'Bachelorette' Andi spoilers: Why does Eric Hill leave the show?

"Bachelorette" contestant Eric Hill does not get a sweet send-off on Episode 4 that airs on June 2, 2014. Hill, who died in a paragliding accident in April, reportedly had an argument with Andi while the group was filming in Connecticut. Reality Steve states that Hill called Andi out for being a fake, she got upset and showed him the cab door.

Although ABC dedicated the season of "The Bachelorette" to Hill, it looks like they aren't going skip over his somewhat dramatic exit from the show. In an effort to bring up the ratings in what has been a lackluster season, fans will reportedly see a little show-down between Andi and Eric.

If Reality Steve's spoilers are correct, Eric confronts Andi at the cocktail party, telling her that she's a fake and not really there for the right reasons. She gets upset because he tells her she's an actress and starts crying. Her tears lead to the biggest disaster of the night: the cocktail party gets cancelled.

No cocktail party? That had to have been a major disappointment for most of the guys. Unless, of course, they also thought Andi was a fake and were excited spend time working on their bromances instead of pretending to fall in love with "The Bachelorette."

Eric Hill's appearance on "The Bachelorette" has been applauded by fans on Twitter this season. There is no doubt he was an early fan favorite and his tragic death made his appearance bittersweet. However, it's not certain how viewers will react when they see his final moments on Monday night's show.

Many fans were probably expecting ABC to show a drama-free exit due to his passing. This is reality TV and everything is done for ratings, so it's not surprising that producers dedicated the season to one of the show's more intelligent cast members only to capitalize on his popularity with fans by showing a somewhat unsettling exit.

However, showing the real reason Hill left the show may be one of the best things that the producers of the show have ever done: letting a really normal guy call out the show's lead for being a fake is perfect. Perhaps he was there for the right reasons and figured out that she wasn't.

Unfortunately, he won't be able to speak to that on the "Men Tell All", but it's good to know that at least one contestant on "The Bachelorette" saw through the smoke and mirrors.
