Meet The "Crazy" New Chef Replacing Anthony Iracane on Below Deck (VIDEO)

The new chef is replacing Anthony Iracane on the St. David.

By Jamontae Hickman

Following the “heartbreaking” departure of Anthony Iracane on Below Deck Season 11, the St. David crew officially welcomes their newest yacht mate, Chef Nick Tatlock. 

Who is the new chef on Below Deck?

Nick Tatlock is the newest staff member to join the crew on the St. David. The chef was hired by Captain Kerry Titheradge on the April 22 episode of Below Deck after reviewing various CVs of candidates and sending a text to the yacht services coordinator. 

"Hey, get that new chef on a plane ASAP," the message read. "He's hired."

On Below Deck's April 29 episode, Nick opened up about his work experience and witty personality, saying, “I’ve been a chef for 22 years. I think I lost my mind a long time ago. Maybe, I talk to myself too much, I have a few little ticks and go a little bit loopy sometimes, but I’m harmless crazy. You know, I’m not about to murder anyone.” 

How to Watch

Watch Below Deck on Bravo Mondays at 9/8c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

Meet Nick, the new chef on Season 11 of Below Deck replacing Anthony Iracane

During Nick's arrival to the St. David, deckhand Kyle Stillie was the first yachtie to spot him out. “Is this the chef?” Kyle yelled before Sunny Marquis announced on the walkie-talkie, “All crew, all crew: chef incoming.” 

Immediately, Bosun Ben Willoughby headed to the dock to greet the new chef. “I’m Nick. Nice to meet you,” the newbie crew member said.

After getting adjusted on the yacht, Nick made his way to the bridge to meet with Kerry, where he was informed of why he was hired and what is expected of him aboard.

“I had to let the last guy go… He wasn’t reading the preference sheets properly,” Kerry told Nick. “I’ve seen you been on some big boats, so I’m not here to teach you how to cook… Of course, work well with the interior team.”

How old is Chef Nick from Below Deck Season 11?

While Kerry seemed pleased with his new hire, Sunny, on the other hand, noticed one thing that was different about Nick than Anthony. 

While hanging out on the deck, Fraser Olender asked Sunny, Kyle, and Dylan Pierre De Villiers for their “first impressions” of the new chef. As for Sunny’s response? She said, “Old, older,” to which Fraser replied, “How old?” 

So what’s Nick’s age? Well, he admitted in an interview that he was “40” and that “yachting is something that keeps [him] youthful.”
