Bachelorette fan-favorite, Tyler Cameron, honors his late mother at the first annual charity gala for the Andrea C. Cameron foundation.
Bachelor Nation stepped out in Jupiter, Florida, to support Bachelorette fan-favorite Tyler Cameron at his charity gala for The Andrea C. Cameron foundation, an organization honoring his late mother. Andrea Cameron passed away on February 29, 2020, after suffering from a brain aneurysm. The Jupiter native started the foundation along with his brothers, Ryan and Austin. The organization’s mission carries on their mother’s work by providing high school students with scholarships to attend universities or technical colleges.
Tyler won over the hearts of The Bachelorette fans when he appeared on Hannah Brown’s season in 2019. Tyler made it to the very end of season 15, when he proposed to Hannah during the finale. Hannah, however, rejected his proposal and accepted Jed Wyatt’s instead. Tyler and Hannah reunited at the “After The Final Rose” special where viewers learned Hannah and Jed had ended their engagement. In perhaps one of the most notorious Bachelorette moments, Hannah proceeded to ask Tyler for a second chance during the special. While the duo briefly reconnected, their reunion would be short-lived as Tyler proceeded to date model Gigi Hadid. Tyler and Hannah would reconnect once more with Andrea’s passing and Hannah’s brother, Patrick Brown’s, overdose.
The Palm Beach Post reported that the Cameron brothers’ first annual gala, held at The Pelican Club in Jupiter, saw no shortage of former Bachelor and Bachelorette stars as well as other notable local celebrities. Among the attendees were The Bachelor season 25 lead, Matt James, and his girlfriend, Rachael Kirkconnell. Tyler and Matt have been best friends long before they joined Bachelor Nation, having attended Wake Forest college together; however, recently there has been speculation that Rachael had caused a rift between the friends. During the event, Tyler, Rachael, and Matt seemed to poke fun at the rumors as they posed for a photo and acted as if Matt needed to separate Rachael and Tyler from fighting. Matt posted the photo on his Instagram while Tyler referenced the rumors in a new White Claw sponsored social post.
Bachelor Nation Was Spotted Supporting Tyler Cameron At The Gala
Former Bachelor contestants Kelsey Weier and Kelley Flanagan, as well as former season 24 lead, Peter Weber, were also in attendance. Peter and Kelley, who were spotted dancing together at the event, have also been making headlines lately as they seem to have reignited their romance. Other prominent gala attendees included bridal designer, Hayley Paige, her fiancé Conrad Louis, and social media influencer, Alli Martinez. Former NFL tight end and Florida native, Nick O’Leary, and his wife, Mallory, also showed support for the cause. A news release obtained by the Palm Beach Post described the ethos of the foundation as “…a world in which students can achieve their full potential, forge positive relationships, and, above all else, take action to change the world. Known for her generosity and charm, Andrea always went beyond the call of duty to help those in need.”
Tyler has come a long way since his stint on The Bachelorette in 2019. His good looks, and respectful and chivalrous character during Hannah’s season, helped him gain a substantial following. Tyler appears to be using his platform to propel his philanthropic and business ventures. The Cameron brothers are making good on their promise to honor their mother’s legacy. Sept. 22 marked the first of what is sure to be many annual galas for the Andrea C. Cameron Foundation.
