The Below Deck boss recently made it very clear that Kate is the only chief stew he wants to work alongside while coming to her defense as she received some criticism from fans on Twitter Tuesday. When one fan seemed to age shame and comment on Kate's appearance, Captain Lee shut it down real quick, saying that he took "exception" to the fan's opinion. "It's the quality and if you can get class, culture, and breeding in the same package as I have in @Kate_Chastain you take in and be thankful for it," Captain Lee tweeted. "I know a lot of Capt's that would love to have her."
Of course, Kate was incredibly touched to receive all that love from Captain Lee. "Awww captain lee, that was very kind of you," she tweeted to him.
We imagine that experiencing all of the ups and downs of five seasons of Below Deck has had a way of bonding Captain Lee and Kate over the years. Indeed, Captain Lee and Kate have been known to show their support for one another not only on social media but also in real life. Why, Kate is even tight with Captain Lee's wife Mary Anne! Yes, these crew members seem more like family to us, and we are here for it.
We have a feeling that the upcoming Season 6 of Below Deck, which sets sail on Tuesday, October 2 at 9/8c, will bring Captain Lee and Kate even closer, given how intense it looks and all. See what we mean, below.
