Cameron was a fan favorite on Brown’s season of The Bachelorette, and also her runner-up. Knowing what they knew, the show’s audience was heartbroken when Brown chose contestant Jed Wyatt over Cameron.

But after she announced that she’d broken off her engagement with Wyatt, Brown asked Cameron out for a drink on national TV. Cameron said yes and Bachelor Nation just about exploded. The possibility of Brown and Cameron getting back together again was almost too much to bear.

They got that drink (well, they stayed in–Cameron was photographed leaving Brown’s place in Los Angeles in the morning with an overnight bag in hand) but, a few days later, Cameron was seen out in New York with supermodel Gigi Hadid (the two had recently started following each other on Instagram just before The Bachelorette finale).

Brown seemed mostly unbothered by Cameron’s quick jump to Hadid, but she did say on the Bachelor Happy Hour podcast that she wishes she “would’ve got a little bit more than two days.”

“When you are in the public eye, you do have to just be respectful of each other,” she said.

While Cameron and Hadid were, seemingly–neither of them actually confirmed they were dating, exploring their relationship, Brown and Cameron didn’t really keep in contact.

Recently, Brown posted on Instagram about how she’s been struggling on Dancing With The Stars. Good ol’ Tyler Cameron commented on the post with some words of encouragement (like he used to do pre-Hadid).

“I came into this experience a little broken and confused—more than I’ve shared. Everyday has brought its challenges with my past, my fears, and the uncomfortableness of opening myself up again to be judged on something VERY scary like learning a new skill to perform each week. Last night was really defeating for me and a lot of suppressed emotions started to surface from this amazing, but grueling experience,” the former bachelorette shared on Instagram.

This experience has been harder than I could have ever imagined. When I decided to do DWTS I thought it would be a fun way to channel all my energy after a whirlwind experience as the Bachelorette. I was hopeful that the confidence I gained this year to take pride in the woman I have become would have the opportunity to shine, and I’d feel that reboot in my spirit after it took a bit of a beating after my bachelorette season. I came into this experience a little broken and confused—more than I’ve shared. Everyday has brought its challenges with my past, my fears, and the uncomfortableness of opening myself up again to be judged on something VERY scary like learning a new skill to perform each week. Last night was really defeating for me and a lot of suppressed emotions started to surface from this amazing, but grueling experience. I want to be me. I want to be real. I feel my best when I feel like I have the opportunity to share my heart with others. But I know that’s been lacking in what has been seen on DWTS. It’s true there is a disconnect. I am busting my ass. I am giving this my all. It’s my focus and passion right now. But each week I fall flat. I’ve gotten to the point of being so anxious before I perform that I can’t completely enjoy it like I wish and know I could. I KNOW I have a lot more I can give. I want to be able to feel free and confident to dance with my whole heart. I’m working on getting there. I’m not throwing a pity party. I can take criticism and understand hard work…and I also know that my attitude has to change to rise above this slump I’m in. But this is real life. These are real emotions. It’s okay to be grateful and positive, while also acknowledging the hard days we all have. It’s so important to think positively, but it’s also important to acknowledge and feel all the feels. This pressure to pretend is not good for anyone. That’s how this crazy cycle of perfectionism continues to exist in a lot of us. I’m blown away by the support I see and feel from all of you who love me through it all. So thank you— here’s to another opportunity to grow. See y’all next Monday!

Cameron commented: “Fall down 7 times, get up 8! You got this HB. Be where your feet are and enjoy the ride. You’re doing amazing.”

Fans, of course, lost their minds.

“can you two just please give it a real shot..for all of us fans!” commented one fan.

“IM CRYING IN THE CLUB HOLY SH*T DATE,” commented another.

“so you’re saying there’s a chance,” wrote another.

“my heart can’t handle this,” wrote another.

“so there’s hope?!” asked another fan.

There’s no way to know for sure why Cameron’s back to publicly supporting Brown. But even if they never give their relationship another shot, it looks like they could be well on their way to becoming friends.
