Apparently during the live feeds, Frankie has told everyone who his sister is.

Are you kidding me? Are you really kidding me right now? Tiny Dancer wins the son of a b.... by himself. Why? Why does this happen to me?

Perhaps I misremembered.

In the end, it was easier for one person to control both sides by himself. Donny and Zach panicked when Frankie started pulling ahead. It's funny how Zach tried the single player strategy but he didn't have the lower easier levels to practice on. He was trying to figure it out on the higher, more difficult ones and that wasted even more time.


It's funny how some people are complaining that production actually changed the BOTB challenge to something Frankie could win by himself when Caleb started saying he was going to sit it out. That football challenge set was huge and I'm sure they don't have 5 unused sets just ready to go at the drop of a hat.

Hey Caleb, the next time you want to throw a challenge, actually play in it and THROW it.

I was really surprised that none of the others, at any time, yelled to Caleb to get up & take his spot on the rope, once Frankie was gaining traction, to ensure Frankie lost ... ..

This was not shown on the BB show, but it seems that when Caleb said that he was not going to do the challenge, production asked him if he was quitting the challenge and once he said yes, he could not reenter it.

I suppose this whole GD episode will be all about tiny dancer. Great
And another thing, who gives a flying F who Ariana Grande is?
Never heard of her.
Get this clown voted out.

Perhaps I misremembered.

My guess is that one of the Producers (Or a "friend" of theirs) of Big Brother has a piece of Ariana Grande. This whole deal with Frankie is a backhanded way to promote her.

Don't be surprised if there will be an Ariana Grande musical special on CBS later in the summer.

This young chick is apparently already huge in the pop music world and has charted #1 songs. She's sung at the white house. It's actually promotion for CBS/BB having her brother on their show.

I literally have to put my hand in front of my face when the kid comes on the screen. I wish I could also mute the TV at the same time but then I wouldn't know when he's gone.

But will she last? She could easily just be another trend singer that vanishes into obscurity.

No. Each episode of Big Brother is seen by about 6,000,000 people in the US. Any act like her would KILL for that kind of free publicity. Hell, at the top of their game, national acts like Sheryl Crow have appeared on this show for the pub.

And upcoming movies have had advanced screenings as a reward in BB before. As far as Frankie and Ariana Grande is concerned, it works both ways. Non-pop music people who watch the show are now, at least, aware of AG's name, and I'm sure AG talks about her brother on BB, so there's exposure for the show to the younger crowd.


I hope that's not the only reason Frankie was cast.

Other than the fact he provides gay diversity I'd say his addition to the cast was very much stunt casting via name rec for all his sister's legion of teen fans.

Who knows. When they first announced the cast I didn't recognize his name (or his sister), but then when I saw a pic of her I remembered seeing her do one of the Friday concert series on the Today show last year. When I googled her yesterday and checked out her background I was a bit surprised. She seems like she may not be the standard teen flavor of the year girl and supposedly has four octave range and appears to have major musicians supporting her. And she acts, writes plays, etc as well... I'm not a fan of that type of pop music myself but apparently they are calling her the "mini Mariah".

From a marketing perspective I wouldn't be surprised if Grande is a bigger draw than Crow right now. She's on the cover of Billboard magazine this month and it sounds like they expect her second album due out at the end of the month to debut at #1 . I do remember Sheryl singing Soak up the Sun or Steve McQueen or whatever it was on BB that year and I always figured she must have owed somebody a favor to show up because it seemed like major slumming it

Sounds like Tiny Dancer got himself in a little hot water. Google it.

I was not a fan either, but he was excellent at the various competitions. Conversely, Victoria is probably the worst player to have ever made it this far.

This has been the worst season. No big shake ups. One alliance has kept control the whole time and noone tried to stir things up. It wasn't even worth it to watch the shows. I just read the occasional updates on one of those BB blogs.


Also, I think the producers thought they struck gold with Frankie. They were probably hoping he was going to be the flamboyant, outrageous, fun gay guy that everybody loved or loved to hate this season, but he turned out to be a spoiled, entitled, arrogant, malicious douche.
