Kate Chastain has been spending time in her home state of Florida since the beginning of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, and is currently living in a long-term vacation rental. During the July 4 episode of The Daily Dish podcast, which you can listen to below, the Below Deck alum explained that although she’s been telling her friends and family to come stay with her, she was a little bit shocked when someone actually took her up on her offer with super short notice. 

“It’s someone you guys know,” Kate said. “It’s Chef Ben. And he gave me one day notice. He’s like, ‘Hey, babe, coincidentally someone in your town hired me for a private chef gig, so I guess I’m going to come visit you. I’m bringing my girlfriend, and do you mind if we bring her dog?”

Kate said she was totally cool with having Chef Ben and his girlfriend, Kiara, visit, but that it was a bit of a hassle to have to assemble a bed for them to stay in so quickly.  

“They were lovely, and it was so much fun, and it was so good to see them,” said Kate. “I actually love his girlfriend. Probably more than him. She’s gorgeous, she’s hilarious, she’s patient with him, which is a good match for him.” 

Kate also shared an update on her own dating life, when she explained that she recently dated a restauranteur. However, they’re no longer together “because he wanted to come visit me and visit the beach, but that was after he told me he thought he had COVID.” Yikes!
