Who is Chef Nick Tatlock?

Chef Nick Tatlock was introduced during Below Deck Season 11, Episode 13, where he opened up about his culinary background and also gave viewers a taste of his "harmless crazy" personality.

"I’ve been a chef for 22 years. I think I lost my mind a long time ago," Nick teased in a confessional. 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."

He seemingly captured the attention of female audiences online, who were impressed by his good looks and older age as Nick revealed he was 40. "Yachting is something that keeps me youthful," he said.

Unlike Chef Anthony, Chef Nick seemed to have more experience working on a yacht. “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," Captain Kerry told Chef Nick.

And from Nick's Instagram, you can see that he's been living the yachtie life for some time. However, very little is known about his personal life as he always seems to be working aboard. It's currently unknown if he is married or has any kids.

Captain Kerry already seems unhappy with Chef Nick.

Captain Kerry told Nick that the chef before him was fired because he "wasn’t reading the preference sheets properly." Given that Nick is now replacing him, it would make sense for him to make sure that he knows the preference sheets like the back of his hand.

But upon making his first lunch for guests, Nick already appeared to have slipped up and Captain Kerry was not pleased.

The guests requested octopus nachos, which Nick did cater to. However, they also requested that their lunch be "a seafood spread," and Nick underdelivered big time.

When Captain Kerry saw Nick's meager seafood spread, he asked if there was more coming out, reiterating that the guests had asked for it on their preference sheets. Nick got back to work, but Captain Kerry already seemed peeved.

"Here we go again," he said in a confessional. "I was very clear to Nick when I met him to read the preference sheet. How hard can it be? It says, 'seafood lunch.' He only has one seafood item. Are you kidding me?"

Fortunately, Nick was able to whip up some seared scallops and received positive feedback from guests, which ultimately earned him back some points with Captain Kerry.

But if he plans to stay on the St. David for the rest of the season, he'll have to prove to the captain that he's capable of doing his job and following those preference sheets, or else he could end up just like Anthony.

Below Deck airs on Bravo on Mondays at 9 p.m. ET. New episodes will stream the next day on Peacock.
