Below Deck alums Kate Chastain and Ben Robinson are back together. The two are cozying up on the couch and talking about the latest season of Below Deck Mediterranean. They will join other fan favorites from the previous season in the new season of Below Deck Mediterranean Galley Talk.
On Tuesday, July 27, Bravo took to social media to make the surprise announcement. Fans have been wondering if Galley Talk will make a comeback. They’re looking forward to seeing how their favorite crew members will react to the crazy new season. Fans are especially interested in seeing their reaction to some of the drama that’s already playing out.
Kate Chastain, Ben Robinson return to Galley Talk
These Below Deck alumni are making a comeback. Bravo made no secret about it on social media. The network took to Instagram and Twitter to make the surprise announcement. Chef Ben Robinson was on Seasons 1 to 4 of Below Deck and Seasons and 4 of Below Deck Mediterranean. Meanwhile, Kate Chastain appeared on Below Deck Seasons 2 to 7.
In February 2020, she announced her departure from the series. Kate quit the yachting life and has not looked back. Ben prefers cooking on land rather than at sea. He seemed a little frazzled getting back on a yacht on Season 4 of Below Deck Med.
