It was clear how much Jenna MacGillivray and Adam Glick cared about each other this season of Below Deck Sailing Yacht. However, the couple wasn't always feeling the love from their fellow Parsifal III crew members, whether it was Madison Stalker expressing her disapproval of Jenna and Adam's PDA in the communal crew quarters or Captain Glenn Shephard confronting the chief stew about her interactions with the chef.
However, Jenna is standing by her actions with Adam this season of Below Deck Sailing Yacht. "There's definitely a misconception about how often we were engaged in PDA when other people were around that just people weren't around for it, and it wasn't excessive by any means," she explained in our new video series, The Final Word, which you can view, above. "I would go in in the morning and give him a kiss, and no one was there. Or I'd be doing whatever in the galley or the crew mess, he'd come over and give me a hug. Like I said on the reunion, that was when I was finished with my shift. Some people have a problem with that, I get it, but I'm also not working."
Jenna added, "The second I felt happy and excited to find somebody that I really connected with, every force was coming at us to try and tear that down, and that was heartbreaking for me."
There were other loving moments between the couple that they shared off-camera during the charter season, such as when Adam left a love note wrapped with a piece of sea glass on Jenna's bed that read, "Here's to what feels like a lifetime of combing beaches in search of the perfect piece of sea glass. That's you."
This is a moment that Jenna and Adam both still cherish. "You know, we actually talked about this a couple weeks ago," Jenna recalled in The Final Word. "He was like, 'You know, I really meant it when I did that. I had those passionate feelings.'"
As much as Jenna and Adam were able to sneak in some romance during the hectic charter season, the couple experienced some tense moments as well, sometimes within the same day. Jenna agreed that her relationship with Adam could be hot and cold at times this season. "Those walls that he talked about, that's real," Jenna said. "He'll look for any kind of way to put up another wall so that he can escape intimacy and a natural connection with somebody. That's what I believe, anyway."
Though it wasn't always clear what the future held for Jenna and Adam during the charter season, the two did spend a lot of time getting to know each other off the boat. Not only did they go on a road trip in Greece after the season ended, but they also drove across the country together, spending time with Adam's family and in Jenna's hometown in Canada before celebrating Christmas, which we learned during the reunion on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen: @ Home on June 1.
Jenna opened up more about what went on during her travels with Adam after the charter season ended, including one particularly "crazy" moment, in The Final Word, which you can check out, above. "We had lots of really peaceful, nice moments, too," she said. "Like, lots of adventures wherever we went."
Adam previously confirmed during his appearance on WWHL: @ Home on May 4 that he and Jenna are no longer together, although they keep in touch. But during that same episode, he also said that they were still trying to figure things out. "This whole situation, this whole show has been particularly difficult for us... for pretty obvious reasons," Adam said of his relationship status with Jenna during the Below Deck Sailing Yacht reunion.
When Andy Cohen asked Adam at the reunion whether he and Jenna would ever get back together someday, the chef replied, "Well, to be 100 percent honest, I don't think that's any of you guys' business."
Jenna is similarly keeping whatever lies ahead for her and Adam a bit more private these days, although it doesn't sound like she's ruling anything out. "We have a lot of history, so I'd always be open to a road trip again. We'll see how it goes. But like he said on the reunion, there's a lot of complicated factors," she shared in The Final Word. "For me, personally, I'm just focused on myself right now and my own happiness, and that's all that matters to me in this current moment."
