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.

Two hour finale is September 15

Brendon opened Pandora's Box which gave him a night out and let Rachel back for 24 hours.

Matt opened Pandora's Box which held the return of the saboteur (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 at the finale.

Matt holds diamond veto 'which allows him to save himself or anyone else for the next two weeks, and also solely pick who will go up as the replacement nominee.' He can't say he has it until/unless he uses it, and he can't put up Brendon.

I use Stabo/Staboteur/Stabotage because of the typo in an early official CBS BB tweet

Annie & Monet were sequestered until Andrew was evicted. Nobody knows why.

The first saboteur was Annie. She'd have won $50k if she lasted 5 weeks undetected.

Ragan's tattoo says 'Quelquefois un rêve est ce qui vous fait un esclave' ('Sometimes a dream is what makes you a slave')

Have-Nots have their own room again, cold showers again, slop again, 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.

    Out comes the sparkly

    An hour or so before they took their places on the sofas, Enzo reflected to Lane in front of the photo wall about the impending finish of the original Brigade.. earlier he told Britney that he'd warned Matt he was going to vote to evict him instead of Lane, and told her that he felt bad, that "Matty's a good kid", and that he felt "like Ronnie a little bit"

    Julie intro'd the show to us as the "biggest night of blindsides the game has ever seen" and that it was, judging from their faces when Matt pulled out his sparkly.. he took himself down OBVI and put up Kathy, who was evicted unanimously.. Britney won the HOH comp based on questions about their Big Brother Says activities yesterday

    Sparkly aftermath

    We didn't have violence, camping out on the washer/dryer, or mic packs going swimming - we barely had a reaction at all.. honestly I don't think it even sank in for Brendon exactly what had just happened, at least until he was called to Diary

    When he finally did go in, Britney & Matt had a short parade to celebrate his imminent demise and they all jumped themselves ahead to Final Six.. meanwhile, Lane & Hayden built an impressive castle out of candy, and everyone waited for the HOH room to officially begin the new week

    Britney teared up when she read her letter from mom and she liked her goodies, although she was confused by the Play-doh.. she hated the early pageant pic and was confused why it was sent, as well as the "drunken sweaty" one of her and boyfriend Nick

    Matt & Ragan had a moment of confessions in the hammock: Matt's age lie and Ragan's PhD/professor omission.. neither the Brigade nor Stacy's leg were mentioned.. later Brendon attempted a getting-to-know-you chat with Matt about his former band - Day 48 is a bit late for that

    Just The Tip returned with episode 5 in its first late late night edition, and it was a great way to top off the night

    CBS will never be able to unravel this clusterfuck

    Daily Ratings - Floaters, Grab Your Swimmy Tube special edition

    VTE = Voted to evict
    Ratings are based on entertainment value. In a Hamsterwatch first, today's daily theme pics carry down into the empty wheel zone.

    I thought Ragan's love note for Enzo was his sixth & final stabo task but many told me I was wrong and yesterday's Simon Says shenanigans were stabotage.. I should have just stuck to my count. Big ups to them for pulling off a nice coup and shocking all of them since they were expecting next week's double eviction tonight, and to call the whole stabo fiasco a 'reign of terror' was pure comedy. The fact that Matt's 'diamond' veto literally fell apart in his hands was icing on the cake. Julie outsparkled Matt's sparkly in a big way but at least hers are genuine.

    Oh and by the way, it's time they BRING OUT THE GRILL. I think it wants a piece of Brendon.

    Won: A night in Malibu & massage
    No vote (HOH)
    He should have blown up but I think he needed diagrams from Diary to realize what hit him, and by then it was too late and he just sat there stewing. Wait til he figures out how lame his Pandora was compared to Matt's. His social skills are equivalent to BB8 Eric's, and that isn't saying much, so this will be an interesting week. I'm expecting him to either keep trying to horn into groups he wasn't interested in belonging to for 48 days, or get BB plague and isolate himself even further. As we head into this week (or Flashback to the last couple weeks), keep in mind how he used to proudly proclaim that he doesn't cuss.

    Won: $10
    VTE Kathy
    Big ups for being the last woman standing, even though it meant she had nobody to dish with about her new clothes and makeup. She was funny about the dark hair/no eyebrows pageant pic from her youth, but Matt was funnier when he swore he'll use it for his Facebook profile. Brendon is obviously her target this week but will she put him up in the first round or will she attempt the first true backdoor of the season? Either way may prove tricky: he's won two vetos already.. but she's won three.

    Won: 42" 3D TV
    VTE Kathy
    He'd been getting so manic the last week or two, and it's only going to get worse now. Plus he's going to have some good old-fashioned Catholic guilt over coming this close to turning against one of the boys, and now he'll have to try to repair that bridge. His campaign plan for jury votes to warn evictees they're going to go backfired today when he warned Matt prematurely.. oops.

    Won: 24 18 hours solitary
    VTE Kathy
    He's probably just as worried as Matt now and with every reason, but he's a lot quieter than Enzo so he may luck out. I was worried we might never have another episode of Just The Tip since he's an integral part of it and he's on thin ice now, but they came through before the noms & veto potentially take him off the production team. He came close to returning to his silly Bieber hair tonight but if you look closely, you'll see it's not completely combed forward like he used to do it: he had a little swoop to the left.

    Won: $1,000
    No vote (nominee)
    Talk about a forgotten nominee, he may be the most forgotten ever after tonight. Yesterday he was theoretically in jeopardy (even though he would have stayed) but the fact that he just came off the block combined with his friendship with Britney should leave him the safest of the three remaining Brigadiers. The editors are really pushing to make him & Britney look like showmance #3 - maybe they've missed the sparkly she's got on her finger. Like Julie's, it's the real deal.

    Won: $1, Diamond Veto
    He didn't want to do it, but he did it and it made for good tv all around. Not getting rid of Jessie good, but good just the same. He joined Just The Tip with Britney's awful pageant pic in his lap, which was a perfect topper to his perfect day. Actually he won everlasting ups with me for the way he kept showing the television audience that his 'diamond' veto was really a piece of junk jewelry.. but it did its job just the same.

    Won: $20,000, Veto ticket
    VTE Kathy
    He seemed happier than Matt that his buddy was spared and that's okay, the two of them seem like lifelong friends - forward, not backward. (THERE ARE NO LIFELONG FRIENDS in there, for those who missed the bulletins.) He had such a great night, True Confessions with Matt was sweet, and he was in fine form for Just The Tip, but I need a little more distance from crying, whining Ragan before I give him ups.

    She spoiled a lot of early fights by being the peacemaker we didn't need. An early illness laid her low but once she recovered, she didn't bring much to the feeds other than sucking up to whoever was in power. She was the only regular smoker this season, which was an odd juxtaposition with her cancer survival and announced upcoming relapse. She took over fish feeding as well as Hayden's sock monkey, her mascara'd eyelashes had storylines of their own, and she's the first bleached blonde hamster who started off with three weeks' worth of dark roots.

    Won: $5,000, 24 20 hour revival
    The buxom bombshell role and star of the 1st half thanks to her total lack of self-awareness and her adolescent slurpmance with Brendon. She talked up her game but both her HOHs were wasted on non-threats for purely personal reasons. She was chaos, volatility and mood swings deluxe but rarely boring. She'll be remembered for indecipherable blogs, farewells to 4 of 4 who came between her & her man, tacky outfits & tack-on hair, her dysfunctional showmance, and 'I AM VEGAS!'

    Won: $100, 1 week wig & catsuit
    She was barely there the first couple weeks but she came alive and participated in some juicy spats and was the subject of Andrew's scorching exit speech. She was half a showmance with Hayden and wore a silly wig & catsuit for a week, yet for all this, she still was barely there. She spent most of her time horizontal with Kathy or Hayden, and would only talk with others one-on-one.

    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.

    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?'
