Chef Adam Glick came this close to getting fired on Below Deck Mediterranean Tuesday night after preparing dishes with onions in them — not once but three times — despite the guests' wishes. But Captain Sandy Yawn decided to keep the chef afloat and give him another chance, instead of firing him as he anticipated. "I want to fire Adam, but I can't find a chef mid-season in Croatia," Captain Sandy gave as her reason for keeping Adam on during the episode.
But upon watching the show back and seeing just how many times Adam disobeyed the guests' preference sheets, Captain Sandy changed her tune a little. "In all fairness, I had no idea it was three times. I only knew about twice," Captain Sandy explained on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen Tuesday night. "So the third time I would have fired Adam. I had no idea until I watched the show."
However, that doesn't necessarily mean Captain Sandy regrets her decision. She said on WWHL that she didn't let Adam go "because the guy that I saw every morning was really cool, seemed to be on his game, I had no idea he had this other side to him." She also told Andy that Adam is "a good chef."
Captain Sandy had some harsh words for Hannah Ferrier during the WWHL After Show when she was asked for her take on the chief stew seeming to blame Bugsy Drake for Adam suggesting that she should actually be running the interior. "That's a question for Hannah. However, what do I think of it? I think Hannah was wrong. It wasn't Bugsy; it was Adam. She witnessed it," Captain Sandy said. "You were wrong, Hannah, sorry."
But at least it looks like some peace has been reached when it comes to the so-called Oniongate. Charter guest Kenny Novotny tweeted that he forgives Adam for putting all those dreaded onions in his food, and the Below Deck Med chef returned the love on Twitter, too. "Thank you Kenny. I lost my cool and went down a rough road, being an ass," Adam tweeted. "I'm sorry, lesson definitely learned."
We're not sure if we tearing up because of those sweet sentiments — or because of all of this onion talk.
