I don't care who wins, I'm just here for the cheap entertainment.. the cheaper, the better

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.

A growing chance of fights and/or April hissy fits

'Late Late Show' taping with Craig Ferguson is Wednesday around 4-5 pm; it airs Wednesday night on CBS after David Letterman

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


Click for Studio City, California Forecast

Ollie & Jerry are on slop plus lollipops

Memphis Bob cashed in his slop pass
(Janelle's and Sharon's remain unused)

BB announcements - clues?
·121 marble slots in a Chinese checkerboard
·Sweden is slightly larger than California
·The tallest building west of the Mississippi is 73 stories
·Over 300 species of turtles alive today
·Wurlitzer 1015 Bubbler arguably the most popular jukebox of all time

'Switzerland', 'The Psychologist' and 'Dairy Queen' refer to Diary Room; 'Vacation' refers to pre-show hotel sequester

Jerry is being called 'The Colonel'

The winner will once again receive $500k, and second place gets $50k. The weekly stipend for the others remains $750, including sequester weeks.

The habitat has 52 cameras and 95 mics this season

The recorded Big Brother in-house announcements are the voice of producer Don Wollman

Finale was scheduled for September 17 - maybe now it'll be the 16th. It's a slightly shorter season than usual, by about 10 days


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.

  August 18, 2008 - Day 42

>> past   >> present   >> future   >> all

>> Renny is Head of Household - April & Jerry are nominated - Dan did not use the veto <<

>> Latest Twitters should show here - if not, see them here
    $9,000 veto

    I'm not positive that both April & Jerry offered all their money to Dan to use the veto but I think they did.. he turned them both down to be third in line for Memphis Bob's Final Two deal - a deal that only has room for one, and Michelle's ahead of Dan

    Afterwards, Dan said "They had me stare at the memory wall for like five minutes".. most of those he told had already been through that silly ordeal, as have we, when they had their first and last nominations on the feeds.. that one was billed as a "special treat" but it wasn't very special at all

    April accepted it, for now, by looking forward to the fame she's sure she's got.. apparently she doesn't yet realize she'll forever be more infamous than famous.. later she & Ollie bickered about whether she was practicing her flirting technique or performing oral hygiene

    April: It's a nice way of picking your teeth!
    Ollie: Freaking sticking your tongue through your cheek? It's an international symbol
    April: Wow, I don't know what.. no
    Ollie: You never heard that before?
    April: No, and why does everything have to be sexual with you?
    Ollie: That's the first thing that comes across any person's mind!

    Things we don't want to think about

    Fortunately, Jerry was only looking for signs of life in the praying mantis Dan caught.. it ended up on Howie's Jack Shack after baking in the sun awhile

    Keesha & Michelle scolded Dan for killing it, but he said it would be okay and fly away.. see the full story in screencaps

    You have to admit the habitat decorators are on our side sometimes.. the backyard goes through color scheme changes every season, but they keep the Jack Shack the same color to make sure we recognize it.. they don't though: apparently all of these hamsters who have supposedly "seen every season" missed those feeds, videos, and a zillion web references

    The usual slop

    The evening passed slowly, and no booze arrived.. Renny, Keesha & Memphis Bob had a fun, spirited after-dinner discussion about dating, sex, and the like - Dan was there too but didn't contribute a lot.. another big bug was found, captured and released.. Ollie chased Renny around the yard, threatening her with a giant booger

    Renny continues to cross-examine Dan and Memphis Bob, both directly and through others.. she's got Keesha & Michelle each talking about them both, and perhaps wondering about them and their loyalties.. Michelle continues to c-block April & Ollie from getting much action

    They all went a little nuts at bedtime, with separate groups of them cackling hysterically in the kitchen and in the pink room.. it was loony, and a good time

    Daily ratings - Not very special edition

    Ratings are based on entertainment value

    The hyperactive fishies-switcher was still there for part of the day, blocking discussions about nameless ex's and deceased relatives for no apparent reason. They desperately need regular, daily booze deliveries: coma season is setting in.

    Won: Designer clothes, $5k
    She continues to out-do herself, claiming things like she's probably on magazine covers now and that she will almost certainly be revived, possibly with Libra. Add the usual assortment of very unfortunate expressions and matching hairstyles, and she's providing nearly all the comic relief in there these days.

    Won: $20k (presumably)
    He went back to sleep today, but not before (possibly) killing a praying mantis by baking it to death, and telling a related story that was like the punchline to a Catholic guilt joke. I seriously hope he walks in on April & Ollie boinking before she goes: he'd probably faint. I'd also like for Renny to find out about his deal with Memphis Bob, and confront him about it.

    Won: $4k
    I may never get the image of him reaching for Howie's Jack Shack out of my mind.

    She's still doing her part to keep things lively, as much as possible without booze anyway. I'm also seriously hoping for one more round of Battling Barbies before April's exit.

    Won: Classic Camaro
    Renny's really got his number but she can't get any proof, so she continues to interrogate in her subtle and roundabout way. I forgot to mention last night that he was describing his job as 'table service', making drinks for waitresses to trot back to whoever ordered them. I've given him the benefit of the doubt as far as the 'mixologist' tag as SBE probably does employ people to create cocktails, but that sure sounds like a bartender to me.

    She just won't leave April & Ollie alone long enough to get busy during their last days together, even popping in during their shower together. She's starting to make BB9 Joshuah look subtle. She also continues to spew her ignorance of BBs past while pretending to be more of an expert than the other supposed experts in there. Well, she's going by the CBS versions of everything, so I guess that's somewhat to be expected.

    I have to give him credit once again for spending so much time with April and putting up with her so well, but solid ups tonight are for jumping into the pool twice - one of them a cannonball. This is a guy who didn't know how to swim a few weeks ago, and was almost afraid of the water! Ups also for his intuitive statement 'I'm gonna get some kind of criticism.. I feel it in my bones.' (Intuition-challenged April argued that it won't be so.)

    She's on to both Dan & Memphis Bob throwing comps and she spread that around some, along with other suspicions about them teaming up and other shady dealings. Memphis Bob in turn seems to be on to her a bit, so things could get interesting soon between these two, and we may end up with a tug-of-war over their various minions. If they have no food left tomorrow, it's due to her eating everything she could find throughout the evening.

    Won: Hawaii trip, $1k
    She ran the tie-dye room with an iron fist but only for a short time: her minions had turned on her long before Jessie & Michelle painted a bull's eye on her for being their leader. She took a lot of flak for leaving her babies and for choosing Hawaii, and her financial sob stories didn't always add up. But she told some fun stories, rebelled against giving comp recaps to Diary, and added great fireworks to fights.

    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.

    April (to Ollie): I'm tired of offering money.. I'm taking my 5 Gs and we're going on vacation

    Keesha: You're not gonna make it in this game being the nice little person who just slinks along, unless you're Ollie

    April: At least there's going to be 2 out of 200 people that will recognize us, and even more if we're together
    Ollie: I want to be a fly on the wall
    April: And if you think we haven't made a magazine yet, you're an idiot
    Ollie: We haven't
    April: Guarantee it.. right now we are the hottest reality couple
    Ollie: No we're not
    April: Guarantee it

    Dan: When [his praying mantis] gets threatened, it takes its arms and puts them above its head to make it look bigger
    Dan: C'mon, get outta here.. fly away
    Memphis Bob: He's playing dead

    Keesha: Who's Howie?
    Memphis Bob: Howie?
    Keesha: Off a different episode, because [April] thinks he's so cute
    Memphis Bob: Howie's gay

    April: The thing about having big boobs is it catches all the food that I drop, and then I find it there.. it's kind of like a nice extra plate

    Dan (to Renny, about Memphis Bob): I would never trust him in a one-on-one thing

    Keesha: I don't think there's one person in here that has an 'alliance' (finger quotes)
    Memphis Bob: I know, I feel the same way

    Big Brother: Memphis, please do not obstruct your microphone
    Memphis Bob: Eat me


    I don't care what they think out there.. you'd have had to be here 24/7 to know really what was said.. they can't see all of it, the magnitude of it.. some of the nasty things that have been said in here - if people ever would really hear - if you [Keesha] would really hear, you would die, and I'm sure I would and others would too.. certain people in here say bad, bad, bad, bad shit

    I'm sure some of it will get out

    Can we get some pot in here? I'm getting bored!
