Sad news this Thanksgiving holiday: The Real World star Ryan Knight has died. He was 28.
On Thursday, Thanksgiving Day, just after 10 a.m., police in Kenosha, Wisconsin received a call about "a 28-year-old male was unconscious and not breathing" inside a home. Officers and paramedics arrived at the scene and were unable to resuscitate the person, who was identified as Knight. He was a cast member on MTV's The Real World: New Orleans in 2010 and The Real World and Road Rules spinoff The Challenge in 2013.
"We are saddened to hear the news of the passing of Ryan Knight," MTV said in a statement to E! News on Friday. "Our thoughts and condolences are with his family and friends at this difficult time."
Knight's death comes about two weeks after one of his co-stars on The Challenge, Diem Brown, lost her battle to cancer at age 32. He was one of several of her former colleagues and friends who had expressed condolences over her death on Twitter.
