I worked with him a bit through Broadway in South Africa. Seems like a fun/nice guy.

Won't be watching though. Death to reality TVVVV

You could've just referred to him as "Ariana Grande's brother." She's huge, if my teenage niece and her friends are any indication.

He's very talented himself. And the love and pride he has for his sister makes me like them both even more.

Teenage girls made her a big star after she played Cat in the Nickelodeon shows Victorious and Sam & Cat. The she toured as the opening act for Justin Bieber.

She got her start on Broadway, in the musical 13.

She and her brother started an organization called Broadway in South Africa.

Here she is, earlier this year, at the White House. Sasha and Maliya apparently are fans.

I feel like she is going to be the next Mariah Carey. That girl has a set of pipes!

We only saw the first half of the cast tonight, but if you locked me in a house with any of them (even Mr. Grande) you'd absolutely have to remove the knives and forks first.

You New Yorkers are well represented by "Pow-Pow", a "NY d.j." who dresses like a stripper and had to count on her fingers to figure out how many years separate the ages of 23 and 27 (I kid you not!). She immediately formed an "all-grrrrl" alliance which in turn freed her up to ogle and flirt with the hunky soccer player. I'm sure her desperate stalking was a stratagem to conceal her alliance, because we've never seen a secret girl alliance go south on BB before.

^ NYC is also represented by Frankie too. I actually really liked him- but i had to search to see how old he was because he looked a lot older then he sounded. He's 28, but i would have guessed a little older. LOL But i love any guy who has hair as big as mine!

^ I'm sure Frankie will be very entertaining and I have no reason to think he's a bad person.

I just think so much "performance" 24/7 would be a lot to take in confinement.

Frankie said he was 28 on the show but his CBS bio says he's 31. I still think he's actually older.

I think so too- he looks older, especially in the face. I love him, but every time i see him, he reminds me of that Chihuahua Dog Tito in Oliver and Company.

Race ain't go nothing to do with it. It's the dog's appearance (design) not his ethnicity that reminds me of him.

I'm not such a huge fan of Ariana's new music but I used to be a fan. She has a good voice but her music is becoming too mainstream. I liked her first single Put Your Hearts Up (which she hates apparently) and her covers of Die In Your Arms, Vienna and Only Girl In The World.

Her debut album had some good songs like Tattooed Heart and Piano.

I don't like Problem very much at all...

Frankie's a good entertainer. He's hilarious and you can't keep your eyes off him when he's in the room. That should be some good fun.

Is Broadway In South Africa still happening. I found this quite interesting because I live in South Africa. We have a lot of poverty in SA (given) but if you have money, you an afford a really nice lifestyle here. No one here really knows about BSA though. Maybe if it was marketed better here, you could get some funding locally as well.

@FineByDesign I almost forgot to mention but you asked if you think she's an Elphaba movie contender and that reminded me (though this is more of a Galinda song) about the fact that her and Mika made a modern version of Popular Song. She did well.

I do agree though. She would make a really good Elphaba.
