MTV reality show star, 21 has been found dead.
Shain Gandee, known as the sweet, fun loving guy with his group of friends from the MTV reality show Buckwild, was a simple guy, who was a garbage man, loved his small town and did not have facebook or a cell phone.
He was someone who would rather turn a dumptruck into a swimming pool and go “mudding” instead of playing video games.
Gandee has been found dead along with his uncle David, 48 and one other in his Bronco, around 11:30 am Monday morning.
He had left to go off roading with his Uncle in Sissonville, West Virginia.
During the day on Saturday and Easter Sunday, he tweeted a few posts including;
“let’s get drunk” and “Happy Easter” tweet.
No idea if Shain was actually twetting the posts or if someone else ran his account for him.
MTV had been filming with Shain all day Saturday as well for season two of the show.
Shain along with nine other friends, was one of the stars of the controversial reality television show, Buckwild, that premiered this past year.
The show that was said to be a replacement for reality hit, Jersey Shore, followed a group of young adults living life and having fun in small, rural, Sissonville, as they found their own unique ways of having fun.
Gandee reportedly went missing after Midnight on Easter Sunday. He went to a bar with his Uncle and that is the last friends and family heard from him.
The family went searching for them Easter Sunday before they finally called 911.
Co-star Cara Parrish even tweeted’
“It sure is hard to find someone when they take off if they don’t believe in cell phones,“ #I’mGoingToPlantAGPSInShain.”
MTV released a statement saying;
“We are shocked and saddened by the terrible news about Shain Gandee, and those involved in this tragic incident. We are waiting for more information but at this time, our main concern is for the Gandee family and their friends.. Shain had a magnetic personality, with a passion for life that touched everyone he met and we will miss him dearly.”
The show had recently been approved for it’s second season after being so popular.
Shain, who was clearly one of the most popular cast members, was nicknamed, Gandee Candy, for his sweet disposition.
He will be sadly missed by family and friends.
