Alexa McAllister, a former contestant on the reality television show "The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love," has died. She was 31.
McAllister, who appeared on the program's 14th season when Jake Pavelka was the bachelor, apparently took her own life, according to multiple news reports. McAllister, who died Tuesday, was among 10 contestants who were eliminated after the first week.
Police in Columbus, Ohio, were notified Saturday by a caller who had received a text message from McAllister that indicated she was going to "end her life," the website TMZ reported. After a safety check, McAllister was taken to a hospital after apparently overdosing on prescription pills. Relatives later removed her from life support after her condition worsened.
Born Alexa Constance McAllister June 25, 1984, she was a native of Galloway, Ohio.
Another former contestant from the same season, model Gia Allemand, took her own life as well. Allemand died in 2013 at her home in New Orleans, Louisiana.
