Will Tyler C.'s Date With Gigi Hadid Take Him Out Of The Bachelor 2020 Race?
The Bachelor 2020 race just got a lot trickier, Bachelor Nation. While Tyler Cameron, everyone's favorite potential Bachelor from Hannah Brown's recently completed, controversy-filled season, has been at the forefront of speculation and fan love when it comes to who might be the next Bachelor, it looks like his romantic life might be more complicated than Bachelor producers would like.
Last week's finale gave fans hope that Tyler and Hannah might reconnect as more than friends, and before the week was out, Tyler was seen coming out of her place in Los Angeles during the early morning and with an overnight bag. On top of that? Well, after Tyler flew back to his current home of New York, he was spotted hanging out with supermodel Gigi Hadid.
So, what does this mean for Tyler's chances of becoming our next Bachelor in 2020? According to Bachelor franchise host with the most, Chris Harrison, all this dating around might, indeed, take Tyler out of the running.
Well, alrighty then, Chris Harrison. Tell it like it is.
Considering the number of scandals that The Bachelor and The Bachelorette have seen over people either getting on the show while still having a significant other at home, or breaking up just to go on the show, it makes total sense that Bachelor producers would not, at least, want the lead to be having the time of his life dating up a storm right before becoming the next Bachelor.
As Chris Harrison told Entertainment Tonight, nabbing the lead position on either series is "about sincerity" and "where you are in your life." So, if Tyler would rather date around, that's cool, obviously, since he's still a single guy. But, if he does have his heart set on being our dreamy, possibly-too-good-to-be-true Bachelor 2020, he'll need to calm way down with all the overnight visits here and dates with famous supermodels there.
Of course, if Tyler really is the man we all fell in love...ahem, I mean, respect from Hannah's season of The Bachelorette, then it seems like he'd be totally upfront with producers about his intentions, should they offer the next season of The Bachelor to him in a few weeks.
Speaking of which, Chris Harrison also confirmed that Peter "Windmill" Weber and Mike Johnson, two other fan favorites from Hannah's season, are still in the running for the position of Bachelor 2020, and said that the next lead will be announced near the end of the next Bachelor in Paradise season.
In case you're wondering what Hannah thinks of Tyler's time with Gigi Hadid just a couple of days after he spent some quality time with her, turns out she's not worried about it. Here's what she told ET:
See, folks? All good; no controversy here. The only thing we really need is for our Tyty to be honest if the Bachelor producers come to call on him for the next season. If he decides to just hang out and explore his dating options with the many lovely women who are sure to be sliding into him DMs (or accidentally-on-purpose sliding into him in real life), he should just say so. Tyler seems to be one of the few high profile Bachelorette suitors who appears to be trouble-free, and we need him to stay that way whether he ends up being the Bachelor or not.
You can keep up with some of your other Bachelor Nation favorites Mondays on ABC with Bachelor in Paradise, which begins Season 6 tonight at 8 p.m. EST.
