I totally agree, muduh.
I didn't realize that I had begun to like her until I was worried that Andrea would win out in Flom4. Granted, I had begun to dislike Andrea alot towards the end of Flom3, but I think that Rachel is growing on me. I really disliked her most of Flom3 -- I was so annoyed when Preston chose her to stay for dinner over Rebekah. The editing was pretty unfair, I think. She really seems down-to-earth in the interviews. One clue to the editing process is that -- when asked directly her opinion on Rachel -- PJ only said that Rachel speaks her mind without thinking alot (other than the story of how Rachel talked about Andrea's check). IF PJ had said more, they would have shown it. But PJ detested Andrea. They edited Rachel that way so good would win over evil. Most of the really negative stuff came from Andrea.
Honestly, Rachel was right about the ludicrousy of choosing "love" over a million dollars -- when love is a few dates while the guy is dating a bunch of other girls. Which most of the Flom guys say openly, without much criticism. Plus, I liked how she spoke her mind to Preston when he didn't choose her.
