A controversial contestant from the 15th season of the Bachelorette died Wednesday at age 29. Sources tell TMZ that Tyler Gwozdz, who competed on Hannah Brown's season, was hospitalized Jan. 13 for a suspected drug overdose. A woman on the call, which TMZ listened to, said Gwozdz was in a locked bathroom and may have taken heroin. His official cause of death won't be confirmed for weeks. During his time on the Bachelorette, Gwozdz went on a one-on-one date with Brown and she gave him a rose, but Fox News reports he "mysteriously" left after the third week. No official word was given as to why, but allegations surfaced that he was an "extreme misogynist." Gwozdz strongly denied those allegations. (Read more The Bachelorette stories.)
