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


Keith evicted 6-4
Jordan is Head of Household
Adam & Dominic are nominated
Adam, Dominic, Cassi, Shelly are Have-nots
Daniele & Porsche have Golden Keys

Season Pass or individual episodes

They call Dominic PT for pre-teen, a running gag about how young he looks.

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.

Finally a new week (Friday)

The double-length first week is over and we're finally on our regular schedule.. they had their food comp which left Adam & Dominic as Have-nots along with Shelly & Cassi for a second week.. they got jerky & jellybeans to supplement, including meatless soy jerky for Cassi.. it was another messy comp with more planking hamsters, and possibly ant costumes? There was some muck they had to crawl through, a couple of them threw up, many complained, and one of them described something that sounded more like Human Centipede than a reality show comp.. Kalia hurt her shoulder and saw the medic, and both she & Brendon applied bandaids to their knees afterward

Dominic & Daniele remain cozy, and engaged in that summer staple of do-it-yourself chiropractice.. Jeff & Jordan (mostly Jeff) held their pre-nom meetings and put up Adam & Dominic as planned, with Dominic as the target.. Jeff shmoozed Dominic pretty well, except for the part where Jeff said Dominic doesn't know what's going on there

Tensions are mounting among the females, with most of them still trashing Cassi behind her back and vice versa.. it's just a matter of time till we have a good catfight, and it can't come soon enough

Adam gave me and this site not one but two more major shout-outs, including a virtual site map - Hamsterwatchers love you too, Adam! We've sent word to Fara that she shouldn't panic.. yet

Showtime brought no booze unfortunately, so no fights (other than the ongoing Rachel/Brendon stuff), but I think they're brewing and I hope they'll hit soon.. tomorrow is the veto comp and that's been known to set off some fireworks in the past - fingers crossed


HOH bodycount (Thursday)

I will never understand why these people who never shut up otherwise are invariably silent whenever they go into HOH lockdown.. sure, some need to catch up on sleep, some can't stand each other (that'll get worse), and obviously they can't discuss their everlasting vote waffles or premature nomination plans, but you'd think they'd engage in some of their usual chit-chat at least once in awhile.. but they don't

The first of many Thursday primp-a-thons took place on cue, and then they were whisked away by trivia

The hamsters handled their first live vote like pros, and evicted Keith by a 6-4 vote.. Dominic, Cassi, Lawon and Adam were the four who voted to evict Porsche.. Jordan won HOH in a golfing comp

I've temporarily misplaced the rest of Thursday's items, but I don't think there was much other than Jordan's HOH goodies and letter.. I hope to replace it here soon


Ratings - First Eviction edition

Ratings are yesterday's, based on entertainment value - not much has changed.
VTE = Voted to evict

I'm glad to see they fixed Julie's bio on the CBS BB site and I'm wondering how many heads rolled over the major omission of not upgrading her there from 'The Early Show' to 'The Talk' until I pointed it out. I'm also wondering once again where I should send my invoice for consulting fees? Seriously, I'm tired of doing their quality control for free and am starting to rethink keeping count of their goofs on the Extracurricular Tally. On the other hand, it's nice to know they're reading me.

As for the show, the farewell edits were the best we've had in a long time and the comp rerun clip was thankfully short. They really blew the Rachel/Brendon fight edit but at least they got BUKI out there on the air - if he hadn't made such a huge stink of that, nobody would have ever noticed it. I'm in the minority thinking Julie's mix of professional with pink was a good choice: she does glam very well as we all know, but this was a nice change.

Paired with Dominic
VTE Porsche
He says he just wants to stay safe until his birthday August 7, and it sounds like he might get that wish. That's fine with me since he keeps mentioning me and this site on the feeds - he did it again tonight. Hey, maybe they're letting that slip through as payment for my free quality control services? Unfortunately it doesn't translate into the cash I desperately need.

Paired with Rachel
VTE Keith
His act has officially gotten old again. It's still fascinating in a sick & twisted way to watch him harass Rachel and profess his love in every wrong way possible, but he's a dud on his own. Unfortunately it looks like we're stuck with him for awhile.

Paired with Shelly
VTE Porsche
She never stops trashing Porsche but will she start a catfight about it? No she won't. She had a major trashfest overnight that also included Rachel & Kalia, so things should heat up sooner or later. Her biggest fault and one that won't endear her to Shelly or Adam is she smokes just as much now as she did before she ran out of cigarettes.

Paired with Dick
VTE Keith
If she was new, she'd have solid ups for her stellar gameplay, smooth social skills and sarcastic humor, not to mention her stylish save for the no 'I love you?' fiasco, but I've already seen her on Big Brother and I'm trying to focus on the new ones. It's not easy, since the has-beens are about all they show us.

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 production. No real word yet on why Dick's gone (and there may never be) but he sure was looking rough in the premiere.

Paired with Adam
VTE Porsche
I never had a bratty little brother following me around, but thanks to him I know now what it's like.

Paired with Jordan
VTE Keith
See Daniele.

Paired with Jeff
VTE Keith
Ups for winning with golf, again, and for being classy enough not to correct Julie for forgetting. She's perked up a bit now and is back to her former self (which we've seen before), but she seems to have matured a bit and also seems more aware of what's going on in there than she was last time around.

Paired with Lawon
VTE Keith
Ups for her great comedy late last night/early this morning, entertaining the overnight crowd in there & out here with long, elaborate skits in the wee hours. She seems to be off everyone's radar for now and that's fine with me: I think she's a keeper, but I'm not 100% sure yet.

Paired with Porsche
He claimed to be a fan since BB1 but even watching only CBS, he clearly wasn't paying attention: who throws a veto comp when they're on the block? He went in with a clearly outlined womanizing strategy which failed miserably, he set off another BB Weinergate, and he panicked himself right out the door.

Paired with Kalia
VTE Porsche
At this point, this guy can do no wrong in my book. From the Crocs 'n socks to the baby blue glitter do-rag to all his comedy including Dawon and his easy friendliness and intelligence, he may be the best overall hamster we've had in a long time.

Paired with Keith
No vote (nominee)
If she's happy & grateful to have been saved, I didn't see it. I also haven't seen the drama she seemed so capable of last week, or much of anything.

Paired with Brendon
No vote (HOH)
See Brendon, but she gets an upgrade to neutral since you can never predict what might come out of her mouth next, plus her inappropriate clothing choices never fail to be amusing and confusing at the same time.

Paired with Cassi
VTE Keith
Super solid ups for casting an ultra smooth hinky vote and for shmoozing the crowd on both sides before and after. She's a legit business exec (chief marketing officer) so she definitely knows how to get things done, plus she seems to have successfully infiltrated both camps without raising any suspicions.

News & updates

All speculation can now end as to Julie's extended interviews with evictees and whether they'd be on "The Early Show" again or "The Talk" (which would seem an ideal venue): she didn't ask Keith anything more than what we saw on the air.

There is some speculation starting that he might have been whisked off to sequester for a possible future revival, but nothing will be certain there until he does or doesn't surface in the next couple of days. He will be doing interviews with SuperPass and, and possibly others, so see if those allow any questions that could taint a potential jury member or not, and then see if he's sighted out and about or not.

I sure hope they don't go there - we've had enough reruns already this season.
