Although Aaryn Gries was dropped by her modeling agency while in the “Big Brother 15” house for offensive racial and gay slurs she was heard uttering on live feeds, on Sept. 18, 2013, she told Suzanne Marques with CBS 2 Los Angeles she has six meetings lined up with new modeling agencies on Thursday.
Zephyr Talent in Austin, Texas, the agency that terminated her contract, continues to have a message on its main page regarding Aaryn, which notes that it supports free speech, but does not agree with Aaryn’s statements.
Aaryn took a jab at Zephyr as well when she told the CBS 2 reporter about the company, “To be honest with you, it wasn’t that great of an agency anyway…”

When asked if she had anything to say about her controversial comments, Aaryn stated, “They were very ignorant and insensitive… I wasn’t thinking before I spoke… I definitely don’t feel that way and I think that a lot of things were taken out of context, unfortunately… I own up to it, but… it is what it is, and I’m learning from it.”
Fellow house guest Candice Stewart, who was the brunt of many of the racist remarks Aaryn was heard making in the house, told CBS 2 that she believes Aaryn is a changed woman.
“I think when you know better, you do better… And I think… me not giving negativity and giving her love once she was inside of the jury house has really changed her,” Candice said.

According to the local news media outlet, GinaMarie Zimmerman, who took home $50,000 placing second in “Big Brother 15,” said that she also wants to apologize for her actions inside the house. GinaMarie was also let go by her employer for the offensive statements she made while on the show.
According to Joker’s Updates, during a finale aftershow in which former “Big Brother” contestant, Jeff Schroeder interviewed the house guests in the backyard of the “Big Brother 15” house, three women, described by those watching the live footage as Aaryn’s “PR team,” were nearby her the entire time she was conducting interviews.
Andy, who was this season’s victor and won $500,000 in the process, was admonished by College of DuPage on its Facebook page for some of his actions and comments in the house as well.
