McAllister's time on The Bachelor was short -- she was eliminated during the first week of season 14. What was reported about Lex's death is that she texted a friend about ending her life. It seems the friend acted fast, but when he or she went to Lex's home, Lex was reportedly found unresponsive. She was rushed to the hospital and put on life support, but passed away a few days later. It was said that Lex overdosed on prescription pills and that she had depression and biploar disorder. Born Alexa, she went by Lex. She was 31-years-old and lived in Columbus, Ohio.
