Aaryn Gries Prom Pics

Some of My Best Dates Are Black

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.
