Tyler Cameron opens up about his life-changing moments
In the book, Tyler explained that he got really stoned on the day of his final audition for The Bachelorette. The reality star was convinced he would never get cast on the series so he decided his first experience with marijuana would be while visiting the City of Angels.
He admitted he experimented with edibles after his final round of interviews for the series in Los Angeles, California.
“I remember just being so paranoid and freaking out,” he said. “I was like, ‘Man, they for sure saw me like that, and there’s no way they’re getting me on the show.”
In the book, reported Insider, Tyler admitted that when he applied for The Bachelorette, he sent in his paperwork with “the douchiest picture of myself that I could find.”
That same day, he also applied for World Wrestling Entertainment.
One week after submitting his paperwork, Tyler heard from the show’s producers. He endured a Skype interview and an in-person audition in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, before heading to Los Angeles.
It was there that Tyler’s experiment went wrong
After his Los Angeles audition, Tyler claimed he was given money for dinner and told to “go have fun in L.A.”
“I didn’t even know how to smoke a joint or anything like that,” he revealed. “So I wasn’t going to start there. I was going to start with the edibles – which is probably the worst thing to start with.” He asked a woman who worked at the store where he purchased the item how much she ate, and she told him. Because she was so little, Tyler took more than she normally used.
After meeting a friend for dinner, Tyler claimed he began to get paranoid and believed producers from the show were following him.
“I went to the bathroom and thought they were taking pictures of me in there,” he told Insider. He also believed his Uber driver was working for the show and caught him.
Producers of The Bachelorette were none the wiser about Tyler’s experiment, and he was cast on the series.
The Bachelorette airs Mondays at 8/7c on ABC.
