Chad Johnson may have gotten kicked off of Bachelor in Paradise almost as soon as he arrived, but that doesn’t mean he’s done speaking his mind about it.

The notorious reality star – infamous for wreaking havoc on JoJo Fletcher‘s season of The Bachelorette, followed by a disastrous stint in Paradise – appeared on Tuesday’s episode of After Paradise, the one-hour live after show that follows Tuesday’s BiP.

“To be honest, I drank a lot,” he admitted when the discussion turned to his shocking behavior during the premiere, which included hurling insults at his female cast members and making several threats to “kill” his costars.

Of his short-lived fling with Lace Morris, Johnson said things were going well until she allegedly turned on him.

“I thought me and Lace were on the same team and eventually if I did get too drunk, she’d say something like ‘Just go to bed,’ ” he said. “But there was unfortunately in the middle of that whole scenario a weird stopping point in which she started to be more aware of what people thought than what was happening with us.”

When Morris joined the discussion on After Paradise, Johnson accused her of changing her mind about him because of how the rest of the group felt.

“You were laughing and you were loving it,” he said.

“At times I was, but then you started getting a little aggressive,” Morris responded. “It was too much.”

Johnson went on to claim Morris “flipped a switch,” to which she said: “Because you started shoving me!”

“You realized you would rather have Bachelor Nation and all the other contestants on your side,” he fired back.

Ultimately, Morris refused to engage any further, telling Johnson: “I’m not going to argue with you.”

“I’m not arguing with you,” Johnson replied. “I’m talking at you, more than talking with you.”

When a caller asked if Johnson should get a second chance at reality TV, Morris shook her head.

“No, Chad does not deserve to be back on any sort of Bachelor show again,” she said.

And on top of his drama with Morris, Johnson had another female cast member to address his behavior with: Sarah Herron, whom he called a “one-armed bitch” the first night in Paradise.

“I do want to clear that up. I obviously feel really bad,” Johnson admitted. “That’s something she can’t control, I mean, a person with a disability – that is super messed-up.”

And while he confessed to being the guy “with no filter” who says things he “probably shouldn’t say,” Johnson alleged Herron had been “following” him around.

“What happened and what was not aired is that literally she followed me around the entire day, telling me what I could and could not say,” Johnson claimed. “People would crowd around, I would talk to them, I’d make jokes – all of a sudden she’s offended, tells me what I can’t say. I’d be talking to a girl, she’d be 50 ft. away listening – why is she listening in the first place? – telling me what I can and can’t say.”

Herron eventually joined Johnson on the live after show and said the ordeal was “painful” for her. Johnson then apologized face to face.

“Look, I mean, I am sorry,” he said. “I should absolutely never have said that. I did not want to say anything like that. … And I’m telling you now – for the first seven, eight hours, I didn’t even notice.”

Herron accepted the apology – but here’s to hoping Johnson is officially done with reality TV.

Bachelor in Paradise airs Mondays and Tuesdays (8 p.m. ET), and After Paradise airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET, both on ABC.
