What Happened to Tyler in The Menu?

March 31, 2024


In 2022’s The Menu, Nicholas Hoult and Anya Taylor-Joy star as Margot and Tyler, two wealthy diners who get trapped on an exclusive island restaurant by Chef Slowik (Ralph Fiennes). It doesn’t take long for Slowik to make it clear that none of the guests are going to leave alive. Then, at the end of the Mark Myloyd-directed film, Slowik whispers something to Tyler that utterly devastates him. However, what Slowik actually says is never revealed.

After being forced to whip up a dish, Tyler delivers what Slowik calls “Tyler’s Bullshit.” The meal includes undercooked lamb and an inedible leek butter sauce that he simply spits out. It’s not just a failure on the plate, but a humiliating act in front of the other diners. Slowik even adds that he thinks Tyler is a food snob who doesn’t understand his craft.

Luckily for Tyler, Slowik isn’t finished with him yet. He also adds a dessert of human flesh for the diners to enjoy, which makes it pretty clear that the chef has no intention on leaving this restaurant alive. After watching the movie, many viewers have been wondering what happened to Tyler. Fortunately, we have an answer for you! In a recent interview, Hoult addressed the question of what happens to Tyler in the end. But before we dig into his explanation, let’s talk about why he did what he did in the first place.
