This Charter Guest is Really into Captain Lee

Something special happens when Bravolebrities from different shows meet one another. Whether it's a chance encounter or a scheduled meet-up, it's akin to throwing a party, inviting all of your different friend groups, and discovering that not only does everyone get along, but they actually like each other and are now hanging out without you.

How to Watch

Catch up on Below Deck on Peacock or the Bravo App.

Captain Lee Rosbach of Below Deck and Tinsley Mortimer of The Real Housewives of New York had one such encounter, which was captured in a magical post on Instagram. On Tuesday's episode of After Deck with Kate Chastain, Kate asked Captain Lee about his experience meeting Tinsley. 

What are the odds, walking to an interview Mary Anne and I run into the beautiful @TinsleyMortimer, newest member of RHONYC. Lucky me.

"It was such a happenstance meeting," Captain Lee told Kate. "We're walking to the elevators and she came running up and she goes, 'I just have to have a picture.' And so we did!"

In true Stud of the Sea form, the Captain admitted he hadn't recognized Tinsley at first. "Some guys have all the luck," Kate teased. 

Despite his lapse in recognizing the RHONY star, he enjoyed the encounter and meeting Tinsley, "She's great! She's very personable. She's just cute as a button," Lee said. "My gosh, I was impressed and then it dawned on me who she was."

While imagining a yacht captain watching The Real Housewives may be as hard to picture as a NASCAR legend introducing his wife to all of his favorite Housewives seasons and series, Captain Lee does in fact watch Housewives and, like any Bravo fan, he has his favorites. "I like [Lisa] Vanderpump and I also like Don't Be Tardy," Lee said. "I think Kim [Kim Zolciak-Biermann] is great." He even recommended the show to Kate about a year ago. When asked what he loved about Kim, Captain Lee simply replied, "No filter."
