90 Day Fiancé: Ella Reveals Major Weight Loss & Relationship Update

Former 90 Day Fiancé franchise star Ella Johnson has recently revealed that she has lost 25 pounds and has split from Johnny Chao. The 30-year-old reality star is known for her appearance in 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days season 5, during which she pursued the 34-year-old single father, Johnny. The couple didn't have a compatible relationship on the show, as the two only interacted through online calls and never really met. Besides, viewers felt the pair had no chemistry due to their cultural differences and long-distance romance. During the season, the Idaho native awaited Johnny's arrival in the United States, which never happened due to pandemic restrictions.


During the Tell-All, fans learned that Ella had cheated on her Asian partner because he never made it to America, and she felt alone. Still, the duo ended the season together in hopes of starting fresh. Apart from relationship troubles, Ella has also struggled because of her health issues. During the introduction segment, she opened up about being overweight since childhood and being treated terribly in her past relationships. That's why she fell in love with Johnny, who promised to support her in losing weight. During the show, Ella said her goal was to drop 20 pounds before her Chinese lover arrived in the United States.

90 Day Fiancé franchise alum Ella has now shared a massive update about her relationship status and fitness journey. In her recent Instagram post, she talked about how TLC has permitted her to clear up any confusion online. She said it breaks her heart to reveal that her relationship with Johnny has ended. Ella then claimed that despite what fans may think, her relationship with him was "real," adding that she cared about him but had to end things because she couldn't wait for him to come. She also talked about how Johnny still plans to visit America, and she supports his decision. Ella is currently focusing on herself and has already lost 25 pounds.

While many 90 Day Fiancé viewers had already anticipated the split, they shared positive comments for Ella on her post. An Instagram user thanked Ella for opening up and wrote, "I'm sad that you two aren't seeing each other anymore, but glad that you decided to do what's best for you!" Another user left encouraging words and commented, "Don't let anyone get you down. You are a beautiful young lady and deserve to find your forever happiness." Johnny also chimed in, "Congrats for your weight loss, you deserve better man good luck and best wish." Ella has still not replied to him, which could mean many things.

Ella is a young woman who could easily find a much more suitable man for herself with common interests in America. While Johnny is a great man, he has a family to support in China. If the duo had decided to continue, one of them would have had to make massive sacrifices for the other, which isn't the best for any relationship. That's why fans are happy the couple is moving on, as their long-distance relationship never made sense. 90 Day Fiancé viewers are glad that Ella is focusing on her health, as it will help her feel better physically and mentally.
