As with most imports from other CBS Reality Shows, they were not popular with the other teams due to their Stunt Casting status and already having won that show, but certain teams had a hatred for Rachel that people did not have for previous imports, probably because she constantly whined and complained about everything.
Whatever it was, Rachel was berated right up to the finale, where they would fall behind when they mistakenly jumped in a cab instead of running to a nearby baseball field to catch a helicopter, and ended up 3rd.
