Former "Top Chef" competitor Aaron Grissom has passed away following a motorcycle accident in Washington state.
The Pierce County medical examiner said the chef, 34, died of "multiple blunt force injuries."
Aaron gained notoriety after competing on season 12 of "Top Chef," which took place in Boston. He finished 11th out of 16 chefs. Prior to that, he appeared on an episode of "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives" while cooking at a restaurant in Tacoma, Washington.
"Bravo and the 'Top Chef' family are saddened to learn about the passing of Chef Aaron Grissom from Season 12: Boston," a Bravo spokesperson said in a statement. "Our deepest sympathy goes out to his family and friends."
Reports out of Washington claim he recently headed the kitchen at a ramen restaurant in Tacoma but left last summer on good terms.
The News Tribune stated that Aaron also cooked for touring singers, including Billie Eilish.
"He had a lot going on," Aaron's business partner and friend Yu Nanakornphanom told the local newspaper. "I think he had a good future ahead of him. He's always learning to do something. He was driven. He lived his life fully."
