You either love them or hate them but you can't get rid of them. On Jan. 27, People Magazine announced that Brendan and Rachel originally of "Big Brother" fame are coming back to "Amazing Race."

The couple, referred to by fans as "Brenchel," have an enormous fan base. We saw that on the last season of "Big Brother" when Rachel Reillly's little sister Elissa joined the crew. She was consistently voted as a fan favorite, no doubt due to her family connection.

Brendan Villegas and Rachel Reilly were engaged the last time they appeared on "The Amazing Race." Now married since 2012, the couple have not had children yet but are planning on it. Another reality tv win for the couple is just what they need to start building that nest egg.

In their last appearance on "The Amazing Race" the couple did not win a thing. "Brenchel" were incredibly competitive both times they appeared on "Big Brother" but seemed to fall short in the teamwork department during their last reality tv stint. Here's to hoping they can pull it together this time.

"The Amazing Race All-Stars" premieres Feb. 23 on CBS.
