Who’s ready for rough waters? Below Deck Season 4 premieres tonight and our favorite, ornery chef, Ben Robinson, says due to his back-to-back seasons on two different yachts we will see a “more cranky” version of himself.
Ben told The Daily Dish about “being thrown into the fire” when he joined his castmates on the Valor.
“It’s a lot. I mean, I think I was just kind of on a rollercoaster ride when I showed up. I think I had a lot more momentum behind me,” he said, adding that “If you do one season a year, you kind of gather yourself again. I was just thrown straight into the fire again. It was different.”
Captain Lee thinks Below Deck Mediterranean may have affected Ben’s latitude attitude.
“I was probably a little more cranky maybe, yeah,” Ben agreed. “They were both very tough. I survived, I guess. It’s good. It was fun.”
So did Captain Lee watch the Mediterranean spin-off? You bet he did. And he was surprised by some of Ben’s antics.
“Some things I expected out of Ben, but he surprised me in a couple of areas. Who I thought would spark or pique his romantic interest didn’t really,” Captain Lee revealed. “I didn’t see the Tiffany thing coming at all. That was just out of the blue.”
Ben said he didn’t expect to hook-up with Tiffany Copeland in the season finale of Below Deck Med, either.
“Tiffany and I are fine. We’re good friends. It’s all good,” he said. “I think we’re not really gonna jump into a relationship or anything, but we had fun, and it was a good time.”
Tune in for the OG Below Deck tonight on Bravo at 9:00pm ET. Watch a sneak peek of the rough waters ahead, above.
