Producers from Below Deck Sailing Yacht shared that they were a little concerned when chef Adam Glick whacked his head on a tree branch when he arrived on a small island to gather flowers.

Glick was determined to give chief stew Jenna MacGillivray a bouquet of flowers. So he fibbed to first mate Paget Berry, asking him to take him to a remote island so he could forage for the guests’ dinner. Berry told Showbiz Cheat Sheet Glick was insistent on making the run for the guests. But Berry said he was pretty suspicious. “With everything that’s going on in the boat, he asked to be run to the shore,” Berry said. “I’m like, ‘What do you need to go for?’” 

But when Glick leaped from the boat, Berry and producers were there to witness the epic face plant right into the tree. “I see him running all heroic and then just smack! He just really whacked his head,” Berry recalled laughing.

“And I just burst out laughing,” he said. “And the camera guy is like wobbling and trying not to crack up and everything. We were totally losing our s**t. But then he tries to sort of make it out like nothing happened! But I mean f**k it definitely happened. I’m glad they caught it because it was so funny.”

It was funny but producers were a little worried he was hurt

The moment was captured on film, but then never addressed again. The injury looked pretty bad and producers took it seriously. According to Bravo, Glick smacked his nose on the tree branch, and it looked “very bad — he really smashed his face into that log.”

As the first mate, it was up to Berry to administer first aid to anyone who is injured on the boat. He told Showbiz Cheat Sheet he took his cue from Glick. “I didn’t take a look at him,” Berry said. “He seemed coherent and fine.”

Berry adds that Glick never told him what he was actually doing the entire time. Even after he procured the flowers. “I felt for him though because love is blind,” Berry laughed. “When he came back with the flowers I could tell they were definitely not for a guest,” 

He wasn’t physically injured but was still hurt

Glick was hoping for a grand reaction from MacGillivray, especially after he sustained a nice smack to the head in the process. But when she barely acknowledged them, he became angry. However, he didn’t confront her or say anything to her. Instead he simmered and stewed for the rest of the charter, which she didn’t realize.

The couple later spends some alone time behind closed doors after the guests depart. MacGillivray senses that something is wrong and asks Glick if he’s holding back. She also tells him she loves him. Unfortunately, all of Glick’s bottled up emotions explode.

He responds with, “We just had incredible sex and you immediately bring up something bullsh*t,” Glick says. “You have to, have to, have to say something stupid and ruin the moment.” The two then continue to fight for several hours.

Below Deck Sailing Yacht season finale is on Monday at 9/8c on Bravo.
