Johnathan Shillingford On Below Deck

When Below Deck Mediterranean Season 9 premiered on Bravo on June 3, 2024, an accomplished cook Johnathan Shillingford joined the new crew members on the Mustique. On Below Deck Mediterranean Season 9, Jonathan has taken over as chef and is expected to contribute significantly with his culinary skills. That being said, this was not his intended career path. Despite having a long career as a boat chef, Jonathan disclosed on Instagram that he fell into the field by chance.

“It’s true y’all. About eight years ago I turned my passion for food into a profession, and pivoted my career to become a Culinary Architect: I build food!” Johnathan wrote. “I spent seven years getting a Masters in Architecture degree, and while I still do practice design for a select group of clients, being a yacht chef is my main job!”

Jonathan continued by saying that, eight years ago, he began by accepting a week-long temporary cooking job without any prior expertise. The position lasted for two years. He acknowledged that it can be challenging to value someone who has chosen an unusual path and urged his followers to believe in themselves and persist in achieving their goals.

Johnathan has seven years of experience in the yachting industry. The Tuamotu islands, which he refers to as “heaven on Earth,” and French Polynesia are two of his favorite destinations. The chef may be an expert chef, but he also has unique abilities in singing, dancing, designing, and pulling off a wide range of dialects.

Captain Sandy Yawn and former Below Deck Down Under Chief Stew Aesha Scott will serve as the show’s leaders. Following the rivalry between Natalya Scudder and Tumi Mhlongo in season 8, Below Deck Med required a makeover. Aesha was asked by Captain Sandy to save Below Deck Med, and it’s probable that her involvement will infuse season 9 with a more carefree vibe. There is a new group of franchise yachties in the Below Deck Med season 9 cast.

For season 9, the only characters from Below Deck returning are Elena Dubaich, Aesha, and Captain Sandy. Notably, Elena substituted for Kyle Viljoen during his brief debut in Below Deck Med season 7 because of his injury.

Since May 2013, Jonathan has been able to obtain practical experience in the sector by working as an intern architect at AgenceTER in Paris thanks to his Bachelor of Architecture degree. A GoFundMe was started for Johnathan so that he could get this further education.
