Big Brother’s Angela Rummans is missing her man. The BB20 alum is at home in South Carolina while Tyler Crispen, her longtime love whom she met on the reality show two years ago, has returned to the CBS summertime house for this year’s all-star season.
In a new post to her Instagram page, the female half of “Tangela” shared a photo of Tyler posing in the water. The fan-favorite and winner of the 2018 America’s Favorite Houseguest prize had wet hair and was all smiles as he peeked through his shades in the photo.
In the caption to the pic, Angela wrote that she misses Tyler’s face more than she can “possibly describe.” She also included hashtags to declare that he’s “got this.” Two years ago, he was the runner-up to winner Kaycee Clark.
In comments to the post, fans offered Angela words of support.
“Distance makes the heart grow fonder!” one follower wrote, to which Angela replied, “I don’t think it’s possible, my heart will explode.”
Others couldn’t believe that Angela wasn’t a surprise all-star as well.
“I couldn’t believe my eyes when Tyler walked onto the stage!! I thought for sure you would follow!” one fan wrote to Angela. “I was thinking no way you 2 could handle being apart!! When the last person was called my heart sank…YOU hang in there & he’ll be home with the WIN before you know it!”
And another commenter noted that hopefully Tyler will be gone long enough to win.
“I hope you DON’T see him for 3 months,” the fan told Angela.
Though Big Brother: All-Stars just kicked off on Wednesday night with a live move-in premiere, all 16 players were required to quarantine in separate houses for more than two weeks prior due to strict coronavirus protocols that were put in place. That means the lovebirds will be separated a little longer than usual for this season, should Tyler make it all the way to the finale.
Of course, his reason for competing in the All-Stars game is totally Tangela-related. On his bio for CBS.com, Tyler revealed that he wants to win so he can help Angela open a plant-based restaurant.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, seen on YouTube here, Tyler admitted it was a “rollercoaster” decision to leave Angela for the summer, but that she will be his “motivation” to give his all.
Tyler and Angela aren’t the only Big Brother couple that will be separated by this summer’s game. All-Star player Daniele Donato married Dominic Briones from her season, and Nicole Franzel is engaged to Victor Arroyo from BB18. Additionally, Bayleigh Dayton’s love, Swaggy C Williams, will be cheering her on from home two years after proposing to her on the live BB20 finale.
