Fans wondered the reason why manufacturers performedn’t intervene whenever Ashton Pienaar from Below Deck became crazy and violent within the van trip back once again to the motorboat.
Pienaar became mad whenever main stew Kate Chastain inquired about their mom. The staff was consuming greatly that night and it also ended up being obvious everybody in the van ended up being very inebriated. However, Pienaar, whom rode in a van with Chastain, cook Kevin Dobson and Tanner Sterback lashed on and ended up punching the medial side associated with van’s interior. Dobson and Sterback finally needed to talk Pienaar down, nearly restraining the bosun from actually assaulting Chastain.
Chastain recently recounted the event whenever she showed up on Colin Macy-O’Toole’s podcast Radio Check. She resolved the concern as to what ended up being taking place behind the views. Plus provided where she really moved when she strolled from the motorboat.
She has been actually damaged if Dobson wasn’t within the van
Although Chastain remained literally safe, she desires the whole encounter could have already been taken care of differently. She stated the producer whom rode together with them within the van had not been authorized to split the 4th wall surface and intervene. However, the producer rapidly got regarding the radio to find out the thing that was the best action to take.
“I’m just really thankful in a weird way that I was in the van with Kevin,” she recounts. “Because if it had been Simone in the front seat, I think Ashton would have made it over to the backseat. And I don’t know what would have then happened.”
Chastain says whilst it’s difficult to say if Pienaar could have physically assaulted her she said he getting quite near. “It took quite a bit of Kevin holding him back,” she states. “I don’t know what his plan was once he got over that seat. But it didn’t seem like it was to talk to me at a closer proximity.”
She wishes production could have taken care of the specific situation differently
Chastain states the producer inside her van ended up being really making a “911” call to see just what ought to be done throughout the altercation. “Which they’ve never done before,” she adds “But we were out of range, so she didn’t want to do the wrong thing so we kept driving.”
“But I was surprised that when we got back to the marina, that we didn’t just pause the shooting, everybody separate, no cast members talk to each other,” Chastain continues. “Maybe take Ashton aside. I was surprised and disappointed that that did not happen. Because it almost seemed to me like they knew what Ashton had done, and by not taking him aside, and being like, ‘You can’t do that’ or anything, they were kind of enforcing his behavior as okay.” She thinks Pienaar ended up being more emboldened after no body from production resolved their behavior.
When Chastain remaining, she guaranteed followers that she ended up being safe. She states she understood a lot better than to roam the roads of Thailand. “There were nice yachts in that marina and there was a hotel that I knew of at the of the dock,” she states. “And I had a feeling I was going to be able to just go to that hotel.” She adds joking, “It was glamorous in that Kate disappeared to a four-star hotel bed with white fluffy sheets.”
