Captain Glenn Says This Person Is “Hands Down” the Best Below Deck Sailing Yacht Chef

Below Deck Sailing Yacht Captain Glenn Shephard has major praise for one particular Parsifal III chef.

What Would Captain Glenn Shephard Do in Captain Sandy Yawn’s Position?

Captain Glenn Shephard appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on April 24. And let’s just say: What happened aboard the Parsifal III does not stay there. While in the Bravo Clubhouse, the Below Deck Sailing Yacht boss shared plenty of tea from his adventures at sea and even weighed in on his favorite galley chef.

One caller had this delicious question for the boat boss, see above: “Over the past four seasons [of BDSY], who’s been your favorite yacht chef?” Glenn responded: “[Marcos Spaziani], hands down. I mean, I worked with some great chefs, but…”

Spaziani was the chef during Season 3.

During his WWHL appearance, Glenn also answered questions about what he would’ve done in some of the situations his Bravo peer Captain Sandy Yawn has found herself in. One question in particular centered on chefs. “How would you handle your chef consistently failing at time management due to overcomplicating dishes and wanting to provide the guests with quantity over quality?” Andy asked.

“No, quality’s gotta be there,” Glenn responded. “One hundred percent.”

Glenn previously weighed on Season 2 chef Natasha De Bourg's culinary skills in that season's reunion.

"I love Natasha's food. I gained a lot of weight during the season. She's an amazing chef," he said on Part 1 of the Below Deck Sailing Yacht reunion in 2021.

He did note — as did Natasha — that she had other issues on board.

We all make mistakes, and I think she made some mistakes," Glenn said at the time. "I think she misinterpreted some orders and stuff like that."

Gary King appeared in the Clubhouse alongside Glenn, and the two played a game of “The BFF Test." During the game, Andy asked the two sailing buffs questions and they both had to answer at the same time on the count of three. Things got very interesting during the Q&A. 

Both Glenn and Gary agreed that Gary has “more game” than Colin MacRae. However, they held opposing ideas about where hookups should take place on the boat. “Hooking up in the guest cabin: totally fine or out of line?” Andy asked. Glenn answered “Out of line,” while Gary stated, “Totally fine.”
