Halfway through Monday’s episode of The Bachelorette, Hannah casually revealed that Tyler Gwozdz was no longer part of the cast, just one week after he got the season’s first one-on-one date. “Tyler G. had to leave, and that’s upsetting, because I really enjoyed my date with him,” she told the camera — but then quickly moved on.
So, what happened? Tyler was reportedly removed by production amid online comments — and an accusatory Reddit thread –about his behavior. When asked by ET about her connection with Tyler last week, however, Hannah didn’t imply anything was off.
“I think the date went really good,” she shared. “We didn’t see our conversation the first night, but he just has a gentle spirit about him.”
“I feel like he was a really good first date for me, because obviously my first dates don’t always go that well,” she joked, referencing her awkward first date with Colton Underwood on The Bachelor. “[Tyler] was just really calming and nurturing for me to feel confident going into these one-on-ones, because that’s a long time with a person with a very intimate… well… as intimate as you can get.”
The Alabama native had nothing but good things to say about Tyler — but told ET that she would have no problem confronting men if something wasn’t to her liking.
“I handle things directly, in my own beast way,” she said with a laugh, when asked how she’d confront a scandal on her season. “Absolutely [guys felt the wrath of the beast]. They’re probably still in the corner shaking, as they should.”
Hannah also said she has no regrets about everything that went down. “I think about this a lot, because sometimes watching it back or thinking about things, I’m like, ‘Ah, maybe I should have not said that or done this.’ But ultimately, no, because everything that happened, it has got me to where I am now, and I’m stronger,” she said. “I’m more empowered, I’ve grown and I’ve learned so much. So, no.”
“So homesick. Looking through my phone I found this,” Momoa began his post. “Off the road some quiet parking lot in donegal. It was an amazing simple moment with my best friend @captainriff .
“While filming GOT we had a lil break We were to [sic] broke to fly home so we rented a panel van aka UHAUL in Belfast and drove around beautiful amazing IRELAND searching for the greatest pint of Guinness,” he recalled. “Turns out it’s perfect everywhere.”
“So many wonderful people and stories I treasure those times It was the simplest moments I remember the most,” Momoa continued. “I still miss my family. Been a long road and I feel like I’m just getting started. On the roam Needs to go home. Ps ill ask Brian for more pics he’s got the gold. Aloha j.”
Since his role on “Game of Thrones,” Momoa has gone on to star on the big screen as Aquaman in three feature films. He will reprise his role as the superhero in 2022’s “Aquaman 2.”
