“We tried to reconcile, really, during COVID [in early 2020 with] The Quarantine Crew. My mom had passed away three weeks before that… She was so good to my mom,” Tyler revealed during a recent appearance on Amanda Hirsch’s “Not Skinny But Not Fat” podcast.
Tyler recalled crying and being crushed after the breakup, but Hannah abruptly called off her engagement to Jed — about a month after he had popped the question in Greece — because Jed’s intentions were questionable and he allegedly had a girlfriend back home while he filmed The Bachelorette.
“I had so much respect for the way she carried herself and handled it [with Jed]. I wanted to be her friend still!” Tyler noted on the podcast.
Tyler went on to reveal when he and Hannah first reconnected, in a romantic way, after their breakup.
“I think it was right before I was heading out [to tape] After the Final Rose. I was in [Florida] doing my family trip I do every year. And [Hannah] called me and we talked for, like, two hours [on the phone] during my drive back,” Tyler said.
“She was like, ‘They want me to ask you out,’ [referring to] the producers. [She said], ‘I want to, too.’ And we talked about it all and were just catching up. We just talked, and it was probably an hour-and-a-half of her talking and a half-hour of me talking.”
Tyler admitted, “I for sure thought I would [give it another go]. I wanted to, and we tried a couple times.”
Tyler and Hannah reunited, publicly, live onstage for The Bachelorette: After the Final Rose special in July 2019. During that episode, Hannah asked Tyler out on a date, and then they were spotted together at Hannah’s Los Angeles home the following month.
And then in late February 2020, Tyler’s beloved mother Andrea Cameron suffered a brain aneurysm at age 55.
“I remember it was Day 2 of sitting next to the bed by my mom [when she was in the hospital] and I was thinking about Hannah and why my mom loved her. You just think about everything when you’re sitting in that scenario, you know?” Tyler shared on the podcast.
Andrea ultimately passed away, and Tyler shared how Hannah had reached out to him with her condolences.
“All of a sudden, Hannah texted me. She said, ‘Oh my god, I heard the news,’ and blah, blah, blah. So we had a long talk that night. And then she said, ‘I want to come out,’ and something happened with her family the next day, so we were leaning on each other,” Tyler explained.
“And then she wanted to come out for the funeral [in early March 2020] and it was a nice breath of fresh air. It was great.”
Their reunion prompted Tyler to invite Hannah to quarantine with him — and a handful of his friends, including future The Bachelor star Matt James — at his childhood Florida home amid the coronavirus pandemic.
“A week after the funeral, I got drunk and invited her back because I was feeling her, [but] then when she came back, it was too soon,” Tyler admitted.
“I wanted her to come, but I didn’t realize how crazy it would be. I was still mourning and dealing with [the loss of] my mom, and then I threw myself into a house with eight people living at my mom’s house. It was a tiny little three-bedroom, 1,200-square foot house.”
Tyler said living with that many people, including Hannah, resulted in “craziness” and chaos.
“My street became a parade because everyone found out Hannah and Matt and everyone was there,” Tyler said.
“So cars would just line up and drive by all day, every day. We were living in a bubble and there were just so many things happening at one time, I was like, ‘I can’t even figure out how to be friends with you.'”
The group lived together for about two months before Hannah returned home to Alabama, unsure of where her relationship with Tyler really stood.
Hannah later claimed that while she really liked Tyler and hoped for a second chance, they never even kissed during their time together at his house.
Amanda asked Tyler on her podcast if he felt like he broke Hannah’s heart in the same way she had broken his heart back in 2019.
“I guess,” Tyler confessed. “I guess you could say that. I don’t know.”
Hannah recalled receiving mixed signals and navigating a confusing relationship with Tyler from 2019-2020 in her first memoir, God Bless This Mess: Learning to Live and Love Through Life’s Best (and Worst) Moments, which was released in November 2021.
Not only did Hannah write that she felt like Tyler’s “backup player who never got to play in the game,” but she also said their relationship “wasn’t some game” to her and he “broke” her heart when he began dating Gigi shortly after The Bachelorette 15 wrapped on TV.
And Hannah claimed Tyler’s last text to her after their quarantine session was, “Well… if you rock with me, you rock with me. If you don’t, you don’t.”
But Tyler noted on “The Bellas Podcast” once Hannah’s book was released in late 2021, “I’ve got receipts, too!“
Tyler has since been romantically linked to beautiful women such as Stassie Karanikolaou, Juliette Porter, Jilissa Ann Zoltko, Camila Kendra, and Paige Lorenze.
Tyler — who finished as the runner-up on Fox’s The Real Dirty Dancing last year and is also currently competing on Season 2 of the network’s Special Forces: World’s Toughest Test reality competition — said he fell in love with Camila, but she allegedly dumped him in August 2021 after eight months of dating.
Hannah, for her part, is currently engaged to model Adam Woolard.
Tyler said on Amanda’s podcast that he thinks it’s “awesome” Hannah is going to be getting married and “it all worked out.”
