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 & Lawon are nominated
Jeff, Jordan, Rachel, Shelly are Have-not


Take a swig whenever someone says they have to win HOH this week



Big Brother 13 at iTunesicon
Season Pass or individual episodes

They called Adam's elf Cruddy and his beardless look Phillip.

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.

See 'n say cheese (Wednesday)

The camera came out and their poses ran the gamut from "Three's Company" to gangsta to this coconut bra plus pineapple - I'm pretty sure it's not gay.. Rachel started her campaigning and the waffling ran amok, like it does on a Wednesday.. much of it today is revolving around a suspected "pity vote" from Porsche

They had their halfway party behind trivia.. they had music, pizza, pasta, booze and a photo cake, just after some of them had prepared dinner.. apparently Porsche balked at the idea of sharing some of the leftovers with the crew, which set off Shelly & Jeff who were doing all the cleanup along with Jordan

Not much else happened of note, other than a late night waffle from Daniele & Kalia urging Shelly to boot Rachel based on various revival theories (including the right one).. they said booting Lawon would be a waste of an HOH and the week - yup, they got that one right, but a bit late.. it set Shelly to thinking but we'll just have to wait and see at this point.. it's been a very long week and I'm glad it's almost over


Shellyspeak (Tuesday)

As always when the feeds are slow, my mind wanders to come up with something to amuse myself.. as mentioned here yesterday, lately I've been translating Shelly's comments from what she says to what she (possibly) means.. it might annoy some of my Twitter and/or Facebook followers since I have trouble stopping once I get going with stuff like this, but for now it's getting positive feedback.. some examples:

"Having them on your side is not a bad thing" = They're on my side
to Kalia: "It's only gonna get crazier" = You can't hack it
to Kalia: "Hey, you'll get to do your typing thing soon" = We'll get an hour break from your constant talking & singing
"I'm either overthinking it, or I'm right" = I'm right
about Jorff: "They have a good way of dealing with being grumpy" = They come to me
"Is that your blanket?" = Why doesn't anyone pick up their crap?
"I'm pretty good [at BB] looking in from the outside - when I'm in the game I'm not so good" = I'm still better than all of you
"That's really mean, I don't normally say things like that" = Oops, I forgot to Shellyspeak
to Kalia: "Are you & Dani getting along? Good" = I'm on it: you won't for long
to the moth: "Relax dude, it's okay, I'm not gonna hurt you" = I only hunt big game


BBQ Smackdown Round 1: The Sizzler

It was a tentative start to the new season with the new grill, but the rookie-in-training finally made an aggressive move after several uneventful and disappointing outings

Rachel was grilling some Have-not catfish and had to call in the expert Adam for help.. it seems she was getting some sizzling and licking flames after spilling some catfishy juice, and then the grill reached out and grabbed a piece of her fish for itself.. it wasn't much, but it showed the new Weber's got some fight in it after all

Final score: BBQ ½, Adam ½, Rachel 0


We need a diagram

Elsewhere around the habitat, Kalia, Daniele and Porsche opened two bottles of wine around 4.30pm and downed them in no time.. they got very loud for awhile, and were passed out not long after.. Showtimers were spared much of their usual three hours of Kalia talking & singing tonight

Showtime brought a moth and some bizarre wording about Le Twist (see Lines of the Day below), and when it ended we had a whole new series of wacky round robin meetings.. Daniele pitched a vague deal to Rachel (and later told Kalia she should have kept quiet), and Rachel didn't tell Jordan & Shelly about it.. Shelly easily knew something wasn't right there (partly because Rachel's such a bad liar) and she stomped up to HOH hollering "You're all lying!"

For a long time it looked like Lawon would go 4-2 but now they might be back to the original 6-0 plan that the HOH crowd apparently forgot about.. I just hope Lawon comes back in the revolving door, and that'll remain my dream unless/until Julie destroys it Thursday night


Ratings - Kalia Ratings special edition

Ratings are based on Kalia in honor of her unusual HOH week

I still don't know why they gave me my boyfriend's belt? I mean I asked for a mic belt but I guess they misunderstood me, anyway I thought it was my boyfriend's belt and that was confusing but I guess it wasn't. I wish it had been his but I can't remember what he looks like. I'm their favorite when I go into Diary because I can speak in complete sentences. I won Best Interview in a pageant once, did you know that? It's true, you can check the tapes, and that's why they like me best in there. They always say I should just go ahead and start talking about whatever they want to hear about so I do and they love it. Sometimes they don't answer right away when I stop to take a breath but I know they're still there listening to me because they love me. I do too.

Paired with Dominic - GOLDEN KEY
Won: One week elf suit
I'll have you know that I wanted to nominate and evict him from the start, even before I brilliantly won the HOH comp, which was one of my finest moments on Big Brother 13 if I say so myself. It reminds me of the time I was in a pageant and I was so nervous because I had my period and my dress didn't fit right but once I went out on that stage I was fantastic! Let me sing a few bars for you now.. [cut to fishies]

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
THIS GAME IS SO HARD but it's really important to form personal relationships that will last forever and I have one of those, her name is Danielle and she knows EVERYTHING about this game, almost as much as me, and I never thought I'd meet someone on this show who would be SUCH a good friend to me. She listens to everything I have to say and I say a lot and she tells me when I'm right and she knows I always am. This was NOT her HOH week, it was MINE and you need to remember that. I can prove it because Big Brother put a sign in my HOH room that says KALIA'S ROOM and also because my other best friend in here is about to be evicted thanks to me and nobody else, I'm not afraid to make a BIG MOVE and I did! Wait, what just happened?

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
I really wanted to nominate Adam so I put up Jeff because that's how you have to play this game! That's what Dani says anyway. It's so much harder than it looks on television, believe you me! I have a FANTASTIC LIFE and I should have stayed in it maybe because while it's really fun being a TV star somehow everything I want to do gets turned around. Why did I nominate him? Now he's all mad at me and he's coming after me and he's scary! It's not surprising since I'm such a big threat in this game, they're all after me and I have to win HOH again to be safe, which I can because I'm a COMPETITOR and NOT A FLOATER.

Paired with Jeff
I guess she's kind of cute in a blonde way but she never stops talking and that makes me crazy! I try to get a word or 200 in and I just can't with her so I just listen and then later I talk twice as much to prove I can. She reminds me of this girl I knew once when I was dating a guy who was a DJ in New York because I lived there once. I'm cosmopolitan and a sex blogger just like Sex and the City but I don't have the right shoes so I didn't get the job just like I didn't get the job as Rudy Cosby, but my time will come because I'm going to be a STAR! I love to sing and I'm pretty good at it, let me give you a few bars of.. [cut to fishies]

Paired with Lawon
That's ME-E-E-E-E-E-E-E!! See what a good singer I am? I have the best life outside of here, I'm a bartender part-time and a blogger - I mean WRITER! but I can't pay my rent so I hope I get to stay to the end and earn jury money or else I'll be homeless after this. I grew up comfortable in suburbia and maybe one day I'll have a steady job so I can pay my rent but it's much better just being ME-E-E-E-E-E in my fabulous life! It'll be even better when I win Big Brother 13 because then I'll be able to pay for doctors and birth control and not have to have my sister get it for me for free or go to Planned Parenthood with all those teenage losers. Did you know I starred in 'Hello Dolly' once? 'Well hello-o-o-o, Dolly, it's so nice to..' [cut to fishies]

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
I love my homey so much! We'll be friends forever even though he isn't my type because I like gangsta thug types and he's just - well, he's just Lawon! I have so many friends now in my fabulous life but there's always room for one more! Make that two with Danielle, no three with Porsh, I think she's a friend? I'm not sure but I KNOW Lawon and I will be friends forever and ever, especially texting, OH MY GOD I love to text with my friends! Wait, I put him up and he's going to be evicted - oh, he won't hold that against me, he's my FRIEND! Hand me those chips.

Paired with Keith - GOLDEN KEY
She's so funny sometimes, at least I think she is but it's hard to tell sometimes since she never stops talking once she starts! Whenever I feel like having a little snack I look at her and she gained more weight than me so I'm going to have a little snack now. She's been a real good friend this week so I'm still not sure why I almost put her up in Jeff's place, it's like a dream or something. Danielle set me straight there, by letting me talk about it so much until I talked some sense into myself and put up our mutual best friend instead. Wait a minute, what just happened here?? THIS HOUSE! THIS GAME! IT'S SO STRESSFUL!!

Paired with Brendon
She's another one I really want out of here since she's coming after me since I'm her biggest threat in this game since I'm such a strong competitor and NOT A FLOATER! I won something. No, I really did, it was on television I think. They said it would be anyway. I can't WAIT to get out of here and see myself on TV and text to my friends and HAVE SEX! and get the kind of snacks I like. The ones they give me here are okay but I want my own. Wait, where was I? Oh yes, Rachel has to be evicted! She scares me. So I nominated her in a BIG MOVE and she's going out and I did it TA-DA-A-A-A-A! I mean - wait, what just happened here?

Paired with Cassi - GOLDEN KEY
I don't get her or why she's here and I really don't trust her but I'm glad somebody cleans up this place, there's crumbs EVERYWHERE.

News & updates

Revive-a-Hamster is on! The winner of the viewer poll of the four evictees to date will compete with this 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. Also, it's not right to let someone end up on the jury who has missed one to four weeks.

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 will get good with 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.

Add mobile access when you get your feeds! iPhone/iPad users need iOS4 or higher and can watch via the SuperPass page using Safari browser. Android users need Android 2.2 or higher with Flash, and can use the free app available from Android Market. Either platform requires an active SuperPass subscription plus additional mobile access fee.
