In Memoriam: Fallen Stars of 2021

Bachelor Nation has lost one of its own. 

Clint Arlis, who competed for Kaitlyn Bristowe‘s heart on the 11th season of The Bachelorette, has died at age 34, according to his sister Taylor

“It is with great sadness, to tell you that my family has lost my best friend and older brother Clint on the morning of January 11th,” she wrote on Facebook. “Please respect our family’s privacy as we try to cope with this great loss.”

Taylor said details on the service will follow and provided no information on his cause of death. 

While Bachelorette viewers will know Clint for the slogan “villains gotta vill,” his co-stars remember him as a “very kind, unique, and talented person,” Nick Viall wrote on Twitter

“Just heard about the passing of Clint Arlis,” the Bachelor star said. “I got a chance to get know Clint a little after our time on Kaitlyns season and I always enjoy are time and conversations.” He added that Clint “was taken from this world far too soon.”

Meanwhile, his family friends considered him to be a “fierce competitor” and a “devoted friend,” in the words of the wrestling coach at his high school.

Batavia High School coach Scott Bayer confirmed his passing with a tribute on Twitter on Jan. 13. “It is with a heavy heart and a sense of profound loss that we announce the death of one of the Batavia Wrestling Program’s All-Time greats,” he said.

Bayer described him as the “beloved son” of fellow coach Tom Arlis and his wife, Jamie. He said the architectural engineer was a “protective” and “loving” older brother to his sister, Taylor, and the “boyhood idol and best friend of his kid brother,” Logan.

“He was [a] talented artist with a sharp wit, a sardonic sense of humor and palpable authenticity,” he wrote. “The heartfelt speech he dedicated to his dad at his retirement celebration made me proud to know both of them.” 

Clint formed a friendship with contestant JJ Lane before being eliminated in week three of his run of The Bachelorette, which aired in 2015. Kaitlyn went on to accept Shawn Booth‘s proposal but they ultimately split in 2018.

She got engaged to Jason Tartick last May, telling ET at the time, “It was everything I could have asked for… The words that came out of his mouth were insanely beautiful. We’ve never locked eyes like that in our lives. We were holding hands, so intense, and I was listening to his every word, but still blacked out.”

[WATCH] WV TV Reporter Gets Hit By A Car During Live Broadcast, Finishes Report




A West Virginia TV reporter was hit by a car during a live broadcast and got up and finished her report.

Tori Yorgey of WSAZ in Charleston was reporting on a water main break Wednesday when she was sideswiped by an SUV and went flying into the camera.

The diligent TV reporter quickly got up and said, “I just got hit by a car, but I’m OK.”

After composing herself, Yorgey said “It’s all good,” and finished her report.

“Well, that’s a first for you on TV, Tori,” commented the anchor Tim Irr, who was in shock after Yorgey quickly picked up her camera after she was tossed.

“That’s live TV for you. It’s all good,” said the unfazed Yorgey, who was reporting solo at the scene. “I actually got hit by a car in college, too, just like that. I am so glad I’m OK.”

She continued her segment as if nothing happened. Share your thoughts with us on social media.

Charlie Puth Wants Your Body on New Single ‘Light Switch’




Charlie Puth has dropped a new single, “Light Switch.” The upbeat pop song, which sees Puth crooning about his attraction to a love interest, was produced by Puth and co-written with longtime collaborator JKash and Jake Torrey. Listen here.

“You turn me on like a light switch,” Puth sings over a pulsating beat. “When you’re moving your body around and around / I don’t want to fight this.”

Puth documented the making of the song on TikTok for several months ahead of its release.

“On the songwriting level, it was really cool to share this song with the fans while I made it,” the singer noted in a statement, “So they felt like they were involved at the very beginning of the song, like they almost wrote it with me.”

“Light Switch” is the first new song to be released from Puth’s upcoming album, Charlie, out later this year via Atlantic Records. The LP marks the singer’s first full-length release since the Grammy-nominated Voicenotes in 2018.

The 30-year-old said Charlie is his most personal album to date. “I’ve never had a chance to put out music that is truly me and every song on this album is my personality with some melody attached to it,” he confirmed.

Last fall, Puth teamed up with Elton John for “After All,” from John’s album of collaborations, The Lockdown Sessions. John and Puth met at a Los Angeles restaurant in early March 2020 and soon discovered they lived near each other. They began collaborating at the start of the pandemic, and “After All” was the first song either artist completed during lockdown.
