Below Deck Sailing Yacht fans will meet a couple of new faces when season 4 premiers, including new chef Ileisha Dell. The highly-anticipated season 4 of Below Deck Sailing Yacht is only a few weeks away, and fans got a sneak peek into all the drama when the show’s trailer dropped recently. The trailer confirmed Captain Glenn Shephard would reprise his role alongside OG cast members — chief stew Daisy Kelliher, first mate Gary King, and Engineer Colin MacRae. However, the trailer also introduced three fresh faces with promises of new storylines as the crew sails the waters of Sardinia, Italy.
Meanwhile, the trailer also teased some sea drama showing the Parsifal III run into serious tidal waves, a near collision, and two epic engine failures. Fans also watched a scene showing a guest with a gruesome head injury. However, the trailer also teased fun and romantic drama besides the chaos. Judging by the scenes, things will get heated as strong personalities collide and messy love triangles spiral out of control.
Meanwhile, amidst all this chaos is the new chef on the boat, ILeisha Dell. The press release states, “Chef Ileisha’s cooking impresses the guests, but her indecisiveness and co-dependency lead to time-management issues between courses, which causes her to self-destruct.” This brief biography props up Ilesha as one to watch in the new season. However, before that premiers, here is all you need to know about her.
ILeisha Dell’s Age And Hometown
While new Below Deck Chef ILeisha Dell has several years of experience working in the yachting industry, and as a culinary chef, this would be her first feature on a reality TV show. Consequently, there is only a little information about her on the internet, except what she chooses to put out on her Instagram page. However, ILeisha is originally from a small beach town on the East coast of Australia. There, she nurtured her love for living and working on the water.
ILeisha Dell’s Career
ILeisha Dell has been living her dream as a yacht chef for nearly a decade — with her passion for traveling, cooking, living, and working on the water all coming into play. However, ILeisha has had to work her way through the ranks. She first proved her mettle by working as a pastry chef in some of Sydney’s top kitchens. At some point, she also worked as a prep chef for Matt Moran on his cooking show.
ILeisha’s resume also includes a two-year period in which she accompanied a prominent Aussie family on a tour of the Mediterranean while working as their private chef. She also worked as a personal chef for some of Sydney’s most famous households.
ILeisha Dell’s Instagram
ILeisha is very active on Instagram, where she has 1.4k followers. In her bio, she describes herself as a freelance private chef, yacht chef, and food lover. The reality star also uses her official Instagram page to promote her business profile @ileishadelleats. A quick look through her profile shows everything you need to know about ILeisha — she loves traveling, the sea, and cooking. Her Instagram feed is littered with pictures of her in several cities across the globe.
However, there is always great food and plenty of water wherever she finds herself. With her recent detour into reality TV with Below Deck, ILeisha would be looking to boost her social media followers while opening herself to other opportunities. And from all indications, she is well-equipped to make a lasting impression on Below Deck fans.
