If you were bummed that Mike Johnson got passed over to be the next Bachelor, first of all, same. But, good news: It seems like he’s going to be just fine after all, at least if the rumors that Demi Lovato and Mike Johnson’s reported date went really well are true. Yep, that’s right, sources are telling E! News that the two reportedly met face to face and their IRL connection was "instant." I’m not freaking out, you’re freaking out.
While this rumored romance is unfortunately not being televised (would totally watch that show, by the way), a source reportedly offered E! News an inside scoop on this budding romance. According to the insider, Lovato and Johnson reportedly recently met up for a dinner date in Los Angeles, and he reportedly had her "laughing the entire date," which the source confirmed Lovato "loves." The source also reportedly revealed that Lovato reportedly felt instant chemistry with Johnson. "She has always had a huge crush on Mike and once they met in person, there was an instant connection." Aww, I don’t know about you but I’m just so glad to finally see Johnson get the love and appreciation all of Bachelor Nation has known he deserves all along.
If that’s not enough to get excited about, the same source says this date is likely just the start of these two heating up. "They have plans to see each other again soon and Demi is really excited about it," the insider revealed to E!.
Those paying attention to either Lovato’s or Johnson’s social media won’t be surprised that these two have a connection, as they have done a little high-key flirting publicly and online. It all started with Lovato making it clear who her favorite was while Johnson’s season was airing, saying "Mike I accept your rose" on her Insta story.
Word got back to Johnson that he had a famous fan and he was flattered, telling E! "It made me feel sexy… It made me feel good. It’s pretty awesome; it’s pretty cool, I’m not gonna deny it." Adding he wasn’t intimidated by the thought of meeting up with Lovato in person. "She is still a human being, just like I am, and if we were to meet up I’m not gonna be giddy at all. I’m [going to be like] ‘What’s up, sexy? You got a nice little booty on you. Let’s talk," he said. Johnson reiterated his fandom for Lovato’s bum when she posted an unedited photo of her showing off her assets on Instagram. She posted the photo as way of publicly embracing her body. "I’m just literally sooooo tired of being ashamed of my body, editing it (yes the other bikini pics were edited—and I hate that I did that but it’s the truth) so that others think I’m THEIR idea of what beautiful is, but it’s just not me. This is what I got," wrote Lovato. The post won her the praise and support of fans including Johnson who left a flirty comment on the pic. "Look at me like that again … Love yourself," wrote Johnson, which earned him a kissy emoji in response. The rest, it seems, is history.

This is my biggest fear. A photo of me in a bikini unedited. And guess what, it’s CELLULIT!!!! I’m just literally sooooo tired of being ashamed of my body, editing it (yes the other bikini pics were edited – and I hate that I did that but it’s the truth) so that others think I’m THEIR idea of what beautiful is, but it’s just not me. This is what I got. I want this new chapter in my life to be about being authentic to who I am rather than trying to meet someone else’s standards. So here’s me, unashamed, unafraid and proud to own a body that has fought through so much and will continue to amaze me when I hopefully give birth one day. It’s such a great feeling to be back in tv/film while not stressing myself with a strenuous workout schedule before 14 hour days, or depriving myself from a real birthday cake rather than opting for watermelon & whip cream with candles because I was terrified of REAL cake and was miserable on some crazy diet shit. Anyway, here’s me, RAW, REAL! And I love me. And you should love you too! Now back to the studio.. I’m working on an anthem.. ??????♀️ also. Just so everyone’s clear.. I’m not stoked on my appearance BUT I am appreciative of it and sometimes that’s the best I can do. I hope to inspire someone to appreciate their body today too. ? #nationalcelulliteday #celluLIT ???
As for what the future holds for these two, only time will tell, but it doesn’t seem like Lovato is trying to rush into anything. As the source explained to E!, "Demi is not looking for anything serious right now but is staying open and is excited to see Mike again." Needless to say, I am rooting for these two and I can’t wait to see what happens next.
