Ned Fulmer Cheated His Wife And The Try Guys Drama
On 27th September 2022, The Try Guys announced that Ned Fulmer would no longer work with the company, followed by an internal review regarding an extramarital affair with an employee.
This incident came to light when some cheating rumors of Ned were flowing in the media. A video of him was posted on Reddit. In the video, Ned was kissing another woman, a much younger female employee in the same company. The video was found and shared all over the internet but was later deleted.
Ned, on the same day, made this statement: “Family should have always been my priority, but I lost focus and had a consensual workplace relationship.”

“The only thing that matters right now is my marriage and my children, and that’s where I will focus my attention.”

Ned Fulmer Career:
Ned started his career working in a chemistry lab, and after two years of a new research program, he created a biodiesel guard-bed catalyst that generated $3.4M in revenue. Later, he shifted to LA and, in 2013, started as an intern at BuzzFeed. Within a year, Ned rose to the ranks quickly and became a manager. He co-developed the show ‘The Try Guys along with Keith Habersberger, Eugene Lee, and Zach Kornfeld. This team was from completely different backgrounds, with almost no experience standing before the camera. The first video, where “they try out ladies’ underwear,” got a positive response from the audience, and the ‘try guys’ became popular immediately.
According to Ned, their process for choosing a topic for their videos was simple. If they are afraid to do something, that topic might be good to pick up, unless it is harmful or evil. The team has done everything from drag racing to fighting UFC fighters. The group’s biggest USP is about being open about cultures, identities, and bodies, which has helped them to explore several topics in the world the internet provides. Among the episodes they have done, Ned’s favorite is the drag racing video that received massive acclaim from their viewers. He says they weren’t aware of the entire drag culture before, and the experience of making the video opened their eyes to that.
The Try Guys had a successful ‘motherhood’ series, an instant hit on social media. Throughout the 5-part web series, Ned and his friends tried faking pregnancy bellies, changing dirty diapers, going through a labor pain simulator, and caring for robot babies before finally thanking their moms for what they went through. However, the whole experience had put him in dual minds about having a baby: “it also makes me want a baby but not want one at the same time.” Ned’s wife Ariel has been featured in various videos, including one in which they broke up for a week to see how that affected their relationship, in which they were handcuffed for 24 hours, and another. The Try Guys have 7.83 million subscribers and billions of video views.
The group later started a new project called “The Try Kids,” which they hope will entertain both kids and parents. Recently the team is all set to make their television debut with their new cooking show, No Recipe Road Trip, featured on the Food Network; it is expected to be full of travel, cooking, and humor.
Ned is one of the top producers at 2nd Try, LLC.
