Mike stole viewers hearts with his charm and big, bright smile. In fact, many were upset when he wasn’t chosen as the lead of this season’s “Bachelor.”
However, fans of the Air Force veteran will be happy to know Mike’s stayed busy since leaving Hannah Brown’s group of eligible bachelors, experiencing everything from a fling with celebrity “Bachelorette” fan Demi Lovato to scoring a deal with Smirnoff.
After seeing the show, Demi Lovato was one of those “Bachelorette” viewers “fan-girling” over Mike. So much so, that when Hannah Brown gave Johnson the boot, Demi Lovato raced to be the next apple of his eye.
When his “Bachelorette” episodes aired, Lovato broke the ice by taking to her Instagram story with a video of Mike on the show. The text across the video read “Mike I accept your rose” with a rose emoji.
A few months later in September 2019, insider sources revealed the two went out on a date and fans noticed they were liking each other’s Instagram photos.
On September 30, Johnson told People, Lovato “kisses really well” and gushed that her aggressive nature in pursuing him was “incredibly sexy.” However, just a couple weeks later, he announced their split on “Good Morning America” saying “I made a mistake, I don’t like dating in public.”
However, Mike wasn’t wasting any time shedding tears over Demi, moments later during his “Good Morning America” appearance, he asked Keke Palmer on a date. So much for not wanting to date in public, Mike.
Mike isn’t the only contestant from Hannah Brown’s season to pursue a famous actress after their season aired. Other fan-favorite Tyler Cameron had a fling of his own with model Gigi Hadid.
However, like Mike, Gigi and Tyler’s relationship was short-lived and the two have unfollowed each other on Instagram since they parted ways.
Mike flew to the University of South Carolina to make one fan’s night at her school’s semi formal. He shared the heartwarming moment they walked into the dance on his Instagram page.
In the caption, Mike wrote, “Last night I went to my FIRST EVER semi-formal and surprised a sweet young woman who has had a rough year. After that we had laughs and created fun memories.”
Fans gushed in the comment section. One user wrote, “he’s so sweet I can’t,” while another wrote “if Mike Johnson took me to a dance, I think I’d die of happiness.”
Apart from his love life, Mike is also making moves in his career. Earlier this week, he announced his partnership with the popular alcohol brand Smirnoff.
On Instagram, he shared a photo holding the brand’s rose seltzer with a caption marked #ad.
The caption read, “#ad I’m partnering with @smirnoffus this year, the official hard seltzer brand of the Bachelor! Monday night I surprised 200 Bach Nation fans at a watch party – it was awesome seeing all the surprised faces and getting to share a rose seltzer with some of you! Also loved all the #ChampagneGate reactions! Whose side are you on? #willyouacceptthisrose.”
It seems Mike Johnson isn’t taking his part from “Bachelorette” too hard, stacking both a phonebook of famous ladies and fans and his sponsorship coin.
