The youngest player in the house, newly single Johnny is heartbroken after ending his relationship with Real World: Portland, girlfriend Averey. Now, with the help of a hometown alliance, Johnny is ready to let loose and take on Free Agents. Like his former housemate Jordan, Johnny believes his rookie status is a blessing not a curse, "I like the fact that I'm a rookie. Me coming into the game, no one knows how I'm gonna play. So I got that kind of element of surprise still." However, temptation from the ladies in the house might cloud his focus. Johnny admits, "Once I get out of my little shy shell, my persona will probably change." With gas in the tank for days, keep your eye on this newbie—he could end up going the distance.
Battle of the Exes II
After falling in love on their season of The Real World: Portland, Averey moved across the country to be with her Boston boy, Johnny. However, when rumors emerged that Averey was cheating, their once red-hot romance burned quickly to the ground. Even though Averey denied any wrongdoing, Johnny ended the relationship two days before leaving to compete on last season's Free Agents. Johnny charges, "As far as I'm concerned, Averey cheated on me." The tables turned when Free Agents aired, and Averey discovered that Johnny hooked up with the sexy veteran, Nany. Averey explains, "He has not even said sorry or admitted it to me. That's what hurts me. After everything that we've been through, you can't even respect me as a person?!" Will Johnny give Averey the closure she needs to trust him? Or will the cracks in their already fragile relationship shatter any chance they have at making it to the Final?
Childish name-calling and screaming dominated Johnny and Jessica's relationship on The Real World: Portland. In fact, Southern belle Jessica is still emotionally scarred from Johnny fat-shaming her repeatedly, revealing, "I was devastated. I don't understand how you can fit that much dick into one personality." Try as he might, Johnny just can't come up with any compliments to describe his new partner, "Plain and simple, everything she does aggravates me. Her voice from across the room pierces my eardrums." If Johnny had his way, he would never speak to Jessica again, but she sees friendship as necessary to their team success. Will the brutally honest Johnny be able to fake-play-nice and convince his partner that he respects her as a competitor? Or will this pair fall apart and resort back to the ugly name-calling of their past?
