"I see that he played his role very well. He did a good job," Johnson said of the former NFL player
“You know, probably not,” he tells PEOPLE, before hedging, “I don’t want to rule anything out.”
This as a follow-up to a typically mischievous Johnson response: “I’ll bring him some candies!”
Since “The Chad” watched Rodgers, 27, accept the final rose from Bachelorette JoJo Fletcher, the 28-year-old luxury real estate agent said of his nemesis: “I see that he played his role very well. He did a good job.”
Johnson says of Rodgers’ camera-ready personality: “When I watched that finale I was like, ‘It looks good! Good job guys.’ ”
He continues, “When you’re there and when you see it in person, that’s when you’re like, ‘C’mon man.’ ”
Those same cameras are no longer quite as accepting of Johnson, whose time on Bachelor in Paradise was cut short after just one day in Mexico. He’ll plead his case for host Chris Harrison to let him stay when episode 2 airs Monday at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
