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
Adam & Dominic are nominated
Brendon won veto
Nobody is Have-not
Rachel's on slop (plus HOH goodies) 2 weeks from 7/16
Daniele, Porsche, Shelly have Golden Keys


Take a swig whenever someone asks if Rachel will put up Jeff & Jordan, including yourself. (The answer is no, at this point anyway.)

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 him and CBS. We may never know the full story.

CBS shows air Sundays and Wednesdays at 8pm, and live eviction Thursdays at 9pm

Big Brother After Dark 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.

Pray for booze (Sunday)

It might look typically calm & boring in there as Adam leads abs class - before you scoff, remember Adam's 100 pound weight loss last year - but things are finally heating up

Everyone's finally comparing notes, so Jeff & Brendon are on the warpath about Daniele trashing the HB4 (Has-Beens Four - my name, not theirs), and Daniele's on the warpath about the HB4 planning to sabotage her by dumping Dominic.. Shelly's been extra busy gathering info and planting seeds all over town

If ever they needed a hefty booze delivery, it's tonight - we don't even need Rachel drinking to make this a memorable night


We got a bee instead

They did get a little booze but everyone calmed down as suddenly as they'd been stirred up.. the high point of the evening was a lame bee but hey, at least they had a pet for a little while

Dominic met with Brendon & Rachel for awhile: they both lied endlessly and needlessly and gave him no indication about his impending fate.. Jeff and Brendon each got riled up again about Daniele after Showtime signed off, and Shelly continued planting little seeds here and there, the same kind that set off most of the events of today

Brendon & Rachel had a few more rounds of their ongoing battle - nothing new there, and they had make-up sex again before it even ended.. once again, there's a chance of a blowout after Monday's veto meeting but don't count on it - this year's hamsters disappoint on a regular basis


UNDERSTANDING 2.0 (Saturday)

Jeff & Jordan were picked to play the veto comp again, so CBS viewers and the rest of us can remain blissfully unconfused by new names and faces for another week.. they went out to play for veto with Rachel & Brendon and their nominees Adam & Dominic.. there were duckies involved, but it sounds like they were just decor.. soapsuds were also involved, which got into Rachel's eyes

Spelling was also involved: we know that isn't Rachel's, Jordan's or Jeff's strongest talent, and perhaps not Adam's or Dominic's either, since Brendon won again by spelling out UNDERSTANDING - the same word he won a veto with last season.. coincidence? Perhaps

Jordan & Rachel compared notes about Daniele trying to pit them against each other.. Kalia seemed out of sorts for awhile and then asked Shelly and later Rachel what's going on in there, and launched into a tirade about how much she distrusts and dislikes Lawon.. Shelly told them about the finances convo she'd had with him earlier, leaving out a few pertinent details, and they all decided he must be a lawyer

Brendon got into the first aid kit again to make an eye patch, apparently for some sort of do it yourself vision test - don't ask me.. they got the mini basketball set and a small booze delivery, but it didn't lead to anything good.. some played pool, some laid around, and that was about it until blankie wars broke out over bed sharing so Shelly could finally sleep in a real bed in the dark

Jeff & Jordan had a confrontation with Adam about loyalties and deals and the like: Jeff had a harsher tone than we're used to from him and Adam back-pedaled a lot, but they eventually agreed to buddy up with a handshake and a hug.. Shelly was there the whole time.. unfortunately for him, Adam shouldn't have spent all his time on this site, since I rarely focus on the strategy of BB


Pinky swear recap


Jordan's pinky has been busy this season! She's made pinky safety promises with Dominic (Jeff joined in on that one), and with Kalia, and with Rachel.. you'd think so many pinkies would come back to bite her at some point, and they might, but for now that last one should put an end to the question of Rachel vetoing her own noms to put up Jorff - although you never know with Rachel

Flashback times for those who want the gory details of the deals are 7/17 3.37pm, 7/18 11.27pm, and 7/21 10.03pm - thanks to my crack Flashback buddies @smellykelley and @rissmeek, and to @TheRealHOH


Ratings - It's a Comedy Show edition

Ratings are based on entertainment value

Sunday's would have been a fun show with the flip-flop edits of happy Jeff & Jordan alternating with miserable Rachel & Brendon, if all that wasn't such a tired rerun. Hasselhoff came and ate sushi, and moved on to more TMZ headlines in the wake of an extended commercial for 'Same Name'. I'm surprised the hamsters haven't griped about watching a TV show being the new 'luxury' rather than a movie or prizes like they used to get. While I'm the first to give them credit for an error-free show (at least as far as I know), I'm holding them at neutral until there is or isn't a booze delivery tonight: that alone will determine their fate. Update: some booze did arrive, so it's ups all the way even though there wasn't enough and no fights erupted, again.

Paired with Dominic
He was this close to hitching a ride back to Hoboken until Jeff came down on him hard Saturday night, and now he seems to be sitting cozy - go figure. That's good for him and nice for me if he keeps promoting my site, but the others are very wrong: I am not paying him to do so! I can barely afford toast as it is and anyway, I didn't know him from Adam before the premiere.

Paired with Rachel
We're well past the sell-by date for his act and I really don't like the fact that we're stuck with him again. His fights with Rachel are so ridiculous: he starts each one with 'I don't want to fight but..' and the only apology he knows is 'I'm sorry but..' If he'd learn to STFU once in awhile maybe he'd be tolerable, but at this rate he'll be on Hamsterwatch ignore soon.

Paired with Shelly
She started off okay and had Dominic in her pocket, but Shelly befriended her so well that when they were both nominated, Cassi just laid down and died. She complained a lot, failed to fulfill her catfight potential, and was the third model in a row to be booted out second. She had the best Mirror-Face since BB5/7 Jase.

Paired with Dick
She thought she was running everything in there but now she's Public Enemy #1 and she's found out she only has Dominic in her pocket. Thanks to so much double-dipping with the vets and the noobs, and her premature push to backdoor Jeff, it looks like Dominic will be going instead, just to clip her wings. I'm beyond disappointed she didn't have more than a hissyfit when a fight was called for, but that's how they are, and that's why she's stuck at neutral.

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
It's possible he'll be the first truly shocked face this season when Julie calls his name, and that's always fun. He'll be able to blame Daniele for it as he's her pawn in the true sense of the word, and he will suffer the fate those little insignificant pieces do when they get between their queen and her enemies.

Paired with Jordan
If I'd done Saturday ratings, he'd have been negative for his very overblown and nasty confrontation with Adam, which was uncalled for and out of character for the Jeff we've come to know on all these CBS shows. But he redeemed himself back to neutral Sunday for parannoying about Daniele time and again (even though he didn't confront her), and for popping a few random funnies like the old fun Jeff. He needn't have been so worried about Daniele's Operation Backdoor Jeff anyway - Julie would have just revived him and sent him back in.

Paired with Jeff
She keeps being told by the other HB4 not to talk game to anyone else, but that's all she does with Shelly. It's almost comical how easily Shelly plants seeds with her, it's endearing how much Jordan spills without even realizing it, and it's fascinating to watch what Shelly does with it.

Paired with Lawon
I'm pretty much done with her but she was funny when she flipped out Sunday and asked people to guarantee her their vote: apparently she was under the impression that she and Lawon would be going up at the veto meeting? Talk about being out of the loop.

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've never really had a favorite hamster before - it's nice! I can give him ups just because I like him.

Paired with Keith

Paired with Brendon
I'm as tired of her as I am of Brendon, but she finally told him to clam it Sunday night after yet another round in their ridiculous series of spats so she's upgraded to neutral. It's their own business if they want to play this everlasting bickering power struggle game, but why do we have to be keep being subjected to it? If she doesn't like him running her HOH, her game, or her life, she shouldn't have turned them all over to him. But she did and now we have to suffer for it.

Paired with Cassi
A week ago I said here that I thought she could almost take on Dr. Will and now I'm sure of it. I'm pretty sure every turn of events these last few days were her doing but she's incredibly sly and smooth about it, and nobody seems to be on to her except possibly Kalia. Actually Kalia can't be really on to her since Kalia's not aware of anything going on in there, but Kalia doesn't like Shelly and is starting to badmouth her.. maybe it's a sixth sense sort of thing.

News & updates

If you still don't have the feeds, this week would be a good time to get a SuperPass free trial - there's a very good chance of an endurance comp on Thursday, and Daniele won't be letting go

Cassi's farewells and Julie's Q&A didn't divulge any information that would taint her game in the event of a revival, and neither she nor Keith have surfaced, so it's almost a certainty that they've been sequestered for possible future Revive-a-Hamster twistage. There were some vague whisperings about Diary pushing for Jeff to be backdoored this week but since that isn't likely to happen, they might just spring Cassi & Keith like they did Annie & Monet last year. Or not - time will tell.

Those editors are tricky but watch David Hasselhoff's behavior carefully on Sunday's show. The hamsters agreed that he seemed to be "on something" and just hours after he left the habitat, his girlfriend called hotel security during a heated argument at the Wynn Las Vegas, where he was having a 59th birthday bash.
