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

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!

The official story is Chima was booted. We will never know the complete true 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

Food comps determine living conditions: the losers lived in the Jail room with lights always on (now over); 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.

Sadly, Craig Ferguson was not recycled back in this year.

    Actually the mother of all placeholders since any of three hamsters could have gone tonight, and I didn't want to prepare all those "just in case" pages ahead of time.. I am very grateful to Chima for taking the Diary exit early though, as tonight's outcome would have been even more uncertain if we'd had a regular Fast Forward as planned

    Jordan won the veto in a live Before/After comp about the sequence of events to date, in a tiebreaker against Michele, but contrary to Jordan's plans, she did not use it and Lydia was evicted.. HOH comp was not endurance but went on for 40 minutes after Julie left.. Jeff won by dropping cans into tubes, and Michele & Russell ended up as Have-nots - it was not on the feeds

    It was a non-stressful evening, calmer than we've seen in a long time, and they got booze.. Jeff's HOH room was fun and included a picture drawn by his niece and news of a new baby.. sex chat in the backyard led into growing up gay and other social issues

    We finally got very brief nominations talk at 3am: Jeff told Michele he's putting up Natalie & Kevin, with (another) possible backdoor plan for Russell.. hmm, if they're really planning to do that, why wouldn't they have done it tonight when he had no chance to blow up or campaign or deal for votes for a few days?

    Daily Ratings - Tropical Storm Lydia Blows Over edition

    VTE = Voted to evict
    Ratings are based on entertainment value

    Ups for packing a lot into Thursday's show and doing it relatively glitch-free. It was a surprise to see them air the Natalie/Lydia sex coming out convo but they really pulled the wool over non-feedsters' eyes by pretending they took it to the gym/spa/green room for privacy about the sex rather than the real reason, which was Lydia demanding Natalie tell her what she'd heard about Nannygate. They really downplayed the anti-Russell stuff that filled the feeds all week, but at least they finally got The Big Lie in there. The expanding Julie left the polka-dot poof home and opted for a nice green, but her hair was surprisingly stringy looking (that's a first), and she pretty much outted herself as not really being aware of what's seen & what isn't during Lydia's exit interview. But she did use the term 'veto meeting' rather than the omnipresent 'POV ceremony' and that made me happy, so I'm overlooking the fact that the HOH comp was withheld from us as well as the strobing on/off fishies all night, since that's what I've come to expect anymore.

    Team Jock Won: Hawaii trip
    VTE Lydia

    Ups for winning his first HOH even though we aren't quite sure how he did it thanks to yet another feeds blackout. He was happy to see his pics of course, and of course he was funny about them and all his swag. I'm glad he finally got his Bob Marley so maybe he'll be a bit more chill this week than last, and get back to being our fun guy more of the time. He did have a really funny routine earlier today about wanting to add 'use the right fork' to his catchphrase repertoire.. it takes a lot of explanation but it's a good one - maybe you had to be there.

    Team Popular
    No vote (HOH)

    Everyone thought she couldn't win comps but she won two in a row, and one of them under pressure on live tv so ups for that. I'm glad she didn't follow through with their plan to backdoor Russell but I'm not sure why she didn't: it would have been painless, and she & Jeff aren't thinking about jury votes as much as the rest of them are. She also finally drank some wine again and our fun Drunk Girl came back with way TMI during sex chat, plus more Jordan stories, and we even had a brief reprise of Big Texas.

    Team Offbeat Won: $10,000
    VTE Natalie

    It sounds like he came in second and might have won but for something Production did with timing, or something, but to his credit, he told Natalie he isn't going to bother making a stink about it. That fun guy was back in Diary again, but he made a brief appearance on the feeds again too by being funny & perky after the comp. He also participated in sex chat with Jordan after the wine came out, and he talked a bit about the difficulties of growing up gay before the fishies cut him off (I don't think his family signed releases). But he earned easy, easy ups when talking about whether being on Big Brother is an excusable absense from work: 'Some people think this is stupid'.

    Team Brain
    VTE Lydia

    She had a really nice late night chat with Russell and I'm expecting more this week as they'll be sharing the Jail room. As 'tight' as each of them are with Jorff and their Fractured Foursome alliance, these two control the votes this week barring use of the veto, in which case everything changes again. She slipped up again though when she told Russell she'd been hoping to win it tonight, to take Natalie off, but quick-stepped to say it would have been to make points with Natalie and that Kevin would have gone up.. ha! I think she got a little choked up during sex chat when she talked about growing up bi, but she laughed when reporting that her hubby often says she smells bad. Bonus ups for disclosing she's using her birth control pills as a calendar study aid - no Play doh or Skittles required.

    Team Jock Won: Phone call
    No vote (nominee)

    She's still annoying, especially when she talks or whispers, but once again another of her most implausible lies turned out to be true when we heard her dad indeed say that he does indeed get together with her (formerly estranged) boyfriend Jason to watch BB three times a week. It's nice to see any of them get a little contact with their family, but I had to wonder if BB10 April Dowling was in the next cubicle from Natalie's dad: they have similar jobs in auto sales, and in the same area. But maybe April moved on after all the guys at work watched her boinking Ollie.

    Team Jock Won: $10,000, Massage
    VTE Lydia

    See Michele regarding their overnight chat which was informative, interesting, and pleasant to watch. If they can trust each other enough they could easily set up their path to finals this week as co-Have-nots - but that's a very big if.

    Team Offbeat Won: Plasma TV,
    1 week Captain Unitard
    She gave HJs & a condom event for safety, then seemed to really be crushing on Jessie - against all odds. She whined, fake-cried & babytalked too much, was volatile, and the only creative one, making an amazing trashbag suit and Play-doh creations. She shlurred her screams about her catsuit costume but later wore it without complaint, and well. She may have been a damage control exit due to Mills-McCartney Nannygate but we'll never know for sure.

    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.

    Russell to Michele: 2-1 vote, me & you can do whatever we want
