Tyler is a recurring character on Season Two of Scream Queens.

He briefly dated Chanel #5, before being murdered by the Green Meanie in Warts and All.
He is portrayed by Colton Haynes.
Tyler is first seen in the examination room as he tells Dr. Holt his warts first began to appear about two years ago. Chanel interrupts and asks Tyler if he's ever thought about popping his warts. Tyler replies he has tried popping his warts but it causes pain. Tyler explains that he was diagnosed with Neurofibromatosis Type I, and Dr. Holt informs Tyler that there is both good news and bad news regarding his ailment. The good news is there's a machine called the CO2 laser that can shrink and eventually remove his warts and is completely painless. The bad news, however, is that the machine is very expensive and the hospital does not have one. Tyler says he can't afford the treatment and desperately asks to be helped.
Later that day, Tyler approaches a bummed out Chanel #5 and she complains to Tyler about how bad her life has been but then says to him she shouldn't be complaining because his life is so much worse. Tyler says he doesn't mind since it's been so long since a girl has spoken to him. He shows Chanel #5 what he used to look like before his warts began to appear and she tells him he was super hot back then. Tyler expresses his concern over how he's going to find the money for his treatment and Chanel #5 promises to him she'll help him and find the money somehow.
At a diner Tyler tells Chanel #5 he'll help her find proof that she's innocent in Catherine's murder. Two guys then get up and make fun of Tyler's appearance which angers Chanel #5 and she attacks the two, much to Tyler's enjoyment.
After returning to C.U.R.E Institute Hospital Tyler and Chanel #5 kiss only to be interrupted by Chanel and Chanel #3. The two girls reveal they were testing Tyler and since he learned that looks aren't the only thing that matter, they are purchasing the laser for his treatment thanks to the money that Chad had given to Chanel.
Tyler is face-timing Chanel #5 and they thank each other for being able to see the real them in one another. Tyler tells her he found something big in regards to the Green Meanie who attacked her in the previous episode but before he can tell her Tyler is informed by an off-screen person who he thinks is a surgeon that he will be wheeled into surgery. Tyler thinks going into surgery early was a surprise from Chanel #5 and he tells her he will continue to love her even when he returns to his normal self. In the operating room, Tyler is being strapped down and he asks why, and when he looks up he is face to face with the Green Meanie. Tyler begs for his life to which the Green Meanie ignores. The Green Meanie takes the laser that was meant to cure Tyler, and sears his eyes and chest before taking a scalpel and slicing his throat open, ultimately killing him.
After discovering Tyler's dead body in the operating room Chanel, Chanel #3, Chanel #5, and Cathy wheel him down to the swamp and dump his body there. However, before they dump him, Chanel #5 wants to say her goodbyes, and shorty thereafter, Tyler's lifeless body spews out vomit.
Hester decides to call a Green Meanie summit, inviting Ingrid, Cassidy, and Wes to come together to discuss the past and future plans for murder. To get everyone on the same page, Hester plans a game called "Who Killed Who?" and reveals a board filled with pictures of each of the various murder victims. Hester then points to a picture of Tyler, to which Cassidy takes credit for his murder, among others.
When it's revealed to the group that Dr. Cassidy Cascade is one of the Green Meanies by Ingrid Marie Hoffel, and after Cassidy is killed with a machete by Ingrid, Chanel #3 forgives him for murdering people, however, the rest of the group aren't ready to forgive him. Chanel #5 wasn't ready to forgive Cassidy because he "murdered her boyfriend" to which Cathy finds Tyler irrelevant.
