'Big Brother 15' Adds Disclaimer Following Racial Controversy, Reveals Week 3 Nominees

CBS stresses its stance on the controversy sparked by some of "" season 15 contestants' racist comments. On the show's latest episode which aired July 14, the network added a disclaimer which sounded similar to the statement it released before to address the issue.

"Big Brother is a reality show about a group of people who have no privacy 24/7. At times, the Houseguests may reveal prejudices and other beliefs that CBS does not condone. Views or opinions expressed by a Houseguest are those of the individuals speaking and do not represent the views or opinions of CBS. Viewer discretion is advised," the disclaimer read.

The episode that followed later saw Aaryn being confronted by several other HouseGuests about her racist remarks. Aaryn claimed that her "jokes" were being misconstrued as racist and apologized for it but Candice, who was offended by the "jokes," didn't buy Aaryn's apology.

Also in the same outing, current HoH Helen nominated Aaryn and Kaitlin for eviction, trying to backdoor Jeremy. Kaitlin had earlier won the Power of Veto and may use it to save herself.

Elissa is the MVP for a third week in a row, but McCrae lied to everyone that he's the MVP in an attempt to save Elissa.
