the test boys have officially announced that Ned Fulmer will no longer be a part of the popular YouTube group, following recent cheating allegations that went viral on Reddit and other social media platforms.
The now trio released an official statement on Instagram, stating that Fulmer is no longer working with them due to an “internal review”. They hope that fans will continue to support them due to these changes.
“Ned Fulmer no longer works with The Try Guys. As a result of a thorough internal review, we do not see a way forward together. We appreciate his support as we navigate this change.”
In response, Ned and his wife Ariel posted a statement on social media about the changes. While neither Ned nor Ariel have confirmed whether the cheating allegations were true, they both stated that family was “important” to them. Ned also said that leaving The Try Guys would allow her to focus on her marriage and his children.
Ned apologized to his wife and the boys in the group for “any pain I caused.”
“Family should always have been my priority, but I lost focus and had a consensual working relationship. I am sorry for any pain my actions may have caused the boys and the fans, but especially Ariel. The only thing that matters right now is my marriage and my kids, and that’s where I’m going to focus my attention.”
In Ariel’s statement, she wanted people to respect her privacy as they navigate where to go next and for the sake of their children.
“Thank you to everyone who has reached out to me, it means a lot. Nothing is more important to me and Ned than our family, and we ask you at this time to respect our privacy for the sake of our children.”
A few weeks ago, fans noticed how in recent Try Guys content, Fulmer was edited out of most of the videos and was no longer in the video intros or part of the podcast. This then led to a now-deleted Reddit post alleging that Fulmer was seen cheating with one of his co-workers.
The Try Guys started with Buzzfeed in 2014, before later splitting from the publication due to a variety of reasons. Following Fulmer’s departure, the only people left in the main cast are Keith Habersberge, Zachary Kornfeld, and Eugene Yang.
Since this announcement, The Try Guys have changed the name of their social networks, where they have removed references to Fulmer in the logo.
