The general contractor admitted in September 2019 that he was asked to be the Bachelor for season 24. “Yeah, it was something we talked about,” he told Entertainment Tonight. “Where I was at at my life … I just didn’t think it was where I wanted to be. My heart wasn’t in it.”
Cameron listed several reasons why he turned down the offer, including his brief relationship with Gigi Hadid and his father’s health. “You shouldn’t go on the show if you have a girlfriend … if you’re dating somebody or seeing somebody,” he hinted.
The TV personality continued: “I sat on it, thought about it, and my heart wasn’t in it. And that’s something you have to be fully invested in. I was on the other side of it as a contestant, which is a much easier role than being the lead of the show.”
