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.
BB12 DRINKING GAME
Take a swig whenever Brendon complains about something
Matt is Head of Household
Brendon & Rachel are nominated
Kathy is Have-not
Ragan is Staboteur 2.0
Next CBS show is Sunday 8pm: Endurance comp, Pandora's Box & stabotage, nominations, assorted dramas
Veto comp Saturday
BB11 Jordan Lloyd & Jeff Schroeder visiting the veto comp for a cross-promo opp for Jeff's CBS webshow
Pandora's Box has returned but nothing's known about it yet other than it released Stabo 2.0 HAVOC - see below
Thursday's eviction show won the hour with 7 million viewers, 4.2 rating and 8 share, ahead of 'Wipeout' rerun on ABC with 6.5/3.8/7, 'Glee' rerun on FOX with 3.8/2.5/5, and 'Community' and '30 Rock' reruns on NBC with 2.8/1.9/4 and 2.4/1.7/3 respectively. 'Big Brother 12' also won the 18-49 demographic.
Who do you want to be the new staboteur to WREAK HAVOC?
Two hour finale is September 15
The first 'evil' from Pandora's Box was the return of the staboteur, in the form of Ragan, to WREAK HAVOC.
Ragan will win $20k if he lasts two weeks undetected. He addressed the hamsters August 6 (for August 8 show), and his identity will be revealed to them on the finale.
I use Stabo/Staboteur/Stabotage because of the typo in an early official CBS BB tweet
Annie & Monet have been sprung from sequester so we won't have Revive-a-Hamster after all.
The first 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.
All feeds stay on one 'scene' when someone's in Diary.

Say what you want about Brendon & Rachel - and you do - they are definitely the most mismatched couple in Big Brother history, and possibly all history.. this was their mismatched pose for a bit this morning as he ranted (again) about the unfairness of the endurance comp and she ranted (again) about the unfairness of being Rachel
Matt was locked out of his HOH room and all of them remained locked in from the backyard for hours so they could set up Pandora's Box to set up the stupid stabotwist again.. it gave us a sense of giddy anticipation but it made them lifeless, as usual.. The Powers That Be are soliciting stabo ideas again, so Ragan must have accepted the job - I'd like to know what they did with the many really good ideas submitted the first time, and why they opted for such ridiculous non-pranks for Annie to pull.. I'm not expecting much from round 2
Apparently Diary told Matt he wasn't allowed to renege on a money deal, should Rachel bribe him with her $5k - he was hoping to take the money and put her up anyway, so now that fun is spoiled.. he spent the night and morning avoiding her, as any sane person would.. when she finally did corner him (after a visit to Diary), it turned into a fight between her & Ragan because she called Matt & Ragan a pair - Flashback to 1.25pm any feed to see it
Matt was offered Pandora's Box - he told them he opened it but nothing happened other than he got a dollar (or maybe his original first comp dollar back again), at least not yet.. it was behind bubbles naturally, so for us who pay to "see everything, live and uncensored", it was a big fat nothing
Rachel on the block, Stabo on the screen
After a long afternoon and many bubbles, Matt nominated Rachel & Brendon.. apparently he kept it businesslike and "not personal" but the feeds came back to Rachel WHACK WHACK WHACKing at an onion, with a knife
She finally finished WHACKing and she & Brendon took their food into the spa/gym/cabana room where they ate an angry dinner alone, bitching about Matt, everyone and everything else.. it was quite fun but then BB came along with a distraction in the form of Stabo 2.0
They all ran for the living room monitor when they heard some static over the loudspeakers, and there was (Ragan) on the flat-screen telling them he was back, and that he was in the house (in other words, not Annie).. we got to see it on the feeds which was not the case with the first twist fail
They all sat around discussing it for far longer than they ever did for the early stabo videos, and they wondered like we do about the logistics & sequencing of (Ragan) accepting the job and Matt unleashing it.. they finally all returned to their corners to bitch and moan some more
Midnight brought a big bowling lane in the backyard, with three pins and small wooden bocce-type balls.. Rachel said she's lousy at bowling and Brendon said he'd give her tips later, but he didn't do that great in practice.. when Rachel was called to Diary, they all commented about how immature and pissy she's being, and she followed up by wracking sobs alone and to Brendon that she can't do it
An interesting tidbit from @varien2009 who reports Spike TV ran a Hooters bikini pageant where the host gave Matt a shoutout for his wife's fake disease.. it was recorded July 10, two days after BB12 began - did that come up on the premiere? Reruns this weekend - check your local listings
Big ups to BB9 Natalie Cunial for a nice visit to Hamsterwatch Chat today! She's following BB12 and answered questions about how it all works.. come back anytime, Natty!
before CBS gets hold of it and turns it into something else for the air show
