Tonight on Big Brother, we see Caleb Reynolds move into the Big Brother 16 house. Unlucky Caleb is the first Big Brother 16 houseguest to garner controversial headlines. Unfortunately, if last season is any indication, he won't be the one and only. Countless racial, homophobic, and misogynistic remarks made Big Brother 15 not-so-much fun. Are we headed down the same path for Big Brother 16? One peek at Caleb's social media accounts suggests we are, indeed, headed down the same path.
I desperately need for Amanda to be the first houseguest voted out of the Big Brother house tonight. It will make perfect sense and be a glorious sight!
That said, a lot has happened in theBig Brother house since early Tuesday morning – an unlikely partnership and an explosive fight – that could influence tonight's votes. Expect diary room manipulation the unexpected!
As we previously reported, Aaryn's mother, Elizabeth Owens, hired a publicist to help repair her daughter's image. Now that Aaryn has been evicted (though she's still sequestered) and the Big Brother finale is just two weeks from today (when Aaryn will reenter society), it's time for this publicist to get to work!
Last night, Aaryn was unanimously voted out of the Big Brother house, and now she'll join Candice Stewart, Jessie Kowalski, and Helen Kim in the jury house. But first… a little chat with Julie Chen…
Much to my amazement, Julie grilled Aaryn last night, and I think she did the best she could with the "no info from the outside world" rule she must follow to keep the jury fair. Also a shock? CBS let the audience BOO! Aaryn.
Now Amanda's position as a realtor is being questioned due to an inactive real estate license. However, without an official statement or an understanding of how the real estate world works, it's hard to say if she has or hasn't been fired since appearing on Big Brother.
Big Brother 15 has been consumed by controversy with several houseguests spewing hateful and racist remarks every chance they get. Aaryn Gries, a 22-year-old college student/model from Texas, has been denounced by fans of the show and mainstream media, which led to the end of her modeling contract, for her ignorance.
Of course, the uncensored live feeds clearly show that Aaryn is not alone, but CBS has decided that she shall be the poster child for everything that's wrong with Big Brother 15. (Please don't think I feel sorry for her – I do not.)
Howard Overby, a 29-year-old youth counselor from Mississippi, was targeted by Aaryn (Head of Household) and Amanda Zuckerman (Queen of Bullydom) and evicted on Thursday. Immediately following his eviction, Howard told Julie Chen, enduring racism inside the Big Brother house was the "hardest thing in the world."
More and more, Big Brother host Julie Chen is opening up about the hate inside the Big Brother house this season, and she seems to be most offended by Aaryn Gries. Rightfully so! Aaryn – along with GinaMarie Zimmerman – has been fired from her job since entering the Big Brother house. Of course, she's still sequestered, so she has no idea!
Anyway, back to Julie's thoughts on Aaryn, who has personally attacked African-American, Asian-American, and gay BB15 houseguests. "The fact that a young person in this day and age would engage in such racism is very disturbing," said Julie. "When I was growing up in Queens in the '70s, I heard 'chink' and 'ching-chong' and they pulled their eyes – but that was in the '70s!"
