Remembered for her long, brown locks, carefree personality and fit physique, the third finalist in Jake Pavelka’s season died of an apparent suicide on Wednesday after being hospitalized in critical condition on Monday night, following a “serious emergency medical event,” ABC said.
While Allemand’s death is a tragedy, her life can be remembered in notable TV clips during her time in the reality TV spotlight. Here are five of the New Yorker’s most memorable on-camera moments:

“I was hysterical in my hotel room,” she said. “I was like, ‘Oh, my god, this really hurt.’ ”

“If I were to be tempted in the house, Wes would be the guy that would do it,” Allemand, who was in a relationship at the time, admitted to cameras. “If I didn’t have a boyfriend, I would love to be serenaded and everything by Wes.”
Hayden then performed a country tune, “Love Don’t Come Easy,” for the lucky lady, and she became very emotional. “It just gets me,” she said.

Following cheers from the audience asking Hayden to kiss her, he obliged, and the two shared a passionate lip-lock onstage.
