Double Shot of Love contestant Kandice Hutchison died after production completed

A Double Shot of Love, the third season of MTV’s bisexual dating series, debuts tomorrow night, and it will feature a dedication to cast member Kandice Hutchison, who died after production completed.

In late October, another “vehicle reportedly rear-ended Kandice Hutchison’s car … causing the 22-year-old to be ejected and her car to burst into flames,” Dallas’ Fox affiliate reported at the time. “Hutchison was thrown over the center wall into the eastbound lanes of traffic” and “died at the scene,” according to the report.

In a statement, MTV said, “We were deeply saddened to hear about the loss of Kandice. We plan to air a tribute during the season.” Us Weekly reports that “[t]he Dec. 9 premiere will be dedicated to Hutchison.”

TMZ, which first broke the story, reported that Kandice’s mother “Valerie Campbell told [TMZ] she’s not happy MTV edited out scenes of Kandice’s most outrageous moments — something MTV did out of respect for the family — because she says that’s just how her daughter was, and that’s how she wants to see her.”
