Aaryn Gries Prom Pics

Some of My Best Dates Are Black

9/6/2013 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0905_aaryn_gries_prom_pictures_launch"Big Brother" contestant Aaryn Gries has taken lots of heat for her racist comments on the show ... but we have color photos showing a more tolerant side.

We got pics of Aaryn's big prom night in 2009, when she was a senior at Douglas County High School in Castle Rock, Colorado.  Her prom date -- clearly visible in the photo -- is Mike Miller.  Mike -- who is BLACK -- was a starting tight end on the football team.

Mike tells TMZ Aaryn -- whom he dated for a few months -- makes bad jokes sometimes, but not "prejudiced or hateful."  He calls her sense of humor "smart-ass." 

Who knew ... she had a little black in her.

This girl is one of the most beautiful chicks on the planet and you all are a bunch of hateful losers. It sucks when you have to admit you were wrong after spewing your unwarranted accusations at her. You TMZ'ers are pathetic and ignorant losers.

What about the other racist comments in the house. You focus on this one girl when several others have made even worse comments!

Oh well, there is some solid proof there. Lance Bass had a female prom date so therefore not gay.

Enough already. You can trot out pictures with one in your mouth and they are still going to call you a racist. It's over and done. Let it go.

He looks Hispanic/mixed. Not like she was out with a brotha. At any rate, why does she get a pass? Didn't Paula Deen have black friends? Yes, she did, the video was even on TMZ about it. Oh, but TMZ massacred Deen. Is it just because this girl is young and cute? Playing racist was her strategy in the house, let her deal with the aftermath. She gave Texans a bad name with her dumb comments.
