Zinn became angry when officials were attempting to negotiate a plan to continue production for Vote for the Girls while the facility was being remodeled (and displacing Zinn in the process). Zinn protested when a she learned that the available resloutions Zinn was offered did not meet Zinn’s standards and swearing at an official. Zinn said “I want this done the way I want to handle with and ZERO INTERRUPTIONS!”, and during the comment, pounded three times saying, “ZERO INTERRUPTIONS!” and got into the official’s face. When she continued to argue with the officials, Zinn was ejected and left the VFTG USA stage after NoSirGifts president and boss Jackson Steele came to the floor to talk with Zinn and officials.

“I was shocked–that’s about as simple as I can put it,” Steele said. “I’ve never seen anything like this happen before. “Holly (Everman) said she just wanted us to keep things in perspective, to go out and continue production and not to let it bother us. I know it bothered me. We had an opportunity to find a reasonable solution that favor both the facility’s landlady, Ms. Zinn, and the moderators and Ms. Zinn’s actions were unacceptable. I’ve known Ms. Zinn and (Margaret) her mother for 20 years and clearly saw a very angry woman.”
In the meantime, Zinn’s daughter and girlfriend, Samantha and Kymberly (Alvaraz), took over directing the web site for the spring cycle premiere.
Ava Zinn was not available for comment after the game. Kymberly Alvaraz declined immediately to make comment and (Ava) Zinn will issue a statement on this web site and on her own web site (AvaZinn.com) Sunday night.
Everman, the Pink team moderator, said: “I think Ava’s temper fired us up, and we wanted Alexis Gomez to become the American Idol 14 winner. It got the crowd into the competition, and it was probably won or lost right there. I don’t remember anything like it. She coaches her way and I my way.”
Ava & Kymberly’s purple team moderators and some of the pink team moderators thought (Ava) Zinn’s actions were done to inspire the purple team, which the pink team recently being rewarded after Everman’s pick of Alfonso & Witney won the 19th season of Dancing with the Stars, and Kellie Rock’s pick of DaNica Shirey was saved from the Vote for the Girls loss on the seventh season of The Voice.
“It’s not something that we were really expecting to happen, but then again, we really don’t know what to expect,” VFTG Purple team’s Rhonda Rhodes said.
Rhodes’ teammate, Kendra Ray, said of Zinn: “She did what she thought was right.”
VFTG Pink Team’s Tracia Ward said: “I think Ava Zinn did it to get the purple team fired up. After the incident, we just wanted to beat them worse. I don’t think she should be suspended. I know Ava had a reason for doing it. If that’s what she wants to do to get her team fired up, that’s all right with me.”
Ward’s teammate, Thia Tola said: “I don’t know what she’s doing. She’s a tough boss and I think (Holly) Everman’s a tough moderator, too. But, she (Zinn) and Kymberly gets a little frantic at times. Getting into someone’s face and a screaming match at a over a television program is going a little too far.”
The incident was the latest in a series for the controversial Zinn, who last year auctioned off her virginity to Kymberly Alvaraz following Christina Grimmie’s third place finish on the sixth season of The Voice (which was won by her Vote for the Worst pick, Joshua Kaufman). Those two aforementioned incidents are also in a string of problems on the moderator panel. Everman was suspended from the moderator panel after being shoved to the floor by the late Khayla Chow after taking offense to Everman called Chow a “bi-Black-bimbo,” causing the Vote for the Girls brawl on April 10, 2014 and upon seeing that Jena Irene was named runner-up of the 13th season of American Idol, Everman shaved her head and binded her breasts (appearing more a female-to-male transgender individual) while Rock appeared as a Breast Cancer survivor during the summer of 2014. Everman was suspended again after a second DUI arrest in Indianapolis in August 2014. Alvaraz was suspended from the moderator panel after fatally shooting Khayla Chow and her friend, Victoria Glassering in October 2014, and was found not guilty of second degree involuntary manslaughter.
