Madison Stalker and Jenna MacGillivray started the season of Below Deck Sailing Yacht on good terms. Madison’s professional ability was evident, and Jenna trusted her second stew’s performance. At some point, maybe due to exhaustion and her unrequited crush on Parker McCown, Madison started to express frustration and negativity towards her work and her boss.
Of course, Jenna didn’t help things by constantly complaining about Madison to her moody counterpart, Adam Glick. Maybe it was footage slicing, but Jenna seemed to make a beeline for the galley to complain the moment anything happened with Madison or Parker. The mid-season trailer indicates that the tensions will continue to escalate, maybe even to the point where someone is fired. Will Jenna and Madison be able to work things out?
Madison Stalker is definitely struggling both professionally and emotionally. According to her boss, Jenna MacGillivray, the Below Deck Sailing Yacht Second Stew has been under-performing at her job. Jenna suggests it’s a time management issue as Madison stays up into the wee hours in the hopes of running into crush Parker McCown. Unfortunately for Madison, he’s just not that into her. This epiphany is only going to fuel her negativity further.
Madison sees it as Jenna giving her brusque orders without managing the team well. Jenna also flirts with Chef Adam Glick CONSTANTLY. Their sexual innuendo permeates the boat, which leaves the rest of the crew feeling like they are interrupting something. Actually that question comes up a lot. It’s a small boat. The tension between Jenna and Madison came to a peak when Jenna expressed her frustrations to Captain Glenn Shephard .
Relationships went bang and fizzled on last night’s Below Deck Sailing Yacht. The good news is Jenna MacGillivray finally got her wish to f–ck Adam Glick! Cue a marching band to play in their honor. The bad news is Jenna also f–ked Georgia Grobler‘s ex-boyfriend, Johan. Yo, Johan, wherever you are we need a Below Deck cameo immediately! Identify yourself.
Also this is a cautionary tale of why you do not stalk ancient instagram photos of your ex. A) You might accidentally ‘like’ one of his 3,000 year old photos, thus outing yourself as a stalker. B) You might discover that your ex is also the ex of your current boss. Tres Awkward! Especially when current boss is now dating your other current boss, who is none too happy about the spit you swaped with previous companions.
And oh man is Georiga swapping the spit this episode!
Below Deck Sailing Yacht is back with a new episode tonight. And things are heating up. Of course, Chief Stew Jenna MacGillivray is still on Madison Stalker’s case for being “unprofessional.” That’s laughable considering that Jenna and Adam Glick are kissing and touching each other in the middle of the workday.
Parker McCown tries to be there for Madison, advising her to tell Jenna “to back the f*ck off.” Something tells me that approach would not go over well. At all. Plus, I doubt that Madison wants any advice from her crush who is super into his ex-girlfriend. Oh, and he invited her to visit.
Below Deck Sailing Yacht is the unrefined spinoff of its highly successful counterpart, Below Deck. Yes, the boat is beautiful, and yes any of us plebs would be lucky to charter it. But it’s hardly the same luxury experience that we’ve seen previously. It would interest a sailing enthusiast, and that’s certainly a reason to tune in.
The views are breathtaking, but the parties and excursions have been a little underwhelming. Crew drama is really what keeps us coming back for more. And this bunch is bickering and imploding. Madison Stalker and Parker McCown are mouthing off to their superiors which gives Chief Stew Jenna MacGillivray lots of fodder to then snark over with Chef Adam Glick. Tensions are building for sure, and will escalate into larger conflicts.
Ahhhh… we are midway through the charter season on Below Deck Sailing Yacht. As well known from previous iterations of Below Deck, this means a time of shifting loyalties, relationships beginning to either fray or cement, and crew-wide fatigue.
Over on the rockiest beach in the world, Jenna MacGillivray and Adam Glick arrive prepared to host a beach BBQ for the guests only to find what looks like a hoarder emptied their storage shed on the shore. What reality show is this?!
Ciara Duggan and Madison Stalker have been there for 4 hours but it might as well have been 4 years. They look like they just escaped a shipwreck and were required to use Madison’s bra as a fishing net. They are sweaty, burnt, hobbling around creatures surprised to recognize other forms of human life (or perhaps disappointed that those human lives were Adam and Jenna?). This is what being off the boat unsupervised does for a yachtie!
Now it’s T-30 minutes until the guests, dressed for dinner at the country club, arrive and nary an umbrella is unfolded. Jenna is in overdrive, panic mode. OK, seriously, what the eff was going on that island all day?
There is a new episode Below Deck Sailing Yacht on tonight. And it picks up right where last week’s episode left off. Madison Stalker and Ciara Duggan failed to set up a beach picnic for the charter guests. They did not seem remotely concerned that they got nothing done nor did they provide a reason for coming up short. With all of her sailboat experience, I expect more from Ciara.
Thankfully, Chef Adam Glick and Chief Stew Jenna MacGillivray show up to get things together before the guests show up. I don’t understand the disconnect between pleasing the guests and receiving a generous tip at the end of the charter. This should be pretty logical, but, apparently, that is not the case.
I have so many conflicting feelings about what’s going on with Below Deck Sailing Yacht. Like is everyone conspiring against Madison Stalker? Are Jenna MacGillivray and Adam Glick both psychotics who deserve each other? Is Parker McCown a secret serial killer, ala Patrick Bateman. I know it’s not popular but you guys — I just get a bad feeling about him. I mean, I basically get a bad feeling about everyone except for Captain Glenn Shephard and Byron Hissey. So maybe that’s the problem?
I definitely DO NOT have good feelings about the new Below Deck Sailing charter guest Yana, and her, um… diet and cat noises? Is her brain so deprived from lack of food she can’t form complete thoughts which is why she just says “meow”?
Jenna is crying on a dock after begging Adam to sleep with her. They’ve been ‘dating,’ in the loose manor of yacht dating, for the equivalency of 2 charters. Possibly 2 and a half. It is not. that. serious. Adam turns her down because he’s trying to retain some small vestige of professionalism (GO ADAM), and Jenna freaks out that he’s icing her out by putting up emotional walls. Jenna claims she just wants to get closer to him — so how about asking about his childhood, instead of using bumping uglies as a bandaid for actual intimacy. Seems a little… immature, no?
