Uh, this is awkward. Bachelorette Hannah Brown gushed about the single life after her runner-up, Tyler Cameron, was spotted on a date with Gigi Hadid. “Single life is great. I’m keeping my options open,” the Alabama beauty, 24, told Us Weekly after photos surfaced of Tyler, 26, and Gigi, 24, out and about at Soho House in Brooklyn on Sunday, August 4. “[I’m] more so focused on filling my cup as a single woman and my opportunities moving forward, and that doesn’t mean with a man.”
Romance rumors first started swirling after Bachelor Nation noticed Gigi and Tyler followed each other on Instagram. “Gigi and Tyler are in Dumbo right now,” a source told Life & Style exclusively about their date. “They were laughing and it seems like they were having a good time.” According to the eyewitness, the duo were hanging out on the rooftop. “It was definitely first date vibes and you can tell he seemed a little nervous.” The two were photographed together just days after the Florida native was seen leaving Hannah’s apartment on August 2 after spending the night.
Bachelor fans were hoping for a reconciliation between Hannah and Tyler after the Bachelorette broke off her engagement with Jed Wyatt. “I’m really confident in who I am now and being on my own and growing and taking in what I want in the next relationship,” the blonde bombshell told her ex while reuniting on After the Final Rose. “I’ve always said, ‘Yeah, I want someone to be bold.’ I’m bold, and I make bold moves. You’re an incredible guy, I’m a single girl. So, I don’t know, I thought maybe we could go for a drink and hang out.”
Unfortunately, “it would be too complicated” for the two to rekindle the flame after their heartwrenching breakup, an insider previously told Life & Style. “It would be too hard for him to take her back.” The source also noted that the model “is at a point in his life where he knows exactly who he is and what he wants.”
Welp, it looks like “what he wants” is Gigi Hadid!
