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 is September 16. 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. The previously-announced 4th task evaporated. Apparently all the 'Dan is America's Player' suspicions will not invalidate him.. 'plant' didn't, anyway.

    Maneuvering for position

    Each of the foursome has spent a lot of time shmoozing Jerry, and a lot more time humoring him and his everlasting (and dull) story reruns

    Memphis Bob seems to be slightly ahead on the shmooze-meter, having had a long, beer-sippy, guy-to-guy chat with Jerry late last night.. the two of them came this close to making a Final Two pact that looked good on paper (if they had any) but let's not forget how many times Jerry's said he can't wait to see Dan's face when Memphis Bob f's him over - nor the vile things Jerry's said about each of The Four, for that matter

    Otherwise it's a pretty quiet habitat these days: whispery what-ifs have been largely replaced by small talk in there, but they're running rampant out here.. the pool filter's clogged with straw, and they continue to beg for a luxury comp despite all the prizes already won.. I'm still recovering from being on dial-up during the evictions show

    Only four to choose from

    Jerry chose Dan & Keesha

    After the noms, Keesha was uncharacteristically chirpy with the others in the kitchen, and Dan went off on his own looking miserable.. Keesha joined him and they talked about the importance of the veto.. Renny paid a quick visit before dinner prep and gave them both hugs

    They're building in the backyard for the veto comp already.. morph-o-matic is overdue, and it's usually done at night-time.. we'll see

    Drunken Renny-ditions

    The evening worked out conveniently once again, with most of them passed out for a few hours (resting up for what was eventually announced as a midnight veto comp - you read it here first)

    While the others slumbered, Renny was called to Diary.. then she got herself fancied up in red wig, sparkly hat, sparkly makeup, and sparkly star earrings.. she posed/laid on the sofa awhile and the feedmasters panned from her to the star on a shelf and back again, confirming what we all know: Star of the Season

    They got some wine and Renny & Keesha in particular got sippy and silly like they do, then they got the veto announcement and proceeded to sip some more.. Renny did a few hilarious rounds of Renny-ditions and other raucous shenanigans, to the delight of all.. Jerry showed up (in a new shirt) and buzz-killed the party, and Renny & Keesha wound it all up with sippy, sappy declarations of everlasting friendship and love

    At this point, it's looking like non-drinker Dan has an advantage in tonight's comp, but if it is indeed morph-o-matic, Renny could rebound well and save the day (and herself).. on the other hand, Dan sat down to study the photo wall as if he'd been told to.. we'll know in a few hours

    Mystery veto

    They went to trivia promptly at midnight, and returned three hours later

    Renny, Keesha, Dan & Memphis Bob were all mostly silent and miserable, with Memphis Bob the most silent.. not a word from any of them about who won or what the comp was about, other than Keesha telling Renny "Isn't it funny they put you two as a couple?"

    The veto symbol thingy was in its box on the photo wall and Jerry was nowhere to be seen.. I thought maybe he'd won it again and was gloating in Diary, but he showed up asleep in the greenlight a half hour later

    The only clues I've got are a camera pan down the arrow over Memphis Bob's bed to him (but those pans can no longer be trusted to fill in the blanks for us), and Dan muttering to himself "Wait til I go to confession"

    They got ready for bed and turned in.. I've never seen anything like it, but am not going to wait around any longer - it'll become clear tomorrow

    Update: Saturday morning they finally let on that Memphis Bob won it

    Some screencaps of the day are in the forum thanks to ABT and Hanto.. super big ups for the folks at - they've been earning them all season

    Daily ratings - Too legit to quit edition

    Ratings are based on entertainment value, and it's waning

    I'm not falling for camera pan tip-offs anymore after the other night's false clue that panned from Jerry to the POWER OF VETO sign and back to Jerry again. But for what it's worth, tonight they panned from Dan to the EVICTION sign and back to Dan; and they took a ride down the arrow on the wall to Memphis Bob after the veto comp.. I'm just saying. They did another pan tonight that was accurate, and that was from sparkly Renny to the star on the wall and back to Renny. Everyone knows she is the hands-down star of the season, but it was nice to see it confirmed by them. Resounding triple negatives are on hold if they told these guys not to let on who won the veto or what the comp was about, but we may never find out if they did that or not.

    Won: $20k (presumably)
    He was all mopey after the nominations, but since he's squeaky clean Super Dan, he won't get any flak about it like Ollie or Michelle did. His pre-noms chat with Jerry was withheld from us after Dan played Three Questions, so we don't know if that had anything to do with anything or not. Dan did tell Memphis Bob 'If it was just me & you, I'd seriously consider throwing it' which perhaps says something about his gullibility, but he gets points for his crack about the S.S. Jerry.

    Won: $4k
    Retroactive negative for his over the top smugness and superior attitude last night after getting buzzed on his HOH win and beer. Sure, I've quoted his more horrid quotables here but have also pointed out his triumphs. Normally I can take him or leave him, but I can't tell you how many times last night I said JUST SHUT UP, JERRY! (Not that he heard me of course, since he didn't.) If the foursome have a problem with him spoiling their party, it's their own fault.. they had plenty of chances to kill him but they let him stick around. I'm seriously considering another new drinking game already, as the current one's going to get me class actioned pretty soon.. stay tuned.

    Big ups for not only being the cheeriest new nominee we've seen this season, but for bringing back our fun Drunk Girl to the feeds tonight. Unfortunately for her, inebriation isn't the best state in which to enter veto comps, but we'll see what happens.

    Won: Classic Camaro
    He just doesn't do much for me when he isn't feeling pressured, and he doesn't do much more when he is. He pops a funny now and then, but otherwise I'm sorry, flat-ironing a fauxhawk and deciding which v-neck color to wear just doesn't make for good hamsterwatching.

    On the other hand, we still have Renny in there who does know how to entertain. Donning red wig, sparkle hat and sparkle eyeshadow to pose with a symbolic prop star is one thing; drunken Renny-ditions (with a bite), getting mega-sippy before an important comp, and flipping head-over-heels on a waterbed are something else entirely. We desperately need her to stick around, else we might as well give up now and go back to what we were doing before July.

    He arrived as the innocent Preacher's Son but soon proved that false, as he & April shattered the record for hamster sex that included doggie-style, spanks and visuals. Nearly all of it was on the feeds, and the word spread even beyond the BB world. He was usually pleasant enough but had a temper tantrum ranking up there with the champ hissy-fitters. Like many others, he learned to swim at summer camp.

    Almost brilliant but poor judgment kept her glued to devalued teamies and she let paranoia take over her game. She was almost good watching but poor people skills, repetitive & constant whispers, and annoying babytalk didn't help - Holly Poodle skits & medical help excepted. She's the third member of the elite Red Catsuit Club and her leaked Diary showed how much flirting really goes on in there.

    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.
