Shannon Beador seemingly shades John Janssen’s ‘penis’ on ‘Family Feud’
Shannon Beador appears to have a clear idea of what would disqualify her ex-boyfriend John Janssen from being named the sexiest man alive. During their appearance on “Celebrity Family Feud,” where they competed against the ladies from “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” Beador subtly hinted at Janssen’s shortcomings, both in terms of physical attributes and bedroom skills. Host Steve Harvey asked Beador and her opponent, Drew Sidora, to name a part of their man that would eliminate him from being the sexiest man alive. Beador quickly buzzed in and confidently responded with “penis.” This provoked shocked reactions from Sidora and the rest of the cast, with Heather Dubrow visibly surprised by Beador’s bold answer. Beador, realizing the impact of her response, panicked and asked if it was a bad choice. Her co-star Emily Simpson expressed disappointment, while Harvey remarked on the unfortunate situation for Janssen to be discussed on national television. Beador clarified that she currently has no man, thereby deflecting any negative implications. The episode was filmed in April, several months after Janssen ended his nearly four-year relationship with Beador in November 2022. Beador only publicly announced the breakup in January, giving herself time to process the situation before sharing it with others. She explained that their constant arguments led to the split, but they were able to reconcile as friends after a few months of no contact. However, on the current season of “RHOC,” Beador has expressed frustration towards her castmates and the production team for bringing up her troubled relationship on camera. In a moment where she broke the fourth wall, Beador feared that the airing of their fights would ruin her relationship. She attributed her anxiety to Janssen’s preference for privacy. Last month, it was reported that Beador had a heated argument with Janssen’s daughter at a tiki bar while having drinks with Janssen and his family. Although photos showed security guards escorting an angry and intoxicated Beador out of the establishment, she insisted that she was not kicked out but rather asked security for assistance with her Uber.
Shannon Beador seems to know exactly what would prevent her ex-boyfriend John Janssen from earning the title of sexiest man alive.
While the “Real Housewives of Orange County” star and her castmates appeared on “Celebrity Family Feud” Sunday to compete against the ladies of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” Beador appeared to shade her former flame’s bulge — or perhaps his skills in the sack.
“Name a part of your man that eliminates him from being the sexiest man alive,” host Steve Harvey read off his cue card to Beador and opponent Drew Sidora, who were standing at their respective podiums, ready to buzz in their answers.
The “RHOC” star got to her buzzer first, leaned into the microphone and exclaimed, “Penis.”
A stunned Sidora let out a “What?!” as the camera panned to Beador’s co-star Heather Dubrow, whose eyes bulged as she looked on in disbelief.
Responding to the strong reactions around her, a panicked Beador put her hands up to her face and asked, “Was that bad?! What?!”
Her other co-star Emily Simpson could be heard mumbling a disappointed, “Shannon,” before a shocked Harvey added, “This poor man. On national TV!”
But Beador insisted, “There is no man right now, so we’re good!”
The episode was shot in April; Janssen dumped Beador in November 2022 after nearly four years of dating — and after filming for “RHOC” Season 17 had wrapped.
The heartbroken Bravolebrity did not publicize their breakup until January, which she said afforded her three months to “let it sink in before people knew.”

She later told TheFantasyTimes their constant “bickering” led to the split and that after a few months of no communication, they were able to reconcile as friends.
However, on the currently airing season of the Bravo reality show, Beador has gone off on her castmates as well as production for bringing up her seemingly rocky relationship on camera.
“This is gonna destroy everything. We’re done. My relationship is over if this is on the air,” she told the crew while breaking the fourth wall, going on to explain in a later episode, “I have normal fights with my boyfriend that paralyze me.”
Beador attributed her paranoia to Janssen being a “private” person.
Then last month, TheFantasyTimes broke the news that Beador had gotten into a “screaming” match with Janssen’s daughter at a tiki bar while having drinks with the insurance broker and his family.
Though photos of the ordeal showed security guards physically “removing” an angry and “wasted” looking Beador out of the establishment, she denied being “kicked out.”
“The lights were up, [and] they were saying, ‘Everybody wrap it up,’” she claimed on “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen” earlier this month.
“I wasn’t kicked out, but I asked security to help me with my Uber. That was it. … I absolutely was not kicked out.”
