Former Real World Star Sean Duffy Elected To Congress

Remember when The Real World wasn’t all about who could get alcohol poisoning  and hook up with a stranger first?

Back in the 90s, when the show hadn’t started its downward spiral into lameness, a dorky dude names Sean Duffy was cast on The Real World: Boston. He was put thrown in with seven strangers, picked to live in a house, and have their lives taped, to see what happens when people stop being polite and start getting real.

Yeah, I went there.

Now, several years later, Duffy is a father of six, a husband (married to Rachel Campos, former Real World San Fran alum) and now, Republican victor in Wisconsin for the House of Representatives.

Duffy appeared on the show in 1997 and has used his fame to help gain him popularity, which helped him win in the race for Wisconsin’s 7th District seat.

“Thanks Wisconsin,” he tweeted shortly after his opponent, Democratic state Sen. Julie Lassa, conceded. “You decided America’s best days are ahead of us! Let’s get back on track!”

Duffy was cast as the token conservative on the show, and went on to become a lawyer and then DA before entering politics.

Oddly enough, another ex-Real World cast member, the always moody poet Kevin Powell, from the very first season on the show, lost his third race for Congress in this season’s primaries.

Kind of a bummer for him, but hey, there’s always a Real World/Road Rules challenge!
