Lex McAllister Suicide: Caused By The Bachelor Itself?!

by at . Comments

Is The Bachelor franchise to blame for Lex McAllister’s death?! That outrageous claim is shamelessly made by the new issue of Life & Style.

Lex McAllister Suicide

News that former contestant Lex McAllister died of suicide on February 16 rocked Bachelor Nation, whose alumni shared their condolences.

If you don’t really remember Lex, she appeared, relatively briefly, on Jake Pavelka's season of The Bachelor, which was a long time ago.

The headline "Another Bachelor Suicide: Contestants Blame The Show For Third Death" would be absurd anyway, but in this case?

Lex reportedly bragged that she only joined the show to get some publicity for her PR Company and was happy to get the boot ASAP.

Claiming she got "dumped" by Pavelka and stretching that into an expose on how being on a reality show drove her to take her life?

Pretty ballsy and over the top to print, isn't it?

Not according to Jesse Csincsak, who WON The Bachelorette Season 4 (starring DeAnna Pappas) and later became friends with Lex.

"It is not about finding love, it is about embarrassing the hell out of each and every contestant for ratings and money," Jesse says.

"You [are known as] ‘the slut,’ ‘the drunk,’ ‘the cheater,’ ‘the bully,’ ‘the loser,’ and you have to live with that for life. That causes depression."

"For anyone who has been on the show, the process causes emotional issues. Lex was no different," Csincsak laments to the tabloid.

"Even though years have gone by, it still negatively affected her life. It ruins people’s lives. I’m afraid this won’t be the last suicide."

By contrast, Lex's brother Josh does not support Jesse’s theory, stating that his family does not fault The Bachelor for the tragedy.
