The Amazing Race 24

Here is an interview with Rachel Reilly:

Describe what you do: I compete in reality shows including "The

Amazing Race" and "Big Brother," as well as filming other reality lifestyle shows. Most people don't make a habit of doing competitive reality shows, but I keep getting asked back — obviously because I am so entertaining! I train for the shows mentally and physically for hours a day!!! I am going for the title of competitive reality TV tri-athlete, which means I will obviously have to compete on another CBS reality show.

Biggest mistake you made in your previous season: That would be trying to take a cab ride to Hawaii Pacific University. I really just wanted to spend more time in Hawaii, and knew if we won I wouldn't get asked back for another season … so it was a win win!

Most memorable moment from your first Race: The African Safari with my hubby. The romance and splendor of the birth in the African savannah; seeing the little baby twin elephants; witnessing baboons carrying their new born children; and romantic dinners at the end of every leg. Also, trying beers in every country we visited!

Favorite place you visited on your first season: Every place was amazing; it's hard to pick just one! That's like asking if I would rather play "Big Brother" or "The Amazing Race" again!
Why do you want to run the Race again? My motivation to run the Race again stemmed from my deep need to compete on reality TV. I think that America, and the world, needed to watch another season of #Brenchel going at it! I have to give the fans what they ask for and they really wanted us back. Oh, and Brendon promised me if we win I can have a Brenchel baby!!!!!

How have you changed since the last time you competed? I think I am the same, just more awesome and experienced!! We also got married, so that probably made a difference.

What are you passionate about? Other than being passionate about the hubs ... I am passionate about sharing my life with America. Brendon and I fell in love while you were watching; we had our first kiss while you waited to see if we would get voted out of the house; we won money to start a family while you cheered us on; we traveled around the world on an adventure of a life time while you laughed at my tears; we got married; and you shed tears with your besties. I love the entertainment industry — from competing on reality TV shows to filming my day-to-day life and making good TV.

People would be surprised to learn: I am an artist and headband designer! You can buy my designs online. I also paint glass! Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: Brendon and I just love each other too much and we always think the other one is right so it's hard to make a decision.

Pet peeve about your teammate: My lil' bookie has no flaws; he's perfect in every way!
What country and place would you most like to visit and why? I would like to scuba dive with sharks in the Pacific. You haven't lived until you've swam with sharks!

What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? I would like to have a Race baby, that way when we win the Race and have a baby we can tell them a really cool story about how they came into our lil' #brenchel family!

Any strategic changes you will make heading into this Race: I won't make any changes, since I am so competitive and have never been eliminated. Brendon and I want to have the record of the team never being eliminated… and winning "The Amazing Race 24"!!!

The Amazing Race 20

Here is an interview with Rachel Reilly:

Describe what you do: Just got off "Big Brother."

How will these skills help you win The Race? We're very competitive. Brendon and I work very well together: fast, strong, smart. If we can survive "Big Brother," we can do anything.

Three words to describe you: Fun, bubbly and effervescent.

Favorite hobbies: Working out, making clothes with glitter and hiking with my dog.

What famous person reminds you of yourself? Lucy from "I Love Lucy."

What famous person reminds you of your teammate? Ricki from "I Love Lucy." He's a fiery Hispanic and I'm the ditsy, flighty redhead.

What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? My B.S. Chem degree. I worked really hard. My magazine cover with Steven Tyler of Aerosmith. Winning "Big Brother."

What scares you most about traveling? I love it.

What excites you most about traveling? Meeting new people, experiencing new cultures and seeing the world.

Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together? Brendon is impatient.

Pet peeve about your teammate: Impatience. He's always rushing me.

What country and place would you most like to visit and why? Africa, on a safari. I'd love to go to Egypt and Kenya.

What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? Traveling around the world, bonding, falling deeper in love and working together as a couple.

Big Brother

Reilly was previously the winner of Season 13 of the CBS reality competition series "Big Brother." She was initially paired up with Villegas, whom she first met in 2010 while they were competing on Season 12. She came in ninth place that season. At the time, Reilly was a chemistry graduate student and VIP cocktail waitress from Las Vegas, Nevada.

When asked what three adjectives best describe her, Rachel Reilly says bubbly, effervescent and adventurous. Her favorite activities are painting, working out, doing anything outdoors, watching movies with friends, playing with her dog, getting dressed up and going on dates. She thinks the most difficult part about living inside the "Big Brother "house will be having her entire life televised.

Her strategy for winning: "I would hustle like I do at work when I get men to buy me champagne." She would not choose to live with negative people inside the house — "those who don't see the beauty in life and don't understand how fortunate we are to be alive." Of all the past "Big Brother" contestants, she likes Laura the most because she stuck up for what she believed.

She hates spiders and says her life's motto is: "Try everything out the world has to offer and always keep a smile on your face. Make the world a better place."

She says, "I have so many facets to my personality. I'm a model, a cocktail server, a chemist, a student, a charity head ... I have life experiences to share."
