Long-time fans may remember that in January 2020, during Below Deck’s 100th episode special, Ben revealed he was dating someone special. However, he kept Kiara’s identity under wraps at the time. He told Andy Cohen, “There is a girl that I like at the moment. We’re trying to take it slowly. So, we’ll see what becomes of it. But she’s a friend, and we’re having a good time together.”
Well, it seems taking things slow paid off, as the couple’s love has only grown stronger over the years.

Ben Robinson has been a fan favorite on Bravo’s Below Deck since 2013, and later joined the cast of Below Deck Mediterranean in 2019. His culinary skills, charming personality, and British wit have made him a beloved figure on the show.
However, life on reality TV isn’t always smooth sailing. Ben was hired by Captain Sandy Yawn to replace Anastasia Surmava after a controversial stint on the series. Despite the drama, Ben has managed to keep his love life separate from the show, allowing him and Kiara to nurture their relationship away from the public eye.
