Big Brother 15: Aaryn and Gina Marie Mock Candice, More Racist Attacks (VIDEO) (UPDATED)

After Nick was evicted from the Big Brother house last night, all hell broke loose as Aaryn and GinaMarie attacked Candice, a black contestant, using racial slurs.

Aaryn, who has been continually, and casually using slurs against the houseguests, taunted Candice with a faux urban accent, “Whatchu gon do gurrl … class girl? Where’s yo class?”

As Candice and Aaryn got into it, GinaMarie butted in, saying, “You want the black to come out?”

Housemate, Howard, who is also black, pulled Candice into another room and begged her not to fight with the racist housemates. He didn’t convince her.

The fight started over a prank Aaryn pulled on Candice–flipping over her mattress.

About his blindside, which he didn’t really see coming, and the girls (Helen, Elissa and Candice) masterminding the coup, Nick said:

That does not surprise me at all. In fact, there was a point in time where I told McCrae that the house should separate into threes: the Blonde-tourage should go on one side with me and Jeremy, McCrae, Amanda and those three [girls] would be a group and then Spencer, Howard, Andy and Judd would be the third group. I don’t put it past them, they’re smart women, so it doesn’t surprise me.

And on the racism inside the house, Nick said:

It’s news to me. I was not privy to a lot of those conversations, I wouldn’t partake in those kinds of conversations outside the Big Brother house, but I know outside the house, the best way to absolutely drop that conversation is to go radio silent. And for the most part, I was radio silent in the house, but when those conversations came up, I was really silent.

UPDATE: Amanda confronts Aaryn with the info that the producers have been editing her as a racist. Aaryn doesn’t believe it, or believe that she’s a racist.

By the way…Candice and Howard wound up sleeping on the floor in the Have-Not room.

  • James G

    This whole ordeal is unfortunate. Watching Howard after it all was truly heartbreaking. Aaryn is a cold hearted bitch who deserves what will come to her outside of the house.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    This isn’t a scripted show, so why are racist comments allowed? In the name of ‘entertainment’? Are there no censors? WTF is going on?

  • girlygirl

    Why is Aaryn still on this show? CBS should have booted her off

  • tripp_ncwy

    You could truly hear the heartbreak in Howard’s voice and in his eyes. These comments are really taking a bigger toll on him than he would ever show to those girls.

  • Happyhexer

    My jaw literally (and I do mean LITERALLY) dropped open when I read the first sentence of this post. Really? Ughh. So scary that people still think and act like this. And yes, heartbreaking.

  • Tinawina

    Holy crap. So I just read elsewhere that the girl flipped the mattress because “black people slept on it”. Is that true? Oh my God.

    So they’ve made it known to this girl that they are bullying her in part because she is black? That is incredible to me. This seems so… Middle school, in addition to just being gross. I’m used to people being that nasty when you are all kids, but these are supposedly adults. Wow.

    CBS is just going to let them do it?

  • Reflects On Life

    They followed that up with claiming there were crabs in her bed.

    The 18th century called: they want their racists back.

  • shenanigan

    Maybe this is a wake-up call to some of us who live in a bubble. I didn’t think people would dare to talk like that or thought like that. It is frightening but in every society, there are always people who will oppress. The question is, how do we handle it? The parents of those girls should be very frightened. Their careers are over.

  • James

    She needs to go, there is a huge difference in getting under someone’s skin with game play and being the bigot that Aaryn is.

  • önder

    What is this

  • Tinawina

    Wow. I’ve never watched this show. It seems like making the contestants at the receiving end of this live under those kinds of conditions is very cruel. Are people incredibly nasty to each other like this every year? Is this normal for the show? Did the contestants of color (and gay contestants) know they were signing up for this possibility?

  • James

    I would pay money to see the reaction on Aaryn’s face when she finds out she was fired by the modeling agency that she was with and she realizes that nobody will ever hire her again.

  • hellomusicgirl

    When this whole thing started with the comments in the house I thought it was unfortunate but obviously made for compelling tv. Honestly it’s kind of a sad microcosm of our country. I felt like it might be helpful for people to watch and see and hopefully learn from the comments and actions of Aaryn, GM and the others.

    I think I’ve changed my mind. I just watched that video posted and started crying. It’s not right. It’s not even a little bit right to have this going on. It’s wrong to ask the others to stay in this house but especially Candice and Howard in what happened here. Yes, they have free will and can leave but they also signed up for a game. They didn’t sign up for this kind of harassment. It’s wrong. I hope CBS has the balls to do something about it.

  • stu

    This is planned if it’s not it’s making CBS a happy camper. People want to see reality TV and it’s not racist. It’s real daily life. At work, play or whatever.

  • stu

    The Blacks and Asians should swing back by saying cracker, trailer trash, It’s the Whites VS Black VS Yellows… This is America folks! Where’s the spics?

  • stu

    It goes on in a regular basis. All race are racists. Behind close doors or in public.

  • stu

    REALITY

  • pj

    I haven’t been watching, and I’m glad I haven’t. Last year, Ian won. He played a good game, even getting evil Dr. Will. Didn’t resort to racism or intimidation. This is over the top. It’s not entertaining. It is disgusting.

    One of my favorite players, Janelle, tweeted this. I think it is pretty on the mark:

    I want the Moving Company exposed! #Candice for #BBMVP #BB15 #BigBrother Let’s vote like crazy so she can go after the guys! #GoCandice

    Hey Aaryn, it’s like….go cut some holes in a white sheet. #BB15 #BigBrother #sadbuttrue

  • hellomusicgirl

    My grandma has a lovely expression that I would like to share with you — If you lay down with dogs, you get up with fleas.

  • stu

    She’s a star. She represents America. Everyone is a racists to some degree. Cops profile, they see blacks and hispanics as up to no good. Even if you think all Asians are geeky smart sneeky that’s being racist. Add in all the half breeds in America you have a explosive cocktail.

  • pj

    How is it not racist? Even if it’s real? Racism is real. Obviously.

  • girlygirl

    How does it being real daily life make it not racist????

    It is very much still racist

  • Tinawina

    I really felt for him. I knew exactly what he was saying. He COULD NOT show any anger at those girls, he COULD NOT lose his temper no matter how hard it was. He had watch them abuse Candice and suck it up, because he knows what happens if he explodes, no matter how much his instinct is to protect her. The second he gets angry, he’s the threat. He was begging Candice to play along for his sake, while all Candice wanted to do was stand up for herself understandably… that was not fun to watch at all. That was real, and it was painful. I was tearing up watching that video. That may sound like hyperbole but it hit too close to home for me.

  • Soe

    Aryan is better suited to a cable-trash reality show.

    Like Bad Girl’s Club or Real World 13899.

  • http://www.fatladysings.us/ TFLS

    Why is this considered entertainment? Thirty years ago people who spoke like this in a public forum would be ostracized. And CBS has made this a public forum. They’ve practically tied a bow around it and added a brass band begging people to look. Of course people say this crap in private. I’ve thrown people out of my home for mistaking my skin tone as determinative of my viewpoint. If I don’t want to hear it in private – I certainly don’t want to endure hearing it on TV. It’s NOT entertaining. It just makes me sick.

  • pj

    I have watched it off an on. Yes, they are mean to each other, but I”ve never seen anything like what is being described here. Lots of backstabbing and game play, but never like this. I haven’t watched every season, though.

    ETA: One guy got kicked off previously for threatening another player. Not sure why they are letting this go on…

  • stu

    Racist is in the eye of the beholder. Blacks can get away of being a racist more so than whites. Blacks can call whites crackers and other obscene things and it’s ho hum. Whites will be tar and feather. Chris Rocks and other black comedians can get away with lot’s more vulger stuff. Example: African American for blacks, Asians for Orientals. It’s racists to use blacks and oriental. How about whites, should we use Russian American? Belguim Americans?

  • abbysee

    Ugh!

  • pj

    Actually, anyone targeted for the color of their skin or their ethnicity is experiencing racism. So… it is racist.

  • standtotheright

    Plenty of people use Causcasian to refer to those of European ancestry, so I don’t get your point.

    And the idea that “cracker” has anywhere near the negative connotations that some of the slurs in question do is ludicrous.

  • Miss Blue

    Oh please. It is most certainly racist. Which, in case you haven’t noticed, exists in real daily like. Does not make it right or acceptable.

    Frankly, the only way it will ever stop is if these bigots are put in their place, in public, loudly.

  • stu

    or any body part. So, everyone is a racist to some degree.

  • stu

    Yes, it’s racist. Everyone is a racist to some degree. Even if you are thinking it and not saying it.

  • Miss Blue

    Really? REALLY? Not in my house. Not in my neighborhood, not amongst my friends, not in my family, not at my workplace.

    I don’t know where you live but I seriously hope I never end up there.

  • http://www.mjsbigblog.com/ mjsbigblog

    At least Aaryn will get her comeuppance when she leaves the house and finds out she’s lost her contracts and jobs and that America hates her. Ditto GinaMarie

    Who would even hire either of them at this point.

  • pj

    You assume other people’s thoughts? Everyone isn’t anything.

  • abbysee

    I just watched that video and I had the same reaction. It’s a microcosm of what black men have to endure in the workplace. They can’t have normal male reactions or they become portrayed as thugs and suspects, when all they are having is ordinary human responses to ill treatment. Hell yeah it hit home.

  • pj

    I hope you are right.

  • Yellowdude

    You must be white and wear rose colored glasses? I am yellow and live in the real world. You can call me mellow yellow, Asian, Korean, I’m not offended.

  • Matty Minkus

    Dr. Will was not on last season. The prior bb contestants on were Mike Boogie, Janelle, Dan Gheesling and Britney.

  • pj

    Oh, i meant mike boogie. They are interchangeable to me. lol

  • jan

    I hope you’re right too – and she really looks at herself and learns – doubt that will happen though – someone somewhere will hire the pretty girl who is ugly inside

  • Yellowdude

    Trust me this kind of stuff goes on. I’m not shock by this BB stuff. I’m of Korean ancestry, born here in the USA. 2 generation. Mom and dad born here. Just a month ago, some guy at a store parking lot, told me to go back to China gook. Sometimes, people look shock that I speak English with no accent. WOW! I was born here, surprise.

  • Madilo

    This !!! What are they waiting for ?

  • Yellowdude

    Trust me there’s more Aaryn in America than meets the eye. Sad but true. Sometimes action or with words. I’m Oriental, yes, I’m not offended. You can say Asian, if Oriental feels wrong. LOL!

    Anyway, I was at this dept store a few years ago and brought some items to the cashier to check out. She told me this lane is closed. I walked away and turned around about 10 seconds later, she was checking out another customer. Hmmm.

  • girlygirl

    Of course it goes on. But that doesn’t mean it should be tolerated.

  • pj

    Just because it goes on doesn’t mean it should be condoned.

  • Madilo

    Why is that girl still in the show really, how many times is she gonna do her racist comments ?

  • pj

    I am kinda surprised the producers haven’t warned her. I mean really.

  • Yellowdude

    Speaking of J.Lin. Even Asian girls who only exclusively date white guys are racists. This video is funny. Thank god for J.Lin. LOL http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y5GVMWl2Z-Y

  • No Thanks

    I’m sure there is a job at Fox News waiting for her.

    ETA: Or a Hooters.

  • pj

    Sad but I think she’ll find something in the entertainment business. Hopefully, just for 15 minutes.

  • Yellowdude

    Police profiling is a type of racism? Don’t you think so? It’s condoned by law enforcement.

  • Yellowdude

    Yes, I’m singing Twisted Sister’s ‘Im not gonna take it” LOL!

  • Yellowdude

    Oh, when she said go make some rice, I was not offended. I chuckled. She stereotyped. It may be wrong, but it’s funny. You have to laugh at yourself and people who make those comments. That’s a lot of people that thinks Asians (It’s those Vietnamese) that still eat dogs and cat. It’s soooo political correctness these days. That people and companies are afraid to say or use Christmas.

  • pj

    I said it shouldn’t be condoned, not that it isn’t by some.

  • Mateja Praznik

    The question is, is she breaking Big Brother’s rules? If no, they can’t just throw her out. Big Brother is a reality show with rules.

    It’s Big Brother. I’m surprised people are so upset about bad behavior. Seriously, highly educated, well mannered people usually don’t sign up for Big Brother. Controversial characters make this show interesting for the viewers.

  • chillj

    The producers and CBS will not stop unless and until advertisers pull out or ratings drop. Advertisers need to feel it – and they should.

  • Tinawina

    Yeah that kind of thing happens, I’m used to that. I am really surprised that a bunch of adults who know they are being televised feel free to say things like “go make some rice” or “welfare is n***a insurance” without expecting any backlash. I’m truly shocked they feel perfectly empowered to act this way. Trashing the girl’s bed because “black people slept on it”??!!! I’m used to my racists being more passive aggressive when under public scrutiny. LOL. And this is a show where the public votes! WTF!

  • Yellowdude

    If it’s condoned or turn the blind eye such by ‘some’ as groups or law. It’s pretty sad.

  • No Thanks

    I think with reality shows, the only thing that gets you kicked off is physical violence. Or if you’re having legal trouble and have a warrant out for your arrest.

    If being a bitch, racist and/or asshole was grounds, then there would be no reality TV.

  • Reflects On Life

    Yep, the term “Caucasian” has been hijacked to mean “European ancestry”. Plenty of people of Middle Eastern and South Asian ancestry are also Caucasian.

  • abbysee

    Yep, that old Springsteen is certainly racist, and Stevie Wonder too, he used the term yellow man too. Any. Context is everything! Chris Rock is not gonna go stalking white people and shoot them, Bruce isn’t going to deny someone their civil rights. Historically, you are so off base about racism it’s sad. When black folk in America have the right to enslave an entire population, and then discriminate against them legally for generations, or put their own citizens in internment camps, then you can talk to me about how racist we all are behind closed doors. That’s bullshit. It’s also insulting to anyone who has never used a racial slur, and indeed won’t fall for this old bait and switch crap people use to cover their racism!

  • vd88

    Not that I condone any of this, but at least there showing something REAL on reality tv. Yes I actually teared up watching Candice and Howard talk afterwards but it’s kind of compelling to watch as a viewer. It’s not right but it gives more a real outlook to how ppl truly are in this world instead of something made up for television.

  • Yellowdude

    I never have watched this show before. But this makes it interesting for viewing. Some poeple don’t think before they open their mouths. It’s their real personality. Just like people (young adults) post pictures or comments on their social accounts that haunts them down the road.

    “I’m used to my racists being more passive aggressive when under public scrutiny.” LOL! Same here, but WTF! LOL!

  • Tinawina

    I have to admit I’m looking forward to the aftermath.

    Still, she’ll get hired by someone. But she probably got herself shut out of anything remotely mainsteam. Her options will be severely limited. Hopefully the other one will suffer the same fate.

  • flog gnaw

    Lmao both Aaryn and Gina Marie are nasty ass hoes and once they’re off the show, they’re going to get their sh*t rocked.

  • pj

    You’d think they would have ground rules. I mean, they get forced to eat slop etc. Is it too much to ask?

  • flog gnaw

    Or a corner.

  • Yellowdude

    Can We All Just Get Along?

    – Rodney King

  • pj

    I have watched casually in the past and it was plenty interesting without this…

  • Reflects On Life

    Me too, Candice’s crying broke my heart, and Howard’s pleas to her show just want kind of tradeoffs PoCs make every day just to get by IRL. I appreciate Candice’s resolve to treat it as just gameplay.
    They’ve shown racism on BB UK and it’s internationally popular because so many ppl feel vindicated by identifying with the victim.
    Maybe that’s what BB US is going after. It’s certainly got ppl talking and improving their ratings. This show is almost like a living breating NatGeo expose on American racism.

  • pj

    How is it getting along if you are targeted?

  • Incipit

    “I am kinda surprised the producers haven’t warned her. I mean really.”

    Seems to be against the rules? I mean, the show has some rule against it? They have no rule against someone creating a hostile work environment, or against bigotry, or harassment, or like that. Just don’t spoil their plot.

    But hey – wanna bet if she gets off the show and finds out her butt is fired, she sues the show because they encouraged her to ramp up the racism? They deserve each other, Really.

    IMO.

  • chillj

    (I always wonder why someone on that show doesn’t get claustrophobia, but I am off track. ) Much of reality television is just part of a devolving conversation; it’s trashy. Most reality tv is trashy. The people are nasty. They are horrible people; I think that is why they get watched.

    CBS says it is prompting a “conversation.” Bullsh**. If enough people even wrote the network a nasty letter, the show would be off.

  • ptebwwong

    BB does not pull contestants off the show unless it’s physical violence. For example, in S2 they disqualified & pulled a contestant for actually putting a knife to another contestant’s throat.

  • chillj

    So, they pull them only for major felonies?

  • chillj

    The problem is that people on these shows are not representative of the American public. On line polls don’t even work because they are not representative. Commenters/posters on the Internet aren’t representative. Showing these people, giving them a forum, skews the conversation and lets people like the contestants feel they are the norm. These shows skew perceptions.

  • usedtobelucy

    I’m getting so tired of hearing people spout this nonsense.

    Whites have the privilege. Thus their language is a tool of oppression.

    Blacks have *zero* privilege and power in America, *still* — and, yes, I know we have a black president. So their words are puny nothings.

    The reason these white idiots can sit around on television and say this stuff comfortably is because they *know* that they are in the position of power and privilege and that that makes it okay. The exact same reason that straight people can sit around and make disparaging comments about the “homosexual lifestyle.” When you have the power, you know — even if you’re too stupid to really be conscious of it — that your words are essentially invincible, *and* help perpetuate the status quo in which you;’re up and they’re down.

    I’m also tired of so many people on this list and elsewhere saying that white racism and homophobia are over so there’s no need to be strident any more. The hell there isn’t.

  • ptebwwong

    Basically, yes. There were 2 other disqualified contestants in the history of the show. One contestant basically assaulted another contestant. The other did property destruction concerning the show (cameras, equipment, etc.), bad-mouthing the producers, & refusing to do tasks required in the game.

  • YaoMingMing

    Looks like CBS found a hit ingredient in Racists people. Racism going strong equals more drama equals ratings hit. Stay tune for next week’s racist encounter with more racists comments.

  • wayne strong

    I wonder if any of it is strategy. Make them lose their tempers and turn them into the angry black folks that everyone wants out.

  • vd88

    Right, I mean they can show them lie, cheat, and fight over stupid things but when a real issue like racism comes up it’s far more interesting to watch, hate to say it. There’s a video of Howard breaking down and crying after this, stuff like this never gets shown on tv and reality tv mind you. I think ppl need to see stuff like this and more become more aware of how ppl truly act.

  • No Thanks

    I think the word you are looking for is BIGOT. Yes, people of all races can be a bigot and display intolerance towards other races, ethnic groups, sexual preferences, etc…

    But being a RACIST means the believe your race is inherently superior and all other races are below you.

  • No Thanks

    It could be a game playing tactic. It might win them the show, but they will eventually lose at life once the show is over.

  • Reflects On Life

    I think many would disagree with you that this presents a skewed perspective. In my experience, this behavior is not normal but it is common.

  • YaoMingMing

    After the show, no one will know who they are.

  • vd88

    I think ppl on these shows are very representative of the American public. There are racists out there, there’s ppl like Candice that feel victimized, there’s ppl like Howard who feel they can’t say anything because it’s a black men going against 3 white women and you know how that going to look. IMO this show is giving a very accurate look of today’s society.

  • chillj

    But I think it gives a sub-group a forum they should not have. They may be out there, but I don’t know them and if I did, it would be a very brief acquaintance. I don’t know people like these people; they are outliers.

  • Reflects On Life

    Just because they aren’t your friends does not mean they do not exist aplenty- it just means you have good friend-making skills.
    In fact, by making these claims, you are minimizing the very real and plentiful experiences of PoCs in America at the hands of these people whom you claim do not exist.

  • YaoMingMing

    Totally hit the spot. You are 110% right on whoever bright person you are. I should know, I am a minority. My post name should give you a clue to gender and race…hehe! It is a true reflection of America indeed. Thanks for understanding.

  • wayne strong

    My beef with employers who fire people over stuff they do off the clock is that it is not applied fairly and equally against everyone. So whatever modeling agency etc. they were employed with should have looked through every model’s social media accounts for racial words, lyrics and phrases. If found fire them/release them. I think one of the major reason’s for firing them was to get their company names out there anyways.

    It will probably difficult to do modeling work in the US except for southern/redneck brands. I would probably still hire them for something (not as a brand ambassador though). It would just depend on their skill set.

  • chillj

    It is representative of SOME of the public. But I don’t invite those it is representative into my home, so I don’t invite this show into it, either. You are generalizing; this does not represent all of the public.

  • YaoMingMing

    I feel it indirectly plenty of times and directly now and then. There’s behind your back types and in your face types. Sad, but true.

  • YaoMingMing

    Maybe Blake Shelton will hire her? Hehe JK.

  • Bobbi

    She’s not the only one. GinaMarie, Jeremy, and Spencer, at the very least, are just as bad. If they kick one of them off, they would all have to go.

  • Black Rose Films

    This video hits me so hard. I have been in situations like this and they are gut-wrenching. It really takes all your strength to walk away. I hope these girls get voted off. I really hope they are just game playing and its not how they really feel. Regardless, I wish we lived in a world where comments like this were never uttered.

  • YaoMingMing

    Same here. It’s like being bullied to some degree?

  • Matty Minkus

    They both have lost their jobs over this. This will stick for both GM and Ayren in their chosen fields of pageants and modeling. Hell, Ayren talked the other night about trying out for the Miss Texas pageant.

  • Reflects On Life

    Not just to some degree. This is bullying at its ugliest.

  • pj

    If that’s game playing it is equally as terrible, IMO.

  • Matty Minkus

    I’d rather have it shown. Racism isn’t always so blatant, it’s more covert and that can be MORE damaging. Maybe people will realize that you can look like pretty Mary sunshine and still have an ugly heart and mind.

  • pj

    The problem with this is that the worst offenders are getting airtime and possible later endorsements. People would have to live in a cave to no think racism exists. I don’t need it in the form of a reality show that is supposed to be entertainment.

  • Bobbi

    Oh, I believe Aaryn and GinaMarie know exactly what they’re saying. It isn’t just a question of not thinking. This is deliberate.

  • pj

    Southern redneck brands?

  • No Thanks

    Here is the dictionary definition of RACISM:

    rac·ism

    /?re?s?z?m/ Show Spelled [rey-siz-uhm] Show IPA

    noun

    1.

    a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one’s own race is superior and has the right to rule others.

    2.

    a policy, system of government, etc., based upon or fostering such a doctrine; discrimination.

    3.

    hatred or intolerance of another race or other races.

    ****************************************

    So, if you’re a minority in this country (african america, asian, latino, arab, etc…). When they think racism. They think of #1 and #2.

    From a minority point of view, the race that holds the majority, holds the power and controls the system which will always give them the advantage. And quite of those in charge will use and abuse the ones that are NOT in charge. The consequences of this are far and wide and much deeper that a person in the majority can ever imagine. Mainly because they haven’t walked in their shoes. They haven’t seen it. They haven’t experienced it. So therefore they just don’t “get” it.

    Then you’ve got people like STU – who thinks “racism” only means #3

    Well, TECHNICALLY, that’s true. I’m sure hearing words like “honkey” or “cracker” or people making generalizations about you hurts your feelings. And probably doesn’t help race relations between different groups.

    But the key difference here is, while your feelings might be hurt, you’re not being systematically discriminated against in ways that affect you making a living, where you live, your daily life, or your self esteem.”.

    So non-white groups are probably thinking “So you’re feelings are hurt? Big whoop? Get back to me when you can’t get a job, or a loan, or have to worry if that police officer is going to help you or hurt you, etc…”

  • No Thanks

    It’s a PR thing. If what you did off the clock became public knowledge and your name is connected with a company or a brand. Then what you do reflects on that company. If you’re making the company look bad. You’re out.

    In today’s social media heavy world, you can not live in a vacuum and think your words and actions will have no affect on others.

  • chillj

    Possibly referring to Bubba Beer? Or Pickemuptruck Hair Guck? Cracker Snacks?

    (I get to do this; I’m half Tennessee.) :)

  • Reflects On Life

    It might be presented as “entertainment”, but if it brings forth a national conversation about racism (and homophobia and sexism, which this group has also indulged in), then I’m all for it.

    Also, on BB UK, its been the racism victims that have gained the subsequent 15 minutes of fame, endorsements, media interviews, and fan love, with the villains resoundingly derided. Maybe that will happen off BB USA too.

  • wayne strong

    guns and ammo, small regional beers/liquor companies, hunting and fishing gear, monster trucks and the like that demographically swing less liberal.

  • Miss Blue

    No rose-colored glasses. I know racism and bigotry exist – I just will not allow it in my vicinity. I have told off many a stranger for making racist remarks in public. Only way to shut the jerks up is to stand up to them.

  • chillj

    You don’t think you are stereotyping? Basically, that is what any prejudice is.

  • wayne strong

    Demographics is a statistical fact. Not prejudiced. Just like if I said more black people watch BET or NBA games. Check the Nielsen Stats.

  • breakdown

    For a minute I couldn’t understand how Amanda knew that Aaryn had gotten the racist edit until she said that most of them had been questioned about the racism. Why is this then not a larger topic of discussion in the house? It will be satisfying to see many of these creatures voted out of the game and then to hopefully see them face the consequences of their words and deeds.

    She’ll join either a ministry or politics. Both seem to attract and embrace those seeking a redemptive arc.

  • Listening

    First a little note I don’t watch the show so all the info I get on it is from comments here and youtube clips.

    Hmmm it seems like the producers we’re saying something on the intercom when Amanda was revealing to Aaryn they’d been questioned over her racist comments. There was this moment were Amanda like cocked her head in a see I was right motion. Maybe someone who was filming shushed her up. I just got the feeling something was being said that we couldn’t hear.

    I wonder if Amanda is going to get in trouble for telling Aaryn what the producers asked.

    I don’t think Aaryn is getting the Racist edit b/c she’s saying these things of her own free will and on the 24/7 cam it’s more like she’s getting the racist reveal. And I’d like to mention I mostly hear about Aaryn and Gina Maria but I watched a youtube clip that was a compilation of derogatory and racist comments and it was more than just those two. The bigger white guy don’t know his name has made some horrible comments about women and I believe the gay cast member. They were all sitting in a group so I wasn’t sure who said what but it was bad. What is up w/ these people are they all just feeding off of each other.

    But why would someone think those things simply of because what someone look like? persons of one’s own race have a myriad of experiences, abilities. motives, tastes, etc. What would stop that from being true of everyone? Skin color is no more important than eye color – or for that manner ear size – to me. Seriously. I guess, though, being honest, my prejudices lie in the area of intelligence, whether someone likes remaining ignorant or even champions it. And in my mind, that certainly applies to the people in this house acting like this.

    There is definitely more than just those 2 girls who have been saying bigoted and hateful things. I’d like CBS to expose them all.

    Listening, the voice you heard when Amanda was talking to Aaryn is prerecorded. It will say ‘You’re not allowed to talk about diary room sessions’ or ‘You are not allowed to talk about production.’ That is pretty much the only trouble they get into that we see or hear.

  • Miz

    They have been discussing it in the house amongst themselves. Just not 24/7.

  • Miz

    Watching Candice and Howard talking after that was gut wrenching and some of the most compelling drama I have seen in a long time. This is real life and more people need to see and confront it.

    Gee. I guess I missed the memo. My friends missed it too.

  • pj

    Hope so.

    The public votes on things like what extra food ‘have nots’ get to eat. This year we get to vote on a weekly MVP. We do NOT vote on who stays on the show. This isn’t American Idol.

  • Mateja Praznik

    No, it’s not American Idol, but usually the public votes who leaves the Big Brother house. Housemates eliminate each other and the ones with the most nominations are up for eviction. I think the American Big Brother is the only Big Brother where people have no say who stays and who goes.

    So, for example, you think a small regional brewery such as this one would hire her? http://blog.al.com/greenregister/2012/08/good_people_brewing_company_an.html LMAO.

    This season of BB is really intense but all the hurtful comments are getting on my nerves
