Tonight on the Big Brother 16 Live Feeds, Frankie Grande was told that his grandfather had passed away last night. News broke of Frankie’s loss early this morning as many Big Brother fans learned from Ariana Grande, Frankie’s famous sister. As word spread many fans wondered whether or not Frankie would be told and if Frankie would quit Big Brother.

According to Ariana, their grandfather did not want Frankie to have to leave the competition if anything happened to him. As such we did not anticipate Frankie receiving the news. Apparently that plan changed as Frankie got word from his family.

Tonight on the Live Feeds Frankie received a letter in the Diary Room informing on his grandfather’s death. Frankie returned with the letter to the living room and the Houseguests gathered around him to provide support as he shared the news. Flashback to 4:59PM BBT 7/23. Free Trial for the Feeds.

Frankie announced that he will not be leaving the game. He said his family wanted him to stay and play and he would do just that. Frankie is going to stay on Big Brother 16.

Everyone was very supportive and came together for a big hug with Frankie at the center. All except Caleb who slept through the whole thing. Oops.

Are you glad that Frankie Grande will remain on Big Brother this season? How do you think this might impact the game?
