      @Mewgiah if the company loses enough money, the employees will not have a job. So it’s important for them to take a very strong stand to keep sponsors around. Imagine your business partner destroying your squeaky clean imagine and everything you built… just because of seggs

    As an HR professional frequently tasked with things like this - investigating into issues of sexual harassment and misconduct at work - I see the work you guys have put in, the internal team, and the great external consultants you've brought in to perform a thorough investigation, a resolution that closed the loop, and a great PR team to brainstorm scripting and next steps.
    Major kudos, and I cannot imagine the pain stemming from this. A controversy of this magnitude, with someone whose entire brand was "family man" and someone you've been tied to for close to a decade ... cannot imagine, but I know what picking up the pieces looks likes.
    I wish you, your team, and most of all Ariel, her family and Will are able to move forward after this.

      I’m currently studying business and if it’s ok I’d like to ask a question which you can answer or not, it’s totally up to you. But in this case and others where someone in a higher position happens to catch feelings for someone in the workplace, what would have been the right things to do on his part? Obviously ending his relationship with Ariel would have been the first step but talking about what should have been done in the workplace, would a relationship with an employee be possible and what steps should’ve been taken? Thank you

      @Joe ofc they're protecting their brand, they are public figures and in this business what he did is really serious

    • Joe

      Sorry Sara but if this is a case of a boss having a relationship with a subordinate without notifying the company than this is a ridiculous and over the top exercise in brand management.
      The man had an affair with a subordinate without telling the business. That’s inappropriate but they’re acting like he’s carried out serious illegal activity.
      If it comes out that he has done something illegal then sure. This would be an appropriate response. But an undisclosed relationship with a subordinate? Nah this is ridiculous. they’re protecting their brand. Nothing more.

      @ec not just that but you can't fire employees based on their personal life. It's against the law so she could sue them for that since her cheating with ned has nothing to do legally with her job

      @Skye Cheyenne Yes, I noticed that. I feel sad that Ned did this to his lovely wife, his colleagues and their staff. The media will tire of this story and move on to another "expose". It will take time for these 3 lovely men to recover from such a betrayal. I think we, the fans, will help bolster their lives and let them go on to bigger & better things.

      @wowee no, they are talking about their “without a recipe” series. They make something without having a recipe for it. Judges comment and rate them. It’s like a cooking show. And it’s what got them their show on the food network, “No Recipe Roadtrip”. On the show, they go to restaurants across the country to see who can make each spot's signature dish best with no recipes.

    That fact that they did a proper explanation and apology on behalf of someone else speaks volumes. Ned’s post sounded like a sad excuse and I’m sure now he will just hide behind while the guys are left to fix the damage. Thank you for acting so promptly and gracefully throughout this. I haven’t watched The Try Guys in a while, but this makes me support them even more than before.

They're trying so hard to do things the right way even though you can see the sadness and anger in their eyes.... Its heartbreaking. It really reassures me that they are and always have been authentically a family and its so fucking rough. Gonna binge watch all their videos now. I think they have everyone's support here.

      @Kaleb Nolan I'm sure the Try Guys are doing everything as legally as they can. I don't think you can fire an employee for sleeping with a boss, but you can fire a boss for sleeping with a subordinate. If she isn't fired due to leagl reasons I presume she'll quit at some point. The TGs office can't be a happy place at the moment.

    this honestly made me so sad. not at the fact that ned isn’t in the try guys anymore but because he really did fuck it up for all. the passion these 3 had towards the channel and the dedication they had towards the fans, it just made it even harder for them. i literally started crying of frustration because i’ve been a fan of the try guys for so long, and i will admit, i loved seeing ned and his personality mix with the other guys, now i just know it’s going to be a huge drastic change. i will forever be here for them 💜💚💙

    I watched the try guys a few years back and naturally drifted from their content but this situation, albeit terribly sad and unfortunate, has heightened my respect for these three men and the business they run. I am very impressed and proud of how far they have come and how they conduct themselves. This past week has reintroduced me to their content and I have enjoyed supporting the work of Eugene, Zack and Keith. I hope they know, because of their professionalism and pride, there is good to have come out of all this bad. Viewers have gained a more nuanced insight into the values of the Try Guys brand and they have earned the deeper respect of many.

    The fact that even Keith and Zach are completely solemn and Eugene somehow looks even more serious than usual really shows how hard this has hit them as people who considered ned a friend and valued fellow creator for so long. Really sucks that ned's harmful actions have so heavily and negatively impacted so many people an d he hasn't even properly taken accountability. Stay strong guys, and if it's any consolation, I and many other people have watched the videos were ned has been edited out, and still loved them and laughed all the way through them, even without ned. The creations that you have shared with the world are valued and appreciated by many. So sorry this has happened to you guys, Ariel and her kids. Best of wishes to you all. I'm sure all of us understand if it's not possible, but keeping Ariel on the team would be amazing. She's a kind, creative person who brings a lot to the channel, and she did nothing to deserve this hurt, nor did you guys. Keep being awesome

    When those branded videos come out, I hope people won’t boycott it just because they know Ned will be in it. While I don’t want to watch someone who’s done something like this, I do want to support the second try llc in how they’ve handled this situation. And metrics from those videos are important for how they’ll fund this new try guys era. Stay kind everyone. For the people who didn’t deserve any of this pain (especially when it’s happening in the public eye).

    "Exercise kindness"
    Yes. This is true of all things.
    I have never understood the prevalence and desire to attack the *woman* more than the man. It is astounding to me how the woman is always so easily vilified and the men seem to get off so much more easily in these situations.
    As though women are held to a much higher standard of behavior than men.
    It is repulsive.
    Exercise kindness in all things, all the time, with all persons. That should be the immediate response. There are innocents involved in all situations that do not deserve the vile and carnage.
    We love you Try Guys. We are here for you. We support you. Especially in this difficult time. We appreciate your response, we acknowledge your emotions, that you must time and temper your response, as well as we appreciate your candor and rawness.
    You are first and foremost *humans* . We respect you, we thank you, we are here for you.
    Go forward and do kind things.
    Much love.

    I just finished my master's in digital marketing and seeing all the speculation and fans calling you guys out for NED's actions rubbed me the wrong way bc a lot of people don't understand the intricacy of the HR / PR dynamic. When you study PR you learn that you can't release a statement immediately to the public even if you want to beat the gossip and rumours, because you need to gather all the information, you need to word it carefully, encompass the issue, create a dialogue for discussion etc. but on the flipside, like they said, they knew they had to say something sooner than later once social media went crazy. If you want an example of a company who does not handle their PR very well, take a look at Dolce & Gabbana - they have lacklustre apologies, never work to improve when they anger consumers, and often find themselves in a new crisis every few years.
    I'm honestly so impressed as a company how you have taken the HR process seriously, it sounds like every party was given their chance to speak. And it's a slow and exhausting (and expensive) procedure. Being this open and transparent as a brand is something I've been advocating for since my undergraduate dissertation, and I specifically stated that Gen Z especially will connect more with companies who are open and transparent because it helps establish trust. It's a comfort that you guys are proof you can do the right thing, even when it's difficult, and grow from this experience. I'm definitely going to keep watching bc I know the content will have so much passion behind it, and you + the team, Ariel and the boys and Bean, and Will, deserve the support for everything!

    I could almost see the steam coming Eugene's ears. The hurt and betrayal you all feel is almost palpable..and understandably so. What Ned (and said employee) did is so incredibly selfish, it's beyond words. It directly effects each and every person working in your company- and the company itself.
    Although I feel like most people should be able to realize that the mistake of two shouldn't reflect others, I also know the internet is a vicious place. I feel bad for all those not involved, that are most definitely getting harrased and attacked right now, unjustly.
    Personally, this doesn't change the way I think about the Try Guys or the channel. I will continue to watch, and really hope you are all able to recover from this.

    Usually wouldn't comment on something like this, but honestly it's so shocking at what had happened. I feel like it would be wrong for me to say how amazingly professional how strong everyone's been because that's not the point of this, but I give credit were credits due. Well done to try guys for coming out about it and doing the best you could to confirm the information and give a proper statement, and especially well done to the editing team for your hard work. This should have never happened but I hope Ned figures out and comes to terms with what he's lost and fixes himself to become a better person. Good luck to you all in the future try guys.

You three are wonderful human beings who deserve every ounce of success that's come your way, and this isn't going to change that. There's a new era of the Try Guys coming, and I for one am sure it will be beautiful. Sending you all so much love, keep your heads up, there's so much good stuff yet to come.

    My husband has always really been into rooster teeth and funhause etc, he’d watched them for YEARS... We met right around when it came out that two long time employees and creators were cheating on their wives and one was even speaking with minors- My husband was so upset and shaken by it and I just couldn’t understand why he cared so much about these random people on the internet…
    Seeing this video now I understand completely.
    I grew up watching the Try Guys, I’m married now and have my own family, and I am attached to these Flash-Playerrs and I have followed their lives for years. I trusted Ned, I found him being the “wife” guy endearing- I feel TOTALLY betrayed now, misled, and disappointed. It also adds to my own trauma of being cheated on in the past and makes me afraid that if Ned, the sweet guy that always talked about his wife 24/7 could cheat- then my loving, wonderful husband could too… I am glad Ned is off the team, but I am truly so sad now that I understand now, just how my husband felt two years ago.

    It honestly shocks me that Ned would do such a thing. The guy we THOUGHT would never cheat on his wife, who shows his "loyalty" the man himself. Did such a horrible thing..
    Try guys will always have a special place in my heart no matter what. But I am going to miss the old try guys..

    The anger in eugene’s eyes and the way Zach and Keith look ready to cry is honestly a bit hard to take, I can’t imagine what a week this has been for them. They’re taking it all with so much class and grace though, this is truly the first Flash-Player “press” release I’ve ever seen that feels incredibly genuine and to the point. I really feel for them and their staff. Here’s hoping for a bright future for the three of them

      @Eran Williams Exactly! 100% this. I had wanted to add that to my comment as well, that we are not entitled to know what Ned did immediately as it's none of our business but thought maybe it would be too harsh. People definitely need to remember that they were very kind enough to sit down on that sofa, and film this video for us all especially within weeks of the situation while they're struggling to come to the terms of the whole mess. I actually also had expected them to say something a year later at least about it once the whole matter has settled down personally and legally wise. (Also didn't expect them to provide subtitles with this video straight away either for us that are Deaf/Hard of hearing!)

    • Eran Williams
      Eran Williams 7 hours ago +3

      @Candy Apples I want to add to this, the humans involved owe NONE of us an explanation for any of it. It's a curtesy. They produce fire content and we consume it. Beyond that they dont owe any of us a thing about their personal emotional state or private feelings and experiences. Any of it they share, is a blessing and overly generous.
      If someone here in the comments feels entitled to ANYTHING from them, the are sick in the head. They are disturbed and dysfunctional.

      Saddest of all to me, in regards to the guys reactions in this video specifically, is the fact that we all know Eugene has the hardest time coping with and expressing his emotions. Most especially when he is sad, hurt or betrayed. Which means that anger we see is the best he can do to cover up just how badly he's taking this. I just truly feel he's the one taking it the worst out of the three.

    I'm so proud of the Try guys for being so proactive in the midst of all of this and handling it all with so much strength and morality. A few years ago with a different set of men, I'm fully confident that all this would've been slid under the carpet or brushed aside as men being men. Not with these guys though and so proud of them for that. Somehow I cant seem to fully blame Ned too, I'm sure he must've been going through something for him to have let himself be led astray but what he did was completely awful and my heart goes out for Ariel and the kids. They deserve way better. As mentioned though, my respect has gone up for Eugene, Zach, Keith and the rest of the team too. May you guys only continue to grow from here and be aware that your fans appreciate your efforts quite alot!

      ​@Nathan Olson I think they knew what Ned was like for a long time, but I don't think they knew about Alex until recently. He can cheat with a rando any time and it doesn't open them up to legal problems (or as much monetary problems). They're not stupid - they know the boss/employee thing is what will ruin their business - they would NEVER let it go on for those exact reasons.

The Try Guys brand is not just about who we see on the screen trying new things, it has become so much more than that and I can't wait to see what kind of content they'll bring us in the future!

    Not sure if this is possible (legally or privacy wise) but when you guys speak out more I'd love to know if Ariel is likely to be involved in any future Try Guy's stuff? Like I know she was usually involved as one of the wives and can definitely understand if she wants a clean break or isn't sure yet but I'm hoping we get to see more of her and I hope she knows how much support and love she has from fans.
    Also please make sure to take care of yourselves. This is a loss. You need time to grieve it. Take whatever time or space you guys need, everyone will always be here when you're ready. It's ok tot take a break for a while.

The way Keith has his arm on the couch and around Zach, you can just tell that they are all trying to hold each other together through this video. We will always support you and will always love you. So incredibly sorry that you, the staff, and families are going through this devastating time.

I'm proud of how gracefully they're handling such a messy situation, and I'll be looking forward to whatever content comes when they are able to deliver it.

    this feels so damn similar to what i went through when my father left after having an affair in 2020. i felt a strong understanding to their pain, how it was difficult to comprehend, how he seemed to not take full responsibility and not put me, or my sisters, and our feelings into the full scale. i've been NC with him since he's left but goddamn his emotional abuse still lingers with me.
    sorry i went on a tangent about myself there, i just understand the pain.

    What breaks my heart beyond how this has affected everyone is that Ned had become the symbol of what non-toxic masculinity can look like. There are so few examples of men being good fathers, being in love with their wives, and being all about their family in the media. In a world where we are more lonely than ever, Ned Fulmer had become a beacon of hope. Now, that's gone. He could have been an idol for this generation, but his "consensual workplace relationship" was more important. pfft.
    P.s. I am legit scared of Eugene in this video.

I’m glad they handled this so professionally, but I do want to hear all of their raw thoughts on this.

    Well done guys. You could have chosen to sweep this under the carpet but you stood up and said no, good on you and Thankyou
