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
Kalia & Daniele are nominated
Porsche, Kalia, Daniele are Have-not


Take a swig whenever anyone mentions Dick, Keith, Cassi, Dominic or Lawon.. take two if someone mentions Brendon



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.

Eureka (Wednesday)

Shelly came across the chess pieces in their pantry hiding place this morning, and put them back on the chess board - so far Daniele & Kalia haven't been openly accused of taking them.. later Shelly told Jordan that Brendon's duck is in the HOH toilet tank, courtesy of Porsche - I don't know how she knows that, other than she seems to know everything that goes on in there.. Daniele asked about the mysterious return of the chess pieces, complaining that she gets blamed for all the thievery in there

The camera came out and they did their poses.. Jeff also took some pics of the habitat decor, and he made some inquiries as to name spellings for his blog.. apparently nothing came of Daniele's whatever last night, so it may have been her retainer - at any rate, it seems to be a non-issue now

Jeff did his blog, including hi's to Tony, Josie and Fara, he hopes everything's okay with Dick, and that he can't believe the evictees were in sequester so long.. he said Rachel's "a handful to say the least" but she means well and has a big heart.. for Porsche, "your guess is as good as mine, I've talked to her for an hour in 55 days".. he said Daniele's "not happy with Big Jeff right now, and just leave it at that".. he said it was nice meeting Kalia in the beginning but did she drink too much of Daniele's Kool-aid, and that it'll be nice to meet her again when they get out.. and he said Adam's a good sport


"That's what she said"

So said Big Brother after they got a practice apparatus that elicited comments about balls and holes.. it's a long, heavy meandery board they have to roll a ball down - their instruction sheet said everyone should practice

Jordan told Rachel about the duck in the toilet tank so she fished it out, and then she found Brendon's tinfoil replacement turtle in the downstairs tank.. Rachel muttered "those bitches!" and set off on a rampage around the house, digging through stuff looking for her dog, and taking other stuff.. Shelly was in the bathroom and acted innocent - she asked Rachel if she was okay, and said "you're walking with such purpose!" in a brilliant comedic understatement

Once again, the evening was full of promise but once again, sadly for us, it came to nothing: Rachel was called to Diary right about then, and when she came out she put back the things she'd hidden.. Daniele & Porsche found out the items they'd hidden had been found, and Daniele said she'll probably get blamed for it since she gets "blamed for everything".. Porsche complained to Daniele that Kalia was hating on her, and I don't think Daniele practiced the ball thingy at all

As far as I can tell, Daniele will be leaving tomorrow but nothing's certain til Julie says so.. it's possible Shelly's whole campaign was an attempt to sabotage Adam and/or Rachel, and heaven help all of them if there any hinky votes - Jeff's already getting snippy about Adam's continual reinforcement speeches.. my biggest question of the day is why was Rachel stopped from taking & hiding things when others have been doing it for weeks? Maybe they were afraid of having to do some last minute editing, or of having storylines they've ignored pop up on tomorrow's live show.. zing!


11th hour flip

Rachel and Daniele faced off in the Have-not room and ran the gamut of blame, tears, how much money a mutual acquaintance makes, apologies (phony, hollow and reasonably sincere), Daniele telling Rachel that Shelly took her puppy "because she hates you", and whispery cahoots that indicated the flip could be back on again - flashback 8/25 1.02am

The fallout spread in various directions and carried on past 4am.. as of now, it looks like Rachel, Shelly & Porsche will vote to evict Kalia - but Rachel & Daniele are letting everyone think they're still fighting.. as always, nothing's ever definite until Julie says so


Eating, sleeping, bashing and tension (Tuesday)

That's about all they do lately, but feedsters are pretty much just interested in the latter.. it's possible we're imagining a lot of the tension in hopes of a Jeff vs. Daniele blow-up that might never come but here's hoping it does, and soon

Shelly continued her apparent campaign to flip the vote by making a pitch to Rachel.. Jeff has no idea this is going on, as evidenced by his continual venting about Daniele and pretty much everyone but Shelly - unfortunately for us, he keeps venting in private rather than making any sort of stink out in the open.. Daniele made a big campaign speech to Adam at a peculiar time, when they were all on outside lockdown - voices don't carry out there like it might seem to us they do, but one-on-one serious game chat is visible to anyone watching for it.. she brought Dick into it, saying he'd hate Adam if he evicts her but Adam could play trivia with them if he doesn't, but Adam didn't agree to anything and once again, no deals were struck

Adam reported to Porsche, who rubbed his shoulders, referenced "Adam's Angels", and said she'd hook him up with Janelle if he keeps Daniele.. I suspect these hamsters think Adam's more starstruck than he is, especially since he's surely aware he'll be in the BB alums club now regardless of what happens.. Adam went on to talk game with Jeff again, and again, still not spilling anything about Shelly.. he told Jeff that in case he hears anything, he's telling everyone he still hasn't made up his mind


Easter Egg-gate 2.0

They got more games from the kiddie aisle, Play-doh and Easter egg kits this time.. Rachel started setting up the dye cups and just as I was wondering where they found Easter egg kits in August, Kalia came along and asked her to boil new eggs to dye and not use any of the dozens already boiled for the Have-nots, since she doesn't like them when the dye seeps in to the egg

That spread like wildfire, with retells all over town.. Jeff jumped on Adam for saying it was a reasonable request, and the fact that the catfish was enjoyed by all.. I'm itching for a big fight in there and it seems inevitable that it's coming, but in the meantime this was a hilarious interlude to tide us over

But all fun screeched to a halt when the cameras found Daniele - she's anything but a happy summer camper thanks to thinking she's on her way out, hating slop, hating Jeff, and hating Rachel.. she even lashed out at Kalia when she tried to get her to perk up a bit, saying how miserable she is and nobody wants to be there more than she does - she may have forgotten she was saying this to her co-nominee, but Kalia came back and tried to peptalk her again, gently, as did Shelly.. Kalia even offered Daniele a hug, but she declined the offer

Hold the presses Flashback 8/24 2.11am F2 for Daniele sneak-eating cookies or something in bed.. there is a penalty vote precedent for that, and from her season too.. earlier she'd moved her leftover HOH cookies to Have-not room so Rachel wouldn't eat them.. arguments are already coming in that it was her retainer or cough drops - I don't know why she'd store either of those under her covers but if so, nothing will come of it (I guess cough drops are legal? Porsche's chomping away on them from 2:07am).. at any rate, it's not up to me to enforce the rules, I'm just reporting it as something interesting.. thanks to Kayla JEH for spotting the sneak


Ratings - Sour Grapes of Wrath edition

Ratings are Tuesday's, based on entertainment value

They're catching flak in our insulated little BB universe again, this time for Diary possibly meddling in order to keep Daniele, adding fuel to the fire she started when she said staff members Jeff & Natalie would quit if she got the boot. I don't know if any of that's true but we did hear Jeff say he wasn't going to let them influence him not to put her up as his re-nom, and we've often heard hamsters talk over the seasons about being nudged to say this or that in their Diaries. It's something to think about, and to listen for. Think about it: they're in there for many cumulative hours in a week and we only get little five-second staged sound bites in over-acted voices on CBS.. something goes on in there. See Reality Blurred's article for a balanced view of the situation.

Paired with Dominic - GOLDEN KEY
Won: One week elf suit
Both sides want his vote and his study tutoring, but both sides can't wait to cut him. He's getting pressure from all corners this week but he continues being friendly to all and possibly oblivious to the very slippery slope he's on. I keep hoping he'll spill to Jeff all the coercement he's getting from Shelly & Daniele because then we'd have one hell of a show, but so far he's keeping mum. He's our nice guy comic relief this year but some feedsters are taking his jokes way too literally.. eh, that's their problem.

Paired with Dick - GOLDEN KEY/TICKET
Won/used: Veto ticket
Downs are for all her threats to rampage if Jeff put her up that have come to nothing. Her status as a born-again newbie falls to pieces when she uses Dick as a campaign threat, especially when she's said all season that she doesn't talk to him and wants to get out from under his BB shadow. That said, she's slipping back to her BB8 whiny miseryguts persona, but snapping at her teamie and co-nominee was way out of line, even for her. The sense of entitlement from all the veterans rages on and the sooner they're all gone, the better.

Paired with Jordan
Won: $15k
Downs for being yet another hamster who seems to feel entitled to win just because he's lost before. He's got an extreme case of HOH-itis and we all know he's a lot more fun when he's losing. He keeps ranting in private about Daniele but he won't say anything to her face, and then he jumped on Adam for having the audacity to say something about the Easter egg situation. Meanwhile, Jeff's almost to the point of decreeing who anyone can or can't talk to, and he's seriously lacking his usual one-liners (but the Happy Meal one was pretty good).

Paired with Jeff
Won: One week catsuit + tutu
She's become an extra since she dumped her tutu.

Paired with Lawon
Won: Caribbean trip
Her ridiculous stink about hard-boiled eggs and the fallout afterward that provided the extent of the day's comedy were upsworthy, but she's neutralized for failing to react or respond to Daniele lashing out at her when they're in exactly the same boat at the moment. I'm pretty sure Kalia has often said she won't take crap off anyone, but she did, thus depriving us of yet more fireworks that we've earned.

Paired with Keith - GOLDEN KEY
As the only sure survivor of her little group, she's getting a bit cocky and coming out more than usual (and no, that's not a reference to how her clothes fit these days). I like that she's making the most of their crafty stuff and making gifts of the little effigies she makes, especially when she adds subtle little zings to them. In true catty form, she tells her roomies about them, but not the gift recipients.

Paired with Brendon
Like Jordan, she's barely there this week - who saw that coming? It's beautiful irony (that will kill her when she finds out) that she's now being called a floater by just about all of them.

Paired with Cassi - GOLDEN KEY
Won: 24 hours solitary, phone call
Cumulative ups for continuing to stir up shit everywhere she goes, but she still comes out golden and her name is rarely mentioned when the shit she stirred starts to fly. She could be the ultimate teflon hamster: absolutely nothing sticks to her. She's got all the earmarks of an America's Player in their midst, but I don't think any of them have questioned if that's her role.. why is that? Maybe they were guaranteed they wouldn't have one of those this year.

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.
