Alright I'm just gonna put this out there, I don't follow Big Brother. I think I may need to start… the drama, oh the drama!
So there's been a lot of seriously unfortunate drama this season. Not the fun, ridiculous drama that usually encapsulates a reality television show but some nasty racism and homophobic drama that luckily is getting the fans riled up.
The newly evicted 23-year-old bragged about hooking up with fellow houseguest Kaitlin Barnaby, where he described her lady box in some disgusting ways (he also referred to female house guests as "bitches"). Despite those unsavory remarks, Jeremy insists he's pretty innocent and defends himself against accusations that he is racist or homophobic!

"I’m not racist, sexist, or homophobic, so I mean, I guess everything can be taken out of context," Jeremy tells Entertainment Weekly about his comment. "Everybody in there was friendly with everybody and we weren’t scared to say it in front of each other, so I’m sure it was just twisted and turned in a way to entertain. But I guess we’ll just have to wait and see."
Anticipating Kaitlin's reaction, Jeremy pleads the fifth. "Hopefully, she reacts well," he quips. "I know who I am, and I know that no matter what anybody says, it’s not going to change my feelings about myself. So bring it on is all I have to say."
Now onto his castmate's behavior! Jeremy doesn't excuse it, but he expresses that it's impossible to understand how insane the environment is and he didn't want to "rock the boat" while he was in the house. Is that a fancy way of saying he was desperate to remain in the house?!
"I mean, it was crazy, don’t get me wrong," Jeremy admits. "It was an emotional roller-coaster, and I just had to sit back and watch for most of it. But being there was kind of surreal regardless of what was going on."
"I didn’t want to get on anybody’s bad side, and if it wasn’t effecting me or at me personally, I didn’t really want to jump into it," Jeremy continues. "There’s probably some times I should’ve stepped in and said, 'Calm down,' but it’s a really crazy time. It’s really completely different than you would ever think, so I just sat back and enjoyed the show, I guess."
As for what's causing all the outbursts, Jeremy chalks it up to emotions running high. "This was a very emotional cast," he says. "I feel like there was a lot of high emotions, and that house is a pressure cooker, so I think it just made everything a little bit worse."
Jeremy says he'll be heading back to his boat to live. And maybe Kaitlin will join him…
Ugh – where did CBS find these atrocious people?!
