Chad Johnson has definitely made his mark on reality TV culture in the United States. But instead of throwing in the towel, and resigning himself to a quiet life in the suburbs, he's taking this career abroad. You can catch Johnson on the next season of Celebrity Big Brother UK.
It seems Johnson has been hit with the reality TV bug. (Maybe the same one that afflicts Whaboom guy from Rachel Lindsay's season of The Bachelorette.) After appearing on Jojo Fletcher's season of the dating show, Johnson went on Bachelor In Paradise. That didn't work out so wel,l and Johnson was ousted after the first episode. Then, he took his talents to Famously Single. Still, he couldn't get enough.

We all know Chad Johnson as the guy who single-handedly enraged everyone on his season of The Bachelorette. He was also one half of some Bachelor in Paradise drama that seemed like a giant scandal at the time, but that the upcoming season has definitely topped. Despite all of that riveting TV, no one in the United Kingdom knows about Johnson.
Fans were less than impressed. Others had the same reaction we initially did: he's rude, but he's kinda cute. Well, we learned our lesson the hard way. Soon, UK viewers will, too. He's already started off this season by yelling "Boom! You're pregnant!" in his audition tape. How...charming.
Charm is going to be his best bet at success on the show. Avid Celebrity Big Brother UK watchers aren't convinced Johnson has what it takes. The show is, essentially, a popularity contest. If he's anything like he was on The Bachelorette, that might prove to be tricky.
As happy as we are to pass Johnson off to the United Kingdom, don't you long for the days when the biggest Bachelorette drama was when Johnson pulled Evan Bass' shirt?
