With the premiere of The Bachelorette just days away, Andi Dorfman spoke to PEOPLE about the tragic death of contestant Eric Hill, who was killed in a paragliding accident April 23, after he had left the show.
"When I heard the news, I was devastated," says Dorfman, who also reached out privately to Hill's family. "Shock, devastation, grief. It's something you never could have predicted [or] expected."
Hill, who will not be edited out of episodes, "was part of our family," Dorfman says. "And I had just seen him. He was a member of our cast and we had an inherent bond. The [other contestants] shared that bond too. It was shocking and devastating to all of us and it's still a tough thing that we're going through."

Even though she had agreed to tie the knot three times before, Emily Maynard tells PEOPLE her fourth engagement to automotive management consultant Tyler Johnson "is my last. I really mean it. I'm actually making it to the marriage part this time!"
Once unsure about what her future would hold, the former Bachelorette star says that sharing her life with Johnson "is everything I've been praying for for years."
The two recently bought a home in Charlotte, North Carolina, and have begun furniture shopping in anticipation of moving in over the summer.

"It is hard to think of life without his bright spark, but we know he is on to new adventures. We look forward to carrying on his legacy here and greeting him joyfully again someday. I love you so much, little brother!"
