'Below Deck' Star Captain Lee Says He Won't Work With Ashton Pienaar Again

Caitlin Albers

It's been a rough season for bosun Ashton Pienaar on Season 7 of Below Deck. Not only did his managerial style come into question from fellow crew members and viewers, but his treatment of women has had him on blast in the last several weeks.

The two-season Bravo star was mostly well-liked for his first appearance on the show, where he almost lost his life after being dragged into the sea by a rope. His Season 2 promotion saw him in charge of the deck crew which included Brian de Saint Pern, Rhylee Gerber, Tanner Sterback, and Abbi Murphy.

Ashton's behavior has been so abhorrent that even the "Stud of the Sea," Captain Lee Rosbach, is admitting he will never work with the bosun again. Captain Lee and Chief Stew Kate Chastain appeared on SiriusXM's The Jenny McCarthy Show to discuss the season's events, and a lot of the discussion revolved around Ashton's actions towards women, most notably Kate.

"Do you give him another chance?" Jenny asked the duo.

"I wouldn't, no," Captain Lee responded. "I wouldn't give him another chance."

Kate added on to her captain's sentiments by saying she didn't feel like Ashton is really sorry for any of his actions this season.

For now, it's unknown if there will be a Below Deck Season 7 reunion since several past seasons have gone without one before.

Below Deck airs every Monday night at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
