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


Kalia is Head of Household
Rachel & Jeff are nominated
Jeff won veto
Jeff, Jordan, Rachel, Shelly are Have-not
Adam's elf is over


Take a swig whenever someone says 'literally' - yes it's a rerun, but a worthy one



Big Brother 13 at iTunesicon
Season Pass or individual episodes

They called 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.

How convenient (Saturday)

Right on cue, Jeff won the veto in something involving balls.. Shelly, Adam and Jordan also played

Rachel seemed to be taking it well: she was dejected at first but hasn't thrown a tantrum (yet?).. she made a calm, level-headed pitch to Kalia about how she'll have a new enemy if Rachel is evicted only to come back in, and she sat around goofing with Jeff & Jordan for a long time.. Kalia looked worried more often than not, but her loops carried on and they usually include the fact that she has a "never put you up" pinky swear with Jordan.. Adam could be her replacement, but veto meeting is two days away


Calm after the storms

They finally got outside for awhile until a party nearby (with music) caused them to be locked in again/still.. Adam had enough time to break in the grill: it's a brand new one, and I don't know if it carries the indomitable spirit of the legendary Metal Monster within, eager for blood and/or first degree pinky burns, or if it's just a rookie with no fight in it - time will tell.. contrary to Adam's many announcements about this site's BBQ Smackdown feature, today's grilling was uneventful, and thus did not qualify as a scoreboard match

Adam & Porsche spent ages making homemade Mounds & Almond Joys with some of the coconuts, including some for the Have-nots using chocolate protein drinks for the coating.. Jeff grilled up some catfish but Jordan didn't think much of it - she & Shelly still aren't eating much.. Rachel laid under a blanket in the purple lounge, looking sad and looking around, and feigning sleep when called to dinner.. many of them slept much of the day away, which happens every season and usually before now.. Lawon woke up announcing how horny he was, which seemed to disgust some feedsters a lot more than Jordan's everlasting period & poop stories - go figure

Adam's 40th birthday arrived at midnight with toasts, silliness, and a game of homemade Twister.. Jeff & Jordan finally met with Kalia just after Showtime to patch things up: Jordan apologized, Jeff talked tough again, Kalia reiterated that she'll never put up Jordan, and not much else was accomplished.. Jeff wrapped up a baggie of "scabs" (leftover bits of meat) in a coconut shell as a birthday gift.. Adam grilled again and the five Haves sat down to family dinner at 2.30am while the four Have-nots chatted outside


End of an elf (Friday)

Adam's suit came off with a ceremony - flashback 8/5 11.43am.. they all spoke up about what they liked about his elf, and then he was back to himself

The trivia took them away to a very long food comp, apparently involving cocktails made of good & gross foods designed by each other, and they had to drink them all and/or identify the ingredients.. feeds came back to Jordan crying - a rare occurrence - and Jeff consoling and peptalking her

Jeff, Jordan, Rachel and Shelly lost and are Have-nots.. they got catfish and coconuts as their supplement and as usual, it left a huge mess that wasted a lot of food and required a lot of cleanup.. tension is mounting between all the females in various combinations, like it does

Oh, and they got the grill


Fireworks before and after noms

Kalia held some meetings, including one with Jeff & Jordan where she told them she wants to put up Jeff with Rachel since she needs a strong veto player to get Rachel out.. both argued that was faulty logic, that others could go up against her and make it certain.. Jordan got snippy and said they already knew Kalia was going to do that, that she was in a bad mood, and walked out.. Jeff stayed and got fired up, saying Kalia hadn't been his target before but now she is, and if he's evicted & comes back, he'll be gunning for her - flashback 8/5 5.07pm

When he left, Kalia was deep in thought and looked worried.. Diary left her no time to think about it or consult with Daniele: they called her into Diary right away and the trivia took them away again for noms

Rachel & Jeff were nominated, and feeds came back to Rachel in tears again, she can never win the $500k, she'll be nominated every week, Kalia said mean things to her at noms, and she wants to leave.. Jordan tried to talk her down, to the point of yelling at her.. Shelly told Rachel to go sort it out with Kalia, but Jordan shouted "No!" which surprised Jeff

Upstairs, Kalia & Daniele were watching it all on spyscreen and hearing the shouts come up the stairs.. Kalia asked "What did I say that was mean?" so hopefully if the "catty" comment was used at noms, CBS will show it Sunday.. next thing you know, Kalia broke into uncontrollable sobs, and Daniele peptalked her

It just kept going from there: Jeff & Shelly had a falling out but patched it up with a pinky swear, Rachel & Kalia made it up but not really, and so on and so on.. I can't even try to recap this clusterflock of a day - I'm going back to the stuff I find fun about BB, and playing my BB drinking game


Ratings - Clusterflock and Fallout edition

Ratings are based on entertainment value. As tired, stressed and in need of a day off as I am, this is the only game in town where I can tweet "they wrapped the baggie of scabs inside a coconut" and a few thousand people will understand what it means.

Ups for bringing in the grill: the only revival I'm always 100% behind. Between an extra-long food comp and extra-long noms on Friday, we had an awful lot of trivia & palms but the fireworks between them made up for it. Saturday we had the great camera person during the day, the one who actually moves around to follow hamsters and gives us nice creative shots, but by Saturday night the hasty moron was back on the palms button, blocking things like song and movie titles (legal) and singing 'For He's a Jolly Good Fellow' (not only legal but expressly approved for use, as demonstrated at the trashbag wedding and birthdays past). They really need to train that guy better, and they need to come down harder on repeat offenders in the habitat. On the other hand, I remain shocked but pleased that they rarely cut off Adam's mentions of me and this site.. it's weird.

Paired with Dominic - GOLDEN KEY
Won: One week elf suit
He kept saying his #1 wish was to spend his 40th birthday in there and now it's come to pass. He's not quite the same without his elf but he's a good guy and gives us the comedy we so desperately need with all these backstabby hamsters. I'm glad he told viewers about BBQ Smackdown again, but his grilling premiere and its 2am follow-up went smoothly so I'm sorry, but he's not on the scoreboard yet. (The scoreboard isn't even up yet.) He also cost me a cap of the grill on its own by bursting into a Homer Simpson song as he walked away from it, leading to palms.

Paired with Rachel
Won: nothing
His return was unwelcome, especially now that he's had a year to suck the life and Vegas out of Rachel. This time he wore superhero suits, used not-funny voices, lost a toy turtle, lectured everyone, and had big goofy smiles for Big Booty & Porsche's striptease. He had a pathetic sense of entitlement and made a giant stink about Rachel calling him Buki.

Paired with Shelly
Won: nothing
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
She's laying low since her minion Kalia got herself in a tight spot, and she was barely present for Friday's escapades nor did she help patch them up on Saturday. She might feel bad about making Dominic get evicted, but Kalia won't be far behind him at this rate. Hey, maybe that's her strategy! She made dismal faces as the designated Twister spinner and she boo'd Porsche's birthday toast to me, all of which adds up to no fun at all.

Paired with Daniele
Won: nothing
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
Won: nothing
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
Kudos for winning the veto when he had to, but isn't that how it always works? He's been using his tough guy routine a lot lately but it's all talk: after shouting down Kalia that she hadn't been his target and now she is, he told Jordan (and possibly Rachel or Shelly, I forget) that she really isn't. But Kalia doesn't know that and he's got her nervousing in a big way. Like Brendon & Rachel, he & Jordan also seem like they feel entitled to stay and win, but Jeff's one-liners have never been better and that counts for more.

Paired with Jeff
She was great standing up to and walking out on Kalia Friday, and even better 'leashing' Rachel and peptalking her for two days straight, even as she was going nuts from it. It was sad to see her break down Friday after the food comp but it sure revved her up! Porsche finally said something to someone about Jordan having already won BB, and it's about time somebody acknowledged that elephant in the room.

Paired with Lawon
It's rare someone gets ups here who I never listen to, but I can get her gist after 1-2 minutes, and then I just watch her expressions on mute. She's got herself stuck with no good choices for re-nom but Adam or Porsche, and Adam's getting tired of being everyone's pawn. If she was really smart, really playing her own game, and really ready to make the 'big moves' she advertises, she'd put up Daniele and get her out before Dani takes them all to the $500k cleaners, but that won't happen. Whatever does happen, Kalia's current sticky situation is great fun on top of her HOH powertrip, and she'll be a mess by Thursday. Then comes the long fall from queen to citizen.

Paired with Porsche
Won: nothing
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
He continues to lay low during the day and come alive overnight, and that's fine with me as those are my hours too. I loved his line about there being no rulebook declaring a specific strategy be used in BB! His is as valid as anyone's and obviously working so far, since he's still there and not in jeopardy. He had a nice chat with Porsche late Friday night where they exchanged life stories (a bit late for that?) that might come in handy for either if they have one of those 'how well do you know each other?' comps down the road, and he was easily the star of Twister.

Paired with Keith - GOLDEN KEY
She helped Adam make coconut candybars and she's buddying up with both Lawon and Daniele lately, but I still can't follow what she says after the first four or five 'likes' and 'you knows'. I hope she gets HOH some week so I can do Porsche Ratings here. You know, like all one big run-on sentence that like rambles and doesn't really like go anywhere and ending like you know, with a question?

Paired with Brendon
Hamster gold. She's run the full gamut of emotions in the last 48 hours but when the dust settled, so did she. I've always wanted to see Rachel on her own and so far she's not bad. She had a perfect post-veto meeting with Kalia that really got Kalia thinking, and she did it with cool logic and without crying. Sitting alone through the Have-nots dinner was odd, and even odder when she feigned sleep to avoid joining, but she's joining some group convos without being obnoxious and she didn't cause any scenes all day Saturday. I expect she'll have one, maybe two more tantrums before Thursday, and she'll probably never correlate that kind of behavior with being bashed out here or evicted in there. She'll also never connect the dots between her constantly boasting about being a competitor with her constant resentment about being a target, but that's our Rachel.

Paired with Cassi - GOLDEN KEY
I don't know if she could be any more blatant about what she's up to than she is, but she continues to get away with it. She's got everyone's ear and she repeats just the right things to just the right people to get them all stirred up and fighting each other, while she sweeps up behind them. I'm a little concerned that she isn't eating enough, but she still has more energy than all the rest of them put together. Her words of wisdom to Rachel Saturday morning may have fallen on deaf ears but give her time: if Rachel sticks or comes back, she might actually start to listen to Shelly's oh-so-wise words of advice and learn a thing or two about herself.

Thursday's live show remained in first place with 7.3 million viewers, 4.6 rating and 7 share, ahead of 'Expedition Impossible' on ABC with 4.8/2.9/5, 'Glee' rerun on FOX with 2.9/1.9/3, and 'The Office' and '30 Rock' reruns on NBC with 2.4/1.6/3 and 2.05/1.4/2 respectively.

News & updates

Revive-a-Hamster is on! The winner of the viewer poll of the four evictees to date will compete with next week's evictee to go back in. Hamsterwatch strongly encourages you DO NOT VOTE in order to send a message that we're sick of their Has-beens twists.

Considering the revival, it was unusual they aired Kalia's scathing farewell to Brendon, since none of the others heard anything negative in their farewells.

Normally we'd be at jury now with nine left (seven jurors plus two finalists), but next week we'll subtract one and add one, leaving us with the final guaranteed jury (and six weeks extra pay for them.)

If you still don't have the feeds, try a SuperPass free trial for this week! It could get good with Rachel on her own and a 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!

Shelly to Rachel:
Brendon's a human being, he's not Superman - you really need to get real on that
As long as I'm still learning, it's good - I'm still on this side of the dirt
Don't ever let your spouse complete you - they should enhance you

Jordan: I know we can do it, we did it last time
Jeff: We can do it, love
Jordan: It's almost like it's just me, you and Rachel

Shelly to Kalia: You have to be careful with Porsche, she will twist the story to be what she wants it to be

Jordan to Kalia: There's a lot of people in here that are dead weight, that if they come back, who cares?

Jeff to Kalia: Good luck to you in this game, and I'll see you at veto

Rachel: I've been playing a good social game

Jordan: I've been very vocal - normally I'm very quiet

Shelly: People love that drama!

Rachel: I wish I could just be a floater and just float through this game, and not have all this drama
