In case you needed any further proof of just how small the world of yachting is, Kate Chastain previously revealed that she worked on a yacht with current Below Deck chef Rachel Hargrove back in 2013.

How to Watch

Watch Below Deck on Bravo Mondays at 9/8c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

During Rachel's inaugural appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on December 7, she spilled the tea about what it was really like to work with the former Below Deck chief stew back then. "It was great. She's got a very dry sense of humor, and I've got my saltiness, as you just put it [laughs]," Rachel told host Andy Cohen. "So together, it was dynamic, it was fun, and we kept our boss entertained as well."

Rachel also confirmed that she and Kate are still in touch today. In fact, Kate couldn't help but send her love to Rachel on Twitter after the chef made her WWHL debut. "I’m so glad to finally see @HargroveRachel doing her thing on #BelowDeck," Kate tweeted.

Kate, who currently co-hosts Bravo's Chat Room, previously shared during an Instagram Live chat with WALT Wines in October that she and Rachel even watched Season 1 of Below Deck together during that past yachting gig in 2013. The Below Deck alum even said that Rachel is now one of her favorite chefs to have ever appeared on the series. "She is so intelligent," Kate said of Rachel. "You guys are gonna love her. She's hilarious, extremely talented."
