Preston picks PJ instead of evil Rachel, who will star in For Love or Money 4.
Calling the producers and crying apparently worked for Rachel Veltri, as she will star in For Love or Money 4, it was revealed during the third season finale last night. Rachel was first rejected by Preston in favor of P.J. Spillman, who chose Preston over her mystery check. Rachel, however, says she, too, would have given up her $1 million check for Preston had he chosen her. “I was really going to pick him. They didn’t show it but I had real feelings for him. They cast me as the evil character. The evil character can’t be a real person, can’t have a heart,” she tells the Chicago Sun-Times. Still, she re-upped for a new season. “When they offered me the chance to do it again I said ‘why not, my head is already messed up enough.'”
