At the age of 43years-old, former Road Rules star Brian Lancaster passed away on March 29, 2018. According to a statement made by Lancaster’s family to TMZ, the former reality star was found unresponsive in his home. To immediately quell any speculation of drugs or alcohol, the family stated that no substances were located within his home and that they believe his history of heart arrhythmia was the cause of death.
In 1999, Lancaster premiered on Road Rules: Latin America, describing himself at the time as a “jack of all trades.” According to the Road Rules alumni, he worked as a telecommunications project manage, a special education teacher, a bartender, and an advertising account manager before joining the cast of the seventh season of the MTV production. Lancaster was joined by 18-year-old Abe Ingersoll, 20-year-olds Gladys Sanabria and Holly Shand, and 21-year-olds Josh Florence and Sarah Martinez, who were all vying for the grand prize of $43,000. Road Rules: Latin America spanned 15 episodes and sent contestants on 13 different “missions.” While Lancaster didn’t win the grand prize, all participants went home with a “Handsome Reward”: a Volkswagen New Beetle.
