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 Wednesday 8pm: Veto comp, waffles deluxe, Brendon's babytears, veto meeting, assorted dramas

Veto meeting Monday

Sunday's show won the hour 6.9 million viewers, 4.2 rating and 8 share, ahead of 'Law & Order' on NBC with 4.5/3.0/6, 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition' rerun on ABC with 4.5/2.9/5, and 'The Simpsons' & 'The Cleveland Show' reruns on FOX with 3.5/2.0/4 & 3.8/2.0/4 respectively. 'Big Brother 12' 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

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.

    Bikini hour

    It's hot in SoCal and they have no sanctioned activities and can't think up their own, so it was a lot of slow pans over baking bodies and leisurely paddling around the pool this afternoon, and not a lot else

    Last night's drama seemed mostly forgotten and the slurpy honeymoon is back on.. comedy and sex chat was back in place downstairs and straddly massages were back in place upstairs: at one point, Rachel effectively removed Brendon from a marathon trashtalk session with Kathy by massaging & burying him under her in the bed - Kathy was also in the bed

    "Can I use the bathroom up here?"

    Brendon & Andrew planned for Andrew to act angry at his impending nomination, much the same as Matt planned to act angry at his nomination.. also similarly, Brendon & Andrew hope to make it appear that Andrew isn't aligned with Brendon & Rachel, and they hope to "split the house" - yawn.. Ragan tried to talk Rachel, Brendon, Kathy & Kristen out of the Pawn Andrew plan, explaining 100 reasons why it's too risky.. in short, everyone but Rachel is HOH, and we've got our usual steady diet of pointless waffles

    Next, Hayden was summoned to the HOH summit, and a bit later Andrew & Matt went up to do some recon work.. Rachel peeked out the door, squeezed through it and closed it behind her like she had a boyfriend on each side of it, telling them to come back later.. this was reported back to the backyard crew with glee & derision, and the house is now officially split

    At this point, they've waffled back from Andrew's backup pawn-me offer to Matt's original pawn-me offer, but don't expect that or anything else to be their final answer - Rachel & Brendon got into another fight over it as soon as all their visitors finally left.. the stocks bell did not ring until 2am instead of at the height of the habitat splitting in two, so we were cheated out of a housewide backyard fight with the newly-formed two sides and various double agents confronting each other, so all in all, this night was just another wasted booze delivery

    Hayden & Kristen, the backup showmance to the failed Rachel & Brendon disaster and associated viewer vomit, continued to heat things up in the greenlight.. it's funny how they came together last week to talk alliance and game in the late nights, and now this.. Rachel threw them together for her Final 4 double date dream and Diary likely encouraged that, but they don't seem to mind

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

    Daily Ratings - Leggo my Eggo edition

    Ratings are based on entertainment value

    On Sunday's show, the duct tape crucifixion comp was a cute way of using up all the unused & leftover stabo weaponry, but that's where my praise ends. Brendon's SWIM COACH graphic in his Diary about his science stuff was odd, as was the full moon flying across the sky again - there still hasn't been a full moon this month. They showed Rachel & Brendon's HOH win celebrations and the suspicion about Andrew celebrating too much, but they conspicuously omitted their three-way gigantic secret hug.. why? They're highlighting Britney's (very funny) mean girl stuff but painting her one dimensionally with only that.. why?

    I'll tell you why: I suspect they're scrambling to figure out WTF to do with this group since they lost their twist at the get-go, and it's not in their DNA to let things play out on their own and edit what actually happens into three hours of tv per week. We all know Diary 'leads' and 'suggests' at the very least, and this whole double pawn-me stuff smells a bit fishy to me, particularly since BB8 Dustin's name has yet to come up. Coincidentally (or not) nearly every other BB8 hamster's name HAS come up in the last 24 hours, but even Ragan somehow 'forgot' about Dustin and how his infamous pawn-me offer shot him right out the door. Conspiracy theories and paranoia on my part? Maybe, but I find it hard to believe that Ragan would blank on the only pair of openly gay guys in any season*, and one of the most famous evictions in 11 seasons. Also, I have a premonition that hamsters & feedsters who don't like all the comp events crammed into a couple days followed by days of nothing will enjoy a new spread-out schedule before long.
    *Not including BB9 Neil & Joshuah, since CBS has erased Neil's existence.

    Pawn-me, pawn-me-not. His little tap on the upstairs door with Matt was the highlight of the night, but Andrew's actoring wasn't all that great when he reported Rachel's door squeeze to the backyard crew. Andrew's in bed with far too many people, and the walls should start closing in on him soon.

    He was a lot more assertive with Rachel than last night, to the point of yelling at her for starting all over again after her house of waffles finally closed for the night. Maybe Diary gave him a hit of testosterone today because he turned from a sniveling passive-aggressive wimp to an aggressive bully. Or maybe they just told him to man up.

    Won: $10
    She was the star of the show tonight, and also the star of the feeds by default since she's the one they all kept talking about in HOH. The producers will catch on soon that there's a lot more to her than her catty bitching with Monet, but they'll probably ignore it since they insist on shoving 'love to hate' down our throats every year. That'll be their loss again, since most viewers are liking the hell out of Britney, and those who hate her simply hate her. Feeds-wise, Rachel, Kathy and Kristen don't seem to have heard the news that Britney won the veto.

    He didn't get as much face-time on the feeds tonight due to everyone else being sucked into the swirling vortex of Rachel's HOH, but he kept up his running commentary just the same. Fortunately.

    Kristen finally wormed her way into the HOH crowd with mutual Britney Hate and was able to get Hayden summoned too. He got an earful but how much of it he remembers, how much he can relate to his boys, and how much he chooses to keep to himself remains to be seen.

    She's spent more time in the HOH room than Rachel has, and she's been even more annoying - and that's saying something. She sounded surprised, shocked and scared to learn tonight that there are BB sites that are mean to them. Contrary to TPTB official opinion and their list of approved site(s), this is not one of them. I try hard to not be hurtful but sometimes the truth hurts, and sometimes people confuse the two.

    Won: $100
    The next queen bee of BB12 has begun to unfurl her wings and sharpen her stinger. You have been warned.

    Won: $1,000
    He acts the country bumpkin but he knows more than he lets on. When he does let on, it's to the point, accurate, and funny. We need more of that, and we need more of his Sonny & Cher shtick with Britney. I know he finished his stocks assignment last night but I didn't have a chance to use the pic til now.

    Won: $1
    It's easy automatic ups any time a hamster talks to us, especially when it's done with such glee. I'm still waiting for his pawn-me Diary but I'm 98% convinced he knows exactly what he's doing and that he'll emerge victorious with all of them owing him a big one.

    Won: $10,000
    She's the one everyone but Britney wants gone but we've gone through hell two nights running over who should go up against her. What's wrong with this picture? A forgotten nominee is one thing, but a nominee ending up in the 'Who?' category might be a first.

    Worst HOH ever. One day of idiotic behavior, irrational decisions, continuous self-contradictory proclamations, generally rotten strategies, forcing housewide marathon wafflefests, and making a how-to video guide for being a girlfriend from hell to the boyfriend from hell are all hugely amusing. A second day of same is torture.

    He's good when he's being Ragan, the funny, bright, personable and genuine individual. When he's being the Voice of Reason, the charm wears off somewhere around the third hour.

    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.
