Former Bachelor (US) contestant dies

2013-08-15_1047Gia Allemand, who appeared on the US series of The Bachelor, has died following an apparent suicide attempt.

The 29-year-old model who appeared in the 2010 series was found in her New Orleans home on Monday evening by her boyfriend, NBA player Ryan Anderson. Anderson contacted 911, but once Allemand arrived at the hospital, she remained unconscious in critical condition and on life support.

“Due to a critical loss of brain and organ function, life support was withdrawn today,” the reality star’s publicist, Penelope Jean, said in a statement.

Allemand was finished third in the series and appeared in the spin-off show Bachelor Pad.

She had been active on social media in the days leading up to her death, last tweeting a Bible verse on Sunday.

“It’s with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to our good friend Gia Allemand,” Bachelor host Chris Harrison said. “She will be loved and missed by all who knew her.”
