Can a veteran Bachelorette bad boy find love -- or even redemption -- on a reality show? Chad Johnson, ABC’s notorious heartbreaker, sure hopes so, and he’s pinning his hopes on the E! series Famously Single. In the show’s second season, Johnson is cast alongside Dancing with the Stars pro-dancer Karina Smirnoff, Tiffany “New York” Pollard, Kardashian cohort Malika Haqq, Jersey Shore’s Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, fitness model David Mcintosh, #RichKids of Beverly Hills’ Dorothy Wang and British model and reality TV personality Calum Best (who returns for a second season). All undergo relationship counseling to find out why they’ve been so unlucky in love. None of the other cast members come with Johnson’s baggage though: Threats of violence had him famously fired from The Bachelorette, angry outbursts got him kicked out of Bachelor in Paradise, and an infamous guest appearance on Freeform’s Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After? also ended in disaster. (Ben Higgings and Lauren Bushnell had a lot to say about Johnson when MediaVillage.com interviewed them back in October.)
