Skyping into Jimmy Kimmel Live! following Monday's episode of the hit reality dating show, where we finally saw the last of Johnson for once and for all, the Oklahoma-based realtor did his best to defend himself for his antics this season – which included physical altercations with the other contestants and threats of violence.

"I actually didn't watch any of the episodes until about a week ago, and then I started to kind of realize when I watched the last one, like: 'Oh, that's why the people are saying the things online that they're saying,' " Johnson said. "That makes a little sense now."
