Character History

Season 10

In Hide and Seek (1), when Johnny's troubled ex-girlfriend, Alli Bhandari, runs away from home and seeks refuge in his college dorm room, she soon finds out that he has a girlfriend named Kayla. Johnny asks Kayla if she can show Alli how great university life is, so that she wouldn't throw her whole future away by running away to Vancouver. Kayla asks if Johnny could just call her brother Sav Bhandari, but Johnny tells her that Alli has to make the decision herself to go back home. Kayla asks if he wants her to go back home, and Johnny says he does, but can't just kick her out, as he was a cause for some of the problems. Kayla agrees to do the favor for him, but tells Johnny that he owes her with a smile. Johnny enlists Kayla's help in creating a disguise for Alli, as Kayla is a drama major. Kayla gives Alli the disguise of a blonde pony-tailed wig and huge pink sunglasses.


Kayla realizes that she has made a mistake by calling Alli a "problem".

Kayla later enters Johnny's room, asking if his "problem" had left yet. However, little to her knowledge, Alli was in the room, and this comment showed Alli that Johnny viewed her as a nuisance, which caused her to pack her things and leave for the bus station. Kayla and Johnny exchanged regretful glances as she left.


  • Kayla's surname was never revealed.
