Zankie On All Stars 2? - Thoughts & Realities
I think the likelihood of All Stars 2 being BB17 is increasing as CBS preps for who they can bring back onto the show. It may seem like they would want to give themselves one more season or so for a few more players to pick from, but if BB17 isn’t AS2, it won’t be likely until BB20 or so until they toy with the idea considering BB18 will have to compete with the 2016 Summer Olympics during part of its run, which always hurts ratings.
So with Grodner hinting that AS2 is “very likely to happen soon”, it seems BB17 could be AS2. Now, would they ask Frankie back? I think to many people’s worries, they obviously would. Despite some people’s dislike of Frankie as one-half of Zach, the pair will basically be with CBS for a while.
Not only is Zach well-liked, but he helps soften Frankie amongst BB fans, while Frankie brings in a different fandom. AS2 will likely act as Frankie’s redemption act in the way BB13 turned Rachel from one of the most hated HGs to a Big Brother legend. No matter what their relationship is or isn’t, Zach has basically found himself as the Brendon to Frankie’s Rachel. CBS has been aiming for a gay showmance for years now and they’re not going to let one go now that it’s popped up out of nowhere.
I wouldn’t be shocked if they are touted out on Amazing Race, as well, with Frankie also seeing a guest spot for himself ever-so-often on The Talk.
