“We have no idea who was filming or why,” Canales said.

Plitt was known as the star of the Bravo reality show "Work Out," and had also appeared on the soap opera "Days of Our Lives" and films such as "Terminator Salvation" and "Grudge Match," according to the Internet Movie Database.

"We couldn't take our eyes off Greg Plitt after we cast him on 'Work Out'-was as nice as he was beautiful," Bravo talk show host Andy Cohen wrote on Twitter on Sunday morning. "Seemed invincible, like Superman."
