I feel like this Below Deck Sailing Yacht Recap is going to be a bit difficult. There are an awful lot of people to hear from on the show. Will Andy have a mute button for this group? I wonder if Jenna will have any sort of remorse for her behavior or if she is just going to defend and deflect like she did with Captain Glenn? I usually hate recapping reunions because of all the screaming. But anything is less stressful than what I just watched on the news. We have a madman in the white house. I think he is doing everything he can to claim he can’t be voted out because the country is at war. I’m not kidding. Anyway, I’m a tad late to this, but let’s get started.
The Least Fun Three-way Ever
We start with the Paget, Ciara and Georgia triangle. Ciara says she was not bothered by it. She says she thinks that both Georgia and Paget could have been more respectful. However, she’s not going to fight for someone who doesn’t want her. Georgia keeps rolling her eyes about the entire topic. Georgia’s excuse is that she flirted with all the guys on the boat except for Adam. And she asked Glenn to marry her so she could get a green card. Paget says that working on a boat in confined spaces it is easy to overstep boundaries and that he flirted with Byron a lot. Paget says that he has apologized to Ciara. Enough about this topic. Can we move on?
I didn’t realize that Chris was not in the mix until after the first break when they Skyped him in. He says he as been doing physical therapy on his back and it is doing better. And just like that he was dismissed. Why? That’s so weird. Then we talk to Parker. He has no regrets. Captain Glenn is very supportive of Parker. Oh! Chris is back. Jenna pretends that all her snarky comments were her attempts befriend Parker. He doesn’t accept that assertion.
Keeping It In The (Bravo) Family
Madison jumps in to say that Jenna’s bullying of others was hurtful. She says that banter among friends is one thing, but bullying for your own amusement is another. Georgia agrees. Jenna deflects by saying she was trying to be inclusive. Jenna is delusional. Madison is heated. She points out that she took Georgia and Ciara swimming and left her behind to “punish her.” Jenna says that any rational person watching that would know that she was joking. I’m fairly rational at the moment (though rationality is fairly fleeting these days) and what I know is that Jenna is a cuntsatchel and intended to hurt Madison’s feelings on a daily basis. Georgia sort of sticks up for Jenna.
Adam is joined by a dog that Andy asks about and this seems to be a good place to share that Andy had to rehome Wacha because of his aggression toward Ben. At first my cold dark heart broke a bit for Andrew. But then I learned his new home is basically his other home where he stays when Andy travels. So he spends a lot of time there and Andy can still see him.
Apparently, Madison is “talking to” Luke Gulbranson from Summer House. I’m not sure I see that, but okay. I had no idea Captain Glenn had to room with Byron. Ugh. Captain Sandy. It’s not time for me to see her yet.
Apparently, Andrew thinks we care about Jenna and Adam. He asks Jenna where there relationship stands and she tells him to ask Adam. So he does. Adam starts rambling about “the difficulties of the show.” It seems to me that he is pissed about his edit but says he has no one to blame but himself. He chose to do the show and now he has to live with the consequences. Awwwww poor widdle Adam. Jenna says after the show she moved to San Francisco together. She met his family. They took a road trip in the van to her town in Canada. Then they drove back to California. Then they drove back her her town for Christmas. Jenna says there have been a lot of “complications with the show” and how they are both dealing with that.
Both of these idiots seem to feel like they are not together because of the backlash against them when season began to air. Pulease. Adam knows the drill. This is not his first rodeo. Jenna was a bully who kept begging a guy for sex all season. How did she think she was going to be received by social media? Jenna is now trying to lie about sleeping with the same guy that Georgia did. Georgia says that Adam seemed to have an idea about how he wanted Jenna to be. But when Jenna was herself, he didn’t like it.
Georgia and Madison both think Adam is bad for Jenna. Ciara says that being a couple on the boat is fine as long you are doing your job and the guests are happy. When Andy asks if Jenna and Adam will get back together one day, Adam tells Andy that is not their business.
Standing Up To The Bully
A viewer asks Jenna why she told on Madison for staying up late with Parker when she was off the clock while you would leave during your shift to nap with Adam? We you setting a good example? Jenna replies by saying that when she would sit on Adam’s lap in the crew mess she was off shift and that was her home and the only place they could be together. Then she said that Ciara and Paget had their own cabin for privacy. Meanwhile, Madison is breaking her arm raising her hand to rebut this. Probably to mention Jenna spent all her time hunching up on Adam in the galley during her shift.
Madison said that at the end of the day, she just wanted to sit down and have something to eat without a camera in her face at the end of her shift. And if you recall she would do that and then leave something out for Parker to have to eat with a sweet note. She would then tell him good night and go to bed. Madison is pissed at Georgia after watching the show and seeing that she didn’t have her back with Jenna. Georgia says that she was caught between two women who out ranked her and they both expected her to be on their side. Madison is getting really upset with Georgia for back tracking now.
Jenna And Adam Deserve Each Other
Andy moves on and asks Jenna why she laughed about making Madison cry. She viewer says that she comes off as cruel when she and Adam laughed about punishing and breaking Madison. Which they did. A lot. Andy even said that was tough to watch. Jenna basically says she knows her true character and what was shown on TV really isn’t her. Really? On ever single episode you were a horrible person. How did that accidentally happen to you? Madison tells Jenna she made her live a living hell, Jenna was malicious and hurt her. Madison says Jenna was trying to hurt her and she was trying to break her down. This is true and when she did hurt her she fucking laughed about it with Adam.
Jenna basically says things would have gone better if she hadn’t spent the whole season trying to get Adam to fuck her. Then she says that Madison just needs a different Chief Stew. I could not agree more. Jenna is at a loss as to what she could give Madison. How about someone that does their job rather than shit talking her second stew to the cook? Then come the fake fucking tears from Jenna where she swears she has reflected on her behavior. She would “never want bad feelings toward anyone.” EXCEPT WHEN SHE IS LAUGHING WITH ADAM ABOUT BREAKING MADISON. Which she did. And Madison left the boat emotionally broken. Madison doesn’t give a fuck anymore.
