Gretchen is portrayed as a hardworking professional beautiful lady who works as a Securities Exchange Commission inspector. She is direct and doesn’t put up with any nonsense. She is stern and unwavering even towards Jack in an interview.
Deja is shown to be a high-class stripper by night and a nail technician by day. She decides to rent Zac’s duplex immediately since she is so pleased with it. As a result, provides him with all of her credit information and offers to write him any checks he needs.
