However, he insisted that the show helped him face his vulnerabilities and develop as a person as he said, “It shows us being vulnerable. It shows us saying, ‘Hey, you like nice today. This looks good on you.’ That’s OK for a man to say that.”
A few episodes into the competition, Johnny was selected to be the most charismatic dancer and even given a partner to perform with. He was quick to pick up challenging choreographies and paid extreme attention to the audience while performing.
