43-year-old Brian Lancaster passed away after suffering a heart failure on March 29, 2018, in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania.


Lancaster, best known for being one of the stars of MTV’s reality TV show Road Rules, had a history of heart problems. Before his death, he had suffered cardiac arrhythmia and abnormal heart rhythm.

All Cute All the Time reported that drugs and alcohol didn’t play any part in his death. Lancaster appeared in the show in 1999, when he was 23 years old. After that, he went on to finish his master’s degree in Elementary Education.

He is survived by his fiancé, Sarah, and his parents, Dennis and Carol. He was often described as a spiritual, a world traveler, and a ‘Barstool philosopher.’


The news about his passing was announced by the Dellavechia, Reilly, Smith & Boyd Funeral Home website. His role in the aforementioned show was quite important as he competed on 13 missions throughout 15 episodes.

Road Rules was shot in different cities of Mexico, Costa Rica, and the U.S. It debuted in 1995 and ran for 14 seasons, ending in May 2017.


The series portrayed five or six strangers stripped of their money and restricted to a life in an RV. They had to travel from location to location following a set of clues and missions. It was so good that it was nominated for an Emmy Award in 2001.

Lancaster also worked as an advertising account manager, a telecommunications project manager, a special education teacher and a bartender.

A private memorial service was held on April 5. Instead of flowers, his family asked people to contribute to Brandywine Valley SPCA, a no-kill animal shelter in West Chester, Pennsylvania, his hometown.

Even though he had a history of heart issues, his passing took his family by surprise, who is still mourning his death.
