João Franco Breaks Down Explaining Why the "Love Tap" Triggered Him

Did our eyes deceive us this season of Below Deck Mediterranean, or did we actually see Colin Macy-O'Toole raise his voice? Yes, believe it, Below Deck Med fans. The usually cheery and comical deckhand briefly lost it on Travis Michalzik after he didn't quite seem to get why his "love tap" moment with Anastasia Surmava could be considered problematic by other people.

And now we finally know what exactly got Colin to that passionate place, thanks to his recent interview with Decider. “Travis is like [last season's João Franco]: he works really hard, it’s just the nights out,” he explained.

But Colin also made sure to note that Travis was “mature enough to have a conversation" that night. Though much of the crew has come down hard on Travis for his partying this season, Colin said that later on, we'll see that "he grows up a little bit, and he does really well for the rest of the season.”

In fact, Colin had nothing but kind words for both Travis and Jack Stirrup during his interview with Decider. “As much of a pain in the ass as they might be sometimes, they were fantastic," he said. "Every day we would just go to bed laughing our asses off because Jack is the funniest dude ever. Travis is so underratedly funny. It was so fun being on deck and working with them."

You've probably noticed this, but Colin isn't one to be in the center of the drama. “I get along with everybody, which is nice,” he said. “I like to be a neutral person that people can talk to about whatever. I’ve always been that guy.”

You just keep doing you, Colin.

Watch Colin and the rest of the crew break down all of the buzzy moments in the Below Deck Mediterranean Season 4 After Show, above.

See what's coming up for Colin in an all-new episode of Below Deck Med Monday at 9/8c, below.
