I’m sorry for any pain that my actions may have caused to the guys and the fans but most of all to Ariel, The only things that matters right now is my marriage and my children, and that's where I am going to focus my attention.”

Try Guys Response

We thank you for your support as we navigate this change.” Changing their profile pictures on their socials to orange instead of the classic 4 colors of green, blue, purple and pink.

Simply titling it “what happened.” The trio says they reached out to Ned and the producer after they were seen in public for their affairs. Explaining that they had no idea this was going behind the scenes, being shocked as everyone else when they learned the news. They go in to explain the legal actions that had to take place as Ned was one of the bosses and Alex was an employee. Eugene made it clear that they did not want to be branded or associated with the manner, not sweeping this incident under the rug. They admit to Ned being edited out of recent videos and merchandise, having to scrap videos that they were not able to save and how they still have to post videos due to sponsorship. Even with the obstacle that has come to the try guys, they are very grateful for the support of fans of the change, looking forward to introducing their audience to the new era of the TRY GUYS.
