Drama in Bachelor Nation! Contestant Tyler G. was suddenly removed from Hannah Brown‘s season of The Bachelorette due to past shady behavior. The Florida native seemingly hit it off with the Alabama beauty during his first one-on-one date during Week 2. However, it looks like an incident with one of his exes caused production to pull him from the season during Week 3.
Life & Style reached out to ABC and Tyler Gwozdz but did not hear back by the time of publication.
There are a lot of rumors flying around about Tyler and his past. On the May 27 episode, while Hannah is out galavanting with some of the guys during a group date, production came and removed the 28-year-old, according to Reality Steve. Stories surfaced on Reddit that Tyler had a tumultuous relationship in the past that ended when he “spit on” his ex.
Distractify reports that after the thread went live a fan sent the information to franchise alum Ashley Spivey, who allegedly told the person that she passed the information along to production. Clearly, the claims were considered serious enough to remove Tyler from the show.
“Everyone has rough relationships,” a source close to the contestant exclusively told Life & Style. “I don’t know the details but when you’re younger you don’t realize the importance of certain things. Every relationship helps you grow and I’m sure that’s the case with Tyler.” The insider continued, “All I know is there is two sides to every story. If he spit on a girl or yelled at her in public, that’s not great, but I know Tyler and I’m sure whatever has happened in his past he’s learned from it. Whatever happened with that situation, I’m sure it was a long time ago, I’m sure he apologized for it.”
Although the source noted that the former contestant “hasn’t told us much” about the situation, they seem certain that they know his true character. “There is so much emphasis put on this show on any ‘dirt,’ true or false, and it can make you look like the devil but the real picture around Tyler is he is a great guy.”
Time will tell how the rest of Hannah’s season will unfold.
