Below Deck season 7 appeared to be one shock after one other for Captain Lee Rosbach. While he knew the crew was feuding, he admitted later he had no concept how dangerous the toxicity grew to become.

He’s blogged in regards to the incidents as they air, however the closing aggressive act in opposition to chief stew Kate Chastain could have been the final straw for Rosbach. He realized that chef Kevin Dobson kicked sand in Chastain’s face throughout their final outing on an island in Thailand. And he appears nothing wanting being utterly accomplished.

The guys had enjoyable (the ladies didn’t)

While deckhands Tanner Sterback and Brian de Saint Pern insist the island social gathering was a blast, stew Courtney Skippon and Chastain mentioned it was the final place they needed to be. “Honestly?” deckhand Rhylee Gerber says. “I mean, I don’t care about these people so the last place I want to be is stuck on a deserted island with them?”

The guys recall that chef Kevin Dobson was extraordinarily intoxicated. Cameras seize Dobson attempting to string collectively a sentence however can solely produce gibberish. “Like he couldn’t even walk,” de Saint Pern remembers. Sterback all of a sudden remembers that Dobson mentioned “something mean” to Chastain. Even de Saint Pern couldn’t recall what he mentioned.

Chastain had no bother recalling the remark. “First he’s like, ‘Let’s take shots together!’ I’m like, ‘OK, great.’” But then she says he all of a sudden tells her he doesn’t like her, which utterly modified the temper.

And right here comes the sand

Rosbach appears to be like disturbed listening to Chastain recount the night. “He said that to you?” Rosbach asks wanting indignant. But Chastain says she returned with telling Dobson she didn’t like him both. She ended up telling him Dobson wasn’t a great yacht chef, however as an alternative extra of a baker.

“I was stuck on an island with a bunch of males that were not respectful of me the entire season,” she says. She shared what occurred with Rosbach, including that after she gave it again to Dobson she sat down in a chair within the sand. “And Kevin kicked sand in my eyes,” she says.

After Dobson kicked sand in Chastain’s common route, de Saint Pern shortly admonished him. But Dobson doesn’t actually keep in mind the incident. He first asks producers if it was captured on digicam. Producers roll the footage. “OK, yeah well then I did,” he says grinning. Bosun Ashton Pienaar sits close by and laughs hysterically.

But Chastain and Rosbach aren’t laughing. “I’m really astounded by that,” Rosbach says wanting involved. Dobson tries to rationalize what occurred however the transfer will be the closing straw for Rosbach. Gerber says that though Dobson kicked sand towards Chastain, she wasn’t completely positive he had some evil intent behind the motion.
