“I’m absolutely heartbroken about Cristy,” Ashley Spivey, who also appeared on Season 15, told US Weekly. “She was one of the kindest people I met on the first night of the show and she continued to be an amazing friend. She was as smart and funny as she was beautiful. She will be deeply missed in this world.”
