Alex Johnson’s Journey of Self-Reflection Post-Split with Rachel Smith

One year after parting ways with Rachel Smith, Alex Johnson takes us through the lessons he’s learned from his past relationship.

“The public scrutiny was intense, and I had to face the music,” Johnson, 30, revealed in an exclusive interview on the “Talk It Out Podcast” on Saturday, September 23. “But I believe in owning up to your mistakes and growing from them.”

Alex Johnson was a prominent figure on Rachel Smith’s season 19 of The Bachelorette, co-hosted by Chris Davis. He made quite an impression by receiving the coveted first impression rose and eventually proposing to Smith during the gripping season finale that aired in September 2022. However, their engagement hit a rough patch, leading to a temporary separation, during which Johnson was photographed in the company of another woman.

“I didn’t necessarily think we were on an official break, but I felt it was essential to be honest with her,” Johnson admitted during the podcast. “I was aware of certain things that had transpired during the show, and I believed that honesty was the foundation for a potential future together.”

Johnson confessed that he grappled with whether his actions constituted as cheating, particularly since Smith had returned her engagement ring during their self-imposed “space break.”

In hindsight, Johnson now characterizes his behavior as “toxic,” recognizing that he should have allowed himself time to heal before embarking on a new romantic endeavor so soon after their breakup.

“I can clearly see the missteps I took now,” he shared during the podcast, acknowledging that therapy played a pivotal role in his personal growth. “I’m not offering excuses for my actions; they were regrettable. I should have taken a step back for self-reflection.”

After Johnson came clean about the kiss to Smith, she made the painful decision to call off their engagement once and for all.

Since parting ways with the reality TV star, Alex Johnson has remained single. Meanwhile, Smith is gearing up for another shot at love as she prepares to grace the screens of Bachelor in Paradise season 9, scheduled to premiere on Thursday, September 28.

“She deserves happiness, and maybe that happiness will be found in someone else,” Johnson remarked during the podcast, predicting that Smith would discover her ideal partner “in a few years when the public spotlight isn’t as intense.”
