‘The Challenge’ star Johnny Bananas revealed he almost became a part of ‘Bachelor in Paradise.’ In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight the reality star opened up about how he was supposed to be a part of the famous show. 

Johnny Bananas said ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ has a conflicting schedule

The 41-year-old said about the show, “I was this close to going on Paradise, but it was a conflicting schedule. It was almost like the risk-reward wasn’t enough. I ended up choosing The Challenge… over potentially being the next Bachelor if I went on Bachelor in Paradise and held it down. But I kind of missed that boat. Who knows, maybe they’ll come knocking again.”

Moreover, he cheekily responded how it’d look like to see him date 25 women at once. “If you knew what I did in my normal life [it would be] kind of similar to that, just in a much more enclosed environment. Yeah, sorry Mom and Dad,” he said. “They’re like, ‘When are you gonna settle down and get married?’ I’m like, ‘I don’t know. How much time do I got?'”

Later on, he revealed why he stand out in the 2006 reality show Real World: Key West. “I think that’s what they cast me for. I think that was kind of the persona that they cast me for,” Bananas said. “… They wanted to pigeonhole me into being a frat guy and, like, no offense to any frat boys or ladies out there, but that was just never my gag.”

He continues, “I was just coming out of college. I was 23 years old, just burning the candle at both ends. I literally went directly from college onto The Real World. I have not had a real job in 18 years now, to the dismay of my parents… I’ve managed to turn 15 minutes [of fame] into 18 years and counting.”

Although he was eliminated first from the show Real World/Road Rules Challenge: The Duel, he admitted he learned a “valuable lesson” that “it was just to not take things for granted.”

Needless to say, his career indeed stands out in spite of many failures.
