Last spring, the former nuclear engineering student tried out for a role on MTV’s Real World television series. He was picked and spent the summer on the cast of The Real World: San Diego. The series began airing last September. Stodghill was also cast as part of the MTV Real World/Road Rules spin-off series The Challenge: Battle of the Exes, which premiered in January.
