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.

'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.

    * PLEASE NOTE * Lots of folks won't have a timely live show on Thursday.. I don't know yet if I'll have access to one or not, but will do my best to update the site as we go.. Twitters might not go out timely either as Democrats will be clogging the internets around then.. I'm not thrilled with having to work up obits for all seven ahead of time, but so it goes

    Dear Monica

    It's rare we see them typing their blog, but we got some extra minutes watching Dan work up his

    Memphis Bob reported to the others that Dan had been kissing his Monica pic, and that "it was pretty gay".. Dan had his photos nearby to do his writing, and his mini basketball and (properly folded) USA flag were perched at the keyboard for inspiration.. later he said he did word association in it, posting one word for each of them (but he wouldn't tell them which words), along with a plea that he's still got a job, and a message to Monica

    He also said (twice) that he couldn't remember how to spell grateful - but the word doesn't appear in the blog (nor does greatful), so that was maybe a subliminal comment for jury buttering up purposes.. or maybe nothing

    Before all that, the camera had came out, like it does, and they did their cutesy posey smiles, like they do.. later Jerry said he wouldn't pose when Dan asked


    I've been half-hearing Michelle & Ollie talk about the gun-themed wakeup songs they had one day, as part of their recent whispery parannoying (© BB5 Diane)

    Big Brother does assign a theme to their daily wakeup music sometimes - often giving a clue to that day's comp, or who's leaving on eviction days - but I didn't pay enough attention to the details of the Paranoid Pair's take on the shootout theme til Michelle gave a teary guilt-trip to Dan, asking why she's become the victim of a deal she wasn't a part of

    She told Dan they were Monday's wakeup songs: the day he gave his Veto Roulette speech (and was allowed to deviate from the veto meeting script - a first, I believe), and she asked him flat out "Are you a plant here?".. remember Hamsterwatchers, just because you're paranoid doesn't mean all your worries are your imagination.. this was another good connection by Michelle, in my opinion

    Dan didn't address the plant question/accusation, but the tears did get to him


    I'm kicking myself for not remembering that Keesha is pals with BB8 Zach.. I knew she was even before we had her name confirmed: way back then, when her MySpace was leaked, I hit "mutual friends" and found only one: Zach.. no other hamsters, and no other BB sites or fans

    Shortly after, it came out that either she or Zach had pet-sat for each other, so they weren't just casual acquaintances, but it didn't seem like they were best buddies either, so I forgot all about it.. til now

    Keesha's boyfriend JJ and Zach put up an auction the other day on Zach's eBay to sell off one of her Hooters outfits, getting a jump on the other jurors (prior evicteees must be running around nekkid by now), and that's when the penny dropped and I remembered the Keesha/Zach connection

    Ask yourself why she doesn't talk about Zach when has-beens come up in convo; or why she won't say how she got on the show when that comes up; or why she works in a Hooters outfit and says she'd do Playboy, yet she's downright modest on the feeds (way more than most); or why she doesn't give up much personal info at all - let alone much strategy talk - or make many enemies

    Then ask yourself (again) why she had no photos of live-in boyfriend JJ among her HOH pics, and why she didn't give much explanation about that when asked.. he's posing with Zach & her short-shorts, so it's not because he's camera shy

    I've come up with a possible reason for it all: coaching, from one who's been there, whose nekkid romp hit CBS along with all the sites, and who stuck til Final Three (and who might have gone to finals but for the blood connection he was up against).. I've always said their HOH letters, pics & goodies from home could (and should) provide them clues.. it's very possible that JJ pics might have been code to change horses, and no JJ meant stay on course (aka with Renny)

    Call me paranoid but it was an early HOH and she hasn't really tried to get one since.. it's something to think about anyway, and make you go hmmm

    Damage control

    Back to our story, Dan & Memphis Bob talked about hamster nekkies on the web, and Memphis Bob said they could sue (us) to have them removed - uh, I don't think so

    The guys also made meatloaf, and Renny woke up from her nap to make something to go with it.. Keesha doesn't eat meat, and Ollie stayed away.. he did have several chats with Renny throughout the evening though, as it's Wednesday and the habitat is serving up waffles, as usual

    Feedmasters sent us another message at one point, like the one they sent about Jessie's impending eviction: this time they panned from napping Jerry to the POWER OF VETO wall sign and back to Jerry - for whatever that's worth.. I'm still remembering Keesha having said Jerry wins the next HOH, and she was right about Dan

    Maybe Jerry got his hands slapped after last night's Keesha cuss-fest.. he made an attempt to talk nice to her for no apparent reason, telling her she doesn't eat enough to stay alive

    Maybe that didn't do the trick, as later, while campaign waffling was in full force around the habitat, he sat down with her in his punk room and had a nice grandfatherly chat about the insanity of the game, no hard feelings, cute furry animals in general and their doggies Pepe & Gizmo in particular

    Jerry told her, among other things: "It gets a little nasty, little smiles & smirks, bullshit, and things get said, heh heh heh.. I don't want to hear any sour grapes".. yep Jerry, it sure does get nasty sometimes.. he also put everyone playing the Jerry Drinking Game under the table

    Afterward, Keesha went to HOH and reported the convo to teamies Dan & Memphis Bob.. Jerry moved back to Ollie and went to town about "those pricks" Dan & Memphis Bob, and about someone whose "pussy can't fucking control me - my dick don't need her".. I'm not sure who it's about this time, and don't much care

    What's the odds?

    Dan spent two hours cutting up plastic rings and covering them with tinfoil at bedtime.. nope, that's not a typo - two hours

    Then he held it up and said it was the Platinum Power of Veto, and that it looked like the real thing.. then he wrapped it up carefully and tucked it away.. most likely to get caught selling counterfeit veto symbols, indeed

    Some screencaps from the day are in the forum, thanks to ABT, as are some thoughtful discussions on this whole mess, BB10 Park, and some other fun stuff too

    Life story made into a feature film

    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.
