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.

    FINALLY a new week

    I'm not going to say it's been the most boring week of the most boring season ever as I don't feel the need to state the obvious, but let's just say a lot of feedsters have wandered off to get back to other things a lot sooner than usual

    HOH lockdown hasn't changed much, except the body count is a lot lower.. the most interesting thing about Lane's HOH week was that he was never in his own bed except when he was in there alone

    Ragan was evicted as planned, and Hayden won the Christmas tree decorating HOH comp - which we did not see

    It was another long, long wait til the last HOH room reveal and Hayden's letter.. it was a short letter and the usual assortment of junk food - most of them were horizontal and comatose up there within a few minutes.. nominations don't really mean much this time: it's all about the veto.. the hamster who ends up not nominated will decide who goes to jury next Wednesday

    Hardly anyone's watching the feeds anymore which isn't very inspiring for me to keep going, and the majority of what I hear is more about how incredibly boring they are than how much this one or that one is hated, and that's different.. the tiny table should show up tomorrow, if BB remembers - it's a huge milestone as is the middle-sized table, but I don't think they ever put that on the CBS show this season

    Daily Ratings - Final Four edition

    VTE = Voted to evict
    Ratings are based on entertainment value

    Two jury house segments? That had to be a first, but they would have to do a piece on Matt's confession after it hit 'The View' and other mainstream media, complete with very badly over-acted reactions from Kathy & Rachel. We know why they showed Ragan's Diary-forced 'save me' talks but why did Julie talk about the Brigade to him? She didn't say the name but she may as well have: their alliance has still not come out into the open but now Ragan's going off to jury with that info pretty much confirmed. Nevermind that Matt may spill there (although he didn't when he should have) - that bit of script Julie read was as detrimental to the 'integrity of the game' as when she asked them all who was the most underrated player.

    After the show we had yet another comp they blocked from their paying customers - we used to always see the HOH comps that ran past the end of the show, and it didn't hurt a thing. I'm not sure why they tell them they've got 15 million viewers when they've got about half that for every show - it just encourages their misconception that they're big stars on a huge hit, and it makes them try even less to be entertaining. Whatever happened to Lane's phone call?

    Won: $10; 24 15 hrs chained to Brendon; 1 hour with Jessie
    VTE Ragan
    Like the rest of them, she's got her work cut out for her with this veto and also like the rest of them, she's probably said just about everything she's got to say. But like Enzo, she keeps trying to amuse them and us, and that's worth ups in my book.

    Won: 42" 3D TV; 1 week penguin
    Lost: his clothes
    VTE Ragan
    He's got pretty much everyone out here hating on him now and why? He's the same as he was the first days when most like him: over the top, gross, vulgar, and quite often really funny. At least he's trying, which is more than can be said about his Brigade Buddies.

    Won: $5,000; Hawaii trip;
    24 18 hours solitary
    No vote (nominee)
    Kudos to him for another win. He's on the fast track to win this thing and there's not much any of them can do about it. I'm the first to admit he's smarter than I originally thought he was, but he sure hasn't been any more entertaining than I thought he would be.

    Won: $1,091.17; phone call
    No vote (HOH)
    Once in awhile he'll make an effort to be fun but his banter with Britney has pretty much run its course, and his animal stories aren't winning him any fans. His Diary shtick was fun at first but they caught on to that and made him into a caricature of himself in there. He's not even trying on the feeds.

    Won: $20,000; Veto ticket
    He's one of the most intelligent hamsters we've ever had but he wasn't smart enough to supplement his vast BB knowledge by ever having watched the feeds - if he had, he may have won it all easily. He fulfilled the gay role without being a stereotype, even though he cried, moped around and talked to himself way more than he should have. His friendships with Matt & Britney felt genuine and were fun to watch develop. He talked game and studied far too much but when he went into a skit, nobody could beat him.

    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?'
