Tyler Cameron talks about if he's interested in being the next 'The Bachelor'
By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 08/01/2019
Tyler Cameron has shared his thoughts on potentially becoming the next The Bachelor star, and a possible reconciliation with Hannah Brown wasn't one of factors he cited when talking about the possibility.
Although a large portion of Bachelor Nation is shipping Hannah and Tyler as a couple, Tyler is also a frontrunner to star on Season 24 of The Bachelor next year -- and some Bachelor Nation members are concerned about Tyler suddenly becoming Hannah's "backup plan" instead.
When asked whether he'd accept an offer to be the next Bachelor, Tyler told Nick, "I don't know, I'm all over the map about that one."
"I have a lot of things I have to sit down and think about when it comes to that," Tyler explained. "It's a lot of responsibility. It's a great opportunity but it comes with a lot of responsibility."
Nick pointed out that starring on the franchise is "very challenging."
And then Tyler shared, "My main focus right now is ABC Food Tours, which is something I'm putting all of my energy into. We're starting our own nonprofit."
But a possible relationship with Hannah wasn't one of the reasons Tyler specifically mentioned as to why he's not sure if he'd consider the Bachelor gig.
Tyler noted that ABC "can't go wrong" with pretty much any of the guys from Hannah's Season 15 cast.
Tyler fell hard for Hannah on The Bachelorette but only finished as her runner-up behind Jed Wyatt, whom Hannah dumped five weeks ago after she learned he went on the show with a girlfriend back home and had planned to continue the relationship when he returned.
Jed had told his now-former girlfriend, Haley Stevens, he was only going on The Bachelorette to promote his music career.
Hannah, however, fell in love with both Tyler and Jed, and so she admitted to Entertainment Tonight it wouldn't be fun watching Tyler star on The Bachelor.
"I think it would be a little hard to see him as the Bachelor because there's still feelings there, but I would support him in his happiness," Hannah explained to ET.
"I think that the main thing is figuring out what will make both of us happy, and if that's for him to go on and to have the opportunity to be the Bachelor, I would support him in finding his happiness, just like he supported me with Jed."
Tyler is definitely onboard with meeting Hannah for a drink, but he has said he wants to take things day by day and doesn't want to put pressure on the situation.
During his "The Viall Files" appearance, Tyler also told Nick he had only been in one serious relationship prior to meeting Hannah.
According to Tyler, his ex-girlfriend broke up with him in April 2018 after about one-and-a-half years together.
"When I got cut from the Ravens, that put me in my darkest hole there ever was because since I was five years old, I wanted to be a pro football player," Tyler revealed on the podcast.
"That was my whole dream... I felt like I was taking so much from my ex because she was trying to give so much to pull me out of that hole, and then at the end of it, she broke up with me."
Tyler realized about a month after his breakup how much his issues had taken a toll on his ex-girlfriend.
"I was so in my head about football and was not being as good to her as I could've been... She was always there for me, a super sweet girl... but I just put myself in a really bad mental place and she tried her best," Tyler admitted.
"I wasn't the best boyfriend. I wasn't that attentive and I didn't give it my all."
But Tyler said he learned a lot from that relationship, just like he did from Hannah.
