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 did not use the 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 says 'bla bla blah'



Big Brother 13 at iTunesicon
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.

Watch Big Brother 13 on SuperPass!

Still no blood (Tuesday)

Defying my prediction, Dominic actually carried out his threat, kind of.. he met with Jeff & Brendon and did some quick dancing, lying his ass off about what he did and didn't know about Operation Backdoor Jeff and about Daniele in general.. none of them mentioned her name for the longest time but they finally did, so Dominic can't come back later now and argue he was referring to Shelly or Cassi or anyone else, as was once semi-planned.. it all got a little heated but not very, and once again nothing was really accomplished - except Rachel said afterwards she might want to keep Dominic now.. flashback 3.37pm for all that.. a few hours later Daniele finally got around to asking Dominic "What were you guys fighting about?" and he lied some more, not admitting the subject was her

Meanwhile Kalia confronted Jordan about how/why their friendship had changed.. Jordan deflected, like she does.. Kalia doesn't seem to realize how obvious Daniele's sudden glomming onto her is.. later Kalia asked Shelly point blank if she was the other vote for Porsche.. Shelly said she was, reminded Kalia that she'd lied to Shelly about that before, and within a few minutes Kalia was eating out of Shelly's hand, getting the kind of support, advice and common sense she's so good at handing out

Elsewhere around the habitat, Lawon's been one of the busiest ones in there, talking game with Daniele & Dominic until dawn and back at it with Brendon before noon - don't underestimate him just yet.. Shelly checks in with Brendon every morning but I'm not sure what they cover - I'm guessing she tells him whatever he wants (or needs) to hear, like she does with all of them

Showtime brought happy chat aside from Daniele, who was gloomy - she had some wine and beer but nothing happened, again.. whispers and click-talking carried on through the night, plus this random pillow-stuffing event.. Brendon, Jeff & Jordan did a study calendar with jelly beans but it didn't last long - Rachel came in and corrected them on a few items, which irritated Brendon.. Jeff & Jordan and Daniele & Dominic each did their weird adolescent puppy love routines for awhile

Wednesday they'll probably all rehash everything yet again - Thursday can't come fast enough.. something to tide you over if you missed it: flashback 7/26 2.54am F3 - Rachel put an end to sex in a hurry by jamming Brendon's scabby knees


Finally they fight (Monday)

Daniele left it until just before the veto meeting, but she finally confronted Brendon about everything that's been simmering all day yesterday and last night since she caught on to the HB4 (Has-Beens Four) planning to dump Dominic to clip her wings, as she'd been trying to get Rachel & Brendon to push Jeff out the backdoor.. there were some good lines flung back and forth, with her getting loud and Brendon getting sputtery.. Rachel sat mostly silent - flashback 7/25 10.52am to relive it.. ridiculously, the feedmasters did not have a camera on Daniele for any of it, other than this distant angle

Meanwhile, Jeff and Dominic got into it a little in the backyard, all parties involved did a few re-tells, and then the trivia took them all away to their meeting.. Brendon did not use the veto.. Jeff confronted Dominic again, about where the plan to backdoor him came from and Dominic played dumb - flashback 1.06pm for that one... Brendon lectured Porsche and Adam about how great he is at playing Big Brother and ran the list of how stupid the others are - Rachel remained mostly silent again

Several of them threatened a house meeting but it has yet to happen.. Daniele spent most of the day laying around with Dominic, silently click-talking.. she got up once to ask Shelly if she was behind Operation Backdoor Jeff, that she'd heard that - Shelly said no, and then reported to Brendon and to Jorff, and said Daniele's nuts.. Daniele also worked on Kalia a bit - she may become her next victim/casualty.. Rachel took a tumble while running the yard with Porsche, but she made a nice save with Jeff's help and ran off again right away


Anticlimax, twice

They put on a skit for Showtime, which is unusual for this bunch.. they billed it as The Dating Game but it was something different - they didn't get it either, until Shelly stepped in and figured it out for them

It was pretty low-key and pretty bad all around but Lawon as emcee was perfect, flubbed lines and all, and at least he dressed the part, complete with an eggbeater mic.. I guess I should be grateful the rest of them made a slight effort to be fun even if it wasn't very.. flashback 10.00pm to judge for yourself

The long awaited and very much anticipated Meeting of the HB4 + Daniele finally began at 11.45pm.. it started out promising, Daniele asking Rachel "Why are you looking at me like that?" as they awaited the others, but it quickly deflated.. Brendon started off pontificating, like he does, and nearly put everyone to sleep

Jeff cut to the chase by asking Daniele where she stood and the two of them ran their loops about Dominic and where the whole Operation Backdoor Jeff really came from.. once again Rachel remained mostly silent but on camera, while Daniele was mostly long shots.. it went on a long time but went nowhere, voices were not raised, and they parted with a round robin hug (and all the HB4 said separately afterward they still don't trust Daniele)

However, downstairs the newbies gathered in the backyard, knowing full well they were being shunned, and they quickly moved to light chatty subjects after some laughs about how much they all suck at Big Brother.. I found that especially interesting as that's where Jeff & Jordan stood for the first half of BB11, being funny as they complained about the other Athletes & friends dominating the game, and acting like they are acting this year - well, the way Jeff's acting this year.. Jordan's the same, other than missing her "gucci"

Things that make you go hmm.. also, both groups broke up at exactly the same moment - go figure


Ratings - Fizzled Again edition

Ratings are yesterday's, based on entertainment value, but they can stand. I need to rest up for Rachel Ratings tomorrow - another blog is due!

No cameras on Daniele for two - count 'em TWO Daniele-centric confrontation convos in the same day? Really? Not to mention the still-strobing fishies, palms and/or control room all the time, and blocking things like conversation about the Gideons and their Bibles for no reason. Hey, I didn't sign a waiver either but they keep talking about me.. oh wait, that's a good thing. Nevermind.
PS I am not paying Adam, I don't know Adam, and I never heard of Adam until BB13 started. Don't believe everything you hear on the feeds.

Paired with Dominic
He's still on the block but he's got a comfy seat there, at least as of now. He's starting to learn his role, which is comic relief and all-around nice guy, superfan but not mastermind. But he needs to learn to keep quiet during intense game convos as he always looks and sounds guilty even when he isn't.

Paired with Rachel
Sunday night's sex event was even more distasteful than usual since he barely finished telling off Rachel before she did him and got nothing for herself. But that's between the two of them, as is their whole loopy relationship. It's his grandiose (and often faulty) lecturing everyone about the game and everyone in it and his sheer sense of entitlement that make me want to slap him. Put a sock in it, bub.

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 kind of earned ups for her morning confrontation with Brendon, especially since voices were raised and words like 'stupid' were tossed around a lot. But she had no camera on her so she's neutralized by default - blame Production. Also she failed to react properly for the midnight meeting, but I do have to give her credit for telling them she never talks game in her overnight chats and 'I swear on my life I've never talked game to Lawon' with a straight face.

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
He's threatening to tell Rachel & Brendon tomorrow that Shelly's in with Jeff & Jordan, but he talks big a lot and he never follows through. He also spills a lot of secrets all the time, and doesn't realize 'don't tell anyone I told you this' doesn't mean squat in there. And he needs to learn Porsche's name is two syllables, not one. Stick a fork in him, he's done.

Paired with Jordan
He failed to escalate his two run-ins with Dominic to proper levels but at least he tried. He also cut off Brendon's incessant yapping and called the Meeting to order with 'So where are you at, Daniele?' But most of all, he had some great one-liners in all three events, and that's what we need from him. He has been acting like he complained Russell, Jessie, etc were during BB11 before he was given the Coup de Jeff and it all turned around: it'll be interesting if he flip-flops back to a losing streak this season.

Paired with Jeff
She didn't participate much in any of the day's major events, even though she's a card-carrying member of the HB4 and so technically she was at the center of them. I shouldn't even mention again how the BB11 winner's ears were sore & green from cheap/fake earrings because I took a beating on Twitter for that one - hey, she said it! Some folks totally lose their sense of humor when it comes to BB. On the plus side, I didn't hear any gross-out TMI stories from her today.

Paired with Lawon
She's another one who doesn't know when it's time to lay low: all she keeps doing is reminding them all she's there and waiting her turn to shake hands with Julie. She's been mouthing off about most of them, including telling Dominic & Lawon 'if I open that door, I'm socking her' when they wondered if Shelly was eavesdropping (she wasn't - she doesn't need to), and then being all sweet to Shelly a few minutes later. Those concerned about how much she eats might start urging her to have seconds now, since Brendon said she & Lawon have to go because "they eat all our food".

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
Ruffles, an eggbeater and a 'fro: need I say more? Not to mention his expressions of stifled shock when Brendon, on yet another power-trip, pointlessly threatened him with re-noms this morning. Lawon's on a lot of hit lists but there are many others in line ahead of him and that's good. He does all his gaming on the sly, late at night, usually with those who say they don't trust him at all yet they keep spilling secrets to him.

Paired with Keith
Like, who?

Paired with Brendon
She was uncharacteristically silent for today's shenanigans which is very different, but see Brendon: if he's beaten her down enough that she's turned her game 100% over to him, that's between them. Despite sitting out the fights, let alone escalating them like she usually does, she earns very easy ups for jabbing Brendon in his owie knees when they were about ready to do the slurpydurp tonight, causing him to wail in pain and turn away from her.

Paired with Cassi
Even though they're catching on to her, I think most of it's more suspicion than actual knowledge and she still owns them all. Even if not, they all have bigger fish to fry, namely the HB4+Daniele. She had the Ultimate Line of the Day today with 'I know my role' and she does.. if only the rest of them did.

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.
