Big Brother contestant Aaryn Gries was fired from her modeling job when live feeds of the CBS reality show caught her making racist comments, and now the 22-year-old is responding — with a middle finger.
The hook of the summer reality show is that cameras are on the houseguests 24 hours a day, though Gries and fellow contestant GinaMarie Zimmerman seemed to have forgotten. Live feed watchers caught the two using racial slurs against black contestants and another of Asian descent.
Shortly afterward, the Big Brother contestants were fired from their respective modeling jobs outside the house.
Though footage of the racist slurs have not yet been shown on the CBS show, Aaryn apparently is sensing the blowback. When she cast her vote this week for a contestant to be evicted, she reportedly heard the live audience outside the house booing her.
The fallout could be even worse once the footage actually airs. Gries and Zimmerman were heard calling a gay houseguest “queer.” About another houseguest of Asian descent they said “shut up and go make some rice” and “she is the first Asian I know who doesn’t do nails.”
Zimmerman took it even further, referring to welfare as “N—er insurance.”
CBS responded to the incident, saying: “Big Brother is a reality show about watching a group of people who have no privacy 24/7 — and seeing every moment of their lives. At times, the Houseguests reveal prejudices and other beliefs that we do not condone. We certainly find the statements made by several of the Houseguests on the live Internet feed to be offensive.”
Big Brother contestant Aaryn, already fired in real life, apparently had some strong feelings for the American public who booed her. Live feed watchers caught her flipping the middle finger to a camera when discussing fan reaction.

Some fans now believe the Big Brother contestant fired in real life should be evicted from the show as well.
