While reality TV keeps viewers entertained with often over-the-top and outrageous antics. But sometimes tragedy strikes and what was once entertainment turns serious.

Steve Irwin: "Crocodile Hunter"

Although Irwin’s nickname precedes him as the beloved personality who wrestled giant reptiles, his most important accomplishment is arguably instilling his spirited knowledge of wildlife to TV audiences across the globe.

The whole world let out a somber cry in September 2006 when he was fatally impaled in the heart by a stingray’s barb during the filming of an underwater documentary called “Ocean’s Deadliest.” He was 40-years-old.

The documentary was finally broadcast in January 2007 and dedicated to the memory of Irwin but made no mention of his death. The Australian conservationist is survived by his wife, who maintains his legacy alive owning and operating the Australia Zoo, and their two children.

Ryan Jenkins: "Megan Wants a Millionaire"

The 2009 reality dating show following Megan Hauserman's search of a wealthy bachelor had only aired three episodes when it was suddenly canceled by VH1. The network axed the show because 32-year-old contestant Ryan Jenkins was sought in connection with the murder of 28-year-old swimsuit model Jasmine Fiore, whom he had married just days after wrapping up with the show.

The cancellation was just a precaution at the time because it was inconclusive whether Jenkins was directly involved in the murder. When police contacted Jenkins for questioning, he was on his way to his native Canada to deal with “immigration issues." By the time they found him in a remote hotel in British Columbia, he was hanging from a coat rack by a belt.

Although suicide isn’t a confession, Jenkins’ activities around Fiore’s death fill in the blanks sufficiently — surveillance cameras show he left their Vegas hotel with Fiore the night she died but returned alone, he moved thousands of dollars of his belongings out of his penthouse and into a storage unit and he made a phone call while on the road to his attorney who tried to get him to turn himself in.

In his house, police found dozens of unopened letters from Jenkins to Fiore, which showed jealousy and possessiveness.

Overall, it might have been less of an issue if Jenkins was eliminated in the early stages of “Millionaire," but the scary part was that he was a finalist.

Gia Allemand: "The Bachelor"

Gia Allemand was a regular on “The Bachelor” franchise in 2010, placing third on that year’s season and competing in the debut season of the spinoff game show, “Bachelor Pad.”

Fans were saddened when the star was found dead of suicide in her New Orleans home in 2014. Some of her close friends said at the time that she was a troubled beauty wrestling with insecurities.

“I could tell there was some insecurity going. I don’t know what she needed out of life. It’s sad,” said Reid Rosenthal, a contestant on Season 6 of “The Bachelor.” Others said she had a magnetic personality.
