And with many fans wondering how many more seasons the 73-year-old has in him, Lee admitted his future is uncertain at the moment.
“I don’t know what’s going to happen in the future,” he concluded, “but the ocean’s always going to be part of me. I still got the best goddamn job in the world.”
Longtime Chef Rachel Hargrove also revealed on the finale her plans to take a break after season 10. “It’s no longer fun anymore,” the 41-year-old admitted. “Yes, this is my life’s passion, but at the same time too I’m too old for this s–t. I just think I need a f–king break or something. I’m basically gonna leave yachting until I get completely bored and landlocked. But until then, bye.”
