Real Name

Benjamin Robinson

He’s from Oxford, England.


Ben Robinson is currently single.

His ex-girlfriends include Ro Hernandez and Kiara Cabral.


Ben comes from a famous family.

His father is Patrick Robinson who is a famous British novelist and newspaper columnist.


Ben Robinson appeared on 6 seasons of Below Deck.

On the original Below Deck, he appeared on Seasons 1, 2, 3 and 4, and on Below Deck Med, he appeared on Seasons 3 and 4.

He’s now a regular on Below Deck Galley Talk alongside Kate Chastain.


Ben is a remarkable chef by trade and definitely caused some controversy on the show.


During the on-season, he’s in the Mediterranean or the Pacific.

During the off-season, he resides in England.

Past Cruising

Ben has had the luxury of visiting more than 30 countries during his career as a chef.

Starting Off

Ben didn’t start from the top. He became an apprentice chef but with a love for the ocean.

Through hard work, trial and error, he eventually turned a difficult career into a successful one and continues to visit the beaches of the world.

Net Worth

Many people are surprised by this…

As of 2023, Ben Robinson from Below Deck has a net worth of $760,000 USD.

This is based upon the value of his England home and car.

However, he’s rarely home to enjoy either of these!

Making Loot

His unique career has seen him earn a higher-than-average salary.

Ben Robinson of Below Deck typically earns around $95,000 during a cruising season, plus a royalty payment by the producers of around $50,000.

So that’s a 6-figure income while visiting some of the most beautiful countries in the world. 😎


I haven’t seen him do collaborations with cruising YouTubers at this time.

Big Moments

Ben’s had some wild moments on the show:

➜ He went to great lengths to buy some croissants

➜ He’s had some heated discussions with other crew

➜ Both him and Kate Chastain have had arguments

➜ He’s threatened to quit on multiple occasions

And yet, he made it through numerous seasons!

Future Plans

It’s unclear if Ben will buy his own boat and sail around the world, but I hope he does! He deserves his freedom on the open ocean.

Key Takeaways

What can we learn from Ben’s journey?

➜ Organisation is everything

➜ Stay sharp yet humble

➜ A strong work ethic is everything

➜ If you can’t handle the heat…


Ben’s a class act and I look forward to seeing him join during future seasons. It’s been so long and he’s a crowd favorite!
