The Try Guys are a fab foursome of YouTube dudes who take on zany and wacky tasks with a charming zeal and oomph.  Ned Fulmer, Zack Kornfeld, Eugene Lee Yang, and Keith Habersberger who make up the Try Guys got their start in Buzzfeed videos in the early 2010s, and quickly went viral for videos where they tried on women’s underwear, or attempted to recreate signature dishes with aplomb.

Ned Fulmer is one of those loveable TGs whose schtick involves gushing about his love for his wife, Ariel Fulmer, in almost every video. But now, the internet is rife with speculation that goofy Ned has cheated on Ariel with *his associate producer* Alexandria Herring, whom you might know from The Food Babies. Sounds out of left field for Ned’s online persona, right? Reddit and Twitter have alleged receipts.

Reddit was the first platform to cast aspersions on Ned’s fidelity when fans noticed he hadn't appeared in The Try Guys' latest YouTube videos at all in September. In fact, the Reddit thread pointed out how their regular intro reel was altered to remove all traces of him, and only Kornfeld, Yang, and Habersberger appear. They also pointed out the curious editing of some of the videos, where it was choppy, seemingly insinuating that Ned had actually been present for filming, but edited out in post production.

Soon after, the TG’s announced they will only be releasing one video a week in October, which Netizens speculated was due to the group scrambling to re-edit and re-shoot their videos to not include Ned.

Then, a Reddit user who goes by the name of hamilton390 stated that he saw Ned at a nightclub in New York, kissing another woman in a red dress, assumed to be Alex. The user actually included (albeit grainy) video of the alleged canoodle, and even carried on a convo with Ned’s wife Ariel Fulmer.

If that wasn’t enough, others discovered that Alex’s fiancé Will Thayer deleted all the photos of the pair from his Instagram account, which one can assume came after the supposed-cheating came to his attention. Soon afterward, he made his account private, and does not follow Alex anymore on the platform.

If all this info is making your head spin, this Twitter thread breaks it down into handy sections (because Twitter is low-key obsessed with this, and we need answers).

Shortly after the news started gaining traction, the Try Guys made a short but definitive statement on the situation. They said that they have officially cut ties with Ned "as a result of a thorough internal review."

Of course, this comes on the heels of some other notable men who have gushed about how much they love their wives, and then were caught in infidelity scandals. Last year, comedian John Mulaney, who quite often included his romance with his wife Anna Marie Tendler in his stand up routines, was accused of cheating on her with Olivia Munn. Mulaney and Munn now share a child together and have gone public with their relationship. More recently, Maroon 5 crooner Adam Levine has had to publicly admit he “crossed a line” when he sent inappropriate messages to women on Instagram. Several women have come forward with screenshots of DMs the singer sent them, despite him being married with children. 

Now with Ned from TG in the mix, fans cannot help but connect the dots.

Many other fans of TG and Ned are feeling betrayed and shocked by the news. So much so, “Ned Fulmer” has been a trending topic on Twitter all day.
