It has always seemed like many of the cast members are very close, and this news seems to have affected many of them. While it is still unclear what exactly happened, these Bachelor alums have shown concern, confusion, and shock, just like most of us watching from home. (And in true Bachelor fashion, a couple of these contestants should probably have kept their mouths shut.)

Caila Quinn

Chad Johnson

Tanner Tolbert

Tolbert was sad that the contestants didn't get to enjoy the experience.

Marcus Grodd

Raven Gates

Raven kept it short.

Robby Hayes

This one seems a little unnecessary.

Clare Crawley

As someone who's been on the show before, Clare hopes everything is OK.

Let's hope that that everyone from the current cast is home, safe, and well.
