Is this true, or just a weird joke?!

We were all wondering how ABC would handle the untimely death of The Bachelorette contestant Eric Hill and last night it was revealed.
Just before the premiere, host Chris Harrison announced the entire season will be televised in the adventurers' honor.
Ayy! Usually it isn't until a few episodes in that we have to use our tissues.
We may know that The Bachelorette alumnus Eric Hill lost the race for Andi Dorfman's heart after it was revealed he lost his life last month, but he will not be forgotten.
Eric was indeed special.
When he walked out of the limo and up to Andi Dorfman with those Peruvian dolls, we instantly fell in love with his worldly smile!
So, so tragic, but at least his family knows that his memory will touch thousands of lives beyond the globe of people he met on his trips.
If we're heartbroken after only knowing him for an hour, we can't even imagine the pain those who were close to him are feeling.
