Johnny as a contestant on season 19 of The Bachelorette with Rachel Recchia and Gabby Windey. He received Gabby’s group date rose during week two. Then, during week three, he chose to pursue a connection with Gabby over Rachel, and accepted Gabby’s rose at the rose ceremony. Johnny got his first one-on-one date during week 5, and opened up to Gabby about his past struggles with depression. He got a rose after the one-on-one date.

During hometown dates, Gabby met Johnny’s family in Florida. However, it was at this point that Johnny began to realize that he wasn’t sure he’d be ready for an engagement at the end of the show. The next week, Gabby confronted Johnny with this during the daytime portion of their fantasy suite date. After a long conversation, Johnny admitted that he couldn’t 100 percent commit to getting engaged in just a week or two, and they broke up. They did not make it to the nighttime portion of the fantasy suite.
