I started watching this race having no idea that these two were on BB. so my opinions are based from what I've seen of them in TAR20

Now we all know Rachel can be a whiny brat a lot of the time, but other than that, her and Brendon seem like really nice people and lots of fun. They are very competitive and have SMOKED some challenges. They are a strong team, and so far I wouldn't mind watching them win.
I would say they would've been eliminated in Leg 2 if Mark didn't help her at the Roadblock, but other than that they've placed quite consistently

And as much as I love Vanessa, Rachel has not done anything to deserve all the crap the other teams say about her
I can understand Art and JJ getting annoyed that Brenchel follow them, but hey, it's a game and there is no rule that state you can't do that

GO BRENCHEL!  :wohoo:  :conf:  :hearts:

Actually I too think that Brendon is probably a really nice guy. I have no issue with him. I feel sorry for him, actually.

Rachel, on the other hand - ewwwww. For one thing, she is 100% all about her - how she feels, how someone has been mean to her, that she is tired, etc, etc, etc. Never do you see her worried about Brendon or trying to make him feel better. (Brendon, on the other had, is constantly tending to her). She is extremely self-centered.

A second is that she never takes any personal responsibility for the clashes that happen. Anyone with any life experience knows that in arguments and altercations, both sides have done things to cause them, and both sides have missed opportunities to avoid or mitigate them. Rachel, however, acts as if she is a totally innocent victim of other mean nasty people. Hogwash.

A third is that she is extremely manipulative. Surely you do not believe that those are real tears you are seeing? They are just one of the many tools in her attention-getting toolkit.

In short, I have little use for a manipulative, self-centered drama queen.

Brendon & Rachel are awesome. As are their friends Bopper & Mark, Nary & Jamie, Kerri & Stacy, and the Clowns.  :hearts: The "nice" teams of TAR20  :luvya:

kungfuwoman,

You are entitled to your opinion, but give me a break! Rachel (partner to Brendon) is a whiny brat who is into manipulation.

This is based solely on what I have seen in Amazing Race 20, as I have no interest in what she did on BigBrother.

All of it is in self defense. Most of her hate is unwarranted IMO
Can we get some white belts in here this is horrible

Self-defense? Then how do you explain away the crying and whining even when she and Brendon are alone, such as in a taxi? How do you explain away the fact that Brendon has to manage her over and over again, calming her down, talking her out of her moods, catering to her emotional neediness?

(Actually not alone - the cameraman is there, which Rachel is all too aware of. She is performing. One has to be able to tell the difference between real and faked emotions.)

That is the very definition of manipulation, being needy and acting like a victim so as to coerce sympathy and attention from others. And Rachel is very, very good at it - as witnessed by the fact that she even has many RFF members fooled.

I agree with you, except that Brendon doesn't manage her. He is overbearing and makes it worse. But yes she is the ultimate drama queen and actor.

No, Vanessa takes it a step further and attacks personally Rachel has only attacked on a gameplay. Lets stroll down memory lane

Big Brother 12
"Floaters grab a life vest, KRISTIN" Calling Kristin a floater, someone who does nothing in the game.
I forgot the quote, but Rachel got pissed at Kathy for not letting her win and called her a floater to
After Rachel got evicted and then returned she called Ragan nasty things saying how he kissed *** to get himself further in the game

Big Brother 13
"Some of us like Porsche, Cassi" Cassi called Rachel CATTY and Rachel said her gameplay sucked
"You got caught Danielle, and Dominic will pay for it" Shelly exposed Danielle's plan to Backdoor Jordeff, and Rachel told them they were her targets and Dominic(already nominated) would pay for her scheming
I think she called Kalia/Adam/Shelly floaters. Thats gameplay

BUT She was a good guy. She protected Shelly's head from a raging Jordan <3 :lol:
"Stop it Jordan! OMG!"
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/4q1hDixxpX4" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/4q1hDixxpX4</a>

Vanessa, attacked Rachel's breasts and nose and basically her in general. Nasty. Rachel  >>>>> Vanessa

Rachel IS a GOOD person, she has a low self esteem and everyone uses that against her except her true fans :)

No Kandace, let's NOT stroll down memory lane. We are speaking about what we are seeing on TAR20.

What Rachel did on BB is no more relevant to the discussion than the missions Dave flew, or the arrests Jamie and Nary made, or the children Dave and Cherie entertained in hospitals.

Um excuse me, I was defending Rachel :res: I said she attacks on gameplay and NEVER personally, unlike Vanessawitch. :res: :res:

ETA: I did the "memory lane" thing because all her hate is from her legacy that she left behind on Big Brother. Ktia

First of all, there is no "hate" here at all. No one hates Rachel; SHE is the one that has spoken that word, not others (witness: "Let them drink their Hateorade"). Nothing that has been done by any of the teams at any time warrants such a strong emotion.

Second, I (and I believe some other commentators) have not watched so much as a second of Big Brother. I am basing my assessment (not "hate") purely on what we have been shown in TAR20.

Third, taking a simple assessment and calling it "hate" is itself a manipulative technique.

Fourth, I am only talking about Rachel here, not Vanessa. You are in effect saying that Rachel is good because Vanessa is even worse. That is a totally invalid and illogical argument.

Fifth, I'm not going to change your mind, and you are not going to change mine. So perhaps we should just stop now and let others talk.

Art & JJ/Davchel/Vanessa all "dislike" her for no reason. Brenchel never did anything to them. What actions have made you dislike them? None. Yes she cries, but every team on the race has cried. She has a low self esteem. If you saw a poor nerdy kid in High School crying, would you laugh at him and say mean things?

Your first two points are true for me too and I agree with the fifth as well :tup:
