‘The Bachelorette’: Why Tyler C. Wants To Focus On Modeling Instead Of Construction Right Now

When Tyler Cameron appeared on Hannah Brown’s season of The Bachelorette, his job title read: General Contractor. His introductory video showed him dancing around a barely built house with a tool belt slung around his waist. But one quick look at his Instagram and it was clear that the new reality star had different ambitions in mind. In addition to being a general contractor, Cameron also dabbled in the world of modeling. 

In a recent interview with the Bachelor Party podcast, Cameron said that, even before he began filming for The Bachelorette, he made the decision to move to New York City and dive into his budding modeling career.

“My life has changed completely. A lot more opportunities are coming. I’m excited there’s a lot of things that are in the makings right now that I’m really excited about. As much as I love Jupiter and I love construction […] but prior to the show I was going to move to New York City to go for my modeling career,” he said on the podcast. 

When he found out he was going to be on the show, Cameron had been living on his friend’s (Matt James) futon for four weeks in the city. 

Modeling was always the plan for Tyler C. 

Cameron says that, no matter what happened on The Bachelorette, he always planned to return to New York to focus on modeling.

“I was up in New York after that just like three or four weeks doing a bunch of test shoots, trying to get my book built, and work with my agency up here, and so I was gonna move up here, whatever happened with the show. Because houses are always gonna be built, renovated, there’s always gonna be opportunities there. But there’s a shelf life to modeling and these opportunities so I’m trying to run with it and see what it has to offer, and I got some really cool things that are coming with modeling,” he said.

So Cameron is going along with his plan and currently apartment-hunting in New York with James–the two are planning on living together.

“Now we’re gonna get an apartment together and figure it out. We’re moving up in the world. We’re looking at apartments this week and next week and Myler is staying strong, that’s our couple name,” he said.

When asked why he’s moving in with James rather than living alone, Cameron responded:

“That’s my guy. I was gonna get a one-bedroom but I think it’s important to surround yourself with people that are doing good things and that’s my partner with ABC Food Tours. I’ve been living on his couch for a while now and he hasn’t gotten sick of me.”

According to Cameron, he and James share a special friendship. 

“He’s been a true blessing. He’s a friend that I’ll always cherish. He’s allowed me to kind of get on my feet here,” he said.
