AceShowbiz - The next season of "The Bachelor" will see Peter Weber as the new lead. However, it has been revealed that fans could have seen Tyler Cameron as the next Bachelor if only he said yes to the offer.
"It was something we talked about," the runner-up in Hannah Brown's "The Bachelorette" season revealed to Entertainment Tonight's Lauren Zima on Tuesday, September 24. As for the reason why he didn't the talk didn't go through, the model said, "You shouldn't go on the show if you have a girlfriend."
Tyler, who is now dating Gigi Hadid, went on saying in his first on-camera interview, "My heart wasn't 100 percent there, and that's something you have to be fully invested in. I was on the other side as a contestant, which is a much easier role than being the lead of the show."
He also added that his dad's health, which also almost prevented him from appearing on "The Bachelorette", also played a big factor in his decision not to accept the offer. "My dad was very sick and I was very nervous and scared," he shared. "I sat on it, thought on it, and my heart wasn't in it."
"He's bouncing back," he continued speaking of his dad. "It's tough because when you're in New York, you can hear it in his voice when he's not feeling good and when he is feeling good. So lately, every time I call him, he's been sounding good, so that's awesome."
"He's been an amazing support system through this. There's times where I want to just go home and see him and hang out and he's like, 'No, stay up there, do what you gotta do,' " he added. "Hopefully I'll get him up to New York soon. He wants to see the leaves change and all that."
Tyler then weighed in on Peter being the next Bachelor, saying, "I think Peter's going to be amazing. I'm excited to watch Peter." He went on raving, "He's just -- he's got so much joy in that smile, and he's got that subtle swagger... he's great."
"I think he will fall hard for somebody. He may fall hard for a couple people because we saw it with Hannah. It's tough. It's a very hard position to be in. I think he's got a genuine heart. It's going to hurt him to say goodbye to people, but he's a class act," he added. "Look at his family. He comes from an amazing family."
He also sent message for Peter. "Peter, keep killing it brother. I'm proud of you. I'm so stoked for you," he said. "Go find your girl!"
