Bravo’s Below Deck Adventure is a spin-off of the Below Deck series. The new program will premiere on Tuesday, November 1, 2022, at 9:00 p.m. ET. Michael Gilman will join the cast of Below Deck Adventure Season 1 as a member of the deck crew, commanded by bosun Lewis Lupton. Michael’s first experience on camera, as well as his first time working aboard a motor boat, is in a reality TV program. The deckhand, who was from Long Island, was going to study computer technology. However, his profile on the Bravo website indicated that he chose a life at sea over a career in computer technology.
According to the profile:
“A Long Island native, Mike Gilman abandoned his computer science studies to pursue a life at sea.” Mike starts at Mercury as a green deckhand with experience working on commercial boats, eager to learn about the world of yachting.”
Michael Gilman of Below Deck Adventure is a merchant mariner.
Michael Gilman did not pursue a career in yachting from the start. He is a commercial mariner who trained as a platoon leader and chief supply officer at the State University of New York Maritime College. Michael is presently the third mate in the International Organization of Masters, Mates, and Pilots, according to his LinkedIn profile. He has a “Unlimited 3rd Mate’s License” from the United States Coast Guard.
Michael’s employment history also includes:
Customer service representative at Brinco Mechanical Management Services, Long Island Sports Complexine cook and prep cook at the University of Buffalo Campus Dining and Shops.
According to his LinkedIn profile, he is:
“A dynamic, ambitious, and devoted recent Magna Cum Laude graduate of SUNY Maritime College with a US Coast Guard Unlimited Tonnage 3rd Mate License.”
According to his Instagram, Michael enjoys traveling and spending time with friends. Will he mix with the cast of Below Deck Adventure? Time will only tell. Whether he makes friends aboard the boat or not, he will undoubtedly experience difficulty in carrying out his responsibilities. Michael’s Bravo bio alluded to his difficulties in the program. It says:
“While he enjoys the ocean and travel, he finds it difficult to keep up with the demands of a motor boat.” Mike must determine if the “white boat” life is for him in the face of pressure from his deck crew and inter-departmental conflict.”
Michael seemed to be trying to keep up with the workload and pressure in the show’s promo.
