During the Season 20 premiere, audiences see John using his time with Charity to talk about his family. In fact, he singles out his sister, who is six years older than him.

“I’m very protective of her, and she’s protective of me,” John tells Charity while having a private conversation during the first episode. “She isn’t blinded by love like I might be… and she’s the only one who’s like, talked sense into me.”

His sister Kristin Lehman has a private Instagram, and as of 2023, John doesn't have any photos of her on his Instagram. However, they are clearly close, as the happily married mother of two describes herself in a June 1, 2023 Facebook post as "the best hype sister."
