Big Brother’s Frankie Reveals to Houseguests His Sister is Pop Star Ariana Grande: VIDEO

Zank

Openly gay Big Brother 16 contestant Frankie Grande, who's been busy this summer cozying up to all the good-looking straight men in the house, has so far been keeping a big secret from the other houseguests: he's the half-brother of pop star Ariana Grande. 

"Who?" - those over a certain age might be asking. Well she's the singer of the hit summer song "Problems" with Iggy Azalea and also starred in the Nickelodeon sitcom Victorious a few years back. There you go, all caught up. 

Screen Shot 2014-08-10 at 10.32.56 AMAnyhow, Frankie realized his fame-connection secret was "eating his soul away" and decided to spill the beans to the rest of the house late Friday.

Watch Frankie's reveal and the house's reaction, AFTER THE JUMP...

  2. This video just disturbed me on about 8 different levels. The existence of the show. The fame of Ariana Grande. The bragging but about something that's not braggable. The when the girl freaks out because he's met Justin Bieber. so so many wrong wrong things.

  3. ...and continues to talk about it, ad nauseam, for days...news flash: no one inside or outside the house cares.

  4. "Princes Adelaide has the whooping cough".

  5. Frankie realized that keeping a secret about his "famous" half-sister (that nobody over 16 has heard of) was "eating his soul away"? And he now feels compelled to "reveal his TRUE identity"? And now a couple houseguests might not vote him out because they want to be introduced to Justin Bieber?

  7. I may not be remembering this correctly because I don't watch this show. But, I thought this season of Big Brother had announced before their start-up that one of the house mates this season was supposed to be a well recognized HUGE anti-gay bigot. Why haven't we heard anything from him?

  8. There is no reason for anyone to watch this show.

  9. One cannot truly appreciate the humor in this video until one has seen the video of Frankie meeting Justin Beiber.

  10. Awkward attempts at snarky celebrity put downs that just make people look clueless are so cringeworthy. The girl has two songs in the top 10 right now and one of them has been there for months. Her fame extends past high school sophomores to anyone who is at all cognizant of popular music. I know Towleroad readership skews older but try and do better, guys.

  11. Anon, the bigot house guest (Caleb) turned out not to be a bigot. Just some blogs over reacting to his tweets. Guys correct me if I'm wrong, but I've seen gif of him and Frankie getting pretty cozy. Not as cozy was Frankie and Zach, but close.

  12. Caleb has kept his homophobia in check for the sake of his game, but he's been acting like an entitled misogynistic animal all season.

  13. She's a big celebrity right now and the reason he's on the show. Self-absorbed witty twinks are a dime a dozen, the sister is why he's there. I'm just happy he got this dark secret off his chest and can now live an authentic life.

  14. Only someone obsessed with celebrity culture would allow this minor detail about his life to be "eating his soul away". Is this how he defines himself, as someone connected to someone famous?
    This shows how very shallow he is, and it could possibly cost him the competition.

  15. "Frankie realized that keeping a secret about his "famous" half-sister (that nobody over 16 has heard of) was "eating his soul away"? "

    I guess souls come in snack-size, too. Who knew!?!?!

  16. @BILLY, I've seen reports of his tweets now. And, gotta say that only a racist bigot would refer to Obama as a muslim monkee and use anti-gay slurs in political discussions. Just because he's keeping it in-check now doesn't mean it isn't in his heart. Anti-gay slurs aren't your go-to pejoratives when angry if they aren't what you actually think.

  17. 50% of the housemates: "Who?"

    The other 50%: "Who cares?"

  18. "The girl has two songs in the top 10 right now and one of them has been there for months."

    Yeh, so has Justin Bieber.

  19. I love how smug and stupid people sound when they offer "Ariana who?" when there's a Google search at the top of their browser.

    Cool story, bro.

  20. The only reason he admitted that was because he had literally NO other card to play.

    Posted by: Tigernan | Aug 10, 2014 1:22:49 PM


  21. @Tigernan, I don't think he's offered his hole yet to every housemate.

  22. The funniest part is when he announces his full name and then take a big dramatic pause, hoping for gasps of recognition that don't happen.

  23. Yeah, I had to search her out on iTunes. I wouldn't know her if we were the final two in the Big Brother house. But I am loving Zach.

  24. Big Brother and CBS are obnoxious, only casting the mist flamboyant, unattractive, nonthreatening gay man possible

    Posted by: McMike | Aug 10, 2014 3:08:19 PM


  25. yeah, why can't Big Brother US find a gay man like the UK version did when they cast Gareth Thomas?
