Joshua Marks, a reality TV star and runner-up in the cooking competition "MasterChef", died last week from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. He had struggled with mental illness.
But the 26-year-old, who stood at 7 feet 2 inches tall, was known by friends as a "gentle giant." His family has provided Dr. Drew with these photos in remembrance of his young life.
