Gia Allemand didn't win the heart of Jake Pavelka when she competed on Season 14 of "The Bachelor," but the New York-born swimsuit model nabbed fans who later tuned in to see her on the spin-off "Bachelor Pad." Only 29, the brunette beauty died on August 14 at a New Orleans hospital after a suicide attempt. Two days earlier, her boyfriend, NBA basketball player Ryan Anderson of the New Orleans Pelicans, found her unconscious and she was rushed to the hospital. While initially on life support, the decision was made to withdraw it when it was determined she had suffered a critical loss of brain and organ function. She died peacefully with her mother, Anderson, and other friends by her side.
