'Bachelorette' contestant Julien Hug committed suicide, says family

Julien Hug, the Bachelorette contestant found dead earlier this week, committed suicide, according to his family. People received the following statement from Hug’s family: “In his letter to us, he stated that he was suffering from acute depression and he felt it was his one way out … While publicly outgoing, he was an extremely private person who internalized everything.” The 35-year-old reality show contestant, who was discovered in a remote section of the San Bernardino National Forest in Southern California, competed on season 5 of The Bachelorette, which starred Jillian Harris. (Harris tweeted about Hug’s death the day he was found.) “What we see now is the immense amount of love that everyone has for him,” his parents said in the statement. “This is an honored tribute to what an amazing person he was, and we thank everyone for their love, prayers, and continued support.”

    That’s actually a rather classy way to deal with a public suicide of a reality star. I feel bad for his parents and family. Such a waste. I hope my kid feel she can turn to me before she gets desperate and we can get her help together.

    I only saw the season peerimre of the Bachelorette and found it funny that she sacrificed her dream job to be on the show. Turns out that dream job was being an account executive at Facebook (!).BTW, this is a highly entertaining blog, one that will probably remain a cult classic in the veins of Arrested Development once you do get a job and it no longer becomes a jobless existence.
