You may have heard about The Try Guys scandal, which set the internet alight and involved Ned and Ariel Fulmer, a producer on the show. The video company founded by Ned and three former BuzzFeed employees, Keith Habersberger, Zach Kornfield, and Eugene Lee Yang, rose to incredible acclaim and popularity. With that kind of meteoric rise comes an interest in the personal lives of those involved.

Scandal and drama would hit the show in 2022, with rumors abounding about Ned’s affair with a company employee. Before long, everyone was on board, and the affair became public knowledge.

Update on Ned and Ariel Fulmer

The Try Guys would cut ties with Ned over the consensual affair that happened between Ned and employee Alexandria Herring. Leaked footage of the pair would lead to the scandal and his departure from the show.

Social media would clarify much of what happened, and posts from September 2022 on Ariel’s Instagram page would state:

“Thanks to everyone who reached out to me — it means a lot. Nothing is more important to Ned and me than our family, and all we request right now is that you respect our privacy for the sake of our kids.”

This comment does seem to imply that the couple may have been trying to work things out between themselves.

On September 28th, 2022, Ned and Ariel confirmed they were still together. They were photographed walking side by side with their wedding rings still on in Los Angeles. With their silence on social media and no announcements to the contrary, it seems that the couple is still together.

There has been no news of a separation or divorce, and it would appear that the couple is trying to put the affair behind them and concentrate on their family.

Previously, the troubled couple stated that their family and children are the most important thing in their lives, so it would seem they are still trying to make things work, and we are all hoping that things do work out for them.

Ned Fulmer and the Try Guys Future

The extramarital affair did not sit well with the team behind the show, and Ned was absent from uploads around the time of the scandal. Alex, as she was known on the show, was also in a long-term relationship at the time of the affair with Ned.

In a tweet shortly after the rumors of the affair became public, the team would say:

“Ned Fulmer is no longer working for The Try Guys. As a result of a thorough internal review, we do not see a path forward together.”

The official and personal accounts of each team member have unfollowed Ned, and there seems to be no chance of the old band getting back together. Both Ned and Ariel have gone on a social media hiatus since their last posts in September and August 2022, respectively.
