I don't care who wins, I'm just here for the cheap entertainment.. the cheaper, the better
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.
THE FEEDS START TONIGHT!
9pm Pacific/midnight Eastern
It's a whole different show than CBS puts on the air
GET THEM - WATCH THEM
BB12 DRINKING GAME
Revised: Take a swig every time you get a hamster's name right.
Hayden is Head of Household
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.
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
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 CBS.com
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
