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.

Veto meeting Sunday or Monday
Next CBS show is Sunday 8pm: HOH room reveal, assorted dramas, nominations, stabo reveal for them, food comp

Thursday's eviction show placed second for the hour with 7 million viewers, 4.1 rating and 8 share, behind 'Wipeout' on ABC with 7.8/4.3/8, and ahead of 'Glee' rerun on FOX with 3.6/2.4/5, and 'Community' & '30 Rock' reruns on NBC with 2.4/1.7/3 and 2.4/1.6/3 respectively. 'Wipeout' also won the 18-49 demographic.

Rating = % of all TV households
Share = % of households watching TV

Additional Have-not food items:
Fruit cake & fish sticks
Kathy won the poll for those who wanted to pay $1 to play Guess the Stabo.

The saboteur was Annie. She'd have won $50k if she lasted five weeks undetected.

Annie has been sequestered so we might end up with Revive-a-Hamster

Have-Nots have their own room again, and slop again, and popcorn, plus additional food items decided by viewer votes.

Nobody knows why Paolo isn't there.

The winner of BB12 will win $500k and 2nd place gets $50k. Hamsters 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.

All feeds stay on one 'scene' when someone's in Diary.

    Britney saves herself, and us

    Britney won the veto in an endurance comp of some sort that involved hanging or hanging on.. this is good news for anyone who wants entertainment of any type on the feeds - we can't afford to lose her yet

    It sounds like they had to hang for what they thought was an hour maybe, "without going over".. they hung on to briefcases which is an upgrade from toilet seats anyway, and they wore neckties to complete the theme.. Britney did 52 minutes, and it sounds like Enzo lost by 14 seconds - it was about 96° out there so time would drag.. the feeds came back to Monet in tears again, and all seem in agreement that it was a freak win in some way or another.. some have to spend time in stocks in the backyard

    Rachel & Brendon talked about trying to convince Britney not to use it, yet Rachel says she doesn't want to backdoor anyone - go figure.. later he got a bit snippy with her, complaining about slop and sleeping on a chaise lounge - she didn't complain once about it last week.. the rest of the afternoon & evening was a cavalcade of bubbles and whispers, and Rachel asking everyone what she should do.. it's pointless to follow any of this as it will all change a dozen times before the meeting and a hundred times before the vote

    You've got to be kidding

    To complicate things even more, Matt showed up to HOH and volunteered to pawn himself.. he confirmed with Enzo later that it was a calculated move designed to distance himself from the slurpmance duo, and to buy future favors

    Then Andrew offered to pawn himself, Rachel & Brendon argued, Brendon stomped off, Rachel cried, and Brendon & Andrew had a quick check-in agreeing to let Matt do it, and they'd get him out

    It's been the most ridiculous post-veto comp scenario ever, and I don't think anyone's mentioned BB8 Dustin

    To top it off, around 11.30pm a bell rang and Rachel, Monet, Brendon and Lane took up residence in the new backyard stocks for an hour, as some sort of consequence of the veto comp.. BB8's backyard slop showers and especially the bunny suits were far more inspired, but it's an odd coincidence (or not) that both humiliating veto consequences and volunteer pawns from that season showed up on the same day.. nobody's mentioned Dustin as of this writing, which is beyond peculiar with all these pawn-me offers.

    On the plus side, the ants have made their move and have already taken over several areas of the kitchen.. they may have met their match in Deputy Kathy as she's serious about her can of bug spray, but we all know the ants won't give up without a very long fight, and they will most likely emerge victorious, as always

    It's serious now that they know evictions are real - get the feeds to watch it unfold

    Daily Ratings - Pawn Me Twice special edition

    Ratings are based on entertainment value

    They need to feed some new ad copy to Superpass, as the 24/7 feeds banners promising 'Be the first to watch the Saboteur live' were misleading at first - we never saw squat - and they're now past their sell-by date. I keep hoping they'll do something to stir up this group of snores but it seems an hour in stocks is the best they got. I'm not giving up on the season yet, but if it doesn't liven up soon, we'll all be able to watch 'Pillars of the Earth'.

    Today's pics are all horizontal except his, since he didn't even show up on my feeds til around 7pm when everyone was all revved up. Ups are for continuing to call Brendon Brandon. Also because he seems to be in bed with everyone, and therefore safe for weeks and weeks. He's one to watch but he works fast in quickie meetings so it's hard to catch him at work. It sounds like his pawn-me offer might be the one Rachel takes up, but it's still early.

    Let's take a quick inventory here. He whines about being a Have-not, eating slop & fruitcake, sleeping on a chaise lounge, standing in stocks, and for being shushed by Rachel once or twice while she was having her HOH deliberations. He blew all that up into a tearful near-breakup with his girlfriend of two weeks, who ended up apologizing to him for all of that! Both of them forgot that she went through all the same while being on the block and without the fruitcake, and she never complained once. I'd say something obvious like 'man up' here, but his tearful, childish passive-aggressive rants are the best amusement we've had yet.

    Won: $10
    Of course she won the veto: we need her desperately in this house of wet blankets. Her weather reports are a fun new item in her repertoire, and I think she and BB6/7 Howie should get a weekly show on the Weather Channel.

    We had more comedy in solo sets and duets with Britney during the stocks, and while half of them were making elaborate dinner plans, he sat there forlornly poking at his fish sticks and making plans for a bowl of ketchup later. This guy is feedster gold.

    He's dangerously close to slipping into the Who? category, despite a quick make-out session with Kristen in the greenlight.

    Her buttinsky style is getting more obvious every day, but she topped it off by walking in on the end of Brendon & Rachel's honeymoon not once, but twice!

    Won: $100
    She today's Link of the Day. I can't see anything else when I look at her now.

    Won: $1,000
    I didn't see much of him today other than the stocks, which he didn't like but he coped with better than Brendon, but I did catch another round of his ranching stories. PETA reps are zeroing in on him and I expect they'll have him in their crosshairs in 5.. 4.. 3..

    Won: $1
    Pawn me? Really? This guy is famously Mensa and a BB superfan, and he says pawn me? Well, none of them know seem to remember Dustin (even though his infamy oozed outside the BB world all the way to reality clipdown shows), so I guess we're looking at it like a new thing. Surely Matt's well aware of what happened to Mr Erikstrup when he made his generous offer, but he's willing to take the gamble. Hopefully he's calculated the risk - which could have a sweet payoff in the future if successfull - but we'll have to wait for his Diaries to know for sure.

    Won: $10,000
    This week's forgotten nominee is the one they all want gone, so they all ran around in a panic fighting over who should go up against her. Sure, that makes sense.

    She keeps comparing herself to BB6/7 Janelle and to be honest, there are some similarities in her nomination sway-me style, but Janelle and most every other HOH with an IQ greater than a 4-legged hamster's knows the importance of having three nominees at the ready because newsflash: vetos happen, yet somehow Britney saving herself sent Rachel on an 'expect the unexpected!' loop. Rachel wants to kick out the 'floaters' but she seems to define that as anyone who doesn't sleep in her room. She cost herself any hope of winning $500k today should she get to finals, as 'played the best game' is never defined as HOH by multiple revolving committees. She topped off a total shambles of a day by apologizing to Brendon, when he's the one who caused a crybaby stink.

    He's got the best shmooze style of them all. He gets right in where & when he needs to, get the dirt he needs, feeds the ideas that need to be fed, then he gets away gracefully and lets them think they thought it all up themselves. Game-wise, he's one of the most dangerous ones in there and he should be ousted by anyone who hopes to go the distance, but that would be our loss. If you want to learn how to get what you want from people without having to take it from them forcefully, watch this guy.

    She turned her nomination into the House of Annie and wheedled everyone for days, to no avail. She promised catfights with Britney and Rachel but nothing came of it, leaving her in the 'Who?' category for future BB trivia, even including her stabotage. She's lucky she went early: she might have cracked bad and the chops would get really brutal.
