Right from the very first episode of the season, Kate seemed to take an immediate liking to deckhand Colin Macy-O'Toole. She tweeted that she thinks "he's just darling." The fact that he bares a resemblance to comedic actor Rob Huebel, according to Kate, doesn't hurt, either.
But it sounds like Colin's birthday rap in Tuesday night's episode of Below Deck Med really stole Kate's heart. "OMG please can I adopt Colin from #BelowDeckMed," Kate gushed on Twitter during the episode. "Cutest. Of. All. Time."
Kate also called Colin "adorbs" on Twitter and expressed her hope that he remains on Below Deck Med forever.
The Below Deck chief stew recently got some major props herself from Below Deck Med's Captain Sandy Yawn. "She's a wonderful person. And I get to hear what she did before [Below Deck]. And I was wicked impressed," Captain Sandy recently told The Daily Dish about meeting Kate in Florida in January. "And her level of service I pay attention to. Kate's very good at service. She's excellent. You can tell she cares about service."
Of course, Kate has long been a fan of her Below Deck Med counterpart Hannah Ferrier, and the two became fast friends. After hours spent talking on the phone, they finally met face-to-face when Hannah appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen earlier this month.
