Big Brother's Rachel: I Want to Come Back to the House
Saddled with an ill-advised showmance and with alliances rallying against her, the girl who described herself as "quintessential Vegas," finally crapped out after being put up on the block alongside her man. The latest evicted housemate sits down with PEOPLE and dishes on what went wrong, the burden of love in the BB house – and her hopes at a surprise comeback.
Brendon went on the offensive to keep you in the house. He threw away his chances at half a million dollars for you. If your feelings for him were so strong, why didn't you try to stop him, or at least make the same offer to him?
I did try to stop him. I did make him the same offer. He and I discussed which one of us we wanted to keep in the game when we knew that one of us was going home. It was a mutual decision. He told me he wanted to do it and NOT to stop him.
You were such a strong player, and Brendon couldn't seem to pull his weight. Do you think Brendon let you down when it mattered the most?
He didn't let me down, but I wish he would have won.
Had you stayed in the house, and won the HOH, who would you have put up for eviction?
Britney, Matt and Ragan. They all wanted to see me go. They all were coming for me and they all were really mean to me.
With each eviction, your outgoing message was, "Ain't nobody getting between me and my man!" Do you think the showmance blinded you to a point? Why do you think that were trying to break you up rather than playing the game?
I don't think they were trying to break us up. I think they were trying to break up our strong alliance because we were both strong players. I still don't want anyone getting between me and my man!
Going into the eviction ceremony, did you think you had a chance to stay? Where you surprised by the unanimous vote to evict you?
I was hoping I had a chance to stay. I wasn't surprise by the unanimous vote because I didn't think anyone wanted me there.
What do you think Julie meant when said this may not be the last you'll see of the BB house? Do you think you may be brought back?
Yes, I think I might be brought back. More than anything, I want to come back. I was so excited when I heard that. Please bring me back!
