GinaMarie Zimmerman is just one of several “Big Brother 15” house guests who learned on Sept. 18, 2013, after the season finale that they no longer had a jobs due to offensive statements made during the show.
According to Entertainment Weekly, GinaMarie is devastated by the news, saying it feels like “a really big stab in the heart.”
She has apologized for her racist comments, telling the Los Angeles Times, “I do apologize. That’s not me. Sometimes things were said out of anger. I’m Italian, and I have a big heart. I’m used to being around a lot of different races.”
Some of GinaMarie’s offensive statements in the house include referring to welfare as “n***** insurance,” saying of evicted house guest Elissa Slater’s son, “…that kid looks like a f****** Spanish Puerto Rican little dirt f***,” calling other cast mates “biracial robots who aren’t human,” and noting she wanted to punch Helen, an Asian house guest, in the face to “uncross her eyes.”
Despite this, it appears the cast member she pined over the entire time in the house, Nick Uhas, who was evicted week two, still plans to take her out on a date to a monster truck rally in Philadelphia.
GinaMarie can afford to be without a job, at least for a short time, as she ended up winning second place in “Big Brother 15” and thus, takes home $50,000.
Andy, who was publicly chastised for his behavior in the house by his prospective employer, College of DuPage, was the victor of “Big Brother 15,” winning $500,000.
The show has been picked up for another season, so it will be interesting to see whether producers will take to heart that this year's “Big Brother” has been deemed the worst ever, and be much more selective in the casting process for “Big Brother 16.”
