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.

Pandora's Box will return
Some stabo HAVOC may return with it - see below
BB11 Jeff Schroeder will probably be showing up at some point for a cross-promo opp for his CBS webshow

Sunday's show won the hour with 7.1 million viewers, 4.2 rating and 8 share, ahead of 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition' rerun on ABC with 4.8/3.0/5, 'Law & Order: Criminal Intent' on NBC with 4.3/2.8/5, and 'The Simpsons' and 'The Cleveland Show' reruns on FOX with 3.9/2.2/4 and 3.7/2.1/4 respectively. 'Big Brother 12' also won the 18-49 demographic.

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

Who do you want to be the new staboteur to WREAK HAVOC? Winner will be announced on August 8 show.
Vote free at - Hamsterwatch endorses a boycott of this one: do not vote

Two hour finale is September 15

The second saboteur will win $20k if he or she lasts two weeks undetected. He or she will address the hamsters on August 8 show, and his or her identity will be revealed to them on the finale.

Annie & Monet have apparently been sprung from sequester so we won't have Revive-a-Hamster after all.

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

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.

    Doldrums (Tuesday)

    That's right, it's a three-fer episode on Hamsterwatch.. there's zip going on in there and real life is taking its toll - mine, that is

    I missed a lot today but I didn't miss much, if you know what I mean: the feeds stayed on Kathy & Kristen much of the day as they laid around the spa/gym/cabana, the orange room, the backyard, and the bathroom, with Kristen occasionally luring a new victim in to her everlasting monotone whine

    Ragan & Britney have been getting close to figuring out the Brigade Boyz but Ragan backed off somewhat.. Kristen came closest to the truth, after a long Diary session, but with all that, we've had no confrontations since this group is so non-confrontational, and dead boring

    Tomorrow the camera will come out and Rachel's blog should be good for a laugh again, and I'll do Rachel ratings again

    So much for that great idea (Monday)

    After all that, Britney did not use the veto, leaving feedsters shaking our heads in disappointment

    My guess is Diary did some hardcore urging this morning to prevent losing their "stars" Brendon & Hayden prematurely, and to prevent any real drama from happening.. Rachel was in there for quite awhile this morning, and they called Britney in to start the veto meeting as she was on her way to talk to Hayden

    So that's that, Showmance #2 will be cut off in favor of Slurpmance #1, and we won't get to enjoy the wrath of Rachel betrayed.. at least, not yet

    Night-time brought another Rachel & Brendan show of shows.. this one topped all that have come before and it's probably not over yet - but I suspect they soon will be

    Raising Britney (Sunday)

    Lane asked her to help out with his pushups, so she did - her 100 pounds didn't seem to faze him a bit

    Hayden got sprung from solitary early so he could watch the movie with Enzo, Rachel & Brendon, but apparently Kristen was reprimanded for chatting wigless last night - I'll take credit for that.. Brendon & Rachel had a lengthy, heated discussion about standardized testing in schools - they're fighting regularly now, which is good for us

    Otherwise it's been lots of nothing, again.. if you're tired of that and bubbles, Flashback to around 3:20am this morning for Matt doing some humping in the catsuit

    The slop thickens

    Evening brought an 11th hour plan from Hayden to get Britney to use her veto on him and get Rachel to put up Kathy, so she'd go home and Kristen could stay with Hayden.. he told Kristen about it, pitched it to Britney, and he requested an audience with Rachel via Brendon - Rachel won't like that

    Meanwhile Kristen told Kathy about it (what?!) but before Hayden pitched the plan to Rachel (& Brendon), Britney & Ragan led a hilarious round of Kathy bashing in HOH with Matt, Rachel & Brendon laughing along, and Kathy droning to Hayden about how much she wants to stay.. all I can say is it was all very interesting timing

    The pitch finally came along (but not until midnight so as not to confuse the Showtime storyline).. Hayden got tongue-tied fast but Kristen took over.. she & Rachel rehashed their fight, Andrew's eviction, and everything else under the sun.. eventually it ended with a four-way shake over their new alliance, and agreeing to try to get Britney to use the veto

    Things are starting to crack in there - see how it really happens

    Daily Ratings - Double Duty Combo edition

    Ratings are Monday's, based on entertainment value

    I'm really glad Sunday's show gave us the brouhaha during Thursday's vote and the fallout after the HOH comp, both of which contributed to the sidebar Major Fights tally (even though they were relatively minor compared to other seasons). However, ups for a good show are neutralized by springing Hayden 4 or 5 hours early and blocking his reaction to Kristen's getup. That isn't a big deal either way, but it's ridiculous how they try to keep anything remotely interesting away from us paying feedsters to save it for the CBS show. We also got an extended commercial for 'The Other Guys' (and no, Will Farrell & Mark Wahlberg were NOT in the habitat - don't believe that BS!) Allison Grodner promised in a recent interview that she'd get Hayden & Rachel to stop yelling in Diary but that didn't happen, and Rachel's screeching about her HOH room and the movie comp and everything else made my ears bleed.

    Fortunately I didn't see a lot of him but I'm wondering why he let all the overnight near-plans just come about so easily, since he normally argues whatever Rachel wants to do with her HOH. Sunday they fought about standardized testing but Monday's was a full shred affair about her love of Vegas that set him off. She dressed provocatively again (she had been conservative the last few days), got sippy, lifted her dress over her head a lot, and did her party girl routine - all of which ticked off Brendon. They nearly broke up over it this time but they slurped through once more, despite her defiant 'I AM VEGAS!' tagline.

    Won: $10
    I wish she'd been able to stick to the plan of using the veto but alas, sensibility won over, whatever the reason. Meanwhile she kept up the banter no matter what, except when Kristen sucked the life from her. She said she brought the same dress as Rachel's peacock number but in pink, and now she doesn't want to wear it.. who can blame her?

    Won: 42" 3D TV
    He too keeps the banter going no matter how dismal everything else is, and I'm grateful for that. Unfortunately the feedmasters don't show him enough, usually opting for miseryguts Kristen & Kathy instead.. that's just wrong.

    Won: 24 18 hours solitary
    He's still in there and whether by luck or design, he seems to be in a good position. I was glad to see him tell the whole Use The Veto plan to Matt but sorry it didn't work, as it's high time for some Rachel & Brendon backlash in there. I wasn't pleased that his 24 hours of solitary got cut short, but that's how they do it on this show.

    We were THIS close to being rid of her but now she's going to drone on for another week, at least. She'll never live down the root beer episode.

    Won: $100, 1 week wig & catsuit
    Being a miseryguts is one thing, but when they go down the 'I deserve to be here!' road is when I cut them off.

    Won: $1,000
    He's not nearly as dumb as he looks but fortunately his comedy is top rate, if a bit odd. His main contribution to the Vegas fiasco was that he doesn't want to go because he can't shoot turtles there.

    Won: $1
    He's still there, watching it all and biding his time. He's playing the best game of any of them but unfortunately for him, the best player rarely wins this thing.

    Won: $5,000
    Her cycles of flaunt it/argue it/cry about it are getting old but tonight's was a doozy, especially when she picked up for round two. Right after making up with HER MAN, she went downstairs and started up her whole Vegas routine again, this time pulling off her dress and practically her bikini top with it for the backyard boyz. Kudos to her for not bowing down to Brendon's bullying, even if she does it in such a ridiculous way.

    Won: Veto ticket
    He had a few good skits but mostly he's being way too serious way too much of the time. And he needs to put a shirt on.

    He promised chaos and delivered on that, leaving them and us wondering what he was up to most of the time. He was a good early guess for the staboteur but he WREAKED more HAVOC just by being himself. He was early-to-bed & early-to-rise so I missed a lot of what he did, but he brought some Orthodox education, travel companion/fingerbang stories, and he made lots of threats to make good tv that didn't pan out until his final moments.

    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.
