'Big Brother' Bromances Continue As Male Contestants Show Off Their Muscles, Share Bed: VIDEO


House guest Frankie, Big Brother 16's openly gay contestant (and Ariana Grande's half-brother), seems to be flourishing as the other contestants embrace their inner bromanticism. Whether participating in a muscle competition or sharing a cozy bed, this season's initial male-male relationship between Frankie and Zach seems ready to expand.

It is certainly refreshing to see heterosexual guys feel comfortable enough with their sexuality to play around and have fun (without scapegoating the LGBT community). 

Check out several particularly friendly moments, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. Did you happen to see Finnish Big Brother 2007, there were two guys, Sauli (later Adam Lambert's boyfriend) and the straight one Niko. They slept (in the literal meaning) together, kissed, spend all their time together at the house. It was adorable.

    There's clips of them on Youtube.

  2. You know, I'm happy for them, but kind of annoyed, too.

  3. This has easily been the gayest season ever of the American version, it's really refreshing to see them all at ease with Frankie and each other, even Donny was painting his nails with the girls the other day.

  5. Caleb waxing political on Instagram, two years prior to being cast on Big Brother:

    "You believe in murder? You agree with fags? I guess so but I don’t agree with murdering a innocent baby which he clearly doesn’t mind. Nothin has changed in these last four years. Your just a democrat that wants that Muslim monkey in office. I’m done with you, your dismissed."

  7. Right. This obviously isn't carefully planned in order to drum up ratings for a sad show.

  8. *yawn*

    Queerbaiting for ratings and attention.

    Sorry, but i'm not going to reach for that hook.

  9. I think I tried watching this show all the way back in Season 1. God that makes me feel old! Anyway, I'm always surprised this show is still on and thought it was or would have been cancelled long ago. I guess the ratings generally improved.

  10. slow news day

  11. @ FURYOFFIRESTORM How is this gaybaiting? Big brother isn't forcing them to act this way. Besides, a lot of it isn't even showed on TV. Theyr'e all posted on youtube and other sites.

  12. Pandering...Queerbaiting...Ratings desperation. Zzzzzzz!

    Posted by: Sam | Jul 23, 2014 2:24:22 PM

  13. A bit ridiculous. This never happens in real life. Even gay men don't feel each other's muscles.

  14. ANON. You need to get out more.

  15. More Zach and Frankie. This is a very GAY and gay-friendly season:

  16. @Ryan: BB isn't "forcing" them to do anything (influencing behind scenes, maybe...).

    However, this is still queerbaiting. It's straight guys cuddling and flirting with the homosexual housemate in order to pander for attention. It doesn't have to be explicitly shown on TV to be queerbaiting.

  17. The pictures almost make me want to watch the clips, but won't.

  18. stop grabbing your junk all the annoying

  19. This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the gay goings-on in this house. Frankie has massaged Cody's butt, lied on top of Cody while he worked out and gotten just about every guy in the house to wear his high heels. The only "showmance" in the house is Zankie (straight frat-bro Zach and Frankie) and there are whole Tumblr sites devoted to the 350 times a day they flirt, grind or cuddle one another. Even the homophobic Caleb has been very tolerant of everyone.

    As for people who say this is a ratings grab, there was 1 short 45 second clip about "Zankie" on the televised show 2 weeks ago. Otherwise anything "gay" has been kept on the live feeds and After Dark. Not just a ratings grab... But it doesn't hurt! It shows an optimistic portrait of accepting 20 - 30 year old straight men in 2014 IMO.

  20. Why do people watch this garbage?

    Posted by: David | Jul 23, 2014 4:59:14 PM

  21. Well, I am going to reach for the hook. Queerbaiting for ratings nails it. Those het guys better check themselves cuz when they get out of that house they gonna find their whole lives have changed...heheheheh

  22. Usually the "feminists" will bring the homophobia....3...2...1...

  23. Oh, enough with the "3,2,1" already, Styler!

  24. The show is a pathetic excuse for tv

    Posted by: jarago | Jul 23, 2014 6:09:03 PM

  25. Of course their directed. And of course it's about ratings (it's a reality show). What's interesting is how they think the ratings will come. Via a confusing bromance that crosses all social lines. It's a good start I think - if more than a little crude.
