UPDATE: Apparently the bowling date on Monday night went well, because Tyler Cameron was seen yesterday morning leaving Gigi Hadid’s NYC apartment. It’s still been just five days since Tyler was seen leaving Hannah’s apartment in LA, so things are really moving fast around here. This also throws a big ol’ ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ in the face of the source that said Gigi and Tyler are “taking things slow.” I’m in no place to judge, but my definition of slow usually isn’t sleeping with someone on the second date. I have a feeling this might also be another nail in the coffin for Tyler’s chances to be the Bachelor next season, but like I’ve said, I doubt he actually wants it. Realistically, I’m now going to camp out outside Gigi’s apartment until I see them together, so it’s been real guys!
While all of you were busy watching the Bachelor In Paradise premiere last night, things weren’t just heating up in Mexico. In New York, Tyler Cameron was seen hanging out with Gigi Hadid for the second night in a row, signaling that there might really be something going on here. It’s still been less than a week since Hannah asked Tyler to grab that drink, but my attention is fully focused on Tyler and Gigi now. You hate to see it.
After their Sunday night date at Dumbo House, Tyler and Gigi reportedly headed back to Gigi’s place for a drink, and clearly it went okay since on Monday night, they met up again at Frames Bowling Lounge with friends. Though we don’t have any photos of them together on Monday (tragic), yesterday a source told E! News what’s going on between the two. “Gigi is definitely interested in Tyler. They met for drinks last night at Soho and they got along really well. It was very casual but they were laughing and had a very engaged conversation.”
Okay, so I’m glad that they weren’t having a miserable conversation with each other, but it’s still probably too soon to know how serious things are going to get here. The source also said, “They are both taking things slow but have both made it clear they are interested in each other.” Weird, because my definition of “taking things slow” usually looks like being ignored for days on end rather than hanging out two nights in a row, but I’m also not a model.
Me: Tyler C was spotted hanging out with Gigi Hadid even though a few days ago he was seen leaving Hannah’s apartment
911 operator: no.

Meanwhile, the rest of Bachelor nation has wasted no time making their feelings known about Tyler and Gigi’s new flirtationship. At an ABC press event on Monday, Hannah Brown was diplomatic when asked about it: “I have feelings, but I’m also single and he’s single and I wanna keep my options open and he can keep his options open.” She also added that, after the whirlwind Bachelorette experience, she’s currently more focused on “working on Hannah and loving Hannah” than finding a new relationship. From these answers, Hannah could definitely still be upset about seeing Tyler with Gigi, but she knows better than to tell everyone that.
But who wasn’t so diplomatic with their comments? Our favorite messy bitch who lives for drama, Chris Harrison! When speaking to ET on Monday, Chris talked about how the Tyler and Gigi developments affect his chances of being the next Bachelor.
“If Tyler is bouncing around from girl to girl and loving the life and enjoying the limelight—which, by the way, good on him. That’s fine. If that’s what you want to do right now, I don’t blame him. 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. 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.”
Wait, did Chris Harrison just slut shame Tyler? The phrase “bouncing around from girl to girl” is both hilarious and cringey, but I love that Chris sounds like a disappointed dad who doesn’t want to push his son away. Maybe Tyler’s behavior isn’t fitting of the next Bachelor, but like I said yesterday, I don’t really think that’s what Tyler is going for at this point. Whether things keep moving forward with Gigi or not, it seems like Tyler is going to have plenty of opportunities, both career- and romance-wise.
Will Tyler and Gigi make it three nights in a row tonight? Honestly, I can’t wait to find out. BRB, have to go work on the perfect couple name for them. Tyligi? Giler? Gigi C? Drop your thoughts in the comments.

I’ll start with a confession: I generally find The Bachelor and The Bachelorette pretty boring. It doesn’t do that much for me to see the same parade of idiots season after season pretend that they’re ready to get engaged to a stranger. Every year when we’re promised the “most dramatic season ever,” I just roll my eyes. So imagine my surprise in realizing that this season is…actually really good? There have been some truly dramatic twists with the guys, and Hannah B is unexpectedly kind of a badass. ABC did a good job, and if the spoilers hold up, it looks like the end of this season is not going to disappoint.
If you don’t want spoilers, stop reading now, and also why did you even click on this article? As many of you probably know, a couple weeks ago Reality Steve publicly changed his prediction of who was going to win The Bachelorette. He originally predicted Tyler C would win. Now he’s all in on Jed, who conveniently had a girlfriend when he went on the show. That’s a whole other thing that somehow didn’t stop him from making it to the end, but it’s all catching up with him now.
(EXCLUSIVE SPOILER)…I can confirm that Hannah broke off her engagement to Jed earlier this week. They are still "together," but the engagement is off. This isn't a "don't ever talk to me again" from what I'm being told, but it's also not all rainbows and daffodils either…

On Thursday night, Reality Steve said he can confirm that Hannah has broken off her engagement with Jed. Wow. I mean, he definitely deserves it if all the girlfriend stuff is really true, but I’m still pretty proud of Hannah for pulling the trigger. According to Reality Steve, their relationship isn’t necessarily 100% over, and they’re still on speaking terms, but it’s obviously a good time to take a step back and really think things through.
Of course, we won’t hear any of this from Hannah’s mouth until the season comes to an end, but I really hope it gets addressed on the Finale/After the Final Rose. It’s not like there haven’t been any asshole women on The Bachelor, but I feel like especially the guys feel like they can get away with this type of sh*t year after year. Jed deserves to get dragged on national television if all the accusations are true, and I’m setting my DVR now.
Before you ask, neither me nor Reality Steve have any idea if Hannah is reconsidering a relationship with Tyler, or if he would even want that. He might have gone to Paradise, or he could very well be the next Bachelor. Basically, we don’t know where all the chips are going to fall at the end of this mess, but the engagement is over.
(EXCLUSIVE SPOILER) With that said, I know you will all ask me about Tyler, and will she get back with him, and are they together, have they talked, etc. I don't know. Who knows if Tyler would even want that. Maybe he'd rather be the "Bachelor?" I'm not gonna answer for him

Maybe there’s still time for Hannah to make it to the end of Paradise, but honestly all those
clowns men probably aren’t good enough for her. I’m wishing her the best, because she somehow seems to be the person here with her priorities most in order. Except when it comes to Luke P, because he has her totally dickmatized.
This situation is still developing, so we’ll see what happens between now and the end of this season. Maybe Hannah will hop on a flight back to Latvia for a couple weeks of soul searching. Either way, I’m sure Chris Harrison will be getting a lot of late night stress texts, and we should be in for a great last few weeks of The Bachelorette.
