Zankie was an alliance formed by Zach Rance and Frankie Grande. It is unclear whether both members were completely loyal to the other. They have agreed on a Final Two deal, however it was uncertain whether both members planned on staying true to their word and taking the other to the end. The alliance was referenced in the BB Supercomputer challenge in Big Brother 20.



First Downfall

Following the double eviction on Day 49, it appears that Zach no longer trusts Frankie after learning that Frankie is not true to their alliance. On Day 51, Zankie appeared to have made up, however, Zach revealed to other houseguests and in his Diary Room sessions that he no longer trusts Frankie. On Day 51, Zach won the Power of Veto after having been nominated by Christine Brecht.

During week 6, Frankie was going to vote to evict Zach, but after being persuaded by Caleb Reynolds not to, he voted to evict Jocasta Odom. After the double eviction, Zach told Nicole Franzel about The Detonators and Nicole told him that Frankie and Christine Brecht were going to flip. This caused Zach to lose trust in Frankie. On day 50, the two got into a major argument, but "made up" the next day, despite Zach saying he no longer trusted Frankie. During week 8, Frankie remained Head of Household after the Battle of the Block competition. When Frankie won POV later in the week, he used it on Caleb and put Zach up as the replacement nominee, and has stated that he wanted him out.
