What Does Chef Ben Robinson Think of Kate Chastain's New Girlfriend?

The #BelowDeck chef reveals whether things ever got romantic with the chief stew during his #WWHL appearance.

Chef Ben on Kate Chastain’s Girlfriend

Chef Ben Robinson and Kate Chastain were one of our favorite will-they-or-won't-they couples on Below Deck. And stop the presses, because it sounds like they actually did. Well, sort of. "We were friends and sometimes it became beneficial when the weekend got out of hand. OK, I'm not gonna lie," Ben told a caller during Tuesday night's episode of Watch What Happens Live (clip above). "We were never in a relationship."

Now that Kate has a girlfriend, does Ben regret not taking their relationship to the next level? Not quite. "I'm happy for her. Big weight off my shoulders," he told the caller about Kate's new lady. 

Ben said he has even met Kate's girlfriend, and he's a big fan. "I have met Ro. She's a lovely girl," he said. "She's actually a pro athlete, soccer player, wonderful person. So I'm very happy."

In fact, Ben may have even played Cupid for these two. “Actually, I think I was hanging out with [Ben] in Fort Lauderdale when she started texting me, and I showed him a photo," Kate told The Daily Dish about her new relationship in January. "I was like, ‘I don’t know what’s going on, Ben, but I think this girl is coming onto me.’ And he looked at her and was like, ‘Wow, she’s gorgeous. Go for it.’ I actually have to give Ben a little credit.” 

And Kate was glad to hear that Ben had such kind words for her girlfriend on WWHL. "Awww @BenRobinsonChef ! I was watching @BravoWWHL  for you and loved hearing the sweet things you said about my girl," she tweeted Tuesday.


Well, they may not have their wedding officiated by Captain Lee Rosbach anytime soon, but we see Ben and Kate being besties for many years to come. 

That's more than we can say about some of the Below Deck Mediterranean yachties right now.
