Elizabeth isn’t the only Johnston embarking on a new journey, either. According to TV Shows Ace, family patriarch Trent has undergone a major career change. The former ground supervisor is now working as a car salesman, just like his son, Jonah. Fans are, to say the least, surprised because Jonah’s career as a car salesman has been a point of contention between him and his father. As Jonah worked towards moving out on his own, Trent continually reminded him that sales jobs can be unreliable and that his income would vary based on his performance. Trent announced his first car sale in an Instagram post (pictured above) on August 23, and fans immediately let him have it. “And they gave Jonah grief about this not being a steady income job?? Interesting,” wrote one commenter. “Hope it works out.” Another wrote, “I hope you apologized to Jonah.”
Not everybody attacked Trent, though. One fan came to his defense, writing, “All the people critici[z]ing, do any of you actually have children?” She continued, “They were rightly worried about Jonah relying on commission which is never guaranteed and just wanted him to have a realistic view of his budget. I would be exactly the same when my son (also called Jonah) is older …”
Since Trent is usually doing DIY home projects the job change is definitely unexpected but we can’t wait to see how it shakes out on-screen.
