Hannah Brown, Tyler Cameron, Gigi Hadid's Love Triangle: Everything We Know

posted in: Entertainment News | 0

Where are the cameras when Bachelor Nation needs them? Hannah Brown and her Bachelorette runner-up, Tyler Cameron, found themselves in a high-profile love triangle with Gigi Hadid after the show ended.

The supermodel first expressed interest in Cameron after he made his debut on season 15 of The Bachelorette in May 2019. The two followed each other on Instagram two months later, setting Twitter ablaze with disappointment over a potential hookup.

Brown, for her part, called it quits with the general contractor during the July 2019 finale. She instead accepted a proposal from Jed Wyatt.

The couple’s engagement crumbled after the singer’s ex-girlfriend Haley Stevens came forward with allegations in June that Wyatt, who hoped the exposure would boost his music career, was still in a relationship with her when he left to film the reality show and intended to resume their romance upon his return. Brown, in turn, broke up with her fiancé over the phone before the live finale.

The former Miss Alabama USA embraced her newly single status by asking out Cameron during the After the Final Rose portion of the finale. He agreed to meet her for drinks, and, as Us Weekly exclusively revealed, the pair followed through with the date days later.

Hadid was still on the fellow model’s radar, though. He jetted from Brown’s home in Los Angeles to New York City, where the Victoria’s Secret runway star resides, to go on multiple dates in the same week.

The Bachelor alum reacted to her ex’s love connection by making jokes and referring to herself as single. Cameron, meanwhile, remained tight-lipped about his new romance, though he was spotted leaving Hadid’s apartment the morning after their second date.

Before pursuing the reality star, Hadid dated Zayn Malik on and off. The duo were first linked in November 2015. Us confirmed in January 2019 that they split again.

Ms. Steal Back Her Man

Brown asked out Cameron during the July 30 live finale of The Bachelorette. “You’re an incredible guy, and I’m a single girl,” she said as the audience cheered. “I just thought maybe we could go for a drink and just hang out.” Her ex was on board with the proposition. “I would love to,” he replied. “Just tell me when. I’m there.”

Just Friends?

Cameron opened up about his willingness to reconnect with the former pageant queen after she broke up with him. “I value and cherish our relationship and our friendship and that’s something I don’t wanna just cut off cold turkey because it didn’t work out,” he explained during a July 31 appearance on the “Viall Files” podcast, adding: “[She’s] someone I would hope to have a drink with and see what happens and take it one step at a time.”

New Lady

Ariana Vibes

Brown tried to play it cool after news broke of her runner-up’s date with the model. “Single life is great. I’m keeping my options open,” she told Us exclusively on August 5. “[I’m] more so focused on filling my cup as a single woman and my opportunities moving forward, and that doesn’t mean with a man.”

The former Bachelorette later quoted Ariana Grande, telling Us: “I’m not going to talk about Tyler or any of that stuff. Thank you, next.”

Overnight Date

Cameron and Hadid’s second date took place at Frames Bowling Lounge in New York City on August 5. “Tyler and Gigi were laughing together and she would touch his arm while she was laughing,” an insider told Us. The source added that the pair “looked flirty the entire night and they were clearly focused on one another.” He was spotted leaving her apartment the following morning.

Somewhat Scorned

Brown made light of the situation by having fun with Single Parents star Tyler Wladis. “Wrong Tyler, I’m your guy,” the child actor wrote via his Instagram Story on August 6. In the video, the TV personality said, “Did you know something? That he went on a date with a supermodel? Yeah. But, you know, I didn’t pick him!”

The Alabama native later admitted during the August 7 episode of the “Bachelor Happy Hour” podcast that Cameron “has every right to do whatever he wants because we were just, you know, hanging out, seeing where it goes. And I am completely fine with that.” However, she called his date with Hadid “confusing” and noted that she wished she “would’ve got a little bit more than two days” before he moved on.
