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


Brendon evicted 5-1
Jeff is Head of Household
Nobody is nominated
Jordan's in a catsuit & tutu 1 week
Nobody is Have-not


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



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.

Primping out of uniform

Jordan was called in to get scolded for doing her hair & makeup in her own clothes so she immediately changed back into her costume, because that's how she is.. in comparison, Kalia was "reamed" (her word) for her constant singing, but she still does some of that.. Rachel & Brendon continued isolating themselves, which was considerate of them, while the other girls primped and the guys laid around

Overprimpage caused a shower & toilet backup before the show - flashback 8/18 4.40 for the gooey event.. Brendon walked the plank again, tying BB6/7 Kaysar's record at three, and our long national nightmare is over

HOH comp was the skating in oil (soap this time) to fill a large container with a little scoop each lap, with rain and bubbles flying for them to choke on.. Jeff won after about 90 minutes of tough competing by all plus a few hard spills, so we've got yet another vet (or two) upstairs, but he's the first male to win it this year.. get a SuperPass free trial to watch where we go from here

I thought Have-not would figure into this comp since they had a food vote, but they don't need a food comp to run on Sunday's show and at any rate, they finally opened the backyard and didn't build one, so I have no idea what's going on there


A different HOH room reveal

Jeff flipped the script when he made it real by inviting them to put on a fake smile to come see his stuff, but the smiles were genuine, especially when he read a note from his little niece Marley - awww

He got a letter from her dad/Jeff's brother, the usual childhood and family pics, a Chicago shirt so he can represent, a Bob Marley CD, and food & snacks galore, plus a new-to-them dark color/masculine HOH robe and black slippers.. he also got a "jumbo Chapstick" and some hot sauce labelled as 800 times hotter than jalapenos

Marley's note referred to Brown Spots but Jeff couldn't figure out what that meant and they couldn't find it - Marley asked that Jeff return it to her, so it sounds like a Special.. maybe Diary kept it for safekeeping, as the pranking kleptomania carries on in there: Shelly took and hid Rachel's stuffed dog tonight, and Porsche still has Brendon's original duck stashed away, and possibly the replacement he was given in sequester the first time around

When all but Jordan had left, Rachel stayed behind to shmooze but Shelly came back up a bit later and took the opportunity to lay into Rachel one more time - flashback 8/18 11.29pm.. it sounds like Jeff will probably nominate Kalia & Porsche, with the idea to backdoor Daniele if she doesn't win veto, while not renewing their feud if she does


Ratings - Josie! Josie! Josie! edition

Ratings are based on entertainment value
VTE = Voted to evict

Ups are for Josie all the way! Fire these losers and give her her own show.

Ups are also for Julie's tone that made it very clear that voters who brought back Brendon were to blame for this last lost week ('who YOU chose, America'), but I'm wondering if she forgot to tell them the last so many places in tonight's race would be Have-nots this week. They forgot to mention that Daniele was toasted for that long convo with Jeff & Jordan, and once again they implied a deal had been struck when it hadn't. Daniele got another HOH interview, which highlighted the fact that Rachel did not, twice. I'm very disappointed that they didn't air any of Brendon browbeating, berating, and telling Rachel where & how to sit, so I guess I'll have to carry out my threat of actively seeking out more goofs. A new one was added today, this time in the Android app.

Paired with Dominic - GOLDEN KEY
Won: One week elf suit
VTE Brendon
He did pretty good in the comp especially for a heavy smoker, and he recovered from his spills well. His skating shoes were too small and his feet hurt, and I only hope he doesn't end up blaming tonight's loss on big feet, or there will be hell to pay. Getting sore nipples and letting Daniele nail polish them was odd, but that's Adam. He was a bit cocky when he talked to Jeff but he seems to have gotten away with it so it's all good.

Paired with Dick - GOLDEN KEY/TICKET
Won: Veto ticket
No vote (HOH)
See Adam re nail polish nips. Other than that, while she's matured by leaps & bounds since BB8, she remains a very poor cheerleader and those sudsy skating hamsters could have used a good one.

Paired with Jordan
Won: $15k
VTE Brendon
Ups for winning a very difficult comp and for giving us and them a fun HOH room reveal. His one-liners remain the highlight of many days, but I don't know if he'll be up to par this week since he's usually a lot funnier when he's losing.

Paired with Jeff
Won: One week catsuit + tutu
VTE Brendon
She skated hard and did pretty well, and her tutu was a mess which made it extra cute. She got some extra soap in her eyes and was exhausted & miserable so she went to bed too early.

Paired with Lawon
Won: Caribbean trip
VTE Brendon
She didn't do great in the comp but she kept at it and did better than most of her haters could do, so more power to her. She bitched for a bit about Rachel shmoozing upstairs but she's barely left the HOH room for three weeks so tough teddy-bears on that one. She was silent for 20-30 minutes tonight, in a talkative group setting, and I think that was a record - maybe she was realizing she's about to be nominated. I'm very much looking forward to seeing her on the block.

Paired with Keith - GOLDEN KEY
VTE Brendon
She did really well during the comp and might have won if Jeff had taken some spills or if he didn't have such a well-timed sliding style. As I write this, I'm listening to her yammering in the greenlight but I have no idea what she's talking about. When can I get that Porsche translator ring?

Paired with Brendon
VTE Shelly
Kudos to her for no meltdown, no tantrum, and no tributes for her lost Buki. She was almost sad in her isolation tonight but then she reverted to her old self for a minute by staying behind the HOH gathering to transparently work on Jeff for a bit. But to her credit, she barely said a word when Shelly opened fire on her unexpectedly.

Paired with Cassi - GOLDEN KEY
Won: 24 hours solitary, phone call
No vote (nominee)
Like Adam, she did pretty good for a smoker and I give her credit for that, especially after having back/neck problems all week - her back's in real bad shape now. I also give her credit for taking Rachel's dog - she said yesterday she wanted to be mischievous and I'm all for anything that increases anyone's paranoia in there. But most of all I'm glad we were able to get to know Josie a bit better on Thursday's show: what a very special little girl! Easily the star of the show for a second episode in a row.

Paired with Rachel
Won: 1 week revival
His return was twice 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 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.
