Parker McCown is speaking out about the Below Deck Sailing Yacht cast after the recent episode featured the crew criticizing his every move.
Third stew Georgia Grobler is sticking by the deckhand, who is speaking his mind.
Chef Adam Glick, first mate Paget Berry, chief stew Jenna MacGillivray and deckhand Ciara Duggan have been ganging up on nice guy Parker the entire season.
However, it was out of control in this week’s episode. Adam blasted Parker for not making his bed, and Paget scolded him for not listening to the chain of command.
Based on the preview clip for next week’s episode of the Bravo show, Captain Glenn Shepard has a stern talk with Parker.
Before the episode airs, Parker is expressing his thoughts on the way he was treated by the Below Deck Sailing Yacht cast.
Parker wasn’t valued by cast
In an interview with In Touch Weekly, which also included Georgia, Parker says he was not valued by the crew on the Parsifal III.
“No, I don’t think I was necessarily treated unfairly. I think maybe I wasn’t quite valued the way I could have been by all the crew members,” Parker expressed to the magazine.
“I valued you,” responded Georgia, and Parker agreed with her.
Parker may not have felt valued by the crew, but it didn’t stop him from being himself.
He believes his lack of experience contributed to Parker not being appreciated. It was his first time working on a luxury yacht.
Below Deck Sailing Yacht – the higher ranks are such dicks, especially Adam and Jenna. Hey Jenna, how about you stop flirting in the galley and do some work? I'm totally team Madison and Parker. #BelowDeckSailingYacht

The deckhand admitted there were times people may have thought he was unprofessional. When in reality, he wasn’t trying to act that way at all.
Another issue is the hierarchy on the sailing yacht. Parker thinks the way he was treated stemmed from him being low man on the totem pole.
Parker’s first forte into reality TV
Below Deck Sailing Yacht was the first forte into reality television for both Georgia and Parker. The deckhand shared a lesson he learned while filming the Bravo show.
“I think I would have controlled my attitude a little bit better, and maybe my tone of voice and overall volume,” he revealed.
Despite all the drama with the crew, Parker is open to going on any of the Below Deck franchises. Georgia also agreed she would be up for a second chance on the yachting show or perhaps even a reality TV dating show.
Parker McCown is proving yet again he is the nicest guy ever. The Below Deck Sailing Yacht cast did not value him, but he owns the part he played in their actions.
At least Georgia Grobler has let Parker know she appreciated him during their time on the luxury yacht.
Below Deck Sailing Yacht airs Mondays at 9/8c on Bravo.
