gameplay. He's always said he will. As such a big fan of the game, I think he respects it too much to vote personally. He even told Porsche yesterday that he will vote for whoever evicts him if he feels they played better. He said that in response to her saying she'd never vote for the person who evicted her.
He has also said in his private monologues that if Rachel makes it to F2, she will deserve to win and he'll vote for her. After Porsche won F4 POV, he told Jordan he might vote for her if she also wins F3 HOH, but if Rachel wins, that's more impressive than F4 POV, and would mean she saved Porsche at both F5 and F3 - more than countering Porsche saving her at F4. I can't see Adam voting for Porsche against Rachel under this scenario.
So I'm 99% sure Rachel gets at least 4 votes against Porsche if she wins F3. Much less confident in any of the "mean girls" not voting personally.
Of course, Rachel could easily lose F3 HOH. Part 3 is a crapshoot and an embarrassment to the game, imo.
As for big moves, Rachel's were saving herself and getting Keith, Dominic and Kalia evicted, as well as outplaying Shelly, playing a huge role in exposing her duplicity. She went from 5th wheel in JJ's alliance to 3rd, all due to Shelly trying to get Rachel booted from the alliance and failing miserably. Exhibit A being her confronting Rachel in HOH after Jeff won, trying to bait Rachel into a fight. Rachel just sat there calmly, not saying anything. Jeff was very impressed with Rachel after that and irritated with Shelly.
Also, Rachel winning 2 of those first 3 HOHs was critical for her and her alliance. The newbies had an 8-5 numbers advantage at the start, with Brenchel far and away their top target.
You can argue Porsche made a bigger pair of moves by being instrumental in getting JJ out, but Rachel collectively did a lot more to impact the game. She also gave Porsche the Golden Key safety.
