Mike Johnson was a huge fan favorite for the new season of The Bachelor. However, he didn’t get the gig. Now, he’s talking about Peter Weber and the famous ‘windmill’ scene he had with Hannah Brown.
Mike Johnson says he could’ve done better
Apparently, Mike Johnson doesn’t judge Peter for what happened in the windmill. Instead, he says he could do better. According to Us Weekly, he says that his stamina is better than Peter so he could’ve gone more rounds.
“I’m in better shape and my stamina is longer and that’s where it lies,” Mike says about the situation.
Whether that’s true or not, its a pretty funny situation. It’s also great that Mike can joke around with someone that beat him out for the role that he really wanted. That just goes to prove even more what a great guy Mike Johnson is. He honestly deserves the world. He will just have to get it off camera like the rest of us.
Mike wanted to be The Bachelor
Besides just talking about that day in the windmill, Mike did also open up on who they did choose for the Bachelor this next season. While he wanted the role, and would’ve taken it on, he says they made a good choice with Peter the Pilot.
“I think I would have made a really good Bachelor. I would have been the first black Bachelor, as well as the first veteran Bachelor. ABC made a great choice with Peter — that’s who they decided to go with. I’m a phenomenal man and still am. The point of going on The Bachelorette was to find love, and that opportunity is still there for me.”
This crushed the heart of a lot of Bachelor fans that were ready to see Mike get to take the stage this next season.
Hopefully, Mike can still find love even though he won’t be the star of The Bachelor. After all, he has piqued the interest of Demi Lovato. The two may even be talking after a little bit of flirtatious chatter on Instagram. There’s no denying they would be an AMAZING couple.
