Watch Big Brother 11 on SuperPass. Can't see on TV

This site is about the Big Brother 11 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.

to see it all - it's a different show than CBS puts on!

BB11 daily index - BB10 daily index

Nobody's sure why Chima left and we may never know the full story: it was all behind fishies

Jeff won the Coup d'Etat in a public vote and used it to replace Chima's noms (Lydia & Russell) with Jessie & Natalie

Comps determine living conditions. The losers live in the Jail room with lights always on cold water showers, and slop.

Viewer votes determine one additional food item the sloppers can have.

Teams are over. There were four teams: Populars, Jocks, Brainiacs, and Offbeats.

Teamies of the HOH could not be nominated, but they could compete in the next week's HOH comp.

Hamsters earn $750 a week including pre-show hotel and jury sequester. It's possible Jessie gets more (BB7 All-Stars did).

The habitat has 52 cameras and 80 mics.

The recorded Big Brother in-house announcements are the voice of producer Don Wollman.

    Now we've got a show

    They got the middle sized table as predicted here, and they had their food comp which was a days-of-the-week affair.. they all get slop one day - I'm not sure which, and I'm not sure if Natalie's slop pass is expired or not, but those are petty details.. what really matters is they won the grill

    That's right, Hamsterwatchers the world over are cheering: BBQ Smackdown is back for an unprecedented sixth (or seventh) season! The Metal Monster's impressive career scorecard has been added to the right sidebar, and hopefully will be updated with more juicy match scores for us than juicy steaks for them.. between Russell, Natalie & Lydia all having martial arts ties, Jeff loving to cook (and raring to come off slop tonight), Jordan's healthy appetite, Michele & Kevin's standing around in crossfire a lot, and Chima's overall attitude, we might get some unprecedented action this season

    Michele nominated Chima & Natalie, who'd each made a pitch to her before the ceremony - for nought.. the rest of the evening was full of threats and they got a golf practice thingy, possibly for the veto comp, but otherwise mostly uneventful - it was also full of fishies, way more than usual

    BREAKING NEWS! CHIMA IS GONE! She'd thrown her mic in the hot tub and refused to wear a replacement for a long time, and she & her minions had been bashing, trashing, and hiding clothes and the like.. she also said that Diary had been asking where she thought it had all gone wrong for her

    Then after a very, very long look at the fishies, feeds came back for a quick second to Natalie saying "when they say expect the unexpected, they mean it!" A bit later they came back to stay, to Michele, Russell, Jeff & Jordan in the kitchen who confirmed Chima was gone.. I don't know if she walked out or was kicked out, and we may never know - rumors are already taking over and soon have already become fact

    What now? Wait and see, Hamsterwatchers, wait and see.. they may just cancel next week's double eviction, they could say she had to leave for family reasons (remember her mom is ill - best wishes to her), or they could go for another ratings boost by showing some of whatever drama did occur, either accurately or with whatever spin they want to put on it

    Please have no doubt the version of the supposed events making the rounds DID NOT TAKE PLACE ON THE FEEDS.. it's likely an "official" "leak" so take it with the usual grain of salt as far as accuracy & completeness as you would with anything you see the CBS version of that you didn't witness for yourself.. incidentally, I believe their official story for BB9 Neil Garcia was that he quit (quitting for family reasons is still quitting).. or did he just cease to exist to them?

    Daily Ratings - Unexpected Exit edition

    Ratings are based on entertainment value

    Of course I love that today saw the return of the grill and BBQ Smackdown with it, a Hamsterwatch exclusive tradition since 2004. Jeff took it as a personal affront when he'd cooked a huge meal at 9pm to end his week of slop and they opened the backyard minutes after he finished eating it - he'd been looking forward to grilling steaks but figured they were locked in all night. I took it as a personal affront when Russell finally did initiate the metal monster for the season, but we only had a couple quick glimpses of him facing it down. We could hear the creak of the beast and the clang of metal on metal, but we couldn't see it, and that was as disappointing as not seeing any of yesterday's fallout. So ups for the grill's return were neutralized. I'm not going to touch all the flying flak about drowned mics, hidden clothing, and penalties for same, and I wish people would stop asking me about them: it's nothing to do with me. And let's not even go into the two? three? more? hours of Friday night fishies.. definitely no ups for them today.

    Update: Today's ratings were titled Initiation edition in honor of the grill's return, until we learned of Chima's untimely exit. We'd had a lot of fishies all night but a solid block of them late, and I'd been wondering WTF that was about. I'd just finished up Chima's rating for today (giving her a neutral for unintentional comedy by refusing to wear her mic and camping out on the washer/dryer) when they came back and we learned the news. She was overbearing last week in HOH and nasty last night & today, and I'm glad to see the back of her. But regardless of what she said in there (others have said equivalent or worse in there over the years), I don't like the idea of her quitting especially after what she'd been through in college.. she is a survivor in the true meaning of the word. I'm a little shocked.

    Team Jock

    He really enjoyed his meal tonight, and only I was more disappointed than him when he finished eating and the barrier to the back yard lifted too late. He wasn't overly angry about his things being moved or his blankets stolen last night, and he only got marginally more heated as the threats for more of the same increased. He wasn't really going to throw all 'their' clothes on the barbecue - but it would have made a hell of a Smackdown initiation for the season. Freaky Line of the Day award for what was a joke at the time: 'One more load of laundry and she's gone'

    Team Popular

    Once again, she was out of the crossfire for the petty vandalism that was done and discussed, and apparently for whatever happened with Chima behind fishies, and she didn't approach the grill.. fortunately.

    Team Offbeat Won: $5,000

    Just before the fishies took them & Chima away, he seemed as if he was starting to distance himself from the ickies. He'd just been talking to Michele about how mean & petty it had all become, and how much he didn't like it.

    Team Offbeat Won: Plasma TV

    She was stirring up Chima & Natalie both since their creepy eulogy for Jessie and since it was all such ugly talk, I didn't pay a whole lot of attention to it last night or today. So I won't say Lydia may have played a part in Chima's getting to the point where she either quit or did something to cause her to get fired, but I wouldn't be surprised.

    Team Brain

    She handled her pre-nom meetings with Chima & Natalie well, and was great fun after the noms with her group in her room, laughing and telling stories, and it was good to see her relaxed. After Chima's exit, she was happy again, saying how much fun they can all have now, enjoying the comps and the camaraderie. Here's hoping they do.

    Team Jock

    See Lydia.

    Team Jock Won: $10,000

    Along with Jeff, he had some great lines about Chima's behavior today that were funny at the time, but took on a more ominous tone after the fact. I'll forever be stumped by his & Chima's animosity considering their very flirty last friendly night together when they planned their fake fight, the way they kicked off their feud the next day on schedule, and played out the fight exactly as scripted during Showtime. After that it all seemed to be real, despite Russell's many other fights that he either said were fake after the fact, or were just downright weird like the one he had with Jessie on his last night.

    Team Brain Won: Nothing
    She began as a sympathetic character with her horrific story and positive outlook about it, and then things got weird. She flirted with Russell, planned a fake fight with him that happened exactly as scripted, and then they appeared to be mortal enemies. She had a raging and ultimately fatal case of HOH-itis and her hard fall from that was on live TV. With her subsequent nom she got petty, bitter & rebellious, and then she vanished. But she's a strong, smart woman and she'll survive this too.

    Team Jock Won: $2,500
    He showed up again uninvited and pretty much killed the feeds for those who were glad to see him leave last year. This time he had a new chin, only talked about himself again, got pink toenails, lost weight, mangled more words, got (at least) four HJs and one condom event with Lydia, all while playing he was Natalie's BFF. He went on Hamsterwatch ignore early during this second stint, and once again got his empty wheel before his time, so I don't have much more to say except hallelujah, he's gone!

    Team Brain Won: Nothing
    He looked great on paper but his BB expertise was more stats & CBS versions than anything practical - he obviously missed the start of BB10 or he wouldn't have duplicated Brian's suicidal game. He played a dirty game that included a Michele smear campaign, but Natalie did most of the dirty work he took credit for. He exiled himself a couple times, didn't share his HOH camera, talked non-stop (usually about himself), and generated more hate around the BB interwebs than most.

    Team Offbeat - Won: 1 week banana gig
    Videos of him & Jessie together surfaced early and their covert partnership ran the house for two weeks, but that deal expired after the Ronnie Mutiny was forgotten and Casey was blamed for Natalie's hinky vote. His quick wit provided memorable one-liners on a daily basis, and they only got better from both Angry Banana and Sad Banana. He came in like an aging Mike Boogie but he got past that, earning lots of fans thanks to his humor, his laid back style, and his ability to not take it all so seriously.

    Team Popular - Won: Nothing
    She was the star of the first CBS eps although she was barely in there. Her boobies were a show in themselves, and she protested way too much about the attention they got (usually while thrusting them at anyone handy). Mostly she was a miseryguts, glaring & pouting, and claiming to have everything figured out like BB9 Allison but with Shelley Duvall's voice. Her face-off with Jessie was memorable thanks to 'let me get down to your level', 'you're not the boss of me' and 'thrown under the river'.

    Team Popular - Won: Nothing
    His nekkid pics got out before the premiere, he said Julie's a ho, and he started a race riot in there - but his target Kevin wasn't offended by the words as much as that they hadn't been buddies. The habitat went nuts waffling about his eviction vote (vs Chima) but he was barely involved, although he did provide the fodder for her most shocking nominee speech ever. Despite all that, Braden turned out to be a funny hamster and a great third to the Jeff & Jordan comedy team.
