On Below Deck Sailing Yacht, Captain Glenn Shephard has an experience unlike any other captain within the Below Deck franchise: He shares his cabin with a member of the crew. On March 15, Glenn gave more details about his rooming situation while answering fan questions directly via text message.

"I think our boat started as an eight-crew boat, but we really need nine," Glenn explained. "And the only way to get another bunk in there was to put it in the captain's cabin. That happened long before I joined."

Unlike Parsifal III, "a lot of motor yachts have that extra space, so it's not an issue," Glenn shared. Although he doesn't exactly love having a roommate, he explained why "it's not that big [of] a deal," writing: "In season, we're so busy. We just go in there to sleep." Additionally, he noted, "It's much less hassle for me to share than it is for us to be a crew [member] down." Of course, it also helps that the arrangement is temporary. "In between seasons...I have the cabin to myself," he said. 

While Glenn clearly doesn't mind the setup, there was one particular moment that made him wish that he had his own space. On Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen's February 21 episode, the host asked Glenn for his thoughts on deckhand Tom Pearson getting sick in their shared bathroom. "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]?" he asked, to which Glenn replied, "Absolutely. If I ever wanted it, that was the night that I wanted it, for sure."
