Though MTV's The Challenge is a reality competition known for putting its competitors through insane physical tests, Battle of the Exes II was, without a doubt, the most emotionally taxing installment of the game in series history.
Very early in the show's 26th season, which began filming in Panama last August, fan favorite Diem Brown had to be medically evacuated to New York City, where she ultimately lost her third bout with cancer on Nov. 14 at the age of 34.
Less than two weeks later, Brown's castmate Ryan Knight was found dead on Thanksgiving morning after a night of partying.
Though both Brown and Knight died after the series wrapped filming, the show's winners – who spoke exclusively to PEOPLE after they were revealed on Tuesday night – couldn't help but acknowledge how their friends' deaths shed new light on their own victory and the season as a whole.
For those who haven't watched the Battle of the Exes II finale, be warned there are spoilers ahead.

[BRIGHTCOVE "4079860281001" "" "" "auto"] In the five years since MTV's Sixteen and Pregnant introduced moms-to-be Maci Bookout, Amber Portwood, Catelynn Lowell and Farrah Abraham to the world, so much has changed – yet so much has stayed the same.
In the first trailer for next month's Teen Mom OG, obtained exclusively by PEOPLE, we catch up with the original crew as they once again announce pregnancies, engagements and unwelcome returns.
Oh, and the "babies" are cuter than ever!

Ryan Knight's final moments on The Challenge were characteristic of his right-here-right-now lifestyle: a sudden departure after a volatile series of events that demanded full attention and yet somehow imparted a sense of business unfinished.
Indeed, Knight's own life was unfinished. Two months after his unexpected death on Nov. 27, MTV aired a special Challenge after show early Wednesday that featured a touching memorial to the five years Knight, 28, spent in front of the camera, starting with 2010's The Real World: New Orleans.

[BRIGHTCOVE "3985836747001" "" "" "auto"] From the brightly colored, sunshiny Hollywood seen in Nickelodeon's Victorious to the gritty, dimly lit streets of New York in her new show Eye Candy, Victoria Justice has made a huge career leap.
In MTV's new hour-long drama, Justice portrays Lindy, a 21-year-old tech genius with a keen distrust of the police force who let her sister's kidnapping go unsolved years before we meet her in the pilot.
Loosely based on a series of books by Goosebumps author R.L. Stine, Eye Candy follows Lindy as she helps other people find their missing loved ones using her hacking skills, which have landed her in trouble with the NYPD more than once.
