MacGillivray and Stalker had a tough season. Stalker usually felt as if MacGillivray shirked her duties as chief stew to pursue a relationship with chef Adam Glick. That meant Stalker was usually left to choose up the slack. However, MacGillivray thought possibly their personalities didn’t mesh.

“It’s just [the crew] are not my primary focus,” she advised Showbiz Cheat Sheet in early March. “And I do feel like as adults and in that kind of job, you really do have to like pull your own weight and do the job and get it done. And I know that I’ve been super hardcore and I can be. But the stews I have worked with before are now chief stews.”

MacGillivray says they handle their relationship on the reunion

MacGillivray chatted with Amir Yassai and addressed Stalker’s assertion she felt bullied. “There’s a lot of things I got off my chest and that Madison got off her chest and you’ll see, I hope some different sides to things,” MacGillivray says.

She recollects street tripping with Glick after the season wrapped. “And I would cry about things in that nature,” she recollects. MacGillivray shared a narrative about somebody she stood up for who was bullied when she was a teen.

“I would never ever in a million years want to hurt somebody,” she insists. “I will always stand up for someone if something like that happens [bullying]. So it really did upset me to think that Madison felt that way. And we’ve had conversations since and you’ll see in the reunion what transpires.”

Stalker took the habits as bullying

Stalker was usually seen speeding everywhere in the boat to serve the visitors. She was nearly in fixed movement all through the complete season. When she would grumble about Glick and MacGillivray sleeping within the grasp cabin, Glick would verbally assault Stalker.

She shared a non-public second she had with Glick throughout an Instagram Live with Amir Yassai. “At the end of the season, I remember I was washing a dish,” she recollects. “And was like, ‘thanks for bullying me the whole season,’ to Adam. And he’s like, ‘I get paid to bully you.’ And I left.”

Stalker added, “It’s hard for me to watch myself. It’s one thing to get bullied maliciously up until the end of high school, or through college. But to bully someone, actively …”

“I can take bullying,” she continued. “My reaction to bullying is don’t give them an inch. Act like everything’s fine. In fact, I’d go in to use the ‘bathroom’ and turn on the shower and I’d cry. Because you don’t want to show the bullies that they’re winning. Or to get a reaction out of you.”
