GinaMarie Zimmerman was the runner-up of Big Brother 15. GinaMarie quickly aligned herself with Aaryn, and they became infamous for their "mean girl" acts. GinaMarie was often made fun of for her inability to pronounce certain words because of her New York accent and for her strange obsession with fellow HouseGuest, Nick. She often fought with many other HouseGuests during the season. After Aaryn's eviction, GinaMarie joined The Exterminators, which allowed her to survive until the Final Two, where she lost in the final vote of 7–2.
