11. Ryan Dunn

Ryan Dunn had a lot of talents and he quickly rose to fame on MTV as one of the original members of Jackass, and also appeared on Viva La Bam. Unfortunately Dunn died at the age of 34 in 2011 after the Porsche he was driving veered off the road and burst into flames killing not only Dunn but also 30-year-old Jackass Number Two production assistant Zachary Hartwell in Pennsylvania.

10. Pedro Zamora

Pedro Zamora is one of MTV’s biggest legends after he appeared on only the third season of The Real World for The Real World: San Francisco in 1993. Zamora used his platform on the show to try to break taboos and tackle issues of prejudice concerning the LGBT community and also worked to raise awareness of HIV/AIDS. He is credited with personalizing those living with HIV, but sadly Zamora died on November 11, 1994 at the age of 22 due to complications of AIDS, passing away only hours after the season finale of his season of The Real World aired.
