Krystal “Meth” Johnson is the surprise packet of the HGMtv crew. She loves her fast cars, doing burnouts and riding her dirtbike. Emerging from a diesel mechanic greasepit in Kalgoorlie to step in front of a camera with a microphone I didn’t expect much from the petite blonde. We threw her to the lions while making the 2007 Narrogin Rev Heads DVD and she killed it, talking turkey with V8 addicts and totally upstaging a bunch of bikini girls.
So we gave her the job. First shoot is at Shane Townsends “Wasted Talent” compound and she overjumps the 55ft ramp, flatlands and breaks nine bones. Nearly all of us would be begging for our mums and asking to be dosed up on the strongest painkillers available. Not Krystal. She drives nearly 800kms to Kalgoorlie with broken ankles and wrists before seeing a docter who puts her straight back on a plane to Perth for a date with the surgeon and a couple of months in a wheelchair. That’s f*#cking hardcore!!
Krystal is everything our Homegrown Honeyz is all about- she’s sexy but doesn’t sit back and let the boys have all the fun. Instead she’s out their pushing the peddle to the metal and matching it with the boys all the way
