Captain Glenn sat down with Jenna for a one-on-one conversation about her management of the interior after she and Georgia Grobler were on a break at the same time, leaving Madison Stalker to handle the interior duties by herself for a period of time. The Below Deck Sailing Yacht boss also asked Jenna to "tone it down" when it comes to her PDA with Adam Glick.
Jenna was noticeably defensive while Captain Glenn shared his feedback and seemed resistant to following his orders during the episode. However, Jenna showed remorse for her actions in a post in her Instagram Story on May 19. "The way I spoke to Captain Glenn in last night's episode was not professional and I have learned a lot about how to deal with my frustrations from seeing my mistakes," Jenna wrote.
She also reflected more on the moment, as well as this season of Below Deck Sailing Yacht as a whole, in another post on Instagram on May 19.
"I got lost this season. Lost in a love I believed in. Lost in a person I believed in. I’m a hopeless romantic that grew up on Disney and foolishly believed I too could find an everlasting love. And for years, when I met someone I felt was worth it, I gave it everything I had. And that is my fault, because in that process I forget no one is going to catch me when I fall. I tried my hardest this season to be a boss. I tried my hardest to be open and vulnerable, and to many of you, that simply wasn’t good enough. But I tried and I will try again. I made mistakes. And you’ll see at the reunion how that transpires," she shared. "It saddens me mostly because I’m a person that takes joy in making others happy. There were a lot of complexities at play. I’ve apologized to Madison, Georgia, and Parker [McCown]. I most recently apologized to Glenn for my tone and behaviour in last night's episode. I feel when I apologize people get mad at me, and if I say nothing, I also get chastised. I'm trying my best. We are all human and make mistakes. So I'm just going to chug this beer in my hand and eat some humble pie."
Captain Glenn shared that he had no hard feelings toward Jenna in the comments to her post on Instagram. "Hey Jenna, you have no need to apologize to me, you’re great in my book, the audience will never know you the way I know you," he said. "You’re not perfect, none of us are, but I’m sure you’re a big enough person to learn from the mistakes and get better moving forward. I take responsibility for not picking up on the tensions sooner, that I might have helped smooth them, but it’s no easy thing we do, and we all knew that going in. Remember it’s not just the message, but how it’s delivered also, that can make the difference."
Captain Glenn also dropped some wisdom on how to deal with critics. "Don’t let the haters and trolls get to you, their vitriol stems from things missing in their lives that they get pleasure in tearing down others, nothing good ever comes from that," he pointed out. "Big hugs from Barcelona until we meet again. Your Pal, Captain Glenn Shephard."
Jenna showed her gratitude for Captain Glenn's kind words. "I have an enormous amount of respect for you as a captain, and I appreciate this public statement," Jenna wrote in response in the comments. "Your humble servant, Chief Stew Jenna MacGillivray. I bend my knee to you."
