'The Bachelor: Countdown to Juan Pablo' Presents Tribute To Former Cast-Member Gia Allemand

While "The Bachelor" is preparing for its new season with Juan Pablo, the reality staple took a moment to remember one of its own. "The Bachelor: Countdown to Juan Pablo" special paid tribute to former contestant Gia Allemand, who took her own life in August 2013. It included interviews with cast members and Gia's mother, who said, "I just miss her. Gia was always full of such life and she’d walk into a room and you could feel her presence."

In a poignant interview with Gia herself, the young beauty said, "I just hope people remember me for my kind heart, you know? That’s important. I have a big heart for people, so ... that’s what I’d like to be remembered for."

Buddy TV's Bill King thought it a touching tribute, writing, "She was a beautiful and loving girl who seemingly had it all. It's a stark reminder of the dangers of depression and a push to seek help for anyone reeling from its effects. Rest in peace, sweet girl.”

"The Bachelor" kicks off its new season tonight at 8 p.m. EST on ABC. Fans can also look forward to several new "Bachelor" specials each Sunday at 8 p.m. EST this month.
