Tyler thinks even further ahead when it comes to social media love aversion. “Do I want my kids in the future to be like, ‘Where did you meet Mom?’ and I’d be like, ‘Oh, I DM’d her on Instagram.’ No!”
Tyler claims that it hasn’t always been this way. After all, his entire introduction into Bachelor Nation is thanks to shooting his shot at Rachel in that manner. He explained that he was a professional photographer and had a shot at Rachel in this manner. “I DM’d her before I even knew I was going to be on the show.”
So what did Tyler’s DM have to say?
“During the season, it was like the second episode, and I thought she was gorgeous,” Tyler said. “I was just like, ‘Hey, if things don’t work out with Clayton [Echard] and you ever end up as The Bachelorette, sign me up because I think you’re gorgeous.’ Two weeks later, I got a call asking if I was interested in the show.”
Rachel is calling Tyler “a good friend of mine”Tyler stated that they have been in touch since Tyler’s season ended without a proposal.
