Big Brother followers everywhere are likely cringing after last evening’s episode, which featured houseguest Rachel…pulling a Rachel. When she was first in the house last season I think that most people would suggest that her biggest downfall was her mouth. If you remember near the end of last season when Pandora’s box was opened they repercussion on the house was that something awful would be released for 24 hours; that something that Rachel reentering the house for 24 hours.

As the episode unfolded last we learned that Brendan and Rachel were selected to compete in the Veto Competition. Unfortunately during the competition Jordan (the current Head of Household) was eliminated first; she had the option of remaining eliminated or she could get a second chance if she committed to two weeks of eating nothing but slop. Jordon did not take the slop challenge and remained eliminated – this did not sit well with Rachel. For the remainder of the competition she made snide remarks about Jordon not competing, the foolishness of continuing to compete if Jordon was not competing and other such remarks. Jeff (Jordon’s girlfriend) had all he could do to contain himself during the competition but certainly let Rachel have it after the competition was over.

It’s a shame that Rachel cannot even keep stay in the good books with her own alliance. I feel for Brendan who has to play the game as Rachel’s finance; if she keeps opening her big mouth it puts his game in jeopardy too.

Even though Rachel offered a forced apology to Jordon, I think Jordon’ faithfulness to their alliance (demonstrated through NOT putting Brendan and Rachel on the block even though it would have been a better move than putting Cassi and Shelly) may have Rachel reconsidering her emotional and bitter behavior. I guess time will tell…

Here is some wisdom for Rachel: “The mouths of fools bring them strife, and their mouths invite a beating.” (Prov. 18:6). The fact that she is a girl might protect Rachel from getting a beating from the guys…but I would hold your tongue around Cassi, Rachel!

Lets all learn from Rachel this week and wisely use the words we share with each other!
