Ariana Grande's Brother Claims He Fell In Love On Big Brother… But Anyone Who Watched The Show Should Know Otherwise

The latest season of Big Brother has come to an end, and with it, much of the cast trying to stay relevant now that they're out of the house.

Fittingly, one of the bigger plot lines of the summer is still getting some headlines!

Said story is of the budding bromance-turned-romance between houseguests Zach Rance and Ariana Grande's brother.

Fans quickly latched on to the straight-and-gay relationship, and even adopted the name "Zankie" for the pair.

And now that the season is over, Ariana's brother spoke to People Magazine about their romance, saying:

"I am just now seeing some of the footage and there is no doubt that we love each other. I felt it in the house but I didn't realize how ridiculous it looks to everyone else because we are a couple. It's very strange. It's unbelievable."

However, the latter half of Zankie decided to eliminate his "best friend" in the house, something someone truly in love probably wouldn't do.

We think Ariana's brother is just bummed that he's not a very well liked contestant and is hitching his annoying horse to Zach's awesome wagon so that they can be on The Amazing Race together.

But don't worry, brother of Ariana, Zach totally has a chance of being on TAR next season… just with fan-favorite Donny Thompson as his partner, not you.

    I LOOOOOVE that you don't use his name, but call him AG's brother. Thats so perfect

  2. Robin (SinCityKitty) says – reply to this


    lol I watched the whole season and the live feeds, you are right about taking Donny instead of Frankie lol xoxox

  3. Julie says – reply to this


    This article is amazing and awesome and lovely and true. Thanks for it.

  4. LAGIRL says – reply to this


    It must run in the family because I hear that Ariana Grande is a pain in the ass (DIVA) and not a lot of people care for her.. Poor Parents..

    Re: Melissa Perkey – HAHAHA I agree! SO awesome

  6. Kerr says – reply to this


    Frankie declared his love for Zach in the DR and whispered to himself on the live feeds he was in love with Zach. Stop hating on Frankie! He took actions in the game that were mistakes because he didn't fully trust Zach but it was always clear he and Zach had a deep connection. There wouldn't be Zankie as the story of the summer without both Zach and Frankie. Zankie for Amazing Race!

  7. Rob says – reply to this


    Best read yet! And so dead on!

  8. Sasha says – reply to this


    You are a DOUCHE…Frankie and the rest of his family are much more relevant then your career. Maybe one day you will find a real job as a reporter but I doubt it and find some happiness you are filled with so much hate its unbecoming :)

  9. ellen says – reply to this


    Thank you for speaking the truth! This guy is a COMPLETE DOUCHEBAG! He at one point said he wanted to "EUTHANIZE" Zach. How's that for love?

  10. Mystic says – reply to this


    Skankie's 15 minutes of fame are over.Time for him to crawl back under his rock!

  11. ellen says – reply to this


    Re: Sasha – in no way shape or form is Frankie relevant. Far from it

  12. Ariana Grande - meh says – reply to this


    LOVE LOVE LOVE the entry Perez! This is just a perfectly concise way to summarize the situation:

    "We think Ariana's brother is just bummed that he's not a very well liked contestant and is hitching his annoying horse to Zach's awesome wagon so that they can be on The Amazing Race together."

  13. sarah tidwell says – reply to this


    The funniest part is that Perez's whole life is about being irrelevant enough to have to use others to make himself relevant! Meta much? Or maybe it's that on The Talk, Perez had a few seconds to talk about himself, while Frankie's segment centered on himself.
    aaaw poor shriveled raisin Perez. Oh well, here's your 10 cents for a view and comment.

    Frankie says, "You're welcome."

  14. Loo says – reply to this


    Thank you for this sooooooooo much. It's spot on. Love how you refer to him as AG's brother(as said below). I just.. great job. Really :)

  15. Mike says – reply to this


    The fans didn't coin the name 'Zankie' if you had even watched the feeds, you would know that Frankie and Zach came up with the name themselves.

  16. Mike says – reply to this


    Re: Loo – Perez is just bitter because Zach had a straight guy attracted to him and Perez can't even get a gay man to give him a second look :)

  17. Sue says – reply to this


    Zonny for TAR!

  18. bish whet says – reply to this


    someone didn't watch the live feeds….

  19. Sasha says – reply to this


    Re: ellen – LMAO just by everybody mentioning his name he will stay relevant…it takes so much energy to hate learn to love😘 Oh and he will always be more relevant then any other BB cast member just keep an eye on his career 😱

  20. Zonny for TAR! says – reply to this


    Ariana's half brother was the biggest Zach hater in the house. This article is 100% accurate. Never forget.. "Frankie.. you're disgusting"

  21. Addie says – reply to this


    Re: Rob – never want to see Frankie ever again.

  22. JessicaAsulio says – reply to this


    Perez you are trash, so is this blog and you are single-handedly more hated in the BB fandom than Frankie will ever be, you are an embarrassment to journalism, if that's what you want to call this

  23. jan says – reply to this


    I see the Troll is still following in his sisters shadows. What a creep….I too watched all of BB16 and BBAD…..I think Donny and Zach teaming up would be great. The Troll talked about going on Survivor….right…what a delusional loser he is.

  24. Betty says – reply to this


    I would lve a zonny team on TAR aka zach/donny. I will never watch arianas brother on tv again…Have had my fill of him and his famedom.

  25. Britt says – reply to this


    I would love to see Zonny on Amazing Race! I think the people spoke when Frankie wasn't even in the top 3 vote getters for America's Favorite. Zach and Donny all the way!

  26. KD says – reply to this


    Your obsession with the Grande's is borderline psychopathic. Please seek help. (P.S. Anyone who watched the 24/7 live feeds and understands the concept of the GAME, obviously not you, knows that Frankie was in love with him.) Stay pressed. Stay jealous. Stay ugly.

  27. Margaret says – reply to this


    clearly you do not watch big brother.. if you saw any of the post bb interviews zach said frankie is his best friend he wants to do the amazing race with him.. frankie evicted zach for gameplay reasons and if you watched the season you ll see that the week frankie evicted him he was saying he was targeting frankie.. many people have evicted loved ones.. neda and john for example (who are still dating).. your hatred against the grandes is transparent I am sincerely sorry some of arianas fans threatened your son he is cute af and I to would be pissed and defensive about it but its time to let it go she didnt do anything she never asked anyone to attack you or say those things so bye felicia

    Let's get constructive and talk about Derrick Levasseur the winner or Cody Calafiore who was the second place winner and the man that America can clearly state whose LOYALTY cannot be bought. If we are going to talk about F. Grande let's see if he followed through with the promise to build a school with the money he won. Let's question why on national tv F. Grande stated that his viewer age level is approx.. 12 years old and yet both him and Ariana sing Tit songs together for Christmas. Let’s talk bout Caleb Reynolds, who served this Country proudly and regardless of who helped talk him into it ..Caleb got the job done of booting Grande’s butt out! Or let’s talk about the video F. Grande put up showing his welcome home by children. Now stop the frame an look at the reflection in his glasses and you can see the production team standing behind. BB Fans are NOT STUPID and even when someone throws Glitter in our Eyes ..we see quite clearly!

  29. jamie says – reply to this


    Oh, Margaret. Trust me, we watched the live feeds. Frankie hated on Zach non-stop from week 2 on. He never had any respect for him, trashed him to anyone who'd listen, made up blatant lies about him, and plotted against him for weeks. That ain't love. He's only latching onto Zach now because he knows Zach is more popular than he is.

  30. Beth says – reply to this


    Donny is a total sweetheart, but I'd rather see sweet and beautiful, so how about Zach & Cody for TAR?

  31. rachel says – reply to this


    Did you even watch the show? Or the feeds? Maybe research before you write this crap.

  32. Jennerific713 says – reply to this


    I love you for not giving that irrelevant douchebag any recognition and using the moniker "Ariana's brother" as his title. As any fan knows, that's all he is. Zach was the star and as FF (Fuck Frankie) is certainly accustom by now, he is riding in Zach's shadow the same way he rides in Ariana's. As far as any relationship, no such luck. Zach is straight. But leave it to FF to try and sponge of Zach's popularity. He's a pro!!

  33. Gabby says – reply to this


    LOVE THIS!!!!!

  34. Leesha says – reply to this


    Re: LAGIRL – her mom is a total diva too, worse then them, lol she like started calling out fans saying she's not different then anyone else & can make tweets for her son to get Americas favourite. L

  35. Emilia says – reply to this


    YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAS PEREZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  36. Riley says – reply to this


    Ewww you wouldn't know about there romance unless you watched the show .. Stop hating you douche and he has a name ITS FRANKIE

  37. Amber says – reply to this


    To all of you calling Perez "irrelevant"….on behalf of Perez, thank you for reading his "irrelevant" blog. Idiots.
    Thank you Perez for giving voice to all of us who suffered through our favorite summertime show while Ariana's brother soiled it for us. This is dead on!

  38. Al S says – reply to this


    How petty & pathetic and typical Perez Hilton to never call the most memorable Big Brother house guest ever by his name, FRANKIE GRANDE! Jealous much, Perez? lol (Her claws are out.) lol
    Of course people who just met in a house of strangers and know each other for 2 seconds would get rid of someone detrimental to his game even if he was falling in love with him.
    Yes, Zankie fans want to see Zach with Donny on TAR. You're so smart Perez.

  39. bb16fan says – reply to this


    Re: Al S – as a huge fan of the show and a live feeder. Most of us hated him. If you were a fan, you would also know that. Perez got this dead on. Frankie loves publicity and he isnt giving it to him at all.

  40. Maci says – reply to this


    Maybe it was Cody–think Cody fell for him too.

  41. Leah says – reply to this


    This is complete and utter BULLSHIT. Anyone whos ever watched Big Brother know that It.Is.Just.A.Motherfucking.Game. So get over it!. They are trying to win half a million dollars you idiot. So of course he had to make moves that were good for his game, that would lead him closer to that half a million. I'm not saying he made the right choice in evicting Zach. Because personally I LOVE Zach. He made the choice that seemed good for HIS game. So get your head out of you fucking ass and face facts. Also fans didn't make the ship name 'Zankie'. Zach and Frankie did, if you had watched the live feeds or even the episode where they made the ship name then you'd know. So shut the fuck up and stop spewing shit that you don't even know about. Zankie Forever. Zankie for Amazing Race bitches!! :) .

    Re: Loo – Perez Hilton has accomplished more that YOU will accomplish in your lame pathetic life!

  43. Lee says – reply to this


    People seem to be forgetting that Zach & Frankie had convos about talking shit about ea other to everyone else, part of strategy for their games. F never actually hated Z, ever, he was frustrated w/him at times cause he was dangerous for his game but his comments were part of the game. And F was not gunning for Z since wk 2, during wk 2 F felt betrayed for like a day and wanted Z out during that time but they cleared the air & after that he protected Z, talk about getting him out after was to get a read on others. Don't you know how the game is played? Wk of double evict F was manipulated into losing all trust for Z and agreeing to vote him out. He tried to protect him at first, then took all the blame cause he didn't realize how fooled he had been. All else snowballed from there. And F is not using Z for anything post BB, he doesn't need to, he genuinely cares about Z and I hope they do more stuff together bc they have great chemistry & are hilarious.

    Re: bb16fan – As a huge fan of the show and live feeder then you must know the chemistry and magic betwixt Zach and Donny. LMFAO Yup, Perez got it "dead on" alright. What a duo Zach and Donny would be on TAR. Forget that both Frankie AND Zach have said they want to do TAR together, I'm sure Zach would be thrilled to race around the world with backwoods, redneck Donny. LOL
    BTW, every hg ever to be on BB loves publicity. Do you ever listen to their exit interviews and future goals?
    The biggest nobody and talentless hack who seeks and loves any publicity is Perez Hilton, who rides on the coattails of anybody famous he can gossip about.

  45. JMO says – reply to this


    Oh I can't stand the arrogance of Frankie! He thought he was the BB all time favorite player. He got worse after he came out in the house. You know… Him being a huge online mogul & his sister a Huge pop star. Love how NO ONE cared! and the lie about the Africa schools?? I hope he never gets anything else on TV & has to follow little sis dancing behind the stage.

  46. Lori says – reply to this


    Donny and Zach would be awesome on the Amazing Race.
    Zankie is fake. Just like Danielle and Shawn from BB15 and Will and Janelle from All Stars.
    Time for some people to go watch youtube and see what really happened in the BB house this summer. CBS didn't show the truth.

  48. CJ says – reply to this


    YASSSSSS. Frankie is a joke. The only reason he got on that show was because of his sister, who is actually doing something with her career. He's kicking 30 and still doesn't have a stable career.
