Harris went on to describe Hug’s death as “so so sad” and remembered him fondly.

“I will always remember Julien’s gentle demeanor and kind heart, which will be sadly missed,” she said.

Hug was found in a remote area off a highway near Pinyon Pines “you would need to hike to,” the Riverside County Sheriff’s Deputy Melissa Nieburger said.

The 35-year-old was one of 30 contestants on Harris’ season of The Bachelorette in 2009 where he participated in the first couple episodes before being cut.
