Ryan Knight, who was featured on Real World: New Orleans and MTV’s The Challenge, died on Thursday, TMZ.com reports. He was 29.

The story says Knight, who detailed a past struggle with an addiction to painkillers during his time in New Orleans, was found dead on Thursday morning after partying on Wednesday night. A cause of death is still unknown.

The news comes less than two weeks after fellow Challenge star Diem Brown died after a long battle with cancer. The two competed against each other during season 24 of the long-running competition series.
