Janelle Pierzina, Rachel Reilly talk 'Big Brother', 'The Amazing Race', 'Snake in the Grass'


A pair of Big Brother legends, Rachel Reilly Villegas (Big Brother 12, winner of Big Brother 13, The Amazing Race 20, Amazing Race 24, Amazing Race 31) and Janelle Pierzina (Big Brother 6, Big Brother 7: All-Stars, Big Brother 14, Big Brother 22: All-Stars, Amazing Race 31) visit the Jack Vita Show to reflect on their time on Big Brother and The Amazing Race, and discuss their latest adventure: USA Network's Snake in the Grass.


Rachel and Janelle look back on their time on Big Brother and discuss how the franchise has changed over the years. Janelle first played in 2005 and most recently played in 2020. What was it like being disconnected from the world in the chaotic year that was 2020? What would Rachel and Janelle change about Big Brother, and why does Janelle think Big Brother should entirely get rid of its live feeds? Why did Rachel and Janelle say "no" to CBS' The Challenge: USA, and what are their thoughts on the new show thus far? What do these ladies feel is changing reality television for the worse, as a whole?


Later, they preview and discuss their new show, Snake in the Grass, with their episode airing on Monday, August 29 at 11pm ET. They will be teamed up with Survivor stars Stephenie LaGrossa Kendrick and Cirie Fields! Find out what we can expect from their upcoming episode! Get ready to laugh, because it's another hilarious edition of the Jack Vita Show you will not want to miss!
