Rachel-Jacob Relationship

General Information

Isberry
Intimacy Level: Enemies (Rachel's side)
One-sided crush (Jacob's side)
Dating Status: Never Dated

The Rachel-Jacob Relationship, commonly known as Racob, Jachel, and Isberry, consists of Rachel Berry's disdain towards Jacob Ben Israel and his unrequited love, obsession, and sexual feelings towards her.

Jacob is extremely physically attracted to Rachel, although in multiple events she bluntly tells him she's not interested, and never will be. In his desperation to satisfy his sexual desires for her, he once sinks so low as to blackmail her into showing him her bra, threatening to post a less-than-pleasant review of her performance in the school play if she didn't co-operate. Jacob is often very stalkerish towards her, and Rachel feels grossed out by this affection.

Overview

Jacob is sexually attracted to Rachel and has referred to her on multiple occasions as being, "the hottest girl in the school." It's obvious that Rachel does not reciprocate the feelings because she is blatantly disgusted with his inappropriate behavior and him in general. Sadly, this doesn't deter him from trying to win her approval or, at the very least, have some sort of sexual gratification (in the form of her more intimate clothing). He joined New Directions to fill the twelve member requirement, but tells Finn that it was only to get into Rachel's pants. He also admires Rachel's voice.

Later, in Britney/Brittany, the second episode of Season Two, when Rachel wears her Britney Spears outfit, he offers Finn his own house and says he would kill his own parents to have her.

There are technically no episodes promoting them as a couple, but Jacob pursues Rachel most notably in Showmance, Acafellas, Throwdown, Sectionals, and Britney/Brittany. She has always rejected him, and it is a completely one-sided relationship (from Jacob's side).
