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
Adam & Shelly are nominated
Adam won the veto
Shelly's in solitary 24 hours
Jordan's in a catsuit & tutu 1 week
Nobody is Have-not


Take a swig whenever Jordan says 'wool' (her version of 'well')
Thanks to Facebook runners-up Deborah R & Valerie E (the Shellyspeak game has to go on hiatus)



Big Brother 13 at iTunesicon
Season Pass or individual episodes

Brendon was revived a week after eviction after apparently beating the other three evictees to date in a CBS poll, and beating August 11 evictee Lawon in a live ball-chute comp.

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 called 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.

A very long wait (Saturday)

A rare afternoon veto comp was long as they often are, but worse, when they came back we had no indication of who had won for the longest time.. even normally reliable sources were posting the wrong info.. finally it came out on the feeds that Adam had won, and I hope somebody gives him a slap when he gets home for not letting us know sooner - he should know better

Daniele, Shelly & Adam played along with Jeff, Jordan and Kalia, and apparently Porsched hosted yet again.. it was the trading off prizes comp: other results appear to be Jordan won the catsuit - this time it's green with a pink tutu, goofy slippers, I'M WITH STUPID on the front and KICK ME on the back, required pigtails, and a beaniecopter hat that says DUNCE - she loves it and wears it well, and it worked especially nice for a repeat of her tooty-toot rendition of "Saints Go Marching In".. Jeff won another $5,000.. Kalia won a Caribbean trip.. Daniele won a veto ticket, guaranteeing her a spot in next week's comp.. Shelly's in solitary confinement in the Have-not room, with bread and slop, a port-a-potty, and a phone call home when she gets out - presumably in 24 hours, or possibly sooner as in the past

Meanwhile there's this: Porsche had said on previous night-before-comps that she'd like to put laxatives in others' food.. last night she did put something into the house Muscle Milk supply and stirred it through - Daniele & Kalia watched, seemed surprised and made comments about it, but didn't stop her: flashback 8/13 12.08am F1/2.. most think it was Benefiber - a container on the counter in the FB looks like it could be Metamucil? but I don't know if that's what she was scooping from.. please address questions or concerns about this to CBS and not to me, I'm just passing it along.. thanks to @IsBallygood for passing it to me, and to @Princess_Bitchy for reminding me Porsche's been cooking and baking a lot lately for them all - hmmm


A lot can change in a day

Yesterday Shelly was stomping around the habitat, stirring up confrontations like Godzilla - tonight she's locked up in her padded cell all alone

She looked pretty sad most of the evening but she had visits from Jordan, who described her costume and they both laid on the floor so Shelly could sort of see it under the door.. and from Daniele, who told her to relax, that she was going to put up Brendon and get him out (which is what she said yesterday she'd say to everyone, and that it would be a lie - but that was yesterday).. Porsche joined them for a bit, and Jordan paid a repeat visit later.. Shelly sounded okay, she's looking forward to her phone call, and is probably enjoying the break somewhat - however she was unable to run damage control when retells of yesterday's shenanigans picked up again

Jeff & Jordan had a very, very long strategy chat after Showtime and discussed their options, including wondering if Shelly was of any value to them and most every scenario possible from here on out.. Jeff seems bent on winning BB13 (even sounding at times like he's entitled to it like Brendon & Rachel do) while Jordan said she'd be fine going to jury, but they pretty much concluded the same as most hamster strategy chats, that they have to win HOH.. flashback 8/14 12.40am for the start of three parts: Jorff, Brendon joins, then Jorff again.. Jordan's a lot savvier about all this than many give her credit for

Last season on this day, Day 43, Rachel was back for her return visit and had her face-off with Ragan - it seems like it was much later in the game but it wasn't.. a year later, we still have her & Brendon on our feeds

If you STILL don't have the feeds, you really shouldn't rely on me so much: this is a very, very good time to get a 3-day free trial - all hell is finally breaking loose


Flashback city (Friday)

The more things change, the more they stay the same, especially when it comes to this show.. we're right back where we were two weeks ago, only we don't have Lawon around to keep it amusing.. the feedmasters are still mostly stuck on Brendon & Rachel or Daniele & Kalia so I've been paying even less attention than before, but Shelly made me laugh when she was complaining about Rachel constantly draping herself over Brendon, and her impromptu demonstration on Adam

Things started to shift when pre-noms meetings finally began with Shelly talking with Daniele, which turned into an argument about what Kalia did or didn't say, so Shelly sent Daniele to fetch Kalia (flashback 8/12 1.50pm).. Shelly went from confronting Kalia to casting doubt on Porsche, to ego-stroking Daniele after Kalia left, to casting doubt on Kalia, to an apology for misunderstandings/confusion and not believing Daniele 100%, ending with Daniele talking about her personal stuff (rare), a hug and a "love you" from Daniele.. Shelly retold fairly accurately to Jeff & Jordan, and Kalia retold to Porsche with editorial changes, derision, and 1,000 faces (see Links of the Day)

Next up was Shelly vs Kalia (8/12 3.50pm) which led to casting doubt on Porsche, their race convo, use of BB winnings (to charity, said Shelly), which all led to more apologies and another hug.. finally Shelly confronted Porsche directly (8/12 4.23pm) about all the you said/she said/she said, her lapdance on TV and what will her father think, culminating with Shelly walking away and no hug.. as always, retells carried on unchecked, usually lasting longer than the original convos

Meanwhile, Brendon made an everlasting pitch to Daniele, with Rachel in tow.. apparently he was somewhat successful as Daniele told Kalia she wants to put up Adam & Shelly as pawns, lying to them that her intent would be to backdoor Brendon, and that Brendon could get rid of Jeff the following week and/or anyone else could get rid of Brendon, or something - flashback 8/12 4.50pm.. she did nominate Adam & Shelly

Post-noms, the slop continued to hit the fan: flashback 8/12 7.16pm for Shelly vs Rachel, and 7.38pm for Jeff vs Jordan - yep, that's right.. retells, rehashes, talk-downs and rev-ups carried on, like they do.. Shelly melted down in tears more than once, trashing Rachel to pretty much anyone who'd listen, and pretty much all of them agreed and wondered why Shelly thought "Rachel lies" was news

As far as who's lying about what, I'm afraid I've drawn the line this year at tracking pinky-swears: I'm spread way too thin to keep count of every handshake, fist hit, contradictory F3 arrangement, and desperation deal that pops up.. anyway, everybody knows pinky-swears are the only truly valid currency when it comes to Big Brother


Ratings - Ball of Confusion edition

Ratings are Friday's with a few additions, based on entertainment value

It's hard to follow all this when Kalia keeps singing and all of them keep talking about Diary, yet we're the ones who continue being punished for it instead of them. You try to follow a conversation but it's impossible when it keeps strobing in & out of fishies because Kalia's singing on another feed. It's also annoying to keep gettng complaints for same - it's not my doing!

I don't much care that they posted the poll percentages - the timing of it just shows they felt forced to answer something to all the flak, and we'll never know if it's accurate or not. But it likely is: CBS-only viewers hugely outnumber us and they have short memories, Brendon went out on a 'noble' note , and lots of feedsters chose Brendon in order to upset Daniele & Kalia, which it did for a half hour or so. I'm tired of the whole fiasco and you'll recall I urged a no-vote boycott, so don't blame me for the mess we've got now.

On another topic, I don't follow the comps closely on the CBS shows but apparently there's a rather major discrepancy about the gross drinks Have-not one? Sounds like they omitted Adam & Rachel's participation and the final Jordan vs. Adam round completely. Maybe it didn't affect the outcome but since the drama after that comp was higher than slop usually calls for, it sounds like they went a bit too heavy-handed on the editing of this one. Thanks @Johnny_B_Utah for the scoop.

Paired with Dominic - GOLDEN KEY
Won: One week elf suit
Saturday: Big ups for winnng the veto when he had to (again, it's the pattern) but a resounding neutral for stringing us all along for a couple hours trying to figure it out while he played their guessing game.
Friday: It's ironic (and hopefully not foretelling) that the first Line of the Day I took down today was his about pawns going home eventually, which was hours before he became one again. He kept his cool like a permapawn should, but I think he may have spilled more than he should have in a few of his too-long convos today. When the day's dust settled, he gave himself and/or us a long string of 'I/we fucked up' about booting Lawon and I wanted to yell out YES, YOU DID! I don't want him or Shelly to go, so I will await these veto results more eagerly than usual.

Paired with Rachel
Won: Revival
He might be back technically, but that doesn't mean I have to acknowledge him anymore. I've had enough of this guy.

Paired with Dick - GOLDEN KEY/TICKET
Won: Veto ticket
Saturday: I still don't know what she's going to do (and I don't trust that I can believe what she says about it to any of them), but I'm content to wait til Monday to find out.
Friday: Since I have trouble listening to her for long and I can't listen to Brendon or Kalia at all, I'm at a loss as to WTF she's doing. Her quick pantry chat with Kalia was immediately before noms so I'm pretty sure that plan is where we're at tonight: namely telling everyone that Brendon's her backdoor target when she & he are acting that part. But we know Brendon's a lousy actor and he's been all calm since noms, so the others are going to figure it out soon if they haven't yet. I have no clue who Daniele will put up at re-noms if the opportunity arises, but her 'real' targets seem to be Jeff & Brendon as always, even if she can't do much about it this week.

Paired with Jordan
Won $15k
It was surprising to hear him yell at Jordan even if he had valid points, and it was great to hear her tell him to stop yelling at her. He gave Shelly some good support and peptalking, while not overdoing it, and maybe some of it worked.

Paired with Jeff
Won: One week catsuit + tutu
Saturday: If ever there was a costume that fit its hamster to a tee, this is the one. I hope she doesn't get evicted in it, but it would be a memorable moment for Julie's couch.
Friday: See Jeff, plus she put her foot down and almost called another house meeting when the stories started flying - but that's what Jeff got mad at her about. Ups are for how funny she was during sex chat, twice, and how shocked & funny she was to learn about certain fetishes, 'Two Girls, One Cup' and the like.

Paired with Lawon
Won: Caribbean trip
Friday: Her latest complaint is 'geographic tongue' - no lie. I googled, it's a real thing, but it's described as 'benign', 'annoying' and 'not serious' so I wish she'd stop talking about it like she's got rabies. Maybe giving her tongue a rest from the constant talking and constant eating would help a little.

Paired with Keith - GOLDEN KEY
Saturday: I don't know what she put in the Muscle Milk but it was definitely something, and it shocked fellow mean girls Daniele & Kalia.
Friday: Her usual monotone barely changed when she was defending herself against Shelly's long-building attack, so we can count her out of any future drama potential.

Paired with Brendon
Saturday: She's hardly even there anymore. I sure hope Daniele's going to renege on whatever she agreed with them so Brendon gets the hell out of there, away from her, and off my feeds. Again.
Friday: As expected, the recently liberated Rachel is right back to the cowed & controlled doormat in love now that her Buki's back. And no, my Lines of the Day are not made up: she really asked Brendon if she should wash her hair today. She had a very good friend in Shelly who listened to her rant and cry for hours, calmed her down & peptalked her all week and helped save her from certain eviction, and now Rachel's turned on her. No wonder Shelly's on the warpath now: who wouldn't be? The best & worst of Rachel today was her repeatedly asking Brendon for backup with little response from Buki-boy, since he didn't even know what they were talking about, and for making a stink about sleeping arrangements since she insisted on sharing a bed with him even though no doubles were available.

Paired with Cassi - GOLDEN KEY
Won: 24 hours solitary, phone call
Saturday: I hope she gets a nice break in there and regenerates herself after all her drama, and I hope her phone call doesn't make her crumble again.
Friday: Ups for high drama and hours of it, between fights before noms and after (none of which probably had much to do with the noms), makeup/apology sessions, and several sessions of meltdown tears that probably did include being nom'd on top of everything else, she had a rough day. She topped it off by stress eating out of a bag of chips followed by two platefuls of somethings, bagels maybe - even Jeff said "damn!" but at least she's eating again. She's got it in for Rachel in a big way now, and I hope she 'revives' after this roller-coaster day and I hope she doesn't go anywhere on Thurday. I also hope I haven't been putting too much faith in her puppetry skills, and that this was just a temporary derailment rather than total defeat.

Paired with Kalia
Won: nothing
My favorite hamster in years, he came out with his best stuff late nights so many missed it, but he gave great Diary, wore kooky outfits and officiated at the trashbag wedding with tremendous style & flair. He caught flak for pawning himself out the door but his teamies encouraged it and put him up, so it's not all on him. He was Lawonderful with a fantastic laugh and he'll be missed.

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 & behavior did nothing for me.

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 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 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.
