Big Brother 15: Aaryn's Eviction Interview, Priceless.
|BB15's Aaryn: Best eviction interview ever?|
Aaryn's eviction interview was everything I had hoped it would be. Julie Chen, you bomb ass biotch. (Yes, she brings up Aaryn's racist/homophobic comments.)
Big Brother 15 transcript of Aaryn's exit interview (just the juicy part, of course) on August 29, 2013:
Julie Chen: "In the early days of this game you said some pretty harsh things about your fellow housemates. Amanda even tried to warn you, give you heads up, that some of your words, others were interpreting as being racist. How do you respond to that?"
Aaryn Gries: "Being Southern is a stereotype and I have said some things that have been taken completely out of context and wrong, and I do not mean to ever come off 'racist'..."
Someone in the live audience starts laughing as if to say, 'bullshit!' Aaryn continues:
"..that's not me, and I apologize to anyone I've offended...for that."
Julie Chen: "We wanna point out, everyone in the house went in KNOWING that everything they say, everyting they do, gets broadcast live on the internet. So, when you say the intention was not to hurt anyone, let me just read back a few of the things you said..."
The crowd is all, "Oooooooh!" And across America (and the world) eyes bugged out, jaws dropped and a few of you probably tinkled with excitement.
Julie Chen: "Referring to Candice, you said, 'Be careful what you say in the dark, you might not be able to see the bitch.' Referring to Helen, you said, 'Shut up, go make some rice.'"
Aaryn Gries: "I didn't..."
Julie Chen: "And referring to Andy, you said, 'No one's going to vote for whoever that queer puts up.' Can you see how those things can be interpreted as racist, and as homophobic?"
Aaryn Gries: "I do, but I do not remember saying those things..."
The crowd has another outburst. No one is buying it.
Aaryn: "That was not meant to be serious, and if I said those things, I feel horrible for that, I regret that. I don't even know what else to say about that. But I'm not.."
I'll admit, I don't hate Aaryn. In fact, I don't "hate" anyone. Hate is precious energy wasted. I will say though, I wanted to kick the living ish out of her at the beginning of the season with the whole, "Whatchu gonna do guuuurl?" crap she pulled on Candice, and every other stupid thing she said.
Aaryn has a LOT Of growing up to do, and I'm hopeful that this experience will change her for the better. Damn straight it will make her stronger.
I believe Aaryn is ignorant, but I don't think she is full of hate. Luckily for her, the former is more easily corrected than the latter.
