The fourth-season winner of The Bachelorette helped to save a snowboarder's life by rescuing him in a remote area in Vail, CO, The CW's KWGN-TV affiliate in Denver, CO reported Friday.
Csincsak was reportedly snowmobiling about 10 miles off Interstate 70 and discovered 24-year-old Thomas Pazerunas from Chicago trudging through chest-deep snow about 10 miles away from the nearest ski lift.
According to KWGN-TV, Pazerunas snowboarded out of bounds while at the Blue Sky Basin ski area and unknowingly traveled 12 miles down the wrong side of a mountain.
Pazerunas was allegedly lost without cell phone service when Csincsak -- a professional snowboarder who resides in Breckenridge, CO -- came across him while snowmobiling and gave him a ride back to safety.
"I've been snowboarding in that area for 10 years and we've never gone this deep on the south side [of the mountain,]" Csincsak told RadarOnline on Friday. "But the snow had been light, so we just thought we'd check it out."
And thankfully, Csincsak did decide to explore the area, but he said the conditions in Colorado can be very dangerous for an inexperienced snowboarder like Pazerunas.
"Look, this guy's used to being in Chicago," Csincsak said. "One move like that here gets you in a body bag: first your temperature drops, then hypothermia, then you fall fast to sleep and freeze to death."
Csincsak proposed marriage to Pappas during the 2008 broadcast of The Bachelorette's fourth-season finale. Pappas accepted and subsequently presented her winning suitor with her final rose, but the couple reportedly split only four months later after Pappas claimed she and Csincsak were "two totally different people" once they "settled into their normal lives."
