This summer’s most talked-about coupling was, without a doubt, Gigi Hadid and Bachelorette star Tyler Cameron. But don’t confuse coupling with couple: The two never officially confirmed anything. In fact, according to multiple reports, they were just hanging out. “Although Gigi and Tyler are spending more and more time together, they are still casually dating," a source told Entertainment Tonight in August. “The two are enjoying building a friendship first, going on dates, and having fun. Nothing more than that right now.”
Hadid and Cameron’s origin story is quite interesting. If you’ll recall, Cameron was Hannah Brown’s first runner-up on this season of The Bachelorette, but after things went awry with the man she actually picked, fans were hoping for the two of them to get together. And they did—sort of—for one night in Los Angeles earlier in the summer. Days later, though, Cameron was spotted in New York City seemingly on a date with Hadid. A media frenzy quickly ensued.
Hadid and Cameron have gone out a few times since that initial date. Read on for a timeline of the relationship (or whatever it is), below, and check back here often for new information.
August 4: A date at the Soho/Dumbo House. This is where it all began. Hadid and Cameron were first spotted together hanging out at this exclusive social club in Brooklyn. Fans, naturally, went wild.
August 5: Bowling in New York City. A more casual second date. For this outing, Hadid and Cameron were joined by friends. According to People, the group bowled for a few hours before leaving to do some karaoke.
August 12: An apartment hangout. Paparazzi caught Cameron and Hadid leaving Hadid’s apartment at separate times. “Gigi looked good,” an insider told E! News. “She was casual and seemed very chill. It seems like they are definitely spending more time together and growing close.”
August 15: Upstate. Gigi Hadid and Tyler Cameron’s last public appearance was in upstate New York. According to Page Six, they and two friends were on a road trip of sorts. A fan snapped a photo of the twosome at a Starbucks. See it for yourself here.

“Gigi brought him over to Taylor Swift’s section and they chatted,” their source said. “Tyler and Gigi were dancing all night. He had his arms wrapped around her and was kissing the back of her neck.
