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

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.

Compound fractures

A tipsy Daniele talked to Jeff & Jordan for a very long time last night/this morning, adding a lot of fertilizer to the many anti Rachel & Brendon seeds already planted there.. that may have contributed to Jeff having a spat with Rachel today, with Brendon participating - flashback 8/17 12.58pm.. that led to another episode of The Brendon & Rachel Show with his usual lecture to her that included a textbook illustration of the classic #facepalm, and then he folded her up to pack away til next time

But Rachel wasn't finished yet: Jordan lashed out at her about having to babysit her all week, and that one had enough volume that it qualifies as a noteworthy fight for my tally.. Jeff & Brendon chimed in, like they do.. the hypocrisy and comedy were both thick - flashback 8/17 1.59pm for that one

Before that they all got along for an hour to do their happy family silly picture poses, which included flight lessons and/or cheerleading squad impressions this time


Fun & games

Most of them seemed to get over the afternoon's activities okay, but a long lockdown for probable apparatus building made them all a little stir crazy.. Brendon & Rachel isolated themselves for her to groom & massage him, plus the ever-inescapable slurpydurp, and she did some working out for tomorrow's comp

The rest of them gathered in the living room for some trivia games and chit-chat - it was light & fun without the Gruesome Twosome© dragging everything down.. highlights include Shelly's E.T. impression followed by Jordan teaching them how to do her tooty-toot - flashback 8/17 11.34pm; Shelly's very hardcore game of Simon Says - 11/14 11.43pm; and my personal favorite, Adam saying he'd opt to keep this site over his Facebook fan page if he had to choose - 8/14 11.56pm.. that was really touching and I'm once again floored by having such a dedicated & loyal reader in there! I've said it before and I'll say it again: Hamsterwatchers are the best, "period!"


Ratings - Josie's a Star edition

Ratings are based on entertainment value

I was confused by a lot of things on Wednesday's show including Revive-a-Hamster being a 'surprise twist', Rachel 'going for a hail Mary', calling Jordan's costume the 'most humiliating unitard ever' while leaving out the many times she said she LOVES it, and why they implied Shelly's 'what would you think' vague clip was a confirmed F3 deal for the second time. Daniele's 'I suck at lying' captioned quote was interesting and the Jorff bits were cute, if a bit overkill. The editing of the Shelly vs. Rachel fight was not bad except they left out Shelly's bad, no good, horrible day that led up to it, but her phone call was one of their finest moments, even if they were going for a cheap & easy hankie ploy, thanks to all three of that scene's stars, especially little Josie.

They better show some Brendon on Rachel on Thursday's show or I'll start to actually hunt for goofs. So far, all 22 on the tally have either jumped out at me or been forwarded by helpful Hamsterwatchers. Note to TPTB: Don't take this threat lightly. In the off-season, I'm a professional editor/proofreader.. be afraid, be very afraid.

Paired with Dominic - GOLDEN KEY
Won: One week elf suit
His shout-outs for this site have become a joke at best, and at worst an annoyance for most of them in there and many out here, but him saying tonight that he'd rather keep this site over a Facebook fan page blew me away. Sure it was a game but he seemed to put some thought into his answer, and I'm truly touched and humbled. That's upsworthy on its own 'obvi' but he also continues to keep things light and moving along while most of the others have slipped halfway into their mid-season comas.

Paired with Rachel
Won: Revival
It's just a few more hours now until he's evicted for the third time and ties BB6/7 Kaysar's record. I think it's safe to say this chump won't be missed to the same degree or by as many people as Kaysar was.

Paired with Dick - GOLDEN KEY/TICKET
Won: Veto ticket
I would have given her ups if I'd done ratings yesterday for her drinky night and overnight harangues at Shelly and Jorff, but today she didn't do much but lay around HOH as usual. She did participate in the group games later though, and that's something.

Paired with Jordan
Won: $15k
Good for him for laying into Rachel and Brendon even if it came along at this late date, for popping his usual funnies even as he lost his temper, and for keeping a straight face while Brendon lectured him about healthy relationships. Bonus ups for asking 'Is it a boy band?' two or three times during music trivia games after Jordan let his deep dark secret slip on CBS. He didn't think much of Adam picking me over Facebook, but I won't hold that against him.

Paired with Jeff
Won: One week catsuit + tutu
Big ups for letting Rachel have it about being so ungrateful for all Jordan's babysitting efforts last week, and bigger ups for telling Jeff later she wished she'd been in her costume instead of bikini for it, because it would be cuter on tv. She's right there - her beaniecopter was spinning up a storm during an afternoon breeze - but CBS does like their fighting 'kini girls so I'm sure they won't ask for a redo. To top it off, she gave tooty-toot lessons and did a cute dance with Adam.

Paired with Lawon
Won: Caribbean trip
Today she said she's lost weight since she went in there and if that's true, I think she'll have a very successful career when she gets out. A book and infomercial deal selling her patented Continuous Snack Food Diet program is bound to be a big hit.

Paired with Keith - GOLDEN KEY
She began her usual float away from Daniele & Kalia and back to whoever else would talk to her yesterday, in preparation for a possible new regime, but otherwise she continues to bring not much to the feeds since she stopped stealing booze and fiddling with their Muscle Milk.

Paired with Brendon
Say what you will about her (and you do), but this afternoon's festivities ran three rounds: Jeff v Rachel, Brendon v Rachel, and Jordan v Rachel in fast succession, and she came through all that like a trooper. No meltdowns, no hissy-fits or temper tantrums, not even any center of attention grandstanding. I expect some down times after Buki goes, but she's come a long way and I'm more than ready to see her on her own (again).

Paired with Cassi - GOLDEN KEY
Won: 24 hours solitary, phone call
She kept wanting to do something mischievous today and I don't think she got around to it (or if she did, I missed it) but I give her credit for at least trying to wake them out of their comas, and being successful a few times too. Her phone call was one of the best we've seen yet, in large part due to little Josie who was easily the star of tonight's show. I'm really glad she got the teacher she wanted - remember how huge that was at that age? You go, Josie!

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.
