Bravotv.com: You have a good deal of experience on boats -- what was your first impression of this boat? Of the crew? Anything/anyone stand out to you immediately?
Kat Held: My first impression of the boat was that it was obviously big. I thought the master head had a nice layout, the exterior parts of the boat, like the sun deck, the main deck, and the aft deck, offered a great space for the guests to spend time outside; the crew quarters were roomy so I was happy about that, although I did feel that the interior decor was a little outdated.
In terms of the crew, everyone from the start was pretty friendly. C.J. and Ben stood out to me from the start because of their outgoing personalities. Captain Lee definitely came across as intimidating. I wasn't sure about Adrienne because most Chief Stewardesses in yachting have a reputation for not treating their crew with respect, so I was wary of her from the start. Sam seemed like a spitfire, and I was looking forward to working with her. Eddie and David were pretty quiet in the beginning, so I didn't have a strong opinion about them right away. Then there was Aleks. I honestly thought he was a little too pretty. Lol.
Bravotv.com: What was your first impression of Johnny Eyelash and crew? How do they rate in terms of guests you've seen before?
KH: Oh Gosh, my first impression of Johnny Eyelash and his crew was that they would be a fun group of guests to have on board. They were gay, friendly, and ready to party, and brought a ton of women's high heels with them. Although, I found it very odd that Johnny Eyelash was wearing a head-to-toe robe made for cold weather,that was so soiled. That was very strange. They came across as a very crazy, yet fun, group of charter guests.
Bravotv.com: What went through your mind when you found the white powder in the guest's bathroom? Has something like this ever happened to you before?
KH: When I first came across the white powder in the bathroom I wasn't actually that surprised. At that point, it was late in the evening, and the guests were still up with lots of energy. I was surprised, however, that they would leave it out in the open. That was very dumb on their part.
Bravotv.com: Did you ever consider not telling Adrienne what you found? How did you ultimately make your decision?
KH: To be honest, the only reason I told Adrienne was because she was my roommate, and therefore she was the only person I could talk to without anyone else around that night. She just happened to also be my Chief Stew. When I did tell her, I had no idea what the outcome would be. I wasn't even sure if she would say anything about it to the captain, but I had no idea that the captain would ultimately cancel the charter.
