Aaryn Gries: Evicted From Big Brother, GRILLED By Julie Chen on Racist Comments

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Aaryn Gries was finally evicted from the Big Brother house Thursday night, and was promptly grilled by Julie Chen about her comments this summer.

Her explanation, in abridged form?

She's not racist, she's just Texan!

Aaryn Gries, of course, mocked Asians, African-Americans AND homosexuals this season. Frequently, and often seeming to take pleasure in doing so.

She had to know the reckoning was coming, but when she said "I did not mean to ever come off as racist," well, the audience laughed in her face.

And booed. A lot.

The longer explanation: "In Texas, we say things. Sometimes we joke and we don't mean it. I feel how bad it is being seen and how I've come across to people."

How bad it is being seen? Is she for real?

"I don't want to seem like that kind of person. That was not meant to be serious and if I said those things, I feel horrible for that. I regret that," she added.

Among her (many) choice lines: Telling an Asian cast member to "go make rice," and later quipping, "I probably look like a squinty Asian right now."

Gries also said "no one's going to vote for whoever that queer puts up" while addressing gay housemate Andy Herren, and made other racist comments.

Still, Aaryn told host Chen that she doesn't remember ever making a racist comment in the house, adding, "I apologize to anyone I offended for that."

Julie, at that point, read off a list of some of the offensive comments she made, leaving Aaryn frozen in her seat, and it was pretty awesome.

Not awesome that such a person exists, of course. That part is still incredibly depressing and a bad sign for society. But awesome that Julie called her out.

Gries, who will stay sequestered from the outside world in the jury house until the show ends next month, still has no idea her modeling agency fired her.

Enjoy the rest of your unemployed life.


I hope this piece of shit never gets another job. Can you imagine someone like her in a position of power in a company? It's people like her that show why affirmative-action is still needed. And if she says this shit while hooked up to microphone- imagine what she says at home?? Her father is a disgusting racist also- his Facebook page is filled with racist rants. What a disgusting family the Gries family is. Burn in hell.


@Pat lol, who knows, perhaps her parents intentionally spelled her name that way, because "hey, they are Texans". (I do know Texans who think nothing like this young woman)


I think they misspelled her name (Aaryn) it should have been spelled
A r y a n.

@ Pat

Yes, they intentionally spelled her name like this. Her Father's facebook page (George Gries - a raccoon is the picture) is FILLED with racist bullshit. This family might as well join the Klan... if they haven't already.


Now hopefully she'll get a taste of her own medicine.


FINALLY...Aaryn is evicted from Big Bother!!!!! BB (and CBS) took FOREVER in evicting Aaryn's clueless and stupid ass. During her exit interview (or whatever), Aaryn came off looking even more stupid. And the interview itself was one of the most stupidest interviews that I've ever seen in my whole and entire life. Bottom Line: Aaryn is nothing but disrespectful and snot-nosed T-R-A-S-H...THROUGH AND THROUGH!!!!!


And after grilling Gries, with record breaking ratings, Julie Chen and her husband CBS president and CEO Leslie Moonves laughed all the way to the bank. They made millions of dollars in advertising revenues off of Aaryn Gries Public racism and what will be her public undoing once she leaves the show. The producers of the show yell at the cast members of Bug Brother if they forget to wear a mic for 2 seconds. But telling them to stop using the N word or make racist or homophobic comments to fellow cast members? They should ave put a stop to it because it was the right thing to do at the time it happened, not months later. Instead she choise to let millions of Viewers be offended. And out of the millions they make they pay the cast $1000 a week. Aaryn Gries is who she is- but don't let Julie Chen fool you. She will do anything for money, and hurt viewers and cast members while acting like a self rightous princes. And at night she sits around laughing and counting all the money. Sp who is the truly evil one here?

@ T Lopez

I hear ya'...and I agree!!!!! I especially agree about your comments regarding that manipulative-ass ice-princess BITCH Julie Chen. Yeah, man...Julie Chen is NO ANGEL. T., this is why I quit watching The Talk after the 1st Season a few years ago...supposedly, ice-princess Julie runs and rules The Talk with an iron fist. Julie bullied and strong-armed her spineless CBS President and CEO hubby Les into firing BOTH Holly Robinson-Peete and (especially!!!!!) Leah Remini because both Holly and (especially) Leah refused to bow down to that fake-ass Julie. As for those BB producers...those so-called producers are nothing but manipulative and ratings-hungry JACKASSES. And those crew members are no better...the crew members (off and on) leer and eyeball the BB female contestants like fresh meat (or whatever). T., as far as I'm concerned, CBS REALLY stands for Conniving Backstabbing Spineless. Period. The absolute pits!!!!!


Just another piece of trash, looking for her 15 minutes of fame....


Do not lump texas into ur racist ass comments

@ Mia

I know. The more she talked the deeper she went under like quicksand.


I think Julie Chen & CBS carried out the interview very well. Julie did not attack her on a personal level, but was stating true things that happened in the house and in the game which had to be addressed. CBS did not even air half of the comments Aaryn Gries made. Even leading up to her eviction, Aaryn made derogatory remarks making fun of Asians, once again - and said "gorillas" mowed her lawn back home. These are just a FEW of the things that were mentioned throughout the season. She has also called Candice Aunt Jemima when cooking pancakes. And when Helen got evicted she said that she can't eat fried rice anymore because she evicted the only Asian. It goes on and on. I'm fully aware Amanda Zuckerman and a few other houseguests have also made derogatory remarks, and I can only hope they are also addressed by the end of the game. And just FYI, I am a 26 year old white male who was born and raised in Texas. And for Aaryn to blame her "Texas" background as an excuse is just pathetic, and well just that...a sorry excuse. Don't throw us Texans under the bus for what kind of a human being you are, Aaryn. Beauty only goes so far, ugly is clean to the bone. For those that feel bad for her due to her exit interview - obviously Aaryn will be upset and apologize. If you're in that seat, what else are you supposed to do? But the truth is, it wasn't just the beginning of the season where she made those comments. It was throughout the entire season. Only partially of what was aired. Good luck to you Aaryn in the future. Hopefully you've learned a valuable life lesson and see things differently now.

@ Dylan

Dylan...dude, after reading your post, I gotta say...I think that you're a REAL COOL DUDE!!!!! Dylan, I applaud and admire your honesty. I just wanted to let you know that. Take care, bro. Peace.


Don't blame Texas for YOUR racism, Aaryn! I grew up in Texas and am not racist in the least. I would NEVER say any of the things Aaryn, GM, Spencer, and Amanda(who is the worst offender by FAR) have said. Inexcusable and completely despicable.
