Gia Allemand’s Death: Chris Bukowski, Ben Scott, and More Bachelor Alumni Gather to Mourn

It's a sad time for Bachelor Nation, with the news of Bachelor and Bachelor Pad star Gia Allemand's death. As her close friends from the show share photo memories and tweet messages of grief and prayers, some cast members are also getting together in person to mourn the loss of their friend.

Former Bachelor Nation stars Chris Bukowski, Ben Scott, and more familiar faces met up in Philadelphia, Pa. on August 14, for dinner at Sampan restaurant. Although we'd like to see this group reuniting for happier reasons, we're sure the reality TV group supported each other and honored Gia with stories and memories from happier times.

Gia's rep released an official statement that Gia "passed away peacefully with her mother, boyfriend, and other life-long friends by her side. As a practicing Christian, Gia did receive the sacrament of last rites. Loved ones and fans will remember Gia Allemand as a caring woman who loved her family and was well-known for her compassion towards animals and mission to rescue homeless pets. Funeral arrangements will be forthcoming in another official statement once available. On behalf of the family, we sincerely ask for privacy at this time."

Our thoughts are with Gia's friends and family during this tragic time.
