A bit about Rachel

Rachel Reilly was a VIP cocktail waitress in Las Vegas, Nevada. She now lives in California with her husband, Brendon Villegas. She is trying to make it as a reality star and has done good so far with 2 seasons of Big Brother, 3 seasons of The Amazing Race, and a webisode series called Adventures4Pets that she hosted. Plus, Brendan and Rachel's wedding was featured on WETV in the show My Fair Wedding. Rachel has also had a recurring role as a waitress on The Bold and the Beautiful.

Rachel and Brendon have now welcomed two children together, a daughter named Adora and a son named Adler.

In the summer of 2010, she appeared on the 12th season of Big Brother. Big Brother is a competition where 13 (or so) house guests live in a house together away from all other communications with the outside world. They must compete in competitions to win Head of Household (HOH), power of veto, and even for food, instead of "slop". Shortly after starting on the show, she started a "showmance" with another contestant, Brendon Villegas. They quickly became inseparable. Rachel finished in 9th place and became the first member of the jury.

In the summer of 2011, she appeared in the 13th season of Big Brother. She and her fiancé, Brendon, returned as 1 of 3 "Dynamic Duos", along with couple Jeff and Jordan from Season 11 and father-daughter Dick and Daniele from Season 8. This time, Rachel came out on top and became the 13th winner of Big Brother, receiving $500,000.

During the winter of 2012, Rachel and Brendon competed on another CBS show, the Amazing Race. This was the 20th edition. The show features 11 teams of 2 competing in a race around the world. During the race, they have to fly to different cities in many different parts of the world, take taxis, buses, or walk to a location, and get clues to the next destination. They then have to compete in a challenge. The first 10 teams to the final location (revealed by the last clue) will make it to the next round. The next time, 9 teams will advance, and so on until there is 1 winning team. Rachel and Brendan made it to the final 3 competition and earned third place in a very close race.

Rachel and Brendon were on The Amazing Race again, in the 24th season. It was an All-Stars addition. During the 4th leg, Brendon and Rachel were the last team to arrive. However, it was a non-elimination round, so they got to continue. In a future leg, they had to perform in a Speed Bump challenge before they could continue. Rachel and Brendon yet again got 3rd place on the show.

My Fair Wedding

Rachel and Brendan met on Big Brother, and have been together ever since. In 2012, they decided to get married, and their wedding was featured on the television show, My Fair Wedding, on WETV.

Rachel hosted the website and webisodes of Adventures4Pets, along with her sister, Elissa. They went around the U.S. and found the most pet-friendly places that you could bring your animals along.

Rachel came back for a third time to The Amazing Race. This time, she competed with her sister, Elissa. They were on a reality competition edition where players from The Amazing Race, Big Brother, and Survivor all competed. They got 7th place.

This was the 31st season of the show. Rachel and Elissa, Nicole and Victor, and Janelle and Brittney were all former Big Brother players. Rachel and Janelle are now good friends, while she and Nicole have no relationship.
