Clint Arlis was most recognizable for appearing on season 11 of ABC’s The Bachelorette back in 2015, featuring Kaitlyn Bristowe.

His death was reported on Twitter by Scott Bayer, who was a friend of the family and worked closely with Arlis when he was on the wrestling team at Batavia High School.

Bayer began his announcement, writing: “It is with a heavy heart and a sense of profound loss that we announce the death of one of the Batavia Wrestling Program’s All-Time greats, 2005 graduate, Clint Arlis.

“Clint was the beloved son of Coach Tom Arlis and his wife, Jamie, protective, loving older brother of his sister, Taylor, and the boyhood idol and best friend of his kid brother, Coach Logan Arlis.”

He continued: “On behalf of all of us in the Batavia Wrestling Family, we send our deepest and most sincere condolences to the Arlis Family during this period unimaginable heartbreak and grief.”

He added: “While pursuing his career in architecture, he’s always made a priority of coming back to our (his) wrestling room and generously giving back to our kids. He was a talented artist with a sharp wit, a sardonic sense of humor, and palpable authenticity.”

Arlis’ sister, Taylor, also shared the heartbreaking news on Facebook…

Her statement read: “It is with great sadness [that I] tell you that my family has lost my best friend and older brother Clint on the morning of 11 January. Please respect our family’s privacy as we try to cope with this great loss.”

Nick Viall, who was a contestant on The Bachelorette at the same time as Arlis, described him as “a very kind, unique, and talented person who was taken from this world far too soon.”

His cause of death still hasn’t been announced.

Rest in peace.
