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.

Next CBS show is Sunday 8pm
Veto meeting is Sunday
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 know 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 again, and popcorn.

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.

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

    The twist goes thud - or not

    They got a new stabotage video, in which s/he told them something about two of them in there knowing each other, a "lifelong friendship" or somesuch.. being hamsters, none of them could give a direct quote but it was something along those lines

    Since Julie already told them the staboteur would be stabotaging them, there was very little havoc wreaked this time: most of them realized the ploy for what it likely was: a ploy to develop the twist a bit, but hey, they've got some footage for CBS now for all their ads hyping up havoc, and they also got some feedsters making guesses even though we were all warned this would happen, too

    Other notable events today included Andrew eavesdropping from the HOH balcony, and Annie getting her mic cord caught on something, which pulled off her bikini top for a second - I don't think it was on feeds but she does, and shortly before that she was saying how much she hoped something like that wouldn't happen.. Rachel & Brendon did some straddling/massaging which led to some slurpy kissyfacing, like it does

    We had more laying around than we should this early but we had a few spatlets about who told Annie about the backdoor plan; some excellent comedy sessions starring Britney & Enzo plus Matt, and Ragan & Brendon plus Matt - Matt gets around; and a sudden rain downpour when they were on outside lockdown which was quite fun for us

    They got some booze for Showtime and had some impromptu drunken gymnastics by Monet, Rachel & Kristen (except slopper Rachel wasn't drunk), and some drunken cheerleading by Britney.. evening Diaries resulted in the usual waffling, and now they're all talking as if Annie isn't even an option

    You really need to get the feeds now or you'll never catch up

    Daily Ratings - Getting stabby edition

    Ratings are based on entertainment value

    The staboteur's video visit got the dopey ones guessing but the brainy ones just laughed about it, taking a little wind out of the WREAK HAVOC sails. But then they got childish about it by forbidding the hamsters to discuss the subject, probably so people playing at home wouldn't catch on too. Hello? What's the point of having a Duct Tape Staboteur if you don't even let them talk about it? Stabotage, shmabotage. As for feedsters who fell for the whole thing and started looking for connections that would have turned up a week before the premiere if they existed, well, those folks clearly aren't listening to me anyway. BB6/7 James Rhine has the best idea and the only one that could save this sorry mess: if they told each of them they were the staboteur, we'd have a show.

    He's still operating on a lower profile than our first introduction to him, but he's got some good moments and he's terrific fodder for the others to laugh at and/or with. When sundown came he tossed his yarmulke aside, and had yarmulke hair the rest of the evening.

    This girl is drama with a capital D, and isn't that what we want from our hamsters? She cried, whined, grouched, nip-slipped, made grumpy faces, and wore a big plastic flower most of the day, and then she outted herself to Kristen and confessed she has a girlfriend rather than the deeply detailed boyfriend she told them all about. After that kind of evictable behavior, she suddenly wasn't an option to send home anymore. Exactly how does that work, unless Diary wants needs to keep her around as their twist mascot? However it happens, I hope she stays as she's volatile and kind of odd, and she's my selected victim for amateur psychoanalysis this season.

    He's the real HOH this week, and not just because he's got the veto. He also seems to be in a lot of alliances - most of them, in fact. For the psychological profile file, he told Ragan today that he was bullied as a child. He reminds me of BB5 Drew since all he wants to do is sleep, lay around and slurp with Rachel. He's a lot brainier than Drew was, but like Diane, I suspect Rachel's smarter than he is.

    Won: $10
    She keeps coming up with one-liners and funny stories, even as she's getting a little bitchier every hour. And that's okay. She seems to be stringing Lane along which may or may not mean anything, but I have a feeling that might lead to some fights or fireworks sooner or later.

    His act is going to get old but it isn't yet: it's been a long time since we had a true comedian in the habitat. He's a keeper, at least for now. I'm not on board with this whole Brigade nonsense: Enzo said before going in his crew was going to be called Meow Meow and that's the only alliance name I'll acknowledge this season.

    Qualified ups as his head is getting ready to explode and I like the buildup. Of all people, he's the one who said Diary's been working on him to keep Annie, and that they wouldn't want to cut her loose if she's the staboteur. That's logical enough but I'm stunned he put that together by himself - I didn't think he could even find his way upstairs without a guide.

    I know for a fact she isn't Britney's mom so you can all get right off of that train. She finished her meds and is feeling so much better that she got on everyone's nerves in just a few hours. I lucked out somehow and didn't catch her talking herself up too much, so I can't complain about that. Now that she's up from her sickbed she's getting around even more - when she gets off slop, look out! She's reminding me of BB5 Karen, who was a BB mastermind wrapped in a ditzy package, but without the ditz. Her roots are epic: it's only Day 8!

    Won: $100
    She's coming out a little more and she's starting to talk up a storm, but only in one-on-one situations. If there really was a lifelong relationship in there, I'd guess she & Hayden are twins. But there isn't and they aren't, so they're free to pursue each other.

    Won: $1,000
    He keeps saying he doesn't want to get involved in any of the roundabout strategizing and alliance switching, and that's okay because there's plenty of pizza in the pantry.

    Won: $1
    He's one of the brainier brains in there, which is saying something considering we have a doctor, a PhD, a PhD-to-be, a cop, and a bikini chemist something. I would really like to hear some interesting conversations one of these years, and we actually have the potential for that with this group if Team Brainy can stick around and get rid of Team Dummy. But with our luck, it'll be the other way around. The tattoo they make him cover up is the Nirvana logo.

    Won: $10,000
    Who? The only thing I saw her do today was announce adamantly that New York time is four hours ahead of California, but that's enough to promote her from negative to neutral, even though she didn't do it with nearly as much pizazz as BB10 Renny.

    Her laugh remains a problem and her slurpy slurp with Brendon is icky, but you have to give her credit for staying afloat when all the girls hate her, for not griping about being nominated and knowing she'll stay nominated, and for not only not complaining about being on slop, but she actually starred in drunken gymnastics when she couldn't even have any booze.

    He knows the staboteur hasn't been revealed to us yet, but he won't say how he knows. He's working real hard all the time but he's doing it quietly, which is the way to go. I'm concerned about his swollen lymph nodes and it doesn't sound like BB has gotten a medic in to see him yet. He keeps saying it's stress or whatever, but they should override that as lymphs can be very serious business. His comedy is coming out gradually and it's good, and he does some great impressions of former hamsters, particularly BB11 Jordan and BB10 Keesha.
