Rachel Reilly was a houseguest on Big Brother 12 in which she finished in ninth place and became the first member of the jury, & the winner of Big Brother 13. In season 12, Rachel caused major drama for her overbearing personality, which led her getting into verbal fights with her fellow houseguests. When she was nominated against her only ally Brendon Villegas in week 5, she was unanimously evicted for being seen as the bigger threat of the duo. She would cast her jury vote for Lane Elenburg, feeling he had played the best social game.

She returned to the game in Big Brother 13 as part of the season duo twist, being partnered with her now fiancé Brendon Villegas. When the duo twist was released back onto the house for a week, her second partner was Jordan Lloyd. Rachel finished as the victorious winner of Big Brother 13.

Despite her constant irritation to houseguests and viewers, she and Brendon ("Brenchel") developed a huge fan base. Due to her competition prowess, she is considered one of the greatest physical players in the show's history.

Biography

Rachel Eileen Reilly, born October 16, 1984, is a cocktail waitress from Las Vegas, Nevada. She describes herself as "bubbly, drunk and adventurous." Rachel's favorite activities include painting, working out, doing anything outdoors, watching movies with friends, playing with her dog, getting dressed up, winning Big Brother, and going on dates. The hardest part of living in the Big Brother house for Rachel is "having your entire life televised." Before being cast on Big Brother 12, Rachel briefly was a swimsuit model for Hawaiian Tropic swimwear. Rachel was also on a magazine cover with Steven Tyler of Aerosmith. She is a graduate of Western Carolina University in Cullowhee, North Carolina. Her sister, Elissa Slater, was a contestant in Big Brother 15.

On September 16 2015 Reilly and Villegas announced that she was expecting their first child on a live taping on Big Brother 17. Their first daughter, Adora Borealis Villegas, was born in April 2016.
