The sexual tension between chef Adam Glick and chief stew Jenna MacGillivray has been taking over the first season of Below Deck Sailing Yacht. Aside from talking shit about the other crew members, these two are all abou the PDA, even though they haven’t actually hooked up yet.
Obviously, this isn’t gonna end well. And I doubt they’re gonna get sympathy from their co-stars when their attempt a boatmance goes south. Madison Stalker and Georgia Grobler do not think Jenna is a good leader or a nice person. Paget Berry and Ciara Duggan have their own relationship issues to focus on. Basically, it’s a matter of time until Adam and Jenna’s relationship destructs. In fact, Jenna and Adam get into a heated disagreement on tonight’s Below Deck Sailing Yacht episode.
Last night’s Below Deck Sailing Yacht featured the worst guests in Below Deck recorded history. AW-FUL! It’s like someone let a pack of Joe Giudice‘s illegitimate sons loose and told them whomever consumed the most alcohol wins an all-expense paid trip to The Bunny Ranch (followed by all you can eat french fries).
As if immature guests weren’t bad enough there is Jenna MacGillivray and Adam Glick behaving like teenagers. In the past there have been chefs and chief stews, or chief stews and bosuns together, but never have they been so unrestrained in their non-stop touching during work. Jenna’s crew also feels rejected because mommy has a new boyfriend. Madison Stalker and Georgia Grobler are bothered by Jenna choosing Adam over them (and work), leaving them to their own devices to be molested by guys, taken advantage of, and forced to fend for themselves at too young an age.
Below Deck Sailing Yacht is back tonight for an all-new episode. Parsifal crashes into a dock, which means that Paget Berry has to pick up the slack and get the deck crew into gear.
Tonight’s episode also brings some new charter guests. The crew will be subjected to a group of bros from Long Island. This means will be subject to a lot of overindulgences, chest-bumping, fist-pumping, and just some all-around “bro” behavior. Oh, an, of course, some incessant demands for the Parsifal crew.
On last night’s Below Deck Sailing Yacht Adam Glick and Jenna MacGillivray‘s relationship grew muuuuch closer while Paget Berry and Ciara Duggan drifted further apart. Seeing a baby on board must’ve made Paget fear the pressing threat of potential ginger babies all the more!
It’s midway through charter 3 and already the crew is falling apart. They’re at each other’s throats, either because like Adam and Jenna they’re trying to kiss it, or because the constant grind of ironing out whose responsibilities belong to whom is causing tensions. It seems that neither Paget nor Jenna are very effective at squashing these issues, namely becuase they seem distracted by personal situations. And then there is happy-go-lucky (but alone) Captain Glenn Shephard and his trusty first mate/engineer Byron Hissey to inject a much-needed dose of sarcasm into the ebb and flow of back-biting and bitching.
Last night’s Below Deck Sailing Yacht was all about coming for the weakest links. Poor little Parker McCown is just trying to be his bubbly self, but he really needs his mommy to hold his hand and tell him he’s OK. Since Mommy McCown’s not available Madison Stalker is filling in to hold Parker’s ego in a gentle embrace.
Yes, we’ve got another one of these Tanner Sterback-type baby boys this season, minus the lechery luckily. Also, instead of getting blackout wasted, Parker just sits in the corner and sulks.
Toga parties are supposed to turn any event into Animal House, but the most exciting thing that happens at this one is that Paget Berry, the first escapee of the Plath Family Cult, argues with Ciara Duggan about cleaning deck furniture. Wooooooow. Riveting. These two are so dull even their arguing isn’t exciting.
There is a brand new episode of the show Below Deck Sailing Yacht on tonight. Aside from the drama among the crew members, the boat itself causes some issues- tilting thanks to the wind. The interior crew members have to serve breakfast to the charter guests while the sail boat is on a full tilt.
On tonight’s episode, the crew members ddeal with a young charter guest- a newborn baby. Something tells me that we are going to hear a lot of crying tonight- and not just from the dramatic crew members.
I must say I am loving Below Deck Sailing Yacht, especially in contrast to the toxic cesspool of poop-smelling goo that was this season’s Below Deck. Sure, Adam Glick may have the flirting game of the SNL skit The Ladies Man, but at least he’s not sexually assaulting people, then blaming sand for existing at the same time he was suffering from drunken hurt feelings.
Also, I adore Captain Glenn Shephard. Only a man living on a 4-foot sailing yacht for the last decade, in a room the size of a can of beans would mispronounce vegan as “vaygan”. I just find him so charming and calm, and without ego. Yay Captain Glenn!
But now we must dive into Jenna MacGillivray‘s failed seduction of Adam. Which culminated in her passing out in a wet bathing suit after a hot tub make-out.
After reserving judgment last week, I’ve decided that I think I like Below Deck Sailing Yacht. It has all the elements of a disaster but set against beautiful scenery and a competent crew.
Take Paget Berry and Ciara Duggan for instance. Together since practically infancy, isolating themselves away on a sailing yacht in a wonky tripod of living with a parental figure who is also a friend and their boss, and cut off from people their age. And in comes the new crew and suddenly Paget overhears Georgia Grobler singing in the laundry (It’s like the Little Mermaid!) and remembers that other women exist. This might come as news to Ciara as well.
Now, Paget has the sex appeal of a boiled potato, and I think it’s mainly his hair which is flaxen-colored flaccidness that belongs on an 8-year-old Norwegian in 1987. Ciara also does flattening things with her hair, and it’s odd to see something so bushy also look so… flat. But we are not here to dismember the intricacies of Pagara’s hair (or are we?) – we are here to pick apart every other thing about their relationship!
