We may not have heard much from The Bachelorette’s Chad Johnson lately (frankly, we wouldn’t have been shocked to see him added to the Bachelor in Paradise season four cast), but that doesn’t mean the notorious villain isn’t right in on the action. Johnson is not only keeping himself fully informed about the current (two-timing, Magic Mike-like) on-screen situation, but also revealing some surprising relationship news of his own.

The Bachelor Nation standout is off the market. That’s right, he’s currently dating model Zoe Baron. “We’ve been dating off and on I think two or three months, and [became] official I think two weeks ago,” he revealed to ET, saying that the two met when Baron emailed him for fitness advice. From there, a date led to sparks between the two, who are apparently livin’ up the NRE vibe.

The dude who vied for JoJo Fletcher’s heart on season 12 of The Bachelorette admits, “On a scale of one to happy, I’m happy.”

While we’re thrilled for Johnson and Baron, we have to wonder if this means that the villain’s on-screen mischief-making ways are done. Well, it’s a pretty safe bet to say NOPE, as the 28-year-old will be featured as part of the Famously Single cast this season, which just happens to premiere tomorrow, June 9, on E!

Maybe the fact that he’s dating Baron means that the show did its magic and he’s finally changed his villainous ways. We’ll just have to watch and see!

What do you think about the fact that Chad Johnson is in a relationship now? Let us know @BritandCo!
