Ariana Grande’s Big Brother Joins ‘Big Brother’ Castby Mandi Salerno | PopCrush
The Grande family is apparently full of stars! Ariana Grande’s big brother Frankie Grande is following in her spotlighted footsteps and joining the cast of ‘Big Brother’ for its 16th season.
You might recognize Frankie from his YouTube channel, or the few times he’s walked a red carpet with his half-sis Ariana. Soon he’ll be hitting your TV screen, where he’ll be battling 15 other contestants to win the $500,000 prize.
The 16 housemates were introduced today (June 19) when CBS posted the cast photos. The pink-haired 31-year-old is sporting a striped button-up and a smirk for his pictorial debut. (The smirk has us wondering what his ‘BB’ house strategy will be.)
Ariana tweeted her congratulations to Frankie shortly after the photos were shared. It’s obvious who she’ll be rooting for this season!
