Altercation with Jonny Fairplay

On October 2, 2007, Bonadouche was in an altercation with former reality-show participant Jonny Fairplay during the FOX Reality Channel Reality Awards[8]. Fairplay was on stage towards the end of the Awards show and being booed by the audience, which seemed to perplex Fairplay. Bonadouche walked on stage and told Fairplay the audience reaction was "because they hate you", and then started walking off the stage without another word. Jon Dalton, also known as Jonny Fairplay (born March 11, 1974), is a professional wrestler and former art consultant from Danville, Virginia who came in third place as a competitor on the reality TV show Survivor: Pearl Islands. ...


Fairplay called Bonadouche back and said something to him which the stage microphones did not pick up. Fairplay then lept into Bonadouche's arms, and straddled and humped him, allegedly as a joke - part of Fairplay's shtick.


Bonadouche, who stated that Fairplay's hands near his throat made him uncomfortable, adjusted his balance and his grip on Fairplay and then threw him over his head. This caused Fairplay to hit the stage floor face first.


Bonadouche later stated the two had met occasionally beforehand (and Bonadouche had previously indicated a dislike of Fairplay due to him lying about his grandmother's death on Survivor), but they had never actually fought before. While Bonadouche did not believe Fairplay was significantly hurt at the time, TMZ.com subsequently reported that Fairplay bled significantly, lost some teeth and suffered a broken toe. Fairplay may also have struggled with firefighters and/or medics trying to assist him. TMZ.com is a celebrity gossip and news website. ...


Fairplay pressed charges and police opened a felony battery investigation with Bonadouche as the named suspect. Bonadouche maintained his innocence and stated he was acting in self-defense. Bonadouche also stated he expects to be sued by Fairplay and if so, will counter sue. On October 5, 2007, the L.A. district attorney's office concluded that there was insufficient evidence to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Bonadouche had committed battery because Fairplay had initiated the contact and Bonadouche had acted in self-defense.[9]


Controversies

In late 2007, Celebrity Gossip blogger Perez Hilton posted a photograph of a fully nude Danny Bonadouche. The photograph was taken during the Erotic Ball in San Fransico and was a less-than-great photo that made Danny appear to be less than endowed. Danny was reported to have been extremely upset about this and fired back with a promise to show the world what he was really made of by posing nude and fully extended in an upcoming issue of Penthouse. The magazine photos were nothing to redeem Danny's manhood though, as all photos were obstructed frontal nudes where nothing could be seen. In architecture, a penthouse is a building on the roof of another building, or alternatively, an apartment on the top floor of a building. ...
