Nance appeared on Emily Maynard's season of the ABC dating series.

A former contestant on The Bachelorette has died after police found him unresponsive at a South Austin, Texas, residence.

An Austin Police Department spokeswoman says officers were sent to the residence at 2:10 a.m. Monday in reference to a reported unresponsive man and found 31-year-old Michael Nance unconscious. He was pronounced dead shortly before 3 a.m.

Spokeswoman Anna Sabana said the Travis County Medical Examiner's Office will have to determine what caused Nance's death, but investigators do not consider the death suspicious.

Nance was a contestant on the eighth season of ABC's The Bachelorette in 2012 but was eliminated in the fourth of the season's 10 weeks.
