His real name is Kevin C. Olaeta, He was a 31-year-old resident of Petaluma.

Kevin also loved working on his motorcycles and car. Kevin demonstrated great skill working in his father’s electrician business. Clients and friends were drawn to his cheerful, friendly personality. His kindness to all people and animals is a tribute to the beauty of his heart and soul.
Dr. Sandra Lee, MD, who is known for the extraordinary care and consideration she gives her patients, posted a tribute to Olaeta on Instagram shortly after the episode aired.
“I found out months after our taping that Kevin had passed away unexpectedly,” Dr. Lee wrote in the caption. “Love and strength to his family and friends, especially his father.”

Olaeta saw Dr. Lee for a large cyst on his jawline that had been growing steadily for six years. He told the famed dermatologist that the bump looked like a “jawbreaker” protruding from his cheek. In his episode, Olaeta said he wanted the growth removed so he could “go out into the world and hang out and meet people.”
