|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
Nobody is Have-not
Daniele has Golden Key
BB13 DRINKING GAME
Take a swig whenever the feeds go to palms or fishies or control room - dry out during trivia
Big Brother 13 at iTunes
Season Pass or individual episodes
Nominations & veto will be pairs-based until there are 10 left.
The surviving partner of evictee gets one of four Golden Keys, 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
BBAD airs 1-4am Thursdays and 12-3am 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.

IF YOU DON'T HAVE THE LIVE FEEDS, YOU ARE MISSING THE REAL SHOW
Cheesy pictures dayThe camera came out for lots of over-posing and toothy smiles.. so far most of this crew is getting along pretty much, so the happy family scenes aren't as incongruous as they will be later on
Cassi's working hard to dump Porsche, and agreed with Brendon that they've had a lot of blow-ups thus far - we've missed them but I have a feeling they don't really qualify as blow-ups compared to what we've had in the past.. Keith's campaigning hard and his hyper explanations of things are funny to watch: he uses logic like predicting a 6-4 vote while saying people will "vote with the house" in the same breath
Keith's also perturbed because he's all packed but he keeps telling everyone Porsche hasn't even started, making her seem too confident of her safety.. I'm currently torn over which would provide the most viewing fun for us, so I guess it doesn't matter which leaves - I can't keep up with the waffling or the lies or the double-dippers
Finally, the season's beginningThey were all locked in HOH for awhile which is unusual for a Wednesday - all these non-stop talkers went silent like they always do on Thursdays in there.. technical problems made the feeds dicey for awhile after that.. those little oddities that make Big Brother what it is are coming along nicely: along with the resident ants, they've now got fruitflies in the pantry - cockroaches can't be far behind.. Adam's exercising with drink jugs - which makes sense, 8 lb per gallon and all that, and they've got handles.. but most of all, paranoia is setting in on this eviction eve
Rachel & Brendon are starting their Great Fall from upstairs, snapping at each other and freaking out about tomorrow's HOH comp and its outcome.. Keith's spinning himself in circles with anti-logic at 100 mph.. Shelly spent a good long time trying to talk him down, telling him good stuff - hopefully he heard some of it.. potential catfights are brewing between Cassi and the other girls, though I don't think Cassi's aware of it yet, and Daniele & Rachel's BFF-ness is starting to have a lot of subtle digs, mostly from Daniele
Tomorrow it gets good

Clicky: caps sorted by day - all caps
News & updatesFallout from Jeff's Harry Potter Tuesday tirade continues: it's hit TMZ, Entertainment Weekly, TV Guide, GLAAD, and many other mainstream sites.
CBS issued a canned response Wednesday: "Big Brother is a reality show about watching a group of people who have no privacy 24/7 - and seeing every moment of their lives. At times, the Houseguests make comments, reveal prejudices and other beliefs that we do not condone. Any views or opinions expressed in personal commentary by a Houseguest appearing on BIG BROTHER, either on any live feed from the House or the broadcast, are those of the individual(s) speaking and do not represent the views or opinions of CBS or the producers of the program."
If you missed and want to see what the flak's all about, flashback 7/12 6.45pm F1. Kalia's moved past it as have the rest of the hamsters, but many out here have not.
