The reality TV star-turned-politician defeated Democrat Patrick Kreitlow on Tuesday in the election, keeping his U.S Representative status intact. The staunch Republican finished his first term amid cries for his ousting from Democratic critics, who refused to accept him after he took over from their rep Dave Obey, who retired in 2010 after 41 years on the job.

Duffy, who is a former district attorney, appeared on the sixth season of "The Real World" in Boston, and on "Road Rules: All Stars" in 1998, where he met his wife Rachel Campos.
