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


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.

Straight 'Big Brother' Housemate Cody Throws Wrench Into 'Zrankie' Showmance, Cuddles With Frankie: VIDEO


"Zrankie," the Frankie-Zach "Big Brother" showmance to end all showmances has, well, ended. For the time being at least, Frankie has moved on to another cuddle-buddy, the presumably hetero Cody Calafiore. Though Frankie, Zach, and Cody have previously laid in bed together, "Zrankie" only recently professed their love, leading one to wonder if Cody could have been a little bit jealous.

Of course it is impossible to tell just how real anyone's emotions are at the present; a cuddle could mean very little. Still, it is exciting to see the bonds develop, and for Frankie's relationship with his heterosexual housemates to extend beyond vague intimations of gay panic or, as in other seasons, outright homophobia.

Check out the cozy and cuddly footage, AFTER THE JUMP...

'Zankie' Confesses Their Love As 'Big Brother' Bromance Heats Up: VIDEO


Is the bromance becoming a showmance? Whatever we call it, the relationship between Big Brother 16 contestants Frankie and Zach (aka ‘Zankie’) continues to heat up with the two almost locking lips and confessing that they are in love with each other. 

BigBrotherDish has the transcript of how things went down on the live feed:

July 25, 12:55pm, Camera 2. HoH Room. Frankie and Zach.

Zach: What up, Frankie?

Frankie jumps into bed to spoon Zach.

Frankie: I'm like falling in love with you a little bit.

Zach: Are you?  I'm in love with you.

Frankie: A little bit.

Zach: I'm in love with you, without a doubt.

'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...

Homoerotic Showmance Blooms On Big Brother: VIDEO


Does Big Brother 16 already have its first showmance? House guests Frankie (who is pop singer Ariana Grande's brother) and Zach (a golf enthusiast from Florida) have formed quite the bond. Says Zach of his closeness to Frankie, "I like gay people. I'm straight and I only date women but Frankie is just one of the greatest people I've ever met."

Watch an official clip from CBS on the pair's PDA along with a fan-created montage of some of their most intimate moments, set to (what else?) "The Way" by Ariana Grande, AFTER THE JUMP...

'Big Brother 16' Hasn't Even Started and There is Already a Racist Homophobe Controversy

A few days ago we reported that Ariana Grande's gay half-brother would be appearing on Season 16 of CBS' Big Brother which premieres on Wednesday, and now it has been revealed that one of Grande's housemates is an alleged homophobe and racist.

CalebReynoldsCaleb Reynolds, a former prison guard in Iraq and professional hunter posted several unfortunate comments on his Instagram account, "insain_physique." He seems mostly to harbor very ill feelings toward President Obama.

Online Big Brother reports:

On Caleb’s Instagram account “insain_physique” about 20 months ago he made some extremely disturbing comments. When these comments surfaced whoever is managing his account deleted his account in an attempt to destroy the evidence. His Instagram profile read “Caleb Reynolds 100% natural, Personal Trainer, fitness is my passion, GOD is my strength, heaven is my goal.”

One of Reynolds' comments read:

“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. You know it. Your just a democrat that wants that Muslim monkey in office. I’m done with you, your dismissed…

Also if you could see straight and wasn’t color blind the map if the US is completely red, thank god he only gets 4 more years. You and the other democrats will wish you never voted for him soon. Good job.”

Will his bigoted remarks receive some airtime, or will he keep them to himself (unlike last season's contestants)? Time will tell.
