Since the scandal that took over the internet, fans have wanted to know if Ned Fulmer and Ariel Fulmer are still together after the former Try Guys member cheated on his wife with his employee.

Ned and Ariel married in 2012 after two years of dating. They welcomed their first child, Wesley, in 2018, and their second child, Finley, in 2020. In September 2022, rumors swirled that Ned had cheated on Ariel with Alex Herring, a producer for The Try Guys, a video company founded by Ned and three former BuzzFeed employees, Keith Habersberger, Zach Kornfield and Eugene Lee Yang.

The rumors came from a Reddit thread (and Twitter thread) that noted that Ned was missing from The Try Guys’ past three videos and intros, as well as the group’s podcast. Ariel was also missing from her podcast, You Can Sit With Us, which she hosts with the partners of The Try Guys members. Fans also theorized that there was drama between Ned and The Try Guys when Ned and Alex were seen in an Instagram photo with The Try Guys promoting Keith’s “Eat the Menu” series at Caesar’s Palace’s buffet in Las Vegas, however, Ned didn’t make the final cut of the video. The rumors continued when a Reddit user claimed they saw Ned and Alex kissing at a club in New York City and posted alleged messages from Alex’s fiance, Will Thayer, about the affair. “So basically I went out to niagara the club last night and saw her making out with ned from the try guys, i have videos if needed,” the message to Will read. The message continued, “she was wearing a red dress idk if that helps.” The user also claimed they talked to Ariel for an hour about the infidelity.

Fans also noticed that many of The Try Guys employees including Keith, Zach, Eugene and senior editor YB Chang unfollowed Alex and Ned on social media. Will also unfollowed Alex on Instagram and removed all photos of them together, as well as made his account private. Ned later confirmed the cheating rumors were true and he, in fact, cheated on Ariel with Alex.

So…are Ned Fulmer and Ariel Fulmer still together after The Try Guys’ cheating drama? Read on for what we know about if Ned Fulmer and Ariel Fulmer are still together and their relationship now.

Ariel is also the owner of Fig + Stone Designs, a vintage styling firm she founded in 2015. “We love the thrill of the hunt – but not everyone does! Those early mornings and pushy crowds aren’t for the faint of heart,” Fig.+ Stone Designs’ about page reads. “So we’ve made it our business to source the best vintage and handmade pieces from across the globe so that you don’t have to. The result is a curated selection of amazing products. Trust us to do the heavy lifting so that you can have all the great finds without the flea-market fatigue.”

In the about page, Ariel—who describes herself as a “designer, curator and creator with expertise in vintage decor, textiles, furniture and art”—explained that she founded Fig + Stone Designs after she realized that a career in art wasn’t for her. “In 2012, after years of chemistry courses and apprenticeships in art conservation, Ariel realized that sitting behind an easel wasn’t for her. She went on to the corporate world and became a buyer for a large online decor retailer. Fast forward five years and she is designing and making pieces of her own. Ariel uses her training from both the art and business world every day with her hands-on approach to every project,” the about page reads.

Before she founded Fig + Stone Designs, Ariel worked as an Assistant Category Manager in the vintage and market finds department for the retail company One Kings Lane, according to her Linkedin. She worked at the brand from 2013 to 2015. Before that, Ariel worked as a Conservation Assistant at The Newberry and a Registrar at The Conservation Center. She graduated from Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota, in 2009 with a bachelor’s degree in sociology and anthropology. She also studied art, art history and design at the Université Sorbonne Nouvelle in Paris, France, as well as at The American School in London.
