Shain Gandee, a 21-year-old former reality television star, known for participating in MTV's Buckwild — the "hick" answer to the (in) famous Jersey Shore — was found dead on Monday, according to Mediaite

According to Gossip Cop, Gandee had been reported missing during the weekend, and was found dead Monday in a vehicle in West Virginia — where the reality show was shot and set. Though no cause of death has been revealed yet, it has been reported that two other bodies were found in the same car.

MTV's Buckwild had been criticized, among others, by West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin, who said the program — set in Charleston — offers a "just wrong" portrayal of young people in his state.
