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.

We have two make-out couples

Endurance special: take a swig whenever someone out here says 'Who's still in?'

Monet evicted
Matt is Head of Household
Nobody is nominated
Enzo, Brendon, Andrew & Ragan are Have-nots

Next CBS show is Sunday 8pm: Endurance comp, nominations, assorted dramas

Nominations on Friday
Veto comp on Saturday

Thursday's show won the hour with 6.5 million viewers, 3.9 rating and 7 share, ahead of 'Minute to Win It' on NBC with 6.1/3.7/7, 'So You Think You Can Dance' on FOX with 5.6/3.5/7, and 'The Middle' reruns on ABC with 4.1/2.7/5. 'Big Brother 12' also won the 18-49 demographic.

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

Additional Have-not food items:
Sardines & sauerkraut
Prunes & paté
Baby food & bok choy
Vote free at

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.

    One more gone

    Matt & Monet packed to leave and I noticed their little official Big Brother bags have nametags attached now rather than embroidered names like they used to - could this show get any cheaper? I suspect Monet was more thorough with her packing than Matt, and she had more than a few mopey moments while doing so, but she'll be fine after hitting Julie's boudoir and hearing the thunderous (and required) applause, and remembers she's got $10k to take home

    HOH lockdown this morning began with the usual bodycount but then turned into infectious laughter as they started talking past seasons again and cracking jokes, most of it led by Britney and Ragan in turn, as usual

    Early endurance

    The big HOH endurance comp came early this year, probably to generate interest that is otherwise fading.. it was a good one: surfboards sticking out of a wall, at an angle, that withdraw and extend periodically.. the usual rain came early too and harder than usual, along with the foam guano the comp designers like so much

    Lane & Kathy came off about the same time just as the feeds came back, followed by Kristen, Hayden, and Britney, making them all Haves for the week, as this takes the place of the food comp for Sunday's show

    Enzo & Brendon came off next, making them the first Have-nots.. Andrew looked like he was struggling for awhile but held out til about the 90 minute mark.. Matt & Ragan sent everyone inside (and they went!) so they could run the scenarios.. Ragan said he was willing to give it to Matt but didn't want to come off too quickly "for appearances", and apparently he did - we came back from extended bubbles to Matt wearing the key

    They made them and us wait around for hours to finish talk-about-the-comp Diaries and when Matt's room reveal and letter-reading finally came, they blocked it from us.. boo hiss

    I'll stop pushing the feeds now for the most part,
    but big ups to everyone who signed up thru my links

    Daily Ratings - Surf's Up edition

    VTE = Voted to evict
    Ratings are based on entertainment value

    Didn't they block the finish of the endurance from us once before? I don't even notice the bubbles anymore, they come so often, but during an endurance comp finish is out of line but unfortunately, expected. Ditto with Matt's room reveal and importantly, his letter from wife Stacy.

    As for Thursday's show, they screwed up the day count by putting the veto meeting on Day 16, when it happened on Day 17. I'm glad they included the house meeting, but pasting in Andrew's reactions from a whole 'nother day was silly and unnecessary. They made a point to add Kathy & Kristen back to the show, and Ragan caused a stir with his West Hollywood line, but Matt won the night by calling Julie 'Chenbot' - I think that was the first time it's been uttered on primetime.

    VTE Monet - 8th out
    Kudos to him for lasting as long as he did, especially when he was clearly not enjoying himself and having a hard time. Ragan promised him safety on the surfboards but Matt didn't. We didn't hear the final deal but gauging from the last I heard, Andrew should be safe tomorrow.

    VTE Monet - 7th out
    His ass flop dismount combined with his reaction to the three 'wimpier' guys beating him was all funny enough to earn ups, but I just can't stomach his kissyface with Rachel or his 'Pleasantville' teenage routine another minute. A helpful Hamsterwatcher came up with a very interesting link naming him (on page 4) for a 7-day suspension of his California teaching credential in 2008 for misconduct.. what's that about?

    Won: $10
    VTE Matt - 5th out
    She didn't do great on the comp but she was hilarious during HOH lockdown this morning as well as in her Diaries on the show, especially her farewell to Monet. CBS is trying hard to paint her as a witch but one of these days they'll realize who their star is.

    VTE Monet - 6th out
    He ate a slice of pizza but only got 'a warning' since penalty nominations are a myth and don't really exist. I don't know why all the Have-nots don't grab some pizza, especially after he got away with it. He was funny after the comp when he realized he didn't want HOH anyway and could have eaten this week if he'd come off sooner.

    VTE Monet - 4th out
    I barely saw him today or tonight aside from glaring at the 'wimpier' guys who outlasted him, but I got a kick out him using fingerquotes on the show to describe his 'showmance' with Kristen.

    VTE Matt - 1st or 2nd out
    She's Matt's main target per his pre-blockage convo with Ragan on the boards, but previously the plan for him & his boys was to get rid of Brendon at any cost. Either could go and our feeds would improve, but I have to hand it to Kathy for confessing to having snuck a cigarette during their long, long lockdown.

    Won: $100
    VTE Monet - 3rd out
    She doesn't do much for me one way or the other, but she's better than Rachel at least. Her boobies were caught on cam today, and can be seen on my adult page - thanks to Camlawnman for the tip.

    Won: $1,000
    VTE Monet - 1st or 2nd out
    I didn't see much of him today either and that's too bad, as he gets more interesting every day. Tonight he talked about ailerons and planes and flying them, which I didn't see coming.

    Won: $1
    No vote (nominee)
    Easy ups for a successful, non-Dustinish pawn-me effort and the very convenient endurance win that followed. I'm really ticked they withheld his HOH letter from us since it had more chance of containing clues than any we've heard before. He & Ragan were both coasting along on those surfboards and looked like they could have each lasted a few more hours.. I kind of wish they had.

    No vote - didn't compete (HOH)
    OMG YOU GUYS!!!! They all like TOTALLY hate her and HER MAN!!! Her rain is over OBVI so now they HATE HER and it's NOT FAIR!!!! She is a GOOD person and HER MAN is so dreeeeeamy they totally DON'T DESERVE to be anyone's target NOW after such an awesome cool week when everybody LOVED HER SOOOOOO MUCH!!! It was AMAZE but now they HATE HER and she's going to CRY some more now!!!! VEGASSSSS IN THE BIG BRO HIZZIE!!!!!! slurpydurp xoxo

    VTE Monet - 9th out
    Easy ups for his surprisingly strong performance on the comp, his gracious default to Matt even though it puts him on slop for a second time, for calculating just how to do it so the others wouldn't catch on, and for the comedy in morning lockdown, on the apparatus and after, even though he crashed badly later and cried about his dad. Bonus ups are for the shout-out to everyone who picked on him in high school.. you go, Ragan!

    Won: $10,000
    She promised princessy but failed to deliver, opting instead for poor-me tears, complaints about being fat, and a lot of moping around. But she wasn't all doom & gloom: she rode the slip 'n slide and made fun of her keep-warm sleeping layers, and she was Britney's #1 mean girl cohort. She tried out for ANTM and might have fared better there, as they wouldn't have flashed her boobies.

    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.

    Lucky #14 got away before the season began without any secrets exposed or embarrassing incidents to live forever on the web. Her dirty laundry will remain in the hamper, but boobies fans will be forever disappointed and wonder 'what if?'

    Britney about BB11 Natalie:
    Jessie's gym shorts were her [wedding] garter
    Since Jessie couldn't get anything from Natalie, he went to her enemy Lydia and built tents

    Matt: Natalie, you suck
