As 1 of 12 cast members, former Lamar Citizen DeQuincey “Quincey” Walker, is currently competing to be the next Tough As Nails champion!

Born and raised in Lamar, SC, to DeQuincey Walker, Sr. and Jacqueline Holmes Bowman, Quincey attended Lamar Schools, contributed to 3 consecutive State Football Championships and led the Track and Field team to 8 consecutive State Track Titles.  Quincey married the precious Tiffany Walker, also from Lamar, and have been blessed with 2 beautiful children.  They now reside in Florence.   It was actually his beloved wife who signed him up for the CBS reality hit show, Tough As Nails: Season 3!

Quincey by trade is a Diesel Mechanic – with the great mind of an Engineer, able to take on all kinds of heavy equipment-  which makes him the perfect cast member for the reality show that celebrates everyday Americans who roll up their sleeves, believe in hard work and aren’t afraid to get dirty.  Competitors are tested for strength, endurance and mental toughness, working on real job sites.

Three year old son DeQuincey Christian Walker, looks up to his daddy as a hero.  And adorable 10 month old, Mackensleigh Grace Walker, is daddy’s little girl.  Quincey is not only representing the beautiful family he has been blessed with, but his friends, employer and community organizations of the great Town of Lamar.
