Aaryn Gries, a Texas State University student, got kicked out of the “Big Brother” house on Thursday night over allegedly racist comments.
Gries defended herself in a post-eviction interview with host Julie Chen.
“In the early days of this game, you said some pretty harsh things about your fellow housemates,” Chen said. “How do you respond to that?”
“Being Southern, it’s a stereotype, and I have said some things that have been taken completely out of context and wrong,” Gries said, “and I do not mean to ever come off as racist. That’s not me, and I apologize to anyone that I’ve offended.”
Gries remains on the show in the “jury house,” where she will be sequestered from the outside world until the show ends in September, according to TMZ. Gries’ modeling agency has dropped her over her behavior.
