Who would’ve thought that not only would Rachel win Big Brother this season but that fans of the show would be happy about it? There was no doubt she’d be a competitor and no doubt she’d have a target on her back, but she realized that in order to walk away with half a million dollars, she’d have to be willing to change her strategy as the game went on.
You had a lot of people rooting for you and happy that you won. You were worried about how people felt about you after season 12 and how you’d be viewed this summer. Do you feel like you changed people’s minds about you?
Rachel: Yes! It’s crazy because I had no idea how America was seeing me. It did definitely change and I am shocked and thankful. I was really scared. I thought people loved to hate me. This summer, I had people cheering for me! I was like, “I’m not used to this. This is crazy!” It’s exciting and surreal. I’m so happy. After Brendon left, I had to change and evolve and grow up. Jordan helped me so much with my social game and we really balanced each other out. Thank God for Jordan – that’s all I have to say!
