GinaMarie Zimmerman might want to put those post-BB celebration plans on hold. Following in the footsteps of Aaryn Gries being let go from her day job, GinaMarie has also lost her job.
Entertainment Weekly reports that East Coast USA Pageant Inc. is no longer employing the foul-mouthed Big Brother 15 HG.
“We have never known this side of Ginamarie or have ever witnessed such acts of racism in the past,” CEO Lauren Handler said in the statement.
“We are actually thankful that this show let us see Ginamarie for who she truly is as we would never want her to be a role model to our future contestants.”
GinaMarie has been repeatedly caught on camera delivering offensive racial slurs aimed at other members of the cast. Her “worst of the worst” offenses include referring to welfare as “n****r insurance,” suggesting they could hit Helen Kim in the head to straighten out her eyes, and Candice Stewart was on the dark side of the house “because she’s already dark.”
CBS has said they “do not condone” these comments, but appear unlikely to take any action against the HGs for their behavior.
Let’s hope for a quick exit and quiet trip to obscurity for Zimmerman.
In comparison to recent events, it wouldn’t take much to be considered a likable houseguest. Apparently that was too much of a challenge for HG Jeremy McGuire.
Last night on the Live Feeds, Jeremy closed out an inspirational speech for David, one of this week’s nominees, by scooping up a hat belonging to another nominee, Elissa Slater, and rubbing it down his butt crack. First we had #Hatgate, then we had #Hategate, and now we have #Asshat (or #Hatgate2 if you prefer the mundane).
Viewers with the Live Feeds can flashback to 6:55PM BBT as listed in our Feed highlights recap for Tuesday night. There you’ll find Jeremy encouraging David to keep fighting just before doing the deed to Elissa’s hat. Ironically, Jeremy was not planning to vote to keep David during tonight’s live eviction show.
Around 8:50PM BBT Jeremy is called to the DR and stays there for more than a half hour before emerging and holding a brief exchange with Elissa around 9:30PM BBT.
It’s not until 11:15PM BBT that Jeremy tells Elissa what he did, though he scales back the truth and claims less than what really happened. He tells her the hat is being dry cleaned. Jeremy seemed legitimately concerned after his talk with the DR. Later Judd reported that Jeremy was unaware HGs could be ejected for behavior in the house.
These events may sound familiar to long time fans. BB2’s Shannon used Hardy’s electric toothbrush to clean the toilet, but was forced to apologize and replace it before Hardy had a chance to use it.
You keep it classy, Jeremy (and way too many other HGs too)!
Tonight on Big Brother 15 another houseguest will be evicted and after all the drama this week I think we know exactly who will be evicted.

We’ll be interviewing tonight’s evicted Big Brother 15 HG so feel free to share any questions you might have and we just might use it.
Big Brother 15 Week 1 Eviction Predictions – David, Elissa, or Jessie:
Looks like David is heading back to the beach to work a little this summer unless he skips that and goes straight to the unemployment line, his normal routine as he told us.
What do you think of our prediction? Share your thoughts below on who you think will be evicted tonight on Big Brother!
The 22 year-old college student out of San Marcos, Texas grabbed national headlines when she, along with several other HGs, made a string of racially insensitive and homophobic comments against her fellow competitors over the course of several days on the CBS reality series’ Live Feeds show uncensored live events between episodes.
Houseguests’ comments have included Aaryn saying Helen Kim should “shut up and go make her some rice” and for other HGs to “be careful what you say in the dark, you might not see the bitch” regarding Candice Stewart. GinaMarie Zimmerman has described welfare as “n****r insurance” and suggested hitting Helen in the head to make her eyes straight. David Girton, Aaryn’s on/off in-house boyfriend, told Aaryn his bed sheets smelled because of “black Candice.”
Meanwhile, HGs have called Andy Herren several homophobic slurs to his face, claiming the comments to be jokes. Amanda Zuckerman called Andy “F*ggoty Ann” with Spencer Clawson referring him to as “Kermit the F*g. Aaryn also referred to Andy as “queer” and feared America would vote to support him as they “love the queers.”
Zephyr Talent, a modeling agency based out of Austin, Texas, announced late last night that Aaryn was being released from her contract with the agency in a step to distance themselves from her vile behavior. They released this statement via Facebook:
Aaryn, season 15 cast member of Big Brother, revealed prejudices and other beliefs that we (Zephyr Talent) do not condone. We certainly find the statements made by Aaryn on the live Internet feed to be offensive.
Any views or opinions expressed in personal commentary by Aaryn, either on any live feed from the House or during the broadcast, are hers alone and do not represent the views or opinions of Zephyr Talent. Upon much consideration, we have decided to release Aaryn from her contract with Zephyr Talent.
Gries appears unaware of the depth or consequences of her actions as she expressed concern on Monday of letting down her fellow Texans by allowing unflattering images of her to be captured from the Live Feed views. She made no mention at that time of worry over her disparaging and hurtful remarks.
CBS has said they found Aaryn’s comments “offensive” but we believe it is unlikely they will take action against the cast member based on similar past season events.
You can watch all of these events from the uncensored Big Brother video feeds using CBS’ Archives “flashback” feature on the Live Feeds. Get a free trial of the video service to see what other fans are watching and reporting.
Update: Aaryn has lost a second modeling job. This time with Bella Petite.

The rest is over in the Big Brother 15 house. Not only do we have an eviction on Wednesday, but we had a busy night on the Live Feeds, including some more arguments and an incident similar to Big Brother 2’s infamous toothbrush incident where one HG abused the property of another in a foul manner.
Pick up here where we left over earlier from Tuesday’s daytime Feed highlights.
