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


Daniele is Head of Household
Brendon used veto on Rachel
Brendon & Jordan are nominated
Brendon, Lawon, Jordan are Have-not
Adam's in elf suit 1 week


Take a swig whenever Kalia stops talking (it's time we all dry out a bit)



Big Brother 13 at iTunesicon
Season Pass or individual episodes

They're calling Adam's elf 'Cruddy'.

Brendon's knees got messed up from the food comp with the ant costumes.

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 were pairs-based until there were 10 left.

The evictee's surviving partner got one of four Golden Keys, meaning they couldn't be nominated or play for HOH until there were 10 left.

Dick left mysteriously, 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 BB veterans might get more.

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.

Slurpydurp interruptus (Monday)

If you've kept up here, you weren't surprised that Brendon veto'd Rachel off the block and Daniele pawned Jordan in her place.. Brendon patted himself on the back afterward for blindsiding Daniele but he didn't - she was prepared for it.. he also paused his & Rachel's teary sniffling to count up her past comp wins and urge her on

This is good news especially for overnighters who won't ever have to see or hear Brendon & Rachel doing their slurpydurp and worse, since he has to share the Have-not room through Thursday's show and she'll probably remain glued next to him.. also, we've never seen Rachel on her own in there - she might get her Vegas back - but be prepared for the worst, Hamsterwatchers: a possible revolving door revival

They all went into feeding frenzy mode after the meeting, like they do.. Daniele told Lawon that Brendon & Rachel had tried to "cop a deal" with her to put him up & out, and urged him to win HOH on Thursday


Trashbag wedding dancers

It took all day to prepare and just minutes to play out, but it was great fun: Lawon choreographed and played a beat while Porsche did a striptease for Brendon, from comp milkman uniform down to sexy swimsuit, and Adam stripped for Rachel, from elf suit down to skivvies

The crowd loved it of course, as did the recipients: Brendon had a bigger smile than he does playing CLAP CLAP BANG BANG POW POW aka Big Booty.. flashback 8/1 10.59pm to see the show.. unfortunately Showtime missed most of it - you guys need the feeds! Adam topped it off by doing a cannonball into the pool, and they got a second booze delivery

Otherwise it was another day of buzz buzz, with Jordan parannoying a bit even with her many assurances of safety, and Rachel & Brendon alternately campaigning and freaking out with each other.. as always, they're convinced nobody else in there has any right to be there, but Brendon stepped over the line when he said BB12 Britney's house fire was a result of karma because she was mean to him.. Porsche came out of the background in more ways than one: she's gaming loud and hard, all over the habitat


Rise and shine (Sunday)

Shelly & Brendon tend to get up early, but most of them roll out of bed around the crack o' noon, including Porsche today.. Shelly had been hard at work before that, getting Brendon all riled up about Kalia, his father, and getting Rachel riled up about Cassi's modeling, and getting both of them riled up about BB in general and how only "competitors" should matter

It rained at the habitat today, which we hardly ever see other than BB9 which was the winter/spring version - Brendon made a trashbag shirt to frolic in it.. the rain caused some leftover comp snow to fall in lazy flurries from the roof and/or awnings.. talk of a Brendon/Rachel mock wedding complete with trashbag wedding dress has continued - maybe it will happen before one of them leaves, unlike the forgotten Franklin trial

Daniele met with Jeff & Jordan about re-noms, saying she doesn't want to put up Jordan but might have to as a pawn - Jordan said she wouldn't mind (she wouldn't have the survivor mad about her vote that way).. they also talked about Brendon possibly planning to take off Rachel and only telling everyone he'll take himself off (which Brendon has told Rachel he'll do, which explains her recent calm).. they also said Porsche might be a safer pawn, as did Adam when he met with Daniele


Trashbag wedding

Plans for Rachel & Brendon's mock wedding actually developed into something.. they've got a schedule for it with the actual wedding a day or two away with Lawon officiating, bachelor/ette parties along the way, but tonight they designed and made Rachel's dress

It wasn't the first time trashbags have been used for hamster attire (remember the designer pants Lydia made for Natalie?) but it was a stylish project just the same.. Shelly & Jordan did most of the work this time, with Porsche and later Kalia pitching in.. the dress has a long train, tinfoil accents, glittery bling of course, a comp crown tiara with veil, with very stylish trashbag & foil roses for her bouquet and/or decorations

The guys watched from afar, trying to stay uninvolved.. Daniele wasn't around, possibly sleeping.. Rachel was a great sport through it all, being pleasant and fun, and joking about her "trashy wedding".. I've always enjoyed arts & crafts project nights in there - this was one of the better ones, and I'm really glad they actually did something besides lay around and repeat themselves

Brendon & Rachel met with Daniele, making an actory-voiced pitch about cutting a deal and Brendon staying, but their whisper afterward implied he's still planning to use his veto on Rachel and apparently they're hoping to catch Daniele offguard tomorrow.. Daniele's face remained blank for most of it.. she sighed and slipped into her bathtub with a beer after they left


Ratings - Best Face Forward edition

Ratings are Sunday's with slight upgrades for Monday, based on entertainment value

Monday: If they don't use the Jeff/Jordan convo after she was nominated where he let out a loud fart and they both just kept going, I'll lose all hope in them.
Sunday: You know they've jumped the shark when they start narrating entire episodes with things like 'under the bus' and 'BFFs', and got Rachel to utter her dreaded 'me and MY man' again. I don't know who would even watch the CBS show on its own. It has to be the only TV show that's 80% adults laying around whispering in bed and 20% silly comps in silly costumes. But they didn't exaggerate the endurance times for a change so maybe there's hope. I like how they pretend to go for continuity in Diary (and fail) but they aired a Lawon convo from the first week like it took place yesterday. They haven't even bothered to change the phase of the moon in those time-pass segues all season. Faux pas of the day was the over-eager guy on the fishies/control room/palms button once again: tonight they actually blocked feeds chatter about whether 'Big Brother' was on CBS tonight or not. No, they really did. But all things considered, they are at least trying to turn this debacle of boredom into something to put on TV and that tickles me.

Paired with Dominic - GOLDEN KEY
Won: One week elf suit
Monday: Ups remain in place for his good humor and bad taste for his part in the strip show, and his ongoing embracing of his inner elf.
Sunday: Spontaneous elf dancing continues for no reason and that's good enough for me, along with his corny elf jokes. If it was anybody else I'd be groaning, but he gets away with it. I wasn't so sure about his overnight 'Heavy Metal Elf Show' when it started, but then he made it about bands and not cutesy elf stuff, so that worked okay. I just hope BB didn't put him up to it in hopes of a 'Dick at Night' knock-off.

Paired with Rachel
Monday: His obnoxious speeches are getting worse, culiminating with his crack about Britney's house fire, all because she impersonated his neander-tall stomp and had the audacity to outlast him. In response to him saying today 'I'd rather be loyal and go down with my pride than go down being a manipulator' please refer to his tactics when it comes to his lady love: flashback 7/19 12.32pm - to use a favorite BB term, he has 'sealed his own fate' these two summers, and will forever be known as a total (and nasty) manipulator. He can't get gone soon enough.
Sunday: I have nothing nice to say, so I'll say nothing at all.

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 - GOLDEN KEY/TICKET
Monday: Ups were downgraded to neutral for getting loud and sippy but channeling it back to all game talk, all the time, and reduced to a solid negative when she went back to silent click-talking alone with Kalia in HOH room. Even though she did it hiding under a hoodie with zit cream polka-dots on her face.
Sunday: I'm still dead set against BB veterans sticking a minute more than they already have, but she's winning me over. A week ago she was Public Enemy #1, dead in the water, and now she seems to be in a pretty good spot. I'm not crazy about the company she keeps (Kalia), and I'm dreading her move downstairs and return to silent click-talking, but for now it's all good.

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 was the first casualty of Daniele's too hard/too fast strategy but he didn't help himself by not brushing up more on how BB works. He told a lot of pointless lies about his modeling, schooling, virginity and then fessed up to them, which might have come back to bite him anyway. His adolescent jokes and behavior did nothing for me.

Paired with Jordan
Won $10k
Monday: Ups are downgraded to neutral for dull.
Sunday: It doesn't take much for ups these days: he gets them for today's cracks about Porsche and for his goony greenlight banter, just like two years ago.

Paired with Jeff
Monday: Ups are downgraded to neutral for dull, other than when she put on Adam's elf hat and adopted a new personality for a minute.
Sunday: Ditto Jeff's ups for greenlight goony even if a lot of it was reruns from BB11. She's living on pickles and the way she eats them is making fellatio fans happy. I think she'll be sitting next to Brendon on Thursday, but don't hold me to it.

Paired with Lawon
Monday: No change
Sunday: See today's drinking game: everyone's sober and it's her fault.

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
Monday: Ups for participating in the show including choreography and cheerleading, especially when he's been feeling so lousy. He's content to stay quiet and let them think he's dumb until it's time to do otherwise, and all but Daniele seem to be falling for it.
Sunday: He pretty much just comes alive after midnight but he's been suffering lately: he's on slop but he won't eat slop, and he has to share a brightly lit bedroom with Rachel & Brendon, so cut him some slack for now. He'll rebound.

Paired with Keith - GOLDEN KEY
Monday: Ups for surprising everyone with her strip show and for her long involved game chat with Daniele later. She's turning into a world class double agent and seems to be getting away with it for now. I still need a translator for her but maybe that's just me.
Sunday: I need a translator for her, and it's not just because of that elbow/shoulder mixup.

Paired with Brendon
Monday: I should neutralize her for being so bitchy after the party they threw for her, but I'll let her ups ride for now - it's a long time til Thursday.
Sunday: After several days of droopy when we should be having one giant hissy-fit, she turned out to be a great sport with her trashbag wedding dress and self-proclaimed trashy wedding on the horizon. It's nice to give Rachel ups for being able to laugh with her instead of at her.

Paired with Cassi - GOLDEN KEY
Monday: No change, but she gets extra credit for saying she wants more glass cleaner when they got an unprecedented bonus second booze delivery. The way things turned out, Windex might have gotten us better results.
Sunday: Game-wise, she still owns them all. She listens to them, she tells them what they want to hear, and she does flawless damage control when they wonder if she's being 'sketchy'. Entertainment-wise, she's not all that, but she keeps the place tidy.

News & updates

Julie said she'll tell us next Thursday how we can "play a role in the next game-changing twist" which smells like a Revive-a-Hamster vote to me - they usually introduce polls on other days otherwise. So whoever goes this week might have the chance (and reality) of coming right back in again.

It's almost a certainty that Keith, Cassi & Dominic have been sequestered for possible future revival twistage.. we'll know soon enough.

If you still don't have the feeds, try a SuperPass free trial for this week! It should get good with Brendon & Rachel's trashbag wedding and subsequent forced breakup, and a possible revival coming. You can use Flashback to see anything/everything from BB13 and BB12, plus you can get $10 worth of free music every month!
