This Moment Made Captain Glenn Shephard Rethink the Cabin Assignments
The Below Deck Sailing Yacht captain is "used to" sharing a room with a member of his crew, but one recent incident gave him cause for concern.
Although Captain Glenn Shephard explained last year that sharing a room with a member of his crew each season is "not that big of a deal," he was thinking a bit differently after an incident on the February 21 episode of Below Deck Sailing Yacht.
On Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Glenn opened up about the moment, in which deckhand Tom Pearson got sick in their shared bathroom after a night of drinking. "After Tom's late-night fiasco, did it make you think twice about not having your own captain's quarters à la Sandy [Yawn] and Lee [Rosbach]?" Andy asked, to which Glenn responded, "Absolutely. If I ever wanted it, that was the night that I wanted it, for sure."
On a June 2021 episode of Pita Party, Glenn opened up to Alli Dore, Dani Soares, and Daisy Kelliher about sharing his sleeping space. "Some people ask me, 'How come you don't have your own cabin as a captain?' and I guess they're used to seeing it for years on the motor yacht show," he said. When Alli pointed out that Jean-Luc Cerza-Lanaux was "crawling over" Glenn when they shared a cabin for part of Season 2, Glenn explained, "I'm used to that, you know, I'm fine. It's not a problem."
"In general, it is what it is," he continued. "There [are] so many things I like about this boat. There's only a couple of things I don't like, and one of them is obviously sharing [a room] in-season, but you guys know it's so busy. You go in there, you sleep, you go back out, so it's not that big of a deal. It's not like I'm chilling in there all the time and I'm being inconvenienced."
The sleeping arrangement, Glenn explained, is also temporary. "In between seasons, we usually drop down a [couple of crew members]," he shared. "So I kick them out and I have my own cabin for half the year, more than half the year."
