On this season of The Bachelorette, Chad Johnson made a name for himself for numerous reasons, but mostly for being a villain. He didn’t make it past Episode 4 with JoJo Fletcher before being sent home, but it’s known that he headed down to Mexico for Season 3 of Bachelor In Paradise. There has been speculation that he would be the next lead on The Bachelor, but now there is talk that he may end up getting his very own spinoff instead.
It may be hard to believe, but there is the possibility that ABC would be willing to put a lot of faith in Chad Johnson and his ability to draw ratings. Sure, he may be one of the most notorious villains in the history of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, but the guy knows how to get some attention.
Chad did head to Mexico to film Bachelor In Paradise, which is set to premiere on August 2, but word has gotten out that he won’t last too long there. He ends up going home alone and it could be because he ends up using a “really awful word” toward a female cast member, or it could be for any number of reasons.
While some think that may be the end of his reality TV show career, creator Mike Fleiss teased that may not be necessarily true. There is already The Bachelorette, The Bachelor, and Bachelor In Paradise, but what about another show? What about Chad Johnson having his very own gig?
I hear ya, #BachelorNation!!! How ’bout this little nugget? I’m thinking Chad should be the next Bachelor spinoff…

This is the same guy who had a security guard watching over him because the other guys on The Bachelorette were frightened of what he may do, and you want to give him a spinoff? It may not be a bad idea, as ABC and Fleiss know what is popular and know what sells.
As Buddy TV reported, this was not a one-time comment from Fleiss as he kept the chatty discussion going two days later.
Wasn’t saying Chad should be our next Bachelor… Was thinking he might need a new show of his own! #ChadtotheBone

It should come as no surprise, but there have been mixed reactions to Fleiss saying this about Chad Johnson in the past couple of weeks. Some fans are dead set against it, and don’t like him, so they wouldn’t want to watch a show all about him.
Others love his attitude and think he’s hilarious, so they are all for the possibility of him getting his own spinoff or at least coming back to be the lead on The Bachelor. It’s hard to imagine a series of his own wouldn’t be hilarious and quite entertaining, and he knows it too.
Maybe Mike Fleiss is just stirring up trouble like he enjoys doing, or maybe he really has something up his sleeve for Chad Johnson. Only time will tell and true plans won’t likely be known until after the upcoming season of Bachelor In Paradise is over.
So, Chad Johnson couldn’t find love on this season of The Bachelorette and he obviously won’t find it on Season 3 of Bachelor In Paradise either. He stole Robby Hayes’ ex-girlfriend, but Chad insists that it was never anything serious. Now, Mike Fleiss was “joking” about giving the villain his very own spinoff show, but was he really just teasing? Maybe there is much more to this and it’s going to be interesting to see where Mr. Protein Powder goes from here.
