UPDATED: Modeling agency drops 22-year-old Texan who made racist comments on Big Brother
She said some awful things.
[UPDATE: Zephyr Talent, an Austin modeling agency, has dumped Aaryn Gries, 22, a Texas State University student, from her contract, after the Big Brother contestant made numerous racially and sexually discriminatory comments about others in the house.
The company posted on its Facebook page: "Aaryn, season 15 cast member of Big Brother, revealed prejudices and other beliefs that we (Zephyr Talent) do not condone. We certainly find the statements made by Aaryn on the live Internet feed to be offensive. Any views or opinions expressed in personal commentary by Aaryn, either on any live feed from the House or during the broadcast, are hers alone and do not represent the views or opinions of Zephyr Talent. Upon much consideration, we have decided to release Aaryn from her contract with Zephyr Talent."]
Aaryn Gries, 22, a Texas State University student, is one of several house guests to have discriminatory statements aired on the show's live 24-hour Internet feed.
Aaryn said of Andy Herren, who is gay: “No one’s gonna vote for whoever that queer puts up.” She also suggested he’d win the Most Valuable Player vote from the fans because “people love the queers.”
Aaryn said about Houston resident Candice Stewart, 29, who is black, “be careful what you say in the dark; you might not be able to see that (expletive).”
Aaryn said of Helen Kim, who is Asian, “Shut up. Go make some (expletive) rice.”
The reality show, which airs edited shows Sundays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays, locks 16 contestants in a house for 90 days. Each week a contestant is eliminated through a variety of competitions and votes.
Fans can view the house guests 24 hours a day by subscribing to a live feed on the CBS Web site.
There is no rule on the show that contestants are forbidden from making derogatory statements.
It is unclear if any of the epithets will be shown on the broadcast, which edits the live feeds down to 60 minutes per broadcast.
Aaryn isn't the only person making derogatory comments. Read what other houseguests have said on Reality Blurred.
