Captain Lee Rosbach recently opened up about who is a favourite Under deck charter guest, but also which chef served him the worst meal.
First Officer Eddie Lucas and Deckhand Colin Macy-O’Toole performed during a Stars Marketing Group event in Stamford, Connecticut Below deck Mediterranean joined Rosbach on stage and the trio got the audience rolling.
Stars Marketing Group CEO Gabriella Schwager told Showbiz Cheat Sheet that the evening was full of fun. “We all had so much fun at the Palace Theater in Stamford, Connecticut,” she said.
Rosbach fondly remembered Leigh Anne and Sean Tuohy, the inspiration behind the film The blind side as the most popular charter guests of all time. It’s not the first time Rosbach has named the Tuohys as favourites. Rosbach said the couple was his favorite during another Stars marketing event in January 2020.
But this time he also dished why chef Kevin Dobson under deck Season 7 served him the worst food, calling it “the food I never got.”
Captain Lee’s Favorite ‘Below Deck’ Season 5 Charter Guests Were ‘The Biggest Couple’
Rosbach seemed tickled that Leigh Anne referred to her husband as “Seanie.” Laughing: “And he just hated that.”
“They were among the best charter guests,” Rosbach recalls. “And they were just the most amazing couple.” At Rosbach’s final performance, he said the Tuohys were “so much fun,” he said. “They just had a zest for life. And they just wanted to have a good time!”
Rosbach has also felt a lot of love for his sidekick Steve “Foam Man” Bradley. During the last event, Rosbach admitted that Bradley often robbed him of his money when he was a Under deck charter guest. But he added that Bradley just wanted to have fun. “Is he a bit over the top?” Rosbach wondered during the 2020 event. “You know, you could say that. But he doesn’t want to harm anyone in the world. And I’ve known Steve for a while. And if you see him from the Under deck context, it’s completely different.”
Which chef made Captain Lee his most disliked meal?
Luckily the Tuohys weren’t on Under deck when Rosbach had what he considered his “least favorite” meal on the show. Rosbach recalled that the worst meal he had on the show was when Dobson forgot that Rosbach would be dining with the guests and not making enough food.

Instead of reconfiguring the portions, Rosbach left out some of the menu courses. “For me it was Kevin,” Rosbach recalls. “That was the meal I never got. Kevin ate my food. When it came time to serve the entree, it was like… ‘Oh, I ate Captain Lee’s entree. So he just has to do without.’”
Lucas wondered if Dobson Rosbach had made anything other than appetizers. “He didn’t do anything to me. He just let my ass hang in the wind. I sit and watch everyone eat their dinner and I have nothing. I didn’t even get the appetizer.”
Lucas asked: “He didn’t last long did he? Rosbach replied, “No,” which made Lucas laugh.
He tweeted about Chef Kevin during the missed meal episode
Dobson was not fired, but he did not return as a chef for anyone else Under deck Season. So what happened? Rosbach sat at the table with the guests and Dobson, miscounting the guests, decided to try one of the appetizers to make sure the food was okay. Noticing that Rosbach was sitting at the table and he didn’t have enough to eat, he shrugged.
Chef Stew Kate Chastain wasn’t amused. “He forgot an entire entree for the captain,” Chastain said in a confessional. “For a chef that headstrong, he gave his boss his mistake on a silver platter.”
Rosbach also pulled Dobson on Twitter during the episode. “Oh, I don’t get an entree, I get the side. Where who wrote. “Really. The same chef who turned his back on me and left. Oh, that was the extravagance without the vaganza.”
Fans who missed the Stamford event can catch up with the trio in 2023. Looking for the perfect Christmas present for the Under deck fan in your life?
