If you were one of the many romantic hopefuls out there clinging to the possibility of Hannah Brown and Tyler Cameron getting their happily ever after one day, it’s time to give up on the dream. Maybe you were rooting for Tyler even when Hannah chose Jed Wyatt on The Bachelorette finale. Maybe you were still rooting for Tyler after he started dating Gigi Hadid just a couple days after spending the night with Hannah. Stranger things have happened, right?
As we get further and further from the finale, though, it’s seeming less and less likely one of The Bachelorette’s favorite couples will get back together. Hannah and Tyler have both made it pretty clear that they have moved on.
In August, Hannah revealed that she has “beef” with her former beau for the very public way he handled things when he moved on to Hadid. She seemed pretty fed up with the whole situation on the Bachelor Happy Hour podcast on August 7th, calling it, quote, “a little confusing” and reaffirming her independence.
She added that she still had feelings for him, but was unhappy with what he did, since he was so quick to step out with Hadid after being with her, and in such a public way. She said on the podcast that they, quote, “had conversations of both like knowing that there’s still something there.” She says that is one of the biggest reasons why it hurt when he moved on so quickly, especially since he did it in such an embarrassing, headline-making fashion.
Hannah told Extra on August 19th that she and Tyler weren’t even talking anymore. But despite the chill in their personal relationship, she still wished him well, saying,
“I think he’s been so busy. I’ve been so busy. I’m focusing on what’s next for me and trying to get my bearings around this new city that I’m living in.”
The former couple did, however, start talking again several days later, but don’t get your hopes up about a potential reignited romance between these two. Tyler said on the Bachelor Party podcast on August 27th that their reunion was for a completely platonic reason, saying,
“She reached out to me when my dad was sick. That was super sweet of her. She’s a great person.”
Tyler also added that “there’s no hard feelings” between him and Hannah, and that he wished her luck with her upcoming turn on Dancing With the Stars. But the drama wasn’t over. At the beginning of September, Tyler was accused of throwing shade at Hannah after liking a social media comment. Tyler took to Twitter on September 4th to clear up the confusion, writing,
“Someone DM’d me something that I liked a comment that said I was throwing shade at HB and I must say that is a complete accident. […] [Hannah] deserves no shade and nothing but success.”
Tyler continued to sing his ex’s praises in a subsequent tweet, writing,
“She empowers women and created so much conversation on how women should be treated. I am grateful for our time together and all that I learned from her.”
Tyler also said that he’s “way too grateful for any shade in [his] life” and that it’s “all love on [his] end.”
As of the making of this video, Tyler’s relationship with Gigi Hadid seems to be going strong, further diminishing the chances that he and Hannah will get back together any time soon. As for Hannah, it looks like she’s focusing on herself and devoting her energy to winning Dancing With the Stars. She wrote on an Instagram post on September 9th,
“I’m 100% freaking the freak out, but I’m so grateful and excited for the opportunity to challenge myself and continue this journey of self-exploration.”
In another Instagram post the next day, Hannah made no secret of the fact that she’s in it to win it, writing,
“I’m looking for a win on reality TV… maybe the third time’s a charm?”
While Hannah and Tyler might not be getting a happily ever after together, we’ve got to admire Hannah’s resilience, as well as her determination to live her best life.
