Rachel Reilly Dishes On Her Crying Fits On The Amazing Race And Her Feuds With The Other Contestants

April 09, 2012 02:00 PM by Lisa Princ

Last night on CBSAmazing Race, the teams headed to Africa, and once again, we watched Rachel Reilly break down in tears. In a recent interview, the former winner of Big Brother dished on her crying fits and her feuds with some of the other teams! Read on to hear what Rachel Reilly had to say.

The Amazing Race returned last night and immediately Rachel Reilly and Vanessa got into a battle of the bashes, with Vanessa telling Rachel that she needed to have a nose job. Rachel then broke down in tears as she has been doing all season long on the show, but in a recent interview, Rachel defended her crying fits. Rachel Reilly told TV Guide that she refuses to even take a potty break on show in fear of losing, but she has no problem finding time to cry, adding: “I know, I know! I’ve been crying a lot on this race. It’s my way to relieve stress. You have no idea how frustrating that salami-tasting challenge was! Hey, you try taking an 18-hour bus ride out of Argentina. You’d cry, too!”

As for her feud with the other teams, Brendon Villegas, Rachel’s fiance stepped in and said: “They (the other contestants) use Big Brother as an excuse not to like her. Because Rachel won Big Brother 13, they think we’re millionaires. She won half a million. And after California taxes, that’s not much!” Rachel Reilly, however, insists that she is just too fun and bubbly for them, thus why no one likes her. Hmm, perhaps it is her annoying whining and crying that has caused most of the teams to dislike her?

Rachel also cleared the air about her dumb comment a few weeks back when she claimed that she had no idea what a beard was. “Well, obviously I know what a beard is. I don’t know what made me say that. I don’t even remember saying it but, sure enough, I watched the episode and there it was. I guess my brain just stopped,” Rachel Reilly told TV Guide.

Does Rachel Reilly annoy you as much as she annoys us on the show? Who are you rooting for on The Amazing Race? Comment and share your thoughts with us below!

    RACHEL AND BRENDON! That is the only reason we are watching it! The only other couple we like is the Kentucky boys. Rachel is my favorite and I hope they win! Can’t stand Vanessa or the ICE Agents….idiots.

    I liked Rachael and Brendon on Big Bro and on this. They draw in a lot of viewers, so if you dont like them dont watch it.

    I like Rachael, so what if she is a cry baby about things, alot of people are. If everyone was the same, this world would be boring.

    Yikes!! Just when I thought it was safe to go back in the water! Brendon and Rachel now ln Amazing Race!! She is a drama queen and a big baby, hated her on BB, and hate her even more on Amazing Race. She is such a mean girl, and ugly inside and out. Brendon is really p-whipped. I really wanted the countryboys to win, now that they are out, anyone but Rache and Brendon!

    I love Brendon and Rachel. I hope they win now that Kentucky is out. I can’t stand Vanessa. She’s such a b****! There’s no reason to treat Rachel the way she has. You can’t say that Vanessa isn’t a cry baby. She whined and fought with her boyfriend when she had to walk up to the castle. I loved it when she couldn’t ride the bike! Go Brendon & Rachel!

    Tired of B&R and since the KY boys are out I hope the Border Patrol wins. Some of the others already have enough money and don’t need the million.

    In a way I don’t blame Rachel for being afraid to even to take a “potty break”, that’s exactly what got Kisha & Jen eliminated in Amazing Race 14 because it was enough time for Jaime & Cara to pass them to the Pit Stop.
