Oh to be one of the weights Tyler Cameron flings around at the gym. On Sept. 12, the “Bachelor” star posted yet another one of his shirtless workouts on TikTok starring a certainly accidental crotch shot. Within seconds, fans made a little observation — and quickly flooded the comments section.
“I’m sorry is that a PIERCING????!!!!,” one user demanded to know. “Not it being pierced 👀,” wrote another. “The piercing is very punk rock of him,” one fan concluded. Soon after, searches for “Tyler Cameron’s piercing” skyrocketed. At pretty much any given moment since that fateful day, you can go onto any one of Cameron’s social media profiles and see a comment about this mysterious piercing.
It seems that he got the hint because, on Sept. 15, Cameron finally addressed the very parched masses. “All right guys I keep seeing the comments about is my d*ck pierced or not,” he starts. “I’m currently having lunch right now and it’s inappropriate to pull it out at the table so let’s take a trip, go to the bathroom . . . I’m gonna show you guys once and for all so you guys know what I’m talking about and you can see what I’m working with.”
As the reality star lifts his shirt in the mirror and angles the phone down, the video cuts to a woman who is for some reason under a blanket asking to take your order at Chilli Rings. A masterclass in the subtle art of telling people to mind their business.
Replying to @Camilla Marie is it piececd or not???
To be fair, Cameron’s response is very much warranted in this instance. Piercings are a personal decision, especially ones that reside on your nether regions. No one should feel pressured to reveal anything about their bodies if they don’t want to, whether they post shirtless, sweaty, quite frankly quiver-inducing gym selfies on Instagram or not. It says a lot about society’s insistence to know everything — above or below deck — about famous people, but we can assure you: confirming a celebrity’s genital piercing will not solve all of life’s problems.
Alas, the mystery continues and until it’s known for sure, Bachelor Nation will continue to thirst. You know what might help? Gatorade.
