Honesty hour. Bachelorette star Hannah Brown admitted that she was surprised when Tyler Cameron went out on a date in NYC with model Gigi Hadid just two days after he was photographed leaving her Los Angeles apartment after staying the night. The Alabama beauty sat down with Bachelor Nation alums Rachel Lindsay and Ali Fedotowsky to spill her true thoughts about the Florida native during the “Bachelor Happy Hour” podcast.
Rachel kicked off the conversation by explaining her perspective as a fan this season. “I guess I find it disrespectful, it’s kind of like, bruh, slow your roll,” she began. “You’re on Twitter talking about ‘Hannah’s the queen’ and preaching about respect, but then you’re being a little disrespectful by dating other people in such a public way where you know it’s gonna get so much attention. I think that’s my beef with it.”
Hannah couldn’t help but agree with the sentiment. “I think that’s my beef with it too,” she responded to the season 13 babe. “And the thing is … we are not dating dating, at all, we hung out, but we also had conversations of both like knowing that there’s still something there. And when you are in the public eye, you do just have to be respectful of each other. Yeah, I wish I would’ve got a little bit more than two days. But, you know, it is OK.”
Although the former beauty queen was a little shaken by her ex being seen with the gorgeous model, she’s not holding on to any animosity. “He has every right to do whatever he wants because we were just, you know, hanging out, seeing where it goes. And I am completely fine with that,” she noted. “It was a little confusing but, um, he can do whatever he wants to and I know that I can too. And I am going to continue going onward and upward.”
During After the Final Rose, Hannah admitted that she still had feelings for Tyler, which inspired her to ask him out for a drink. She confessed that she doesn’t regret that move at all. “I just think that I’ve made it very clear … I have no shame in saying I had feelings. I totally did. I totally still have feelings but, at the same time, I am not tied to any man or tied to Tyler and I’m not going to be,” the reality star said.
Of course, Hannah also snuck in her signature humor when asked if she thought Tyler had a possibility of being the franchise’s next leading man. “I mean I think he is, uh, um. .. I mean I think he likes to date around, so maybe he would be a good Bachelor,” she quipped.
Keep slaying, girl!
