We’re just a week into Big Brother 16 and already it’s looking like we have our first showmance — and it’s probably not who you thought it would be. Turns out Frankie Grande — Ariana Grande’s brother — and Zach Rance are getting pretty tight these days, cuddling pretty much all the time.

If you’re scratching your head at this duo, you’re not alone. When Zach — a 23-year-old recent college grad from Florida — moved into the house on Day 2 (Frankie was a part of the first group to move into the house), he seemed to have a lot of friction with the 31-year-old YouTube personality. But from what the other houseguests have been saying, it seems like it was love lust at first sight.

The live feeds picked up an interesting conversation between Brittany Martinez and Cody Calafiore in which they discussed how Zach had eyes for Frankie the minute he walked into the house.


“I will tell you this, and I will not… Please don’t say anything. I swear to God, because I will know it was you,” Cody threatened Brittany before spilling the beans. “I’ve not told anyone ‘cause I’ve, like, kept this in. But [Zach] came up to me when we were at the [cast] photo thing, Zach did, and he was like, ‘Bro, bro, I wanna f—k Frankie.’ I was like, ‘What?!’”

Brittany seemed to agree, saying she had experienced something similar that same day. “At the photo thing he [Zach] walked up to Frankie and was, like, staring him up and down,” she said. “He’s all, ‘You’re making my d—k hard. You’re turning me on.’”

Hmm, with Brittany and Cody’s stories seeming to support each other, it sounds as if there’s something going on between Zach and Frankie — but it wasn’t until they were caught hugging and cuddling (not once, not twice, but three times) that we really started to believe that something was up. If you want to see all their adorable moments (from just the first week) in one video, see here:

We’re not too sure what to believe at this point — if this is any real attraction or just boredom in the house — but we’re pretty excited by it. Not only would this be the first same-sex showmance in the Big Brother house, but it could also be a great alliance. Zach could easily be playing Frankie in attempts to further himself in the game, but only time will tell. We’ll definitely be keeping our eye on these two!
