While Hannah had a particularly hard season this year due to the criticism she got from Captain Sandy, many thought her friend and fellow seasoned Chief stew Kate Chastain would rush to her defense. In the end, it seems like the opposite as Kate seems to be #TeamSandy on this one.
Taking to Twitter, Kate defended Captain Sandy and even hinted that her relationship with Hannah had turned frosty. When a fan stated that Ben was sucking up to Captain Sandy this season, Kate hinted that she agreed that Hannah’s service was less than stellar by stating:
I wasn’t there Marci but I do know that both Ben and Sandy are excellent examples of yachting professionals with many years of experience and I trust their judgment. They weren’t upset the stews were getting along, they were upset it was at the cost of guest experience. https://t.co/JyI3IiBm2n

Kate went on to criticize the interiors for making a dig at Captain Sandy during the last episode. Sandy joins the crew for dinner asking about their pit and peak of the season. Most crew members had generally nice things to say but Aesha ended on a sour note by saying the interiors team deserved more praise. To that, Kate stated:
My mom used to make us play the same high/low game at dinner every night growing up and I’m just saying you’re supposed to start with the low so you end on a high note. My mom also has amazing table settings. #BelowDeckMed

When a fan asked about their current relationship, Kate hinted that Hannah had been talking behind her back which led to a decline in their friendship (this tweet has since been deleted.)
If that weren’t bad enough for Hannah, Chef Ben spoke out to BravoTV.com stating he feels reality TV has changed her and hinted he is much closer to Kate than Hannah. Ben states:
“In a personal setting, Kate is probably a little tougher on me because we’re very close, we’re both Capricorns, we know how to piss each other off. And it’s a lot of fun. Hannah, I think she tries to be tougher in the field with me and it’s not going to work for her, ever.”
However, Ben said of Hannah, “She’s a lot of fun. I do think reality TV does kind of change people a little bit. I think that it’s probably changed Hannah more than Kate.”
Ouch! Not sure Hannah is going to love hearing this from her yachting peers.
