Tyler Cameron Just Became The Bachelorette’s Front-Runner — Here’s How

The current season of The Bachelorette has been pretty preoccupied with the great mystery that is the unhinged villainy of Luke Parker. Monday night’s fourth episode was so consumed by the chaos wrought by the Florida contestant that producers decided to focus on Luke’s intensifying feud with Luke Stone rather than an actual rose ceremony.

Yet, the latest episode also suggests another suitor may be coming to take Luke’s crown as season 15’s undeniable frontrunner.

MMIWG Report Presses Tory Senators To Pass UN Indigenous Rights Bill

GATINEAU, Que. — The final report of the national inquiry into missing and murdered Indigneous women and girls is urging the “immediate” passage of an NDP MP’s bill that Conservative senators have been pushing back on.
