Exclusive: Lisa Hyde Opens Up About Her Romance with Male Model Tyson Mayr

Blake Garvey sobbed like a giant Cabbage Patch Doll when he said goodbye to Lisa Hyde on national TV, so we hope no cameras are around when he finds out she’s happy with someone who upstages the stripping love rat on so many levels.

Meet Tyson Mayr: male model, travel series host, “Best Job in the World” winner, and Lisa’s new boyfie. Oh, and now he’s a contestant on I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!, so he’s about to become, in real estate terms for Blake’s sake, very hot property. Burn.

It’s a beautiful union, not only because he’s a model and she’s a fashion designer, but because Tyson and Lisa didn’t get together with the help of 20-plus other potential girlfriends and red-petalled shrubs. Even though the pair are technically both reality TV stars, there’s no bogus bullshit here.

In fact, the Shevoke designer and “professional traveller” have been together for almost three months, after meeting at Gold Coast Turf Club’s Melbourne Cup Day, and haven’t even made that big of a deal about it.

Sure, a few Instagram snaps here and there plus the help of Sam Frost’s big mouth have given us the feeling that these two are probably very, very happy, but other than that the pair have been quite tight-lipped.

“We both wanted to take things slow and get to know each other before making it official,” Lisa explained to theFashionSpot. “Its been nearly five weeks that we haven’t left each others side, so, yeah, you would definitely say it is now official.”

As for the L-word (that stands for love, not Louise, for those of you wondering), Lisa neither confirmed nor denied the idea. She uses the OTHER L-word. “Lust”. We don’t blame her. If you don’t have a man, some producers, and a picturesque South African backdrop manipulating the four-letter word out of your mouth, what’s the rush?

Lisa tells us she will be taking her “slow and steady approach” with Tyson after her experience on The Bachelor, even though being with the seasoned traveller bears some similarities to the ordeal. “Tyson loves to surprise me with extravagant dates so sometimes I feel like I’m back on the show,” Lisa laughs. “Lets just say its never boring when Tyson is around.”

We bet. The pair have been paddle boarding, skydiving, jacuzzi-ing, gondola-ing and more, all over our Instagram feeds, making us believe this attractive couple are two very smitten kittens. “Its been a long time but I love the feeling when you wake up and think about that person or you want to call them and tell them about your day,” Lisa tells us.

Despite their crazy-busy lives, they’ve even started jawing future plans. Joy! “We have spoken about taking a few trips together this year,” Lisa said. We really, truly, couldn’t be happier for these two. Looks like you can find love, or lust, rather, on The Bachelor after all.

Just ask Louise Pillidge, who continues to lap up sloppy thirds from Blake Garvey in her role as his very own Betty Crocker. Now all we need is for jilted Sam to find some love, or lust, and everyone’s happy.
