‘Bachelor’ Alum Lex McAllister Dies at 31

Season 14 contestant was hospitalized on Saturday

Former “The Bachelor” contestant Alexa “Lex” McAllister has died at age 31, police told TheWrap.

Columbus, Ohio, police responded to an emergency call at approximately 2 p.m. on Saturday, and the unidentified caller indicated that McAllister may have overdosed on prescription pills after texting about her intention to end her life.

McAllister was transported to a local hospital in stable condition, but died at 2:39 a.m. on Tuesday, police said.

A representative for the Franklin County, Ohio, coroner’s office told TheWrap that the case had been called into the office, but that McAllister’s body had not yet been transported to her office. The coroner’s office had no further information.

McAllister appeared on the 14th season of the ABC reality series, which featured Jake Pavelka.

She was sent home in the first week. Following her run on the reality series, she returned to her native Ohio and worked for a financial planning and wealth management company.

McAllister would make the second contestant on the 14th season of “The Bachelor” to take her own life. In 2013, Gia Allemand died of apparent suicide at age 29.

Allemand died of a “critical loss of brain and organ function” two days after hanging herself with a vacuum cleaner cord from a staircase in her home in New Orleans.
