Scott's Initial Impressions - Elissa

 Elissa Slater (Reilly), 27 

Hometown: Concord, N.C. 

Current City: Kannapolis, N.C. 


I’ve put this one off as long as possible, and I’d still rather not endure it. 

Why oh why does Grodner and her minions think we need to have a Reilly family member every season? It’s bad enough that we’ve had Rachel for two full seasons, plus other appearances AND Amazing Race. Not to mention her Skype-loving husband. It’s disgusting, and I feel dirty whenever I see any of them. 

Now I must admit that a relative is a bit of a step better than a returning player. I do want all newbies, and technically this horrific human is in that category. But but but...I still don’t have to like it.

So here we go. Five seconds in my eardrums break. She has the Reilly laugh. In fact, her laugh goes beyond that ugly caterwaul. Oh Lord, what have I done to cause me this pain and suffering?

It’s not just her laugh. Even her talking voice is more annoying than her sister...but it’s clear they’re sisters. The same sort of enunciation, and the same attempt to hide her southern drawl.

She says she isn’t going to tell the house that she’s Rachel’s sister, but anybody with any knowledge of the show is going to immediately jump on it. Plus, isn’t she in the TV wedding?

The plan is to play a better social game than Rachel, which really shouldn’t be too tough. Thankfully, she also wants to be “more demure”. Those of us disgusted by that family is so grateful.

The vast majority of this interview is based around Rachel, and what she will do differently and similar to her. She believes her yoga regime will be a huge asset to her in the endurance competitions, and I can’t argue with that. 

Somehow, I made it through the entire interview. I now need a stiff, stiff drink...and a shower. Sadly, if she does refrain from her sister’s over-the-top antics, we’re going to be stuck with a Reilly up to the very end...although she may need some help here and there from Grodner.

Give Elissa a chance we haven't even seen her play the game.
Rachel does have fans and we love her and support her!

You got further then I did my friend. I was only able to make it through about 15 second of that interview before my head felt like it was going to explode and had to shut it down. It was all there, the mannerisms, the speech patterns, even the facial expressions, reminded me of the red headed menace.

This has to be Grodners revenge for all the bitching we do about her.

With any luck the other house guests will take one look at her and say not just hell no but "HELL NO!!!!!" And evict her at the first opportunity. Grodners meddling be damned.

Ah, donie, the "jealousy" angle.

Here's the deal, and I hope you take what I say seriously. That's great that you are her fan, and that you're rooting for her sister. I hope for your sake she entertains you throughout the summer.

Personally, I don't care that she won. I didn't like her in the beginning, and I'd have no credibility to suddenly say she is an angelic figure just because she won. That's fantastic on her part. But she's not the type of person that I'm attracted to - physically, culturally, mentally, etc.

And that's fine that we have differing opinions. Neither of us are wrong. Regardless of who reads this site, I'm going to state my opinions of everybody, and I guarantee at some point every single person in the house will be criticized. If that's a problem, there are plenty of other sites you can read. I hope that's not the case, though.

If anyone has info about this I am curious so let me know if I am wrong. Elyssa just claimed she is an 'advanced' yoga instructor. Yet claimibg she is a nutritionist too. Registered? certified? or nutritionist because she knows and shares how ro eat? 'Advanced' yoga instructor? Does she make things up and exaggerate like her sister too? She has her own website. No class schedule and 3 pictures. In one pic she has her foot on her knee (top of building). This is a huge nono that any person beginning yoga knows- so not too smart to post. I thought she looked likes gymnist and then read and that was confirmed. Her page is so basic - tips like put your hair up and don't wear a loose shirt. Beginning novice and someone who does not have a brain tips. Nothing to show her advanced status in any way. Instructors that are advanced have much more involved pages and actual accomplishment. Her page seems thrown together with no evidence to back it up. I am in the fitness industry and when I look up fellow instructors their pages are much more detailed with experience, schedules, accomplishments, comments from students- a lot more. Perhaps she just became certified- or started to ? But no one claiming to be an advanced instructor would have a pic of their foot on their knee. And she says '9 years ago' she began - at 18- after 9 years she doesn't have basic form down? I read somewhere in a blog trying to see is she is for real- that she has a class full of men. All advanced men? Maybe but unlikely. I will say she is far less annoying than Rachel

PS I actually am starting to like Elyssa. She is not annoying like her sister or vindictive or crazy either, so far. The villain this season is 'Arian Aaryn'. She is REALLY MEAN and has an ugly soul! Amazing how ugly a pretty girl on the outside can be! Total racist and tried to equate her racist comments to being called a Barbie. Last I check 'Barbie Doll' was not a race! It blows me away that she really cannot see how awful and wrong she is- she really believes it is everyone else!! Delusional!
