Thursday night on “Big Brother 2013” Aaryn Gries was evicted from the house. Julie Chen did do a short exit interview with her, and viewers were quite curious to see what would be said. Did Julie put Aaryn in her place on the Aug. 29 show after all of Gries’ derogatory comments this season?
Aaryn Gries had some applause upon her exit from the “Big Brother 15” house, but there were also some boos. Julie starts off relatively softly by offering up that Aaryn “said some pretty harsh things” in the house. Aaryn essentially brushing things off a bit, saying, “Being Southern is a stereotype, and I have said some things that have been taken completely out of context.” Of course “Big Brother 2013” live feed watchers know this is absolutely inaccurate, as things were not taken out of context.
Julie Chen then goes on to read to Aaryn some of the comments that have been repeated most frequently. She mentions how Aaryn quipped that Helen should go make some rice, how Candice wouldn’t been seen in a dark room, and how she referenced Andy in a derogatory way. The look on Aaryn’s face was pure shock and panic, as she seemingly didn’t remember saying those things.
Next Aaryn tried to play it all off as jokes, and she said she didn’t mean those things if she said them. She added, “I really feel bad that this is how it’s being seen and how I’ve come across to people.” She also said that they are all “fighting for our lives in the game” and that may have led her to say some things she shouldn’t have said.
Of course Julie Chen didn’t tell Aaryn Gries the extent to which her comments in the house have impacted her life outside the house. Aaryn has lost a couple of modeling contracts and her mom reportedly hired a publicist to try to repair the damage. As Julie pointed out, once the finale airs Aaryn will get back into the real world and watch a lot of the footage, and she will have some big shocks ahead.
Julie ended the interview by saying that she thinks and hopes Aaryn Gries might have a new perspective on things once she gets home and catches up to all the footage that has had people talking. Many would be curious to hear from Aaryn in a month or two and see just where things stand.
Of course as “Big Brother 2013” live feed watchers know, Aaryn is hardly the only one who has made derogatory comments in the house this season. However, hers are the only ones that have been shown to any significant extent on the show. Seeing how some of these folks integrate back into the real world again, and the work force, will certainly be interesting. “Big Brother 2013” airs on Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday nights on CBS.
