Johnny Bananas has been a fixture on MTV’s The Challenge for 20 seasons because of his big personality, his skillful gameplay, and his love for targeting players he doesn’t like. The one thing the six-time winner doesn’t do very much on the show is talk about his relationship status, but he actually has an interesting dating history.

Johnny Bananas and Hannah Teter

For five years, Devenanzio was in a serious relationship with a woman he called “Hannah,” and it turns out that the mysterious Hannah is Olympic snowboarder and gold medalist Hannah Teter.

According to Yahoo in 2018, Johnny Bananas and Hannah Teter were even targeted by Celebrity Jihad, who released a sex tape that they claimed starred the couple. Neither Bananas nor Teter ever commented on the tape, but fans of The Challenge claim that the person in the video appears to be sporting Johnny Banana’s tattoos.

The relationship lasted from 2012 to 2017, and on Vendettas he mentioned their breakup.

“This is the first Challenge I’ve come on as a single man. The Banana has left his bunch,” he said during his confessional. “Me and my girlfriend for five years called it quits. So here I am: single and naked as the day I was born.”

Behind his hookups on ‘The Challenge’

Bananas has also hooked up with other Challenge contestants, including Camila Nakagawa, who he won the Battle of the Exes with in 2012 after they had a brief hookup on Cutthroat. Johnny and Camila seemed like an odd match from the beginning, he seems pretty laid back and Camila is known to fans of The Challenge for her extreme freakouts, usually while heavily intoxicated. In fact, rumor has it that Johnny only hooked up with Camila to keep her happy on Battle of the Exes.

Johnny Bananas also had a fling with Nany Gonzalez, his partner on the second Battle of the Exes season. Their pairing up came as a surprise to even the biggest fans of The Challenge, who assumed they had always just been friends.

On a War of the Worlds after show, Nany finally confirmed their more than platonic relationship and why it ended.

“[We] just started talking. I was living in Arizona and he’s in Southern California. So we just had this cool relationship… it is what it is.” She did say it was more than platonic but did not give details about how serious they got.

After a little while, “I cut him off and stopped talking to him because I didn’t trust him. Then, he and I didn’t speak or see each other until our first season of The Challenge together, which was Rivals 2.”

Johnny Bananas and Morgan Willett

Bananas and Big Brother winner Morgan Willett seemingly got together after War of the Worlds. After their elimination, the duo traveled the world together. Willett said it was nice getting to know someone outside of the reality TV world.

After two years together, the couple was confirmed to have split in 2021. One week after the breakup was announced, Willett claimed that her former partner had cheated on her.
