One of the prominent storylines in the first season of Netflix's Selling the OC was Tyler Stanaland's close friendships with his colleagues.

During filming, Tyler got a "nosey" from Alexandra "Alex" Hall, and he had to swerve a kiss from Kayla Cardona. At the time when the show was shot, Tyler was married to Pitch Perfect actress Brittany Snow. Some fans (and Tyler's co-star Alexandra Rose) thought it was inappropriate that the ladies were so close to him while he was married.

In short, Tyler appears to be single as of this writing. But he and Alex are still fresh news. Let's dive into their relationship.

In the Season 2 finale episode on Selling the OC, after a long season in which the two grew even closer, Tyler and Alex ended up making out in a hot tub. But Tyler revealed to Us Weekly ahead of the sophomore season's premiere in September 2023 that fans would have to wait for Season 3 to get more insight on what's going on between the pair.

“I think we’re still navigating our friendship," he told the mag. "Obviously, you see in Season 2 [that] we explore some things. It leads to a steamy moment and I think we’re still kind of trying to figure it out, but we remain really close friends and I don’t have an answer [on where we stand] for you at the moment."

Meanwhile, Alex told Women's Health in September 2023 that the relationship "changed because we kissed." She went on to say: "He poured his heart out. I am not made of stone, [so] things changed." But she also said she had "no regrets" about what went down.

While things seemed to have blossomed further between Tyler and Alex in Season 3 of Selling the OC, there was a lot of back-and-forth between the two, and the season ultimately ended with Alex appearing to be headed to Italy to see a mystery man.

She went on to explain that “There were some revelations that surfaced right after we finished filming season 3, and so it gave me a lot more clarity and understanding of why he was behaving certain ways, and I was really able to have closure, because I could wrap my head around it."

Tyler Stanaland's sexuality was brought into question over "flirtatious" texts.

During Season 3 of Selling the OC, Sean Palmieri dished on the supposed "flirty" texts he received from Tyler around the time he and Brittany split. He also admitted to Ali and Alexandra that he and Tyler would "hang out three times a week" He divulged, "He'd cook me dinners. All these things." But, it appears as though Sean felt he was getting mixed signals from Tyler.

Furthermore, Sean also says he would receive messages from Tyler that said, "It feels like a lifetime if I don't hear from you for a day" and would often include a heart emoji. In a confessional, Tyler responded to that with, "If a heart emoji is inappropriate, then I'm inappropriate with everybody I text."

Given the substantial uncertainty surrounding the texts, it's still hard to decipher what really went down between the two.

Though Brittany and Tyler did not share why they decided to break up, an inside source told People that distance had strained their marriage, but that Tyler's participation on Selling the OC was "the final straw." The insider told the outlet: "Brittany never wanted Tyler on the show but he was adamant. He wanted to make a name for himself on his own terms."

Another source said that the two likely would not reconcile. "They're fully over. All of the girls [on the show] are obsessed with him," the second source added. "He's been trying to be really respectful but it's taken a toll on his marriage 100 percent."

During a March 2024 appearance on the Call Her Daddy podcast, when asked how she felt after watching things go down between her now ex-husband and the other women on the show, Brittany replied, “I was not aware of a lot of things." She added, “I will say what people think happened, happened.”
