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.

    Slow death

    Another of the fishies that is, but the same could be said for Big Brother 12.. the difference is the guys formed a first response committee to detangle the dying fish from the coral, but nobody's making any heroic measures to save the season

    Brendon's chum dips ended and he & Britney were de-cuffed after 15 or 16 hours, or "24 hours in BB time" as they're all referring to it.. Enzo tried to write MEOW MEOW on his penguin but Big Brother said "STOP THAT".. Hayden did a reverse flip cannonball into the pool and Big Brother said "STOP THAT".. it's been that kind of day

    Hayden barbecued chicken for the Haves, and later Brendon barbecued broccoli for the Nots, both without incident.. Matt made a birthday cake for Britney - her 23rd is tomorrow.. she broke out her pink dress like Rachel's peacock number (that Rachel "ruined" for her) which was good to see, along with her licking the beaters like a little kid.. they sang to her and the Haves ate cake.. she also held meetings with all and sundry to discuss her options for tomorrow

    Enzo played the Sad Penguin while the others socialized - he was very quiet and isolated, both of which are very unlike him, and later he turned Angry Penguin.. we did get another episode of Just The Tip, and it was a good one, without any of the awkwardness you might expect considering it was Britney and her three potential replacement nominees: Matt, Hayden and Ragan.. I have a hunch parts of this one might end up on CBS

    CBS will never be able to unravel this clusterfuck

    Daily Ratings - Angry Penguin edition

    Ratings are based on entertainment value. Everlasting thanks to BB5 Cowboy and Diane for nervousing and parannoying, respectively.

    Sunday's show didn't even try. They keep attempting to push the Lane & Britney fauxmance that doesn't exist, they threw sequencing out the window when they showed HOH Britney sleeping in the Have-nots room, and anyone still watching was bored to tears with the Old West gross foods drinking comp. Speaking of which, if they truly do plan all comps in advance like they claim, how did they happen to have that cute little saloon gal outfit for Britney at this late date? It wouldn't have fit anyone else. Lane used to give good Diary but they caught on to that and are now pushing him to be an absurd caricature of himself. It was surprising they didn't tease the next show with another Pandora appearance, but maybe they're finally ashamed of having revived Jessie yet again.

    Won: A night in Malibu & massage; shaved head; 24 15 hrs chum dips chained to Britney
    He was a great sport about the cuffing and chum, but when that ended (prematurely), he reverted to his usual awkward self. He did pop a funny today after Hayden's STOP THAT'd cannonball flip - see Lines of the Day. It was actually funny and said with great timing. It's nice to post a Brendon Line of the Day that's in the laughing with him category rather than the usual laughing at him.

    Won: $10; 24 15 hrs chained to Brendon; 1 hour with Jessie
    Her birthday isn't til tomorrow but they celebrated early and you get the feeling she's one of those people whose birthdays are spread out over a few days. She's got one hell of a decision to make and I'm not going to attempt to call it one way or another, or another, as it's nice to have a true wait-and-see this season. With any luck she'll put up Hayden, as that's the only way this week will be remotely watchable.

    Won: 42" 3D TV; 1 week penguin
    Lost: his clothes
    He's following BB11 Casey's banana script to the letter so far, to the point that everyone's referring to him as Penguin rather than Enzo. He went from pleasantly accepting his lot to being gloomy & isolated, to nervousing, to being angry - all in 24 hours. If the Costume Curse holds true, let's hope he starts singing happy little penguin tunes the rest of the week like Casey did.. although his threats of hitting someone would be fun too.

    Won: 24 18 hours solitary
    Yes, I know he said he won the trip and possibly the cash, but he could have been testing to see if that news spreads and/or gets contradicted or questioned, so I'm waiting for confirmation on Wednesday's show before I post it here on his winnings tally. I still can't get over how he comes alive for Just The Tip and tonight's 6th episode was no exception. I also can't get over how he's got a full anti-Bieber side swoop hairdo now, and it's not just because he refuses to wash it in cold water.

    Won: $1,000; phone call
    I'm so over his Diaries but I don't blame him for that - I blame them for pushing a good thing into overkill territory. I haven't heard any talk about him wanting or trying to give his phone call to The Penguin, and that's disappointing. He said the call is scheduled for Monday and I'm sure it'll be a nice experience for all, and possibly ups-worthy.. we'll see.

    Won: $1, Diamond Veto
    I think he's been driving this game from the start but I can't tell if he still is or if he's careening out of control with this latest turn of events. We'll find out soon enough but meanwhile, he's not bringing much to the feeds. He did however wear the penguin suit with a lot more pizazz than Enzo, including a little dance and flappy wings. Late night upgrade to ups for his ever so smooth Brigade revival to Enzo, and especially for doing it by subtly making Enzo think he was about to be cut from the club, sending him from short-lived confidence after his Britney meeting to parannoying all over again, and then he shmoozed Hayden after that.

    Won: $20,000, Veto ticket
    Like Lane, he's getting over-edited lately but that's not his fault, especially as he finally stopped crying today. He still didn't bring a lot today but his line about being 'down to his birth weight' on the show combined with his 'Who Wore It Better?' segment on Just The Tip earned him easy ups, especially when compared to his recent excessive miseryguts.

    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?'

    Enzo about the dying fish:
    This guy's about to be chum
    That's shun right there, somebody needs to un-shun him
    I feel even worse being in a penguin outfit watching a fish die

    Brendon: Did he say top that? 'Cause I could top that

    Lane to Hayden: I can control my side alliances - I don't know what you & Enzo have been doing

    Britney: Do you know for sure that Enzo & Hayden aren't in an alliance?
    Lane: No..

    Ragan: I am down to my birth weight

    Britney: We're all sitting here talking, and look at the penguin

    Matt: You gotta get out of the penguin funk
