After initially ignoring the controversy generated by some Big Brother contestants' racist and homophobic comments on the show's 24-hour webcam feed, CBS is now taking further steps to distance itself from the contestants. The network ran a "worst-of" reel featuring the offensive remarks on the July 7 episode, and this week's show featured a viewer discretion disclaimer at the start of the hour.
Gee, this season's Big Brother contestants sure know how to keep it classy. Less than two weeks after two of the houseguests were fired from their day jobs for racist and homophobic comments shown on CBS.com's live feed — those same two players engaged in a very racially charged argument with an African-American contestant.

Big Brother contestant Aaryn Gries has been fired from her modeling agency for offensive comments she made on the show, TMZ reports. Gries, 22, has been seen and heard multiple times on the show's after-hours live feed making both homophobic and racist remarks -- calling a gay houseguest "queer," telling Asian-American Helen to "shut up and go make some rice," and saying, "Be careful what you say in the dark, you might not be able to see that b----," in reference to African-American contestant Candice.
It's summertime and the living is easy...except on the hit game show Big Brother where lying and backstabbing are the order of the day and revenge is a dish best served cold — with a heaping side of slop! The 15th installment of the popular CBS franchise, hosted by Julie Chen, will return Wednesday (8/7c) with two new twists that are sure to stun the contestants and trigger seismic shifts in the game. Instead of two houseguests being nominated for eviction each week, the players will now nominate three. Plus, BB viewers will play a key role in the outcome of the game when they get to vote each week for the contestant they feel is playing the best game — the Big Brother MVP — and the winner will be given a special secret power. TV Guide Magazine sat for a chat with the sequestered houseguests to get their juiciest deets just before they met each other and entered the game. Who plans to lie about her perfectly legal but highly unpopular occupation? Who is most likely to send the CBS censors into cardiac arrest? And who is related to a highly polarizing BB contestant from the past? Expect the unexpected!
