Well, this is a bit of an odd situation. The guy isn't a celebrity. Theoretically no one except his personal friends & family even know who he is, but as of today he's about to be in the public eye.
It has to do with the upcoming Bachelorette season, which isn't public knowledge, especially here.
I'm not sure exactly where the no-no line is drawn at FORT, but this is on the main home page of MSN today. Not some spoiler site or any wild rumors. MSN's homepage!
Anyhow, Mods, please delete if this is overstepping the rules, but it is news. I'm putting it in spoiler tags just in case.

"'Bachelorette' contestant, Eric Hill, dies after paragliding accident.
Eric Hill, a contestant on the upcoming season of "The Bachelorette," passed away Wednesday following a paragliding accident on Sunday.
"Eric shared his final journey with us this morning as all his immediate family were able to be at his side when he passed away," Hill's sister Karen Tracy posted on Facebook. "Thank you to all [for] your love and support and prayers and fasting. It was amazing to be with so many of his friends and family yesterday in the hospital who came to express their love for Eric. He gave us such a gift of a life fully lived and fully shared, and allowed us all to be a part of his last adventure here on earth. It is hard to think of life without his bright spark, but we know he is on to new adventures. We look forward to carrying on his legacy here and greeting him joyfully again someday. I love you so much, little brother!"
United Fire Authority Battalion Chief Brian Anderton told Us Weekly that Hill was injured when his parachute collapsed, sending him crashing into a hillside in Utah. "Due to the slope of the hill, we had a difficult time getting the patient down, so we called in a technical rescue team and some technical medical specialists," Anderton said. Hill was then transported to a local hospital in critical condition where he was placed in a medically induced coma.
Though ABC hasn't announced the contestants vying for alum Andi Dorfman's heart, host Chris Harrison confirmed he was one of the suitors on "The View" Wednesday. "We loved having him around ... our thoughts and prayers are with him," Harrison said."
"Success is getting what you want; Happiness is wanting what you get."
I actually heard this on a talk show today, and he was in critical condition. I see things went south. They showed his pic, so I guess it is not unknown news.

When you throw a rock into a pack of dogs, you know which one you hit by the one that yelps!
Okay - you just hit the line with SPECULATION about how they will edit him out of the show.
While, tragic for his family, please keep your thoughts with them and not wandering into Bachelor editing territory.
