Brendon Villegas and Rachel Reilly were a PhD student and event hostess who competed on The Amazing Race 20. They are both from Westwood, California. They are both former contestants on Big Brother, and Rachel is a former winner of the aforementioned show. They finished in 3rd, having never won a leg throughout the race.
