Less than a year ago we spoke with memorable gay reality show villain Colton Cumbie and his fiance Caleb Bankston. The pair were competing on Survivor: Blood vs. Water.  A the time we couldn’t help noticing that calm and sweet-natured Caleb was a tempering influence on his partner.

Sadly, People and other outlets are reporting that Caleb died in a train derailment yesterday. He worked at the Alabama Warrior Railway in Birmingham and he was just 26 years old.

Our sincere condolences to Cumbie and the rest of Bankston’s family.
