OMG, you Guys. I don’t say that lightly. I just got an email from my friend Anne with a link to a People.com article telling me that Tierra is engaged. WTF, you might ask? If this information is correct (it’s from a WetPaint article), Tierra’s older brother, Tyler, revealed that Tierra was dating someone seriously before the show and they were living together in Las Vegas. They had a bad break-up and she moved back to Denver and signed up for the show. According to Tyler (who would not reveal the name of Tierra’s new fiance), the fiance realized he had lost his sparkle (Tierra) and was determined to get her back. He tried calling her but her phone was turned off (show rules) and then he reached out to Tierra’s family and even contacted ABC to figure out where she was.
As Tyler tells it – the day she got the boot from St. Croix, the fiance was actually on his way there. At the St. Croix airport, Tierra got her phone back, turned it on and got a call from him saying he was on his way there. She said to meet her in Colorado, which he did. That was back in November and they apparently got engaged in January.
The timing of this news is all very suspicious, since it’s revealed after she was basically self-humiliated on this week’s episode. Or maybe she’s not allowed to announce anything until after she’s booted off. Truthfully, I think SHE is not allowed to say anything about her relationship status until the season is done airing (unless it’s via ABC). So her brother did the work for her. CRAZY news!!!
