Rumors and gossip aside, I find Rachel to be one of the more endearing players this season, much to my surprise (I am not at all fond of the last Rachel from Las Vegas on Big Brother).
She was very kind to Sam during the robot phase, she didn't flinch about shaving JC's back (yikes!), and she just seems to be pretty affable and self-effacing in general. I really felt sorry for her getting the crap app last week.
She's not the most dynamic player around, but the season is still young.
Also, it doesn't hurt that she's extremely attractive.
