A Saint on Reality TV?
Brachel, the reality behind Reality TV
Is Brendan Villegas a Saint, or Just A Lonely Idiot?
Could there possibly be a more whiny person than Rachel Reilly, she of "Big Brother" fame? During her "reign" on Big Brother, she was known as the whiniest person to ever be on that show, and now she brings her special charms to the once fun to watch "The Amazing Race". Woo hoo, pass the cheese and crackers. Now, her fiancee, Brendan Villegas, a medical student with no apparent disfigurements or other reasons why he would not be able to land his share of shapely young lovelies, is shown to the world as a person who not only puts up with the whiniest cry baby
From a recent episode of The Amazing Race, from Rachel to Brendan after she whimpered on about not being able to taste the salami (yeah, yeah, read into that what you want...);
"Oh, my God! We're not on Big Brother, Brendan! I can't do this"
Yes, it is sad. A grown woman who has centered her life around being on 2 episodes of Big Brother. She was brought back for the second show because the producers just loved the hatred and recrimination that her presence brought to a group dynamic. Just being around her makes people meaner and more hateful than they would ever normally be.
If you really want to be ticked off and get into the worst mood that you've ever been in, try watching a full season of Storage Wars followed by the full season of The Amazing Race with Brendan and Rachel. Not only do you end up wanting to smash anyone who ever says "yuuuup!" in public, repeatedly over the head with a sledgehammer while feeding his face through a meat grinder, but you also end up as a manic depressive living the rest of your life in the looney bin.
I've watched every episode of The Amazing Race so far this season, and there's not one episode yet where Rachel doesn't break down crying and running away, her big ole butt bouncing and jiggling like a frozen jello and pudding mixture. One thing that does come to mind is that Rachel and Dave Hester (he of the "yuuup" and the conceit, the smugness and the superiority complex from Storage Wars) are, combined, worse than all other participants and actors on every single reality TV show going. And that includes the gang from Jersey Shore!
Now, I don't know whether Snooki would possibly be outdone as the worse idol to look up to for young girls, but if any of you are reading this, acting like Rachel does will NOT land you a man like Brendan, but more like Dave Hester, because, well, let's face it; if Dave Hester were to find true love with a real woman, the end of the world should be just around the corner. There just can't be any women out there who would fall in love with that little piggy of a man, and if there is I as one sure wouldn't want to meet her - she would be like a mix between Rachel and one of those women from Swamp People.
Now, here's my question; Since the people who organize these reality TV shows knew exactly who Rachel was and what she was like, why would they want her on their show? Was it for her legion of fans that bow at her feet and feed off of the remnants of crab poop? Or was if her sunny disposition, her openly friendly and outgoing manner? Or was it to see if they put the worst possible contestants on the show, would they be able to survive the possible murder attempts by their race adversaries?
