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 & Jordan are nominated
Brendon, Lawon, Jordan are Have-not
Adam's in elf suit 1 week


Take a swig whenever Brendon lectures someone - take two if it's Rachel



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.

Listening in

It's always fun when one of them is caught eavesdropping - caught by us, that is.. this time it was Kalia listening in on Shelly & Porsche in the purple room.. they'd been talking about how Kalia is "much better than she was before" but Kalia probably heard that as "she was awful" and will likely translate that to "she is awful"

After that, Shelly & Porsche did a vague safety agreement handshake that may or may not be binding - I don't know if Kalia still had her ear to the door or not.. Porsche was excited for her first handshake of the season and said it was as fun as being able to turn her key the first week

Trashbag wedding is due tonight.. Shelly spent some time making a trashbag & tinfoil tuxedo and matching boutonnière, and Rachel worked on a garter made out of something that looked like an Ace bandage.. she also wrote some rhyming BB-related vows - actually Shelly wrote most of them, but let Rachel think she thought of them because how she rolls (and it's a very good way to roll in that place)


Til Julie do us part (in two days)

Trashbag wedding preparations and primping didn't take nearly as long as they do on Thursdays.. Rachel looked like a bride despite the trashbag dress, and despite the fortune teller trying hard to make a "create a caption" game of it with her.. Brendon saw her as she was getting ready and we all know what that means

The wedding came off as planned - flashback 8/2 10.36pm.. Rachel's dress and Brendon's tux were extraordinary for trashbags and tinfoil, and everyone else dressed up too: Jeff & Jordan wore their best for best man and bridesmaid, Adam was the elven ring bearer, Kalia the flower girl, Daniele (in white) the bubble girl, Porsche as maid of honor, Shelly as guest/coach/script girl, and Lawon officiating in the HOH robe with extreme flair

It was a great time and quite the show: Rachel's vows were cute (thanks to Shelly) and Brendon's were sappy.. Rachel chided him at one point to be funny, and he'll need a Diary voiceover to change ABC to CBS if they run that part on the show.. it's awfully hard to steal the spotlight from the now mock-married entity that is Brenchel, but Lawon did - I'm glad prime timers finally got to see him in action

Jordan caught the bouquet and Jeff caught the garter, as you'd expect.. the booze started flowing including a bottle of champagne, but Brendon as a Have-not wasn't allowed any.. Adam gave this site his daily shout-out, and they all boo'd


Ratings - Bikini Hour Trashbag Wedding edition

Note I made the caps earlier today, but some of you won't mind some extra bikini pics.
Ratings are based on entertainment value, and tonight it's ups all around (per Adam's prediction) for the trashbag wedding thanks to everyone's participation and good spirits. It's far too rare we get much more than whispering and fight-less tension, let alone any kind of fun activity that requires the kind of preparation this one did. Good job by all, and thanks for a fun evening!

I'm glad they let the wedding happen according to plan and they didn't block it from the feeds to save for CBS. Maybe they're catching on that nearly all feedsters watch the CBS show anyway, even when we know what's going to happen on it. Julie was fun on 'The Late Show' (see Links of the Day below) but her reading of the Top Ten list was about as actory as our hamsters' Diaries. She got some boos for #2 so I figure I'm in good company tonight.

Paired with Dominic - GOLDEN KEY
Won: One week elf suit
Ring bearer. He was deadly serious when he rehearsed and it paid off. Bonus extra credit (and gratitude) for mentioning this site during the toast! Once again, I am not paying him and I do not know him from Adam - he's just a loyal Hamsterwatcher who's made it big.. kinda.

Paired with Rachel
Groom. Despite today's drinking game and the fact that he's worn out his welcome for the second year in a row, he did well during his wedding even if his vows were dull and he mentioned ABC in them. Never fear, by tomorrow I'll probably have him back on near-ignore for his next to last day in there.

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
Bubbles. It takes guts to wear a white dress to her rival's wedding, and to fling her bubbles around through the whole thing like a little kid at the park. Well done!

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
Best man. He scoffed the idea the last few days but he got into it this afternoon, dressed up sharp, and played his role well. The fact that he caught the garter after Jordan caught the bouquet is between the two of them, but they'll probably hear about it a lot.

Paired with Jeff
Bridesmaid. She participated in making the dress and decorations with Shelly & Porsche and they did an outstanding job considering what they had to work with. See Jeff regarding the bouquet.

Paired with Lawon
Flower girl. For all her talking the rest of the time, she was appropriately solemn and quiet when she was supposed to be.

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
Official. Shelly tried to coach him during the ceremony but it wasn't necessary: he's been writing and rehearsing for two days, and he pulled out all the stops for the main event. Style deluxe.

Paired with Keith - GOLDEN KEY
Maid of honor. She put in her time and expertise in preparations and deserves credit for that as everything turned out so well. I feel for those in her future that she'll try to describe this wedding to, or this entire summer for that matter. In other words, I'm still in the market for a Porsche Translator Ring.

Paired with Brendon
Bride. Scoff all you want but she's been a great sport about her 'trashy wedding' and she made a lovely bride. She didn't participate a lot in preparations but she enjoyed being the center of attention, like she does, and after all, that's how it should be at a wedding, trashy or not.

Paired with Cassi - GOLDEN KEY
Planner, dressmaker, tailor, writer, set decorator, guest. She deserves nearly all the credit for putting this thing together, designing and making most of the trashbag apparel, and for writing the vast majority of Rachel's vows. She may use this kind of thing to her advantage later but for now, it's really refreshing to have a hamster around who does so much (all the time) without demanding constant attention or kudos for it.

News & updates

From the Oh Really? Department: Kalia told Daniele that Dr. Will's brother is one of her "good friends, like best friends" - flashback 7/20 3:04.40am F1 (Big ups to @smellykelley, @zzziiinnnggg, @LunaCee73 for digging up this one)

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 could get good with Brendon & Rachel's 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!
