The Bachelorette’s Tyler Cameron almost didn’t make it past Night 1. The reality star appeared on Season 15 of the dating show, led by Hannah Brown, who recently recalled her first interactions with Cameron on the show.

Appearing on the Bachelor Happy Hour podcast, she said Cameron made a terrible first impression. “I thought he was drunk or something was wrong with him when we first [met],” she said. “I asked the producers to check on him. I was like, ‘I think there’s something going on.’”

“I’m like, ‘Is this guy here with us? I’m not sure. He is obviously attractive,’” she continued. “There wasn’t actually a connection with him the first night.”

Speaking to hosts (and fellow Bachelor Nation stars) Joe Amabile and Serena Pitt, Brown said she now believes Cameron “was just nervous” and shared that “his eyes were barely open” during their initial meeting. When asked if she almost “cut” him, she admitted, “I almost did, because I didn’t talk [to him].”

On Season 15, Brown ultimately got engaged to Jedd Wyatt. Cameron finished as the runner-up. However, the winning couple quickly ended their engagement when she discovered he already had a girlfriend.

Since Their Bachelor Days

Brown has since moved on from life as a bachelorette. In August 2023, she announced her engagement to her new fiancé, Adam Woolard.

As for Cameron, franchise producers are reportedly keeping a close eye on him as a potential lead. Speaking on Watch What Happens Live in April 2024, Cameron told host Andy Cohen that he’s been asked “probably about four, five times” to star on the show. Although he would “never say never,” he isn’t signing up anytime soon.

“My theory in life is to tell the greatest story you can tell. Maybe one day, down the road, it could be a cool story, but not right now,” he said.
