Bachelor nation essentially lost their collective marbles on Friday (August 2) when Bachelorette Hannah Brown was seen canoodling with ex-love Tyler Cameron.
But, before we all get too excited, we might need to all take a collective deep breath.

While the two ex-loves did in fact seem open to a future relationship during the recent finale of The Bachelorette, they both seem to be taking it one step at a time.
“I have feelings, but I’m also single and he’s single and I wanna keep my options open and he can keep his options open,” Brown told Entertainment Tonight during a recent interview. “I am single, and people slide into my DMs if they want to, but I just got out of an engagement and dating 30 men. [Dating] is not really not my sole focus right now. I’m working on Hannah and loving Hannah, and so you know, if that means going to have a drink again with somebody else, then I’m all for it.”
Her comments came as Cameron made news himself when, after his rendezvous with Brown, he flew out to New York to spend some time with model Gigi Hadid. The two started tongues wagging when during the season finale Gigi followed Tyler on Instagram and Tyler followed her back. And yes, there is talk that Cameron just might take a turn as The Bachelor himself. At this rate, he doesn’t need the show to find a date anymore.
“I don’t know where he’s at with wanting to be the Bachelor,” Brown said. “I think he has his options open as well, and if the Bachelor is one of those options, then I guess I’ll support him if that’s what he wants to do.”
We shall see.

Wow. Today was long and trying but I want to say thank you to all of the outlets who allowed me a platform to tell my story. The past few months have definitely been the hardest yet most fulfilling of my life. I opened my heart to love, and shared that experience with millions. I’ve had my fair share of ups and downs and as painful as it has been at times, I wouldn’t change it one bit. Did I make choices that hurt my heart? Absolutely. Have I become stronger through that hurt? You bet. I realized how strong of a woman I am, and how resilient I can be. My love story might not have been the one I would have initially written for myself; however, falling more in love with the woman I am at the end of this journey is something I’ll always look back on fondly. This is not my ending; it’s just my beginning. And to your burning questions: Yes, the drink is happening. No, you’re not invited. I’m really appreciative that Tyler has always had my back and supported me through all my decisions. He constantly encourages me to lean into the strong woman that I am. He’s a really good man, and I’m going to be his biggest fan in whatever makes him the happiest. roll tide.
