Gia Allemand, who appeared on "The Bachelor" and its spinoff show "Bachelor Pad," died Wednesday following an apparent suicide attempt.
"Due to a critical loss of brain and organ function, life support was withdrawn today," the reality star's publicist, Penelope Jean, said in a statement.
The 29-year-old model was found in her New Orleans home Monday evening by her boyfriend, NBA player Ryan Anderson. The New Orleans Pelicans forward contacted 911, but once Allemand arrived at the hospital, she remained "unconscious in critical condition and on life support," according to Jean.
Allemand was known to "Bachelor" fans as the bubbly Maxim model who vied for Jake Pavelka's heart on the ABC program in 2010. When she did not end up with Pavelka, she decided to take part in "Bachelor Pad," on which former "Bachelor" and "Bachelorette" contestants compete for $250,000.
