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.

What extra foods should Have-nots get?
Broccoli & bean dip

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.

Britney opened Pandora's Box and got an hour of BB10/11 Jessie insulting her while the others had a luau

Ragan won $20k for performing 3 tasks a week for 2 weeks undetected. His identity will be revealed to them at the finale.

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.

    Oh, it was THAT veto comp (Saturday)

    Superlong trivia finally ended to reveal Enzo in a penguin suit with all his clothes permanently gone, and Brendon with a shaved head.. it was the comp where they bid points, blindly, for good and bad things

    Along with the shaved head, Brendon came away with having to dunk once an hour x 24 in "chum" (or in this case, foamy chartreuse liquid bubbling with dry ice) while handcuffed to Britney, three weeks Have-not, and the veto.. Lane gets a phone call, and someone got $5,000 and a Hawaii trip, possibly Hayden

    Pandora's Box also returned for more bubbles/trivia.. Britney spent an hour with BB10/11 Jessie: he flexed and insulted her, and she called him a douche.. the others had a luau

    Britney was extremely upset after the comp, ranting to Lane that she's been used to do everyone else's dirty work.. Matt said his buzzer didn't work properly, and Ragan seems to have caught on to the plan to put up Matt if Brendon happened to win the veto - he spent the evening morose and teary again

    It's back (Friday)

    They had their food comp and came back in cowboy costumes, so I'm guessing they'll have a reprise of the banjo music from the rope comp on Sunday's show.. it sounds like they had to drink liquified gross foods - that's always a crowd-pleaser (not).. Brendon, Enzo & Hayden are the new Have-nots and they got broccoli & bean dip for their voted slop supplements

    But the real news of the day is the return of the Metal Monster, the (almost) undefeated true champion of our summer slugfest: they got the grill

    Its last few seasons have shown its age and it hasn't had any spectacular triumphs lately like it did in years past, but it looks like it got all polished up and I think I heard a little clank as it flexed its burners.. I have a feeling it wants a piece of Brendon

    Britney held her meetings, including another beg session from Brendon to put up Matt, which she then reported to Enzo, Hayden & Lane, and said maybe she'd go along with that and put up Matt as a pawn.. they agreed that would be a good plan (OBVI they would), but she ended up nominating Brendon and Enzo

    There wasn't much fallout from that, other than Brendon sniffling to himself a bit in the Have-not room behind his sleep visor, and muttering to Rachel.. Britney took a bubble bath and studied aloud, and talked to us about her family, her friends, Nick, and life in there

    Lane grilled some steaks, uneventfully.. they said the barbecue hadn't been cleaned - I don't know if that would be from last summer, or if they use it on the lot in the off-season for something.. the guys found a spider and turned into 8-year-olds for a bit, and all of them figured out simultaneously & separately that next week is a double eviction

    Everyone but Ragan will compete for veto tomorrow, but they never locked them in for construction.. maybe it'll be Saturday night - we haven't had a night-time veto yet.. Lane mentioned several times how Diary keeps leading him into bashing Britney's boyfriend Nick, and that he doesn't like it.. it seems to me that CBS is so desperate for a showmance they'll create one where none exists.. the sad thing is some viewers are buying it, but some viewers buy whatever they're fed.. Brendon & Enzo became convinced sometime after midnight that Matt was the stabo, and they got all excited about it

    CBS will never be able to unravel this clusterfuck

    Daily Ratings - Bathe with a Chum edition

    Ratings are based on random

    For all the horrors they appear to be dishing out, last week's frozen eggplant parmesan dinners for sloppers were pretty kooshy. I figure the Stouffer's broccoli au gratin should be showing up anytime now, and I'm not expecting Brendon's dunkings and Brendon & Britney's togetherness will last a full 24 hours anymore than past 24 hour punishments have. As for chum, do they know what it means? It's stinky cut-up fish parts, and it's not fluorescent green. And they still aren't supplying ear plugs, after all these seasons of dunked ear infections. Between the gross foods comp on Sunday's show and green slime plus Jessie on Wednesday, they must not be worried about losing viewers at this point.

    Won: A night in Malibu & massage; shaved head; 24 hrs chum dips & chained to Britney
    It'll be interesting to see how this comp worked to see how he ended up with everything. He was a good sport about it all (so far) and is being especially cordial with Britney (so far), who he spent the last two weeks bashing nonstop. That may not last through their 24 hours together, but 24 hours never lasts 24 hours on this show anyway. It's interesting to listen to the two of them comparing game & hamster notes, and all that could lead to something nobody saw coming.

    Won: $10; 24 hrs chained to Brendon; 1 hour with Jessie
    See Brendon, minus winning everything, and plus the fact that she cried at Lane after the comp about being used by the guys to do their dirty work. I'm not sure but I think it was him who said in pre-season interviews that he could handle anything in there except females crying at him. He's had it too easy in there, so big ups to Britney for that one.

    Won: 42" 3D TV; 1 week penguin
    Lost: his clothes
    People are getting tired of him but I still like his one-liners and I think he makes a fine penguin. But he needs to WEAR THE BEAK, like Casey had to wear the banana top and the BB8 bunnies had to wear the ears.

    Won: 24 18 hours solitary
    Did he take the $5k and the Hawaii trip? We'll find out for sure on Wednesday's show. He's still not gone back to the full-out combed-forward Bieber hair.. point to Zingbot.

    Won: $1,000; phone call
    See Britney. He talked her down, but with his own agenda. He really should give his phone call to Enzo, his supposed good buddy and fellow Brigadier, the one with the wife and baby girl at home. Having the penguin blubbering in Diary as he listens to his little girl coo & babble at him would be really good tv, and would help counter the gross-outs on next week's shows.

    Won: $1, Diamond Veto
    He's getting too gloomy.. maybe it's the proximity to Ragan.

    Won: $20,000, Veto ticket
    He really needs to QUIT CRYING! Okay, what if Matt does leave on Thursday and he's all on his own? He could lay down and die, or he could make more friends, or he could win HOH and/or veto. But the bottom line is it's only Saturday and he's safe now and for at least five days - maybe 12! He didn't want to be known as the crying gay guy on Big Brother, but that's what he's become. He needs to snap out of it and step it up, or I may have to put him on ignore.

    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?'
