Bachelorette Fans Are Lining Up to Date Tyler C. After His Respectful Fantasy Suite Speech
The Bachelorette's highly anticipated fantasy suite episode finally aired on Monday, and holy smokes, it did not disappoint. The infamous windmill mystery gets solved (we're looking at you, Peter the "Not-So-Innocent" Pilot), Hannah finally bids Luke Parker adieu after a fiery argument, Jed Wyatt successfully resists the urge to whip out his guitar for an entire date, and last but most certainly not least, Tyler Cameron seals his status as a fan favourite and makes viewers swoon by putting his gentlemanly ways on display.
Tyler and Hannah kick off their pre-fantasy suite one-on-one time by getting hot and heavy (and oiled-up) on a massage table. Later on, Hannah uses the evening portion of their date to express her "concern" about their physical connection being such a huge part of their relationship. "I feel like our relationship has been so fun, so easy, and I am so excited to continue growing in our emotional relationship and communication and getting to know each other in that way," Hannah says, before dropping a surprising twist. "I don't want to go into the fantasy suite and have sex, because I don't feel like that's what our relationship needs," she adds. "It would be very easy for me to want to do that." Yep, our jaws hit the floor, too.
Tyler is very understanding of Hannah's desire for boundaries, and he responds with quite the chivalrous declaration. "The fantasy suite has the connotation of sex. For me, it's way more than that. I just want to be with you and have that time with you," the Florida native says. "I would never press you or pressure you at all. I want you to be 100 percent comfortable and confident in whatever we do together." Tyler goes on to say that he's grateful Hannah has gotten him to "open up so much" before stating, "I can stand here today and tell you I do love you." The two enjoy a PG-rated evening together in a boat, with the cameras giving them a whole lot more privacy compared to Hannah's fantasy suites with Jed and Peter.
To be clear, Tyler's respect for Hannah is the exact level of respect every woman deserves in a relationship, televised or not, but that hasn't stopped Bachelorette fans from live-tweeting about their deep admiration for Tyler's boundaries-honouring speech and how other men should follow suit. Ahead, see what viewers are saying about Tyler's fantasy suite conversation with Hannah. Men, take notes.
