The Real World and The Challenge’s Ryan Knight dead at 29

Ryan Knight, who starred in the 24th season of The Real World: New Orleans and The Challenge, died earlier today.

According to TMZ, Knight was out partying on Wednesday evening and ended up staying at a friend’s house. He was discovered dead early Thursday morning.

Sources claim Knight choked his own vomit; however, details including toxicology reports and official cause of death have yet to be released.

This news is coming on the heels of another death in the MTV family. Less than two weeks ago, fellow cast mate Diem Brown passed away after a 10 year battle with cancer.

Three days ago, Knight tweeted this message that was likely meant to be inspirational but now seems quite ominous:

At the time of his death, friends say Knight was in a good place. He was also in a happy relationship with Makenzie Jauer who had this to say of his sudden passing, “I’m so angry at God right now. My heart is completely broken.”
