    Wow, so sad. I know a lot of folks didn't like her when we posted on her previous Challenges and thought she was fake etc ... but I really admired her spunk and physicality and positive approach to her life.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diem_Brown


    Reality television appearances

    Fresh Meat was the twelfth season of Real World/Road Rules Challenge. Filmed in Australia, it featured two-player teams; each team had an alumnus of The Real World or Road Rules partnered with a newcomer to the Challenge (collectively known as "Fresh Meat") who was never part of one of the two aforementioned series. Brown was partnered with Road Rules alumnus Derrick, and the pair finished in fourth place in the competition. Brown, who was just completing her treatment for cancer, went on to compete in The Duel. She took off her wig during one of the competitions and this has been viewed as one of the most memorable and touching challenge moments.[3][4][5]
    MedGift

    Brown created the website MedGift, a patient gift registry, to help patients obtain help from family and friends while in treatment.[6]
    Personal life

    Brown dated fellow Challenge castmember Chris "C.T." Tamburello for over a year and a half after meeting on The Duel in 2006. Brown credited Tamburello for playing a role in her remission recovery and giving her confidence.[7] The couple competed on the same team on The Gauntlet III and were featured on the MTV documentary show MADE. Following their split, Brown and Tamburello competed as a team on Battle of the Exes, where they were the runner-ups in the final.[8]

    In 2012, her ovarian cancer returned and she started her second battle against cancer with chemotherapy treatments. In 2013, after several months of treatment, Brown's cancer went into remission.[7]

    After only two weeks out of her last chemotherapy, Brown went through her seventh Challenge season, Rivals II in 2013, because she was told by doctors during her second bout with cancer that "seeing 2013 was not that likely."[9] Her team finished in fourth place.[10]
    Death

    In August 2014, Brown was filming her eighth Challenge competition in Panama when she collapsed on set.[11] She was airlifted to New York and she announced to various media publications that her ovarian cancer had metastasized to her colon and stomach, and performed emergency surgery. Brown died on November 14, 2014, at 10:22 a.m. at the age of 32. Her final hours were spent in the company of friends and family. [12][13]

    Diem passing away hit me harder than I thought it would; maybe Jacoby and Litman were right, and Diem & CT are like the Charles & Diana of reality TV, but I somehow feel like I've known them, even though I've never even met them.

    Hate to be that guy, but it really does make me wonder what happens to the season, if CT loses his partner. I wonder if he ends up withdrawing from the season to be by her bedside.

    Not to be too cruel or cynical but I could see MTV replacing Diem, they do plan for that contingency and normally they wrap up filming in about 6 weeks that gives everyone time to complete the challenge and still go see Diem in the hospital.

    He leaves right along with Diem, which I'm sure he would have done even if they had planned to bring in a replacement for him. Plus they were together going into this challenge
