The Below Deck Sailing Yacht crew are in love with Captain Glenn Shephard and stews Alli Dore and Dani Soares recently gushed about what it’s like to work for him.

Dore and Soares said Shephard is the only captain they’d want to work for during a recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. “I think it would be unanimous for everyone,” Dore explained. “We adore Glenn. We call Glenn our ‘Lord Savior.’ Yeah, he’s just amazing.”

‘Below Deck Sailing Yacht’ all love Captain Glenn

Dore explained why the crew is so in love with Shephard. “He creates this dynamic amongst the crew where you really, really respect him and all you want to do is do the best possible job possibly. Without being micromanaged by him. So he really takes a step back but we really give him 100%.”

Chef Natasha De Bourg also recently sang Shephard’s praises. “Oh my gosh, Captain Glenn!” she exclaimed on the Behind the Velvet Rope with David Yontef podcast. “I kid you not like Captain Glenn is like the most sweetest person. Even on camera. And I think he’s still a bit shy. But yeah, he was just like amazing.”

“He was like such a sweet friend,” she continued. “You can go to him and he would give you the best advice ever. He’s a friend. He’s a good a guy. He is like everything in one. So for me, Captain Glenn is like one of the most amazing human beings I have ever crossed paths with in my life.”

Past crew members have also loved working for Shephard. Chef Adam Glick who was the crossover chef from Below Deck Mediterranean loved working for Shephard. “It feels really good to work for someone that actually trusts the crew,” Glick said in a confessional during the first episode. Later he appeared on WWHL, he added, “The key difference is that Glenn really allowed me to excel. You know, he just let me go. And he trusted me.” 

Deckhand Parker McCown, who quit mid-season told Showbiz Cheat Sheet he too also loved working for Shephard. “Captain Glenn is an awesome captain to work for,” he said. “He is a super fun guy. And, you know, he runs a safe ship and makes sure everybody is having fun.”

Shephard chatted with Showbiz Cheat Sheet last season and shared how he runs his boat.  “Obviously hierarchy and rank is important,” he said. “You have to follow that, otherwise everything breaks down. But I would say we’re definitely less formal than big motor yachts.”

“I like to say I’m a macro-manager and a big picture kind of guy,” he reflected. “I try to hire good people and stay out of their way as much as possible.”

“Obviously I want to be a guiding hand and have a feeling about what’s going on in the departments,” Shephard said. “But I try not to be overbearing because I find it alienates people. I’ve always encouraged them to think for themselves but if you’re not sure, to come and ask.”
