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 someone speculates about double eviction
Matt is Head of Household
Brendon & Rachel are nominated
Britney holds veto
Matt holds diamond veto
Kathy is Have-not
Ragan is Staboteur 2.0
Random mood swings
Veto meeting Monday
Next CBS show is Wednesday 8pm: Stabotage, veto comp, Jeff & Jordan, veto meeting, assorted dramas
Sunday's show placed second with 7.5 million viewers, 4.5 rating and 8 share, behind Football Hall of Fame game on NBC with 11.4/6.8/12, and ahead of 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition' rerun on ABC with 5.1/3.1/5, and 'The Simpsons' and 'The Cleveland Show' reruns on FOX with 4.0/2.1/4 and 3.8/2.0/4 respectively. Football also won the 18-49 demographic.
Who do you want to be the new staboteur to WREAK HAVOC?
They're soliciting stabotage ideas again but don't bother submitting any as they'll ignore them and do dumb stuff they wanted to do in the first place
Two hour finale is September 15
Matt opened Pandora's Box which held the return of the staboteur (in the form of Ragan) to WREAK HAVOC, and gave him diamond veto for 2 weeks.
Ragan will win $20k if he performs 3 tasks a week for 2 weeks undetected. His identity will be revealed to them on the finale.
Matt holds diamond veto for 2 weeks. He can override the regular veto if used this week or next, and name a replacement nominee.
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 5 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.

Rise and shine
Their day began with Rachel & Brendon bitching in the hammock over coffee, which was good enough comedy in itself, but then it got better
Rachel & Kathy were sitting in total silence at the dining table, the tension thick enough to cut with a plastic knife.. Matt came out of Diary and chatted a bit, then more silence.. Kathy finally left, Matt invited Rachel to open up, and the "everyone hates me" floodgates poured open.. Matt gave her a great talking-to about how it wasn't personal and the many game reasons she & Brendon were nominated.. he also pointed out how great she'd been the first week when she was nominated AND a Have-not
She seemed to listen but then she went off and sobbed alone, until Brendon came in glistening with sweat.. she told him Matt was a douchebag and that he'd said it was her fault everyone's making it personal now, making Matt out to be a total meanie, which is exactly how Brendon heard it
Later on, after all the many times Rachel said she wanted Kathy to apologize to her, Rachel actually apologized to Kathy.. she said she really was glad she'd won their bowling round, and how she really did understand the whole Hayden/Kristen, Kristen/Kathy, Hayden/Kathy, Britney/Monet situations, but that it was different for her & Brendon.. later Kathy made a point of telling Britney that she had not apologized to Rachel
WREAK HAVOC fail 2.0
They got another stabo video - this one was hidden from us like the early Annie ones.. apparently Rachel & Brendon were actually named in it? Or at least clearly identified without names, which is just wrong in my opinion, and worse than duct tape & crickets, but none of them got too excited about it one way or another
All of them napped at the same time for an hour or so except Matt, who was in Diary, so it was a very dull afternoon.. in another rerun, Enzo, Lane & Hayden made a whirlpool like BB10 Dan & Memphis Bob and BB9 Adam, Ryan & Matt did before them
Evening didn't bring much other than a rerun of Rachel trying to buy Britney's veto for $5,000, and the Pandora's Box & staboteur revelations on the show.. see the FAQ on left sidebar for how Matt's sparkly stickers cubic zirconium diamond veto works
The best group activity of the season came along when Britney & Ragan were trashing Rachel.. Hayden joined and they turned it into a talk show with advice for potential future BB hamsters
They were all quick & funny with things like Rachel's constant over-exposure and Brendon's toe, with puns galore (sabotoe, intoelerable), and Hayden of all people coming up with the suggestion WWJD (What would Julie do?) when deciding if something was inappropriate or not.. Matt joined for a few as a special guest, and acknowledged what was posted on that Average Joe message board that he had indeed really had his toenails removed - gah! (he is ShootingBlanks on that board)
It was a great time that rivaled the BB10 first week puppet show, and well worth the Flashback - it starts around 11pm.. earlier Hayden reported that Brendon was getting "riled up" over Rachel talking about her ex but that was withheld from us, and that's okay considering the great fun they gave us in the backyard
Rachel got sippy later and went around hardcore bikini-campaigning to everyone, one by one, as if it was Wednesday night and not just the irrelevant veto meeting coming up.. I thought she'd finally lost her mind but later she whispered to Brendon before sex that it was all an act, similar to her act for Rally Crashers
before CBS gets hold of it and turns it into something else for the air show
