The 2 Johnnies: Johnny B spills all about his girlfriend, trolling, dating and living at home | #tinder | #pof

Johnny B had opened up about his girlfriend saying that they met online after they got chatting in his DM’s.

However, the content creator, who is one half on The 2 Johnnies, has remained coy about her identity because she is not used to the world of television and social media.

The lads are currently starring on their own RTÉ2 show, The 2 Johnnies Do America.

Lifting the lid on his love life, Johnny told RSVP Live: “I am dating at the moment, yes. And I have high hopes for this relationship.”

The Tipperary man added that he doesn’t mind talking about her or delving into his personal life as long it ties in with their podcast.

Johnny said: “We are not afraid to share and we do let people into our lives when it is relevant to what we are talking about.

“I say things about my personal life but I need to give her a chance to get used to it because she is not a celebrity and she doesn’t work in showbiz.”

But how did they meet? “We met online, through DM’s.”

A number of Irish influencers and bloggers have said that they received unsolicited nude pictures online in the past but Johnny said that he and his co-star and close pal Smacks have escaped that.

“We don’t get as many ti**y pictures as we would like,” he joked. “Johnny Smacks said on the podcast that I was single and I got some messages.

“Now, listeners know that I am seeing someone and they have been quite respectful of that and the DM’s have dropped off.”

Johnny has never used online dating in the past but that never stopped people from setting up fake accounts impersonating him.

He said: “I never went on Tinder.

“There was a fake account going around for a while but they used some good photos of me so I didn’t mind too much.

“It was a bit of craic so it didn’t bother me.”

Johnny B and Johnny Smacks have also escaped trolling online for the most part.

He explained: “The only time people say anything negative is on Twitter, maybe it is because they think we won’t see it. We are human and there is no need for it.

“If you have constructive criticism you can write to us but, to be honest, people are just arseholes sometimes.

“Do you think Johnny Sexton is reading the comments under his YouTube videos? No, he is too busy out there being number one.”

They are both still living in the town of Cahir in the premier county and they have no plans to swap life in Munster for the capital due the high costs and the fantastic studio they have created at home.

Johnny said: “We both still live on the edge of town in Cahir. It is not a country house, don’t be getting carried away.

“But we have a shed that we use for filming and we converted the front room into a podcast studio. We are very lucky and that is why we stayed living in Tipperary.

“We considered moving to Dublin early in our career but there would have been too many distractions and we would have been having the craic at events eight nights a week.

“Dublin is so expensive and a lot of the people we know are bet into apartments and sharing bedrooms. Whereas rent is pretty cheap here in Tipperary and that takes the pressure off.

“We have proper soundproofing for recording our podcast and we also film it on our set. Production values are very important to us and we wouldn’t be the kind of guys who would go into a cafe and just lay a recorder down on a table.”

Johnny said that he doesn’t think they missed out on much while away from the social hub in Dublin.

“We missed out on a lot of free prosecco, yeah,” he joked. “We didn’t know where we were going when we started and we saw all of these people at cool events and we thought maybe we should also be there.

“We are not really bloggers or influencers, we don’t blog our day to day lives. First and foremost we are podcasters comedians and we spend our time making content and writing songs.

“We do enjoy Dublin and hopefully we can get back to one of our favourite pastimes when this all ends, which is getting lost there. Dublin is like quicksand, you can get in but it is hard to get out.”

And, finally, who is his hero? “I always liked Michael Flatley, he is a really driven guy and I heard he is worth over €100 million.”
