Is he ready to joke about it yet? Bachelor Nation alum Nick Viall trolled newly single Tyler Cameron on the heels of his breakup from Gigi Hadid. The former Bachelorette contestant and model struck up a quick romance this summer, but ended things two months later, according to Us Weekly. Nick took the opportunity to poke a little fun at his fellow franchise alum.
Tyler, 26, shared a shirtless picture of himself stretching in Central Park on Instagram to promote an interview he did with GQ about his marathon training. “Stretching is more effective with a partner … just saying,” Nick, 39, hilariously commented on the October 3 post.
Fans were here for the shade and more than happy to offer their support to Tyler. “I volunteer as tribute!” one person wrote in response to Nick’s comment. “I’ll volunteer as said partner … just saying,” someone else echoed. “@nickviall and that partner is me, pick me,” another user joked.
Gigi and Tyler seemed to be cooling off a bit while the model was off walking on runways all over the world during fashion weeks in New York, Milan and Paris. When the duo was “still a thing,” a source exclusively dished to Life & Style that their schedules were making it hard to prioritize their relationship. “They’ve both been very busy recently — she’s been in Europe for fashion week and he’s been working on his charity and preparing for the Chicago marathon … They still talk, it’s just been a matter of busy schedules,” the insider explained.
Although he previously claimed he and Gigi were “just friends,” the Florida native said that he turned down the opportunity to be the new Bachelor because he was more invested in other things (and people). “It was something we talked about, but where I was at in my life, I just didn’t think it was where I wanted to be,” he admitted during an interview with Entertainment Tonight on September 24. “My heart wasn’t in it, my dad was really sick again, and I was nervous and scared. I sat on it, thought about it, and … my heart wasn’t it.” Peter Weber was officially announced as the leading man during the Bachelor in Paradise reunion show on September 17.
We’re sure Tyler won’t have any problem finding love again.
