Former Bachelor Contestant, Gia Allemand, Dead at Age 29

4 years ago

I'm a Bachelor and Bachelorette fan, but the recent news is way more real than reality TV. Yesterday I learned that Season 14 star Gia Allemand passed away at the young age of 29. According to a statement released on behalf of her family, the cause of death was apparently suicide. Gia had been dating New Orleans Pelicans basketball player Ryan Anderson.

Former Bachelor Sean Lowe tweeted:

My prayers go out to @GiaAllemand 's family during this time. Life on earth is but a vapor and she's with our Lord now.

Another former Bachelor and star of season 14, Jake Pavelka, tweeted:

I had to pull over, I can't stop crying. We have lost an angel.

I am in complete shock and devastated to hear the news about Gia. She was one of the sweetest people I have ever known.

And a very dear friend. My heart goes out to her family during this very difficult time. We have lost angel today.
I miss you Gia...

Her own last tweet just a few days ago spoke volumes of her faith. So sad.
