Samantha "Sam" McGinn is a roommate on The Real World: San Diego.


Sam is a self-described "stud lesbian." Known as a girlfriend stealer, Sam was involved in a dramatic love triangle in high school that ended in two girls being outed. The daughter of military parents, Sam lives at home in Chesapeake, Virginia, and is in college studying to become a parole officer. Her relationship with her mother was strained over her sexuality when she first told her, but over time the relationship has improved. Sam is passionate about gay rights and has recently made a splash in the lesbian community by performing as Shawn Jade, her drag king alter-ego. With a house full of bikini-clad beauties in San Diego, will any of the girls catch her eye?


After Real World

Sam moved back to Viriginia where she continued her drag king show.
