Show premiers Tuesday, Aug. 18
YouTube sensation and “Big Brother 16” star Frankie Grande spoke to SFGN last week about his upcoming show, “WORST.POST.EVER: With Frankie Grande.” The one time special premiers Tuesday, August 18 at 9 p.m. on Oxygen.
It will showcase Grande as he breaks down the buzziest online posts, tweets and selfies from Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and other social media outlets.
“It’s going to be a fun and exciting journey through social media. It’s a perfect fit for me,” he said. “I’m also going to create some of my own crazy ridiculous posts. Poking fun at some other posts people put online. It’s going to be fun and Frankie and fabulous.”
Grande also has a promise for fans.
“There will be glitter involved,” he said.
He’s most excited about the stuff he creates on the show such as his own Frankie app.
“I’ll be ranting about the worst celebrity apps but creating my own at the same time,” he said.
There will be a whole segment dedicated to gifs.
During the special fans will be encouraged to use hashtag #WorstPostEver.
“You better tune in. It’s going to be really fantastic,” he said. “I’m really excited for everyone to see the show.”
Grande has had a busy couple of summers. Besides WORST.POST.EVER he’s also a judge on America’s Best Dance Crew, which just premiered. Last summer he was locked away in the Big Brother house. He told SFGN he’d gladly go back for a Big Brother all-stars edition.
Keeping so busy has left little time for love.
“Oh my God. I’m so single,” he said. “I’m married to my work at the moment.”
Grande grew up in Boca Raton and still has a residence there. He often comes back to get away and relax. Some of favorite local spots include Town Center Mall, Atlantic Ave., Las Olas and the Boca Beach Club.
