Ryan Knight from "The Challenge: Rivals II" is one of the contestants on Season 24 of the MTV reality competition series in summer 2013. He is teamed up with his rival, Preston Roberson-Charles, with whom he clashed on their "Real World" season over sexual preferences and lifestyle, and their animosity only intensified when they were paired together on a challenge.

Knight previously competed in "The Challenge: Battle of the Seasons," where he was teamed up with his fellow cast members Jemmye Carroll, McKenzie Coburn and Preston Roberson-Charles from "The Real World: New Orleans" (2010), Season 24 of the MTV reality docu-drama.

The Challenge: Rivals II

Knight and Preston go together like gym socks and high heels, but that doesn't mean they aren't a force to be reckoned with. Surrounded by perfect physical specimens, Knight and Preston are constantly underestimated as competitors, but wouldn't want it any other way. Knight reveals, "People look at us and are like, 'Hey, we want to bring these guys to the Final.' What they don't know is Preston is a runner. Preston can run for days." Their rivalry dates back to their stint on The Real World: Back to New Orleans. Preston recalls, "Knight and I have always had a very messy relationship. If Knight's opening his mouth, he's saying something offensive. I don't know how we're going to get along." Can Preston keep his heart in the game long enough to knock out a win? Or will Knight's mind games drive him away once and for all?

The Challenge: Battle of the Seasons

Ryan Knight and Jemmye Carroll may have found love in NOLA, but their relationship recently ended when Knight cheated on Jemmye with his ex-girlfriend. Even more than winning "The Challenge," Knight hopes to win back Jemmye's heart and convince her he's a changed man, "She's playing hard to get, but I'm persistent." Knight will also have to set aside his differences with Preston, who is far more at home on the dance floor than the playing field.

The Real World: New Orleans

Knight is a Wisconsin native who has lived and breathed hockey for as long as he can remember. Recently his life was turned upside down after a severe shoulder injury cost him his athletic/academic scholarship at Arizona State University and left him unable to play the sport. During recovery he became addicted to painkillers, and now everyday is a battle to remain clean. Reclaiming his life, Knight is currently teaching hockey clinics to children and pursuing his marketing degree at University of Milwaukee. Although he's known for his promiscuity, he's not afraid to show his romantic side when he finds the right girl, which just might happen to be a fellow roommate. Knight is most excited to move to New Orleans so that he can get away from all the negative influences in his life back home. But will the city, best known for its twenty-four hour party life, distract Knight from all of the positive progress he has made?

What a piece of s**t! Ignorant, immature & a truly ugly person both inside & out!! He only feels good about himself when he's bringing /putting someone else down. Just because you hate yourself to such an intense degree, does not justify nor give you the right to drag others into your hellish-cesspool of what you call a life! What a miserable human being!! Fortunately, life has a way of kicking people like him in the *** !! He's set himself up for a miserably long & lonely life. Good luck, cause you're definitely going to need it!!!!
