This site is about the Big Brother feeds and contains spoilers! It isn't necessarily thorough: it's what I catch and/or what interests me. It also isn't necessarily about who will win, who should win, who's cute or who's horrid. It's about watching hamsters: who's doing what and why, who's fun and who's dull. If they aren't entertaining, get rid of 'em! Thanks for encouraging my behavior.

Thursday, August 14 at 8pm: Live eviction, HOH comp, assorted out-of-sequence dramas

Westies can watch the air show live when it's on in the East at

Same story: Tuesday's show placed second with a 4.3 rating and 7 share, well behind the Olympics on NBC with 17.9/28.
Rating = % of all TV households
Share = % of households watching TV


Task 1: Who should Dan get nominated? Jessie/successful

Task 2: Who should Dan hug for 10 seconds? Jessie/successful

Task 3: Who should Dan vote to evict? Jessie/successful

Dan gets $20k if successful and not discovered. Apparently the previously-announced 4th task has evaporated. It's not clear whether all the 'Dan is America's Player' suspicions will invalidate him.

A chance of fights

Nominations on Friday, possibly food comp too

Veto comp on Saturday

The only remaining birthday is Dan's, September 1 - if he's still around then

Hopefully they'll get another shot at earning the grill.. it's waiting

    Breaking down

    The habitat, that is - not the hamsters, at least not today (so far)

    The faceplate off the cool color-changing wall graphic fell off.. the habitat breakdown usually starts small like this, but pretty soon chairs & beds will start breaking

    Jerry announced that this is Day 36, which set my teeth grinding.. no matter what they or CBS change the day count to, I'm not revising the site this time: it's Day 37

    It's also Wednesday, and that means the camera comes out along with hats, wigs, catsuits and the now-rare smiles.. Wednesday also means taping with Julie & Craig, and that sometimes brings some discomfort for them (and joy for us)

    They continue talking up how wildly popular they must be, saying the weekly "Late Late Show" pieces and the move to Thursdays indicate success, rather than the desperation likely indicated by both.. they also think they're doing well against the Olympics, but that isn't the case.. even many diehard feedsters are keeping up with the divers, swimmers, and tumblers as much or more than the hamsters, including me

    Dear Big Brother

    For all their talk about how great they are, this is becoming one of the dullest casts of all time - and that's saying something

    Ollie & April are doing their part, and the fights have been great but they don't come along often enough.. Brian & Steven's absence is felt more deeply every day, and things are getting desperate

    Dan spent a few minutes today running through an A to Z list to himself of things to do.. not only did he not do any of the things he rattled off, but he didn't even bother coming up with things that started with the letter he was on.. he's leading the way as far as horizontal hours per day: he's looking like he's going for BB5 Drew's record for sleeping through the game

    Jerry's doing so many CSI auditions each day, I keep wondering if someone should take his pulse.. Ollie lays around a great deal too, and April usually tags along there.. Memphis Bob is barely there.. Michelle is like listening to Charlie Brown's teacher.. Keesha & Renny are losing steam, and Libra's already checked out

    So please, Big Brother, have a little mercy on them and us.. we all know you're just interested in putting together your three primetime hours each week, and you don't really care much about their well-being or ours.. but we are your paying customers and we deserve a little consideration

    Give them a crafts night! And by that I'm thinking fond memories of gnomes, piñatas, and ceramic piggies - it doesn't have to figure into a comp - and I do not mean a couple cheesy $1.99 kits from the preschool aisle.. give them Monopoly! Give them Trivial Pursuit! Give them a deck of cards! Anything!! BOOZE!!!

    I know I have no reason to think you'd do me any favors, but if you could find it in your hearts, at the very least, please give them the grill

    Your pal,

    Sign up for the feeds, or we'll shoot this doggie

    Holly Poodle's already been through some traumatic experiences - note her little neck brace - but don't let it get worse for her: you'll have to live with that forever

    Yes, I realize this is something of a marketing faux pas, following the previous paragraph like it does, but I have faith they'll pick up the pace in there, sooner or later

    It's a lean season here at Hamsterwatch but I'm striving to make something out of nothing for your amusement - unlike some I could mention (cough-see above-cough)

    The SuperPass two week free trial is legit and not a gimmick.. plus if you sign up now and keep your feeds beyond the free 14 days, you can save $2 a month for life with coupon code BB10E0826.. you also get loads of other content plus free song downloads

    I know you probably won't admit you'd like to see Ollie & April go at it, so let me just close by saying the odds are that one or the other will be evicted before long, so act now

    A few more screencaps are in the forum, thanks to ABT

    Daily ratings - Cheeky monkeys edition

    Ratings are based on entertainment value

    Ups are Craig Ferguson's, who keeps proving himself to be our pal. Anyway, the feedmasters gave us fishies or bubbles WAY too much of the day again. Any regular 'Late Late Show' viewer knows Craig is the best Glaswegian export since Donovan, Gordon Jackson, Angus Young, and Billy Connolly, but it's still surprising that one of the highlights of most weeks lately is the five minute Wednesday segment on his show. When we've got 24 hours a day of feeds (give or take), we should be getting a whole lot more entertainment from them. And when I say entertainment, I'll take most anything short of comatose hamsters.

    Won: Designer clothes, $5k
    Immediately after taping the show, she said 'They didn't like the Afro'. There isn't much that many in there or out here do like about her lately, though I still think the fact that she wear stilettos every time she cooks is hilarious.

    Won: $20k (presumably)
    Yes, he was America's Player! Can we please move on to something else? Ideally, something that will keep him awake for more than an hour. In a perfect world, he'd win the HOH comp tomorrow and they'd all have to come crawling just as they did to Michelle last week.

    Won: $4k
    Sure, he's been a very grouchy old man lately, but that's his role and he's fulfilling it to a tee. Let's make him be the AP this week: we'll see if he's as noble as he bills himself to be when they wag $20k under his nose, and then we can enjoy him being called 'Judas' and worse for doing our bidding.

    She's always on the feeds but by the end of each day, I just don't have much on her, but 'I look like a rabies rabbit' when she tried on Renny's white glasses was a keeper quote. I'll be surprised if she goes tomorrow, but I was plenty surprised when Brian, Steven & Angie went.

    Won: Hawaii trip, $1k
    Stop singing!!! She should stop campaigning too: her eviction will be payment for sins she committed four weeks ago, even though she's had no real power since then. She can thank peabrain Jessie for that: he convinced Michelle that Libra was the tie-dye ringleader long after she wasn't anymore, and Michelle has since convinced everyone else.

    Won: Classic Camaro
    He was surprised and maybe a bit offended by the 'strong but silent type' comment on 'The Late Late Show', and I guess maybe he figured that means he's not getting the air time he feels he deserves. He was transparent in his attempts to amend that when he changed into a VERY BRIGHT red silk shirt after the taping, but wardrobe changes or not, he was as non-amusing as ever.

    I want to like her, but I just don't much. She's exhausting to listen to, and her hair keeps getting bigger every day. She's gotten very comfy during her week at the top, and it'll be interesting to see how she fares as a citizen, and on her own, after she falls. She seriously thinks Craig Ferguson is instructed not to watch the show for fear he might let something slip that he shouldn't. Sorry Michelle, but unlike some of us, Craig has a life. And what's more, he probably cringes when Wednesday rolls around and he has to pretend to enjoy bantering with ego-inflated hamsters.

    He finally was told to lay off the 'Julie Momma' stuff, and it's about time.

    A new week looms and she's begun gardening again, planting seeds about Dan (reminders that he cast the only vote against her); April (mentioning 'scandalous' BB hook-ups of the past); Memphis Bob (getting him to tell stories that didn't make him look so good); and Libra (saying in her presence that 'the first year is the most important of a child's life'). Naturally Jerry's still on her hit list too, but he's all but given up beating her in their private slop cakes battle. Easy ups for all that, with a bonus for her midnight Dan grilling plus childhood stories.

    The first to get an empty wheel before their time, his comic relief wore off fast and he brought nothing but a major mirror obsession and raging insecurity. But it's not all bad: he laid around in pink pillows and talked himself gone with rampaging harangues, and he'll carry the fact that he lost to a girl while wearing spandex, then lost to three girls plus Renny. Rehabs will profit from the Jessie Drinking Game.

    The third fan fave to walk the plank, she was a great sidekick to the fun guys but she didn't bring much after they left, including any real attempt to save herself. Like many who have gone before, she seems like she'd be a cool person in reality, but this isn't. Her angry hat and illegal tribute bandana aside, she did a great Julie puppet and manscaping. Bikini fans will miss her, as will the Behind Pillows alliance.

    They all liked him and his shenanigans, but his comp potential and desperate pledges of multi allegiance got him booted anyway, plus he was Brian's pal. He entertained them and us like few have before, with skits, dances, nekkid romps, Ambien-induced bedtime stories and general looniness. Too bad he went before he made it upstairs: he'd probably have revived Bath Buddies® and done it right.

    He made more of an impact than most who get voted out first and he had the potential to be a fan fave but he over-allied and betrayed too early and had a very negative edit to boot. He was smart, funny, and a good ringleader for the guys - time will tell if they can be as fun without him. Sock Puppet Theater on only the second night of feeds, under his direction, could be the highlight of the season.
