Ryan Knight, of The Real World Challenge and Real World New Orleans fame, died Thursday morning. The 29 year old reality star allegedly choked on his own vomit in his sleep following a night of partying with friends. TMZ is reporting that he had taken "some pills" earlier that night.
Knight rose to fame for his on again, off again tumultuous relationship with fellow cast mate Jemmye Carroll, and for knowing how to push the buttons of pretty much every person in the house.
One of those people was Frank Sweeney. The two nearly came to blows during their time together on Rivals II, culminating in an attack at the reunion show.
Jemmye claims drugs played a role in Knight's behavior that evening.
Prior to the reunion, the two headstrong rivals had gotten into a very heated back and forth exchange on twitter, that ended with Frank eerily predicting Knight's untimely death.
We'll all be watching with a heavy heart.
