GinaMarie Zimmerman - Big Brother 15

Drama arose this morning from events on the Live Feeds where viewers suspected GinaMarie of cheating as a Have-Not this week on “Big Brother 15.”

Flashback to 8:27AM BBT Tuesday on Camera 1. GinaMarie rises from her airplane seat bed and heads out of the Have-Not room for the Storage room. She first checks the cabinet and then steps over to the fridge. Reaching in GinaMarie grabs a 2-liter soda bottle of clear liquid, lifts it to her mouth, and drinks for a solid ten seconds breaking once in between. GinaMarie replaces the bottle and heads back to the Have-Not room. Scroll down to look at all the images or click here to start the gallery.

So, did GM break the rules? As a Have-Not she is definitely not allowed soda like Sprite. Violating Have-Not status in a move like sneaking a quick bite of food or drinking a soda would usually net the HG an extension of his or her role as a HN or possibly as severe as a penalty nom. Lucky for GM, it doesn’t appear she will face punishment.

Another viewer on Twitter, @JaniTholemyDoll, was quick to point out the soda bottle was most likely actually a bottle of seltzer water. GM has complained of an upset stomach and gas for awhile. Anyone who watches the Feeds knows GM’s infamous burps and gas. We hear the burps all day and hear HGs complain about the gas as well. GinaMarie has specifically discussed needing carbonated beverages to help with her stomach and this would fit that request.

Stand down, Feedsters. While we always enjoy the added drama of another Live Feed scandal it looks like this isn’t that case this time around. Check out the event on Flashback for yourself or take a look at the screenshots below. Don’t have the Feeds yet? Sign-up for the free trial and watch it now on the in-house cameras archive feature.

Update: @Baby_Zingbot says that according to GM, production wouldn’t give her anything with “bubbles.” So either production changed their mind, GM was wrong about that, or she drank something she wasn’t supposed to. My first guess would be the former two options, but the third is always a possibility. What do you think?
