A Gia Allemand tribute aired on the Jan. 5 "Bachelor" preview on ABC. According to ABC News, the preview ended with a special tribute to Allemand, who committed suicide in August of 2013. The emotional footage was edited to show some of Gia's most memorable moments on "The Bachelor" and "Bachelor Pad" and was very tastefully done.

Several Allemand pals spoke about Gia and how wonderful of a person she really was. It's clear that Gia made many friends and people simply loved her. She truly did have a big heart -- but she was going through something that many people can't even begin to imagine.

The Gia Allemand tribute showed memories with "Bachelor" Jake Pavelka who was beyond devastated to learn of Gia's tragic passing. Although Pavelka didn't choose Gia in the end, he has said he loved her on numerous occasions -- and looking back on their time together, you can see that they did have something special. Gia's mother, Donna Micheletti, was featured on the tribute as well:

"Gia took her own life and it is heart wrenching and I wouldn’t want to see any other parent go through this. There is plenty of help for everyone. I just miss her. Gia was always full of such life and she’d walk into a room and you’d feel her presence. She’d light up that room like sunshine," said Micheletti.
