Eric Hill's tragic death after being eliminated from The Bachelorette this season put the show in a difficult position of deciding how much attention to give it.
Do you think they went too far, or handled it just right?
Hill died following a paragliding accident about three months ago, while the ABC reality show was still filming; it didn’t change the show’s outcome.
Andi Dorfman had already sent Eric home, but the news of his passing was bound to be jarring to her, and the guys who had been hiscompanions.
The producers of The Bachelorette dedicated the season to him and put out a statement mourning his loss, both classy and appropriate gestures.
Also, to conclude the episode in which he was sent home, Dorfman and Chris Harrison reflected on Eric rather than airing the usual rose ceremony.
Some felt these things were outweighed, though, by the fact that this week, ABC also televised the moment that they told Andi about Eric Hill's death.
