The chief stew opened up in a lengthy note on Instagram on April 21 in which she expressed remorse for how she acted during some moments this season. "It’s rare that I don’t get along with people. So doing this season was stressful to have conflict. I’m going to keep this short and simple. And I’d appreciate it if people took my words as truth, and not just an attempt to get favour," Jenna began her message, which also featured a photo of her out of uniform, sitting on the deck of the Parsifal III with a drink in hand, her back to the camera. "I apologize for some of my behaviour. It was not my intent to belittle or hurt people in any way, but I understand that’s what happened to some people, as a result of my actions."
She went on to say that, in watching the season back, she has realized that some of her behavior was interpreted differently by others than how she intended. "No one is perfect. And when people say, 'I hope you’re watching and self reflecting,' I am," Jenna wrote. "Some of the show is hard to watch. It’s different for me because I know my intentions, but I certainly understand on all boats there are varying personalities and I am not easy for everyone."
Jenna said that she now realizes she should have been more attentive toward her interior team of Madison Stalker and Georgia Grobler while she was so focused on her relationship with Adam Glick and the charter guests. "I came in guns blazing. I wanted to give the best experience to the guests, and I understand that at times that meant I wasn’t focused on the girls. I should’ve spent more time. And that is a regret of mine," she said. "I was focused on Adam. And just managing everything to the best of my ability and sometimes I failed."
Jenna ended her note by apologizing for some of the things she said to Georgia and Madison during the season, as well as Parker McCown, who expressed that he was offended by the chief stew's jokes about his mom still "breastfeeding" him before resigning due to the ongoing tension with some of his crew members. "I wanted to have fun with everyone. And I understand sometimes my words came across in a harsh way. And for that I am sorry. To Georgia, Madison, and Parker. I will never say any of you weren’t working your asses off. There were dynamics that were at times difficult," Jenna wrote. "So again. I am sorry. I would never want someone to feel like s--t because of me. And that’s the truth."
