Despite (temporarily) winning the heart of "Bachelorette" star Hannah Brown, Jed Wyatt is a bachelor once again.
Following the explosive season finale of ABC's "The Bachelorette," Wyatt went on "Good Morning America" to set the record straight and share his side of his fallout with Brown.
To recap: Wyatt sparked backlash following reports he was in a relationship when he went on the dating show. Wyatt ended up winning the show, earning the final rose from Hannah.
The season finale showed the two enjoying their engagement ‒ until Wyatt's past came to light. In a dramatic turn of events, Brown announced during the live finale that she and Wyatt were no longer together. She then asked out the runner-up, Tyler Cameron.
"We had discussed that situation prior to the article, and then we discussed it the day before the article actually came out, so we had touched a lot of bases on it, but still I was fearful and held out on some of the details," Wyatt said told "Good Morning America."
Despite the messy breakup, Wyatt said he still loves Brown.
"I do have closure now knowing that she has moved on, but it still hurts, because I love her and I do want the best for her, but, ultimately, I have to just move on," he said. "I'm sure we'll reconnect in some way. We're on decent terms with each other, and we can still be friends I hope, and that's all I can ask for."
Wyatt said he still considers Cameron a friend.
"I had a feeling something was up, and I couldn't really put a finger on it when I was there that day," Wyatt said, when asked how he felt when Brown asked Cameron to go on a date. "I know there was a lot of nerves, a lot of tension, but her happiness is my best interest. I want her to be happy, and Tyler is one of my friends. He's a great guy, and if that's what's supposed to be, then I support that."
In an Instagram post Wednesday, Cameron praised Brown for the "strength and grace" she showed as the Bachelorette, adding he's "[l]ooking forward to that drink."
Brown commented, "I’m really thankful for your love and support. You’re the best, and I’m glad America thinks so too. And...see ya soon! Cheers."
Though Wyatt owns up to making mistakes, he wants the Bachelor Nation to leave his family out his drama.
"That's been one of the hardest parts of all this... seeing how it affected my family, and knowing that it's not their fault. They didn't sign up for this," said Wyatt, who revealed on Instagram in June his family has received threats from fans.
Brown told USA TODAY fans should remember Wyatt is a person too.
"They're real people; they're not characters," she said of Wyatt and Luke Parker, another controversial contestant from this season.

Wyatt said the show has left him with some regrets.
"I do obviously wish that I had been more detailed and more open to her earlier on, and it absolutely will affect how I am as a person," he said. "You know, this whole show really opened my eyes to a lot of things and changed me in a lot of ways, and with my newfound perspective, I hope to move forward and be a better man."
