The chef opened up about his behavior this season during his appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen: @ Home on May 4, and he admitted that he would have done "so many things" over if given the opportunity. "Mostly learning how to manage my temper in a work environment," he explained in the above clip. "It's not for me, and I don't normally have a boss. I generally only answer to myself. So being put into those situations, I don't handle it well, and I think it shows."
Adam then explained why he acted the way he did this season. "Well, it's pretty clear that I have an attitude while I'm working on this incredibly stressful charter yacht, mixed in with having a girlfriend that I've been very clear I didn't want to get into this deep relationship early on. During a working season, it's so important to work. So I didn't handle the situation as well as I could have," he shared. "I think having an attitude adjustment would have been a huge, huge help for me. But at that time and the circumstances and the level of anxiety, stress, and general workload coupled with being in a relationship that's kind of functional, it was very difficult for me, and it showed. There's no question."
One of the moments Adam said he wishes he could take back was that tense discussion with his girlfriend, Jenna MacGillivray, after they hooked up in the master cabin, which we saw the conclusion of in the May 4 episode of Below Deck Sailing Yacht. But when it comes to all of the affection he showed Jenna while working aboard the Parsifal III this season, Adam has no regrets, even if their fellow crew members have called them out on it. "No, we were really good about not doing anything in front of the crew," Adam said on WWHL: @ Home.
All in all, Adam said he wouldn't trade his Below Deck experience, which also includes two seasons on Below Deck Mediterranean, for the world. "No, I think that despite how difficult it's been at times, seeing myself play out on television for three-plus years has been a rewarding experience," he said during the WWHL: @ Home After Show, below. "It's still nice to see yourself and sort of reflect on who you are and how you treat people."
Adam's Below Deck Sailing Yacht adventure continues Mondays at 9/8c. Check out a preview, below.
