Below Deck Mediterranean

This was back in 2013, and in 2016 Adam set sail for Split, Croatia to film the second season of Below Deck Mediterranean. Adam joined the crew of Sirocco as the chef and had a complicated relationship with deckhand Malia White, who also had feelings for bosun Wes Walton. Adam also clashed with Captain Sandy Yawn over his food preferences and disobeyed some of the guests’ requests. He ended the season on bad terms with Malia and Wes, but apologized to Captain Sandy for his behavior. In 2018, Adam returned as the chef of Talisman Maiton on Below Deck Mediterranean Season 3 and had a more relaxed and professional attitude. He got along well with the crew and the guests, and even developed a friendship with Hannah Ferrier, the chief stew who he disliked in the previous season.
Adam left Below Deck after two seasons but was back for the spin-off Below Deck Sailing Yacht season 1. Adam joined the crew of Parsifal III as the chef and started a romance with chief stew Jenna Macgillivray. However, their relationship was rocky and often affected their work performance. Adam also had some issues with Captain Glenn Shephard over his food presentation and delivery. He left the boat with Jenna after the season ended, but they broke up shortly after.
Outside his work in reality TV, Adam also owns and operates a YouTube channel Chef Adam Glick where he posts tutorial videos to help and inspire young and coming chefs.
