One of the women we loved to hate on "Big Brother," Aaryn Gries, was evicted from the house last night. She spoke with host Julie Chen to explain some of her racist comments.

Gries says she's not really a racist, just a misunderstood Texan. Gries, who was caught on camera mocking Asians, calling a gay house guest a queer and talking trash about African Americans, told Chen:

I did not mean to ever come off as racist. In Texas, we say things. Sometimes we joke and we don't mean it. I feel how bad it is being seen and how I've come across to people. I don't want to seem like that person. I apologize to anyone I offended for that. That was not meant to be serious and if I said those things, I feel horrible for that. I regret that.

Aaryn told Chen she doesn't remember ever making a racist comment in the house. Chen even read some of the comments to Aaryn as she squirmed in her seat.

She's now headed to the jury house and won't know for a few more weeks that she's lost her modeling agency contract.


Gina Marie won the HOH competition and this has Amanda and McCrae very worried. Gina Marie has been quite friendly with Elissa and it looks like she will put McCranda on the block.

Amanda is again going crazy. She's been harassing Elissa, following her around the house and making rude comments about her looks. This is just making the target on Amanda bigger.

Since next week will be a double eviction, look for Amanda to walk out the door first, followed closely by McCrae (unless he miraculously wins the HOH).
