Who should get $25k extra?
- Britney

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 had their own room again, cold showers again, slop again, plus additional food items decided by viewer votes.

Nobody knows why Paolo wasn't there.

The winner of BB12 won $500k and 2nd place got $50k. The others earned $750 a week including pre-show hotel and jury sequester.

The habitat had 52 cameras and 95 microphones.

The recorded Big Brother in-house announcements are the voice of producer Don Wollman.

    We have a winner

    After way too much rehashing, Julie finally got down to quizzing Hayden & Lane over what the jurors said, and they went to a tiebreaker about how many times they were banged into the wall on the last comp.. Hayden won, and evicted Enzo

    The jurors came out, the early evictees came out, Matt's disease lie came out again, but Hayden's $5k and Hawaii trip didn't.. Julie finally counted the votes and we had our first split vote of the season, but Hayden won the money by one

    Britney won the $25k America's Vote, and that was that.. still a few more post-interviews to come, so keep checking Links of the Day on right sidebar

    It was a long, slow season but it's finally over and I thank all of you for reading, TD/Mooman for another great season of BB Park, @smellykelley for being the first to notice Lane's showers and for superhuman Flashback skills, @attwx for invaluable assistance, @mamafox for chatroom help, @amys_bus_ticket for slews of caps, DreamAngel for not missing a single episode for us westies, and all the great chatters and posters in my chatroom and forum

    And once again I thank all the hamsters.. love 'em or hate 'em, you have to give them credit for putting themselves out there for our amusement.. even if we weren't as amused as some seasons, they did provide some entertainment and kept us off the streets

    Ultimate BBQ Smackdown

    Finale day brought a sad story: the home Britney & fiance Nick Grisham shared was heavily damaged by fire Tuesday night.. the blaze was possibly started from the backyard grill running amok, like they do

    Nick got both of their dogs out safely, and some possessions have been salvaged.. Britney won't be told about the fire until after the finale

    Daily Ratings - It's a Wrap final edition

    VTW = Voted to win

    I can't give them ups for this finale or this season, as there were just too many things wrong with it, not the least of which was their blocking the feeds more than ever this season. The finale wasted too much time on rehash reruns and the few confrontations we might have had were directed by Julie.. in short, there was nothing notable really, and definitely nothing spectacular. Julie didn't even out Hayden's taking the $5k and Hawaii trip from that veto comp. But so be it: this show's been on auto-pilot the last few seasons and tonight's finale was no exception. Big Brother 13 has been announced now, and all I hope is that they go back to the original premise.. knowing that's a long shot, I hope they axe their stale casting formula and get some genuine personalities in there that will do more than lay around all summer.

    In the ultimate shun to feedsters, Allison Grodner didn't do a backyard interview with Superpass, although she appeared to be making the rounds with the other media outlets.

    Won: $505,000; Hawaii trip; 24 18 hours solitary
    His Justin Bieber hair was ridiculous but he started changing it up a bit after he got zinged by the Zingbot about it. He turned out to be smarter than he looked which is good, since he routinely made some of the dumbest 'Doh' faces we've ever seen. He'd win the congeniality award if there was one, since he befriended most of them on individual levels, and seems like he's a genuinely nice guy. Like his fellow Brigadiers, he didn't do much in the way of gaming or winning comps, but they didn't have to.

    Won: $51,091.17; phone call
    He didn't really do much in there but eat, but his brotherly flirting with Britney was fun for all, and his one-liners and funny stories kept things light in an otherwise dead boring season. The real showmance of BB12 were his daily trysts with the swimmy tubes in the pool, and he turned hanging out into an art form. He'll also be remembered for his many masturbating showers, and now everyone knows he's got a thing for having his ears fiddled with.

    Won: 42" 3D TV; 1 week penguin
    Lost: his clothes
    VTW Hayden
    Runner-up Star of the Season behind Britney for his rapidfire one-liners, Meow Meow and Joisey attitude, and he made a great penguin even though he didn't wear his beak and he snuck peanuts. He'll be remembered for inventing acronyms that required a cheat sheet to follow, for cheating on slop without punishment, for missing his wife & baby girl, and for not doing much else. Many found him disgusting, but he's the type of entertainer we need in there and he'll be fondly remembered as the guido version of BB6/7 Howie.

    Won: $35,010; 24 15 hrs chained to Brendon; 1 hour with Jessie
    VTW Lane
    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
    VTW Hayden
    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
    VTW Lane
    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
    VTW Hayden
    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
    VTW Hayden
    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
    VTW Lane
    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?'
