Big Brother 16: Derrick Levasseur’s Grandfather Dies, Right After Frankie Grande’s
You’re meant to expect the unexpected on Big Brother, but no one would ever predict that two BB16 Houseguests would lose their grandfathers within days, prompting two quarantine breaks in the house. Wow.
Within days of Big Brother telling Frankie Grande that his (and Ariana Grande's) grandfather had died, it was revealed that Derrick Levasseur’s own grandfather had passed away.
On Friday's July 25 live feeds, Derrick was given a note about his late grandfather. (In a bittersweet twist, Derrick had thrown the Head of Household competition on Thursday, so Frankie could see a photo of his grandfather in the HOH room.)
Derrick, like Frankie, plans to stay in the game. He and Jocasta Odom prayed together late Friday night, and Derrick said production is allowing him to film a video in the diary room for his family back home. Hopefully this is the last of the tragic announcements. Condolences to both Derrick and Frankie. What a week...
Meanwhile, the show must go on, and you can check out spoilers here on the official HOH, his nominees, and what happens next in the Power of Veto competition.
Watch Big Brother Season 16 Sundays and Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET and Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET on CBS.
