|This site is about the Big Brother 13 feeds and contains spoilers! It isn't necessarily thorough: it's what I catch and/or what interests me, and it 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. If they aren't entertaining, get rid of 'em! Thanks for encouraging my behavior. Your pal, dingo
Rachel is Head of Household
Keith & Porsche are nominated
Daniele has Golden Key
BB13 DRINKING GAME
Drink the whole bottle - BB13 feeds are on!
Which hamsters are returning and any other twist(s) will be revealed on the premiere
CBS shows will air Sundays and Wednesdays at 8pm, and live eviction Thursdays at 9pm
It sounds like BBAD will air 1-4 Thursdays and 12-3 other nights, on Showtime in USA and Global Reality in Canada
BB13 prizes are probably the same: $500k for the winner and $50k for 2nd place. The others probably still 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 baaaack, bitchesThe dreaded rumors all came true: no sooner than we'd been introduced to the eight new hamsters, Rachel & Brendon came through the door, followed by Jeff & Jordan, and Dick & Daniele.. this threw the new ones for a loop, since many of them had seen the returnees' seasons
Before that, Julie made the new ones pair up - see below for who's with whom - but not the old ones, which was a big mistake on production's part if you ask me - clearly they didn't.. a pair must be nominated together, meaning they'll have to campaign against their partner, which is kinda cool
Their HOH comp was a typical BB premiere endurance with a phallic theme, this time they hung on bananas in their pairings, which naturally came with all the middle school humor & innuendo you'd expect from a network primetime show.. most of the new ones had said in their pre-season interviews that they didn't want to win the first HOH, but Rachel always has her own strategy, and she won.. the good news there is we'll get treated in a week or so to a Rachel HOH blog
Julie informed them and us of more twistage: the surviving nominee after eviction will get "The Big Brother Golden Key" which means they can't be nominated until there are only ten left, which will give strategizing a whole new mind-boggling spin
The feeds came on precisely as scheduled, which was new and very refreshing
Some things haven't changedThe feeds are as confusing as any first night: 14 of them is entirely too many to keep track of - well, 13 of them, since Dick was missing.. we only had to learn eight new ones which made it easier, but considering this is their sixth day in there, they've probably covered just about all of the small talk get-to-know-you stuff
Jeff & Jordan went back to their usual hand-in-pantsing soon enough, and the others went about their business whispering, strategizing, parannoying and eating, like hamsters do.. Rachel organized a game of Rearrange Things to play via spyscreen, and Kalia tried to learn how to play chess, which wasn't easy from Brendon's instructions
The colorful library room was changed into a padded cell motif for the Have-nots, which seem to be Adam, Dominic, Cassi, and Lawon, but that's not confirmed.. the nominations are though: Keith & Porsche
It sounds like the veto comp might be tomorrow as they were on lockdown all night, with construction noises outside.. game-wise, it looks like it might be the has-beens versus the new meat, predictably, but they all lie so nothing's proven there yet.. Adam's already scheming his brains out
Feeds went to trivia around 1:30am, shortly after Daniele was called to Diary in the middle of the Dick mystery, fueling all sorts of wild & dramatic rumors, but it could mean a night-time veto comp or it could just be that a new intern flipped the wrong switch.. stay tuned
Nope, the feeds came back around 4:30am and Dick was gone, Daniele has a Golden Key, and Rachel & Brendon were moping and had apparently threatened to leave too, likely worried about the ratio of has-beens to newbies
Update CBS press reports confirmed Friday that Dick is gone from Big Brother 13 due to "personal reasons".. we may never know the real story as both CBS and Dick are quite proficient at providing spin, if they want to.. some suspect he was booted for announcing he'd be on the show in a video but I tend to doubt it since a) it was posted after the premiere started, b) production let it leak that he'd be on (albeit not directly), and c) he's famous for skirting the rules.. unconfirmed rumors as well as the remaining hamsters think it may have something to do with his girlfriend - here's hoping she's okay, and him too.. he would have made this whole has-beens idea into something interesting rather than a bunch of reruns
Ratings - First Feeds editionRatings are based on entertainment value but there wasn't much to go on, and I'm out of practice. I'll give them new pics if/when we get feeds again.

News & updatesThe Android app release has been delayed until Friday (hopefully). CBS hired the developer, not SuperPass, so that could explain it. If you want to search Android Market for it before you see a release announcement, it'll be the one by Treemo - the others there are mostly foreign BBs or Twitter hashtag retweets.
We don't yet know how the veto will work with the pairs. Chances are good we'll figure it out from the feeds.
