Brendon and Rachel Talk The Amazing Race

Big Brother faves turned Amazing Race contestants Brendon Villegas and Rachel Reilly this week had a little Q&A with TV Guide about their time on The Amazing Race so far and how it compares to their Big Brother experiences. Here's a look:

Reilly: I won't even stop to pee. One season a team lost by doing that.

TV Guide Magazine: The girls are always talking smack about Rachel, especially that Vanessa. What's their beef?
Villegas: They use Big Brother as an excuse not to like her. Because Rachel won [BB13] they think we're millionaires. She won half a million. [Laughs] And after California taxes, that's not much!
Reilly: I'm just too bright and bubbly for them. And they don't like my outfits. Clearly, they're sequin haters.
