  • Gigi Hadid and "Bachelorette" star Tyler Cameron dated for several months in 2019.
  • Cameron recently admitted he had around $200 in his bank account then, making date nights hard.
  • He secretly asked his father to pay for some of his dates with Hadid, as a result.

Dating one of the highest-paid supermodels in the world is hard to do, particularly if you just have $200 in your bank account. Just ask "Bachelorette" star Tyler Cameron.

Cameron, who was a runner-up on season 15 of "The Bachelorette," dated Gigi Hadid for several months in 2019. During an appearance on Jason Tartick's "Trading Secrets" podcast this week, Cameron discussed his experience dating Hadid.

Tartick, in particular, recalled a conversation with Cameron in which the "Bachelorette" star opened up about his finances.

"He [Tyler] goes to me, 'Dude, I don't know what the fuck I'm doing," Tartick said. "I got $5,000 in my bank account. I don't know what my next job is, and I'm dating Gigi Hadid."

"Not even $5,000," Cameron replied. "I had like $200."

Cameron's financial situation was so dire at the time, he said, that he was sleeping at a friend's home in New York City.

"This is in my early days of living in New York City," he said. "I'm living on Matt's beanbag. Have no money, but I'm like the happiest I've ever been, because the world is wide open to me in New York City. I can do whatever I want."

While Cameron recalled that period fondly, there were several occasions when he needed help paying for dates with Hadid.

"I'd remember I'd be going on dates, and I'm like calling Pops up in the bathroom," Cameron explained. "I'm like, Pops, I don't think my credit card's gonna go through. I need you to send me some money right now. And he's like, you got it, son. Go get it!"

"At this point, I don't even know what a credit card is," he continued. "I got a straight debit card, so when you hit zero, you hit zero, you know. So I'm just crossing my fingers, hoping it swipes, and it just kept swiping."

Cameron appears to be doing better these days financially. He started a construction company in 2021 to follow in his father's footsteps of building homes. He is also a co-founder and ambassador for the charity organization ABC Food Tours, which helps children in underserved communities.
