One thing that hasn't changed is how incredibly narcissistic and vain she is. Before becoming a self-proclaimed ~Swamp Queen~, Rachel spent her youth parading around graveyards and camwhoring as a pseudo model on Myspace (now deleted).
With Rachel’s new found Youtube "fame" among the socially inept, 12 year olds, her ego and entitlement only became worse. She soon realized that she could obtain free products from companies instead of paying for them. The realization came when she eyed an overpriced package of press-on blood decals at a Halloween store. She ran home to email the company and shamelessly beg them to send her the decals for free, in exchange for a review. Rachel has been under the impression that she no longer has to pay for ANYTHING anymore and has expected companies to send her free products ever since. She has also made it obvious that she's not above reviewing shady companies to get what she wants.
About a month ago, Rachel ordered a new pair of UNIF Hellraisers to replace the pair she had worn out. When she received them, she started complaining about the terrible quality and uploaded a 15 minute rant video. The shoes she received were made out of an entirely different material and not only had the spikes started falling out, the shoe was also covered in dry glue. Rachel believed that UNIF had cut down on the quality, though still charging the same price, because they couldn't keep up with the demand. Several of her subscribers claimed that their Hellraisers had also fallen apart and that UNIF had blatantly ignored their complaints. She deleted the video an hour later after the company bribed her with a new pair and begged her to take it down. It was obvious that UNIF didn't want bad press from Rachel because of her large following. Being the sellout that she is, she uploaded a new video defending them.
Unfortunately, the free products weren't enough to satisfy her greed and she began using her "Swamp Family" for profit. She purchased a PO BOX with the obvious intention of receiving presents. After seeing the massive amounts of gifts that her subscribers were willing to send her, she started manipulating them to send even more.
Rachel would drop several hints about certain items that she wanted in hopes that her Swamp Family would catch on and send them to her. And it worked. She obnoxiously tweeted a daily countdown, the entire week before her 27th birthday, attempting to milk extra gifts out of her worshipping cult followers.
With all of the love and admiration they show their Swamp Queen, you would expect Rachel to express her gratitude and be more than willing to give back to them. The reality is that her appreciation for her Swamp Family isn't even worth a 45 cent stamp and envelope to send them a thank you letter. Rachel only cares about the income that their views provide and the attention she gets from having a large following. Further proving how little she cares about them, she showed up half an hour late to her own meet up.
Rachel is an advocate and role model for other special snowflakes who also suffer from crippling anxiety. They find inspiration in Rachel having enough courage to leave her bedroom to film vlogs in Chick-Fil-A's parking lot. She is actively boycotting Forever 21 after the horrible prejudice she experienced while having an anxiety attack in the dressing room. Additionally, Meyer is also pursuing a lawsuit against the franchise for the trauma and embarrassment they have caused her. Sephora and Urban Outfitters are rumored to be included in these claims. Please pray for her as she tries to cope during this difficult time.
