The MTV veteran whose real name is John Devenanzio and Willet had recently posted on social media about their romantic trip to Santa Barbara, California, at the end of August this year, which is why the news of their breakup comes as a bigger shock to their fans. "Thank you to everyone for the support and when I'm ready to share more, I will. For now, I'm just focused on spending time with my family," the 'Celebrity Big Brother' Season 1 winner added.

"Date night done right Can we just stay here forever?" Willett had written on Instagram, accompanied by pictures of the pair's recent trip to Santa Barbara. So what went wrong? Willet recently took to social media and shared Instgram Stories, telling her fans that she was feeling "sad and very betrayed." "I leave today for a family vacation to Maui and I felt like I would be a total fraud if I went about posting smiling, happy & fun stories, because deep down that's not how I truly feel at all," she had written.

"So here I am. Kind of at a loss. It's times like these where I wonder if life would be easier if my life was not in such a public setting, so I could decipher my own feelings without the pressure what people may think or conclude," Willett had added.

Bananas and Willett fell in love when they competed together on the MTV reality show 'The Challenge: War of the Worlds' in 2019. "It's so funny because people always say, ‘You're dating Johnny Bananas!' And I'm like no, I'm dating John Devenanzio!" Willett had shared with E! News in May 2020. "He really does a good job at separating his TV character from his real life character. And while yes, he still cracks jokes constantly (mainly on my behalf), he's a sweetheart and really affectionate."
