How Below Deck's Adam Glick Got Into The Guinness Book Of World Records

Fans of Below Deck Mediterranean and Below Deck Sailing Yacht know Chef Adam Glick can cook — and now he has a Guinness World Record to prove it. Glick participated in the Today show's latest Rokerthon, showcasing his sandwich-building skills for a good cause. Rokerthons are Today co-host Al Roker's attempts at breaking world records while bringing awareness to charitable causes. Past challenges have involved the world's longest weather report and fastest time to report a weather forecast in all 50 states (via Today).

This year's challenge, however, was much tastier. Adam Glick joined 68 other celebrity chefs in a collective effort to beat the existing world record for the most people in an online sandwich-making relay. Seems like an unusual accomplishment to pursue, but if it involves yummy food and Adam's handsome face, we're here for it. Other participants included renowned chefs like Bobby Flay, Alex Guarnaschelli, and Priya Krishna. The challenge brought awareness to food insecurity and encouraged viewers to donate to Feeding America and World Central Kitchen.

Adam Glick made the Guinness Book of World Records with a salmon sandwich

The sandwich challenge took place virtually, with Roker checking in with chefs in their home kitchens via video. In a supercut of the event from Today, we got a candid peek into Glick's rugged lifestyle. He prepped his sandwich on a cutting board, balanced on top of a tree stump, in the middle of Oregon's woods. This is really no surprise, considering Glick refers to himself as the "Adventure Chef" and has his own website dedicated to the theme. What was surprising was that Adam evidently broke his arm before the challenge and was chopping ingredients with his left arm in a sling. Roker asked what happened and Glick responded, "Oh man, I was riding a dirt bike in the Grand Canyon, havin' a little too much fun, goin' a little too fast." That sounds about right.

A broken bone didn't stop the Adventure Chef from completing his portion of the relay, though, and the Rokerthon ended in success. Glick posted a photo of his finished dish on Instagram saying, "We did it! Going to be in the @guinnessworldrecords thanks to @alroker and @todayshow". Curious what kind of sandwich the outdoors-obsessed chef who lives in his van made? According to Today, Glick's Rogue River Roll features smoked salmon crumbled into a mixture of dill, onion, celery, lemon, and mayo, and is served on a bun with lettuce and tomato. Not exactly yacht food, but it sounds delicious nonetheless.
