Hey there! My name is Chad Johnson and thank you for visiting my site. My guess is that you know me from The Bachelorette, The Bachelor In Paradise 3 or Famously Single 2.

This reality show thing has been a wild ride.

On The Bachelor TV shows I’m portrayed as a villain.

Am I really the bad guy?

…or do I just play one on TV?

The year leading up to my debut on The Bachelorette was the toughest year of my life.

My mom lost her battle with cancer.

She was the kindest person I’ve ever known and my best friend.

I’m still healing from the passing of my mom, but want to start a family of my own someday.

Family means EVERYTHING to me.

Luckily I have the most amazing sister ever.

With her encouragement I went on The Bachelorette.

I didn’t find love on that show, but it was a good way for me to blow off some steam.

Life is short.

Experiencing this tragedy was a reminder of that.

…and gives me perspective.

A lot of other people on these reality shows, take this stuff WAY too seriously.

I’m fully aware of how RIDICULOUS a lot of this is.

LOVE me or HATE me?

When I’m on a reality show it is 10X better.

Mixing a guy like me with a bunch of dudes with wussy tendencies is bound to be good TV!

You see…

I’m a former Marine from Tulsa, Oklahoma.

I’m used to guys who can take a joke… and enjoy poking fun at each other.

I’m not accustomed to overly-sensitive types.

(Unfortunately, they are taking over.)

I’d probably get along better with men from the WW1 or WW2 era.

I have decided to start a FREE Email Newsletter about these topics.
