Tyler Gwozdz's 'Bachelorette' Co-Stars Share Their Thoughts On His Shocking Death

By Clark Sparky

Former "The Bachelorette" contestant Tyler Gwozdz died suddenly on January 22nd after being rushed to the hospital with what is suspected to be a drug overdose. He was just 29 years-old.

Gwozdz was on Season 15 of the show, which aired last year and featured Hannah Brown as the love interest of the contestants. Many of them are now sharing their thoughts on the tragic news, which was made public on Friday.

"I lost one of my closest friends today," Luke Stone, who appeared on Brown's season as well, tweeted. "Tyler I'll miss you every day, miss our hours long conversations about nonsense over the phone, miss how damn funny you were, I had so much happiness and joy for what the future held for us as friends. I love you man, so much."

Jed Wyatt, who won Brown's affection at the end of Gwozdz's season, shared a long message on his Instagram Story.

"You truly never know what anyone is going through these days," Wyatt wrote, according to Entertainment Tonight. "We believe just because people look happy and 'normal' in photos that they may not be fighting something deep and emotional. Social media has made it easy to cast opinions, hate, and judgement onto real people with real problems, just like you. Someone's mental well-being may not be posted for the world to see, and words can make a difference, even potentially save someone struggling.

"So let's stand up and spread love to one another, life is too short," Wyatt added. "RIP Tyler, we love you."

"Can't belevee this, thoughts and prayers go our to the family," Matthew Spraggins wrote on his Instagram Story. "Was a pleasure getting to know this guy [heart] RIP Ty."

"Such sad news," Garrett Powell wrote on social media. "Prayers for his family and friends. He was a good friend and showed me and the other dudes nothing but respect. RIP Tyler."

PopCulture.com has more details on the circumstance surrounding his death:

Gwozdz died on Jan. 22, a week after emergency responders were called to a possible "medical overdose" involving the former reality contestant. In a 911 call, a woman told dispatchers Gwozdz overdosed on heroin, and she tried to knock down a bathroom door to save him. The person tried to find Narcan, a drug used to reverse an opioid overdose. Gwozdz was rushed to a nearby hospital, where he stayed for a week until his death.

The official cause of death has not been determined. The Palm Beach Medical Examiner's Office said the autopsy could take eight to 12 weeks to finish.
