A contestant on TLC’s “Next Great Baker,” Sgt. Wesley Durden, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound after production wrapped in October.
The 28-year-old’s death was noted after he was eliminated from Monday’s episode, however, TLC failed to mention that Durden committed suicide.
“In Memoriam, Wesley Durden 1982-2011, TLC extends its deepest condolences to Wesley’s family and friends,” the network’s on-air note read.
“He will be warmly remembered by the cast and crew of ‘Next Great Baker.’”
