The Bachelorette alum Tyler Cameron has claimed he's been asked to star on The Bachelor five times -- and he's not totally ruling out the possibility.

During a recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live, host Andy Cohen asked Tyler -- who had finished as the runner-up on Hannah Brown's The Bachelorette season in 2019 -- how many times ABC has approached him to be The Bachelor's leading man.

Tyler, 31, answered, "Probably about four, five times."


While Tyler declined each opportunity to hand out roses, there may come a day when he's ready and willing to star on The Bachelor.

"I'll never say never," Tyler said. "My theory in life is to tell the greatest story you can tell. Maybe one day down the road it could be a cool story but not right now."

Tyler also revealed on the talk show that he'd ideally only have to wait 24-72 hours to sleep with a woman he's "super into" but he'd be willing to wait longer if it makes the person he's dating happy.

In addition, Tyler said his turnoffs are when a woman is on her phone too much during a date or she's rude to the server at the restaurant.

Tyler teased he's in a relationship with someone new after more than a year of being single.

"I'd say I'm less floating [around in the dating scene], more dating someone," Tyler told Page Six while promoting his new Amazon show Going Home with Tyler Cameron.

Tyler didn't reveal the identity of the woman he's been dating, but many fans have speculated he's currently seeing his friend Tate Madden.

Tyler has been living in his native Jupiter, FL, since early 2023.

After competing on The Bachelorette's fifteenth season in 2019, he briefly lived in New York City, sharing an apartment with Season 25 The Bachelor star Matt James.

"[Jupiter does] not [have] as many people to pick from, like, if you were, like, in New York or LA, but I think what I love about Jupiter is just [it's] got good, real people, and I can always connect with those kind of people," Tyler shared.

"It's been good for me," he said, adding, "[I'm] trying to slow down, trying to date. I'm trying to do the right thing these days."

And "doing the right thing" may mean ignoring his DMs from women on Instagram.

"The DMs are still crazy. Some wild stuff still comes in all the time," Tyler admitted.

"I mean, nothing compares to the craziness from that show. That was one of the most wildest times of my life. But yeah, it's, I guess, it's tapered off a little bit."


Tyler finished in second place on Hannah's season of The Bachelorette behind her winner, aspiring country singer Jed Wyatt, during the May 2019 finale on ABC.

Tyler recalled crying in a bath tub and being crushed about his breakup with Hannah after the show, 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.

Although Hannah regretted her final pick and broke up with Jed, Tyler moved on and dated supermodel Gigi Hadid in a highly-publicized romance.

Once Tyler and Gigi broke up in late 2019, Tyler and Hannah attempted to secretly reconcile multiple times, but nothing ever stuck.

Tyler remained single for two years before he started dating model Camila Kendra. Tyler admitted he was in love with Camila, but they only dated for eight months and she allegedly dumped him in August 2021.

Tyler later confirmed his relationship with Paige Lorenze, a social-media influencer, in July 2022, but they split just three weeks later.

"We actually had to take a step back. It wasn't the right time. It wasn't good for us," Tyler said on E!'s Daily Pop at the time. "But we both have tons of respect and love for each other."

In addition, Tyler -- who finished as the runner-up on Fox's The Real Dirty Dancing and also competed on Season 2 of the network's Special Forces: World's Toughest Test reality competition -- was also rumored to be romantically involved with Stassie Karanikolaou, Juliette Porter, and Jilissa Ann Zoltko at one time or another.


Rumors also swirled Tyler was dating the former Very Cavallari star Kristin Cavallari last year. He appeared in her music video and then the pair had a New Year's Eve date to ring in 2023.

Tyler said he's now looking forward to settling down and putting down roots in Florida.

"I want to be a high school football coach for my local high school, Jupiter High, and hopefully I have a bunch of kids and married and start living that life," Tyler told Page Six of where he sees himself in ten years.

But until then, Tyler is starring in his new reality show, and he said he's focused on "building up my real estate portfolio" and pursuing "these dreams that I have" with his construction and home renovation company called Image 1 Construction.

Hannah visited Tyler in Jupiter after his beloved mother Andrea died from a brain aneurysm in early 2020. Tyler and Hannah ended up quarantining together -- along with a big group of friends -- during the coronavirus pandemic.

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!"

Hannah is now happily engaged to model Adam Woolard, and Tyler has made it known in the media that he thinks it's awesome.
