Kate Chastain has put an end to any talk that she would return to Below Deck.
The 40-year-old was the original Bravo series’ head stewardess for six years before leaving at the conclusion of season seven.
She has now gone on to steal the show on Traitors US and just debuted Couch Talk, an epic show with former co-star Captain Lee Rosbach.
Fans, however, have been clamouring for the actress to return to the seven seas in any form, something Kate has stated she would never do.
During a Q&A session on Watch What Happens Live, she was asked: ‘If there was ever an All-Star season of Below Deck, would you join or has that ship sailed?’
‘I love a nautical pun,’ she joked. ‘That ship has sailed. There’s no way I’m going to wear a skort again. It’s not going to happen.’
Andy Cohen, the show’s host, asked if she would ever consider working under Captain Jason Chambers, who is presently in command of the ship on the Below Deck Down Under spin-off.
‘That would be way too distracting, absolutely [not],’ Kate replied, without missing a beat. ‘Could you work with him on a daily basis? No! That would be way too much!’
Chef Tzarina Mace-Ralph said during the second season of Below Deck Down Under that Captain Jason was a major distraction in the kitchen.
The gourmand couldn’t help but compliment her employer, saying, ‘Jesus, that man… God spent an extra three days on that one.
‘He’s so distracting. He doesn’t even need to speak, he just walks in the room and you’re like, “Well, that’s me stopping everything I’m doing”.
‘I couldn’t look him in the eye half the time. He’s just an incredible man to be around. He definitely has this king aura about him as soon as he steps into the room.’
Captain Lee appears to have some competition for the title of Stud of the Sea…
