The Bachelorette alum Tyler Cameron and Kristin Cavallari were officially out on a date on New Year's Eve, at least according to the former Very Cavallari star.

Tyler and Kristin were caught in an intimate embrace on the dance floor at a New Year's Eve party in Nashville, TN.


While Tyler and The Hills alum previously insisted they just have a professional and platonic relationship, Kristin suggested otherwise during a recent promotional video for her "Back to the Beach" podcast she co-hosts with Stephen Colletti.

"Who is the last person you went on a date with?" Stephen asked Kristin during a lighthearted game of "Sip or Spill."

Kristin smiled, giggled, and joked, "It's so funny to me how I get all of these questions every time and you get, like, the simplest stuff."

Kristin went on to reply, "My last date was public, so if you really want to know, I guess you can Google it. But I guess I'll sip so I don't actually have to say [his name]."

Stephen asked Kristin to disclose a "date" for this date, which would help him in his Google search.

"It was New Year's Eve weekend," Kristin noted.

"Ooh, there you go! That was very specific," Stephen proudly stated.

Kristin laughed again, and Stephen called his podcast co-host "flustered" by the conversation about her personal life.

"I don't get flustered, Stephen!" Kristin said.

"Yes you do!" Stephen playfully argued.

Kristin and Tyler spent New Year's Eve with The Bachelorette alums Kaitlyn Bristowe and Jason Tartick as well as Kristin's hairstylist Justin Anderson and his fiance Austin Rhodes.


In a video Kaitlyn and Jason posted on social media, Tyler could be seen pulling Kristin into his body for a tight hug as they danced, and then Kristin wrapped her arms around his neck.

Jason also posted a since-expired video on Instagram Stories in which he had asked Tyler if he's single.

Tyler dodged the question and attempted to flip the script on Jason by asking him about his relationship with Kaitlyn, but then Tyler finally confirmed, "Still single, yeah."

Earlier this month, Kristin made another comment to Stephen about her dating life, according to Us Weekly.

"To be honest, I don't want to say anything I'm going to end up regretting -- but I don't think I want to date another athlete," Kristin said on the January 17 episode of her podcast.

"I've done that. I want to leave that in the past," she added.

New Year's Eve wasn't the first time Tyler and Kristin sparked romance rumors.

Back in April 2022, Tyler and Laguna Beach alum were spotted making out while posing for a western-themed photo shoot promoting Kristin's clothing and jewelry line, Uncommon James.

But Kristin admitted the photo shoot was a publicity stunt on "The Bellas Podcast." Kristin actually acknowledged it was her plan all along to get fans gossiping about the reality TV stars' relationship status.

"I mean, that's why I hired the guy, to get press," Kristin confessed to co-hosts Brie Bella and Nikki Bella on the April 27 episode of the podcast.

"It worked," she added. "I was like, 'Check that box.'"

Tyler -- who found fame when he competed on Season 15 of The Bachelorette starring Hannah Brown -- said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show later that month that he was "very single right now" and just "great friends" with Kristin, who also previously insisted she and Tyler had "fun" posing together in the steamy photo shoot but were definitely "not dating."

"He's honestly the nicest human being on the planet," Kristin gushed. "I mean, he is like such a love. I have nothing but good things to say about him."


But Kristin, who also admitted Tyler is "a very good kisser," said she and the former general contractor from Florida had strictly a professional and friendly relationship.

The Balancing in Heels author is still in the middle of her divorce from football player Jay Cutler and it has yet to be finalized. The estranged spouses share three children together: sons Camden, 10, and Jaxon, 8, as well as daughter Saylor, 7.

Kristin told Entertainment Tonight last year that she was "open to dating" again and wants a confident and successful man "who is just really comfortable in their own skin" and can be her "rock" and "doesn't take life so seriously."

"I totally would [get married again]," Kristin, who found fame when she starred on Laguna Beach, said in Spring 2022.

"I want to because I think this time around it would be very different, and that excites me."

Following her split from Jay in April 2020, Kristin was linked to comedian Jeff Dye and singer Chase Rice.

Meanwhile, Tyler -- who finished as the runner-up on Fox's The Real Dirty Dancing -- was allegedly dumped by model Camila Kendra in August 2021 after eight months of dating.

Camila appeared to break up with Tyler shortly after he publicly announced that he was "very in love" with her.

"Things were going well until they weren't," an insider told Us in August 2021. "Friends were surprised things ended so quickly."

Tyler previously said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that he's looking for "someone whose smile is contagious" and "can light up a room."

Tyler also shared that it's important how his significant other treats "the people around them."

The model wants his future girlfriend to "respect the server, their parents, their friends," adding, "That's big for me... [And] she's got to be beautiful too."

In February 2022, Tyler told E!'s Daily Pop during a joint appearance with Kristin that he's also searching for a woman who is "hungry and ambitious" as well as "family oriented" and "ready for an adventure."

Tyler finished Hannah's season of The Bachelorette in second place behind winner and aspiring country singer Jed Wyatt.

Hannah broke up with Jed shortly after they got engaged and attempted to reconnect with Tyler during her After the Final Rose special, which aired in July 2019.

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 supermodel Gigi Hadid shortly after The Bachelorette 15 wrapped on TV.

Hannah and Tyler never dated again after the show, and they claim they never even kissed while quarantining with each other for several weeks amid the coronavirus pandemic in 2020.

And Hannah claimed Tyler's last text to her 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, "I've got receipts, too!"
