Frankie Grande

Age: 31
Hometown: Boca Raton, Fla.
Current City: New York, N.Y.
Occupation: YouTube Personality
Three adjectives that describe you: Sparkly, charismatic and unreserved.
Favorite Activities: Biking, swimming, twerking, doing impersonations and making funny videos with my friends!
What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the Big Brother house:  Being disconnected. I think I would love it for a week or even two, but eventually I would start to go into Twitter withdrawal.
Do you have a strategy for winning Big Brother?: I am going to be the happy likable person that everyone wants to keep around in the beginning, but I will be good at competitions. I will use the HOH’s that I win to make everyone want to be on my side.
Which past Big Brother cast member did you like most: I love Britney; she was likable, aggressive, manipulative and entertaining.
What are you afraid of: Spiders, ever since one almost killed me.  I am totally fine with insects though because I studied entomology in college.
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of: Helping a student. One of my students came out to me and admitted that he was thinking about taking his life until he met me. He called me his angel who showed him the path to life.
Finish this sentence: My life’s motto is… Shine bright like a Frankie.
What would you take into the house and why: 1. Ariana’s music, because she is my best friend and inspires me to keep working and persevering. Also, I LOVE HER MUSIC! 2. My kindle with all of the Harry Potter books loaded on it. 3. An endless supply of grande double dirty iced soy chai lattes in venti cups with extra ice.
What would you do if Big Brother made you famous: Exactly what I am doing, but hopefully on an even bigger scale with worldwide reach, bigger shows and bigger tours.

Frankie is a former Broadway actor who is now a popular YouTube sensation ( with over 175,000 subscribers and nearly 10,000,000 views.  His sister is the multi-platinum selling pop singer Ariana Grande.

    Has anyone else heard that his mother has asked just about everyone she knows to vote for Frankie to win America’s Favorite Player? CBS should NOT allow this.

    Frankie belongs in the NYC mental hospital, grabbing other men and talking of raping women, he is one sick P>O>S>. I wouldn’t trust him around my daughter for a second, or my son for that matter.

    He is the type of gay person that other gay guys hate. Gay guys don’t want everyone to think that they wear glitter and dye they hair pink.

    When are they going to get a respectable decent person to represent the gay community?,no! they have these effeminate flamboyant flamer types prancing around the house, fakeness drips from this guy like a leaky fawcett, he probably had to pay for all of his fans, and I find his ability to go far in Hollywood limited because of his unattractive, uncharismatic appearance, the only thing I think he would be cast for is if they did a remake or sequel to “The Birdcage”

      It is true what you say.

      But if CBS was to cast a guy who is gay, but on the quiet side, who dowsn’t act flamboyant like Frankie and others from seasons past, then the gay community will cimplain to cbs that there isn’t any gay representation.

      It seems like they are stuck casting the mandatory attention grabbing gay or else they will be called out for being discriminatory.

    Just a self absorbed jerk He takes to much joy in screwing people over the way lieing and backstabbing came so natural to him I think the votes here is more of a sign of what most peopl think of him

    I completely dislike Frankie. I really don’t want to see him win anything.

    However, he has been one of the best players since day one, so he will probably find a way to piss me off further by making it to the final two.

    I was assuming this person was not on jury. But you may be right, they will go and shortly after the first DE person will go to the jury house.

    As of 7/4/14, Frankie is the only interesting person in the house. Don’t know why he has that many thumbs down.

        I have lots of gay friends and family members. He is an ass! Sad times and hard times are coming. Pride comes before the fall Frankie. You need to make it right with Zach. And leave him along!!!!!

        Yo mom it sounds like your jealous of him because he has a good heart and you just can’t see it thru your blinders. Maybe you have issues. Thats sad

        I’m gay and I CAN’T stand him! He’s way too loud and annoying. He is a very vile person that thinks very highly of himself. He needs to go!

      I don’t know why either, Holly. But I will never forget (or forgive) Caleb for refusing to team up with Frankie in that two-person challenge where Caleb sat on the sidelines and watched as Frankie single-handedly won the competition. So hooray for Frankie. Brother, I was cheering you on and was thrilled when you pulled it off. For my money, I would have bet that the final two would be Derrick and Frankie; those two are the best players in the house.
