On season 4 of Below Deck, fans saw love blossom between Valor's Chef Ben Robinson, and the boat's second stew, Emily Warburton-Adams. It started with flowers on Valentine's Day, which led to a Caribbean first date, and the romance continued after the charter season with adorable posts on social media. As their relationship moved through the spring and into the summer, it seemed as though the dating longevity gods were smiling upon the couple. Sadly, nothing lasts forever. On the most recent episode of After Deck with Kate Chastain, Ben shared some news with Kate about the status of his relationship with Emily.
"I can't exactly exclaim that we're steady and dating at this point in time," Ben said on the podcast this week. "We just don't see each other enough to have a serious relationship."
Kate, who has been close to Ben for many Below Deck seasons, assured him that "timing is everything." Ben agreed and pointed to he and Emily being at different stages of their lives, currently.
"She's very ambitious. She's definitely a London girl, and you know that was a thing of my past," he explained. "I'm kind of allergic to big, metropolitan cities actually to be honest, now." Ben currently resides in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Despite the step back in their relationship, Ben made it clear that she is still very much an important part of his life. "You know, Emily and I, we're always going to have a special place in one another's hearts," he added. "So hopefully, we may be able to rekindle something in the future."
