One of the most intriguing additions to the Big Brother 16 cast this year is gay YouTube personality Frankie J. Grande. Not only does Frankie, 31, already have his dedicated fan following for his crazy YouTube videos, but he also happens to be the brother of actress and pop singer Ariana Grande.
We’ve had YouTube personalities on the show in the past, like Wil Heuser of Big Brother 14. We’ve also had siblings of semi-famous people, like Willie Hantz, also of Big Brother 14. Frankie Grande, however, brings a whole new level of pre-existing fandom to the table as a contestant on BB16. Not only is he a much more well-known YouTuber than Wil, he also has the backing of his sister’s massive legion of supporters.
