Over the years, several former Bachelor and Bachelorette contestants have tragically died after competing on the show.
Us Weekly confirmed in April 2014 that Eric Hill, who appeared on season 10 of The Bachelorette, passed away at the age of 26 after part of his parachute collapsed while he was paragliding in Utah. The accident happened when Andi Dorfman was still filming the season.
Dorfman learned of his passing on a July 2014 episode. “As tough as it is, I’m glad were all doing this together,” she told then-host Chris Harrison and her final four suitors at the time. “It just puts in perspective all of this — there’s so much more to all of this. There’s life, people have lives here.”
Tyler Gwozdz, who competed on Hannah Brown’s season 15 of The Bachelorette, passed away in January 2020 after being rushed to a Florida hospital for a suspected overdose. “We are heartbroken to hear the tragic news of Tyler’s passing today,” the ABC producers said in a statement at the time.
