Michael Nance Remembered As A 'Sensitive Guy' Who 'Felt Things Very Deeply' As His Official Cause Of Death Remains Unknown

Michael Nance

Everyone who knew Michael Nance has nothing but amazing things to say about the former Bachelorette contestant.

As we reported, the 31-year-old from Emily Maynard's season of the ABC show was found unresponsive early Monday morning in Texas. Austin PD reported no signs of trauma or foul play, but will not release the official cause of death until tests are complete.

What we do know is that the musician had a huge heart, but struggled with a very serious addiction to painkillers.

When he was introduced on the show back in 2012, the "rehab counselor" revealed he had been sober for two years:

"I was addicted to prescription pain medicine. It all starts out fun and then somewhere along the road, it just turned into something else. It's a vicious cycle and it ate away at me for a long time. I'm almost two years sober, now, and it's not that easy — you have to completely change your way of living."

When he was eliminated after week four of the show, Michael returned to Austin where he continued pursuing music, and worked multiple jobs as a physician recruiter, CrossFit coach, and a car salesman.

A Bachelorette source tells People of Nance:

"He was the type of guy who felt things very deeply. Such a sensitive guy. You've got to remember that I met him when he was in his mid 20s, so he was pretty directionless. I don't know that being on TV gave him any further direction. But he had such a good aura."

Former contestants seem to have varying information about Michael's death, with one rumor being that he died of an overdose at a sober living home.

An autopsy was performed on Tuesday, so we should have more answers in a matter of weeks. We'll keep you posted.

In the meantime, our thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected by Michael's passing.
