Bachelor Producers Say They Are 'Heartbroken' over Tyler Gwozdz's 'Tragic' Death

Exclusive

'Tyler I'll miss you every day, miss our hours long conversations about nonsense over the phone, miss how damn amusing you were, I had so much happiness and joy for what the future held for us as friends.

At the time, Tyler's stint on The Bachelorette seemed to end prematurely due to an anonymous Reddit thread posted in March 2019 that accused the suitor of spitting on an ex-girlfriend and being an "extreme misogynist". "I love you man, so much". TMZ also noted multiple attempts to contact his family in the publication's previous story about Gwozdz's suspected overdose.

Online records list his date of death as January 22.

The Bachelorette alum Tyler Gwozdz has died at age 29 following an apparent drug overdose.

TMZ reports Gwozdz, 29, was admitted to the intensive care unit in critical but stable condition where he remained for a week. During the call, the woman was frantic as she reported her concern that he may have been on heroin and she was trying to find Narcan, which is a nasal spray that can reverse an opioid overdose.

Gwozdz appeared on two episodes of The Bachelorette past year.


Tyler's family has yet to provide a comment on the incident and Tyler's tragic death. A week later, during the third episode, Brown announced to the group that Gwozdz "had to leave".

Gwozdz later emailed a statement to Refinery29 that simply read, "This was a decision that I came to with producers, and something that I've come to realize what is the best decision that could've been made".

Grant Eckel told U.S. that Gwozdz 'showed everyone in the house nothing but respect, ' adding, 'Tyler was a good friend to all of us.

Producers for the show confirmed the news on Thursday reports CNN.

Luke Stone said on Twitter that he "lost one of [his] closest friends" with Gwozdz's untimely passing.
