Prior to getting into the acting and modeling industry, Ruiz told IGN in 2004 that she had planned on becoming an elementary school teacher, which was why she majored in sociology in college at University of California, Santa Barbara.

She said that she had initially been asked to do some catalog modeling work for girls clothing while in high school - where she played basketball and volleyball - but took a break from the industry until college.

'I really liked it but I was very shy in front of the camera,' she said, adding that 'I decided it wasn't for me until college, when I realized that I should have pursued it more because of the great opportunities to travel and meet so many different kinds of people. I decided to give it another shot, because I knew if I didn't, I'd regret it when I was older.'

Ruiz also said that she enjoyed modeling because 'I just love the transformation models can go through. Makeup and hair can make you feel like a different person, and its fun.'

Less than a week after the Peloton commercial controversy arose, Ryan Reynolds revealed that he had tapped Ruiz to star in a cheeky commercial for his Aviation Gin company, titled The Gift That Doesn't Give Back.

In the gin ad, Ruiz stares blankly into the camera for some time, before it's revealed that she's sitting at a bar enjoying a drink with her friends.

The ad, which appears to be positioned as a continuation of the Peloton ad, sees Ruiz proclaiming that 'This gin is really smooth,' as her friends say, 'You're safe here.'

After toasting each other, Ruiz says, 'To new beginnings,' before draining her glass. One of her friends then slides her glass over to Ruiz and says 'it's gonna be a fun night.'

The commercial wraps up with a shot of Aviation Gin and a voice over of a character saying, 'You look great, by the way,' a statement which is being seen as a dig at the the Peloton ad.

When sharing the ad with his fans, Reynolds tweeted: 'Exercise bike not included.'

In a continuation of her statement to Deadline, Ruiz said: 'When Ryan and his production team called about Aviation Gin, they helped me find some humor in the situation. I am grateful to both Peloton and now Aviation Gin for the work and giving me the opportunity to do what I love to do.'

Sean Hunter, the Vancouver, British Columbia, actor and elementary school teacher, who played the 'Peloton Husband,' has said that he is puzzled by the criticism of the ad.

When the ad first debuted in late November, Hunter told CTV News Thursday that he got ' positive feedback from my friends and family,' as well as from his acting coach.

But, 'Once it went viral, it really turned negative and I was getting a lot of feedback. People would make up additional storylines on what was happening. And they’re all just made up stories. I just didn’t understand why people would do that.'

Hunter said that he has 'big mixed feelings about it, especially with all the negative feedback.'

Despite this, Hunter has made light of the controversy via his Instagram - pelotonhusband - posting quips about how he should've kept the receipt for the exercise bike, in addition to a screengrab of Ruiz's gin ad and a follow up, in-character image with the caption: 'Still waiting for #pelotonwife to come home... have you seen her?'
