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.

All feeds stay on one 'scene' when someone's in Diary.

    BBQ 2010 Smackdown II: The Spatterer

    Just one day after its triumphant comeback, the metal monster scored again this afternoon - and not just once, but twice! It was the first double-point victory ever in a stellar career that passed legendary some seasons back

    This time it was Lane who took on the brushed metal beast.. he was grilling burgers for them, with various others hovering around but none getting too close, until Britney reached in to put some cheese on hers.. the lid clunked down, and when Lane lifted it again to check cheese meltage, BLAM! The grill spat out a wisp of hot grease onto Britney, scoring a direct hit

    She said she wasn't hurt and Lane teased her a bit.. obviously that angered the metal menace (along with Lane occasionally being referred to as The Beast), and it punished the wannabeast by biting Lane's hand as he cleaned it off later

    Final score: BBQ 2, Britney 0, Lane 0

    The Penguin's peanuts

    The big scandal of the day arose out of last night's backyard fun, when Penguin picked up and ate two peanuts that were being thrown around

    The BB-verse is up in arms (some of it anyway), not only because it was a blatant double-sneak caught on tape animated gif, but because Enzo had a definite Official Warning a couple weeks back when he ate some pizza as a Have-not.. the phantom 'penalty nom' is so much suburban legend, but there is a precedent for a slopper eating while on the block, and that is the assignment of a penalty vote - refer to BB8 Jen Johnson.. if BB does the right thing here and attempts consistency for a change, that would eliminate the need for Britney to break a possible tie vote on Thursday

    Nevermind that a tie vote seems highly unlikely at this point: Matt's working his superdiabolical butt off by continuing to re-befriend Ragan, and then reporting whatever Ragan says back to his (former) teamies.. you may ask what is he doing all this for? Why not just out the Brigade? Because, dear Hamsterwatchers, timing is crucial for such a delicate procedure, and he knows it.. whether he's going about saving himself effectively or not remains to be seen, but I have every faith he will out Da Boyz sometime between now and around 5:20pm on Thursday when the first evictee of the night hits Julie's boudoir

    The Matt/Ragan reconciliation continued and most all of their bridges that Matt burned yesterday seem to be mended.. they started studying and counting together again, and general chatting, and Ragan said he'd vote to keep Matt if he needed it.. Matt said he's working on something

    Activities, kind of

    Evening brought booze and badminton, but they broke the badminton after a few games and went back to pool.. the guys made some dice with Play-doh and nail polish (I think), and set them out to dry

    Studying and game chat rages on unchecked in every corner, but they perked up a bit again after Brendon went to bed.. there wasn't anything especially noteworthy to call attention to, but it was another night of light pleasant chat for the most part, and that's not a bad thing.. Matt continued working

    CBS will never be able to unravel this clusterfuck

    Daily Ratings - Found a Peanut edition

    Ratings are based on entertainment value

    I'm glad they listened to me and gave them badminton, but they need to know their hamsters a little better: we've got six guys in there and four of them are big jock types who break stuff.. they need tougher stuff than the bargain bin at the sporting goods store. Along those lines, word on the street is Hayden's on some sort of 'final warning' for having broken the vase last night after breaking pool cues last week. Not that 'final warning' means anything around there. And if they aren't going to do anything about Penguin's peanuts after he already had a pizza warning, why don't they all just eat whatever they want? Finally, why did last week's Have-nots get frozen eggplant parm dinners but this week's haven't gotten something comparable like broccoli au gratin? Apparently they missed the memo: it doesn't matter if it's right or wrong, as long as it's consistent.

    As for the fishies, here's the story. When they started dying early on, Kathy realized they were starving and doubled their food rations. She ran out at one point, probably because they had pre-dated packets for the entire season like past years, and Kathy raised hell. Big Brother didn't like her feeding them double rations, but they stopped dying and started thriving when she did. Now that she's gone, the guys are following directions, and watching which fishies don't get anything to eat at feeding time. And they're dying again. PETA and SPCA are on the case.

    Won: A night in Malibu & massage; shaved head; 24 15 hrs chum dips chained to Britney
    He's such a pariah and/or energy sapper, the other six only come alive when he's in Diary or in bed. These last weeks would be so much more fun if he was gone, but consider this: he's counting on winning the first HOH comp Thursday and is already griping about how he won't get a goodie basket or have his three week Have-not sentence knocked down a week. I don't think he'll get that HOH but if he somehow survives the second eviction Thursday, the second HOH comp is often one that combines endurance with skill. Have you ever watched him on the elliptical machine? He's a monster on it! Only Hayden could beat him in a skating-in-oil type comp, and even that's unlikely.

    Won: $10; 24 15 hrs chained to Brendon; 1 hour with Jessie
    Condolences to her for being the first casualty of two today during grilling time but she joins a long line of hamsters who have succumbed to the clanking beast before her. Word to the wise: wear more than a bikini if you're going to get that close to it. I'm really looking forward to her blog and hoping she lets us know how much she really knows about what's going on in there, and what she thinks about it all. Please Britney, don't have it be all shout-outs and rehashing stuff we already know. Update: after reading her tweets, my hopes aren't as high for her blog.

    Won: 42" 3D TV; 1 week penguin
    Lost: his clothes
    Those peanuts disappeared so fast, I doubt he even tasted them, but they sure have stirred up a firestorm of controversy out here. It would be so much easier if they just ran the food comps for the colorful CBS segments and then forgot about the whole slop/Have-not thing since it's become such a joke. It doesn't seem like he got a penalty vote or even had his fins slapped, as he'd surely share that. But he did get mopey and horizontal tonight, hitting one Sad Penguin pose after another, possibly thinking about 'wifey' and their anniversary tomorrow, and his baby girl. Whatever the cause, I called this one.. any minute now he'll be singing little Sad Penguin calypso songs, like Casey's Sad Banana.

    Won: 24 18 hours solitary
    There's not much to go on in there lately, but him & Ragan spontaneously doing Brendon's shtick was a high point of the day for those of us who wait around for hours hoping for a bit of hamster comedy. He's also covering lots of bases game-wise, but that's not nearly as entertaining. He had a close call when he heard it was 11:45pm: he said 'Showtime's still on!' and I think he almost said something about how there's still time to do Just The Tip, before he realized Brendon was sitting there.. oops.

    Won: $1,000; phone call
    He co-starred in the first-ever BBQ Smackdown double-header, and he lost. Other than that and his laying under a chair during the HOH storytime-that-never-happened, I didn't see much of him today. His long afternoon shower looked like it might be another self-service job, but he didn't fiddle with his ears so he was probably just getting clean.

    Won: $1, Diamond Veto
    I'm torn here. He's not the most entertaining hamster on the feeds by any means and that's my criteria for wanting to keep them, but he's dancing so fast, so smooth, and so subtly, that I hope he somehow beats the odds and manages to beat his certain eviction somehow, and without a sparkly. It still seems impossible, but it could happen and I hope it does. He lost a lot of ground yesterday but he seems to be back where he was with Ragan now, and he's still reporting in to the former Brigade as if he's still true blue. If nothing else, at least he's spreading some guilt around.

    Won: $20,000, Veto ticket
    I'm glad we're back to Old Ragan because New Ragan was a drip. He still talks too much and too much of it's studying and game talk, but he's back to funny stories, insightful comments, and random conversations with a little more substance than most hamsters can muster up. And he did a little robot dance before the grill attacked - but I don't think there was a connection.

    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, wore a silly wig & catsuit for a week, and ate a spider, 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?'
