When the world first learned that Tyler Cameron was dating Gigi Hadid, it was widely assumed that the attraction was purely physical and that the two of them would go their separate ways following a few weeks of very photogenic sexual escapades.
Instead, something wholly unexpected has taken place:
Against all odds, it seems that Tyler and Gigi have triumphed over their own superior genetics to form a really ridiculously good-looking monogamous couple.
Tyler gushes about Gigi every chance that he gets.
He even attended the funeral of Hadid’s grandmother, a move that reportedly surprised the model’s loved ones, who did not realize she and Tyler had gotten so serious.
Now, we’re learning that Tyler has made the ultimate sacrifice by passing up additional fame and the attention of a few dozen single women in order to pursue his relationship with Gigi.
As you’ve probably heard by now, Peter Weber has been named the new Bachelor.
It seems the title could have been Tyler’s but he opted out, as he no longer considers himself a single man.
“Yeah, it was something we talked about,” Cameron recently told Entertainment Tonight.
“Where I was at in my life … I just didn’t think it was where I wanted to be. My heart wasn’t in it.”
“I just I sat on it, thought about it, and my heart wasn’t in it,” he further explained.
“And that’s something you have to be fully invested in. I was on the other side of it as a contestant, which is a much easier role than being the lead of the show.”
Perhaps in an effort to soften the blow for Hannah Brown — who asked Tyler on a date after colossally effing up by dumping him in favor of Jed Wyatt — Chris Harrison claims Tyler made the decision not so that he could settle down with Gigi, but so that he could continue to play the field
“If Tyler is bouncing around from girl to girl and loving the life and enjoying the limelight, which, by the way, good on him," Harrison told ET.
"That’s fine. If that’s what you want to do right now, I don’t blame him," the host continued.
“He’s probably enjoying life really, really well — but that’s not someone we’re going to want to have as our Bachelor or Bachelorette,” added Harrison.
“So, it’s about sincerity. It’s about where you are in your life. And if that’s where he is in his life, then he’s not the guy for us.”
That’s mighty kind of you Chris, but we think it’s pretty clear that Tyler only has one rose to give out these days, and it’s got Gigi’s name all over it.
