Charter guests have been known to get a little rowdy on Below Deck Mediterranean, but it's not often that the crew has to remove the owner of a neighboring yacht to get him to disembark the boat. That's exactly what happened in the most recent episode of Below Deck Med when João Franco had to physically carry the yacht owner off of the Sirocco after things got heated between him and the crew's current group of charter guests.
But up until that point, everything seemed fine to both Colin Macy-O'Toole, who was on deck at the time, and João, who was awoken from his sleep, wearing pajamas and all, when things seemed to get a little tense among everyone on board, the yachties recalled in the Below Deck Mediterranean Season 4 After Show, which you can view, above.
Colin revealed when "things escalated a little bit." "They start talking about politics, and they started getting heated up again," he explained. "You know, you could tell something was about to happen."
And when something did happen, João said he had no choice but to escort the yacht owner off of the Sirocco. "It was almost a catch-22. What do you do, I mean, his boat was next door to us, and he's a millionaire. How do you deal with a millionaire?" he said during the Below Deck Med After Show. "But as soon as he grabbed [primary charter guest Michelle Damon's] arm, instincts just kicked in. There's nothing to it. I picked him up and carried him off."
Let's just say the yacht owner didn't exactly appreciate the free ride. "After dropping him down, I was trying to be as professional as I could be. And then he was saying to me, 'Do you know what you've just done? Do you know who you are?'" João said. "I'm thinking, 'You're a douche,' but I'm like, 'Sorry, sir, you can't be here. Sorry. Please leave.'"
We can only imagine that made for some awkward run-ins on the dock.
