Big Brother contestant Frankie Grande, of the Boca Raton Missile Boob Grandes, came out as a Frankie Grande on last night's episode of the show. After being called out as a liar, he revealed to his male castmates that he is the brother of Ariana, a YouTuber, a "TV star," and "a social media mogul."
In a moment that was supposed to be a confession of sorts, however, Frankie found a lot of room for more lying. (A quintessential Big Brother maneuver, to be sure.)
Frankie is a YouTuber, yes, and one who celebrates the proud tradition of Topless Tuesday. But his claim that he has 1.5 million followers, either on YouTube or Twitter, is pure bull. Even combined, you don't really get close — 711,000 Twitter followers; 271,000 on YouTube. That also somewhat invalidates his argument that he's a "social media mogul," to the extent that one could ever validate or invalidate a phrase as squishy and meaningless as "social media mogul." And TV star? Not exactly.
He is the brother of Ariana Grande, though. He nailed that one. And that did him approximately no good.
"My sister is a mega, mega pop star," Frankie told his housemates, who were probably expecting to hear him say his real last name was Spears. "What's my last name? Grande?"
"Amanda?" housemate Derrick guessed.
