The show's producers confirmed the news yesterday (January 23) and issued a statement, which reads: "We are heartbroken to hear the tragic news of Tyler's passing today. Our thoughts are with the Gwozdz family and his friends."
Gwozdz reportedly died on Wednesday (January 22), one week after being rushed to hospital for a suspected overdose.
Gwozdz was an entrepreneur, who was planning to become a psychologist.
He appeared on the popular ABC show last year, vying for the love of bachelorette Hannah Brown.
"My heart goes out to his family in this time," Season 15 winner Jed Wyatt told Us Weekly. "Tyler was nothing but nice to me and a joy to be around."
Luke Stone, another former contestant, shared a tribute via Twitter. See that below.
I lost one of my closest friends today- Tyler I'll miss you every day, miss our hours long conversations about nonsense over the phone, miss how damn funny you were, I had so much happiness and joy for what the future held for us as friends. I love you man, so much— Luke Stone (@LukeStoneDC) January 23, 2020
