When you think of The Challenge, the first name that comes to mind is probably Ryan Knight. The reality star was a fan-favorite after competing on several seasons of the show and starting a complicated relationship with Jemmye Carroll during the third episode of Real World: New Orleans. The two became bitter exes before forming a true friendship, but Knight left this life too soon in November 2014.
Just weeks after Diem Brown passed away from cancer, 29-year-old Challenge veteran Ryan Knight was found dead at his friend's house after a night of partying. A toxicology report revealed that Knight had multiple drugs in his system including a deadly combination of methadone, tramadol, cocaine, and Xanax — and alcohol.
While Knight's death was a blow for his family, friends, and the thousands of fans that followed him on MTV, it was also a major blow to the close-knit Challenge family. When the cast reunited for this season's Battle of the Exes 2, it was obvious that Knight and Brown were deeply missed by everyone involved.
Now, a few months after Knight's passing, the challenge stars have finally released a tribute video in honor of their late friend. Check it out below and let us know what you think in the comments.
