Last night’s Below Deck Sailing Yacht was a battle for the most annoying egos. Starting with charter guest Lyndi, whose voice had a fabricated squeakiness I assume she thinks is cute and charming, but actually sounds like a five-year-old in Suzuki violin lessons. Then there was Adam Glick. Someone please just drop him in a barren wasteland, far from any females for the remainder of his days.
Lyndi is on this trip with her boyfriend Jesse, who she decidedly does not love. Maybe she did love him until she tasted Adam… Adam’s food that is. It’s probably that Lyndi mostly eschews calories, so being around the decadence of Adam’s cooking which contain *gasp* fat grams has her in a state of arousal.
After arguing with Jesse at dinner because she won’t stop openly hitting on Adam, Lyndi and her pal sneak down to the galley to harass him. Jenna MacGillivray is standing right there, watching as these OC wannabe Barbies throw themselves at him. Adam always seems like he smells like grease and fish – uck.
Last week, Below Deck Sailing Yacht viewers saw some female charter guests shamelessly lusting over chef Adam Glick. One of the women even did this in front of her significant other, completely disrespecting him. Of course, Adam’s non-girlfriend Jenna MacGillivray was envious.
This week, her jealousy intensifies. But, will she be able to play it cool and keep things professional in front of the guests? The whole crew’s tip is on the line, girl. Don’t blow it. In other Jenna and Adam news (ugh), Adam tries to pull off some romantic gesture for Jenna tonight. However, it doesn’t go so well. This is a surprise to no one since pretty much zero fans see the potential in this pairing.
Last night on Below Deck Sailing Yacht we lost one crew member and gained a new one. I stand by my stance that Parker McCown is appalling. He has no respect for authority, plus his over-confidence and arrogance is so typical white male privilege. He’s like Gordon Gekko of the high seas.
In a meeting with Captain Glenn Shephard and Paget Berry about whether or not he should be fired, Parker yells at the Captain, argues that he’s being stressed out, then decides to flip this whole firing thing into him resigning because that’s how positive people handle problems. Plus he doesn’t like to be around people who don’t love him. Parker does realize he was gonna be fired anyway, right?
Parker’s real problem is that he doesn’t want to work. He wants to blow all his tip money proposing to the ex-girlfriend, Kati, who dumped him a couple months ago because she wanted to sleep with other guys, then begged him back when she saw a free trip to Greece and the opportunity to be on TV.
Below Deck Sailing Yacht is back tonight for an all-new episode. This time, the cast has to cater to charter guests who are social media influencers. Oh, boy. Who isn’t a social media influencer these days? I’m already feeling my eyes start to roll.
Apparently, someone in this group upsets Jenna MacGillivray. Could that be the same person who has been flirting it up with Adam Glick? Meanwhile, this woman is on charter with her boyfriend, who feels angry and disrespected by his girlfriend openly lusting after Adam on a reality TV show.
Oh, the men on Below Deck strike again. This franchise is cursed by toxic, ridiculous men, isn’t it? And Below Deck Sailing Yacht proves to be no exception! Last night’s chief offenders where Adam Glick (duh) and Parker McCown who has the emotional reserves of a toddler and the coping skills of a drunk frat boy being told the keg is empty.
Well, at least the charter guests were lovely! Both to look at and interact with. Maisa, the primary, is a scout for Playboy Slovenia which sounds like the type of job one has as a glorified yacht girl turned trophy wife. Still Maisa was polite and charming. Most of the guests this season have been great – and even those who sucked as people were at least good tippers. Maybe sail boats put people in better moods than motor yachts?
Adam has his manties in a twist because it turns out that Jenna MacGillivray and Georgia Grobler have a shared ex-boyfriend named Johan. Jenna dated him for a couple months and finds this random connection hilarious. Her current boyfriend Adam — not so much. Adam literally rips Georgia a new one for making a joke about it. Georiga is visibly shaken as she tells Jenna about Adam’s reaction.
As we are all aware, we are living in some tough times these days. At least, we have some entertaining TV shows to watch while we are social distancing and staying safe in our homes.
As a result of the coronavirus outbreak, Watch What Happens Live has been filming new episodes via video chat. Andy Cohen hosts from the safety of his New York City apartment. And different guests video chat in from wherever they are. Although it’s great to see the stars glammed up with pounds of hair extensions and self-tanner, this filming from home thing definitely has some advantages. For instance, there are no travel schedules to consider. This means that it is possible to have premium guests every single night.
Below Deck Sailing Yacht is back tonight with a brand new episode. Captain Glenn Shepard has been calm, cool, and collected this whole charter season. However, his frustration with Parker McCown has been growing by the second.
Tonight, Captain Glenn warns Parker to get it together. Otherwise, he’s off the boat. He tells Parker, “Whether you stay on this boat beyond tomorrow or not is completely up to you.” Parker isn’t the best at his job, but it’s so hard to like most of the people in this cast. They cannot get rid of one of the few likable cast members.
Compared to other iterations of the franchise, the first season of Below Deck Sailing Yacht has been relatively smooth sailing so far. Chef Adam Glick has garnered consistent praise Captain Glenn Shephard. All the charter guests have left with a smile on their face. Love is even in the air! At least for now.
From the first episode, we saw chief stew Jenna MacGillivray and Adam hit it off. What started off as friendly flirting quickly became one of the biggest storylines of the season. Some of the staff, namely Madison Stalker, are finding their relationship unprofessional as things heat up.
