The Bachelorette finale took place earlier this week and it was just as dramatic as Chris Harrison promised it would be. We learned what exactly happened between Hannah Brown and Jed Wyatt after Wyatt’s ex-girlfriend, Haley Stevens, came forward and, more importantly, we watched Brown ask America’s sweetheart, Tyler Cameron, out for a drink on national TV. He, of course, said he’d love to.
After watching such a heartbreaking end to Brown’s engagement, fans were happy to see Brown excited about something else. She told the audience that she doesn’t need a husband, but she’d like one someday. Maybe Cameron will be that man. He certainly thought he was going to be two months ago.
Tyler C.’s Instagram letter to Hannah B.
The day after “After The Final Rose” aired, Cameron posted a sweet letter to Brown on Instagram.
What a ride… I’ll make this short and sweet. This journey with you is something that I will always cherish. I am so grateful for all the experiences that we shared together. You taught me so much about myself and pushed me to be a better man. I learned so much from you and so did the rest of Bachelor Nation. You were what we all needed as a lead. You showed strength and grace in the most beautiful way. You kept it real and gave us all of you. As one chapter closes, another one begins. The world is yours girl! Excited to see what you do with it. Looking forward to that drink.
Forever your biggest fan,
He wrote that he’s “looking forward to that drink,” but there was no official confirmation.
But then Brown commented on the post: “I’m cheesin’ hard. I’m really thankful for your love and support. You’re the best, and I’m glad America thinks so too. And…see ya soon! Cheers.”
Hannah B. says her drink with Tyler C. is on
Then, Brown posted her own Instagram photo of her and Cameron. The picture shows her and the runner-up riding horses in front of a sign that says “What’s Next?”
She captioned the photo: “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.
So the drink is happening and we are not invited. Cheers, Hannah and Tyler!
