Love them or hate them, Rachel and Brendon from Big Brother had people talking last summer. Rachel Reilly ended up winning Big Brother 13, and she remains engaged to Brendon Villegas from the show. Now Reality Blurred is sharing that the two are headed back to reality television, whether fans want them back on-screen or not. Filming of The Amazing Race 20 has just begun, and spoilers indicate that Rachel Reilly and Brendon Villegas are one of the teams racing.
The Amazing Race spoiler fans have team discovery practically down to a science. Folks at sites like Reality Fan Forum always figure out the teams long before CBS announces them, and it didn’t take them long to confirm this one. In addition, fans at LAX saw them there, and when there are film crews, backpacks, clue envelopes and logos involved, it doesn’t take long to figure out what is happening. According to Reality Blurred, Rachel and Brendon were seen Saturday night at LAX and photos were posted on Twitter.
As fans of The Amazing Race know, casting teams that have already been on the network’s other reality shows is nothing new for the show. This season featured Survivor’s Ethan Zohn and Jenna Morasca, though they were eliminated early. Jeff Schroeder and Jordan Lloyd also participated right after their first season of Big Brother, and “Boston Rob” Mariano and Amber Brkich competed right after Survivor as well.
What do you think of Rachel and Brendon from Big Brother shifting over to The Amazing Race? Will you be tuning in to see them compete, or does this turn you off of the show? Will you be rooting for them to win, or watching to see if they implode like they usually do?
