Rachel Campos was cast on The Real World: San Francisco in January 1994 and lived in the house on Russian Hill in San Francisco with her six housemates from February 12th to June 19th. The season premiered on July 6th, 1994.

On the show and in MTV’s promotional materials for the show, Campos was depicted as a passionate Republican, whose heroes included Jack Kemp, and as a Catholic, though she conceded her strict religious upbringing fostered within her a rebellious streak that sometimes brought her into conflict with her parents. Her political viewpoints led to conflict with her housemates on more than one occasion, as when Mohammed Bilal ridiculed the Republican housing ideas that she expressed in Episode 3. In Episode 18, after Campos invited her housemates to a College Republicans function, self-described liberal Winick opined that the speakers at the function were sexist, homophobic, and racist, a view which Campos objected to as unfair.

In 1999 Campos filmed Road Rules: All-Stars, along with alumni of other past Real World seasons, such as Sean Duffy of the Real World: Boston cast, whom she would later marry.
