Former The Real World Boston cast member Sean Duffy spoke at the Republican National Convention yesterday, and although he’s been a member of Congress for a while now, it’s still weird to see him in this context.
It’s also weird that he’s introduced as “the former world champion lumberjack athlete” instead of “the former MTV star who’s now married to another Real World star.”
Sean clearly has been studying Big Brother Dan and Joe School of Shouting, as he basically barks empty platitudes for a few minutes. That’s what these convention speeches are for, of course, especially in the middle of the day, regardless of the party.
It’s also kind of hilarious that only his delegation from Wisconsin seems to be paying attention, and the slight applause is awkward. But at least he didn’t say something ridiculous like how he “struggles” on his $174,000 a year salary.
