The Try Guys have opened up about the future of the group and whether or not they will find a replacement for Ned Fulmer.
Last month (Sep 27), news broke out that the Try Guys star Ned Fulmer had had a workplace affair. Shortly afterwards, Keith Habersberger, Zach Kornfeld and Eugene Lee Yang announced that they'd fired Ned. They said: "As a result of a thorough internal review, we do not see a path forward together. We thank you for your support as we navigate this change."
Now, The Try Guys have discussed what's next for the group and revealed that they will be inviting people into the fold.
Will the Try Guys replace Ned Fulmer?
Talking on an episode of TryPods last week (Oct 6), Zach said: "The future's going to be exciting. As we've said, it's going to be hard." He then added that the Try Guys will be using this moment to expand their content: "For better or for worse, we're here now and what I see in that is an opportunity to have the Try Guys be more fluid and grow with us as we grow."
Zach continued: "That's another rapid question, are we going to have a new fourth Try Guy? No. We will have new people that come in and out. We obviously already have our buddy Kwesi who we love but I don’t want to put the pressure on anyone to say, ‘This is the new Try Guy and he is the replacement.’ That’s not fair to them."
Fast forward to to 57:50 to hear Zach and Keith's comments.
Expanding on Zach's remarks, Keith said: "We want to get more people in. I think what is great about the Try Guys, and how we grew is that we were people who were seen as sort of normal average guys who were able to do exceptional things, but now we're actually not normal average guys because we have had hundreds of exceptional experiences."
Keith then explained: "So it's hard for us to have that full new experience in every single video. It's a good opportunity to let other people, to let women, to let non-binary people, to let people from different backgrounds, ages and body types have these sorts of experiences, so we can actually as viewers gain a different perspective."
Zach ended by saying: "It's gonna enrich our content... That is the future. It is a story yet to be told."
