Watch out, Hannah Brown!
Well, according to an E! News source on Monday, the two models are definitely “interested in each other.”
Per the insider:
“Tyler and Gigi actually have a few mutual friends in the modeling industry, but met on Instagram. She knew of him before he got any wind of fame from the Bachelorette… Gigi is definitely interested in Tyler. They met for drinks last night at Soho and they got along really well. It was very casual but they were laughing and had a very engaged conversation.”
The source added:
“Gigi thinks Tyler is really cute and nice and liked that he was a good listener… They have been texting for weeks and have plans to hangout again while Tyler is in NYC. They are both taking things slow but have both made it clear they are interested in each other.”
However, in regards to Cameron and Brown, things do not appear to be as hot.
A second insider told the publication:
“Tyler saw Hannah in LA and they had a good night and a good talk. But it’s probably not going to amount to much right now… She moved to LA and he doesn’t live there. They agreed to keep talking, but that’s it for now. It’s geographically challenging.”
Judging from the source, Tyler appears to be enjoying the single life, and is “not taking anything seriously.”
“Tyler left LA right after he saw Hannah and went to New York… He had been talking to Gigi through social media and they made plans to meet up… Tyler is single and is going to date around. He’s definitely not tied to Hannah or picking up where they left off on the show. He’s having fun and not taking anything seriously… He’s getting a lot of attention right now and is just going to see what happens.”
But is Cameron going to be next Bachelor??
While speaking to ET on Monday, the franchise’s host, Chris Harrison, said Tyler’s sleepover with Brown and date with Hadid “would definitely weigh into conversation” about who should be the next lead. He remarked:
“[This is] why we’re waiting [to announce who it is]. Let’s see how these guys react. Let’s see who really is sincere at the end of the day, because we do have a couple of months before we have to start production and really get into this, so we have time.”
The ABC personality elaborated:
“If Tyler is bouncing around from girl to girl and loving the life and enjoying the limelight — which, by the way, good on him. That’s fine. If that’s what you want to do right now, I don’t blame him. He’s probably enjoying life really, really well — but that’s not someone we’re going to want to have as our Bachelor or Bachelorette… So, it’s about sincerity. It’s about where you are in your life. And if that’s where he is in his life, then he’s not the guy for us.”
However, Harrison did ask, “Why isn’t it Tyler [on Dancing With the Stars]?” adding:
“Tyler dances. He has the whole Footloose thing!”
Jokes aside, the 48-year-old — who said Peter Weber and Mike Johnson are still in contention for Bachelor — teased the announcement will be made toward the end of Bachelor in Paradise, which premieres Monday at 8 P.M. EST/PST.
