lives. But fear not! We only have a little over a month until Captain Lee, Stud of the Sea, is handing out plane tickets to a new crew of dysfunctional yachties! Below Deck season 4 will premiere on Bravo Sept 6, featuring a mix of old and new faces.  

So, who’s coming aboard this fall? Well, chief stew Kate Chastain, her many fonts and her delightfully on-point snark, will lead the interior crew, including newbies Emily Warburton-Adam (second stew) and Sierra Storm (third stew). Kate is in a new relationship with a woman, a tidbit that will be highlighted on season 4. Although we know that this relationship led to some sketchy shenanigans after filming, we’re not sure how much drama between Kate and her girlfriend will play out on TV.

reunion below deck crew

“He’s Captain Lee (Captain Lee, Captain Lee), when you crew for him, you’re working hard as can be. Fool around, you’ll scrub the decks till three. He’s rough. He’s tough. He’s alpha to a tee. Captain Lee…he’s the stud of the sea!” Can I get an “AMEN”?!?

We learned a lot of juicy little secrets on the final installment of the Below Deck reunion, didn’t we? Captain HAROLD Lee Rosbach? Respect! The reunion begins where last week’s left off…galley-gate! Raquel “Rocky” Dakota Bartlow is still accusing Kate Chastain of boozing on the clock when the fire started, and Captain Lee reminds her that former chef Leon “Beef Cheeks” Walker said she was and then admitted that she wasn’t. One way or another, he was lying. Amy Johnson skirts Andy Cohen’s direct question as to whether she’s ever seen Kate drinking on charter by responding that she thinks all of the finger pointing is petty. Andy drops the subject and moves onto my favorite Bravo promo in the history of television. Lee jokes that his wife “has gotten a lot of mileage” out of his “alpha to a tee” persona, and the crew reveals he’s a bit of a celebrity…and his first name is actually Harold, which Andy never knew. Lee’s plethora of colorful metaphors is revisited, with “when you get caught with your tit in the ringer” being everyone’s new favorite. Rocky accuses the Captain of showing support to his chief stew and head bosun, but Amy disagrees. She believes he is there for his entire crew, and Lee is quick to respond he’d lay the smack down on anyone–even Eddie Lucas–if he thought it was necessary.

below deck reunion

“Mental wounds not healing; who and what’s to blame? I’m goin’ off the rails on a crazy train!” What could possibly be to blame? Maybe those sparkly butterflies occupying the ceiling of Eros? I so wanted another boat ballad to steer us into last night’s fun, but a little Ozzy Osbourne never hurt anyone. Plus, a boat is just a train on water, right? I don’t know about y’all, but I think it’s high tide, um, I mean “high time,” that the crew of Below Deck got a proper reunion! And a two-parter to boot! They have clearly arrived by Bravo standards! Andy Cohen has pulled the yachties from the WWHL clubhouse, and he feels like Captain Lee Rosbach has called them all to the bridge of the Eros.

Emile Kotze is sporting his grandfather’s suit, Eddie Lucas is looking adorable with a beard (it almost–ALMOST–makes me forget his douche-esque behavior this season!) and Kate Chastain has foregone the resting bitch face…for the time being. The get together kicks off with the gang recalling their favorite charter guests, and Connie Arias recalls that her roommate Emile would ask her to hit the deck a few minutes early every morning so he could spank the salami (or whatever the phrase may be). Lovely. Andy inquires as to why Raquel “Rocky” Dakota Bartlow is always chatting with her pal the ceiling, and she jokes that there were likely sparkly butterflies and unicorns flying around up there. When Eddie tries to crack a joke, Rocky jumps. Does Eddie want to get into things already? Is his girlfriend there so Rocky can share some of the sordid details of their laundry room hook-ups?
