Bachelorette Alum Dead At 34 As Show's Stars React: 'A Talented Person Who Was Taken From This World Far Too Soon'

A Bachelorette alum has passed away — and Bachelor Nation is reacting with shock and sadness.

Clint Arlis, who competed for Kaitlyn Bristowe‘s heart on the 11th season of the popular reality TV show back in 2015, passed away earlier this week, according to his family. He was just 34 years old.

Clint’s sister Taylor revealed the awful news on Facebook, explaining that Clint died on Tuesday morning. She wrote:

She further said that details of the memorial service would follow soon. She did not give any insight into a possible cause of death.

Arlis had a memorable moment on air while pursuing Kaitlyn’s heart with his funny saying “villains gotta vill” in reference to some of the show’s more nefarious competitive elements. He was eventually eliminated in the third episode of the 2015 series, after a notable friendship was forged with fellow contestant JJ Lane.

Beyond that, co-stars and other Bachelor Nation alums remembered him as a kind, caring person.

Nick Viall, who first met Clint while the pair competed on Kaitlyn’s season, took to Twitter to share his grief on Thursday afternoon, writing:

Kaitlyn was clearly shaken in her tribute to the architectural engineer.

Speaking out in an Instagram Stories video late on Thursday night, the Canadian-born reality TV star shared the news but explained she did not know anything about the circumstances of his death. She alluded to her elimination of the former amateur wrestler, too, saying:

So sad.

It must be an unsettling feeling. Though it’s nothing compared to what Clint’s closest family, friends, and loved ones are going through right now, of course.
