Watch Big Brother 13 on SuperPass! Daily Hamsterwatch
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 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
Rachel & Brendon hold veto
Have-nots are Kalia, Shelly, Cassi, Lawon
Daniele has Golden Key


Take a swig whenever Keith does a mirror check - take two when he changes clothes



The surviving partner of evictee gets a Golden Key, meaning they can't be nominated or play for HOH until there are 10 left.

Dick left myseriously, off the feeds, due to 'personal reasons' per CBS. We may never know the full story.

CBS shows 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 the same: $500k for the winner and $50k for 2nd place. The others 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.

Watch Big Brother 13 on SuperPass!

A near fight

We had a scuffle today but I missed it due to real life interference.. apparently Porsche & Keith got into it again, then Keith & Lawon, and Kalia, then more Porsche & Keith plus Brendon & Rachel - flashback to around 5.30pm to see how it unfolded

What I did see was very late last night/early this morning, Daniele was having a laugh riot that was really funny, and surprising - this new Daniele definitely takes some getting used to.. I also noticed the lights were on in the Have-not room while they were asleep, which is something that's been threatened in the past but not carried out - nice to see it is this time

Today Shelly did some cleaning up after them all, after saying she wouldn't, and Jeff, Jordan & Brendon spent some time schooling Dominic about the game of Big Brother and how to play it, which just reminded everyone that none of them were known for hard-core strategizing: you don't help the competition if you want to beat them.. we learned that Adam shaved his chest last week and they're hoping that'll hit CBS


And on it goes

They're doing abs class again this year, although it looks like pretzel class.. Keith has come clean about being in HR rather than being a matchmaker, and Cassi's come clean about having done some modeling, but she's acting like it's all in the past.. Lawon told Dominic he'll definitely vote to evict Porsche because they'd shaken hands on it, and because he's in love with Dominic

Brendon dressed up in his catsuit & cape again and cavorted around for them, then Dominic joined him with a petal headband and towel-cape and they did a skit starring Brendon's stuffed turtle Franklin - that's around 9.20pm if you want to flash it back.. it's as hard to avoid Rachel & Brendon on the feeds as ever, but the others are starting to get some face-time

Shelly got Rachel all a-perk when she said she'd seen Chelsea Handler talking about her.. when she asked what it was about, Shelly said "the tape" (meaning Penisgate).. Brendon got all swaggery and invited Chelsea to "Bring it on!" and Rachel didn't pursue the subject anymore.. Shelly told Cassi she feels grateful for her nice life after hearing others' horror stories from their pasts, and it came out that Cassi had confided in her about her dad losing his job and that her brother's in jail.. a bit later she told some of the others also

Strategy chat, vote guarantees, and HOH comp plans rage on unchecked, but it's all so much yack at this point: Big Brother doesn't really start until the first eviction.. it's all foreplay until Thursday

The best thing to flashback today came around 2:15am (July 10 technically) on Feeds 1/2 - well, it was my favorite anyway.. check Lines of the Day below - thanks Adam!


Ratings - Second Feeds edition, again

Ratings are yesterday's, based on entertainment value - sorry for the rerun. I might do weekly ratings this season rather than daily, at least until there are fewer of them. In retrospect, after hearing them discuss me and this site, I really should have updated them today.

That was a fun premiere, even though we already knew the twists and returnees. They really shouldn't leak out so much info out ahead of time - we like a good surprise as much as the CBS-onlies. Sure, the Diaries were virtually scripted, the relationships within the returning duos exaggerated and predictable, and the new kids' reactions to them expected, but no matter how much we don't want to see reruns in there, it will set everything up for great dynamics for those interested in the strategy stuff. I only wish they'd split up the returnee duos, maybe making them pair with new ones, but we can't have everything. Personally I'm going to try to focus on the fresh ones, since we already know the has-beens' shtick. I'm holding out great hope that most of the veterans go early so we can have the new ones to kick around this summer, but more than that, I'm hoping Dick will go after Brendon for Penisgate, and after Rachel for being Rachel. Bottom line, our favorite summer addiction (besides summer fruits & sweet corn) is back, and the pre-edited feeds make it the best show in town. Despite all that, they really deserve a negative for throwing us to trivia on the first night and keeping us there longer than we had feeds, but they get bonus ups for 'The Talk' segment which was really well done and very cute.

Paired with Dominic
Friday: He toned down the game chat today and joined in the activities, and he doesn't seem to be on anyone's radar right now. He lost 100 lbs last year but I don't think he got any new clothes - he's swimming in them.
Thursday: I'm not big on strategy talk and that's about all I heard from him, but I have it on good authority from his hometown buddies that he's a good guy and a Hamsterwatcher, so I'm keeping his options open. He's already the first to mandana this season, but he probably won't be the last.

Paired with Rachel
Friday: He's monopolizing my feeds way too much, especially for a has-been. Watching him play the clappy-bang, he was having entirely too much fun.. I'm wondering if he's ever played a game before.
Thursday: His chess lesson was astoundingly baffling but what more can I say? Been there, done that, slurpydurp.

Paired with Shelly
Friday: She seems to be a good sport and is playing it cool while getting chummy with different factions. She played Throw Balls in Buckets well and they were all impressed.
Thursday: I didn't see much of her but it's a safe assumption she'll be a favorite for the straight guys - there are a few who watch this. She won't tell them she's a bikini model but some of them have probably guessed already. She seems to pose a lot.

Paired with Dick
Friday: It says a lot when she seems to be one of the more mature ones in there - how things have changed! It was astonishing to see a big giant laugh from her tonight - I believe that was first for the feeds. I'm having a hard time adjusting to her new voice.
Thursday: I didn't hear much complaining from her which was good, but I didn't see the cheerful girl from the Rumor Control show either. She didn't seem too concerned that Dick was missing until the others said she should be.. well, it's been four years since she had to Act about that relationship. By the way, I have no idea what really is going on there - we'll have to wait for private one-on-ones between them. Assuming he shows up.

Paired with Daniele
We haven't had a premiere night no-show since BB9 Jacob, and we haven't had a mysterious early exit since BB9 Neil. These pairs twist seasons just seem to complicate things for them. No word yet on why Dick's gone but he sure was looking rough in the premiere.

Paired with Adam
Friday: They all think he's younger than 25 and playing an age lie strategy. They're also on to him being brainier than he says, which isn't surprising when he says things like 'I concur with you.' I don't have much else on him, he's just the mostly pleasant, sometime chatty guy who's always hanging around.
Thursday: It's way too early to call for this guy. They're definitely going to play up the virgin/lives-with-mommy angle but that might not turn out to be worth much. He said he was going to lie to them about being a biochem major since it makes him sound brainy, but I'm hoping that comes out because as we all know, Rachel loves science. And scientists.

Paired with Jordan
Friday: His humor's showing up a bit more and that's a good thing, but he's definitely not the naive doofus we spent the summer with a couple years ago anymore.
Thursday: I like his humor and he had a couple one-liners, but he seems to be treading carefully and not being his usual jovial self. He's been on another CBS show and a CBS web show since we saw him last, he knows about his many admirers now, and he's an idol in there rather than an outcast this time around. I'm hoping it's not the case, but I'm afraid he might be a lot more self-aware than last time around, and that would be a problem for us.

Paired with Jeff
Friday: See Jeff, plus she slept way too much.
Thursday: See Jeff.

Paired with Lawon
Friday: She advertised a boisterous character but she's been laying pretty low so far. When she does talk, she seems interesting and might be playing a good game, but I haven't seen enough of her yet to be sure.
Thursday: She made some great comments and faces, and she's clearly not going to take crap off anyone when the time comes. Unfortunately she's also likely going to sing a lot and that's a problem, but at least she sings well.

Paired with Porsche
Friday: Apparently we missed a major episode last night but the fallout today was fun. His womanizing strategy backfired in a big way and he didn't much like Porsche haranguing him for an hour, but he didn't really fight back or walk away either.
Thursday: He was pretty low key, but that's what happens when you're first on the block. He was very loud before the show about plans to go after the girls and he made a beeline for Porsche when Julie told them to pair up, and later shared a hug with Cassi after Adam strategized at them. Maybe 'Keith's Angels' is going to happen after all.. if he sticks.

Paired with Kalia
Friday: See Kalia
Thursday: He seems pretty low key especially after the gigantic pre-show and premiere buildup, but that's what happens sometimes. I'm not giving up on him yet, and I think it's a safe prediction that he'll be the breakout Diary star of the season. I just hope they don't overdo it.

Paired with Keith
Thursday: They all hate her and I can't figure out why. She announced she'd throw the veto and maybe she did, and she told Rachel not to change the noms.. what's up with that? I hope she sticks around despite all that, as she was parannoying last night and gave us first tears today, and that adds up to a lot of drama potential.
Friday: Another early liar, she said she won't tell them she's a cocktail waitress as that would make her seem too well off to win $500k. Considering she's already nominated just for showing up, that was a bit of premature planning.

Paired with Brendon
Friday: I'm just waiting for her HOH blog.
Thursday: She's back and back to her usual tricks which include being too loud and too Rachel-centric. To her credit, she did try to arrange some activities for our viewing pleasure but they weren't much, especially when she sat down with Cassi and copied BB9 Natalie's patented painting with nail polish. Many aren't happpy that she's HOH but I am as that means we'll have a Rachel HOH blog to look forward to in a week or so.. OMG!

Paired with Cassi
Friday: See Kalia & Lawon, with the additional note that she seems to have worked her way into Rachel, Brendon & Daniele's good graces.
Thursday: She's in there.
