Allio, a single father whose wife died of breast cancer, competed on Katie Thurston‘s season of “The Bachelorette”. He ended up eliminating himself on the show to be with his young son.
Kloots also suffered a devastating loss, when her late husband, Broadway star Nick Cordero, died from COVID-19 in July 2020. The two shared her now 2-year-old son, Elvis.
