Josh Seiter Reappears on Social Media, One Day After He Was Reported to Have “Died”; Claims to Have Been “Hacked”

“Thanks for all the posts guys, but I’m still here!”

One-time Bachelorette contestant (and infamous reality TV clout-chaser) Josh Seiter is not dead, despite a statement posted to his Instagram on Monday stating otherwise.

Josh— who has become notorious for trying to date any newly single reality star he can find including 1000-lb. Sisters star Tammy Slaton and 90 Day Fiance star Karine Staehle)— posted a video of himself to his Instagram account on Tuesday stating that he is “alive and well” and was the victim of a mysterious “hacker.”

A large amount media outlets circulated the story that Josh had unexpectedly died after a statement appeared on his Instagram claiming that he was dead, supposedly written by his family.

“It is with an extremely heavy heart that we share the tragic news of Joshua’s unexpected passing,” the statement read. “As all who knew him can attest, Joshua was an incredibly bright light in an increasingly dim world. His fearless voice and indomitable spirit helped thousands of people in their darkest moments feel just a little less alone. Although our heartache at Joshua’s passing pains us beyond measure, we find comfort knowing that he is finally at peace.”

The Ashley didn’t post the story, as she was suspicious that it was not true, given Josh’s history of attention-seeking; the fact that the “family” was able to access Josh’s social media account immediately with the password and that no coroner’s report was available when The Ashley search for it. 

“You guys act like you’ve never faked your own death for attention!”

Now, according to Josh, “someone” hacked him in order to play a “cruel joke.”

“Hey guys, as you can see, I am alive and well,” Josh says in his video posted Tuesday. “My account was hacked for the last 24 hours. For the past 24 hours I have been trying desperately to get into it. Somebody was playing a cruel joke and mocking my mental illness and the struggles I’ve gone through with depression and suicide attempts. 

“I’m sorry for all the pain they caused when they made that post,” he continued. “I just got back into my account. I’m going to do all that I can with my team to try to identify who was behind this.

“But, again, I apologize for the confusion, but I will update you guys as more facts come in.” 

UPDATE! Josh’s ex-girlfriend, “90 Day Fiance” star Karine Staehle, called Josh out on Instagram on Tuesday for his stunt.

“Idiot, no one plays dead,” Karine wrote in English and Portuguese. “Josh is alive, what people are doing for followers is horrible.”

  1. So let’s play devils advocate and say he was hacked….you spent 24 hours trying to get back into your account instead of say, calling others to let them know you were definitely alive? Or if you know it caused pain to some (please let me know who that is) then why not call a news source like ET and say nope, still alive! It is sad that he is the type of person that people instantly called wolf when it was announced he died. He sucks

    1. @Megan– exactly! Why not go on Facebook Live or call media outlets and say “I’m alive, this is a mistake!” This fool has emailed me dozens of times trying to get a story written about him, even pretending to be other people. Yet he’s proclaimed dead and never emails anyone to correct it?! This person is trash. -The Ashley

  2. My 1st reaction yesterday was “good”.

    My 1st reaction seeing this today was “ugh, why?”.

    He needs to go away.. and I 1000% believe he posted about his own death for attention.

  3. Sorry for all the pain they caused when making that post? Surely no one gives a shit. That’s why he had to make that post himself to try and be relevant.

  4. Of all ppl to hack, not the govt or some billionaire CEO, not the student loan folks or the folks at Mastercard…

    This dude..

    Come one.

    1. It’s also the oldest trick in the book for desperate internet shit-stirrers. The next step for him is claim that his entire schtick has been a “social experiment” and that we all failed by acting exactly as he expected.

  5. Highly doubt this was a hacker. Lil stay pulled this stunt literally weeks ago. People are so bored and need validation soooo bad.
