Hannah Brown and Tyler Cameron quarantined together

When stay-at-home orders began for the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, Brown flew to Florida to quarantine with Cameron and his friends. It seemed dating rumors about the pair started as soon as Cameron was spotted picking up Brown at the Palm Beach International Airport.

For the next few weeks, Brown, Cameron, and their friends posted TikTok videos and other content on social media under the name “The Quarantine Crew.” Some of the group’s videos referenced Brown and Cameron’s past relationship on The Bachelorette.

In one particular TikTok video, Brown and Cameron trolled fans by playing a game of Spin the Bottle. Like some of their other TikTok videos, the TikTok kept fans guessing about the status of their relationship until the very last second. Cameron spun the bottle with Brown being the only other person playing the game. However, the bottle landed on Cameron’s friend Jacob Laham who appeared from around the corner at the end of the game.

Tyler Cameron said he and Hannah Brown are ‘starting off as friends’

In a video posted on a fan account’s Instagram story, Cameron discussed his current relationship status with Brown.

“We’re friends..it’s been nice to be able to communicate and be friends again. We are able to talk, and you know, we’re just starting off as friends and that’s what it is right now,” Cameron said. “And we’re not in a place where we should be worried about dating or anything like that right now…but yeah, that’s my homie she’s my friend…But its good to be back on good terms. She’s a great person and I’m grateful to be able to call her a friend.”

He has always insisted the two are just friends

This is not the first time Cameron has told people that he is just friends with Brown following their time on The Bachelorette. At the beginning of April 2020, Cameron appeared in a Zoom call with fans, and one of the fans on the call recorded the conversation and put it on TikTok. The recorded video showed that when asked about his relationship with Brown, Cameron said they were just friends.

“The tea is we are friends. She’s a good friend,” Cameron said.

Tyler Cameron has gotten defensive about Hannah Brown

Shortly after appearing on the Zoom call, an Instagram fan page posted clips from the conversation. Fans commented on the Instagram posts, voicing their opinion about Brown and Cameron’s relationship status.

One fan commented that Brown would eventually find the “perfect guy” who was not Cameron, writing, “Move on people .. Hannah will choose the perfect guy for her one day it’s not Tyler .. and the crew is boring without her , her and Ryan and Matt were the best.”

Cameron replied to the comment, “How many cats do you have?”
