Real World star Ryan Knight has died at age 29. The MTV alum made his debut on 2010’s “Real World New Orleans.” According to TMZ, Knight died after a night of hard partying. A few of his friends say he was out partying on Wednesday with a group of people and went to a friends house. On Thursday his friend found him dead. The friend said he choked on his own vomit, but other friends say he had taken some pills when he was partying.
Knight had a very public hookup with fellow cast member, Jemmye Carroll. They eventually exited the show a couple, but they had a ton of ups and downs and eventually split. He was now dating someone new and was happy. This is the second MTV reality show death this month, Diem Brown passed away after a long battle with cancer.

There is an age discrepancy, some say he was 27 while others say he was 29.
