‘The Bachelorette’: Tyler Cameron Says His Friends Hold Him Accountable To Be Better
When contestants were less-than-progressively-minded, he’d call them out. Like when Luke Parker was upset at Brown for going bungee jumping in her underwear, Cameron was quick to ask him why it’s ok for him to parade around shirtless but not ok for her to bungee jump in her skivvies.
“Do you not think that it’s a double standard the fact that you’re able to parade around in a speedo in front of everybody, show your big bravado self, but she can’t go bungee jumping?” he asked.
Tyler Cameron thinks men need to hold each other accountable
After the show ended, Cameron said in an interview with Glamour that he feels it’s important for men to hold each other accountable.
“It’s very important [for men to hold each other accountable]. My friends that are very close to me, we hold each other accountable and call each other out on our B.S. I think it’s important that when things aren’t right, they need to be called out. Those actions shouldn’t be celebrated; they should be brought to attention,” he said.
Cameron also spoke to the publication about all the positive attention he received as soon as the show ended. He was happy to be an example for so many.
“I think one of my favorite compliments I got was that a lot of moms come up to me and say they make their sons watch the show because of me. That means a lot. I just want to be a good example for my little brothers. How that translates to everyone else [is awesome]. I’m very grateful for how my parents raised me and the experience I’ve had in my life to lead me to where I am today,” he said.
Glamour also asked Cameron about his Fantasy Suite with Brown. She requested the two not have sex and Cameron, of course, obliged. It elicited a huge response from Bachelor Nation.
“That’s all about being respectful and keeping it real. It’s about respecting and honoring each other’s boundaries. I think that’s the best way to really carry out a relationship, to take care of each other’s boundaries. When those boundaries are set, you love on those boundaries and don’t push ’em,” he said.
Tyler Cameron’s friends ‘have no problem calling [him] out on [his] sh*t
It’s been almost five months since The Bachelorette finale aired and Cameron’s had to navigate the world of dating as a celebrity ever since. He’s done some things that the Tyler C. we saw on Brown’s season might not have approved of–like going out with supermodel Gigi Hadid two days after he spent the night with Brown and going on a lunch date with an Instagram model right before spending the night with Brown. Cameron’s actions hurt Brown’s feelings–there was clearly a miscommunication of some sort.
Luckily, in this wild post-Bachelorette wold Cameron finds himself in, he has his friends to help keep him acting right.
“Men need to call each other out. That’s what I say my friends are good about: they have no problem calling me out on my sh*t. They’ll humble me quickly. I think we do need to keep each other accountable and humble each other,” he told Paper in a recent interview.
