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.

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.

    What a mess

    The feeds were finally fixed around noon (!) but everything else is still in chaos

    Dan's dancing around a lot, trying to keep everyone happy - which doesn't seem quite possible with his various promises, but we'll see how it unfolds.. they're all visiting HOH to try to sniff out what he's up to, and to grovel

    Dan asked Renny & Keesha about making a foursome with Memphis Bob.. Keesha seemed okay with it, and Dan wanted to "make it official" and give it a name (no names, please!).. Renny balked but said she might go along with it.. before he got to pitch it to Memphis Bob, M-Bob blurted out that he's anti-Renny all the way

    To top it all off, Renny's gone gansta

    Renny-gades implode, already

    Maybe it's not technically an implosion, but it's a pretty shaky alliance when one member puts up the other within a week of forming

    Memphis Bob had been warned it could happen, but he still seemed shocked to have been nominated with Jerry, and he asked Dan what he'd been smoking while doing those deals with Ollie? Dan reassured him that he'll be safe, like they do, and told him about Parts 2 & 3 of the Deal of the Century: the parts where Ollie can save whoever he wants if he wins the veto, and he gets to pick the veto replacement if somebody else wins and uses it

    Before noms, Dan fretted in HOH a long time, silently and talking to himself.. it seems he forgot how to count to six when putting his various deals together, or something.. afterwards, Dan made another (desperate) plea to Keesha about a foursome, but she declined:

    Dan: Will you shake hands with Renny and myself and Memphis?
    Keesha: Huh-uh
    Dan: Why?
    Keesha: With you & Renny I would
    Dan: Well, can you do any - cross your fingers?

    After noms, Renny made family dinner for them all, except Keesha - maybe she was in Diary, or not eating whatever was served.. it was another lovely supper with awkward silence around the table, once the niceties were over.. all they need tonight is a sizeable booze delivery and we could be in for some good fun again

    Deja vu? Not quite

    Dan asked Renny how to make a bubble bath, and then went around announcing he was going to have a bubble bath, in swim trunks, and they were all invited to come watch (but they couldn't get in)

    Renny bit and went up with him, and helped him make suds.. Dan asked her "How deep is it?" at one point - while looking at it.. Memphis Bob joined, and Dan got in

    I wondered but didn't dare think for a minute that Dan was really going to try to recreate Dr Will's famous Duckie Puppet Theater, in which he laid out his game plan for BB7 All-Stars with humor and charm in one of the top ten BB segments of all time.. (and it came to pass, with the exception of the Boogie swap to #1 - but Willboogie both benefited from the win)

    And then Dan set up two duckies on the side and said "This is Renny, and this is Keesha.." it didn't go much further.. eventually Keesha showed up and he replayed that opening line again, and that was it, fortunately - but the damage had been done, at least in my mind.. what I'd like to know is did Dan decide to do this on his own, or was it suggested to him by TPTB?

    They got booze - unfortunately it was only a bottle of wine and two beers, so the rest of the evening passed largely without incident.. they've been locked down all afternoon and all night again - it should be another big veto comp apparatus

    On a personal note

    I don't put much in here that isn't BB-related, but Hamsterwatcher extraordinaire La Norman La Femme has left the habitat.. I thought I might just take the day off from all this TV nonsense, but it's been good to keep busy, and distracted

    Extremely observant visitors may have noted a thanks to Norman in my season end thanks & shout-outs

    He was a jaunty and very sweet litte girly-boy who was around since the founding of this site and for every pixel of it since

    He really didn't do much hamsterwatching and in fact he was never crazy about hamster season rolling around, but he was a major supporter of the site.. he kept me going so I could keep it going, so I'm making him a part of it tonight

    He was a superkitty and he had a real good life.. and he was also an artist :)

    Some screencaps are in the forum thanks to ABT and new capper Hanto

    Daily ratings - TAKEN edition

    Ratings are based on entertainment value

    Well, they fixed the feeds.. finally. Kudos to the favorite feedmaster who flashed on an extreme close-up of Dan's Cheez-Its while he was counting how many hamsters he didn't have left to nominate.

    Won: $20k (presumably)
    Ups for the TAKEN shirt Monica sent him, and how he wore it today for noms and for several game meetings. Time may prove otherwise, but at this point it looks like Dan's the one who got TAKEN - by his own way too many deals. The raincoat question lingers on. Sure, anyone who watches knows they have rain in those comps.. but anyone who watches also knows they have cameras in the HOH bathroom. You'd think a painfully modest hamster like him would especially be aware of that. As far as the duckies.. I'm sorry Dan, you're a nice enough guy but leave that stuff to the pros.

    Won: $4k
    'He's still fixing his groin.' © lam in Hamsterwatch Chat

    Her game style is great and a perfect complement to Renny's. Keesha sits there and nods and sounds like she's agreeing (even if she isn't) - then she goes back to Renny and says something like 'Can you believe he actually said that??' They're playing good cop/bad cop in there, and doing it very well, without over-committing themselves like some most.

    Won: Classic Camaro
    He's just a little worried now, and rightly so. He pointed out the obvious to Dan about how peculiar it is for a two-person alliance to nominate each other (somebody had to point it out) but Dan's attempting to fast-talk his way out of this one. It all comes down to the veto most weeks, but more than usual this time. If Memphis Bob doesn't win it, he might be on his way to Paradise© this time next week.

    She keeps being nearly everyone's target and she keeps getting away clean.. brilliant! But still hard to listen to for long.

    There's a new entry in the dictionary today: if you look up 'sitting pretty' you see a picture of Ollie. Probably in a hat, or perhaps his new April tribute headband. We don't have to like it, but at least it's legal: he didn't vote her out.

    She went through almost an entire day without a wardrobe or hat change, and that's highly unusual. She did switch up her JPFD uniform a bit, going from gangsta to soccer mom to hamster pal, but she kept the shirt and hat for the duration til late night for a meeting in HOH (that started without her, which she pointed out).

    Won: Designer clothes, $5k
    We've had sex on the feeds before, but we never actually saw it until she came along. She one-upped often but to her credit, she impressively won the first endurance. She had delusions about her importance in & out of the habitat, and her Barbie Battles with Keesha plus her other fights were something. But we knew from the start she wouldn't be invisible, thanks to her most unusual introduction to the others.

    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.
