Colin talks casting for Below Deck Sailing Yacht and Below Deck Down Under
When Colin stopped by the Dear Diary You’re Effed podcast to chat with his former colleague Hannah Ferrier, he revealed that he had cast for the Below Deck franchise.
In Tonight’s Teen Mom 2, Kail Lowry explains that she can’t “justify” Chris Lopez’s custody offer to keep Lux and Creed “all summer.”

“I was a casting producer for Below Deck Down Under,” he explained.
Hannah and Colin each toppled the series that just wrapped filming in Australia a few weeks ago, which is great news for Under Deck fans. This means that the show will likely air in early 2022 or maybe late 2021 if production can get it up in time.
The funny deckhand then dropped the bomb he is helping to launch Season 3 of the sailing yacht below deck. Since the end of Season 2 last month, viewers have wondered if the Sailing Show would return. While Bravo remains silent on the subject, it looks like another season is on the horizon.
Colin teases the frustrating part of the Under Deck shows casting
The casting experience was one hell of an adventure for Colin, who happily admitted that it was great to get a better behind-the-scenes look at the show.
Colin also shared that the frustrating part of casting is finding people qualified for the show who want to do it.
“The show is so popular that everyone wants to participate,” he said. “What’s frustrating about the cast, and I’m the lowest, the guys above me take care of a lot of it. I’m contacting people to see if they want to be on the show, or they’ll contact me, and their experience is like working at Applebee’s or Chili’s or a chain restaurant, and I’m like “It doesn’t work” doesn’t matter. not. ‘”
The other difficulty in finding the right cast or the right team members comes from the qualified people who don’t want to be on the show.
“It’s really hard. Like 90% of the people we contact don’t want to do it even though they are qualified because they are afraid their life will be ruined,” explained Colin.
Overall, although Colin Macy-O’Toole enjoys the casting for Below Deck Down Under and Below Deck Sailing Yacht.
Under Deck Mediterranean airs Mondays at 9 / 8c on Bravo.
