Rachel was Ever Bloom's best friend when she lived in Eugene, Oregon. She was a fellow cheerleader and part of the popular crowd, along with Ever.
After Ever's accident, she grew distant from Ever and closer to her then boyfriend Brandon. Later, Riley Bloom informs Ever that she started dating Brandon, and they'd been going out for five months. After their homecoming dance, Riley revealed that they almost had sex, until Brandon killed the mood by doing something "extremely embarrassing."
