Below Deck Med: What Happened to João Franco After Season 4
João Franco has been busy since joining the Bravo series Below Deck Mediterranean. Now he's a captain, engaged, and in a new relationship.
João Franco has been busy since his days at Under Deck Mediterranean. While he was on the show, João was Chief Sailor for Season 3 of Below Deck Med and was promoted to Boatswain the following season. Captain Sandy Yawn impressed in his first season and saw potential in him as a boatswain. João is honored by the compliment and considers Sandy someone he looks up to. During his two seasons, they developed a close friendship that seemed unbreakable.
While Joao's piloting skills may have been excellent, he did not get along well with many of the crew. Former chief flight attendant Hannah Ferrier has repeatedly called him a "misogynist" after he regularly confronted third flight attendant Kathy Laughton in front of his wooing second flight attendant, Brooke Laughton. Kasey Cohen flirts. During "Below Deck" season 3, after João started dating Brooke, he and Hannah were constantly at loggerheads. However, the pair made up the following season and were in a good position. João made an even better impression in his final season. However, he didn't return in the season 5 episode "Below Decks."
João Franco Has Been Busy Since Below Deck Mediterranean
After leaving Sirroco The last lease for Below Deck Med season 4 ends and João prepares to be promoted from an outside team to captain. According to BravoTV, João had an Instagram Live chat with Glenn Shephard, skipper of Below Deck Sailing Yacht in March 2021, where he talked about the officer who completed his watch course and how he was skippering the 30-meter yacht for about a year - and half. Now João, who has captivated fans of the Below Deck Med, is looking forward to passing his duty officer exam. "I'll take my exams in a month and then I'll probably go back to Europe and get a job on a sailing boat," he said. João went on to talk about his first job as captain. "I think the most difficult part of being a captain is dealing with the responsibilities of the lives of the people on board," he added.
João Has Invested In His Relationships
As for his friendship with the former Below Deck Med crew, in a 2021 episode of the podcast "Behind The Velvet Rope", João revealed that he and Captain Sandy are no longer close. João said she often sent mixed messages about their friendship and often questioned her Motivation when helping him in the industry. Now that João has completed his course, he doesn't think he will take up the position again. First, he wanted to make sure he was ready before boarding any larger ship. Besides starting his career as captain, João has found love. In March 2020, he proposed to his girlfriend of many years, Michelle Dikou. However, in June 2021, the couple announced that they were ending their engagement. João is currently dating Domi Tesi.
Now that João is a licensed captain, it is unlikely that he will appear in another season of Under Deck Mediterranean. Although, he may return to the show as the captain at a later date. But Captain Sandy wouldn't be too happy about being the former bosun's captain.
