Johnny “Bananas” Devenanzio hasn’t been on The Challenge since his record seventh win on Total Madness but he’s kept active with his costars on social media and recently fired a shot at one of them, Nicole Zanatta, as the two traded humorous jabs on Twitter.
On April 29, Bananas posted a photo of NFL quarterback Trevor Lawrence who was recently selected first overall by the Jacksonville Jaguars. In his caption, he compared Nicole to the quarterback and wrote, “Congrats to @n_zanattaMTV for getting picked 1st overall in this years #NFLdraft @nfl @Trevorlawrencee.”

Nicole shared a screenshot of the last time Bananas made that joke, in 2019, when the seven-time champ wrote “Congrats to [Nicole] you’ve come a long way! From Ex on the Peak to the National Championship Game.” Nicole shared that screenshot and wrote, “Let’s not forget I’m about to be the first pick of 2021!”
In response to Bananas’ latest jab, Nicole wrote, “Don’t worry Johnny I’ll give you free tickets.” She also replied to a fan, “He’s not doing anything wrong I think @Trevorlawrencee is handsome as fcuk so if I’m the female Version I’m cool with that and I have a dope a$$ woman by my side… I’m winning.”
