Frankie Grande is an activist, host, performer, producer, reality TV personality and social media mogul. He became known to the world when he launched his successful Youtube channel in 2012 and more recently, as a stand-out finalist on the hit CBS series, BIG BROTHER 16. Frankie followed that as a judge on the 2015 season of MTV's America's Best Dance Crew and as a houseguest on CELEBRITY BIG BROTHER in the U.K. From 2016-2017, he co-hosted Style Code Live, an interactive fashion and shopping show that streamed live on Amazon.com. His guest-starring roles on Nickelodeon's HENRY DANGER and Netflix's Haters Back Off have shown that he continues to be a fan favorite. Frankie can next be seen reprising the role of Franz in Rock of Ages (Hollywood). The show, which is a fully immersive experience, will open this December at a specially built performance venue and nightlife destination on Hollywood Boulevard named after the venue at the center of the show, The Bourbon Room. Frankie just released his new single "I Got Me", and debuted the music video on the gaming platform TWITCH to coincide with the launch of his brand new gaming channel with his boyfriend, Hale Leon.

Frankie has also starred on Broadway as Franz in the closing cast of Rock of Ages, and made his debut with the mega-hit, Mamma Mia! As a producer, he has worked with shows on Broadway including Hamlet, La Bete and Born Yesterday, as well as Brooke Shields at Feinstein's, and his own one-man show, Livin' La Vida Grande. His philanthropic work includes co-founding the nonprofit arts organization "Broadway in South Africa" and working with buildOn, for which he was awarded their Global Impact Award. Frankie is currently devoting much of his time and energy to supporting the Los Angeles LGBT Center, causes that support the LGBTQ+ community and HIV/AIDS research and awareness.
