On this week's episode of The Bachelorette, viewers watched with excitement as Hannah told Cam off.
Sick of his games (and stupid catchphrases), Brown called this annoying suitor out as followers:
“This just feels really schemey and slimy to me. It just feels really, really calculated. I’m having a hard time right now and I need to think about it.”
She then sent Cam packing during the weekly Rose Ceremony.
But while fans were psyched to see Cam go (and basically shrugged at the release of Jonathan and Joey), they were left perplexed by a departure they did NOT see.
Toward the end of the episode, ABC basically just informed us that Tyler Gwozdz "had to leave" -- and that was it.
Hannah claimed his exit was very "upsetting because I really enjoyed my date with him," but she then changed the subject and viewers were left to wonder what could have transpired.
If it was something scandalous or salacious, the network would have showed Tyler's blowing up or being scolded or... something, right?
The series exists simply to depict drama.
“So we’re just going to breeze right by the fact that Tyler G. left without explanation #TheBachelorette,” one fan asked, while another shared Kris Jenner’s famous This is a case for the FBI GIF, writing along with it:
“Me trying to find out why Tyler G went home with no explanation #TheBachelorette.”
The FBI... or Reality Steve, that is.
According to the guru of all The Bachelorette spoilers, producers pulled Tyler aside during a group date and told him it was a bad idea for him to remain on the show.
Reality Steve doesn't go into much detail himself about what happened, but confirms that higher-ups did speak to some of Tyler "exes" and were disturbed by what they were told.
He also theorizes that Hannah herself was probably provided with the details behind Tyler's abrupt departure.
Elsewhere, an anonymous Reddit user claimed that Tyler G was an "extreme misogynist," saying two friends from high school said he was the "biggest assh-le douche of all time."
"Posting this from a throwaway account because I’m an active poster and don’t want this tied to my account or friends," the Reddit user wrote in March, adding:
"The story that most caught my attention involves his treatment of an ex. Apparently, he dated a really sweet girl but they would get in public screaming matches often.
"The relationship ended horrifically - while in Europe he SPIT ON HER and left."
You'd think or hope that producers would have been privy to this information before bringing Tyler on board.
However, one commenter responded to the aforementioned Reddit thread and said the intel was passed to Bachelor alum Ashley Spivey, who remains in contact with the show's production team.
"I actually DM'd the post to Spivey (I know people on the sub don’t like her that much, but she has helped bring attention to a lot of the previous scandals), and she DM'd me back saying that she’ll send it to ABC ASAP and to keep her updated if there’s anything else that I see that is concerning," the Reddit user wrote.
"Hopefully something will be done."
It appears as if that something has, indeed, now been done.
The disturbing question, if this story about Tyler and his ex is true, would be... why did it take The Bachelorette so long to realize it had a potentially violent loser on its hands?
