Big Brother Season 16 cast member Zach Rance is publicly coming out as bisexual. 

During a virtual mental health event with the With Love, Alexa YouTube channel, the reality TV personality opened up about his sexuality, his palpable chemistry with fellow contestant, YouTuber, and Ariana Grande's older brother Frankie Grande, and how the two even had a fling after he "fell in love with" Frankie. 

"I’ve been straight my entire life, I’ve only liked women," Zach said, as reported by Us Weekly. "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."

He continued: 

"He [Frankie] 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. And after we hooked up, I was very uncertain about what was my next move."

Eventually, Zach was able to explore and accept his bisexuality. 

"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."

Congrats on living your truth, Zach! Welcome to the fam!
