'Below Deck': Show tackles drug scandal ahead of Season 1 finale, fans say it's the only interesting storyline
As 'Below Deck Sailing Yacht' prepares to close curtains on Season 1, the Parsifal III gears up for the final charter. But, little did they know it would turn out to be this eventful.
Chris Miller pulled Jenna MacGillivray to the side while she was serving dinner to the charter guests to let her know that there may be drugs on board. At the moment, it seemed Jenna was sure the guests were high but in her green-room interview, she clearly mentioned that she and Chris were only suspecting that illegal substances have been brought on board.
"If guests bring drugs on board, it can put us all at risk of being charged. So, if I suspect something and Chris suspects something, and we didn't say anything about it, the onus is on us," the chief stewardess pointed out and the next morning, she told Captain Glenn Shephard all about it. He was shocked at first because he wasn't informed earlier but took a deep interest in the information that Jenna gave her.
Glenn wanted to make sure the "white powder" that was spotted on Billy's (a guest onboard) nose was not makeup. So, he had a chat with Chris before he could rummage through the guests' luggage bags, hoping to find some drugs.
Meanwhile, fans think the drug storyline is the most interesting one of the season.
"If they find drugs on the yacht, it will literally be the only interesting part of this season #BelowDeckSailing," a fan commented, while another tweeted: "I’m going to watch just for that and Jenna getting in trouble." "Yeah I yawned so many times my tv changed the channel," a viewer shared.
This isn't surprising because most of the season the focus was on Jenna and Adam Glick's relationship, which the viewers couldn't keep up with because of the toxicity that surrounds it. They are together, but vulnerable and that explains the multiple fights the couple has had in the season.
"Stopped watching #BelowDeckSailing a few episodes ago but got bored under quarantine and decided to give it another go. That’s a hard no. Jenna and Adam make this entire show unwatchable. #Bravo really messed up casting on this one. Adam can’t carry the show with these assholes," a viewer expressed.
Catch the Season 1 finale of 'Below Deck Sailing Yacht' on Bravo on May 25, Monday.
