Bachelor Nation suffered a tragic loss this morning, April 23, as we learned that Bachelorette Season 10 contestant Eric Hill passed away. According to KUTV, Eric’s paragliding accident in Utah on Easter Sunday left him in the hospital unconscious and in critical condition. Since then, however, Eric’s sister announced that he had lost his battle.
We have yet to meet Eric on Andi Dorfman’s upcoming season — in fact, the cast hasn’t even officially been announced yet — but that doesn’t mean we haven’t learned a thing or two about Eric and his zest for life. As for his time on the show, Eric scores the first 1-on-1 date but doesn’t make it all the way to the finish line.
The good thing about being a part of the Bachelor family is that once you’re in, you’re always in. Eric’s co-stars and those from seasons past have been taking to Twitter all morning to share their thoughts about the tragic events. See some of their reactions below:
