Nashville singer/songwriter, Ty Brown, was the latest suitor to get dumped by Ali Fedotowsky on this season ofÂ ABC‘sÂ The Bachelorette. During last week’sÂ episode, Ty was sent home in Portugal just barely missing the hometown dates. He opens up about his shocking elimination, his budding music career, and how awkward the 2-on-1 date with Frank really was…
Despite their romantic date in Turkey, Ty Brown and Ali Fedotowsky just couldn’t make things work. Ty, a country singer from Nashville, Tennessee, was the most recent bachelor to be rejected onÂ ABC‘sÂ The Bachelorette. After undergoing a painfully awkward 2-on-1 date with Ali Fedotowsky and fellow competitor, Frank, in Portugal, Ty Brown was sent packing.
“IÂ was shocked and disappointed,” Ty Brown says about the elimination. “No one wants to get let go especially at that stage in the show. But if I was not going to go be the last person there, it was relieving not to get my family involved.” The four guys remaining (Kirk, Frank, Chris L., and Roberto) will each have the opportunity to take Ali Fedotowsky to their hometowns to meet their respective families on tonight’s brand new episode.
Unfortunately for Ty, his last date with Ali Fedotowsky was an uncomfortable 2-on-1 date with Frank. “It was very uncomfortable although not as awkward at the time as it [looked on TV],” Ty says about the date. “We tried to make the best of it and make her comfortable. Thatâ€™s hard to do. We knew there wasnâ€™t going to be a rose. It was more about who was going to get more alone time with Ali. Frank and I were the worst two people to go together. We get along, but I knew she had a strong connection with first-date Frank. And he made a comment that Tyâ€™s my biggest competition.”
Ty received a little bit of flak this season for being the guy to pull out his guitar and sing to Ali Fedotowsky and now that the show is over, it should come as no surprise that he’s decided to pursue music full-time. “This gave me the opportunity to do something that Iâ€™m passionate about â€” to give music 150 percent instead of just dabbling,” Ty says. “Iâ€™ve been playing for 10 years and I want people to know Ty Brown, not Ty Brown fromÂ The Bachelorette. But the show has given me a platform and opened a lot of doors for me. When I finished the song I wrote on the show, it was amazing to see people jump on board saying, ‘This is a great song. Youâ€™ve got a great story with this.’â€
As for his future, Ty Brown is open to all of the possibilities, even potentially becoming the nextÂ Bachelor. “Itâ€™d be very exciting and Iâ€™m ready to move on with my life,” he says. “Watching what Ali struggled with, I know it would be tough but Iâ€™d consider it.”
