The Amazing Race returned last night with brand new contestants, including Big Brother winner Rachel Reilly and her fiancé Brendon Villegas. While Brendon and Rachel appeared to be one of the stronger teams from the start, Rachel Reilly revealed that the competition was actually tougher than they imagined, as she told People Magazine: “I don’t think I knew what I was getting myself in to. I thought, ‘We could totally do this,’ but the Race is so different from Big Brother.”
Brendon Villegas backed up Rachel, saying it was definitely tough because: “Between all the traveling and the odd times you don’t get a lot of sleep. That’s why people make stupid decisions.” And we definitely saw stupid decisions, or at least stupid actions from a few of the teams on last night’s premiere. While Rachel Reilly and Brendon Villegas could not reveal how far they get in the competition, Rachel did promise us plenty of drama, adding: “We can get in plenty of fights, but at the end of the day Brendon and I are in it to win it. We are going to keep going even if one of us gets down.”
