Try Guys’ Ned Fulmer says he cheated on his wife Ariel Fulmer: “I lost focus and had a consensual workplace relationship.”
He finally spoke up. Ned Fulmer, who is best known as one-fourth of the YouTube channel The Try Guys, put out a statement in which he admitted to cheating on his wife and said he was sorry for what he did.
From Bill Clinton to Adam Levine, these are the biggest celebrity cheating scandals of all time.
“Family should have always been my top priority, but I lost focus and had a consensual workplace relationship,” the 35-year-old Internet personality said in a statement that was posted on Twitter on Tuesday, September 27. “I’m sorry if my actions hurt the guys or the fans, but most of all, I’m sorry to my wife, Ariel. Right now, my marriage and my kids are the only things that matter, so that’s where I’ll put my attention.”
Shortly after Fulmer spoke out, his wife, Ariel Fulmer, also spoke out. She thanked Try Guys fans who “reached out to me” during the scandal.
“Ned and I value our family more than anything else, and right now all we ask is that you respect our privacy for the sake of our kids,” the 36-year-old interior designer wrote on Instagram. Wesley is 4 years old, and Finn is 22 months old.

Ned’s statement came just hours after Keith Habersberger, Zach Kornfeld, and Eugene Lee Yang, the other members of The Try Guys, said that they had cut ties with him because of his cheating. “Ned Fulmer is no longer working with The Try Guys,” the group said in a statement posted to Twitter and Instagram on Tuesday. “After a careful internal review, we don’t see a way for us to move forward together.”
The authors of The Hidden Power of F*cking Up kept going: “We appreciate your help as we deal with this change.”
The four people became well-known in the early 2010s when they “tried” different activities or skills on BuzzFeed’s YouTube channel. In 2018, they left the outlet to start their own business and started making videos for their own channel. In December 2020, Ned, Habersberger, 35, Kornfeld, 32, and Yang, 36, put out a documentary called Behind the Try. This month, the first episode of their Food Network show No Recipe Road Trip came out.
Ned has talked a lot over the years about how much he loves his wife, whom he married in 2012. His “Wife Guy” persona has become a running joke in Try Guys videos. In an interview with MTV in August 2019, Yang joked, “Ned is famous for his ass.” He also said that his “Try Pod” co-“butt, host’s wife, child, and house” were the most important things in his life.
Ned and Ariel told the stories of how their sons were born online, and in August 2020, they also started a parenting podcast called “Baby Steps.”
In November 2021, the Yale graduate wrote on Instagram that Ariel was the “love of his life” and that she was the “most fun and energetic mom, the most supportive and caring wife, the funniest and most beautiful person I’ve ever met.”
Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson had the biggest cheating scandals of the decade.
In June, Ned posted two pictures of him and the cohost of the “You Can Sit With Us” podcast holding hands. “Seeing Ariel backstage after opening night was one of my favorite parts of our movie and tour,” the video producer wrote at the time on Instagram. “She has been there for me for years. She has watched a lot of bad improv shows, celebrated every success, and been there for every failure. I’m so glad she loves and supports me.”
