Where are Shaan and Dillon Patel now? 'Family Karma' stars turn over a new leaf after leaving Bravo show
MIAMI, FLORIDA: If you tuned in to season 3 of 'Family Karma', you may have noticed two familiar faces missing from the Bravo show- the Patel brothers aka Shaan and Dillon Patel. Aside from their flamboyant and over-the-top Patel Compound filled with life-sized statues of the Patel clan, the brothers managed to ruffle quite a few feathers as they locked horns with their co-star Vishal Parvani.
Season 2 of 'Family Karma' ended on a tense note with hands being thrown and even the aunties getting involved in the fight between the Patel brothers and Vishal. So, if you were hoping to see if the Parvanis and Patels managed to bury their hatchet or still continuing their feud on the latest season of the Bravo show, then you may be in for some disappointment as Shaan and Dillon seem to have left the show. If you're curious to know what Shaan and Dillon have been up to since we last saw them on our screens, then keep reading.
Where are 'Family Karma' stars Shaan and Dillon Patel now?
Shaan tied the knot to his longtime girlfriend Pooja in a civil ceremony on April 3, 2022, at the Pérez Art Museum in Miami. It was officiated by the mayor of Miami-Dade County, Daniella Levine Cava. The reality star took to his Instagram to announce that the couple would have another elaborate wedding ceremony to celebrate their union. "We couldn’t wait 🤍 When it came to our civil (legal) wedding, we had no clue what to do. We have a big family wedding coming in May out of the country, so we decided to do something small, intimate, and secret. Big thanks to @mayordlc for indulging us and officiating. Also to @vanessaandjohnny for accommodating this last minute and for the beautiful photos. Finally, to my beautiful WIFE 👰🏽♀️ @pooj.01. I vow to forever be your home 🏡 #wedding #elopement #miami #dogs."
The couple tied the knot again in a lavish destination wedding held on a beach in the Dominican Republic on May 28, 2022, in the company of their close family and friends. Since then Shaan has regularly posted little snippets from his wedding on his social media alongside his work-related realtor content.
Just like his older brother Shaan, Dillon too has been hitting some major milestones in his personal and professional life since we last him locking horns with Vishal on 'Family Karma'. The Duke University alum was working as a Senior Manager of Global Operations at Zendesk when we saw him on 'Family Karma'. During his time at the tech company, Dillon actively took part in launching several groundbreaking inclusivity programs at the firm, including launching the Pride mentorship program, to advocate for LGBTQ employees. His strong advocacy initiatives within the company earned him a full-ride scholarship to Wharton's MBA program. Dillon bagged the coveted Prism Fellowship, which was established in 2019 by Jeffrey Schoenfeld. The Prism Fellowship awards a full-tuition scholarship to one MBA student who demonstrates leadership in support of the LGBTQ+ community.
"I'm a Duke-alum who began my career in consulting (Technology M&A @ PwC San Francisco) then worked at the CRM Software Company, Zendesk- where I worked across several functional areas (BizOps, GTM Strategy, & Product Strategy) in helping to grow the company from $400M to over $1B in annual revenue over my 3+ year tenure. Currently, I'm pursuing my MBA at the Wharton School ('23) as the second-ever recipient of the full-tuition Prism Fellowship," he shared on his LinkedIn profile.
In an interview with Poets & Quants, Dillon revealed that he's "hoping to lead a strategy and operations team at a large enterprise technology company and explore the entrepreneurial route" after finishing his MBA.
'Family Karma' Season 3 premieres on Sunday, Nov. 6 at 9 pm ET/PT on Bravo.
