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.

Westies can watch live at 5pm PT
thanks to DreamAngel

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

Recording farewells, picture taking, HOH blog & tweets, lots of waffling on Wednesday

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, cold showers again, slop again, plus 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.

    House meeting (Tuesday)

    Things started to stir in HOH this morning.. viewer consensus is mixed as to exactly what Rachel & Brendon got up to undercovers, but it was definitely a step or two beyond their usual slurping - at least until Kathy walked in on them, again

    Later things started to stir in the habitat for the first time all season with a round robin of she said/she said spats involving Britney & Rachel, Britney & Kristen and Britney & Kathy, which led to Britney & Rachel bonding in HOH, and Rachel telling her that Matt had pawned himself

    That led to a House Meeting called by Rachel that involved Monet crying, Matt being called out for playing both sides, Monet crying, Britney deflecting, and Monet crying.. Matt rose to the occasion by reminding them all that it's a game he's playing to win - he had trouble keeping a straight face through the flying accusations and he threw most of them for a loop with his continued spewing of common sense

    Andrew was observing Tisha B'Av all day and skipped the meeting, but he caught up quickly with his many one-on-one check-ins.. rehashes continued into the night, with booze.. Matt got bojangled and passed out.. Rachel got shmoozed by Britney, Kristen and Matt, and reverted to her original recommendation to boot Monet

    It's still a very long time til they vote with much waffling to come.. Hayden's the swing vote as he's the one still successfully playing both sides, but Kristen's wings are unfurling as predicted here the other day.. the editors have a way of listening to the hamsters rather than to those of us paying attention, so she will probably be the last one Julie calls on Thursday

    Late night quads were a first, with foreplay on four feeds.. Kathy walked in on Brendon & Rachel again, like she does, but Hayden & Kristen's covers kept moving in the greenlight

    Pawn-me Door Number One (Monday)

    After two nights of the most gargantuan waffle session of all time, Rachel replaced Britney with Matt.. he volunteered to go up before Andrew did, so maybe Rachel just wrote off all the various committee recommendations and chose by chronological order

    Monet cried, Britney cried, they did their mean girls bitchy routine, and now we're back to long days of not a lot

    Monet did her last hour in the stocks, with Rachel, who has one more to go.. they had a very uncomfortable attempt at normal conversation that went nowhere.. the rest of the day and night was a snore with absolutely nothing of note

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

    Daily Ratings - A Picture Tells a Thousand Words double edition

    Ratings are doubled up again thanks to real life interference and because I like Monday's pics

    Tuesday: Downgrade to negative since they never made Rachel do her final hour in the stocks. I felt for them for a minute during all this today, having to sit through 12 versions in Diary and trying to edit this mess for Thursday's show, but when they didn't call them in for Diaries after the meeting, I'm wondering if they'll just skip it. Rachel conveyed a message from Diary about a long lockdown tomorrow which is peculiar: it seems early for an endurance comp. Maybe they'll set up skeeball or some chuck-the-ball event, and they can practice tomorrow night.
    Monday: It seems like they've been trying to kill this thing off for the last few seasons and haven't been able to succeed. This cast should do it.

    Tuesday: I didn't see him much again, but he sure had a lot of quick meetings after the big meeting he missed. He's the most over-allied hamster we've ever seen, but that strategy hasn't worked out too well the last few seasons.
    Monday: I saw him twice today.

    Tuesday: I'm not too keen on all the 'he's gay' and 'he's a girl' stuff flying around, as that's insulting to gays and girls. He's more like a eunuch, or maybe a character from a 1950s tv show or a 'Pleasantville' boyfriend.
    Monday: He hasn't a clue what to do with Rachel even when she's draped around him. On his own, he's less interesting than pond scum.

    Won: $10
    Tuesday: Her stir-it-up skills are world class, to the point that her former prime trashtalker Rachel has come around to being her bestie. Meanwhile her comedy act with Lane gets better and better.
    Catty & bitchy, yes, but so are half the others in there. At least she's funny about it and she moves on from it, and she's even funnier when she does. Plus she knows what's going on in there.

    Tuesday: We've never had a hamster who was in such a good position and just didn't care. His nonchalant confusion and casual commentary make the whole thing more fun, and we could all take a hint from him about not taking it all so seriously.
    Monday: I don't think he'd be as excited if he won BB12 as he was with turning salsa slop into pasta.

    Tuesday: Upgrade to neutral as he somehow dodged another calling-out that he had coming. When (if) the time comes for Matt to call in a favor, this guy will be first in line. Meanwhile his whatever-it-is with Kristen is heating up.
    Monday: He's the one this week's going to hinge on, and he doesn't know or care. Note today's pic is merely to show the existence of a forehead, and to embarrass him by showing it.

    Tuesday: I was wrong: she reattached to Rachel & Brendon and then some. I'm not crazy about the word 'cockblock' but being the prude she is, she's going to be mortified when she gets out and finds out her picture is now next to it in the dictionary.
    Monday: She wasn't nominated, so she finally detached herself from Rachel & Brendon.

    Won: $100
    Tuesday: See Hayden, with an additional upgrade all the way to ups for her drunken hammock dump.
    Monday: Her showmance with Hayden is as unappealing as the other one, and her bitchfests are every bit at bitchy as Britney & Monet's - they just get less airtime.

    Won: $1,000
    Tuesday: This guy just gets better and better: the house meeting officially ended when he wandered off to find some pizza.
    Monday: I'm convinced he's the only one with any drama potential, but it'll take a lot to set him off. See today's Link of the Day for Earthdog's Sonny & Cher chop.

    Won: $1
    Tuesday: Easy upgrade to ups for being rational, accurate and entertaining when all fingers were pointing at him, and for not ratting out his homies. That would have been an easy option that many hamsters would have opted for, but he was smart enough to take the fall himself and still come through unscathed.. at least as of now. He totally earned his drinky rewards, and I hope he isn't too hung over tomorrow.
    Monday: He should be really interesting, but he usually isn't. Maybe that's just because we rarely see much of him on the feeds - they're all Brendon & Rachel all the time, shoving their gak down our throats.

    Won: $10,000
    Tuesday: No change.
    Monday: Where's the princess she promised us? Instead of hissyfits and petulance we get tears and complaints, and hers aren't funny.

    Tuesday: The worst HOH ever got a lot worse today and if Monet goes as she probably will, it will have been a total waste of an HOH to boot. If Matt goes, they'll all be better off but it won't have been Rachel's doing. Feedmasters seem to be under orders to stay on her at all times which is really hard on us, as she's incapable of shutting up even for a few seconds.
    Monday: She hasn't a clue what to do with Brendon even when she's draped around him. I'm thinking maybe she's never had a boyfriend who stuck around for conversation before.

    Tuesday: He tried to do his peacekeeper routine during the meeting but luckily for us, he was overruled. It helped that he's still in good with the HOH crowd (at least in their eyes) and has also become real cozy with Matt over the last couple days. He was also a funny drunk later on, which is always a good thing.
    Monday: He overcame the last couple days of peacekeeping and wheedling by being entertaining for a while tonight.. at least he's trying.

    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.
