Diem Brown, Bryan Knight, The Challenge


When The Challenge family lost two of their own last November, it hit everyone hard, from close loved ones to cast members who had never even met Diem Brown and Ryan Knight. It was a rough month for Diem and Knight's friends, family, and even fans who had watched the two competitors for years on the MTV competition series.

And when The Challenge: Battle of the Exes 2 cast sits down for the reunion show after tonight's epic finale, those feelings of grief and loss are going to rear their heads once more as the cast members remember their friends who had both competed this season (Diem had to leave early due to her health, while Knight was eliminated earlier in the season).

We've got your exclusive first look at the emotional reunion special now, and we can promise that the tears are going to flowing, both onscreen and off. Get your tissues ready, people.

Press play on the video above to watch the exclusive first look to see Nia explain how losing Diem made her realize how life was short, and inspired her to make amends with Jordan after her actions toward him caused her to get disqualified from the game right before the finals began. Plus, check out what Zach had to say about speaking with Knight the day before he died and why he was at his best inside the "dysfunctional" house during The Challenge.

The Challenge: Battle of the Exes 2 finale block kicks off tonight with the S#!t They Should Have Shown special at 9 p.m., the finale at 10 p.m., and the reunion immediately after that at 11 p.m. on MTV.
