In the March 14 episode, Marcos hit his head while exiting the refrigerator located beneath the crew quarters, slicing a piece of his scalp off. After receiving medical attention, the doctor told Marcos that the damage was only superficial, and the chef wouldn't require any additional treatment other than keeping the wound bandaged and changing his dressings.
Marcos then got right back to work preparing dinner for Erica Rose's group of charter guests, almost as if he wasn't injured at all. "My head f--king hurts so much, but these guests don't care if I cut my head or no, whatever. They want their food on the table," Marcos said in an interview during the episode. "So I can't stop cooking."
These days, Marcos is "better than ever," he confirmed to a fan on Twitter the morning after this episode of Below Deck Sailing Yacht aired. In a previous tweet, he said that it took a "few weeks" for his head to heal. And, thankfully, his hair grew back where the wound was on his scalp.
Marcos also took a moment to show his gratitude toward Captain Glenn Shephard after the Below Deck Sailing Yacht boss had his back amid complaints from the charter guests about his cooking. Marcos said on Twitter that Captain Glenn was "the best captain [I've] ever [worked] with."
The chef also thanked fans for showing him "huge support" following the episode. "Big love from me," he tweeted.
Everyone was so glad to see Marcos recover quickly from his injury, but Captain Glenn noted how severe the situation could have been for the crew in an interview in the episode. "My first thought is that this is the end of the season for Marcos," he said. "It's that serious."
Gary King underscored Captain Glenn's point during his appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on March 14. "Seeing all that blood and the wound that happened, yeah, I think everyone was scared. Well, we were all scared for Marcos," he said. "But that could've been a game changer if the chef has to leave midway through [the] season, or the beginning of the season at least."
