‘Below Deck Sailing Yacht’: Is Chef Adam Getting Cold Feet About a Relationship With Jenna MacGillivray?

Jenna MacGillivray from Below Deck Sailing Yacht teased that her relationship with chef Adam Glick goes through a number of ups and downs.

MacGillivray told Showbiz Cheat Sheet the budding romance viewers saw last week is complicated. “You will see as the relationship between Adam and I progresses, I can tell you we do have up’s and down’s, but I do feel like to elude to some event, you’ll see some definite f**king up’s and down’s and rockiness,” she said.

She flicked at a glimmer of what viewers saw from Glick during a recent episode too. “You’ll see some vulnerability in both of us,” she added. “Adam goes through a lot in this season, mostly because of me,” she says laughing. “And I’m not saying it’s in a bad way necessarily, but there will be some things he needs to go through this season to get to a different place. And I don’t know if he necessarily gets there or not.”

He seems to be changing his tune

Glick came in hot with MacGillivray, almost from the minute the two arrived on Parsifal III. After massive flirting, the two finally exchanged a kiss on the flybridge. They continued to snuggle and cuddle on charter, but suddenly Glick seemed to get cold feet.

MacGillivray suggested they steal away together and spend some time alone. Glick seemed to be on board but quickly cooled to the idea. “I definitely think Adam’s giving mixed signals,” MacGillivray said in a confessional. “I’m not sure if he’s nervous to start a relationship on the boat or he’s not interested.” Tension between the two really starting to build during a crew dinner.

The two couples went back to the boat while the rest of the crew went out on the town. At this point, MacGillivray was exasperated with Glick. He told her that he wasn’t into hooking up with her and glibly told her she should go out with the rest of the crew. She became emotional and walked away in tears.

Glick turns on MacGillivray

After weeks of flirting and snuggling, Glick delivers some pretty harsh words for MacGillivray. He tries to talk to her as she cries on the dock. She insists she’s trying to catch up. But in an upcoming preview, Glick’s tone is nothing short of spicy. As she cries he says, “Here we go, here’s the real girl. You don’t just break down on a dock for no f**king good reason.”

She says he’s not understanding. “Then I can’t keep up with that,” he shoots back. “That’s f**king random and psychotic.” His comments motivate MacGillivray to walk away. “I must be psychotic for thinking we actually had something special,” MacGillivray says in a confessional. “Like, f**k you.”

“The most honest way to describe our relationship is super complicated,” MacGillivray told Showbiz Cheat Sheet. “There will always be tons of feelings and emotions between Adam and I because of everything we’ve been through and continue to go through.”
