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

Watch Big Brother 24/7

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.

Take a swig whenever the feeds go to fishies.. signs of alcohol poisoning

Best wishes to all who got hit, and good luck with cleanup.

It's been announced as a midseason replacement which doesn't mean definite, but it may come back for another winter/spring edition.. they need some kind of filler to go against 'American Idol'. eligibility - application

'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

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.

    How to choose a winner

    It's that time again to revive a Hamsterwatch rerun.. it doesn't matter that we don't have a vote: we like to think that we do, and anyway, we're more qualified to make a selection than the seven bitter jurors.. we don't see any relevant Diary footage anymore since they record pro & con versions of everything now and they don't air any of the meaty stuff these days, but we've seen far more than the jury so they too need to adopt one of these methods:

    Played the best game
    This is the popular, politically-correct method that everyone claims to use, but nobody really does.. nearly every 'game' falls into one of the other categories

    Lied the best/most
    This one's a little squirrely as it crosses over into ethical/unethical territory, and that leads to arguments about politics and/or religion, and that leads to flame wars every time.. BB2 Dr. Will is the exception here: he won by skirting the moral issues and flat-out lied about everything - except the fact that he was lying

    Needs the money most
    Please! We all 'need' a half million dollars! Anyone who goes on a tv show to pay their Visa bill or because they can't scrape together the next car payment should consider credit counseling, bankruptcy, gambling, or steady employment.. we're all sick of the sob stories

    Generally an obvious front-runner for feedsters (although not so much for last season's finalists), but more jury members are closet cutest-sexiest-dreamiest voters than they'll admit

    Smartest player
    A favorite for feedsters and jury alike, it's what most really mean when they say 'best game' - basically it means 'smarter than me' - but given the fact that we're dealing with people who've spent two months pooping on tv, being humiliated for our enjoyment, and making their friends & families ashamed to claim them, most hamsters are eliminated from this category when they complete their BB application

    Played like I would
    The big daddy for feedsters who haven't caught on that everyone's different and everyone does different things for different reasons.. it's the most popular judging criteria and the dumbest: they aren't you, and until you're in there for two months of paranoia, daily slander, and Diary messing up your better judgment, you can't possibly know what you'd do in there.. get over it

    Backstabbing revenge
    One of the elimination categories, this one's about rooting for anyone except the player who took out your favorite (or yourself, if on the jury).. this one usually decides the winner.. in gamespeak it's also known as 'nothing personal'

    Creeped me out
    Another elimination category and a big one last season, though not so much this time since Jerry was booted just in time, this is rooting for anyone except the player who gives you the willies or reminds you of your ex.. more popular among feedsters than the jury, which is odd: they're the ones who lived with the creepies - we can shut 'em off

    I just like him/her
    Hands-down easiest method because it requires no reasons or explanations, making it the best category to avoid involvement in flame wars

    Deserves to win
    This really means you don't know or don't care and are probably just afraid of getting involved in a flame war.. back it up with something or shift over to 'I just like him/her'

    Most entertaining
    A personal favorite, but this season the fun ones went out way too early.. anyway, let's face it: the ones that entertain us the most are usually the ones that drive them nuts inside - there's probably a connection

    Played with integrity
    This is a nice pipe dream for optimists and romantics, but not much more: in reality tv, the good tend to die young

    I hate them all equally
    Most feedsters end up here sooner or later


    Some activities finally showed up, a few weeks late: they got badminton rackets and a shuttlecock - many "cock" jokes ensued.. they also got bocce balls, cards, and tie-dye kits to create future eBay income, and they laid around a lot

    I'm still ass-uming jury questioning will come along at midnight, but apparently Showtime ran a crawl last night about doing a best-of show tonight or something, so there's no telling when it'll start til does.. Jerry needs enough time to do his press rounds, and then to get there with enough time to compare notes with the other six and/or be ignored by them.. there's been an awful lot of banging around in there today, the cause(s) unseen by us, complete with birdies chirping while all feeds were inside

    The feeds replay seems to be coming & going.. I'll be surprised if it doesn't start over fresh on Tuesday night after the finale, but I've been surprised by more than a few things this summer.. you can find direct URLs for the replay on my no time-out feeds page (low on the page, and subject to change), and DogDave has a handy refeeds popup

    No fallout for you

    Feeds went to trivia at 9pm and Showtime put on a rerun from earlier in the day.. feeds came back at midnight, again to fit the Showtime schedule.. the questions and the fallout were over, although Dan didn't look pleased

    We were all cheated out of the final feeds highlight of the season, and it was shaping up to be a good one

    Not really too surprising for this season of The Powers That Be cheating their audience, their loyal core audience that doesn't grow much, but may dwindle a bit more from yet another incident of this kind of stuff

    Production-wise, all in all it's been a pretty good season.. to poop on

    I'll be back for some kind of wrap-up after the finale

    Daily ratings - Watch the birdie edition

    Ratings won't be udpated this time

    They obviously hate us.

    Won: $20k (presumably)
    He's still in there

    Won: Classic Camaro
    He's still in there

    Won: $4k
    As the old guy token deluxe, he kept up with the kids surprisingly well and survived a couple 6-foot drops off comp apparatus. Mostly he bored them and us with dull stories, and he was shunned by most of them most of the time. He ate a lot of slop and provided constipation consulting services. He got down & dirty with the girls too many times and when he got nasty, he was far more vicious than most.

    More modest than expected and smarter than she appeared: she may have lasted if she'd let them underestimate her early - and stayed awake later. She starred in some spectacular fights like Battling Barbies (fueled by enema angst), and she was the ideal Drunk Girl. Saran wrap saunas were odd but her laugh was infectious (if peculiar), especially when Renny's antics had her literally rolling.

    She rebounded from a disastrous start to become a feedsters dream and viewer fave. She planted subtle seeds, was liked even by those she poked at, and she revived the Dr. Will method of manipulation without malice. She also had a full costume trunk and put on unexpected shows to keep them and us rolling in the aisles. Hamsterwatch Star of the Season: she personified why feeds are required.

    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.
