Ex fiancé of Try Guys producer who cheated on him celebrates by raising a glass after affair leaked

The ex-fiancé of The Try Guys producer Alex Herring, who had an affair with married host and co-founder Ned Fulmer, raised a glass to his reclaimed bachelorhood on Instagram following the disintegration of his engagement due to the scandal.

Will Thayer was spotted on his friend Steven Cuzzort’s Instagram page, apparently toasting the end of his relationship.

‘Ma bois back in town. If ya know you know,’ reads the caption of the picture.

Images of Fulmer and Herring were posted online by Thayer after a clubgoer contacted Thayer about seeing Fulmer and Herring making out at a New York City club.

The clubgoer contacted a Reddit user who appears to be Herring’s fiance, Will Thayer. He then posted the messages he received to prove that Fulmer and Herring were making out. 

Fulmer, 35, is married to Ariel Fulmer, who made frequent appearances on the YouTube show with more than eight million subscribers. The couple also hosted a podcast together called Baby Steps – an unvarnished look at how they raise their ‘Instagram-worthy family’. The couple have two young boys together.

While the posts to Reddit only show grabs from the video and not the videos themselves, this was apparently enough for Thayer to conclude his fiancé had been unfaithful with Fulmer. 

Thayer then said he spoke to Fulmer’s wife Ariel for an hour about the allegations before he deleted all pictures with Herring from his Instagram and made his account private.

Much of it appeared to be unproven speculation until recently when The Try Guys released an official statement on their Instagram confirming Fulmer was no longer with the group.

‘Ned Fulmer is no longer working with The Try Guys. As a result of a thorough internal review, we do not see a path forward together. We thank you for your support as we navigate this change,’ the statement read. 

Fulmer released his own statement Tuesday evening, which read, ‘Family should have always been my priority, but I lost focus and had a consensual workplace relationship. I’m sorry for any pain that my actions may have caused to the guys and the fans but most of all to Ariel.

‘The only thing that matters right now is my marriage and my children, and that’s where I am going to focus my attention.’

Until earlier this month, the pair was seen loved-up across their content. They have previously been happy to commodify their seemingly perfect home-life and co-host a podcast together called Baby Steps – they even released a cookbook last year together called ‘The Date Night Cookbook.’ 

Following Fulmer’s statement, Ariel released one of her own, which read, ‘Thanks to everyone who has reached out to me – it means a lot. Nothing is more important to me and Ned than our family, and all we request right now is that you respect our privacy for the sake of our kids.’

Prior to confirmation of the affair and Fulmer’s release from the company, online speculation about the extra-marital scandal snowballed for days.

It is unclear is Alex Herring remains in the employee of The Try Guys, a group, which started at Buzzfeed in 2014 when the four men including Fulmer, Keith Habersberger, Zach Kornfeld and Eugene Lee Yang began making videos of themselves trying new things.

Herring starred in a separate Youtube show called Food Babies but also served as a producer for The Try Guys.  

Fans of the show noticed something was suspicious when Fulmer did not appear in recent The Try Guys videos, missed out on podcast episodes and even appeared to have been edited out of some videos. 

Ariel also missed out on recent episodes of You Can Sit With Us, a podcast comprised of each of The Try Guys’ wives.
