Gone too soon. Lex McAllister, the Bachelor contestant who died on Tuesday, February 16, after an apparent suicide, is being remembered by members of Bachelor Nation.
Season 4 Bachelorette winner Jesse Csincsak shared pics of McAllister on Facebook hours after her death, writing, "It saddens me deeply to hear the news of my #friend Lex McAllister Taking her own life !! You were a beautiful person inside and out !!! You will be missed !! Until we meet again dear R.I.P gone but never forgotten !!!"
As Us Weekly previously reported, police in Columbus, Ohio, went to McAllister's home on Saturday at about 2 p.m. after receiving a call that she had overdosed on prescription drugs.
McAllister, who competed on Jake Pavelka's season of The Bachelor in 2010, was taken to the hospital and was said to be in a stable condition before her body began shutting down. She died after her family made the decision to withdraw life support. A family member told TMZ that McAllister had struggled with depression and bipolar disorder.
Gia Allemand, who was a contestant alongside McAllister on season 14 of The Bachelor, is featured in one of the photos that Csincsak, 33, posted. Allemand, 29, died in 2013 after she hanged herself in her New Orleans home.
Tenley Molzahn, runner-up on season 14 of The Bachelor, also tweeted about McAllister on Tuesday. "Remembering Lex," she wrote. "She was vibrant! I didn't know her well, but she was beautiful. Prayers to her family."

Molzahn, 31, also posted an inspiring quote on Facebook that said, "Scream 'I am worthy' until the stars collapse upon your brilliance."
"Hey you! You who are hurting... You who feel crushed by life... You who doesn't feel worth it today. I have something to tell you, you are SO WORTH IT! Please believe it," she captioned the pic. "I might not know you, but I know God created your life & your soul for a purpose. Scream it out, you are worth it! // So sad to have learned about another life lost today. Remembering her vibrance & beauty. // If you're struggling in believing your purpose & worth, please talk to someone. We need you here. 1.800.272.TALK."
Molzahn shared the number for To Write Love on Her Arms, a nonprofit organization based in Florida for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury and thoughts of suicide.
Season 19 Bachelor Chris Soules also expressed his condolences, tweeting, "So sad to hear about Lex McAllister, a bachelor family member gone too soon. Sending my thoughts and prayers to her family and friends."
