A former contestant on the reality TV show "The Bachelorette" has died of an apparent drug overdose after being found unresponsive in a Florida apartment, police said.

Producers of the Bachelor franchise said in a statement: "We are heartbroken to hear the tragic news of Tyler's passing today". "Our thoughts are with the Gwozdz family and his friends".

Gwozdz competed on Hannah Brown's season of The Bachelorette, and memorably went on the first one-on-one date with Brown and received a rose. She was told to place him on his back.

Meanwhile, Boca Raton PD told ET that they responded to a 911 call for a "medical overdose" involving Gwozdz on January 13.

Gwozdz abruptly left Brown's season of "The Bachelorette", which aired in 2019, after three weeks and without explanation.

Gwozdz's Bachelorette profile said he was working on his doctorate in psychology and had a side business in dream analysis.

Gwozdz was the eldest of five siblings, "a loving son and a friend to many", the producers said.

"Tyler I'll miss you every day, miss our hours long conversations about nonsense over the phone, miss how damn amusing you were, I had so much happiness and joy for what the future held for us as friends", he wrote, adding: "I love you man, so much". "[Tyler] was just really calming and nurturing for me to feel confident going into these one-on-ones, because that's a long time with a person with a very intimate. well.as intimate as you can get".

"We had the chance to relate to each other as well as encourage each other on and off the show", he wrote. Tyler was nothing but nice to me and a joy to be around.
