UPDATE: Greg Plitt’s death was officially ruled an accident due to blunt force trauma, the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner confirmed to EW.
ORIGINAL STORY (Jan. 18, 2015): Greg Plitt, a fitness model who starred on Bravo’s Work Out, was killed by a train in Burbank, Calif., Saturday afternoon in what Burbank Police Department’s Sgt. Scott Meadows says “appears to be an accident.” He was 37.
Plitt appeared on soap opera Days of Our Lives from 2007 until 2008, when he switched over to reality TV to begin his run on fitness-focused Bravo series Work Out. Bravo’s Andy Cohen tweeted Sunday morning, “We couldn’t take our eyes off Greg Plitt after we cast him on ‘Work Out’-was as nice as he was beautiful.”
Plitt also starred in another Bravo series titled Friends to Lovers that debuted Jan. 12.
“This is a terrible tragedy,” Bravo said in a statement. “Our thoughts and deepest sympathy are with Greg’s family and friends at this extremely difficult time.”
