Sad news from the reality world.
Sergeant Wesley Durden, 28, a contestant on TLC’s baking competition “Next Great Baker,” committed suicide after production wrapped in October, according to the Jacksonville Daily News. However, TLC did not mention Durden’s death until after his elimination from “Next Great Baker” on Monday night’s episode.
The network delivered the news in a memorial note after the episode. TLC then released this statement: “TLC extends its deepest condolences to the family, friends, and colleagues of Sgt. Wesley Durden, who died Oct. 24. He will be warmly remembered by the cast and crew of Next Great Baker.”
Durden was a Iraq War veteran who had been deployed to Iraq twice. According to the Jacksonville Daily News, Durden was a cook with the 82nd Airborne. He is survived by his wife, his seven-year-old son and his two-year-old daughter.
We’re not gonna lie. It’s pretty beat up that TLC didn’t bother to mention the man committing suicide until AFTER he was eliminated from their show. They didn’t even acknowledge it any time before. That’s low down.
