Big Brother Star Zach Rance Comes Out As Bisexual

Big Brother star Zach Rance has come out as bisexual and revealed that he once hooked-up with castmate Frankie Grande…

Zach Rance has opened up about his sexual orientation for the first time. The Big Brother Season 16 alum was a guest on “Mental Health Collection and With Love, Alexa” and opened up about his journey to accepting his bisexuality after growing close to Big Brother castmate Frankie Grande during filming. During the interview Rance said that he had considered himself heterosexual before the reality show and meeting Grande but since hooking up, he has come to identify as bisexual.

“I’ve been straight my entire life, I’ve only liked women,” Rance said. “But on Big Brother, Frankie and I got super, super close. I fell in love with who he was as a person. Super funny, super smart. Good looking guy. As time went on, we got so close that I wasn’t really sure if I had feelings for him or not. You know, I’ve always been straight so it was never a thing [for me] to like guys.”

The two eventually explored “a relationship that was more that just friends” after season 16 ended, which Rance found confusing.

“He was the first guy that I ever hooked up with. After that night, I was very unsure about the direction of my sexuality because I like women,” he said. “And after we hooked up, I was very uncertain about what was my next move.”

Rance even questioned the kind of guys he would be interested in and wondered if his feelings for Grande were just a result of the duo being “really close.” Eventually, he hooked up with another guy he met at a photo shoot. At the time, however, he couldn’t quite put a finger on how he felt about pursuing a romantic relationship with a man.

“The more I thought about being with a guy … you know, making out is one thing. But doing more than making out with a guy is something that I just don’t want to do and I’d never tried it,” he said. “But I just want to come out and say that I enjoyed hooking up with Frankie and the other guy I hooked up with, clearly I enjoyed it.”

Now, Rance is secure in his identity and hopes that being “transparent” about his sexuality can provide a positive example to fans who might be going through a similar journey.

“We try not to label anything, you know, gender is super fluid. So it’s hard for me to say I’m straight. I’m not gay either,” he said. “I just wanted to come out and say that and be transparent and come out and say [that] I am bisexual, even though I do lean more toward heterosexuality. But I just wanted to clear the air on that. … I want to inspire other people to — maybe not experiment, I don’t know if that’s the right word. But to just be more open-minded because you can fall in love with someone’s mind, you can fall in love with someone’s heart. … You don’t have to just be attracted to the way they look.”
