Eric Hill was sent home by Andi Dorfman and then passed away in a paragliding accident. On Tuesday, E! Online shared how Andi and the guys reacted to the news. They let them know about it all while they were still filming the show and it happened.

They actually showed the camera being left alone and the people behind the cameras helping to console the four final guys and Andi. Chris Harrison sat them down and explained to them about the loss of Eric Hill. Andi was devastated that during their last conversation she sent him home and things didn't go well.

Fans had mixed feelings about the way that they showed it all go down and went to social networks to talk about it all. This is reality TV and what Andi and the guys were going through was real life. Some people were glad that they shared it all but others thought it was in poor taste. ABC did talk to Eric Hill's family before putting this all on the air for the world to see.

Andi went to Twitter last night to talk about it. She said, "Tough to watch this part. Heavy hearts as we remember Eric but smiles as his legacy lives on. #LiveLikeEric #TheBachelorette." Several people from the cast of the show have been tweeting with this hashtag for Eric since he passed away. He was someone who loved to live life and died having a great time with a new adventure.
