Big Brother 19 cast lists keep hitting social media, with a new one getting posted on Friday (June 9). These “leaked” BB19 cast lists all seem to have one thing in common, though, with former houseguest GinaMarie Zimmerman getting listed as coming back to the show. GinaMarie was the runner-up on Big Brother 15, receiving two jury votes to almost take home the $500,000 prize. The Big Brother 15 winner was Andy Herren, but GinaMarie’s finish and Andy’s win were not really what live feed viewers were talking about for most of the season.
Big Brother 15 Mean Girls Alliance, Bullying, And A Cast Member Getting Fired
The Big Brother 15 cast was a very divisive one, and as an article by The Hollywood Reporter explains, three of the houseguests damaged their real-life jobs due to comments they made in the BB15 house. Aaryn Gries, GinaMarie Zimmerman, and Kaitlin Barnaby formed a group that would become known as the Mean Girls Alliance during this season. The trio earned that name by taking a page straight out of the Lindsay Lohan movie, conducting themselves as if they were the mean girls in the film as the BB15 season progressed. A report by Big Brother Network provided a synopsis of that behavior.
As THR reported, Aaryn Gries was dropped by her talent agency for using racial slurs against fellow houseguests, GinaMarie Zimmerman was fired by the East Coast USA Pageant Inc. for using racial slurs, and Spencer Clawson had made several questionable statements that caused his employer (Union Pacific Railroad) to issue a statement saying they didn’t support his words. Finally, there was Amanda Zuckerman, who received a lot of bad publicity for her bullying tactics in the BB15 house, but at the same time, she grew a staunch fan base on social media.

Do GinaMarie Zimmerman And Amanda Zuckerman Deserve A Second Chance?
In addition to GinaMarie Zimmerman showing up on a lot of leaked (faked) Big Brother 19 cast lists, Amanda Zuckerman is also appearing on many of them as well. Neither lady left the Big Brother house with a lot of support from fans, but there is certainly an argument that could be made for them getting a second chance to overcome the negativity that they brought to the show. Would fans turn on CBS to see that all take place?
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Amanda Zuckerman has actually responded to the purported Big Brother 19 cast lists, stating that she will be getting married this summer. That would seemingly rule out an appearance by her in the BB19 house, but her statements could also be a technique to distract viewers from what might happen next. Still, it has all given a lot of fuel to the Big Brother rumors about a “second chance” season with all former houseguests.

Big Brother 19 Schedule And Official BB19 Cast Members
The Big Brother 19 schedule doesn’t get started until the final week of June when the houseguests enter the game on the weekend prior to the season premiere. The BB19 cast will likely start playing the game around June 24, and then the season premiere on CBS will air June 28. The reason for the delay is to allow time for production to gather enough footage for the first two episodes.
Big Brother 19 episodes will air on Sundays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays this summer, falling into a routine that should be very familiar to CBS viewers. Sundays will reveal the weekly nominations for eviction, Wednesdays will focus on the Veto Competition and Veto Ceremony, and on Thursdays, CBS will host the Eviction Ceremony and Head of Household (HOH) Competitions.
With the days counting down until the Big Brother season premiere, it is just about time for CBS to release the official list of BB19 cast members and for host Julie Chen to give her first BB19 house tour. The network and production team haven’t been good about giving fans hints on when this will all take place, but it will likely all take place within the next 10 days. At that point, fans will finally know whether GinaMarie Zimmerman and other former houseguests are going to be part of the Big Brother 19 cast.
