Buckwild’s Shain Gandee Dead at 21

Shain Gandee, goofball star of MTV's Buckwild, has died, WCHS reports. He was 21. Gandee, his uncle, and a third person were all found dead this morning in a vehicle near Sissonville, West Virginia. Gandee and his uncle were last seen alive around 3 a.m. Sunday, saying they were going four-wheeling, according to reports. On Buckwild, a Jersey Shore–like show set in rural West Virginia, Shain was portrayed as a lovable trash collector deeply proud of his country roots; in February, the show was renewed for a second season.
