Biggest Loser Star Dead at 38

Another reality star has died too young. Damien Gurganious, 38, died Monday of a rare autoimmune disorder, People reports. Gurganious competed on the seventh season of the Biggest Loser in 2009, a couples edition, alongside his wife Nicole. The rare disease came on suddenly, and caused bleeding in his brain. "Damien always desired to bring out the best in those around him by offering encouragement, support, and love, often couched in his own hilarious and sage adages," reads a YouCaring site set up to raise money for his wife and daughter. His death comes after those of a 29-year-old Real World star and a 32-year-old Real World/Road Rules Challenge star. (Read more The Biggest Loser stories.)
