SAINT LUCIA: The sight of Stud of the Sea aka Captain Lee Rosbach looking frail and announcing to the crew of St David that he has an important announcement to make, followed by the entire crew dropping their heads and crying in the season 10 trailer of 'Below Deck' released by Bravo left fans questioning if he was leaving the franchise?

The trailer added fuel to rumors about Captain Sandy briefly stepping in for Captain Lee while filming for the Bravo show. So, does this mean that Season 10 will be Captain Lee's swan song? Read on to know more.

In an interview with E! News, Lee quashed rumors of his exit by declaring "retirement is highly overrated." He also dropped hints about the upcoming season featuring "one of the biggest moments in Below Deck history." "You will see me do something that you've never seen me do in the past not in my private life or my yachting life have I ever done this before," he said. The Bravolebrity admitted he does have an undisclosed "issue," making this season's charters particularly difficult, but that doesn't mean Lee is giving up the captain's chair so easily.

"I think retirement is highly overrated," he said, adding, "You can only go fishing so much, you can only play so much golf. I think people have to stay productive, otherwise they might as well start getting out the shovel." Regardless, Lee claimed he hasn't grown tired of the 'Below Deck' experience even after being on it for almost a decade. "I'm still having fun," he continued. "I look forward to every season. I always said when it stops being fun or everyone gets tired of looking at me, then I'll step away. But until one of those two things happen, I don't see myself going anywhere."

Former chief stew and Captain Lee's close friend Kate Chastain too backed his claims on Brandi Glanville's 'Unfiltered' podcast. She said, "He’s always coming back. Captain Lee will probably be on Below Deck for as long as the show is on. There is a saying that every good captain goes down with the ship and metaphorically Captain Lee would do that. Coming up on the new season of Below Deck – airing this fall on Bravo – there is a change that happens, that has never happened before in prior seasons." She concluded by stating, "Captain Lee may or may not be the captain some of the time." Looks like we'll just have to watch the season to find out the "biggest moment" in the show's history.

'Below Deck' Season 10 premieres on Monday, November 21, at 8 p.m. on Bravo.
