You lived your life in the fast lane, and your smile was contagious. My bunkmate, my buddy. Rest easy pal, I'll miss you. @Knight_MTV — ZachMTV (@ZachMTV) November 27, 2014And, of course, a few very special messages from Knight's on/off girlfriend, Jemmye.
Words will never be enough to justify the connection we shared and the pain I will forever feel. RIP @Knight_MTVpic.twitter.com/EUzeoLEwdr

He knew I hated voicemails and constantly left them for me anyways... Typical Knight.. pic.twitter.com/VDhvgcU1QFThe Real World and The Challenge won't be the same without Knight and, as you can see, so many will miss him. This was the second big blow to the MTV family. The Challenge star Diem Brown passed away less than two weeks ago after her third battle with cancer. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Brown had been dating Chris "CT" Tamburello, who was on The Real World Paris as well as The Challenge. He proposed to Diem just days before she passed away.
