Frankie & Cody talk America's Favorite and the Ariana Factor
I'll see your Ariana and raise you a Bieber..
Much has been said this season about the hopelessness of getting America's Favorite money, especially since Frankie told the HGs about his sister. Well, Justin Bieber just upped the ante. Let's take Ariana's meager 18.5M, which is nearly double the estimated viewership of the show, and raise it by Justin's 54.5M.

**Granted, neither of these tweets are relative to America's Favorite, and twitter users are significantly less likely to click or call or do anything than people on facebook or actual sites, but the numbers are astounding, and in the case of tween celebrity twitter followers, all the stats go out the window.
Do I fault her for supporting her brother? Absolutely not. I honestly love the mutual love and support between them..
Not knowing anything about this latest development, here's what Frankie had to say on the subject Saturday afternoon.
Frankie: I just hope that the amount of awareness I'm getting, if I don't win, will be enough to build a school.. You know what I'm saying? If I walk away with no money, then I have nothing to build a school. You know what I'm saying?
Cody: Yeah. The people..
Frankie: Yeah. I have no way of building a school, unless I get at least something.
Cody: Ya know what I was thinkin'? If I was in your shoes, .. or if I was your sister, and my brother was in somewhere, I'd be like, there's an America's Favorite Player.. I guarantee, if your sister tweeted out like.. Like, if you're not in the final 2, and your sister tweeted out like, "Oh, you can win tickets for.."
Frankie: She would never do that.
Cody: I mean, not.. It would help you. I would do it. To win my f'in brother money.
Frankie: No.. People would look at that as.. unfair.
Cody: Life's not fair.
Cody: We're playing Big Brother. There's a Rewind Button. There's Buybacks.
Frankie: No.. She wouldn't do that. If I win America's Favorite Player, it's because I won America's Favorite Player. It's not because my sister's Ariana Grande.
***♫whatever gets you through the night..
Frankie: Like.. Also, as I've said before, the fans of this show are not my fans and they're not her fans, and they vote a lot. If she tweets about it, that's fine, but if she puts some sort of incentive with it?
Frankie: That's weird.
Frankie: I totally expect her to at least tweet about it.
Frankie: For sure.
