During an episode of Bachelor Happy Hour, Rachel Lindsay and Ali Fedotowsky-Manno's podcast, Hannah B. tried to be polite about Tyler's romantic exploits.

"We are not dating-dating, at all, we hung out, but we also had conversations of both, like, knowing that there’s still something there," she said, via People. "When you are in the public eye, you do have to just be respectful of each other. And yeah, I wish I would’ve got a little bit more than two days. But, you know, it is okay."
