During an exclusive interview with The Daily Dish, Aesha Scott opened up about Season 2 of Below Deck Down Under, detailing her close connection with Captain Jason Chambers in the process.

“He’s my captain, but he’s also my friend,” the chief stew shared in the interview that took place on July 6, adding how Jason was basically like her “fourth stew” on the boat. “He supports me so much. He’s always doing my dishes and emptying my bins. And I’m going up in the morning and putting his contacts in. We’re just a really supportive unit.” 

Wait… she’s doing what now?

ICYMI, in the Season 2 premiere, Jason called Aesha to his cabin as the crew was getting started on the day. “So jealous!” chef Tzarina Mace-Ralph hilariously exclaimed as Aesha made her way to the captain’s cabin. 

When she arrived, Jason was clearly disheveled as he was trying to put in his contacts, asking Aesha for help.

“Oh my god, I would love to… Are you serious?” she asked. 

“I’ve tried all morning!” Jason stressfully proclaimed.  

After bringing him out of the bathroom and telling him to “look straight ahead,” Aesha succeeded in getting the lens in his eye and the captain was ready for the first charter guests

Following the premiere, Aesha and Jason appeared on the July 24 episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen to dish about the season. During a game in which host Andy Cohen asked the yachties some tough questions, Aesha was tasked with revealing one of Jason’s “grossest” habits. 

“Well, I don’t know if it’s gross, but I think everyone can see he’s a grown man and he doesn’t know how to put contacts in,” she laughed. “So maybe we can work on self-growth?” 

“We need to talk about that contact lens thing,” Andy said. “I have never let someone put my contact lens[es] in my eyes. Can you just not do it, Jason?”

“I can’t do the left one! I can’t get up all around — ” Jason revealed, pantomiming his arms around the left side of his face. “I keep dropping them in the sink and… they’re expensive!” 

“And Aesha does it… for you?” Andy inquisitively went on. 

“I’m a capable woman, what can I say?” Aesha hilariously exclaimed. 

Yes, Aesha is still helping Jason put in his contacts

At the end of Season 2, Jason and Aesha joined each other in a confessional to reflect on the season and how they helped each other — in numerous, let's say interesting ways. 

"So, can you put your own contacts in now?" Aesha asked, as Jason replied, "Well...possibly." 

After making one unsuccessful attempt, Aesha did her duty to step in and help the captain again. As he held his right eye open, Aesha helped push the lens into his eye, laughing along the way. 

"I can still feel your finger nails," Jason joked as they both laughed. What will he do without Aesha?
