in the game of love Rachel Riley And the Brendon Villegas Really came out on top.
It’s hard to believe it’s been nearly 11 years since Big brother The contestants first laid eyes on each other inside the house.
“Brendon told us he’s a swimming coach and I said, ‘I’m not going to fall in love with this guy,'” Rachel recalled thinking during an exclusive interview with E! News. “He’s just a swimming coach.”
Brendon added, “I saw Rachel, and of course I thought she was sexy, but she’s just another Las Vegas girl.”
But after strangers found themselves in the block together while competing for the $500,000 jackpot, something unpredictable happened. They fell in love and became one of the show’s biggest success stories.
“Admittedly, I still remember that first night,” Brendon recalls. “Rachel was laughing and the schoolgirl was about me, but I was very skeptical. Even though I loved her and thought she was great, I was still very afraid of falling in love with someone inside this game. When we were put on the block, it was what solidified her.”
