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.

It's a whole different show than CBS puts on the air

    What's ethics got to do with it?

    Maybe Jonny Fairplay isn't the right person to illustrate that question.. we all know this is a network television show and network television isn't known for ethics, but what goes on behind the scenes of the Big Brother interwebs would make your head spin

    I was a little stunned to discover the other day that the owner of one BB site is actually credited as a production assistant on two seasons of Big Brother.. this is one of the sites that has early scoops - not rumors, but real info that turns out to be accurate, which means they are being fed these early leak tidbits by BB production - but they take great pains to hush up that part of it

    While that's all well and good for building buzz & interest and so forth, it also means some folks will go ahead and sign up for their feeds while checking out the dish on those sites, taking money out of the pockets of the rest of us who have to work for our BB information

    I've always been the redhaired stepchild of Big Brother sites and I'll never get any kind of scoop from production - maybe they don't like how I always poke at them and their goofs - but it's just not right that they feed information to selected sites that masquerade as ordinary fansites like the rest of us, when they're not.. maybe they're even on the payroll

    Media Day is June 30

    That's when the big press announcements about Big Brother 12 hit, including reports from the 11 journalists who spend the day in the habitat.. they do practice comps, ceremonies, Diaries, etc so the tech crew can iron out the kinks, set up camera angles and so forth, and of course BB benefits from the stories they post

    I don't know for sure, but I suspect it happened yesterday, June 18, and I'm making an educated guess that Matt Whitfield of Yahoo! Entertainment, Ben Mandelker of, and Andrea Reiher of were among the participants.. also had/will have a representative there, and chances are good at least one former hamster was there as well

    More news to follow as it comes along

    Early birds save $10!

    All signups include a three-day free trial, and all signups help to support this site, so thank you very much for using my links to get your feeds!

    The countdown is on

    Big Brother 12 is coming! It premieres July 8 at 8pm, and the feeds will kick on later that night.. as always, the hamsters will have already been in there together for several days, so it's important to start your summer hamsterwatching right away: alliances, friendships and showmances will have already formed, and even though most won't last, they'll leave residue that will affect the entire season

    BB12 will have a beach and/or summer camp theme again this time.. executive producer Allison Grodner has promised the usual "surprises", "twists and turns", and "amped-up challenges", which all adds up to a season that sounds pretty much the same as always.. Julie Chen will be back and Showtime will be back.. unfortunately Ross Mathews won't be back (at least not in an official capacity) but SuperPass promises more content, interviews and webshows, featuring BB6/7 Janelle Pierzina

    CBS shows will run at 8pm Sundays, Wednesdays, and live on Thursdays.. the first live eviction will be July 15, and that's when things really start to heat up

    Alumni news & mugshots keep coming

    Three former hamsters are facing a lot more than the usual 15 minutes of notoriety.. BB9 winner Adam Jasinski was busted last fall for trying to sell 2,000 Oxycodone pills to an undercover officer - he admitted using some of his BB winnings to fund his drug-selling operation.. this didn't come as news to hamsterwatchers who pay attention, since he often talked on the feeds about being hooked on Oxycontin right up til the day he went into the habitat.. he faces up to 20 years in prison, but he'll likely have a somewhat shorter stay in the Big Habitat since he recently announced he's going to change his not guilty plea

    His Bible Buddy that year turned out to be his cohort in crime, as Matt McDonald was also arrested for being involved in Adam's Oxy ring.. this came on the heels of Matt's arrest for beating up his pregnant girlfriend, and then attempting to intimidate her into not pressing charges

    Meanwhile, BB3 Tonya (Paoni) Casper is in an Illinois jail on a $1,000,000 bond for drunk driving - last summer she caused a chain reaction crash involving five cars that left two dead

    Remember, the same team who cast these three for our BB viewing enjoyment also picked this year's cast

    In happier news, BB6/7 Janelle Pierzina and BB11 Natalie Martinez are now married women (not to each other), and BB2/7 Dr. Will Kirby and BB10 April Dowling are now parents (not with each other)

    On a personal note

    It's not been a good year around my habitat.. my adult daughter (yes, I am old) was hospitalized for 10 days before Christmas, racking up mammoth bills that we can't pay.. she's unable to work and SSI hasn't responded to her claim, so guess who's supporting her and her cat?

    My dad went in for emergency surgery in early April, which he came through okay, but one thing after another has had him bouncing back & forth between hospital and rehab/convalescent since then.. I've been looking after his home and cat, paying his bills, and trotting his laundry and so forth back & forth, losing a lot of work as a result.. I told him he has a July 8 deadline to get back home

    I'm planning on doing the site like last year with a few daily highlights, news, and of course daily ratings, drinking games and snark, plus Twitter updates and Twitpic caps, but obviously if anything major happens with either of my charges or if money runs out, I may have to duck out here or there.. fingers are crossed that everything works out for everyone including you, my loyal readers

    I humbly beg you to please use my links to sign up for the feeds, and to use any of my ad links to purchase items that interest you - doing so will totally help me keep the site going.. huge thanks in advance!

    iTrixie the papillon will be helping me multi-task my brains out in her second season as Official Hamsterwatch Assistant.. she now knows what to expect and she's not looking forward to it - she knows her tennis ball fetch time will be decreasing soon
