Ryan and baya from the real world dating
She even told PEOPLE that “in his heart, Knight always thought we would end up back together.” Knight’s death made that dream impossible, but Carroll does want to pay one final tribute to her friend, her love and her teammate and, in doing so, seek a little closure for her own business unfinished. What personality trait about him do you wish more people knew? Even on our season of , I was coming out of an abusive relationship that I never spoke of, and he was the first person that got me to talk about it. At the end of the day, I feel like I know him more than anyone, and that’s all that he would have wanted: He would have wanted his family to be there with his real friends and family. Honestly, like, we’ve done so many shows together and regardless of the good and bad he was there.
Carroll is the first to say she remained best friends with Knight, who admitted to a prior struggle with painkillers, through all his ups and downs. I still miss just picking up the phone and saying something to him. After the service, we all went to a bar and celebrated his life. He didn’t care about two years from now, he lived in the moment, and I learned in the last few months that life is too short to not do what feels right.

Then, Ryan invites some of the roommates to a screening of his final film at the New York Film Academy, titled No More Tomorrow. Weirdly, every single one of the roommates is there, and nobody says anything that makes us want to punch them through the television. Ryan’s brother calls to tell him that he’s expected to report to Fort Jackson in February and, at first, Ryan plays it off like it’s a really terrible joke, though it’s more like he’s trying to convince himself of that fact. Then his face just falls and his voice goes dead-inside and he hangs up the phone.But, from the moment I got that phone call, all the good memories started flooding. You have a soulmate in life and a love of your life. I’ve prayed on it, and I don’t know yet, but I will tell the stories.
