On the latest Below Deck Mediterranean episodes, Joao Franco seemed to finally make up his mind between Brooke Laughton and Kasey Cohen, deciding to go with Brooke instead of Kasey. On Tuesday night, Joao and his co-star Colin Macy-O’Toole appeared on Andy Cohen’s talk show Watch What Happens Live. Not surprisingly, the love triangle between Joao, Brooke and Kasey was a big topic of discussion, as was Colin’s unrequited love for Brooke.
When Andy asked Joao what made him choose Brooke over Kasey, Joao initially blurted out that he still doesn’t know what attracted him to Brooke over Kasey.
“I don’t know. I still don’t know.”
Gee, that wasn’t exactly a love declaration for Brooke now was it? Even Andy was surprised. “Really?” he asked shockingly.
Joao, realizing his mistake, then elaborated that he always wanted to be with someone serious and so when Brooke opened up to him, he made up his mind.
“It got to a point where as soon as Brooke opened up… I always had in my mind that I want to be with someone serious if I were to be with anyone and when Brooke opened up eventually, that was my mind made.”
As for why Colin didn’t speak up to Brooke regarding his feelings for her, Colin admitted that he didn’t think there was much potential for a real relationship in real life.
“I don’t know. I think I was too…I can’t even keep a relationship with a girl the next town over from me. She lives in England, so how was that going to work out? Just thinking long term.”
When Andy asked Colin if he thinks he would have won out over Joao if he had actually told Brooke his feelings for her, Colin pretty much said that she would have gone for any man who paid her any attention.
“I don’t know because I think a pencil could have said something to her and she would have dated that pencil.”
Are Joao and Brooke still together?
About two weeks ago, in response to a Below Deck Mediterranean
viewer who had left a comment on one of his photos
saying that Brooke looked great in her swimsuit in the latest episode and that she’s Team Brooke, Joao replied that he’s always Team Brooke.
“lizlegene: Brooke rocked that one-piece; Classy ♥️⭐️ #teambrooke”
“joaograntfranco: @lizlegene always #teambrooke 😉”
In the comments of another photo
he posted, promoting his and Colin’s WWHL
appearance, Joao said that Brooke couldn’t come to support him at his WWHL
appearance because of work.
“joaograntfranco: @napolitanovielot brooke’s working and so is my brother otherwise they would have come:( my sister is in school:/ tough being so far away from everyone”
While it’s unclear whether Joao Franco and Brooke Laughton are still in a relationship together, it’s clear that they still have affection for one another. When Brooke posted a photo
of herself about a week ago, Joao, who frequently comments on Brooke’s photos, left a comment calling her the most beautiful princess.
