22-year-old reality show star Aaryn Gries clearly forgot that big brother is always watching…
With the Trayvon Martin case in full swing and people still shaking their head at the statements of ex-celeb cook Paula Deen, it’s safe to say racial sensitivity is at it’s summer’s peak. That being said, let’s toss couple more names into this prejudice gumbo. On Sunday night, Aaryn Gries, star of the hit reality show Big Brother was outed as a resident racist. Not sure how much damage it will do in the long run, but the effects are already being felt, as Gries has already lost her modeling contract.

The Big Brother house just gets worse and worse. The show on Sunday finally revealed its racist houseguest as Aaryn Gries, 22, whose inappropriate comments were caught on the show’s 24/7 live feeds. This season’s Big Brother house has received plenty of negative publicity after videos of the contestants making racist and homophobic comments went viral last week. At one point during Sunday’s show, an entire montage was devoted to Gries’s slurs, including when she said castmate Helen Kim should go in the kitchen and “make some rice,” and also addressing gay housemate Andy as “that queer.” Gries has been dropped from her modeling contract. Another contestant, GinaMarie Zimmerman, lost her job last week due to racist remarks she made that were caught on the feeds.
