Captain Lee Rosbach's Son Is Also a Yachtie
Being a Stud of the Sea apparently runs in the #BelowDeck boss' family.
Captain Lee Rosbach isn't the only Stud of the Sea in his family. The Below Deck boss' son Sean is currently working as a chef on a superyacht.
But Captain Lee said that he can't take full credit for his son wanting a life on the high seas. "Yeah, probably to a degree, I may have inspired him to get into the yachting industry," he recently told The Daily Dish (clip above). "But then there's also the seductive nature of the business that we're in: exotic locations, lots of money, and you get to rub shoulders with some of the brightest and best people in the world."
So does Captain Lee think Sean is anything like his fellow yacht chef Ben Robinson? "In some respects, yeah," he said. "If you tell him you don't particularly like a dish, it's like, 'What's wrong with you? You must have something wrong with your palette. How could you possibly not like something I fixed?'"
But as someone who works closely with chefs while on charter, Below Deck chief stew Kate Chastain said that just comes with the territory. "All chefs are crazy, in my experience. They all have personalities as flavored as their dishes," she explained. "They're artists, they're divas. They work in hot, stressful, environments, the kitchen, and so their tempers flare up a lot."
Captain Lee agreed that it's not always easy working with yacht chefs since they often try to place the blame on the chief stew when things go wrong. "Or it's something I did," he said. "My soufflé fell, the captain's fault."
Well, now we're just dying to know what dinnertime at the Rosbach household is like. Hopefully, it's smoother sailing than during this not-so-tasty Below Deck moment.
