The Try Guys, YouTube's trusty quartet willing to try everything once, said it parted with executive producer Ned Fulmer following allegations that he cheated on his wife, Ariel Fulmer, adding to 2022's tally of relationships ruined by infidelity.
Like Maroon 5's Adam Levine who wanted to name his wife's baby after his alleged mistress, evidence of cheating against Fulmer came via Instagram. Photos and screenshots don't lie.
"Ned Fulmer is no longer working with The Try Guys," the remaining Try Guys—Keith Habersberger, Zach Kornfeld, and Eugene Lee Yang—said in a statement.
"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," they said.
Though the three did not address Fulmer's cheating allegations, ex-Try Guy Fulmer released a statement on his Twitter saying, "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," he added.
Fulmer's character on the channel was greatly hinged on his love for his wife, Ariel, an interior designer by profession, explaining the shock and disbelief that ripped through the internet when users on the Try Guys Reddit listed evidence to support Fulmer's removal from the group.
In a now-deleted post, the Reddit user cited Fulmer's absence in recent Try Guys videos and podcasts, attempts to edit him out, and a scaled-down video upload schedule as proof that the Try Guys would be proceeding as a three-man band.
Cheating allegations surfaced when an Instagram user messaged the Reddit user with photographic evidence that Fulmer was spotted getting touchy with a producer who creates content for the Try Guys channel.
The Reddit user claims they had an hour-long conversation with Ariel regarding the matter and noted that staff from the channel have since unfollowed Fulmer on Instagram.
According to the Reddit user, the alleged third party was engaged at the same time she and Fulmer pursued the relationship. A look through Instagram shows that she and her fiancee have unfollowed each other.
"The only thing that matters right now is my marriage and my children, and that's where I'm going to focus my attention," Fulmer said.
Ariel likewise said she would focus on family.
"Thanks to everyone who reached out to me - it means a lot," she said on Instagram. "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."
