'Big Brother' Finally Exposes Racist, Homophobic Houseguests: VIDEO

Gries

Last week, Kyler reported that Big Brother contestants Aaryn Gries, a 22-year-old Texas college student and GinaMarie Zimmerman, a 32-year-old New York pageant coordinator, have both been fired from their respective jobs outside of the game after a conversation between the two of them on the unaired 'live feeds', laced with racist and homophobic slurs, made its way to the web.

On last night's episode, CBS finally aired a segment of some of the racist and homophobic remarks made by Gries in what many are hoping is the beginning of a trend to expose the real-life views of some of the show's players.

Among Gries' comments are her comments about the gay contestant Andy: "no one’s going to vote for whoever that queer puts up."

Gries also comments about an Asian contestant, Helen: "go make some rice."..."I probably look like a squinty Asian right now....Why you no have boyfriend? It’s because you don’t want long nail!”

The segment also includes a snippet from Zimmerman: "Candice is already on the dark side because she's already dark."

Watch the segment, AFTER THE JUMP....

ClawsonAnother contestant, Spencer Clawson, a conductor for Union Pacific railroad, is now facing real-world consequences for his homophobic and pro-Hitler remarks on the show, TMZ reports:

Clawson has been captured on "BB" cams calling one houseguest "Kermit the F**" and praising Hitler as a gifted speaker.

Clawson serves as a railroad conductor for Union Pacific, who released a statement on their website saying, "The values represented by Spencer Clawson's comments during the Big Brother show do not at all align with Union Pacific's values."

They continued, "Mr. Clawson is on unpaid leave of absence while participating on Big Brother. Union Pacific does not condone his comments."

They ended their statement by saying they are "acting in accordance with Collective Bargaining Agreement terms regarding Mr. Clawson" ... which sounds like they are setting the stage to fire his ass first chance they get.

According to Tumblr users chronicling the dialogue on the live feeds, Spencer has also said about gay contestant Andy: “Of all the hate crimes that happen in the US, why couldn't one happen to that guy?”

  1. Women fear the male homosexual act because it proves that men are superior to women. Someone ought to cut the b!tch's hair off.

  2. It's not that I condone racial/gay slurs at all. I do not.
    But I just wonder where (if any) is the line between fighting intolerance and being intolerant ourselves... I hope we'll never cross that line guys...

  3. I am trying to imagine why anybody would want to waste their time watching this crap, but I can't come up with anything.

  4. If these people have no problem saying exactly how they feel on camera then I don't see why CBS would have a problem with revealing it. The people who feel this way should have no problem with CBS either (they did sign on to the show). It's also a good opportunity for people to realize that the general public doesn't feel the way they do and may toss them from their jobs.

  5. What is it with women and fake blond hair? Why do so many, young and old, dye their hair blond? This sounds like a strange rant, I know, but last week I was on a crowded subway and looked around. Easily 3 out of 4 of the young women had the fake blond hair, deep tan, and big sunglasses thing going on. WTF is wrong with their natural hair color? Brown hair is nice, black hair is nice, red hair is nice, auburn hair is nice, and real natural blond hair is nice [and rare]. But I think these toxic little queens like Gries give real blonds a bad name.

    None of this sh*t surprises me. Who'd be surprised to know these ladies [and guys] are TLQs in private?

  6. And how much of this drama is scripted?

  7. Okay, you're a racist...but have enough sense to keep that sh*t to yourself. Some people are so f*cking dumb.

  8. At least now viewers will get an accurate portrayal of these people. Hopefully CBS continues to air all the things they say.

  9. See? QUEER is a term of abuse. So many here want to keep using that hate word by "reclaiming" it for gay use only and then slamming others for using it ("that queer") just as some blacks once wanted to keep the N word amongst themselves, but slam others who use it (that's changing now).

    QUEER is hate. If we use it (yes! even in so-called university "queer" curricula), we have no business censuring others.

  10. African American Howard handles himself very well in that clip. I'd much rather be his friend than that horrible blonde witch, who really embodies the phrase "beauty is only skin deep." What an ugly, ugly soul she has.

  11. Here's an interesting point. If it's legal to fire someone for what he says or does "off the job," then in a way we are all slaves to our employment.

    Liberal/Conservative? This cuts both ways. A boss could legally fire someone for praising Trayvon Martin or saying that "racism is bad." It's not actually against the law for him to do so. In fact, the law is quite specific. The employer can fire "for any reason or for no reason at all" except in cases where particular legislation ties his hands. I think everyone will agree that the potential for bosses to push us around in our private lives is food for future thought.

  12. 1) US Big Brother shows are amazingly unwatchable, I am SHOCKED that someone subjected themselves to unaired footage at all.

    2) I like that ones opinions are starting to matter in the connected world. You are allowed to have whatever opinion you want but everyone else is allowed to shun you for it.

  13. This entire show celebrates mendacity so why should we be surprised that it features people like this?

  14. Having worked on reality tv shows I can tell you that contestants are encouraged to be outrageous and controversial in order to give them maximum air time. The problem is that broadcasters then take no responsibility for the monsters they have created but privately relish the media coverage and subsequent ratings boost they receive. I'm not saying that the contestants are not guilty of their homophobic and racial slurs, but broadcasters need to be held accountable for casting these unstable people and then encouraging their despicable actions.

  15. There was an amazing piece on NPR a few years ago -- an episode of "This American Life" called "Gossip," which aired on Aug 26 2011 -- with an interview with someone who specifically casts for reality TV shows. She talked about how the classic formula for reality TV show casts is for 50% of the cast to be people with Narcissistic Personality Disorder... because, well... it makes for great television. The NPR piece was ironic and hilarious, though sad. These people, especially Miss Aaryn, might easily qualify.

  16. They are loving the free publicity you are giving them. That's is all this is about, so stop giving in to it.

  17. I was glad they aired the comments, though disappointed they didn't air Spencer's as well, or Jeremy's sexist comments that no doubt would be cheered by Jason/Rick.

  19. A racist named Aaryn... how apropos.

  20. The real question is why has the Media felt for so long that it has to hide things like this? Apparently Mel Gibson acted crazy, violent and racist for YEARS, and the only media that ever even suggested that was a South Park episode, that, after listening to the tapes was right on the Money.

    The Supreme Court struck down sections of the Voting Rights act and the Chief Justice said it was because we have moved on. Perhaps if the media didn't work so hard to hide people like this, the Chief Justice wouldn't have gotten away with that argument.

  21. Sorry @Will, I hate to break it to you but words often have more than one meaning. How do we know what meaning is being used...context. I've been called a fag and queer enough times that I feel I've earned the right to use those words - and not as pejoratives. When I call myself a queer it does not have the same meaning that this girl is giving it. Removing words from the language is pointless - given the right context the word gay is a pejorative. Are we going to eliminate that word too?

  22. Marshall - ignore the distraction of the "Queer is a mean word!" commenters. It's nonsense.

    ANY word can be hurled as invective. intelligent people who understand nuance get this.

    you can use the word "BLACK" , with an ugly hateful tone, and it's really not that different from using the N-word.

    QUEER was never a word that was used against me in hatred, as an insult. GAY, however, was. as a kid. "GAY = that was the insult.

    does that mean nobody can use gay? no. it means everyone should apply some intellectual discernment into their thought process.

    i self-identify as Queer.

    you get it, marhsall. those that dont' seem to be willfully ignorant.

  23. Big Brother is just a zoo for sociopathic assholes now. They aren't remotely functional human beings. The first UK BB was full of really nice decent people: it was won by a lesbian Irish ex-nun: a kind and selfless woman who everybody just loved.

  24. When I see clips like these, I almost turn into a Christian conservative culture critic, lamenting the disgusting state of the nation and its destructive effect on young people. Aaryn and a couple of the others represent kids who grew up with no values but narcissism, raised on MTV and the Kardashians and the like, reading nothing but text messages, with no sense of right and wrong. Actually, she probably grew up watching shows like this, which is utter trash. Remember when we were kids and reality TV didn't exist? The world was a better place.
