No saltiness here! Hannah Brown gushed about her “really special” bond with ex Tyler Cameron and many of the other contestants from her season of The Bachelorette. The runner-up from the show sent her a sweet “happy birthday” text back in September, and the Alabama beauty gushed about how “nice” it was for him to remember. Overall, she is over-the-moon about the solid crew of guys she met on the reality show.

“It’s been really special,” the 25-year-old divulged to Us Weekly following her Southern-themed samba with Alan Bersten on October 21’s Dancing With the Stars episode. “The people that I’ve met that have come in my life and just supported me through everything that I’ve gone through, it’s been one of the biggest blessings in all of this. Just everyone that I’ve got to meet or come in contact with and just gain wisdom and advice from. It’s really special.”

As for Tyler, 26, he only wishes good things for the Bachelor Nation babe. “We’re friends, and I think she’s an incredible girl, and I have so much love for her, and I want her to be successful and have the best,” he admitted to Us Weekly during the Hudson River Park Annual Gala on October 17.

As for the possibility of the pair rekindling their romance, it seems as though their connection is platonic for now. After a brief 2-month-long fling with Gigi Hadid, Tyler seems happy to slow down and take some time for himself. “I’m just trying to worry about today and tomorrow, you know?” he added.

Hannah is also in a whole new place in life. She left her hometown of Tuscaloosa, Alabama and now lives in Los Angeles where she is slaying on DWTS. “I’m truly just focused on continuing to love myself and see the places where I still need to work on that — and I think this is the way where I can do that,” she exclusively confessed to Life & Style in August.

Although she’s endured a lot of change, the starlet is ready to achieve her dreams. “I don’t know if I really see myself moving back to Alabama,” she revealed during a grouped interview for DWTS on October 21. “I feel like the Lord and just like my life, there’s so much more in store for me that I can’t even imagine, but I’d love a vacation before, so that starts after this.”

They didn’t find love, but Tyler and Hannah did find one supportive crew.
