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


Jordan is Head of Household
Adam & Dominic are nominated
Adam & Dominic won the veto
Adam, Dominic, Cassi, Shelly are Have-nots
Rachel's on slop 2 weeks from 7/16
Daniele & Porsche have Golden Keys


Pick one: Take a swig whenever Cassi trashes somebody, or when somebody trashes her (drinking for both would put you in the ER)

Season Pass or individual episodes

They call Dominic PT for pre-teen, a running gag about how young he looks, and/or part-time, referring to his modeling career.

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.

Watch Big Brother 13 on SuperPass!

Getting to know you, all over again

This new Daniele really takes some getting used to for feedsters who watched BB8, and it's not just the dark hair.. four years ago she was usually laying around with Nick and/or whining, but Daniele 2.0 is the life of the party: she's the busiest get-around girl of all of them, she's often the loudest (yes, including Rachel), and she's definitely the one most likely to be caught goofing or laughing.. it's quite a change, and a refreshing one

Granted, she doesn't have handicap of personal family stuff getting in her way, and she's noticeably matured (as most people do between 20 and 24).. I'd still rather have all fresh faces, but she almost qualifies as one.. she also seems to be making the best progress infiltrating both the veterans and the newbies sides, and that's something in itself

Adam & Dominic won the veto, or possibly just Dominic but they're probably both safe now, and tension is building as a result: Rachel & Brendon played along with Jorff and the nominees, and the feeds came back to Jeff ranting about Rachel's behavior during the comp, and Rachel crying & whining to Brendon - flashback 7/16 3.30pm for the fallout.. Rachel took two weeks on slop which means she'll get pissy when Brendon eats, but it also means no booze for her - boo


New besties

Unfortunately a fight did not ensue, again: Rachel & Jeff apologized to each other.. potential replacement nominee Kalia spent most of the afternoon & evening buddying up to Jordan, and was invited to a wine bubble bath.. I don't know if Kalia is aware of how often Jordan shaves her legs but I do know she's got a phobia about loose, unattached hair - Jordan started shaving, and Kalia spent the whole time perched on the edge of the tub rather than joining in

Rachel & Dominic are also whispering now, which is also new.. my latest drinking game is a bust so far - I should have run it a few days ago, but I'm not giving up hope yet that the trashing of and by Cassi will rev up again, preferably face to face - we need some drama in there

The hammock died at 11.48pm: Porsche had just left a session in it with Rachel and Brendon sat down to join her for some canoodling, when he went down to the ground - they said the frame is now bent or something.. Cassi hung out with the girls in HOH for awhile but barely said a word.. later she sniffled to Shelly, who continues to boost her up to no end

Jeff & Jordan had a couple mini-spats about how to proceed from here, since they were counting on booting Dominic and now can't.. they'll probably stick to the original alternate plan and send Cassi out the door, but they're cycling through all their possibilities, like they do.. many if not most feedsters are hoping Jordan will get rid of Rachel while she can, but she probably won't


Another live feed show

Unlike the letdown when the post-veto tension once again did not lead to a fight, there was some high action elsewhere on the internet tonight

A high-speed chase in SoCal ran for three hours plus over least nine freeways.. apparently it started as a possible DUI but the driver seemed to be doing okay as he sped through traffic with a dozen flashing cop cars behind him.. apparently it came to an end, sans crash, not long after he hit the Grapevine on I-5 but the helicopter shooting the footage had lost sight of him just prior to that

Well, it was a CBS news copter - think of the anticlimactic ending as just more fishies


Ratings - The Game is Afoot edition

Ratings are based on entertainment value - nothing more, nothing less

Dear feedmasters,
Instead of punishing us, your paying customers, with endless fishies for their singing and talking about Diary or non-released friends, please punish them instead! Start using those penalty noms you're so famous for threatening with. Or better yet, just cut to another room when the dear little hamsters break the damn rules. Also, they need more booze more often. Thank you very much.
Your pal,
P.S. Kudos for fixing up the goofs I found for you so fast. If I find some spare time, maybe I'll hunt around for more - fair warning!

Paired with Dominic
He's grossing out some feedsters with his random explosions, belly bouncing, and hairy back, but that's okay. He's a good guy and now he'll stick around awhile longer to continue doing that stuff. Go Adam, and back at you! (Flashback 7/17 3.20am F4)

Paired with Rachel
Normally a hammock dump would be automatic ups, but I'm this close to putting him on ignore.

Paired with Shelly
She's all but history and bikini fans will miss her, but I'm tired of her ongoing loops about her unemployed father and jailbird brother, and especially the one about always being 'the pretty girl'. Yes she is very pretty but what else does she bring to our messy little table? None of the fights she should be bringing, that's for sure.

Paired with Dick
See above. I don't want a vet to win (I don't even want them to last much longer), but at least she's bringing some life to the feeds and she's playing what appears to be a pretty solid game.

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
I'm over him and his weird comments, but I'd normally give up ups anyway for winning the veto. Unfortunately for him, those ups are neutralized because it means he'll be around at least another week, which means his thunderous snoring will also be around another week.

Paired with Jordan
Easy ups for being so explosive after the veto comp but they're neutralized by not following through. His little mini-spats with Jordan were interesting in that he talks to her kind of like Brendon talks to Rachel, but Jordan doesn't react like Rachel does, and Jorff don't escalate it into something ridiculous.

Paired with Jeff
Despite her ditzy, her social skills seem to be as finely tuned as ever and that's the best kind of skills you can have in this game. She & Jeff still seem to be on a date rather than a couple who's been together two years, especially when they're alone in the HOH greenlight. Alternately, they act like an old married couple who's been together 30 years, but still like each other.

Paired with Lawon
She's getting a lot of flak out here for eating and dressing down, but I'm grateful for any overnight entertainment and she's one of the ringleaders of that crew. She was a bit obvious with her sucking up to Jordan tonight, but avoiding the leg hairs in the bathwater was comedy gold.

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
I rarely have favorites but I've got one this year. At least so far.

Paired with Keith

Paired with Brendon
See Brendon. She could get gone this week but unfortunately I don't think Jordan will do it.

Paired with Cassi
She's a world class shmoozer and she does it with what appears to be genuine concern: that's a rare talent and one that should carry her far. I don't know why they haven't yet figured out her hinky vote but they haven't, so more power to her.

News & updates

There is some speculation that Keith might have been whisked off to sequester after his eviction, but nothing will be certain there until he does or doesn't surface in the next couple of days. He did some interviews with SuperPass,, and others, but they seem to be mostly fluff and nothing that could taint the game should he be revived.

Personally I hope they don't go there - we've had enough reruns already this season, but being sequestered wouldn't guarantee Revive-a-Hamster anyway: both Annie and Monet were locked up after they left the habitat, and then they were set free without making a return to BB12.

Practicing Final 2 speeches:
Rachel: Why should you win instead of me?
Brendon: I'm just trying to save lives

Rachel to Brendon: You shouldn't say that, it sounds really mean and there's people on live feeds watching us

Jeff to Jordan: I should have bit my tongue too, but I can only take so much

Shelly: Let's go cause trouble, let's go do something! Not just lay here, it's boring

Cassi about Diary: They keep asking me about being the pretty girl in the house and how does it feel to be the prettiest girl in the room? [cut to fishies]

Shelly about Rachel & Brendon: I'm gonna interrupt the slobberfest right now
