Johnson has become arguably the breakout personality of season 12, with viewers picking sides as he butted heads with nearly all of his fellow housemates before Bachelorette JoJo Fletcher gave him the boot on a two-on-one date during the Tuesday, June 7, episode.

The muscular hothead, who causes additional drama during his upcoming stint on Bachelor in Paradise season 3, would not be the first member of Bachelor Nation to land a spinoff. Us Weekly exclusively announced last month that engaged Bachelor season 20 couple Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell are getting a new series, Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After, that will air on the Freeform network this fall.
