This site is about the Big Brother 12 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.

9pm Pacific/midnight Eastern
It's a whole different show than CBS puts on the air

Rachel & Brendon are nominated
Kathy, Ragan, Matt, Rachel are Have-nots

Veto comp is Friday
Next CBS show is Sunday 8pm
Julie flirts with Craig Ferguson on Late Late Show Monday
First live show & eviction, and saboteur identity revealed Thursday

Thursday's premiere placed second for the hour with 7.3 million viewers, 4.4 rating and 8 share, behind 'Wipeout' on ABC with 7.9/4.3/8. The two shows tied with 18-49s.
Rating = % of all TV households
Share = % of households watching TV

CBS is collecting $1 per text vote for you to tell them your guess who the saboteur is. No, they really are.

Hamsters have already been told there's a saboteur among them. We'll find out who it is on July 15.

Saboteur will get $50k if s/he lasts five weeks undetected, and s/he might be able to stay to play to win (my guess: it will depend on his or her fan appeal).

Have-Nots have their own room again, and slop.

Nobody knows why Paolo isn't there.

The winner of BB12 will win $500k again. Hamsters will probably still earn $750 a week including pre-show hotel and jury sequester.

The habitat has 52 cameras and 95 microphones.

    And we're off, with a bang

    The Summer of Stabotage kicked off with a new format for the feeds, which nobody's too thrilled with.. SuperPass is still ironing out some tech kinks, some folks had trouble seeing them at all, and most of us are still trying to figure out a new windows arrangement for our desktops.. my biggest problem is the much larger drain on system resources than the RealPlayer streams used, and it's slowing my BB multi-tasking way down

    But all that's what it is and there's not much we can do about it.. on the plus side, the video quality is superb and the other-feed thumbnails are handy.. I have faith that the audio glitches will be ironed out soon

    Habitat-wise, the big story is the late night makeout session between nominees Rachel & Brendon, and it wasn't their first time.. there looked to be a little hand action undercovers but I'm guessing they haven't done the deed (yet).. CBS needs this kind of thing, so I'm thinking one of them might get veto'd off and the replacement will go home

    It's way too early to be caught up on alliances and I'm not even going to try until I see many more convos in twos and threes, especially since so many of them said they planned to lie.. pre-feeds, there was some kerfuffle over the players picked for veto, and a nasty hammock incident that left some residue, but I don't know the details of either

    The main thing is we're back, we have a not-so-diverse group (despite the promises of "most diverse cast EVER") but overall they don't seem too awful and I think we're in for some good feeds this summer

    Please don't make me keep saying "get the feeds" - just do it
    Thanks to those who have signed up thru my links already

    "There's a saboteur in the house"

    As threatened, Julie informed them right off the bat about the lamest twist to come along yet.. by the time the feeds start tonight, they may already have figured out who it is - it shouldn't be too hard: it's the hamster with bits of duct tape stuck to his or her shoe

    But perhaps they'll wait for us to choose whether the saboteur duct tapes everyone's clothes together or writes KICK ME on someone's shirt in glow in the dark ink - these are the only two submitted ideas (of thousands) that the new official twitter said "good one!" about.. if they add mustard squirting, they've got a multiple choice to get some text vote cash and a load of advertising dollars site hits for

    But none of that matters really, because tonight the feeds begin and our fun with it.. who cares what junk CBS puts on the air? The real show of the summer is the one that keeps us glued to our monitors: cozy bedroom chats, smokers counting their remaining cigs, spontaneous group activities, canoodling in the open or undercovers, whispering, backstabbing, shouting and fighting.. it's aawwwwnnn!

    More later, much later.. if you haven't caught up with all the pre-season stuff yet, there's lots here: click the "past" link or Daily Index tab above

    Daily Ratings - First night of feeds edition

    Ratings are based on entertainment value - why do I always say this? Because some people continue to think my ups & downs are about whether I like them or not, even after seven seasons of arrows.

    Ups are simply for returning. We got the surprised key presentations I expected (why surprised? There's a camera crew in your house!) but we didn't get earthquake reactions: silly me, I wasn't thinking. They'd have to admit the hamsters moved in days ago to show yesterday's quake, when the show intro said 'Tonight 13 strangers will enter the house'. The twist is beyond dumb, especially in the proposed execution - let's face it: he or she will be caught and/or kept if CBS wants him or her to be. All the BB10 hamsters guessed Dan was AP, but he got to stay and keep the money.. whatever. The best thing about the twist is (yet another) official tweet typo calling it 'stabotage'.. that one's gonna stick.

    Most of them hate him already, and more so for the fact that he's got the hot dog equivalent of an immunity idol. A bunch of them sat around bitching about his kosher ways, but that's what hamsters do: villify those they don't like (read: don't understand). 'Where's my yarmulke?' will be heard a lot.

    The feeds kicked off with Andrew sticking his head up her skirt, and she proceeded to bitch about it for an hour as her way of introducing herself to us. She was all primed to be a big fan favorite and she turned out to be a drama queen. But it's early, and the first week either has everything or nothing to do with what follows - we can look back later and decide which this was. She did loosen up enough to do some surprisingly good BB10 Renny impressions.

    He's already showmancing with Rachel, but all they talk about is game so it's the kind of thing that will end when they hit Julie's boudoir, if not before. Late nighters saw the two of them making out hot 'n heavy, then she sent him on his way alone, cover-up blankie in place, and now we know why the others were talking about how much he masturbates.

    Won: $10
    She's starting off well, with lots of personality and one-liners. It might get old soon but for now she's golden, and as a bonus, she's actually seen some feeds and read some BB sites! She's also the most photogenic so far, judging from the caps I snapped, which is ironic considering she's a hotel worker and there are three pro models there. Her hair is going to be fascinating: I have no idea what's going on there. It's nesty.

    Guido Howie is off to a good start and can be really funny, but he might also get real annoying.. it's too early for me to call. I liked the trainwreck factor of 'Jersey Shore' as much as the next person, but I had my fill of it long ago and I don't know yet what else Enzo brings to the table.

    I don't really have much on him, but I figure the Justin Bieber crowd will like him.

    She has some real potential for being funny and she's a first class catty gossiper with Annie, but she's sick, banged up and badly bruised so she wasn't up to par tonight. I'll give her a pass for now, but she'll need to get better and step it up soon. Her eyelashes are something else - they're like caterpillars.

    Won: $100
    I didn't get much from her other than being real friendly with Ragan for a bit. I'm sure bikini fans enjoyed her sparkly green number.

    Won: $1,000
    I had guessed and hoped he might enjoy his food like BB9 Ryan and sure enough, he dug into a big plate of pizza like a champ and savored every bite to the max. That brought back fond memories of Ryan's showmance with Digiorno and that's worthy of ups.

    Won: $1
    I think he's going to give good feeds, but I didn't get much on him tonight. I know, I keep saying that, but there was a hell of a lot going on and they were all on first night behavior. Give me a day or two to get up to speed.

    Won: $10,000
    Where's the spoiled princess she promised us? Sorry, but I barely saw her and when I did, she was helping to clean the kitchen. This from the girl who famously announced she doesn't lift a finger at home. Later she was moaning to Kathy about how everyone wanted her gone, and it seems that a lot do. She was involved in some pre-feeds incident but I don't think it was much, as some of them barely know who she is: Lane called her Chima once and Enzo called her Monique.

    She's everywhere already, much of that likely thanks to her gigantic boobies - the feedmasters like that stuff. She doesn't seem too bothered about being nominated and that's a good thing, and she's already going at it with Brendon, which left him very bothered. Her laugh is going to be a problem.

    They all seem to like him and while we didn't get a lot of his promised hilarity, at least he's animated and lively. He & Kristen seem to have bonded but I didn't notice any of the guys who said they'd align with the gay guy cozied up with him. He's not nearly as irritating as his pre-season stuff led us to believe he might be, but again, it's just our first day.

    Rachel: He wears a yom kippur

    Britney: I lost my dignity on a slippery wiener

    Kathy: Anything you say can and will be misquoted and used against you

    Enzo: That definitely arose a red flag
