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.

Diminishing chance of fights and/or April hissy fits, boo

'Late Late Show' with Craig Ferguson is not happening this week: he's on reruns

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.

    Waiting game

    In our case, it's the long, long wait each week for Thursday.. in Jerry's, it's waiting for the washing machine

    Most of them were laughing at him inside as he stood watching the washer for a half hour or more.. finally someone asked him why he was watching it, and he said he put too much soap in

    The camera came out and Renny took the opportunity to tease/scold Dan a bit about his public pooping problem, and his armpit deodorant crumbs.. Ollie wouldn't kiss April on the mouth for their pic, but they had a nice peck on the cheek shot.. Renny said she "called out everybody" in her blog - it should be posted this evening

    Dan & Memphis Bob finally got some ingenuity and devised a marbles game with towels, but it didn't last long

    Keesha & Renny compared notes about Ollie looking for a new home - they said they'd wait to see who wins HOH to decide what to do about him.. Ollie's still whispering with Jerry a lot too.. Renny offered her HOH room to Ollie & April if they wanted some private time - they thanked her but turned down the offer

    They're on early lockdown, probably for the night, which means another big apparatus comp tomorrow: they didn't do the usual first night HOH endurance comp, so we could be due for another one of those

    Jack Shack review

    Dan said something to Keesha about The Pool Box Incident - I don't think I want to know, but apparently there are a few Hamsterwatchers who are new to the site and/or feeds since BB6 and were confused by my Jack Shack references: it's where Howie finally decided to umm.. "relieve" himself.. it took him 57 days of suffering (and sharing about his suffering) til he figured out he could just fit in the pool supply box.. only Howie could get away with making this fun and funny, and still be liked by most

    All the seasons I've covered remain on the site to revisit (linked at the bottom of each page).. I documented one of Howie's early visits to his Jack Shack.. he returned to it for BB7 All-Stars; so did Boogie, but the less said about that, the better

    What to do?

    It's a very long afternoon and evening - it feels like they have to spend recess inside on a rainy day

    Dan & Memphis Bob started marbles again for awhile, swapping towels for toilet paper.. they were like two little boys, sitting on the floor playing - not necessarily friends; more like kids forced to play together 'cause their moms are friends, or something.. later they took a sauna together, and a tandem shower after that

    Renny made deep fried onion rings and other goodies for all but the two sloppers.. Keesha chatted and made peculiar faces.. Ollie clogged the toilet and Jerry plunged it clear, then went back to trimming his hair - nope, he didn't wash his hands in between
    Making homemade onion rings for people makes them friends forever - trust me on this one

    Packing April

    Jerry packed - it didn't take him long

    April started: she has a lot more than Jerry to pack up.. at one point, Ollie packed her up into her suitcase and rolled her out to the front door - the others didn't know where the "Let me out!" cries were coming from

    She came out roaring with laughter and just a few complaints; Ollie was howling.. they said it was the funniest thing ever on BB! and they wanted to be sure Diary had seen it! It was a good time, but others have been funnier, and others have been suitcase'd over the years too.. still, it was cute and about the only interaction the Gruesome Twosome have had with the group at large for several days

    An unassigned task

    Dan started mimicking Renny towards the end of the evening

    Maybe it wasn't the wisest thing for him to do: the "Dan is America's Player" chatter has died down some, but that was one of BB8 Eric's tasks

    It also wasn't wise since Renny's been poking at him all day, and even if Dan attempted this as a sort of lame payback, it eventually irritated Renny enough that she said she'd pull his pants down.. that got him to stop

    More screencaps are in the forum with more on the way, thanks to Chewy9028 and ABT

    Ratings are based on entertainment value

    It might get fixed now that it's being pointed out, but is there any reason that a company the size of CBS lets an error ride like the one on their HOH blogs page? They show 'Head of Household #4: April' with the start of April's blog and a link to the rest of it, and 'Head of Household #5: April' with the start of Michelle's blog and a link to the rest of it. And it's sat there like that for a full week! They're getting millions to put this thing on the air, and the rest of us are working for peanuts.. and the peanuts are skimpy this season, and unsalted. If they do fix it now, they can thank me.. ha! I've posted a screencap in the forum for posterity.

    Won: Designer clothes, $5k
    I'm giving her credit for going out quietly. As disappointing and unexpected as it's been, it's rather classy of her to accept her fate and not make a big stink about it this week. Also, tonight she gave Michelle one of the camisoles or nighties she won to go with the earrings she gave her earlier. That's right, even though she ranked up a farewell #12 tonight, I used the word 'classy' when talking about April.. so sue me. If it helps, April will still have to pay the taxes on those items she gave away.

    Won: $20k (presumably)
    He's really been getting poked at by Renny and she knows how to push his buttons, but it's never malicious, luckily. He really needs to start wearing one of his two shirts again: now he's not only pointing his hairy pits at us all day & night, but they've got deodorant crumbs hanging off of them now.. we haven't seen that since BB5 Jase and we do not need to see it again. We don't need irritation tactics in the style of a 10-year-old either, but I think we're stuck with them.

    Won: $4k
    He's still there, and he'll still be there another week. At least. I don't jump all over them for not washing their hands after using the toilet, but he really needs to do that after plunging out a clog.. that's just nasty.

    She keeps dropping little tidbits about her past: today she said she was on 'House of Carters' as she's a friend of BJ (one of the wacky Carter sisters). She's becoming the glue of the season: she talks to most of them and she's pretty much on an even keel most of the time - when she isn't Barbie Battling, anyway. I am disappointed we didn't get an Act 3 of that, but so it goes. She'll be in pretty good standing with most of them once April's gone, so she's looking to be in good shape to stick around awhile longer.

    Won: Classic Camaro
    He talked about some of his father issues to Keesha tonight in the greenlight, and it was interesting to finally get a little insight into what makes him tick. He sounds like he's got things fairly well sorted out there, but he also might be hanging on to a bit of denial and resentment. He has admitted that that's been part of his barrier about Jerry. Those dynamics might get more interesting as we go.. here's hoping.

    I'm getting to where I pretty much tune her out anymore, but it was nice of April to share another bit of pricey goodness with her and she accepted it as gracefully and gratefully as she did the jewelry. She's just about worn out her welcome with some of them as far as her humble upbringing, and she's burning her bridges for anyone with a jury vote who might end up in the 'needs the money' camp.

    He's been really good with April this week, and we all know that can't be an easy job. I think he had a lot to do with keeping her calm & quiet, and that should turn out a lot better for him than what BB9 Chelsia did for James when she left. I doubt these two will last any longer than those two did, but it's been quite a show to this point. I'm really hoping Ollie comes out after April goes, and joins the game and maybe even stirs up some stuff. Or, he might just move on to Michelle.

    As said before, she worked on Dan in little ways all day & night, but it's done in a way that he can't and won't hold anything against her for it. I have no doubt she could take him down in a minute if she wanted, and maybe we'll get there. I'm not sure she knows how to deal with Memphis Bob though.. she might be stumped as far as how to proceed there. Ollie applied to be on her team, via Keesha, but I don't think Renny sent a response. She told Keesha they'd wait to see who wins HOH tomorrow.. it's a big one.

    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.
