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.

Who should get $25k extra?
Vote free at - Hamsterwatch endorses Britney

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.

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

    They're back (Wednesday)

    Feeds came back at 9pm on the dot after a 36-hour blackout, to Hayden cutting Enzo's hair, Lane studying and being whispery with Hayden about it, Lane jacking off in the shower, and all three of them thinking the finale is tomorrow

    All signs point to Hayden having won Part 1.. it looked like the kind of comp we buy the feeds for but alas, we'll have to rely on the CBS edit.. this time they'll be able to exaggerate the endurance times beyond anything resembling reality since they wouldn't let us watch it happen

    Hamsterwatch endorses Britney for the $25k favorite prize.. voting link is on the left sidebar along with lots of other information you may or may not find helpful

    They hate us (Tuesday)

    The feeds shut down early Tuesday in Big Brother 12 producers' latest blunder.. they went to the fishies for awhile, and then they began rerunning Showtime After Dark from the premiere night, complete with its idiotic scrolls about the stabo ready to WREAK HAVOC and other nonsense.. it's not surprising to see how dull they all were even on the first night they went public: we should have all taken the hint, skipped BB12, and had a summer

    Helpful Hamsterwatchers at Tuesday's taping reported that Britney was evicted, as expected.. part 1 of the Final HOH comp was endurance as usual: a hanging, banging-into-walls affair similar to the mid-season endurance in BB10.. sorry, I've got no results as to who won.. I believe this was the first Final HOH endurance that we've not seen on the feeds - not counting the wasted apparatus comps that ended quickly such as BB5, BB7 and BB9.. even with those it's always been a highlight of the season for feedsters

    To add insult to injury, Tuesday night's Showtimers got three hours of the Final 4 that were recorded Tuesday morning - three hours of making shirts and laying around that were blocked from the feeds.. and in an odd switcharoo, F1 started rerunning Showtime blocks from the season start on Tuesday afternoon

    Apparently the feeds will come back after Wednesday's 24-hour-old show airs, which probably means 9pm PT/midnight ET like the premiere.. then we've got an entire week of nothing until this shambles of a sorry season is put to rest


    Monday night we had a treat on the feeds - not a good enough treat to counter the stabotage of Tuesday & Wednesday, but nice just the same.. we got quick flashes of lots of the odds & ends of the habitat decor, most of which I'd never seen before, and I've watched day & night since July 8

    We used to get this kind of thing all the time but we didn't this year, other than the hours of staring at the shark or flamingoes.. these are the kinds of things I used to use for the Producers pic in the Daily Ratings section, and I didn't have much to choose from this season

    Maybe the cap-A Artist in the control room who used to do this stuff came back for the night and/or maybe they were prepping segues for the season retrospective show.. at any rate I won't be doing much for the next week since there won't be much to do, but some of these are pretty cool and may help take up the slack a bit - please to enjoy








    Along with the bits & pieces of the habitat, we also got a lot of random shots of the hamsters' messes and their belongings.. this year the habitat had far more of that "lived in" look than ever before







    I can no longer promote the feeds in good conscience
    but Flashback is there if you want to go back and see what wasn't blocked

    Won: 42" 3D TV; 1 week penguin
    Lost: his clothes
    VTE Britney

    Won: $5,000; Hawaii trip;
    24 18 hours solitary
    No vote (HOH)
    WON PART 1

    Won: $1,091.17; phone call
    No vote (nominee)
    WON PART 2

    Won: $10,010; 24 15 hrs chained to Brendon; 1 hour with Jessie
    She wasn't volatile like Rachel but she's the Hamsterwatch Star of the Season nonetheless, as well as Most Photogenic - her caps were consistently better than the three pro models. She was a funny mean girl with both Monet & Ragan, and she was quick & witty most of the time including her ongoing Sonny & Cher banter with Lane. She's a living DVR and her convo retells were usually better than the originals while being 100% accurate. She was the last female with six guys and pulled it off well, but she broke down when the Final 3 lowered The Brigade boom.

    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?'
