It’s a sad time for true love in BachelorNation, because it’s starting to look bleaker and bleaker for any chance of Hannah and Tyler ending up together. This is tough for all of us, and Chris Harrison will probably never believe in love again. Basically, Tyler Cameron and Gigi Hadid haven’t stopped hanging out in the last two weeks, and they took things to the next level with a weekend trip to upstate New York.
On Thursday, Tyler and Gigi were spotted together at a Starbucks in Lake George, New York, which is about four hours north of NYC. Really, the fact that they spent four hours together in a car is equivalent to being engaged in my mind, but maybe they took a helicopter or something fancy like that. Then, they were seen together at a liquor store, where Tyler was carrying a case of wine to the car. There was at least one other friend on the trip with them, but it’s pretty clear that Tyler and Gigi are a thing that’s happening.

It’s pretty hilarious to see a picture of Gigi Hadid wearing her neon biker shorts at a liquor store in what is probably Trump country. Gigi’s outfit only looks appropriate for an approximately three-block stretch of Soho, so the locals in Lake George probably have no idea what is happening. Also, I’m not sure what kind of fugly patterned shorts Tyler is wearing, but I’d still drop literally everything to sleep with him.
In my life, if I was spending the weekend with someone upstate, it would be the result of months of planning and saving money, so it would basically mean we were about to get married. I obviously can’t relate to Gigi Hadid’s lifestyle, where she could probably purchase an entire town in upstate New York at the drop of a hat. In her world, a trip upstate is basically the most casual thing you could do.
Interestingly, the Elle article about Tyler and Gigi’s trip claims that “The two appear to be taking it slow,” which seems like the exact opposite of what’s happening. I mean, they’ve hung out at least five times in the last two weeks, including a literal vacation together. All of this has happened faster than I usually get a single text back, so there’s really no evidence that they’re taking anything slow. I don’t know if they’re in it for the long haul, but they seem pretty inseparable right now.
So what about that time literally four days ago, when Tyler was seen leaving his friend’s apartment with Andi Dorfman? It seems likely that they were just hanging out because of the event they’re doing together, because I don’t even know how he would have time to be seeing someone in addition to Gigi right now. Either way, Tyler is living his best life right now, and I don’t think that’s going to involve Hannah, or being the next Bachelor.
Clearly, Tyler is just enjoying himself right now, and why wouldn’t he? He has millions of Instagram followers, a hot maybe-girlfriend, and probably a lot more career opportunities than he did six months ago. Meanwhile, Hannah is going to be doing Dancing With The Stars, so I think they’ll both be just fine.

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.

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.
