Tyler Cameron Claims He Was So High While Auditioning For The Bachelorette He Thought Producers Were Taking Pictures Of Him In The Bathroom

Source - Tyler Cameron revealed he took a secondary trip when he was flown out to Los Angeles for his audition on "The Bachelerotte."

In his new memoir/self-help book "You Deserve Better: What Life Has Taught Me About Love, Relationships, and Becoming Your Best Self," the former model recalled how he tried out for the reality dating show -- instead of the WWE -- and wound up using his meal stipend from ABC to opt for a different type of tasty treat.

"Recreational marijuana had been legalized in California, and I thought this would be the perfect chance to go see one of these dispensaries everyone had been talking about," he wrote, explaining how he ended up buying edibles.

"I didn't even know how to smoke a joint or anything like that," he added to Insider. "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 would go on to meet a friend for dinner, which is where the drug really started to kick in. "I was like, 'Holy smokes, I am so, so, so high,'" he recalled to the outlet. "All I could do was laugh and eat my food." He claimed he was so paranoid from the edilbes that he believed "Bachelor" producers were taking pictures of him in the restaurant bathroom and that his Uber driver was even in on the spying shenanigans. 

Been there, brother. Last time I was "paranoid high" was during the 2019 Barstool Breakfast Christmas Party. We smoked a joint in the studio and finished up right as Erika was getting into the office (work day). Needless to say she wasn't pleased and it didn't help that the entire office reeked. I felt like a high school kid getting caught by his mom. The worst part is I wasn't even going to smoke because I knew I would get paranoid, but Francis and Willie guilted me into it. They somehow also thought it didn't smell? Even though we were in a 10x10 windowless box in the middle of a densely populated office? We should've used a sploof...




That or not smoked at all. Regardless, this story about Tyler made me laugh. Here's what he had to say about when he got back to the hotel…

"I immediately crawled into bed and hid under the blankets," he wrote in his book. "I swear I heard someone knocking at the door, but it might have just been my paranoia. Either way, I didn't answer, and I was careful not to make a sound. I stayed hidden under those covers until morning."

"The whole flight home, I thought to myself, I am going to get cut," he continued. "At that point, I figured the producers knew I had been high and that I'd broken curfew. There was no way I was going to get on this show after my behavior. I couldn't believe I had blown it."

What a nightmare. The good news is he ended up making the show and having arguably a more successful career than 99.9% of his fellow contestants. Live and learn, friends. Check out his most recent interview with Ria and Fran HERE
