Midway through Sunday’s episode — and after Aaryn had won the Head of Household competition — a three-minute montage of strategy talk and other discussions was played for viewers. Within the video package, houseguests such as Howard (who is African-American) and Amanda vented their disapproval for Aaryn and GinaMarie, two of the players who have been seen on the live feeds making offensive slurs.
The montage excerpted some of the aforementioned women’s racist and homophobic comments, which came to light during the first week of the new season. (“It’s like, ‘Shut up, go make some rice,’” Aaryn says in reference to Helen, who is Asian, while GinaMarie notes that African-American “Candice is already on the dark side, because she’s already dark.” Aaryn also uses an epithet to describe Andy, who’s gay.)
Side note: Per a TVLine reader poll, 82 percent said that CBS should not edit out all offensive slurs but instead let America see these players for who they truly are.
Because of the controversy, Aaryn and GinaMarie have, still unbeknownst to them, lost a modeling contract and a job as a pageant coordinator, respectively. Other houseguests on record as having made racist, homophobic and/or misogynist remarks, such as Spencer, were not singled out in the segment.
