Man... Rachel is one spoiled brat... was hoping the "Brachel" duo was getting nominated... oh well.

Gotta like Dominic's game so far..

I really don't know what Brendon sees in her. Honestly. I like Brendon and I think he's similar to myself, in that he doesn't like confrontation, he's sensible and has a strong head, and knows what is required to win the game.
He's obviously not playing with his head...well not that head anyways. And Rachel is not that cute.

His first reaction to when Jeff lashed out at her was to not back her and ask her why she did what she did... odd way to react to someone you "love" if you ask me. Save that for later.

Anyone else hear Rachel going to the washroom when during the live show they left her mic on the whole time and all we heard was the tinkle of water.

It was just before she went out and won HOH again....these newbies have no chance lol.

He's verbally abusive by talking down to her IMHO. Granted, I don't like her.

Very upsetting.



Rachel is hard to look at with no makeup.
Imagine if the show was in HD.

It seems like they really played up the whole post-Veto "fight". That was from Saturday night and by the time BBAD was on that night everyone was getting along again. I think that's why Jordan kind of gave Julie a funny look when she asked if she seriously considered putting Rachael up.

The late night live feeds do show him talking down to her, telling her to keep her mouth shut and one time telling her not to drink any alcohol that night. But I think he's thinking game. It may come across as abuse, I suppose. I see it more as someone who's frustrated. He hinted during one of the the After Dark sessions that it was her idea to come on the show this second time, and he sees her falling into the same trap she did last year, making everyone hate her.
I think he's just trying to protect her from that and also trying to go as far as they can. But he certainly seems the controlling type. They've had fights over whether or not she should do botox.

Abusive or not, I don't see their relationship lasting very long.

For sure. In fact BBAD was fairly boring this week; there has been very little conflict since the post-veto.

Yes, I see that. He did that last night too, telling her flat out not to talk game alone, without him and then getting upset when he found out she spoke to Dom earlier about the Veto. But Danielle was in the room with them at the time and agreed with Brandon, telling Rachel the same thing.
And Shelli and Jordan also told Rachel the same thing. "Keep your mouth shut."
I'm not saying B may be or may not be abusive outside the house, but telling her not to talk game is in fact the right thing for him to do, if he wants her to win the game.
She may think it's condescending, and it is, but her mouth was her undoing last year and will be again this year. Brendon knows that. Her only chance of winning is for her to keep quiet.

Almost already is this year. All it would take is for someone outside of JJ or herself/Brendon to win HOH and she is gone. She is one the best competitors in the history of the game. If she had any idea how to keep her mouth shut, she'd have the chance to be one of the best overall players.

I hope Kalia goes this week. She might be the only one more annoying than Rachael.
