The model, who won the hearts of Bachelor fans in Season 14, has died, RumorFix has confirmed.
Gia Allemand, 29, who had been in a New Orleans hospital since a “serious emergency medical event” on Monday, died Wednesday of an undisclosed illness.
Although Gia wasn’t picked by Jake Pavelka on the reality show, she fell in love with NBA player Ryan Anderson, who was reportedly by her side when she died.
The Bachelor community is reacting quickly. Jake tweeted, “I had to pull over, I can’t stop crying. We have lost an angel.”
Vienna Girardi, who ended up beating Gia out for Jake’s affection, tweeted, “Gia you are my angel! You changed so many lives with your beautiful soul and will be missed and loved forever.”
