While there were a number of different headlines from Monday night’s The Bachelorette, one of the most important ones was actually not given much attention at all from the show. This was the abrupt exit of Tyler Gwozdz from the series apparently following allegations of bad behavior that first were posted on Reddit and spread throughout the internet. The claims came from an anonymous account and have not been verified; meanwhile, ABC itself has not commented on the subject.

Yet, for the first time, Tyler has spoken out himself on the subject. Speaking in a new piece over at Refinery29, he proclaimed the information online to be false — he also claimed that his exit from the show came about via a mutual decision with producers:
“Addressing totally unsubstantiated rumors posted to Reddit from an anonymous account seems imprudent … I feel that even addressing them gives them some sort attention and fuel but I continue to have faith in my journey and in a purpose for everything that’s happened to me in my life. Above everything else I am a son to my mother. She raised me to be better than these sort of baseless accusations. The rumors are so far out of the realm of my personality and values that it seems silly to waste time denying, but I suppose I will for the record. BUT I will be alright.”
Do we think that we will ever see Tyler appear on the show again? Probably not. This doesn’t seem to be the sort of situation that The Bachelorette likes addressing, mostly because it would suggest that they cast someone who wasn’t a good fit on the show, More than likely, this is a story that will fade into the background and not be brought up on The Men Tell All. Meanwhile, it’s fair to say that he’s done with Bachelor in Paradise or virtually anything else within Bachelor Nation at all. This is someone who is going to slip off into the radar and we won’t hear a peep from him ever again.
Now, the show must go on — we know that for The Bachelor as a franchise, the best thing that they can ever hope for is living in a world where there aren’t any pre-show scandals at all. It’s probably a little idealistic to think we’ll ever get there, but at least this time around the producers elected to handle the situation rather than allowing it to overwhelm their series as a whole.
