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


Jeff is Head of Household
Jeff won veto & used it on Porsche
Kalia & Daniele are nominated
Porsche, Kalia, Daniele are Have-not


Take a swig whenever the Have-nots bitch about being Have-nots



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.

Bring on the waffles (Monday)

My computer died for awhile but not much happened Sunday anyway.. Monday kicked off with Jeff using the veto to save Porsche, and he put up Daniele in her place as planned.. Daniele had promised all kinds of mayhem if he did that but as usual, it hasn't happened (yet?)

Daniele did make a pitch to Shelly, swearing on her grandmother's life that if she doesn't vote her out, she'd "never ever" put up Shelly.. either Shelly liked the sound of that or she's still in "mischievous" mode and wants to give us something to watch, so she pitched the idea to Adam & Porsche that they could mutiny against Jeff and save Daniele.. Adam did not mention it to Jeff when they spoke shortly after, nor in a later convo

Later, Shelly & Jordan had a long talk comparing notes all the way back to Cassi, with Shelly proclaiming allegiance to Jorff - who knows what she's up to? Not me.. maybe she's planning to sabotage Adam in order to advance herself.. Jeff got all riled up when Jordan retold to him, like he does.. they got badminton, origami airplane kits, and Bendaroos - Daniele had predicted they'd get activities tonight (maybe her buddies on staff, Jeff & Natalie, tipped her off).. Rachel, Shelly & Adam all went off to bed, but Have-nots and HOH bashed each other from afar into the wee hours

Stolen items inventory, for those keeping track:
  • Daniele took the chess pieces, Kalia hid them, and now they're in the pantry
  • Shelly took & hid Rachel's stuffed dog
  • Porsche took & hid Brendon's first duck, and she may have also taken & hidden his replacement duck but I'm not sure.. one or both of them could be in the HOH toilet tank
  • The whereabouts of Brendon's stuffed turtle Franklin remain a mystery, but I don't think the pool filter has gnashing steel teeth as Diary apparently led him to believe


Zing! (Saturday)

Jeff won the veto, which came on a heavy hip-hop chain this time, in some sort of puzzle comp.. the Zingbot made an appearance before the comp, razzing Shelly about her smoking, they shouldn't call Jordan dumb because she won't understand it, something about a "23-year-old Porsche with air bags" and "a bigger trunk", Adam and/or Shelly were confused about smoking the competitions and thinking the competition is smoking, and Jeff hasn't proposed yet "because he's not good with questions".. it sounds like Diary also made them do their own zingers, which included Porsche's "Rachel always says nothing comes between her and her man but if I'm the second one out, she won't make it down the aisle.. zing!"

Porsche looked very happy after the comp which was odd, but not so Kalia - she told Shelly she's sure she's Jeff's target and she thinks she'll be going home.. Shelly peptalked her for awhile, like she does, telling her to buck up and start shmoozing.. I think it's safe to say this won't be remembered by Daniele as her best birthday ever

Later afternoon led into evening and a lot of tension in the habitat, thanks in large part to Shelly stirring them up for us once again.. Rachel bitching continued on its usual course along with Rachel bashing at every corner.. it could have been fun tonight but even a meager booze delivery didn't help: they played some poker for mini candy bars and M&Ms, and that was pretty much that until Jeff & Jordan decided to have a colonics date after Big Brother - flashback 8/21 2.03am


BBQ Smackdown: Round 2 Greased Lightning

The rookie grill has been slow to step up to the challenge in its debut season, perhaps intimidated by the fearsome reputation of the retired metal monster, and the added handicap of facing a couple expert grillers hasn't made it easy, but it seems to be ready to step up to the mat now and take someone out

Adam was attempting to clean it up a bit before tonight's dinner prep, when the piece he was working on flew out of his hand and clanged down, very hard and very loud.. Adam walked away in defeat, muttering to himself "What the fuck am I doing?" Porsche (and bloodthirsty Smackdown fans) wanted to know if he'd cut himself but were disappointed when he replied "Nah, I just greased myself, and not in a good way".. so the newbie grill has yet to score a full point by drawing blood from a newbie hamster (or veteran), but at least it's showing it's got some fight in it.. your ticket to the flashback is 8/20 7.35pm

Final score: BBQ ½, Adam 0


Have-not roulette (Friday)

They got the middle sized table for eight, and for some reason Jeff picked who would be the new Have-nots - I still wonder if Julie forgot to announce it as a repercussion for last night's losers.. not surprisingly, he appointed Daniele, Kalia and Porsche, and they got hard-boiled eggs and jalapenos for their extras.. it's the first time for both Daniele & Porsche, and the second for Kalia

Porsche hit up Jeff with a unique campaign style, saying she'd like to stay til she wins a comp - he countered that she took a very long time to start talking game to him.. Rachel's cards made from tea bags were put to use for rummy

Jeff nominated Porsche & Kalia as planned.. they and Daniele moped much of the day, but Daniele perked up enough to try making a cake out of slop flour and Muscle Milk.. Adam gave Jeff his very own pack of cigs as a thank-you for not nominating him.. they picked veto players: all will play but Rachel, who will host

In another first, Porsche talked to Jordan for awhile.. Rachel had a little booze and poked Daniele a bit about being grouchy: Daniele retold it several times as did others, for a total of six retells at last count.. Rachel bashing carries on wherever she isn't

Midnight brought Daniele's 25th birthday complete with a tinfoil crown and a birthday sash made by Kalia, and an hour later Jordan's costume came off to much aplomb, but very little feeds: she & Adam did their little routine but Jeff had to hum the song with no lyrics, Jordan hummed "The Stripper" theme so that was blocked too, and then Jordan asked Diary "was that ok?" - apparently it wasn't, as she was sent back out to ask them all what they'll miss about her costume, like they did with Adam's elf


Ratings - Dingbot 3000 special edition

Ratings are Saturday's for now, based on random

Too bad they couldn't find 14 fresh hamsters out of the thousands of applicants they got - but then they'd have to actually watch all those tapes.. ding!

Paired with Dominic - GOLDEN KEY
Won: One week elf suit
He's a great superfan, he repeats all the best game chat clichés from every season.. ding!

Paired with Dick - GOLDEN KEY/TICKET
Won/used: Veto ticket
Paging the Big Brother veto queen, paging the veto queen - sorry, nobody here by that name.. ding!

Paired with Jordan
Won: $15k
He's determined to backdoor Daniele no matter how much Diary tries to influence him, but he's practically a CBS employee at this point and he might not get on his next show if he defies them now.. ding!

Paired with Jeff
Won: One week catsuit + tutu
She didn't get a single piece of the puzzle today but she doesn't have to worry, she's got a serious boyfriend in another state who's the pinup boy of cat ladies everywhere, and he wants to go on a colonics date.. ding!

Paired with Lawon
Won: Caribbean trip
She's our personal little ray of sunshine, especially now that she has to rely on Daniele & Porsche to make her junk food from scratch.. ding!

Paired with Keith - GOLDEN KEY
Who? ..ding!

Paired with Brendon
It didn't seem possible, but her poker announcing with the cute Jersey-ish accent might have made them all hate her a little more than they already did.. ding!

Paired with Cassi - GOLDEN KEY
Won: 24 hours solitary, phone call
Zingbot got her worried today, but she can relax: CBS would never put her smoking on TV.. ding!

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.
