Andi Dorfman Honors Eric Hill on Instagram, Tells Bachelorette Fans to #LiveLikeEric!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Eric Hill tragically passed away following a fatal paragliding accident, but he remains on The Bachelorette, with the 10th season dedicated to him.

With good reason. The May 26 episode featured him taking Andi Dorfman on her first one-on-one date of the season, and charming her all the way.

This wasn't your typical date filled with sightseeing and small talk, either. His passion and character shone brightly as he recounted his global travels.

Hearing about Eric Hill's near-death experience in Syria, knowing his actual death would come just weeks later, was no doubt jarring for viewers.

Just the same, the producers left the footage in unedited as it shows how special he was. In truth, he seems like one of the show's best contestants ever.

By this point, you don't need The Bachelorette spoilers to tell you he does not win the show, but it was clear that Andi was mesmerized by Eric.

She took to the Internet Monday night to let her followers know.

“A date to remember with a guy I won’t forget! Love this pic,” Andi Dorfman posted on Instagram, along with a photo of Eric doing a flip on the beach.

“Next time you’re on a beach try a backflip (why not)!” the woman of the hour continued, including the hashtags #LiveLikeEric and #thebachelorette.

Living like an adventurous, no-regrets, consummate gentleman?

Not all of us will make it our life's mission to visit every country in the world, but it's hard not to be inspired by the guy and his approach to life.

We could all learn a little something from him, don't you think?

Eric Hill is the The Bachelorette contestant who passed away after the season, which has been dedicated to his memory.
