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.

Two hour finale is September 15

Lane opened Pandora's Box which gave him $91.17 and gave them all no cups or utensils, one night of sock puppets, and dancing

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.

    BBQ 2010 Smackdown III: BOOM! (Sunday)

    It was another day with a lot of nothing, until it came time to grill some hot dogs.. once again, the metal monster refused to light as it toyed with Lane and oozed propane fumes freely

    Hayden came along to supervise.. Britney wisely cowered on the opposite side of the yard, waiting for armageddon.. click click click click click went the starter - nothing.. click click click click again - nothing.. so it went for what seemed like an eternity, the grill releasing a cloud of propane onto Lane at one point

    Finally, when they'd all but given up.. BOOM! the cloud of gas was lit, and the heat released from the fires of hell blasted Lane's crotch area.. there were no flames so no third degree burns, and they all enjoyed their hot dogs.. much later there was a short encore event with the same setup, and the clanking menace refused to light at all

    Final score: BBQ 1, Lane 0
    Revised final score after the September 5 show: BBQ 1, Lane 0, CBS 0

    Arts, crafts and disco

    After his losing match with the grill, Lane put Britney in a choke hold for a few minutes, maybe to prove he could still dominate something - she didn't mind

    Enzo spent most of the day making something out of tinfoil, pasta, Q-tips and nail polish.. Ragan spent most of the day moping & sleeping again

    Sock puppets ended early, and they got their third Pandora punishment - apparently the crappy weights set replacement is just that, and they're all complaining about it and its lack of safety.. no, Pandora had cuter things in mind: they have to dance for a few seconds every hour or two.. even Ragan joined in, and enjoyed it before going horizontal again

    Sorry I'm tripling up the page again and that I don't have more, but there isn't much more

    Ragan shuns himself (Saturday)

    Enzo won the veto in what sounds like a complex comp of some sort - apparently there was a tussle between him & Enzo at some point but since we have to rely on their say-so and CBS edits, we'll never know what really happened

    Like many hamsters before him, Ragan seems to have forgotten the glee with which he evicted those who went before him, and it's all become life & death (mostly death) - he's turned into a total miseryguts again.. since Matt left, he isolated himself to study and now he's isolated himself to mope & cry

    Enzo was thrilled with his win (as he has every right to be), and the three surviving Brigadiers congratulated themselves for having gotten one step closer to the end (as they have every right to).. Britney's still there, hanging with the guys

    Punishment #2 (maybe?) arrived in the form of downgraded weights equipment, followed by #3 (or #2) in the form of sock puppets they're forced to use when speaking, else they go Have-not.. more later, maybe

    Yet another Pandora (Friday)

    This time Lane got some cash ($91.17 I think) and three punishments, the first of which is their cups, glasses & eating utensils were removed for a week

    I know, it's not much to report, but this is when the season slows down, in between quick rounds of speeding up for comps that count for more than strategy at this point.. it's also when some of the more fun & goony stuff comes along sometimes, if we're lucky

    Lane nominated Enzo & Ragan, not unexpectedly.. the plan is Enzo will come off if any of the remaining Brigadiers win the veto.. Lane had trouble with the script before the feeds went to trivia, and afterward said they'd probably need to edit his speech.. Enzo shunned the penguin suit at 9pm with nice speeches from all.. Ragan participated in that, but otherwise isolated himself to study aloud all day & evening, and Britney hung out with the guys

    Daily Ratings - Sifl & Olly edition

    Ratings are Saturday's, based on entertainment value

    The sock puppets were a cute idea, especially at first when they all 'talked' them. Apparently that's the requirement, but by midnight or so, they were all just hanging off their hands like oddly decorated gloves. BB made them which is too bad as it would have been great if the hamsters had made their own: arts & crafts night is one of the fun things from the past that they haven't recycled. But that's just as well - if they recycled it now, they'd probably keep it behind bubbles.

    Won: $10; 24 15 hrs chained to Brendon; 1 hour with Jessie
    After she talked for two hours Friday night without taking a breath, I've had to put her on semi-ignore for a little while. Her puppet's cute, and she 'talked' it well while that lasted.

    Won: 42" 3D TV; 1 week penguin
    Lost: his clothes
    For weeks people have been trashing him for not winning anything (nevermind that Dr Will never won anything), but now that he has won, people are trashing him for being happy about it. Apparently it was some version of the OTEV comp which is a hard one, so big ups and more power to him.

    Won: $5,000; Hawaii trip;
    24 18 hours solitary
    Like his Diaries and Just The Tip, he comes alive when he's got a role or character to play, and his sock puppet was no different. He flipped its hair from the start and kept 'talking' it long after the others had given up.

    Won: $1,091.17; phone call
    His sock puppet was the least animated of them all, even at the beginning. But that's kind of his role in there too, when he's not turning Britney upside down.

    Won: $20,000; Veto ticket
    He's the most miserable misery we've seen in a long time and it's even more highlighted by the fact he keeps saying he does not want to be that guy. Well he is that guy, and he's been that guy for far too long now. Maybe he forgot he's getting $20k the rest of them aren't for recording videos in Diary.

    Won: A night in Malibu & massage; shaved head;
    24 15 hrs chum dips chained to Britney
    His showmance with Rachel was the most bizarre we've ever seen since they seemed totally mismatched with zero chemistry, and oddly inexperienced. He was equal parts Ken doll & a boyfriend from 'Pleasantville' and his sensitive side was overwhelmingly sappy. He was a bit better as a solo act but still peculiar as he spewed random out-of-context factoids and 'I have a friend..' stories but he was a good sport about shaving his head & being chained to Britney for green slime dips.

    Won: $1; Diamond Veto
    He pawned himself early but survived that, only to be ousted by the alliance he formed and mentored. His wife's fake illness spread beyond the normally insulated BB world but he brought awareness to melorheostosis (and few care that Dr Will faked cancer ten seasons before). Also like Dr Will, he'll be remembered for duckies strategy sessions, as well as his sparkly falling apart on CBS, footie skull jammies, missing toenails, mysteriously not outing the Brigade, and keeping a hand down his pants.

    Won: Nothing
    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.

    Won: Nothing
    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.

    Won: Nothing
    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?'
